Twitter lists are a great way to improve your reach

Want to get your brand or message out there? Start listing. I would even go as far as saying lists
are equally important as followers. The more lists you are on the greater your audience and wider your reach.

If you are a new brand with few followers lists are a great way to start building followers. Seek people out on lists who match your goals or interests. Follow there lists and add them to a list.

There’s an easy way to manage lists. http://formulists.com/ is a tool you can use to do this.

Its the perfect way to keep track of who’s talking about you. Who you talk to, and people who re-tweet you. If you are managing a brand with a low follower account this is a good way of seeing who’s talking about your brand, and finding new people to follow.

Want to look for new customers for your new brand? Seek out lists that match your brands goals and start following them. Keep your list open in your social media monitor like hootsuite or tweetdeck.

Don’t over look lists as a way of getting your brand name out. Its also a key element in increasing your klout & reach. Check out @mashables guide to lists.

Maximizing Lists with Hootsuite

Maximizing Lists using Hootsuite

A list can be a powerful tool in twitter. Lists allow you to monitor a wide range of people and business on twitter without following them. Setting up a list using hootsuite is relatively simple. There are a few tweaks you can use to filter content once the list is set up.

Click on the Hootsuite owl and go to Twitter tab.

I’m going to create a list to monitor local tweets on foursquare. Once you’ve named the list and created it hootsuite automatically adds a tab to the hootsuite web browser app.

Now I have to fill this list. Take a look at my previous post on using four square to find local tweeters. This is one method you can use to build a local list.

For the purpose of this tutorial I am going to use an existing list and show you how to filter it. To filter a list by keyword click on the down arrow as seen above the pop-out box in this image. Select Filter by and you can enter any keyword you want. I’ve chosen SEO, to search for posts on SEOby people I follow. Why would I want to do this? Re-tweeting the tweets of people you follow is a great way to build relationships. Since my blog is focused on SEO, this is a good example to use.
