Social Media Tip Tuesday

We’re having a contest this time next week on our blog in honor of Social Media Tip Tuesday on August 7, 2012.  We’re still going to give you the social media tips from the past week, but, to sweeten the deal, we’re also giving away a social media prize pack of a Social Media Tip Tuesday t-shirt and a 4GB Social Strand Media USB drive. So be sure to come back and check it out!

And in case you missed it, here are the top social media tips from the past week I gave on Twitter.

  1. Brands that post to #sm outside of business hours report a 20% higher engagement rate. #smtip
  2. Add yourself to Twitter directories like Twellow & WeFollow to be found by like minded people #smtip
  3. Follow a tweetchat for your industry to get ideas for your next company blog #smtip
  4. Host a tweetchat to crowdsource ideas for your next campaign #smtip
  5. Use bookmarking sites to mark every time your company is in the news #smtip
