Social media sites such as Twitter have now been woven into the fabric of most online marketing plans. It is easy to see why when over 36% of all marketers have found a customer via Twitter in 2013,

However, the main challenge for many businesses is how to best use Twitter to identify, engage and interact with potential customers. The following is a list of  eight essential Twitter tools you can start using today to manage and grow your Twitter presence.

8 Essential Twitter Tools

  1. Advanced Twitter Search

This must-have tool is still highly underutilized by many who actively use Twitter to market their business.

Advanced Twitter search allows you to dig deeper by running searches based on hashtags, specific names or phrases, people, places and more. important names for certain niches by using hashtags.

Twylah is a powerful Twitter tool that creates a custom landing page for your personal brand. Twylah will analyze your tweets and then categorize them based on the topics it deems most influential.

Sulia is a social network that collects data from Twitter users and categorizes that data based on topic. Sulia then filters the data into channels which enables you to search based on niche or topic.

  5. Social Bro

Social Bro has been one of my go-to Twitter tools for quite some time now. It has many specialized features including profile management, a full analytics suite, the ability to identify influencers based on topic or keyword, and keeps data of followers.

Social Bro does have a free version, however, it will limit the number of followers analyzed and additional tools available. The good news is that upgrading is very pocket friendly!

  1. Nice collection of tools — SocialBro and Topsy are definitely part of my regular toolbox.

    Interesting… I just don't "get" Twylah, even though I have installed in on my site.

    • Honestly, Twylah took me a while to wrap my head around too. The beauty for me is that it creates a landing page and curated site for all of my tweets allowing them to live a little bit longer.

  3. Hi Rebekah.

    Thanks for sharing this! Wow! Didn't know many of them. Currently, I am only using Follower Wonk.

    Appreciate the time you share this info and keep it up!

  4. Thanks for sharing these awesome tools, I hadn't even heard of a few of these before. Twylah is such a fantastic idea!
    Up until now I'd just been using a mix of TweetDeck (I find their columns feature invaluable for following tweetchats) and Follower wonk, so it'll be great to get to grips with these other tools and add them to my arsenal.

    • I have heard that about TweetDeck from many other people Harry. I use Sprout Social and can't say enough about it. I couldn't live without the Smart Inbox. It's a combo of all accounts I manage plus the keywords I want to keep tabs on all in one place. Makes it so much easier to manage!

  5. Nice job Rebekah, there is so much more than just posting if you are approaching twitter from a business perspective. I use some of these and really like Follower wonk, it is my go to Twitter maintenance tool.

  6. I'm a big fan of Social Bro, but have never heard of Sulia. I'll have to check that out. I'm surprised how much Advanced Twitter search is overlooked, such a powerful tool. Great job, Rebekah!

  7. Hi Rebekah, really enjoyed your post. I have been using SocialBro for more than a year and it is one of my go-to resources. My company has created a tool that automatically finds the best tweets daily from the people you select, so you can spend less time sorting through tweets each day. It's a free service called Brook (www.brookdaily.com). I thought it would be worth a mention here since we are talking about valuable Twitter tools!

  8. Hi Mark! Your tool sounds very intriguing. Any tool that might save me time is one I will look into. Thanks!

  9. Some great Twitter tools you have there, Rebekah! Have used a few but will be testing the rest.
