How to use SocialOomph for Twitter
Using Twitter for marketing is different for every person. Many freelance professionals are promoting their own work and work for their clients. If you are a writer and you are promoting your articles, your own blog and blogs for multiple clients, SocialOomph may be the tool that you need.
SocialOomph allows you to manage multiple Twitter accounts, FaceBook accounts (including pages), Google Buzz, Ping.fm and StatusNet accounts. This makes it far more flexible than other tools that you can use to automate Twitter.
SocialOomph also allows you to set up «qeueu reservoirs» that allow to you feed alternate Twitter feeds into one account on different time schedules.
Setting up your SocialOomph account
To sign up for SocialOomph go to their home page and follow the sign up process. They do offer a thirty day free trial offer. There is typically an offer that can be taken advantage of during the first thirty day period that will allow you to upgrade your account to the professional version for a discounted amount.
Add your Twitter account
Using the menu from the home page, scroll down until you see the option for «Social Accounts». Select this option and you will get a screen that asks you to authorize SocialOomph to activate your Twitter account.
From the same menu you can also select the other accounts that you wish to add to your SocialOomph account and add them at the same time.
Add your RSS feeds
The next thing you will want to do is add your RSS feeds to your SocialOomph account. This is done by going to the menu and selecting «add a new blog feed» from the menu. Remember that only new posts that are added to your blog (or your Helium article RSS) will be «fed» to your SocialOomph account after this is added.
Set up reservior queues (optional)
While setting up one or more reservoirs is optional, if you are feeding a lot of links to SocialOomph it is highly recommended.
Consider this: you are limited to one update every twenty minutes across a twenty-four hour period. This means that you can post seventy-two updates across that time period. If you have more than three hundred links that you are promoting, this can be slow and will have a negative impact on your earnings.
To set up a reservoir simply scroll down to the menu item that says «scheduled updates» and select the «create new queue» from the menu. You are free to name it anything you care to with a ten character limitation.
The final step is to upload your work to SocialOomph. You do not have to shorten your URL’s to use SocialOomph.
Select «scheduled updates» then select «bulk upload updates». Upload the files using the command prompt that appears on the screen. Then select whether you want the stream fed to your social account or if you want to feed it to one of your status queue reservoirs. If you have not shortened your URL’s make sure you select «shorten all URLs in the update text».
Your posts will now automatically feed to your Twitter account (or other social account you have selected).
