How to measure a Twitter campaign with TweetReach

with one comment

You’ve planned out your Twitter campaign; you’ve strategized and you’re ready to launch. Now, how to measure the impact of those tweet? (You want solid numbers that reflect all of your hard work, after all.) You have several options with TweetReach, depending on your budget and time.

Use our free snapshot reports as soon as you launch your campaign, and capture information at the end of every day. Do it ASAP to get the best info – tweets are only available for a few days. No account is required, but you can create one to save your reports- extra backups never hurt! Are you getting more participation than anticipated? Purchase a full report and capture up to 1500 tweets about your campaign. Just 20 bucks.

I want to set up everything once, not have to worry about capturing data every day.

Set up an ongoing, real-time TweetReach Pro Tracker and it will capture all your results from the beginning of your campaign to the end. And no 1500-tweet limit, so it’s great for larger conversations. Each Tracker monitors up to fifteen search queries, so you can track all iterations of your campaign hashtags (hey, people make spelling mistakes!) and keywords. You can later edit your Trackers once they’ve started, if you see participants start using their own hashtags or other keywords you also want to track.

What if I want to go back at the end and capture data for something I missed initially?

Say you notice halfway through your campaign that participants have created their own extra hashtag or started using keywords you didn’t anticipate, and you want to capture that data. Or maybe you didn’t remember to set up tracking in advance, or you just got an analytics budget. We can access any older tweets with our premium historical analytics. No matter how far back or how many tweets, we can get to anything from Twitter’s full archive, all the way back to March 2006.

Have you used TweetReach to track a campaign? How’d it go? Tell us about it in the comments!

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for This Week in Social Analytics and our favorite posts of the past week in the world of measurement, analytics, and social media. See a great piece we missed? Link to it in the comments!

Twitter does drive sales says Deloitte study [from MediaWeek; written by Gordon MacMillan]

“Overall, the study found that a 30% increase in positive tweets is four times more effective in driving sales than a 30% increase in traditional above-the-line advertising, and the effect is most pronounced when it comes to sports games.”

Four Studies on the Adoption of Social Media by Financial Advisors and Investors [from Social Media Today; written by Augie Ray]

“The time has come to look at the data and discard groundless and dangerous beliefs about social media. Here are four recent studies that demonstrate social media has a key place in FinServ strategies”

A Comedy Show That Comes via a Hashtag [from The New York Times; written by Amy Chozick]

“The festival will take place almost entirely on Twitter, with comedians posting video snippets of routines and round tables and posting jokes using the hashtag #ComedyFest.”

Twitter Partnership With Fuse Flips Social TV Scenario, Placing Twitter In The Driver’s Seat [from All Twitter; written by Mary C. Long]

“Citing Twitter’s amazing connection with millennials and its standing of the place ‘where there world unfolds,’ Twitter plans to ‘reinvent television’ by partnering with #Trending10, the first tv program sourced from real-time Twitter conversations.”

How Your Branded Content Can Thrive on Tumblr [from Business2Community; written by Stephen Jeske]

Comscore confirms that Tumblr is the No. 2 social platform — right behind Facebook — in terms of visitor engagement. Moreover, Tumblr is highly popular among internet users and is ranked by Quantcast as one of the top 15 sites in the United States, making it an excellent platform for branded content efforts.”

How Tumblr Forces Advertisers to Get Creative [from MIT Technology; written by David Zax]

“Editorial has won in a sense: the idea that advertising, like editorial content, must be interesting, has won. You can’t just advertise next to someone else’s Tumblr. You’ve got to create a Tumblr of your own.”

Civic Engagement and Social Networks [from Pew Research]

“Our latest Internet report finds that the well-educated and the well-off are more likely than others to participate in civic life online – just as they have always been more likely to be active in politics and community affairs offline.”

