Analyze Your Twitter Account To Get More ReTweets Posted on October 16, 2013 - Getting access to good Twitter data about your account can be a hit and miss affair. I have tried out a whole range of services online and to get at any of the good stuff usually requires a paid upgrade. This morning however I stumbled on ReTweetLab by HubSpot which is an entirely free service and allows you to pull back a range of information on your tweets and how the things you did impacted on the number of retweets you received (hence the name).
Marketing Success With Google+ Infographic Posted on October 15, 2013 - I just spotted this great infographic the other day which sums up how to get ahead with Google+. There is also a fairly good and detailed report that you can download here. (this was originally behind a very long whitepaper request form so I have mirrored it locally) I have to say, when Google first released Google+ and artificially forced the numbers by attaching G+ to any Google signup I was very sceptical about the success of the service. Even today the engagement and interactivity of Facebook or the instantaneousness of Twitter cannot be matched by G+ but the service is becoming more invasive in our daily lives with reccomendations appearing in the search results, local results, shopping results, Android store etc. So I am going to be rolling out a full Google+ marketing effort over the coming weeks.
