The Details

Useful Tools:

  • SNAP (Social Networks Auto Poster): This plugin has been very helpful for sending out new posts automatically to not only Twitter. We configured the tweet to include a shortened URL from Rebrandly using the domain we purchased from GoDaddy and learned how to use UTM parameters to track website visits from these tweets.
  • Disclaimer* Lest you think the Twitter account is mainly automated, each morning and evening we are active on twitter itself and have been able to connect with some wonderful people this way.

Plans moving forward:

  • I’ve resigned that the profile visits are simply going to have more hits than the people coming from Twitter to the website. I’ll probably stop tracking this moving forward.

THE HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Top Tweet earned 1.4k Impressions

Well, that’s it for Twitter so far. What do you think, did we do okay for this month on Twitter? Is that where you found us? Let us know in the comments below.

P.S. If you would, share us via the buttons below I’m working on some event tracking metrics 😉 – thanks for the continued support!


Conclusions

April is the time when I began to take my focus off of tpoh.me and work on some of the other projects.  So these results aren’t entirely unexpected, although now that the summer is over the results are picking up again and I’m looking forward to continuing to post better results!
 If you are a fellow blogger and haven’t tried the Google Analytics iPhone and iPad app you may want to consider it, the nerd in me loves the charts.
