On Tuesday, as well as getting our own Tumblr and writing our Tumblr top tips, we found out from this infographic when is best to post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr and Google+. So further to that, here are our top tips for Twitter:

– Posts with pictures get more engagement. Tweet interesting pictures with a sentence or two to give some context. Landscape pictures work best with Twitter’s timeline

– Don’t just tweet about yourself! Post about other interesting things and your followers will look to you as a source of exciting information

– Engage with other Twitter users.  It makes your twitter feed much more personal if other tweeters know that they’re responding to a human and not a machine

– Use hashtags to engage with your target audience. Not only will people who don’t follow you be able to find your tweets, it will keep them well organised and easily findable as well. But don’t use too many as this can clutter your tweets

– Twitter has it’s own analytics tool that is free to use! Go to analytics.twitter.com to see which of your tweets is performing best and what content your followers engage with

Have your own Twitter tips? Tweet them to @WildKatPR and we’ll include them on our next social media blog.

Today in the WildKat PR office the hot topic of conversation has been 2014’s fastest growing social network – Tumblr.

After reading PR Daily’s ‘7 reasons you should pay attention to Tumblr right now‘ we have created our own page on the site and have come up with our top 5 tips for using Tumblr.

– According to Union Metrics the best time to post on Tumblr is in the evening and at the weekend – specifically between 4pm and 10pm EST (that’s 9pm – 3am GMT). There are less posts in the morning which can also be good if you don’t want competition.

– Always, always, ALWAYS credit the source. Tumblr is an image-heavy site with a lot of original work and so users are very careful to give credit where credit is due.

– When reblogging, Tumblr’s default setting is to reblog long text posts as a shorter link which hides the post and will decrease engagement. You can turn this off by clicking the drop-down at the top right and changing it to the Aa symbol.

– Enable endless scrolling on your profile so that you don’t have to click next every 10 posts.

– Don’t spam your followers with constant posts and reblogs! You can use Tumblr’s scheduling feature in order to space your posts out between set times in order to create a steady flow of posts that your followers will enjoy.

Have any top Tumblr tips to add? Tweet them to @WildKatPR and we’ll include them in our next social media blog!
