Twylah on XeeMe XWeek: Social Media Tools

TWYLAH IS MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY TWITTER

Twylah is a true social media tool ripe with SEO and social media awesomeness. And, they just added some truly awesome features that make it even more awesome. Awesomer, if you will.

And the bonus part: Twylah is EASY. Like hands off, do nothing easy.

Maybe your experience with Twylah was like mine. When I first saw Twylah, I was like, “Oh, pretty page for my tweets! Sweet!” I didn’t get it. I didn’t know why I needed it. I just signed up for it and pretty much forgot about it.

But during XWeek, I have been able to see Twylah through the eyes of its founders, Eric Kim and Kelly Kim.  I finally feel like I “get Twylah”.

And, now that I “get” Twylah, especially with the features I’m telling you about in this post, I have realized that I “need” Twylah.

TWYLAH – THE SOCIAL MEDIA TOOL WITH  SEO AND SOCIAL MEDIA BENEFITS

With Twylah capturing my tweets and putting them into the gorgeous format that they do, my Twylah page contains enough keyword  rich content to be absolutely delicious to the search bots. My tweets don’t just disappear into the ether in 8 seconds (like they do on Twitter) – they find a home on my Twylah and stick around for a while! Long enough to shake hands with Google and tell Google how totally awesome I am. :)

BUT, LET’S TAKE THOSE SEO AND SOCIAL MEDIA BENEFITS EVEN FURTHER

So, it is awesome that my tweets are indexed and formatted on a gorgeous page and that they can now flirt and hang out with the google bots.  I am trying to get MY SITE hanging out with the bots. Not Twylahs! (No offense, Kelly and Eric Kim of Twylah.  Sorry. It’s the truth!) How can Twylah help Google notice my website even more?

Well, with two minutes of work in my cpanel and another 2 minutes to send an email, I am able to move my Twylah from it’s home on Twylah to its new home on Social-Drivers! YUP. HERE. On my site! http://tweets.social-drivers.com. Haha, so come play over here Google!

Did you go see my Twylah page on that link?  Isn’t is so great how it has a link right at the top that says, “back to Social Drivers”?? My Twylah page didn’t have that before! But now it does, and it is on my site, which I totally appreciate.

Oh yeah, and for more Google yumminess – my Twylah has google analytics. Sweet, huh??

But we’re not done yet.  (Ginzu knife commercial flashback, anyone?)

EVEN MORE SEO AND SOCIAL MEDIA BENEFITS FROM TWYLAH

Here is a new feature which has me totally stoked. I can now add a widget to my blog which brings some of that Twylah goodness to every post on my site. I am sure you noticed that terrific, keyword dense “trending for @mindykoch) widget on my page. That is from Twylah. Aren’t those keywords great? Yeah, those are all things that I want this blog and my online digital identity (my professional brand) to be known for. SEO. Social Media. Marketing. And Twylah gives me that.

If you have a Twylah, you can get your widget code by logging in and go to resources. SO, GO DO IT!!

And, just so you know, this is “HOT OFF THE PRESSES” newness here. As of the time of this writing, Twylah hadn’t even sent out the email informing its members of this option. So, depending on when you read this, you may be the first to know about this! Fun, huh?

BUT WAIT, I’M NOT DONE YET :)

I know. Your head is spinning and my post is too long. (My posts are always too long! GAH!) But it is true. There is more Twylah goodness to know about.

I am talking about the POWER TWEET. They are like Tweets. With Power. Which, I am sure you can see is much better than tweets without power.

So, this morning I sent out a tweet about “XWeek” – which is an event going on this week where my number one favorite social media tool, XeeMe, introduces us to other awesome social media tools.  Like Twylah. This week it is “All Twylah, All The Time”. So, I sent out a tweet that said

“It isn’t over yet! You have time to join us on #XWeek as we get to know #Twylahhttp://twy.la/IpnGnX (Please RT!)”

I sent that tweet from my Twylah at http://tweets.social-drivers.com and used the “Power Tweet” option at the top. What happened when I sent that power tweet?