You can also find Political Engagement on Social Networking Sites in the same report:

And one more from Pew:

TV Was the Top Source of Information on Boston Attacks

“Television was far-and-away the most widely-used source of information about the bombing and its aftermath; 80% of Americans followed the story on TV. About half (49%) say they kept up with news and information online or on a mobile device, and 38% followed the story on the radio. Only 29% say they kept up with the story in newspapers, about the same number (26%) tracked the story on social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter.”

Old and new “print” media were followed at about the same rate.

How to vet information on Twitter

without comments

When news breaks, it now often breaks on Twitter. In the throes of a national or international emergency or other breaking news, a lot of information comes pouring in quickly. Unfortunately, there is always bad information mixed in with the good. Here are some tips for making sure information is solid before you act on it, or choose to share it with others:

  • First: check the source. Is it a reputable news publication (The New York Times), or is it a publication known for publishing joke content (The Onion), or pushing out anything they think will get the most views (The National Enquirer)? If you don’t know, don’t act on it or retweet it. 
  • Take everything with a grain of salt. Even the biggest publications feel pressure to keep everyone updated, especially via social media, so they may share information that isn’t confirmed with authorities yet, or has been misinterpreted.
  • On that note, look for retractions or updates on claims, and remember that “allegedly”, “reportedly” or “hearing reports” doesn’t mean something has been confirmed. “Sources say” isn’t solid if you don’t know who the sources are.
  • Search hashtags to find repeated links and information; this can often show you the origination of a claim so you can see if it’s reliable. When breaking news is happening, hashtags will likely flood your feed and start trending. If they don’t, see which hashtags trusted publications are using, then search those.
  • News outlets will likely tell you which reporters they have in the area, or will confirm information from people who are tweeting on the ground.
  • Check Snopes. They quickly list and categorize anything that might be an unfounded conspiracy theory, or that needs confirmation. Sometimes old fake photographs resurface too, as these did during Hurricane Sandy in the fall of 2012.
  • Finally, be cautious of scams. While the best parts of humanity will reach out to help during a natural disaster or other tragedy, others will try to profit by creating false charities or funds. Verify before you donate with sources like Charity Navigator.

If you do share something that turns out to be false or unverified, say so and commit to sharing only the best information moving forward. Consider just listening until the situation becomes clearer, then use Twitter and other social media to see how you can help, no matter where you are.

Miss a conference? 5 tips for getting the most out of the hashtag on Twitter

with one comment

We’ve covered how to get the most out of a conference using hashtags as both an attendee and as the host before, but what if you planned to go to a conference and missed it, or can’t afford the trip?

  1. Go to the conference website and check someone’s feed that you know attended to see what hashtags were used; this will cover all the bases if either source missed one
  2. Search those hashtags to see what the main conference chatter was about:
    • Making connections: maybe someone you have a good relationship with connected with someone else you’d like an intro to
    • Notes from presentations/keynotes: find links to SlideShares and recordings
    • Photos: get a feel for what events were like
    • Observations about the location: if you’re planning to attend in the future, you can remember the restaurants, bars and other sites attendees recommended
    • If you’re familiar with the area and you know in advance you’re going to miss the conference, consider tweeting out some suggestions for places to go eat and socialize on the hashtag(s)
  3. See if someone made a Storify of the conference, or consider making one yourself and tweet out the link with the conference hashtag(s)
  4. Run a free TweetReach snapshot report for the main hashtag to see top contributors (you might want to follow them) and what the most retweeted tweets were. Be sure to do this as soon as the conference ends so you can get the best information. (And if you want more, you can buy a full report for $20, no account necessary.)
  5. Ask if anyone has a link to a blog post about the conference from past years; that way you can really get a complete picture of how it changes year over year

This Week in Social Analytics #46

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for This Week in Social Analytics and our favorite posts of the past week in the world of measurement, analytics, and social media. See a great piece we missed? Link to it in the comments!

News on Social Media is Ready for Prime-time [INFOGRAPHIC] [from Social Media Today; written by Tatiana Aders]

“Adaptation to the social media news channel by a mainstream and pragmatic audience indicates that this technology has already ‘crossed the chasm’ in the innovation adoption lifecycle. Simply put, the social media news channel is poised for majority adoption.”

