Twitter automated direct messages – Good idea or not?

Twitter automated direct messages

 

Direct Messages (aka DMs) on Twitter can be a great way to connect with people. They can also be super annoying and do the exact opposite of what you’re hoping for! I’m especially talking about the automated DMs. If you’ve been on Twitter any length of time, you know the ones I’m talking about. You find somebody interesting, click ‘Follow” and . . . WHAM! You’re hit with an automated message.

Many of them go something like this:

  • Thanks for the follow. I need your help on my Kickstarter / GoFundMe / patreon  Indiegogo  . . . (or some other fundraising website)
  • Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or _____   (fill in the blank)

Tips for your first live stream broadcast

 

I don’t know how many people I’ve talked to, or watched on apps like Periscope and Facebook Live, who have said they were terrified of doing a live broadcast. Once that first broadcast is out of the way though, most people realize it’s not all that scary and decide to keep going. In time, it gets easier and they find live stream video to be a great (and even fun!) way to connect with people for business and personal reasons.

That’s certainly how it was with me. Even though I’ve done plenty of public speaking, and even some TV and radio work, the idea of doing live video made me really nervous.… [Click to Continue Reading]

3 Tips for doing live streaming demos on Periscope

Whether you’re live streaming on Periscope, MeVee, Facebook Live, or another app, live demos are a great way to show your skills or products. However, even though you may know your content backward and forward, if you don’t do a good job of presenting it, you’re probably not going to win anybody over. If, on the other hand, you put a little planning into it, you’ll look polished and professional. People will notice your content rather than a lackluster presentation, and they may begin to view you as the expert on your chosen topic. So, rather than flying by the seat of your pants and hoping you can pull it off, make sure your camera situation is settled before you hit the broadcast button.… [Click to Continue Reading]