I created an entire page of content for my site! Keyword rich and a long lasting!! Just from sending a tweet! Check it out! Take the link above and see where it goes! (While you are there, do take the link to sign up to participate in XWeek. It is free. And brilliant.)

AND NOW THE ICING ON THE TWYLAH SOCIAL MEDIA TOOL CAKE.

Twylah is set it and forget it. Worst case scenario, you just join Twylah and let Twylah take over from there. Simple and great. It works for you in the background even if that is all you do. You never have to touch it again.

But, with 4 minutes of work on your end, Twylah moves all that goodness onto your own site on a subdomain. (Then it can be set it and forget it again.)

And, with another 2 minutes of work, Twylah moves that goodness onto your main domain in a widget. (Once again, after that – set it and forget it automagic goodness.)

Or, to really maximize your Twylah SEO and social media goodness, in the time it takes you to send a Tweet, Twylah builds you a keyword rich content page on your own site.

I hope I have been able to share with you how great I think Twylah is. I am so glad I finally “GET IT”!

A few last minute marching orders, if you will! :)

Social Media Pillars

My very good friend (and I don’t mean that lightly), Michael Q. Todd has challenged me to write a blog post about my social media experience and how I am doing in “The 7 Pillars of Social Media“. If you are a fan of his already, then you are familiar with this concept. If not, here are the 7 Pillars, as I understand them. You can get a much better explanation from Michael at http://www.michaelqtodd.com/7pillars

  • Pillar 1: Be Niched – Get Focused!
  • Pillar 2: Be Savvy – Smart Tools!
  • Pillar 3: Be Likable – Great Content!
  • Pillar 4: Be Social – Consistently Interactive
  • Pillar 5: Be Real – Location, Activities
  • Pillar 6: Be Sharable – Promote Others
  • Pillar 7: BE GREAT – GO BIG!

Now, Michael Q Todd is a social media rockstar.  His Klout is 80 and mine is 62. His Kred is 943 and mine is 749.  So, obviously, Michael knows quite a bit more about social media than I do. If he says these are the 7 Pillars, then I am going to listen to him!

Social Media Experience

Personally, I feel like I am doing pretty well. I am active on multiple social platforms, I have great communities that support my efforts, and I am no slouch when it comes to the mechanics of social media. What really counts to me is that I have GREAT friends that I have met through social media and I feel like I am always meeting new, wonderful people.  That is the part of social media I love.

I am most active on Facebook, Facebook groups, Twitter, and Pinterest. I am also active about commenting on blogs I support.

I am moderately active on G+, Klout, Linkedin, Tumblr, and Empire Avenue. I hit those several times a week but not daily.

Social Media 7 Pillars

As for the 7 pillars, here is my self-assessment about how I am doing.

Social Media Pillar One: Niched

OKAY This blog is all about my social media experiment. I try things in social media, and I write how those efforts affected my blog traffic and my personal brand.  I think that this blog is very niched. My social media presence fits in line with this as well. I do also discuss SEO but that is part of my niche since I work in SEO and Social Media every day.

What I could work on: I probably need to spend time cultivating my personal brand blog and not just this niche one here.  Hmmm, something to think about.

Social Media Pillar 2: Tools

STRONG – This is probably one of the areas I am doing GREAT in. I am VERY savvy about social media tools and social media platforms. I am a real gadget girl and I love to try out the newest social media platforms. I like to be an early adopter whenever possible. In fact, as part of this experiment, I get early beta invites to many different social media tools/platforms. If you would like to be informed about the beta invites when I am, sign up for the Social-Drivers newsletter.

Social Media Pillar 3: Content

For this blog: SO-SO. My content is not consistent enough. I have so many clients that I serve during the week and I am constantly creating content for them. By the time I have created content about “dentist, bankruptcy, real estate, glass repair, personal fitness, carpet cleaning, shutters” – I don’t feel like writing another article for myself!

I could curate more content on my blog but I don’t feel that fits my niche here. I should consider my blog another one of my clients and put it into my daily work rotation!

