Search Facebook Posts

Graph search on Facebook allows you to search for a lot of things.

You can search for people, places, pages, groups, and even by email address. And you can search for apps. Like the 70 million people who like Candy Crush.

But one of the most important searches is not available to most Facebook users. And that is to search Facebook Posts.

So if you want to see who is talking about any keyword, you are out of luck. It looks like this feature was implemented at one time. But when you go to search Facebook posts you will be a message that “this search isn’t available yet”.

So why the limit? The best reason I can come up with is that you can’t search Facebook posts is that people were using it inappropriately.

Think of how it works on Twitter. On that service you can search profiles and messages for almost any keyword or phrase. And then you can even insert yourself into someone else’s conversation.

There are a few very complicated ways to get around this last of search Facebook posts, but it is more trouble than it is worth.

So for now, what you say on Facebook can’t be brought to the light of day using search. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t come back. So – as always – be careful of what you say.

If you have a different experience when you search Facebook posts, we want to know.

Twitter Best Practices

Twitter best practices

As you become more experienced at using Twitter for engagement, you will want to know some Twitter best practices.

Here are a few that I use:

  1. Be polite in every conversation
  2. Talk as if you are speaking with someone face-to-face – after all this is social media
  3. Use Direct Messages sparingly – and do not send automated messages as that can be seen as spam
  4. Another Twitter best practice is to add value to the conversation and not just send out one sales message after another
  5. Ask questions and be genuinely interested in the response
  6. As in real life listen to what the other person is saying
  7. Have a well written profile – after all that is where you will be making your one-and-only first impression
  8. Have a profile photo of yourself and not your dog or car or logo since people want to be talking with other people
  9. Use lists to identify those people that you would like to talk with more
  10. Be positive whenever possible – if you are seen as negative then that is probably the type of people you are going to attract

What are your suggested Twitter best practices?  Let me know in the comments below and I will add them to the list.

Twitter profile search is a simple and powerful way to find the people you are looking to connect with on Twitter.

Using the search bar at the top of your Twitter profile page or using search.twitter.com, you can search for keywords that would identify the right person.

After searching, you will see a list on the top left for:

  • Everything
  • People
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • News
  • Timeline

Go to the People tab and now you will see what you are looking for Twitter profile search. Review the list of people and their profiles to find the ones that are most likely to want to engage with you.

I recommend following these people and even re-tweeting and favoriting their messages to get on their radar.

And remember that you can save the search for the future.

Using Twitter profile search you can now start conversations with the right people and laser target your Twitter activities.

Sending Twitter Direct Messages

Automate your social media program: http://bit.ly/1qgMuUl

Twitter messages come in two flavors — public and private. For sending Twitter Direct Messages, that means that you want to be sending a private message. Or in Twitter-speak that is a Direct Message.

Sending Twitter Direct Messages

First remember that any tweet you publish can be seen by the public. At first it might seem unlikely that someone will find your message in the billions sent each day. But by using Twitter search you will be amazed how people are finding your conversations.

So if you want to Twitter send DM, all you do is go to the gear icon near the blue FOLLOWING button and you will see the option for “Send a Direct Message”. Just use that link and in the pop-up dialog box you will be able to send a private message.

But unlike public messages, you can only Twitter send DM to someone who follows you. Just because you follow them, do not expect to be able to send them a direct, private message.

To review the DM’s that someone has sent to you check the envelope icon at the top of your Twitter profile. If there are unread private messages, a number will appear. Clicking on that icon will bring up all of the direct messages that you have sent and received, grouped by Twitter account.

And like the public messages, sending Twitter Direct Messages will only allow 140 characters. But that should not be a problem once you are used to speaking in that format.

How to Manage Twitter Followers

Once you are active on Twitter you are going to want to know how to manage Twitter followers.

How to Manage Twitter Followers

What do I mean about managing followers?

Once you have hundreds, or even thousands of followers on Twitter you need to be able to focus on the ones that are most promising for your business.

