Learning how to make twitter lists can be one of the most useful tools for managing your twitter following and being able to focus your engagement and support on specific accounts. While it isn’t the best referral site for a blog, it IS a platform that brands and business (and bloggers) are using to build relationships.
I use twitter consistently to market my blog, not just to readers but to brands and partners. Check out this post on how to use twitter with a sales funnel to build blog revenue.
Learn How to Make a Twitter List
Here are your step by step instructions on how to make a twitter list, both public and secret. Follow the images below!
Login to twitter, and go to your top right profile button. Click and find the LISTS button. Click to go to twitter lists.
From here, click on CREATE NEW LIST (right hand column)
From here you name your list, and add a description.
You also choose the PRIVACY feature. Public lists can be seen by everyone on twitter. These are a great way to build community, and lists “followers” in your community, or collective.
SECRET lists are great for creating relationships via engagement. I have secret lists for my clients and brands in my sales funnel, as well as influencers, and course attendees. It is a helpful way to keep up to date with the industry and market.
Once you have your lists created, add them to your tweetdeck or hoot suite platform so that you can support and engage with them in their specific column without being overwhelmed by the rapid fire twitter feed of all your following.
By understanding how to make twitter lists you can now ensure that the accounts you DON’T want to miss won’t be lost in the chaos of tweets and shares. Regularly manage your twitter lists, and visit other accounts to follow handles on their twitter lists to find new accounts to follow and support.