Social Media Pillar 4: Social

So-So. I can do better. I need to be more interactive for sure. I think I am doing well but I know I can do a lot better. I try to RT people, thank them for sharing my content, and to share other content regularly. I also try to like and comment on FB and blogs as much as I can. I am sure I can do better though.

Social Media Pillar 5: Real

Good-ish! I feel like I am VERY real. However, I don’t use Foursquare, Instagram, and other services enough to let people see into my real life. I also can do more with my facebook profile to be more real.  I think I am VERY REAL in who I present. I can just be more open about it.

Social Media Pillar 6: Sharable

Good! I like to promote other people. I really do. I really do think I share a lot and when I produce content, my content tends to get shared. I think I share others and that others share me quite well. I believe I am shareable.

Social Media Pillar 7: GREATNESS

Work in progress! I am not there yet – but I am working on it!! My mind and heart are definitely open to the thought of greatness!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY SELF-ASSESSMENT??

Those of you who know me and visit my blog – what do you think of my self-assessment? Was I too kind on myself? Did I look at myself through rose-colored glasses? Was I too harsh? What do you think I am doing well in the 7 Pillars?

Which pillar is your weakest?

Social Media Blogger Warnings

This tongue-in-cheek post is about social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warnings and not about digital identity or what I have done so far to grow my blog traffic like you probably expected.

~If English is not your first language, tongue-in-cheek means “not serious” or “in humor”.~

Unnecessary Social Media Blogger “Pain in the Neck” Warnings I Could Have Used…

Fellow social media blogger, you probably already know that blogging is hard to do WELL when we fell “UNWELL”.  Creativity is hard when we are in pain. Not impossible, I know a few bloggers who live in chronic pain.  But for pain wimps like myself, it is certainly the un-preferred way to blog.  Some injuries seem to lead to chronic pain, like back injuries or neck injuries.  Hence, some pain in the neck warnings.

Warning One:  A social media blogger should not ever ride an ATV off of a cliff.  And then crash into a tree.  Onto branches 40 feet off the ground.

That probably should go without saying. However, I ignored this common sense warning and did just this very thing summer of 2010. Yup. Slid in some mud while riding a trail down a mountain. Drove right off the precipice of a cliff and into a tree. Got my ATV stuck on some tree branches. Luckily, I held on or I would have fallen on logs and boulders below. I actually did do this. Crashing the ATV isn’t the tongue-in-cheek part.

This little activity does not do much to enhance your ability as a social media blogger superstar. I mean, sure, it gives you an interesting story to write about from time to time, and might earn you a little social media blogger sympathy, but really, as a social media blogging technique it is highly over-rated. So, no matter what advice you receive in any social media blogger marketing resources, I recommend you ignore any parts that suggest you ride an ATV off of a cliff and crash into a tree. In fact, avoid any crashing altogether. Crashing tends, as a rule, to be bad.

In case you are someone (like myself apparently) who needs to have that social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warning spelled out for you specifically, I thought I would mention it. Hence, this post.

Warning Two: A social media blogger should take care of his or her injuries promptly.

Ever since deciding to use tree branches as an airplane runway to land my ATV on, I have had a neck injury. Minor thing. I mean, really. Does a social media blogger even actually need a neck? Other than fill out a turtleneck, what do they really do? Surprisingly, I learned from my injury that the stumpy-looking thing holding up my head should be well-cared for and is actually quite useful.

Had I taken care of my injury promptly, it probably wouldn’t have been so bad. However, I let the fact that I felt stupid override the fact that I also felt injured. Six months later, my husband got tired of hearing me complain about my neck and urged me to go in to the doctor for more than just pain medication. My doctor referred me to physical therapy.

I now know that physical therapy is much less effective if the injury isn’t fresh. Ah. That would have been good to know. Or that could have been common sense. Which, as we can see from my violation of rule one, I seemed to lack during this whole scenario.

12 weeks later, I finished physical therapy with minor improvements. For instance, I could now shrug my shoulders when indicating ”I don’t know why I thought it was a good idea to land an ATV into a tree” without screaming in pain. People cover their ears less when you tell the story this way, which improves the storytelling considerably.

