Social Media Tip Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Social Media Tip Tuesday

Ah, it’s October 30th and it’s not just Social Media Tip Tuesday, it’s also Halloween Eve or Mischief Night as we used to call it when I was a kid. However, in standard fashion, this is not about Halloween or Mischief Night, it’s about the tips I’ve posted over the past week on Twitter.

  1. On Twitter place links 25% of the way through your tweet for the best click-through rate#smtip via @HubSpot
  2. Tweets w/words “via,” “@,” “rt,” “please,” & “check” have higher click-thru rates than those without via @HubSpot#smtip
  3. FB posts pub’d on Sat & Sun receive higher % of likes than those posted during the week –Thursday is lowest #smtip
  4. Descriptions about 200 characters long are repinned the most #smtip#pinterest
