In this video interview analytics expert Avinash Kaushik discusses various uses that small businesses have found for Twitter — without wasting time. He recommends that businesses follow and deliver only interesting, useful, and relevant information. He gives an example of the Kogi Korean BBQ taco truck in Los Angeles (@kogibbq) that tweets to followers every time it moves to a new location on its route. Another company tweets to prepare followers for planned software downtime.

Avinash recommends three Twitter analytics tools: (1) Retweetist.com, that measures the popularity of your tweets, (2) Tweet-Rank.de that measures engagement, and (3) TR.IM that measures how many users follow a shortened link from your tweet.

Avinash suggests keeping track of two KPIs: (1) the number of people who follow posted links and (2) the kind of content that is most popular with your followers.

Avinash Kaushik is a co-founder of MarketMotive.com and publishes a popular analytics blog, Occam’s Razor. This video was taped at the eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit in San Jose, CA, in May 2009.

    To be fair, there is nothing innovative here. Very introductory, and
    contains information found in innumerable other Twitter videos.