I was, fortunately, able to still pull off being in too much pain to possibly push a heavy Kirby vacuum around for a few weeks before my husband caught on that I was no longer screaming when I shrugged my shoulders. He decided that I probably could vacuum. Darn physical therapy.

I bring up the need for getting injuries treated promptly because the social media blogger professional (such as most of you reading this) tends to get used to sitting in front of computers and can forget from time to time that there is a wonderful thing called reality that has “doctors” and “physical therapy”. Amazing but true. If injured, we should use these “doctors” so we can get better as quickly as possible and return to being the online social media blogger butterflies and reality recluses that we were born to be.

So don’t forget social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warning two – take care of injuries promptly!

Warning Three: A social media blogger should avoid getting re-injured if possible.

Two weeks ago, my neck was feeling a tad stiff and sore. I took a break from my social media blogger work and decided go to the mall. My husband suggested I use one of the little kiosk “10 minute masseuse” services. If you don’t have these in your shopping area, then you probably don’t live in America where shopping is so exhausting and we are so unfit that we need to sit in a massage chair and get a personal massage to continue a shopping spree. (That is tongue-in-cheek. I have never actually seen someone get a massage from these places. Until the story I am about to tell below, I had never had one of these massages. I have often wondered how these places make any money.)

I informed the masseuse that I had a neck injury and that he needed to be delicate in how he massaged me. He said “Sure, sure” and proceeded to massage my neck as if it was his life’s mission to give my neck muscles the relaxed elasticity of melting hot taffy. I, in my social media blogger naivety, assumed he knew what he was doing.

I know now that his “Sure, sure” meant “Lady Social Media Blogger, I don’t speak English but thank you for your $10 dollars.  And now, prepare to be in excruciating pain for the next few weeks.”  

Kind of reminds me of how one of the software programmers from India that I worked with said “No problem, no problem” which actually meant, “Holy Cow! Big problem, Madame Social Media Blogger, MAYDAY! MAYDAY!”  That is why my review of his work said, “Working with you was No Problem, Prashant!”

Anyway, so my masseuse didn’t speak any English. I am not sure he was even a certified masseuse. Unless certified masseuses usually have a billy club that they beat you on the shoulders with. Since I was face down in the chair, I can’t say for sure that is what he did, but it is certainly what it felt like.

I have been in agony ever since. Stuck in bed agony. Not leaving the house agony. “Why is this pain medication bottle empty now?” agony.

Which is certainly not a productive state for a social media blogger. This is why I share this useful warning with you. If you are a social media blogger: heed this warning and avoid getting re-injured. And while we are on the subject, you might want to avoid 10-minute-kiosk-masseuses who don’t speak your language and who have billy clubs.  Just a tip from one social media blogger to another.

(In case you are wondering, yes, I did call the mall and complain.  Some very responsible sounding 17-year-old told me she would take care of it. I am sure she is taking care of it right now.)

Before I move on, just want to recap social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warning three – “Neck injuries suck.  Neck RE-injuries RE-suck”.

Warning Four: A social media blogger should have posts already written and scheduled to run in case of injury.

Uh. Yeah. I don’t even know what to say to this except to say a social media blogger mea culpa. I should have had that set up. I even have the awesome editorial calendar plugin I love that helps to see all scheduled posts.  (Note to self – use your common sense and your awesome tools.)

Not being prepared in case of emergencies is a total pain in the neck. Different from a literal pain in the neck like crashing an ATV into a tree, but still, figuratively, it is a pain in the neck.  So this totally counts as a social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warning.

It is very important that we have posts in the pipeline ready to go out whether we can blog or not. Again, this is a common sense warning that I should have followed like all the other ones in this post – so mostly I am preaching to myself. I am sure you are too smart to make any of these mistakes.

I hope these unnecessary social media blogger “pain in the neck” warnings will come in handy for you someday. They probably won’t as they are mostly unnecessary. Except the last one. That one is pretty good.

If you want to follow social media blogger “Pain in the Neck” warning four: always have backup posts – I do suggest the social media blogger friend: the editorial calendar plugin. It is free and you can get it from that link, but I would just go to “Add New” Plugins in your dashboard and upload it from there.  It is really handy to see when your pre-scheduled posts are going to be published.

