#TwitterSmarter Podcast: Sharing Smart Tips & Apps with Kristi Hines [Episode 25]

Kristi Hines

Kristi Hines is a freelance writer and is well known in the social media space. She writes for many of my favorite publications like Social Media Examiner, Sprout Social, Hubspot and many more. I love her blog. She has an amazing guide to over 160 Business & Digital Marketing Conferences for 2016.

Kristi is a wealth of information and I am just thrilled to have her on the podcast. In this episode she shares her best Twitter tips like the importance of optimizing your Twitter bio and how Twitter search can help you locate new customers. Kristi also talks about some of her favorite tools like IFTTT and Rival IQ. There is so much helpful information jammed packed into this episode. I know you’re going to learn a lot.

Episode Highlights:

  • Optimize your Twitter bio for SEO just like you optimize your website.
  • You are discoverable through the keywords you place into your Twitter bio. Hear Kristi share her advice on how to utilize this so you get discovered more easily.
  • Check your privacy settings to make sure your location is turned off unless you want it displayed in your tweets. Click here for info about this on the Twitter blog.
  • Twitter Search is a great place to find new customers.
  • Automate using If This Then That (IFTTT). Kristi talks about a recipe she has in place to alert her when someone tweets based on a search. She also has it set up to connect her Feedly to Buffer. The only caveat is you need a Feedly Pro account to do this.
