    Hi Kristi and Jeff,

    I’ve been experimenting more with #4 recently and must say, spot on.

    Take the time to tweet unique text, each time. Change your copy up. Make your social updates intriguing. Something which will elicit an emotional response, instead of rushing through the process of sharing content.

    Not only is this more fun, it brings better results. Bringing value to your audience and leveraging your presence is what it’s all about, right? If you write interesting headlines or share descriptions, folks will check out what you have to say….so more value shared to help  people and your presence expands with increased sharing.

    Thanks for sharing with us :)

    That is true,kristi. As an author and business man, I can relate to how you said, “establish a schedule to meet your audience where they are and provide what they want”. I hope more people discover your blog because you really know what you’re talking about.  Can’t wait to read more from you!

    I love this article… I have a client who isn’t getting the “traction” she wants, but I’m not sure she’s taken steps 1-3 either.  I’m forwarding this article to her!

    Thanks Kristi, great post! Somehow, I had not yet come across crowdbooster, and I must say it looks very impressive. The other tips are also spot on!

    6 fantastic tips for really making an impact in 2012. I’m working on some of this myself and knowing your audience is very important and they way you’ve broken it down for your community here is quite helpful. I agree that flexibility is a must, not just as it relates to the ever-changing technology but to your audience as well. Today they might want deep, technical articles but tomorrow it might be “tips and tricks” or “how-to” articles. If you’re going to be successful using social media, you have to be willing to adapt.

    Thanks for giving us a mention!

    All the best,

    More time spent crafting content will be my goal this year. Thanks Kristi / Jeff for the tips and for including @Crowdbooster:disqus  in your social media toolbox. Another thing I’m focused on this year is engagement, and making it count beyond just customer support. More to come on the front.
