My top 3 tweets #9

Welcome to my top three tweets for the week of July 13, 2015. Each week I pick my top 3 tweets and package them into a blog post. Those that know me would agree that I love to try stuff out and experiment. This is an experiment that I’m doing to generate more content for my blog and more engagement on Twitter. I’ll have a brief blurb about the tweet and encourage you to contribute to the Twitter conversation. Let’s learn together and please borrow this idea for your blogs and businesses. All I ask is you consider hiring my agency one day! – Chris.

No 1: Thought Leadership Interview

Why top 3?: I chose this tweet for two reasons: 1) According to Buffer it was the “most popular” tweet based on reach, faves and clicks; 2) It ties thought leadership content with use of social media. In this case, my agency runs a thought leadership program for Virtual Logistics, and this interview is a part of a series being published on data integration and how it ties to logistics, supply chain, ecommerce and venture capital investment.

No 2: Infographic

Why top 3?: When I look back each week to find my top 3 I pick from a group of 10 or more of the most popular tweets. In this case this was one of the most retweeted and the people who shared it are important to me and the growth of Mi6. It gets top 3 because of who shared it and the content type. Visuals, like infographics, tend to get shared more often than text only tweets.

No 3: Twitter Let Me Down

Why top 3?: Well, a bit of an exaggeration! But, here’s a tweet that I hoped would generate a response from the manufacturer of a product that sucks: “The Amazing Wubble Ball”. They didn’t respond but neither did Amazon. The product is still being sold on Amazon today and at the time of this post there are no positive reviews. There were 255 “impressions” according to Twitter stats with no real engagement. So, I’ve decided to spend $15 and buy some additional exposure via promoted Tweets. Let’s see what happens!