Bonus Social Media Blogger “Pain in the Neck” Warning:

If you haven’t become a part of a social media blogger community, you may find that no one notices that you aren’t posting or that you have a pain in the neck. I am very grateful to all my fellow social media blogger friends who have expressed their well-wishes and who have continued to have my back by marketing on my behalf while I have been laid up. You all rock!! You know who you are!! Also, thank you to Ross Copping who sent me an insanely sweet get-well-soon e-card. I am blessed to have all my social media blogger buddies!

So, if you want to survive as a social media blogger with a pain in the neck – be part of a community.  They will help you hang in there!

Thanks for reading my tongue-in-cheek personal post.  The next posts will be how I am using social media so far and social media blogger experiment update 3.

If you didn’t see it, you can view social media blogger experiment update 2.

XeeMe - A Great Social Presence Tool

For a few days now, I have been using a great social presence tool to organize and connect all of my social media profiles: XeeMe.  Pronounced “See Me”.  I love this tool for several reasons: it organizes all my social profiles, I can easily customize it, it helps me to connect with other social networkers, and it has excellent tracking built in. Oh, and one more reason I love it.  XeeMe is the first social presence tool I have ever used that was interested in MY success.

XeeMe – A Great Social Presence Tool to Organize

As far as I can tell, and Axel will hopefully correct me if I am wrong, but XeeMe can organize an unlimited number of social profiles. Organize. Unlimited.  Awesome.

It is currently configured with nearly 200 social media platforms already. Plus, any additional platforms I need to add, can be added easily with a customizable “other” link.  The platform doesn’t limit me in any way.  I added my NaNoWriMo profile to my XeeMe even though it isn’t currently setup to work with NaNoWriMo.  It took me just a few seconds to do it. Piece of cake.

What is especially handy is that XeeMe doesn’t limit me as to the number of profiles per social media platform I can add! I have multiple blogs. No problem.  I have several Facebook fan pages. Not a big deal because I can add as many Facebook pages or groups as I need to. Whatever social profiles I need to organize, Xeeme can organize them.

In addition, XeeMe takes organizing my social profiles even further than just giving me a place to store my profiles. I can control HOW they are organized.

My social profiles don’t have to be organized alphabetically.  They aren’t stuck in a list in the order in which I entered them.  I have full control over the order they are listed.  I just move my profiles around with a simple drag and drop.  Plus, to help me organize my social profiles even further, I have three tabs I can put my profiles on.  I haven’t used all three yet – but if I wanted to, I could put just my preferred profiles on the “front tab” and the plethora of “barely used but still kind of used” social profiles that we all tend to gather on another tab. Up to me.  I can display my profiles in whatever format works for me.

I also love that if I don’t want to add all my social profiles, but just want to add a few, I can do so without it looking like I have an incomplete profile.  I have had that problem before on other social profile organizers. At the moment, I only have 14 profiles set up and I am quite content with that.  I know I will add more profile later but for now, I am happy with my current setup.

I am happy because I have been able to set up my XeeMe in a way that suits me.  I just love that XeeMe allows me to control how I organize my social presence.

XeeMe – A Great Social Presence Tool I Can Customize

I am a huge fan of how much I can do more than just organize my profile.  I am able to truly customize it.  By customizing, I am not talking about “ooh, I can choose the color of my background” or “ooh, I can use a picture in the background”.  I can do those things for sure, but those aren’t the customization capabilities that impressed me.

I can control the description of each profile. You can see in the picture at the top of this post that I have chosen to put “I Follow Back :D ” in my Twitter description.  (I am curious to see if that gets more clicks than what I did have there which was “@mindykoch”.)  I can put whatever I want there.  The description next to my Twitter button description can be blank, it can say “Twitter” or “@username” or “FOLLOW” or anything else I want it to say.  I could even say “Follow” in French or German or Hungarian if I wanted to.  Or knew how to.  It is just so handy to have full control of the verbage in my XeeMe.

