OptimalKeyword.comNot everybody has got thousands of dollars to spend on marketing campaigns, and if you’re a small business owner you know how difficult it is to compete against a Mr. Moneybags that buys a solid $15,000 of Facebook ads on a month alone. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you could do. Fighting back is a question of finding the right keywords to use on your campaigns. If you do, then you’ll be connecting with your audience even when you’re on a shoestring budget. And this new platform makes such a thing easier than it ever was.

Presented by (a company that’s served Facebook advertisers for many years), OptimalKeyword can be used to find all the right keywords to go with any campaign of yours.

  • August 10, 2010

TweetReach.comI am unsure how many people are actually aware of the repercussions that something like a blog post or a tweet can have. Not many sit to think about how far these can travel.

And there is a good reason for that: deep inside, we know that a tweet will be read on the other side of the world. We know it, but (unless we have traveled a lot ourselves) we can’t actually grasp the vividness of the experience and its every ramification. So, we know that anything that has to do with social media has a worldwide appeal, even when we are unable to delve into the true representations of the whole process.

This site aims to lets us visualize it all just that little bit better. We can define it as a tool for measuring the reach of any tweet. It does so by analyzing how any specific keyword has spread on Twitter. You can enter a phrase, a hasthag, a URL or a screen name. Multiple data points from Twitter will then be analyzed, and a report will be produced for you to go through and assimilate.

A service like this one is obviously going to be maximized by marketers that want to measure the efficacy of their campaigns. The service comes in five different configurations, actually, and these go from one named “Mini” (limited to 5 reports and one user) to one entitled “Max” (supporting up to 100 reports and as many users as you want).

More – Ensure The Relevancy Of Tweets

  • July 28, 2010

KeyTweet.comThe one disadvantage of Twitter as a tool for communication is that it’s too easy to clutter up your feed with messages from people who have really nothing to do with you. If you can’t picture what it feels like, just imagine what your feed on Facebook would look like if you sent friend requests to 50 random people at once, and they all accepted them.

The next time you logged in you would be greeted with more information than even Peeping Tom would feel comfortable with.

And that is an occurrence that is far too common for power Twitter users. They follow and are followed by thousands because they associate that with being prestigious, and the price that they have to pay is a feed offering up an illogical amount of information.

Key Tweet is a new service that hopes to give them some breathing space. In principle, it will determine what their true interests are by taking a good look at these keywords that denote what they do. Using these keywords, a filter will be created and only relevant tweets will be displayed. It is not perfect solution (because the problem it sets out to tackle is insoluble in itself), but it is a nice try for certain.

Tagxedo.comTagxedo is quite an interesting application. At its most basic level it stands as a tool for generating clouds of keywords, but there are so many options and functionalities that you can rely on that doing it is an entirely different experience.

For starters, you can have a cloud created using just any old thing you have at hand. That is, you can employ not only key concepts that you will input manually but actually upload a whole document or a letter. It is even possible to submit a URL and have the cloud created based solely on it.

Most notably, you can have your pick from a good range of themes and shapes. If you want, you can have a cloud shaped as a star, or one that takes after a heart. You can tweak with aspects like the cloud’s actual sizing, too, and rotate it at will.

The site is currently in beta, and it can be used by just everybody at no cost. Once the current beta period comes to an end, some features will become paid ones.

Capchure.comCapchure is an advertising network that aims to helps advertisers gain qualified leads from publications. The way this is achieved is by including short forms within the articles themselves, and then readers can sign these up on the spot.

This dispenses with having to click through several links in order to get to the actual signup form.

These short forms are accessed by way of highlighted keywords. When these keywords are hovered over then the relevant content is displayed for the user to sign up, and the process in which leads are generated is considerably simplified. People can opt-in to any e-mail campaign with a minimum of fuss. From that point onwards, it will be up to you to keep them engaged. But having something that makes the first step so painless and effortless can but lead to better results and a bigger number of people who will actually make it through to your mailing list.

When all is said and done, anything that makes for monetizing any site so effectively (and simply) is already halfway there. This service does it, and as a result it might become noticed and gain enough traction to go the remaining distance.

  • February 5, 2010

WordItOut.comWord It Out is an alternative to Wordle, the system that is employed in order to create these keyword clouds that you see displayed on blogs and most sites that want to give their visitors an overall smoother experience.

The way it all works is quite simple, as just by entering a small text you can have it transformed into a cloud of tags that you can paste on your blog or site and show visitors what it is your content truly revolves about.

That is not the only use this can be put to, actually. You can also employ this service as a way to extract the key concepts of any portion of text and make clearer notes, not to mention understanding its overall gist much better.

Still, I think that bloggers and webmasters are going to be the ones to make the best of this. There are not that many alternatives to Wordle available, after all. And the few I have seen did not look as professional as this one, so that is another point that it scores in its favor.

  • January 14, 2010

Say2.infoIf you are a frequent Twitter user, the mention function is one you must employ day in and day out. Any Twitterer who is worth his salt does, as it lets him put his tweets in perspective and address the person he intends to address, not the public at large.

What this website does is to let anybody figure out who are the most mentioned twitterers out there, as well as who are the most talkative ones. These are arranged into the two corresponding charts, and these charts take up the biggest portion of the main page. Of course, you can click on their names in order to get to know more about them, and try to tie the loose ends that could explain why they are the most mentioned/talkative individuals to grace the Twitterverse.

What good is a site like this for? Well, many twitterers believe that actual influence is not measurable just by looking at the number of followers they have. Rather, what must be measured is their authority. And data like the one collated here is certainly illustrative about the shadow that one casts on the Twitterverse.
