Sorry, I missed last week. I was at work until 7pm, but I’m starting this up in the morning to be certain it posts!
If you are new, today is all about the numbers, not about my plans. See the action plans I’m using to earn these numbers in previous posts. Last Week’s 6 week Review! and 8 Steps I’m Taking on Twitter.
I’ve been active on Twitter for 79 days. In the last 28 days I’ve had 281 posts, 458 profile visits, 96 mentions, and 89 new follows.
Conversion based on profile views is 19%. My new followers list seems to have jumped, even as I post less and receive fewer retweets. Does consistency, time on the platform, or something else tie in to this increased growth?
My engagement is 2.5%. I am seeing a steady decrease in interaction on Twitter. I haven’t converted Twitter followers to blog readers, and it has me wondering, what is the end goal on this platform? It’s only been 79 days, and I’m not giving up, but Twitter presence and friends/interactions with other writers/editors/bloggers/agents doesn’t seem to transform to a blog or book following.
I post about 10 times a day. I plan five posts and the others of responses or impromptu promotions. What’s most interesting with this stat is I’m posting less per day and still increasing my views. September I had 371 tweets and 41.1k views, October I had 358 tweets and 70k views.
I got 38 views last week spread across 11 posts. My consistency fell last week, and it‘s affected my posts. Instead of writing anything new, I added a “Featured Post” at the top of the page, and created a list of links to my posts across both blogs organized by topic. If I use these as reminders of all the work I linked to I can build traffic.
The North Alabama Writers’ Group blog has 18 views this past week. Important for fellow writers: November Call for Submissions is out on the NAWG blog and if you ever wonder where I get all those calls for submissions check out my page here Bloggers and Groups I Follow for Submissions.
So talk to me! What are your numbers? What’s your social media strategy? Are you counting anything else in your life and what does success look like?
Still need a number fix? Compare this week to last week Oct 22nd, or go back further to reports on: Oct 9th, Oct 1st Sept 24th, Sept17th, or Sept 10th.
