I’ve been doing some experiments with twitter as a marketing tool for the 5 Buck Forum. Part of that experimentation meant searching for appropriate hashtags. So far I’ve found 23, 24 if you count #writingsquared which Lori Widmer and I created for About Writing Squared which is the container for the forum and other things like webinars, ebooks, etc.
I culled these from Daily Writing Tips. They actually show 40 on that page, but that seemed too many so I picked through them to find the ones that seemed most applicable for what I want to do with them.
Which brings me to just that. How best to use these tags – and the truth is I don’t really know. Oh, I know how to tweet, and I do, but when it comes to actually putting together a twitter marketing campaign I’m way way behind the curve.
It’s huge because it covers the whole social marketing scene and is, in fact, a compilation of about nine books.
There are some 770 pages and it weighs more than a 5 pound bag of sugar I’m sure. And I’ve just gotten started. Although I wish the publisher, Wiley, had made the screenshots more readable – there’s really no excuse – I’m finding it valuable even though I’m less than 10 percent through.
I’ll do a real review later. Meanwhile, here are my hashtag picks at the moment (each is, of course, preceded by # but somehow that inserts a link to hootsweet, so I deleted them):
wip Work In Progress
WW – Writing or Writers Wednesday
pubtip – PUBlication TIPs
What are your favorite hashtags and how do you use them?
