Grow Your Social Audience With Commun.it (Pt. 2)


Last week, I introduced you to the social media listening and publishing application Commun.it. We learned how to set up campaigns and walked through the Actions dashboard of recommended interactions to handle. It was great.

Today, I want to show you Commun.it’s Lead and Community tabs. The first helps you identify members of your audience that are ripe for outreach, whether for a sale, for a partnership, or as a potential clients. The second, my personal favorite, breaks down your audience into action groups, suggestion who to follow, who to unfollow, and who you need to re-engage with. Most important, it tells you why. With the click of your mouse you can understand your audience members better and know why Commun.it recommends to connect with them for example.

Whala! No more flipping back and forth from your chosen social media listening and publishing to and your Twitter or Facebook account. All the information you need is pulled into Commun.it, from when someone last tweeted to the days and times they liked something you posted.

Grow Your Social Media Audience Using Commun.it (Pt. 1)

Commun.it is a social media listening and publishing platform that I love because it allows users to dive deeper into their relationship with audience members from right inside the application.

Want to know how many times some has liked your Facebook post or retweeted a status update? It’s right there in their profile. Want to analyze why Commun.it recommends that you unfollow someone? Review when they last posted to that account, a month ago? Sorry Charlie, they’re fish bait now.

In this first review of Commun.it, I show you around some of the best functions: From how to set up campaigns to why the app’s pop-up and light-box bios windows of your audience members can help you make better decisions about how to grow your audience and reach potential clients.

Are you a Commun.it user? If so, I want to hear from you. What’s your favorite feature? What can’t you live without?

Buffer: How to Make Scheduling and Sharing on Social Media a Snap (Pt. 1)

Trying to keep up with the social media Jones’ can lead you to throw up your hands in defeat. It’s hard work. Some of you have written to ask how I consistently find quality content and the time to publish on social. Like you, I struggled. Than I found Buffer.

Honestly, I couldn’t do what I do without Buffer. It lets me schedule posts for multiple social media platforms, find and share great curated content my networks are interested in, and measure what’s a hit and what’s not — all inside the application.

If any of this sounds useful, check out my video tutorial on Buffer’s top features. What do you like best about Buffer?

This is the first in a two-part tutorial series on Buffer.
