Would you like a quick and easy way of reducing the unwanted ‘noise’ on Twitter?
These 3 quick Twitter List tips will show you exactly how to find, group and engage with separate groups of Twitter users – chosen by you.
For example, I use this strategy to find, group and engage customers, potential customers, influencers, employees, family, networking group members etc.
It makes my Twitter activities so much more efficient and saves me a shed load of time!
This tutorial will teach you 3 important things;
1. How to set up a Twitter List.
2. How to find people to add to lists (using a Google Hack).
3. How to engage with people on the lists.
1. How to set up a Twitter List
1. From your profile click the settings icon
2. How to find people to add to your lists
There are 3 super quick and effective methods to find relevant people to add to your lists.
Method 1: Add people you already know
Yes this is extremely simple but very important. You can use the previous section to add Twitter users you already know about to relevant lists.
Method 2: Use Twitter Search
Twitter search is a great tool you can use to find relevant Twitter users to add to your lists. Before using the tool, you need to think of keywords related to the types of users you would like to add to your lists.
For example, if I was creating a ‘potential customers’ list, I would use keywords related to my potential customers such as, ‘kent business’ (see example below).
1. Click search icon.
2. Enter relative keywords.
Once you have found relevant Twitter users, you can follow steps 9 – 11 in the ‘How to Set up a Twitter List’ section of this blog to add them to your list.
Method 3: Use Google x-ray search
I’ve spoken about this before in this tutorial . It basically involves using a Google search to find Twitter lists other people have already created. You can then go ahead and add their members to your own lists (sneaky!).
Follow these simple steps;
1. Type the following into Google and where it says 'enter keywords' enter keywords to do with your list.
For example, I would enter;
Click on one of the lists.
3. Click on members and you will see lots of relative users you can add to your own list!
3. How to engage with list members
Engaging with list members couldn't be easier. From your profile, click the settings icon, then 'view lists' and then click on a list you would like to engage with.
The 'Tweets' section will only show you Tweets from the chosen list member's Twitter feeds. From here simply scroll down and start engaging with their content. Here are some ideas of how you can engage within the lists;
2. Like Tweets
