Tonight I’m reviewing a new WordPress plugin called WP Tweet Machine.
I have had access to this for a while, and have been playing with its settings as well as watching it doing its work (Ill explain this in a moment). However before I get much into my review I think it would help if you had a look at a walk through demo that the vendors created as I feel its very worth watching.
So what exactly is WP Tweet Machine 2.0? Well you can probably guess its a Twitter auto poster by its name. Now before I get into a detailed description of what it does I want to make something clear: While I generally focus on Facebook as far as social media goes Twitter is super popular and has a massive following. Its the 10th most visited website in the world and has around 317 million active monthly users. Sure thats not nearly as many as Facebook but its no small amount either. One thing about Twitter though is that it is a very fast paced environment. Much more than Facebook, and frankly that is one of the reasons I personally never devoted much attension to it. Its so fast paced that it takes up a lot of time to use it effectively and I did not want to devote that time.
The fact that Twitter is fast paced and requires a lot of time investment is the problem that WP Tweet Machine is designed.
It automatically finds relevant content from YouTube, Images and RSS feeds and tweets them for you. It also does automatic retweets / follows for you (which is a great way to build an initial following). This way you can not only build your following automatically but you can also ensure that your feed constantly has good fresh content to engage, retweet, and further build up the number of people following you. In short as its a automatic Tweet machine.
WP Tweet Machine is a WordPress plugin that uses the proper Twitter API, it also works automatically on the schedule you set for it (you can have it post a lot or a little). While this is very cool it also means that you will have to do a bit of work to set this up initially. Your going to need to set the CRON job on cPanel that this plugin requires to do its scheduled auto posting. Your also going to need to create a Twitter App ID and Key (its free to do). If your very new to how things work online or very non technical this can be a bit of a chore. Fortunatlly its ‘end of the world’ hard, and WP Tweet Machine has some very good tutorials built right into the plugins support section.
The tutorials are easy to follow and step by step. While I want to be upfront and let everyone know that there will be a bit of work to get this set up, I also do not believe its going to be so hard that people wont be able to do it. If your a total newbie just take your time and follow the video tutorials. Also I want to mention that I really like that they put the instructions in the plugin. Its a personal pet peeve of mine when software vendors do not build tutorials into their software and I was glad to see that WP Tweet Machine has them readily available for anyone who needs help.
Building up your following in Twitter automatically and having it auto post content for you is very cool. However WP Tweet Machine 2.0 has a new feature that is much cooler. It has the ability for you to capture peoples emails and add them to your list with a single button push. This system works similar to log in with Facebook where people simple click a button in your tweet and then Twitter will send you (or your autoresponder) their account email address.
While this is going to be a great way to build your list I do want to be very clear here. Using this feature is going to require a bit of extra work on your part.
First of all since this uses Twitter Cards, which is essentially their ads system, you are going to have to create a Twitter ads account. You are also going to have to provide a payment method (a credit card) to Twitter. Dont worry though, you wont be charged since your only doing this on your own feed, and Twitter does not charge for these cards on your own feed. You just have to provide a payment method initially just to use the ads / cards functionality.
Finally, though you don’t have to do this I strongly suggest you read Twitters ad TOS. Twitter is super strict and if you don’t want to get shut down you need to be sure you are following their rules.
While this many seem like a lot to do, the benefits make it worth the effort. Being able to automatically add people to your email list from Twitter can be a very power tool. This is especially true since WP Tweet Machine can build your feed, and add content to it, on total autopilot. Basically once you get everything set up, your Twitter account can be come a fully automated source of new, targeted emails for your business.
So what do I think of this over all? Well as I have said, good software is a tool. This is for sure a tool. Its a tool that will require a bit of effort to set up however once you get it set up its totally hands free from that point on. It can not only build your Twitter following, it can automatically post relevant content to keep your following engaged, and it can be used to build your email list. Because of this I’m going to say that the set up effort is probably well worth it and WP Tweet Machine 2.0 is something you might want to consider.