Twitter Now Rivals Facebook as Teens’ Most Important Social Network [from Marketing Charts; written by Marketing Charts staff]

“The trends favor Twitter, though: compared to the last survey, conducted in the Fall of 2012, the proportion of teens naming Facebook as their most important has dropped 9% points, while those naming Twitter have grown by 3% points.”

Britons spend 62m hours a day on social media – that’s an average one hour for EVERY adult and child [from The Independent; written by Pat Hurst]

“Of the UK’s estimated 26 million Twitter users, almost a third (31%) spend more than an hour a day on the network, while 14% – more than 3.6 million people – say their daily usage exceeds two hours.”

New London-based soap opera replaces TV episodes with Twitter [from The Telegraph; written by Alice Vincent]

“Seven Sisters, which launches later this month, removes the show aspect from the traditional soap opera format, and instead narrates the love triangles and family spats in its characters’ lives through social media. Its audience will follow the various plot strands through Instagram, Facebook and Twitter updates, with extra information available on an app and in blog posts.”

A new form of entertainment. Will you ‘tune in’?

Twitter Use Drives Up, LinkedIn Stalls in the UK [from eMarketer; written by eMarketer staff]

“Twitter saw the biggest bump in penetration since February 2011, more than doubling from 13% to 28%. And while nearly half of those ages 18 to 24 used Twitter—the highest penetration level of all the age groups—the 35-to-44 age group had the second-highest penetration rate, at one-third of internet users.”

Only a Third of the World’s Population is Online [from Statista; written by Felix Richter]

“‘For every person online, there are two who are not. By the end of the decade, everyone on Earth will be connected. #NewDigitalAge’

The above statement was tweeted by Google chairman Eric Schmidt on Saturday, April 13. Given Schmidt’s prominence and the boldness of his claim, it naturally sparked a lively discussion as to whether it would be possible (and desirable) for the entire world population to be online by 2020.”

Using Twitter as a nonprofit

without comments

We talked to Beverly Robertson of the March of Dimes about using social media as a nonprofit in one of our TakeFives earlier this year, and here’s what she had to say:

TweetReach: Do you feel the approach or reliance on social platforms is different for a nonprofit organization? What would you recommend to one that is just starting on their social strategy, or is uncertain of how to even begin?

Beverly Robertson: Social Media is critical not only for delivering mission messaging, but in introducing the organization to a new audience, as well as keeping track of what people are saying about you and your mission. It also is critical to take the opportunity to thank your donors and volunteers publicly for all of their hard work and support. I cannot tell you what a tremendous response we get for doing that.  My recommendation is jump in, but listen before you speak.”

If you’re a nonprofit who would like to get more out of social media, here are some tips to get started on Twitter:

    1. Listen before you speak: see what other non-profits have to say in their Twitter profiles and down their timelines before you jump into tweeting.

    2. Listening to other accounts can give you a good idea of etiquette and basic interactions, but be sure to use your organization’s voice and be human

    3. Find supporters and follow them. Interact where it’s appropriate: proactively answer questions and provide links to more information

    4. If someone is spreading misinformation about your organization on Twitter, you have options:

      a. Address them and gently correct the information, sharing a link for them/those following the conversation to read more

      b. Send out a tweet from your own account that does not directly address the account spreading the misinformation, but corrects it                                       Either way, try to avoid getting into a verbal battle with someone on Twitter. Neither party ever looks good.

    5. Take major issues offline: if someone comes to you on Twitter with a big problem, make sure you’re mutually following one another and then DM an email address where a deeper discussion can take place

    6. Check for hashtags related to your cause and monitor them; this is one way to track what’s being said about your organization

    7. If there aren’t any obvious ones, create a hashtag and start using it. Encourage your supporters to pick it up as well.

    8. Regularly monitor search results for the name of your organization, both the version you have for Twitter (such as @marchofdimes) and any iterations of the name without the handle: March of Dimes, MoD, etc. (Use Twitter’s search, create columns in TweetDeck and even run a free snapshot report with us.)

