How Travis Hacks Twitter
While Travis has used a variety of growth tactics over the years, one of his preferred methods involves Twitter, BuzzSumo and Nimble:
“One of my favorite tools out there is [content analytics platform] BuzzSumo, you can get a lot of great data from BuzzSumo, including who shares certain articles. I… take a look at those sharers and sort them by who[m] is most relevant. Then I can begin to build custom audiences in Twitter.”
Taking the sharers that Travis uncovers through BuzzSumo, he then creates custom lists in Twitter that he will eventually serve relevant adverts to, as a means to generating leads. Travis also uploads those exact same Twitter users into Nimble in order to learn more about them:
“I can actually add those [Twitter users] in Nimble [to] get information about [them] and figure out who is most relevant to me. With other aspects of the Nimble platform, I can…even find their email addresses.”
Nimble not only helps Travis establish a potential prospect’s relevance to him and his business, but it also assists him in quickly finding contact details and reaching out on a more intimate and alluring level, greatly increasing his chances of building a relationship and making a sale.
“I love to be able to get my contacts over into Nimble because then I can see all of their other social graphs; I can see where they are and what they’re doing on these other platforms, which I find helpful. [Getting additional information] about people who might [potentially] do business with you or you’re going to try to prospect…is a valuable system to put in place.”
