Want to know why your VA can complete retweet threads faster than you?
As a Virtual Assistant, I aim to make your life easier. However, I know that some businesses are not yet ready to take that step. So, I thought I would share with you some of the tools I use to make things super efficient.
Twitter Retweet Chore Threads. They are great for getting your content out in the Twittersphere but can take a while. That’s why they are ‘Chore’ threads after all! For those of you who don’t know, chore threads is the term coined for threads in a Facebook group where everyone shares their links. It can be pins to be repinned, blog posts to share or comment on or retweets of your tweets. For bloggers, these threads can be a fantastic way of promoting their newest posts across multiple platforms.
As Virtual Assistants, we are often asked to complete chore threads on a clients behalf. Rather than spend hours retweeting, pinning and clicking through links some amazing tools have been developed to get things done efficiently for our clients. Which saves us both time – and you, money! (See my post on the secret repinning tool for another great time saver)
Retweetchores.com to the rescue!
Retweetchores.com is one such tool – and a definite favourite of mine! Here is a video showing you exactly how it works. (Apologies for the pause in the video at the start where my computer struggles to catch up!) It is simply a case of copying and pasting the whole thread.
So, what do you think? Honestly, this will save you so much time! It takes less than a minute to complete a retweet thread, no matter the size! This tool is why VA’s are able to complete threads faster!
You can choose to trickle the retweets at different intervals. Personally, I think that spreading them out helps to not flood your twitter feed and given the ‘life’ of the average tweet is 14 minutes, the ten or fifteen-minute trickle option seems perfect. If you do want a shorter trickle time of two or five minutes, however, there is the option to host your own server for an extra charge. All you have to do is ask in the Facebook Group set up especially for Retweetchores.com members which you get access to once you sign up.
Now, you may think this is a bit dodgy or underhand, but the creators of Retweetchores.com have actually adjusted the trickle times available due to feedback from Twitter and repeatedly assure people that no-one has been locked out due to RC. I have certainly never had an issue in the time I have been using it.