But here is what REALLY knocked my socks off:  XeeMe doesn’t force me to use a specific link format. Some other social presence sites only let me input my username and then the computer code inserts my username into a pre-formatted link. While XeeMe does give me a simple version option where I could do that, I don’t HAVE to use the pre-formatted link.  If I want to, I am able to completely delete the pre-formatted link and put in whatever I choose.

I learned I can put in any url I want when I couldn’t get my Google+ link to work with the Google+ traditional format. I had to use the “gplus.to” link instead and it worked just fine. That was when I realized the possibilities. If I wanted to, I could use a trackable link. I wouldn’t really need to because XeeMe tracks things for me, but the point is – I COULD.  I could use a bit.ly link or a google analytics trackable url and my XeeMe would handle it just fine.  How is THAT for cool?

XeeMe – A Great Social Presence Tool to Connect

Something I really like about XeeMe is that I am able to focus on promoting one link to cover all of my social media connections and my XeeMe visitors can select the networks that are the most interesting to them.  I don’t control where we can connect.  My XeeMe visitors do.

Now, you can’t tell it by the XeeMe profile on this blog (because that is just a mini-XeeMe) but on my real XeeMe, my visitors can see in a glance whether I am very active on their preferred network or whether I am not very active there at all. With each profile, I can let them know – yes – I am here regularly. It really puts the key information in front of the XeeMe visitor. If they see I am active and it is one of their preferred networks, awesome.

Also, through tracking, the creators of XeeMe learned that the average XeeMe owner makes THREE social network connections when a someone views their XeeMe.  What a great tool to connect! It is like the “one tool to rule them all” of social profiles!

XeeMe – A Great Social Presence Tool to Track

XeeMe has some excellent behind the scenes applications and tracking.  So much so, that it is strongly encouraged to have people find my Facebook or Twitter or LinkedIn profiles through the XeeMe interface.  That way I can track the clicks.

Plus there are some great tools in the back of my XeeMe.  I didn’t even realize these tools were there until yesterday but they allow me not only to track my links, they also allow me to track several goals and plans to connect with social media key influencers.  There is so much more to XeeMe than I realized when I signed up.

XeeMe – A Great Social Presence Tool to Reach Goals

My favorite think about XeeMe though, is the passion of its creator, Axel Schultze. Axel is what makes XeeMe special. He doesn’t just view XeeMe as his product – he views the success and happiness of the XeeMe member as his product. He promotes XeeMe member profiles. He has created a facebook group to get to know the members and to ask them what XeeMe can do to help them succeed. He is constantly updating XeeMe with new social media platforms.

He has also built-in some neat applications in the back of XeeMe to help reach goals of connecting with people through Flights and Focus apps.  It is quite cool what is back there.  I honestly don’t know what half of it does but it is pretty darn cool!

Another thing he does is create special social networking events called XBX to help a group of XeeMe members meet their personal 45 day goals. XBX stands for Xee and Be Xeen (See and Be Seen) and the purpose is to have XeeMe members network for other members. What social media platform are you a member of that does that?? That cares about your success? Your business goals? I have never seen it before.

The XeeMe members who aren’t part of the XBX event still follow along in the facebook group and learn how to move from networkers to power networkers so they can reach their business goals as well. Frankly, I think this is the next evolution of a social media platform. This is truly SOCIAL media. The platform doesn’t just help you connect with each other, the platform helps to drive your success. I have never seen that anywhere before and I am so glad that I am a part of the XeeMe family.

If you would like to have a XeeMe profile, you can get one free at: http://xeeme.com?r=Fx41EoGro0GP 
If you would like to connect with my via my XeeMe profile, you can connect with me at http://xeeme.com/mindykoch

Please connect with me on at least 3 social media platforms. I am most active on Twitter, Facebook, my FB Fan Page, and Empire Avenue but am active on many other sites as well. I look forward to being able to Xee you as well and to connecting with you! If you decide to use my XeeMe profile to discover three sites you can connect with me on, please let me know if the comments below! If you choose to get a XeeMe profile, please let me know in the comments as well!!
