1 All My Social Media Tools in One Twitter List (Sorta)

I love lists. You love lists (Um, that’s why you’re here, right?)

Twitter users love lists, but Twitter lists lack something essential. You can build them and make them public, but you can’t let others add to and embed the list in other places. List.ly a tool I use frequently on this blog is trying to help reinvent the Twitter list by allowing people to add to, collaborate on and embed Twitter lists through the List.ly tool.

The list below is a Twitter list of the tools I use to manage and operate the various social media aspects of my business. Over the years I’ve written about most but this is the first time I’ve put them all in one place. You can view this as a Twitter list here.

By using the List.ly tool to manage this list I can give anyone the ability to add to this list, update the list with changes, share this list, embed this list, easily follow individual list members or simply use this list to build their own list.

I think many lists benefit from collaboration and moderation and now you can have both in the form of a Twitter list. Here’s some more coverage on this new feature from Venture Beat

Here’s how you combine the two for this added functionality.

  • Create a Twitter list on Twitter and give it a name
  • Log in to List.ly and create a new list with Twitter at the type and link it to your Twitter list
  • Then start adding Twitter accounts to your list through the List.ly tool
  • Invite others to view and collaborate

So, what social media tools would you add to the list below? Go ahead and add your favorite here and watch the Twitter list grow as well.

2 Weekend Favs March Twenty Three

My weekend blog post routine includes posting links to a handful of tools or great content I ran across during the week.

I don’t go into depth about the finds, but encourage you check them out if they sound interesting. The photo in the post is a favorite for the week from Flickr or one that I took out there on the road.

Good stuff I found this week:

DeeMail Templatizer – This tool takes your website design and creates an HTML email template you can use with most any service.

List.ly – Great tool for curating content as lists. Social and sharing features are baked in.

YouCanBook.Me – Online appointment booking that plays well with GoogleApps. Free version has plenty but full paid version even includes ability to take payments.

5 Help Compile a List of Best Email Services

Effective email marketing is an essential ingredient in any marketing plan. It has, for many businesses, become the most important conversion tactic for selling goods and services.

Email Service Providers (ESPs) offer tools that allow you to some pretty sophisticated campaigns, capture, follow-up and segmentation when fully employed.

I am using a fairly new curation tool called List.ly to compile, with your help, a list of the best email service providers. The current list is comprised of services that I have personally used as one time or another over the years and I would for you to add your favorites, vote the ones listed up or down, comment on and share this.

It would great if you added features and reasons why you like one or another in the comments feature to the right of each entry.
