There is little doubt that most believe that one of the most effective forms of marketing today is through Social Media. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn normally provide opportunities that you will not be able to take advantage of any other way. Primarily, that is in getting the word out to people who are reading your messages. Social media is almost entirely ‘instinct’ based, if you post something of quality, chances are that people are going to be curious enough to take a look as soon as they see it. However, one of the downsides of social media marketing is the problem that many people encounter with the amount of time that it takes to post updates, manage followers, retweet messages and send out messages. In these cases, it might be helpful to take a look at some of the automation tools that are available to automate your social media marketing One such tool is TweetAdder.
TweetAdder is maybe one of the most cheap automation tools that is available. They are one of the few paid tools that do not require you to pay a monthly fee. You pay a one time fee (money back guaranteed) and you will be able to set up your Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn account and update them using your existing files. This isn’t to say that TweetAdder isn’t without it’s faults, it definitely has some problems. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of TweetAdder.
The biggest benefit of using TweetAdder is that you only pay a fee one time. It does not have a requirement that includes payment each month to continue using the software. Most other programs charge between $25 and $50 per month (or more) to use the software. The one time fee is $55 for a single user license. This includes lifetime updates for the software.
TweetAdder is also very simple to learn to use. Unlike some other programs that require a lengthy learning curve, TweetAdder is very straightforward, and you can learn how to use it very easily. One of the downsides however is that when updates are made to the program, they can be all encompassing. A recent article “Using Tweetadder” for automation which was published on May 17, 2010 is no longer valid, at least for multiple accounts. The changes that were made in Version 10 of Tweet Adder were sweeping, changing many of the features. The upside is that many of the previous database errors have been corrected in this version.
There are two primary downsides to TweetAdder. The primary one being that your computer must be running in order for it to operate properly. This means that if you are prone to shutting your computer off at night, your version of TweetAdder will close down with it. This isn’t an issue if you intend to only run TweetAdder during working hours.
The other “downside” of TweetAdder is that there is no way for you to view your time-line within the program. For most users that means they must have another program such as TweetDeck, HootSuite or log into their Twitter accounts to re-tweet or to read messages.
For what it will accomplish successfully, TweetAdder is a great program. It is even better if you are only managing one Twitter account. The low cost of TweetAdder makes it ideal for someone who is just getting started with automating their Twitter and other social media accounts.