    9. Consider hosting a tweet chat. Those interested in supporting your cause could find you through another’s timeline or the chat hashtag, and will have a chance to interact with and follow you, as well as ask questions.

    10. Finally, be sure you have easy-to-find, working social buttons on your website! Supporters won’t know where to find you if you don’t tell them.

This Week in Social Analytics #45

without comments

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for This Week in Social Analytics and our favorite posts of the past week in the world of measurement, analytics, and social media. See a great piece we missed? Link to it in the comments!

Social Behavior: The BIG GAME — A Study with SurveyMonkey [from iAcquire; written by Norris A. A. Rowley Jr.]

From 2011-2012 time spent on social media has increased by roughly 30 billion minutes (or 37%). You may have thought Facebook increased the most, however there was a 4% dip in user visiting the site. However, Pinterest’s visits increased by 1000% (that is a whole lot of pins). This is a useful insight because it shows the social media market is not solely Facebook, a social media strategy needs to be holistic and flexible.”

The Lean Analytics Cycle: Metrics > Hypothesis > Experiment > Act [from Occam's Razor; written by Avinash Kaushik]

“We are far too enamored with data collection and reporting the standard metrics we love because others love them because someone else said they were nice so many years ago.”

Definitely falls under long reads, but it’s a good, detailed approach to setting up analytics beyond the easiest (and often most meaningless) metrics.

Twitter’s Big Challenge: Too Much Twitter [from Wired; written by Mat Honan]

“Discover needs to get far better at surfacing the most interesting things from your own timeline that happened since you last looked at Twitter. Imagine if instead of showing interesting things from all around Twitter, Discover focused on your own timeline and showed you the most interesting and important things since you last checked Twitter. It could display the tweets by people you follow that were the most retweeted and the most favorited. It could show the links that came up the most often over the past hour (or two hours, or four hours or whatever) on your timeline, or that had people talking. If two or three of the people you follow message each other back and forth for multiple tweets, it should put that conversation in front of you, starting with the first tweet (especially if more people join in).”

Social Media and Multitasking Go Hand in Hand [from eMarketer; written by eMarketer staff]

“Social network multitaskers on both Facebook and Twitter were most likely to log on to accounts when they were planted in front of the TV; more than eight in 10 Facebook users and about two-thirds of Twitter users used social networks while channel surfing. But the two networks were also extremely popular while traveling and among those who were supposed to be working.”

For pols, Tumblr is trending [from Politico; written by Kevin Cirilli]

“This is Tumblr’s moment,” Gregory Galant, CEO of Sawhorse Media, told POLITICO. “It’s almost equivalent to when Truman realized that he could address the nation directly on television to make a presidential address – here’s a new form of media to reach an audience.”

Case Study: How Content Diffuses Through Different Social Networks [from Social Media Today; written by Dr. Scott Hendrickson]

“Tumblr’s reaction was unique, with slow momentum building during the first few hours after the shareholder call, but quickly speeding up when as people created ‘re-bloggable’ content about the news. Rather than an event-response reaction such as Twitter, or a considered reaction, as with blogs, the reaction of the audience on Tumblr accelerates as the type of content Tumblrs reblog appears in the network.”

9 tips for watching TV on Twitter

with 2 comments

Live-blogging has spawned a new generation of itself, and the cool kids these days are live-Tweeting and Tumbling while they watch their favorite shows. Sound like something you’d like to get in on? We’ve got some suggestions to help get you started using Twitter while you watch TV.

After all, 4 in 5 Americans multitask while they’re watching TV now, did you know?

