We all love Twitter and I still find it such as great way to engage and share content with like-minded people. It’s also fantastic for promotional campaigns as it allows you to outreach to your fan base as well as expanding your brand awareness to new fans. With that said, wouldn’t it be nice to have a few tools and tricks to make your Twitter experience more efficient? Do you feel sometimes that you spend hours on there without making any headway into your social campaigns? Well I thought that it would be a perfect time to revisit a post that I did last year ‘top free twitter tools for 2011’ and discover if there were any new and exciting tools a year on. Here’s what I found out:

Building a Fan Base
A great way to improve an online fan base and increase engagement is to promote a Facebook competition. This can be a fantastic way to kick off a brand new Facebook company page or even to augment your current social activities. Facebook is the perfect platform to reach your customers and build a closer relationship with them. This is yet another evolutional step that marketing has taken, where consumer’s voices are heard and companies aim to react and respond to their needs and wants accordingly.
What is an XML sitemap?
An XML sitemap allows for search engines such as Google to be able to understand what is on your site and crawl it accurately.
The sitemap tells the search engines what URLS there are on a website and allows them to be crawled. This is an important step for your website as sitemaps enable search engines to find all of the pages on your site which might be missed when indexing.