One way to do this is to use the built-in feature of Lists. You can add any account to a list. And most importantly they will be notified that you are now watching them more closely. That is a great way to build engagement.

Some people create multiple Twitter accounts for specialized audiences. This can be useful when your messages might not seem right for one large audience. And using a tool such as Hootsuite you can easily manage multiple Twitter profiles.

Another tool I use is a simple Excel spreadsheet where I list the usernames and links to everyone that I want to keep in contact with on Twitter. This is the main way on how to manage Twitter followers.

Using the spreadsheet I can easily link back to the person and continue engagement. If you only talk to people once, it is almost impossible to build up an online relationship. And that relationship is key to building an online business.

Good luck on how to manage Twitter profiles and let us know your success stories below in the comments.

How to get active followers on Twitter

After getting your followers active, check out this way to improve sponsoring: http://bit.ly/1oFlez6

How to get active followers on Twitter. The key word here is active.

Of course you want followers, but more importantly you want to have followers who are engaging.

The easiest way to do this is to seek out other Twitter users who are already active. Use tools like Tweepi.com to identify people who have been actively posting on their own Twitter account.

If someone has not posted in the past week, it is likely that they are not going to be the type of person who will help you on how to get active followers on Twitter. And if they haven’t posted in over a month they have most likely lost interest.

What are the best ways to tell if the user is active?

  1. They have posted recently
  2. They have re-tweeted a message recently
  3. They have responded to another message – which you can find by using the link on their profile page for Tweets and Replies
  4. They have favorited a message – which you can see if you click on the link for Favorites

And the ideal active user is one that has done all of the above.

This is my advice on how to get active followers on Twitter.

How to Make Money off Twitter

How to become 50% more productive in just 24-hours with a simple gadget you already have. Video tells all. http://bit.ly/1kcA0Jq

How to make money off Twitter. Most online marketers who are doing Twitter marketing want to know this secret. I don’t know all the ways on how to make money off Twitter but this is what works for me.

Twitter is a social media platform. So people are on Twitter to find people, build relationships, have a good time, and rarely there to buy anything. So how to make money off Twitter?

Most online marketer, whether they are starting out or are seasoned professionals have a product or service to sell. It can be an affiliate program of a network marketing opportunity. This is like a MLM or multi-level marketing product or service.

But when they go to send out their links to their followers, no one clicks? Why is that?

Because people buy from people they know, like, and trust. And that is the beauty of Twitter. You can use it to find interested people, start a conversation, build trust, and over time they may become your customer.

Think of how you use Twitter. Do you jump on the first sales link? Probably not. But if you already know and trust the person – and it is a product that interests you – there is a good chance you will be receptive to the offer.

Using this process I have learned how to make money off Twitter. And there is no reason you can’t do the same thing.

For more information contact me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TomLeonardFanPage or give me a call at (747) 333-8789. I also have other videos in this series of Twitter marketing.

Should I Buy Twitter Followers?

Should I Buy Twitter Followers?

Our best training tips for $7: http://bit.ly/1lxYb4N

Should I Buy Twitter Followers? If you are already on Twitter, you have already seen the many offers where you can purchase Twitter followers.

Some of the offers sound very legitimate, that the followers will be real people and not just blank accounts. And the cost is very reasonable.

But I strongly recommend that you do not take them up on these offers that sound too good to be true – because they are.

First of all, you want to develop a Twitter following made up of real people. Most of the Twitter accounts that have been purchased by other network marketers turn out to be bogus accounts, usually based in a foreign country. They will not be set up to have a real social conversation.

Secondly, just because you have an account that has a tremendous fan base, people may be able to find out that you only developed it by inflating the number of real fans. Your online credibility is very important for building trust with others. That trust is what you need for any real conversations in the future.

And third, it is easy to build add Twitter followers free. There is no reason to spend your limited marketing budget for something that will not be of any benefit.

Check out my video giving you the proven system I have used to build a real follower base of several thousand real people.

So when anyone asks me Should I Buy Twitter followers I always say no.