If you want to be one of them, here are some tips for getting social while watching your favorite shows:

  1. Check for an official show or episode hashtag. Using this, you can join in the voices of the multitude – or minority – watching. It’s easy to connect with like-minded people this way. You can find these hashtags by searching for an official show handle by typing the show name into Twitter search, and then go to that account to see what hashtag(s) they use. If there’s no official account, or they’re not using hashtags, click through other search results to see what other people are using.
  2. If a hashtag doesn’t already exist, make up your own. People who follow you who watch the show might join in, and it can spread from there. Or someone who follows you who doesn’t even watch the show might start, because they know someone else who watches it.
  3. You might want to announce ahead of time if you’re going to be live-tweeting a show, and that you’ll be using a hashtag, just in case anyone wants to mute it if they’re not interested.
  4. Do not tweet spoilers. Ever. Remember that not everyone is watching live, and you don’t want to be the one who ruins the ending for everyone else.
  5. Interact with other people talking about the show, replying to and retweeting them when appropriate. 
  6. Mention official accounts for the show, the actors or the characters. You never know when you might get a retweet, and those accounts often have a large following. You can find them by searching Twitter for the show name and choosing the official account that pops up with a verified checkmark, or by going to the show’s website – they all have their social profiles prominently displayed.
  7. Follow people you have an interesting interaction with – that’s what being social is all about, after all. You may find some new friends.
  8. For big events where you might have people over to be social IRL too – like a Super Bowl party or Oscar party – post pictures of your setup, and include guest’s handles in your tweets.
  9. Share your content from other networks like Tumblr and Instagram. But be careful of auto-sharing everything you post elsewhere; those who follow you in multiple places might get bothered by the redundancy and decide to unfollow you. It’s great to cross-post some, but be selective.

Do you tweet while you watch TV? Got any tips we missed? Tell us how you do it in the comments below.

TakeFive with TweetReach – Richard Janes

without comments

Richard JanesWelcome back to TakeFive with TweetReach, our ongoing interview series with influential members of the Twitter measurement universe. This week, we’re excited to speak with Richard Janes, Co-Founder and CEO of Fanology Social, a social media studio that utilizes storytelling to engage fans of celebrities and brands, such as Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell.

TweetReach: We’ve got one question we like to start everyone off with, to see all the different pathways people take into social media: How you got started with social media as a whole? Can you describe your first “ah-ha” moment?

Richard Janes: My background is in producing, directing and writing movies and TV. I had the opportunity to write for big studios such as Disney, saw my directorial debut distributed theatrically around the world and won an Emmy by the age of 25. My career was growing quickly– until the dreaded writer’s strike of 2007. Being a new kid on the block, fresh off the boat from England, my trajectory came to a quick stop.

We started holding Sunday brunches for our friends who had been laid off or directly affected by the strike. It was inevitable that our conversations would come back to the internet, the need for new distribution, power distribution amongst the “creatives” and, of course, the power of social media. My brain began to churn on the technology that was being born around us.

That year, looking to stay active, I produced a web series called Dorm Life. Initially, we exclusively distributed through Hulu. Since the show was based on a college dorm floor, it made complete sense to jump on social media. There, we had the freedom to creatively market and distribute the show. The feed and two-way conversation that developed between the show’s characters and fans was incredible– that’s when I had my “ah-ha” moment.

It become overly clear to me that social media just might be the answer to all the discussions our group of friends was having. During a backyard dinner party, Fanology Social was born.  It took a few years to raise our seed money, but in 2010 we opened the doors to Fanology HQ providing social media services to celebrities and brands.

We are completely enjoying the ride: telling stories, creating conversations and engaging audiences. Our clients’ fans now total over 60 million on Facebook and 28 million on Twitter.

TweetReach: You’re active in the entertainment industry. How are others in your industry embracing social media and measurement? How is your approach different from everyone else?

Richard Janes: Our traditional entertainment industry accounts are responsible for 50% of our business, however, I would argue that all our clients are embracing the idea of being entertainment providers to communicate their message through social media. As far as the traditional entertainment industry goes we are still at an embryonic stage of social media use. There appear to be three main buckets that our competitors fall into:

1. The agency that is focused on looking after celebrities and either driving all their social media traffic to a celebrities website where they monazite via low CPM adverts, or

2. The social media factory with hundreds of celebrity clients where they have a set formula that doesn’t deviate with each client, but at least it gets the celebrity building their audience.

