Reach your Twitter Targets

Normally, start my day by reading my mail and re-posting interesting articles on Twitter, Facebook and to my Blogs  TheConnector and Daily Ramblings-

I know that people follow and unfollow all the time on my Twitter accounts but today 15/11/11 I have 6827 followers and I have been added to 258 lists for my @stella_holman account.

Part of my Twitter Strategy is to “Reach your Twitter Targets –

Find & group people using criteria  I specify such as topic, location, interactions and more, to  to find, engage and analyse groups of people on Twitter with the aim to grow my community in a smart and targeted way.

The application I use performs the tasks automatically. will track your progress and  and recommend how you can engage your targets more effectively.

I monitor relevant keywords and create alerts which give me information in the form of articles to repost to my Facebook Pages.

 Get in to the Conversation,which also re-posts out to one of my Twitter Account Timeline.  Articles for Social Media to enable others to learn different techniques I post to Stella Holman – Personal IT Coach.-

Articles that I want to raise awareness and Travel go to Stella Holman, The Connector , these are then posted to my Twitter

Using Foursquare

I am going to share my whereabouts with all the people that want to connect with me on Foursquare.  I have managed to log in with my new IPhone4.   I logged in with my desktop computer as well.


There was 25 notifications which were activities on the site, like acceptance of friends requests and ones that have been sent to me .   I see that I have 60 pending friends requests.





I am open – random and supportive but also selective – looking to engage with people who are similar to me.  Online for Networking – not for people from overseas looking for dating!!!  Engaging with those who might already be connected via Twitter or Facebook and of course Ecademy or LinkedIn.


In fact you can only have 1000 connections so really you have to choose wisely.


So I have logged in to Beatty Road Shops as I’m not far away.

I’m in danger of being the Mayor – good for conversation on the web.   I’m sure that there are loads of other people on a Iphone4 inEastbournethat have never heard of these applications as they are a bit behind the times……

Actually, I have sent a friends invite to this person Matthew F as it could be interesting.  Seems to know what he is doing- has had 434 check-ins, has 17 badges and 22 Mayorships,  he needs a bit of competition don’t you think? 😉




How are you doing on Empire Avenue?

I’m playing Empire Avenue and have two accounts – a personal for me on and also one for the business name  TheConnector account is doing well but keeps fluctuating from day to day and I therefore have to work hard to keep the share price up.

However, I am sure that if you are as good as the Social Media as you say you are then your share price should go up.  So in order to keep it high you also need to be active on all your connecting Social Media sites.  Could be a tall order for the majority of people, however, it really isn’t all that tough for me as my business actually is an Internet based one so  a lot of my actually networking does in fact take place online.  Initial message, then a Skype chat, then a meeting if necessary and possible.

Ok for “The Connector” as that is me and has the most active accounts connected, but “Ivey Business” is the business name that in trade under and these days is not so popular.   Quite a bit of my day networking would be spent on Empire Avenue which I don’t mind as I have met so really wonderful people that I would never have come across and then of course I am looking for Team Leaders so that I can expand my W.V business with the right calibre of people.