3. Traditional ad agencies that approach social media as they do traditional advertising with the focus on the sell rather than the building of meaningful relationships.

What makes us different is that we are 100% focused on social media; we develop client-specific strategy and content (copy, graphics, videos and experiences) for each platform. First and foremost we are entertainment providers who have spent decades building content that evokes an emotional response providing continual value to the end user.

TweetReach: You engage clients like Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars—both she and her show have a huge fan base that’s active on Twitter. How do you measure fan engagement around her and her character? What measurement benchmarks are important to you, and how do you use TweetReach to get them?

Richard Janes: Shay Mitchell is a great example of an actress who really ‘gets’ social media. She understands that she is where she is- and will achieve her lofty goals- ONLY as a result of her fans continued support.

Shay is really a dream client for us.

As part of our strategy, we support her in weekly Twitter parties around the show, which drives huge interaction from her fan base. For the season finale, our hashtag #PLLayWithShay received over 96,000 tweets,  177,000,000 impressions and trended worldwide for nearly two hours.

The average Twitter party runs an hour and after we are able to track the success through TweetReach Analytics. We love the immediacy of TweetReach!

As far as the benchmarks we use to measure success, it really varies from client to client and partner to partner. With our celebrity clients they have so many brand partners (from the TV shows and studios through to magazines, talk shows, and product lines they endorse) we have to have access to a wide variety of trustworthy data so that we can meet any of their insight requests at a give time.

From a brand perspective like Live Nation, it’s all about the click through to buy tickets.  But with Toyota, there isn’t the expectation that a click on a link is going to directly result in the purchase of a new Pruis C. Not yet anyway!

TweetReach: How do you look at and think about the mix of different social media networks when designing your social strategy—are you looking at incorporating more than just Twitter? What kind of different approaches might you take with different platforms, and what lessons do you think you can take with you from Twitter?

Richard Janes: We work across social media from Google+ Hangout’s with Jillian Michaels and Ashley Tisdale to Twitter parties with Shay Mitchell and Jesse McCartney, all the way through to a Redit AMA with Morgan Spurlock.

The key for us is developing a strong narrative on each platform that caters to each platform’s strengths and takes the fan on a journey, rather than through random updates where social media fatigue can set it. As far as immediate interaction, Twitter is the king and multiple updates work great in creating a two-way conversation, be it with a celebrity’s Twitter party, or working as a customer service tool for some of the IOS gaming companies we work with. When it comes to Facebook we have to be a lot more focused on our client’s updates; with Google+ SEO is making a big difference.

TweetReach: Have you looked at social media success or failure in other industries for pointers on how to apply best practices in your work? Any good examples?

Richard Janes: 100%, we are all pioneers and there is no point in having tunnel vision with the way we do business. We are constantly on the lookout for innovative work and you never know where that may come from: a massive agency with a huge budget, or a local musician who has come up with a great way to get all his friends turning up to a gig.

TweetReach: Good examples of social media work?

Richard Janes: Hummm …a good place to start is our website ;-)

TweetReach: Haha fantastic, Richard! Thanks for talking to us. And we’ll keep watching to see where Fanology Social takes its clients next!

British CEO and lifelong entrepreneur, Richard Janes, started Fanology Social after recognizing the power of social media. His award winning career as a writer/director has informed the companies underlying goal of employing storytelling as the main strategy of boosting clients engagement. 
A childhood actor, Janes ended up finding his place behind the camera. At the tender age of 23, he directed his first feature length film that was distributed internationally. Shortly after, Janes’ pilot went on to win an Emmy. He had the pleasure of writing feature screenplays for major studios such as Disney.
Since falling in love with social media, Janes and his team of Fanologists, have been recognized with various awards (DigiDay award, Webby nominated) and work with the top names in the social media circuit (Shay Mitchell, Ashley Tisdale, Toyota).
