Today I just wanted to do a quick tutorial about a service you may, or may not have heard about. It is called Tweet Jukebox. It’s pretty handy. I’ve just recently been playing around with it for a little bit to see what it’s about before I shared it.
Basically, what it does is you can go in here to, they’re called, Jukeboxes. You load them up with tweets and it’s basically a scheduler. Then the scheduler runs through, you set up the times when you would want your tweets to go out, and it’s very random. They just send out random ones from your Jukebox. Then when it’s finished completely, it recycles it and goes through them again.
I love, those of you who know me well, know that I love social media recycling content systems. This ones pretty handy because even if you don’t use Twitter that much, you can set this up so that you are getting some presence on Twitter, even if you don’t spend a ton of time there. Its got a couple other handy features that I wanted to show you as well.
Let’s just take a look at the website. First of all, you’ll go to tweet Jukebox.com, and then log in with your; you have to authorize the Twitter app to talk to this website. Then, if you go in here this, free quote Jukebox is already preloaded. There are 200 tweets already here. It just has a bunch of quotes that are in here if you just kind of want to play with it, and see what you want to do with it.
Now, you can go in and add another Jukebox. I went in and added a Jukebox, blog posts. Now, my thought with this one is, let Twitter do some recycle for you of your content. You may have been writing for 2 months, or 6 months, or 5 years. Let those blog posts get some new life without you having to go through manually and re-post them every so often.
What you can do is, you create your Jukebox, then you can add tweets to it. It’ll have a list of all the tweets. You set up your schedule. You can say, you know, one tweet every hour every day; or you can set it up for more or less than that. You can turn it off; you don’t want any on Friday. Maybe you’ll want one every three hours instead of…whatever that you want between those times, you can go through and change it. If I want to change Friday, I click on Friday, I change it to 4 hours and 30 minutes, and then I click on Friday again to keep it set that way. Okay?
Then if you go to options, you can set up your Jukebox name. Phase 2 are for paid subscriptions only and we’re doing the free subscriptions, so we’re gonna keep it at regular. You can turn on or off your Jukebox, as you the quote 1 is turned off. Then you can choose whether or not it includes hashtags in the tweet, or not, and do not repeat it for however many days that you want. It could be ever 7 days, every 30 days, every 60 days, every 3 days. Whatever that you want. Okay?
Then you save your changes and it will be set to completely roll out. It’s really easy to add a tweet. You put in your tweet here, “Make sure to check out the Teaching Blog Traffic School…” Okay? All right.
There we go, you can add a photo if you choose to do so, and you’re going to click submit. There you go. There is a tweet that will go out on its own. Now, let’s look at some of the other options here. You can have scheduled tweets, if you want. However often that you want to do it; so just once and done, or if you have, lets say a giveaway going on, and you want it to go out once every 8 hours, or every 4 hours, well I guess 4 isn’t a choice, but once every 5 hours throughout the next week while your giveaways going on, you could do that. Put in the end date, add your photo, and submit.
Now, this is pretty handy. I really like this. Who is mentioning, or re-tweeting me? You can go down through the list. Now, check this out. This is one of my favorite extra little bonuses from this system. If I click on my profile up here, and I go to thank you tweets, every Friday anyone who mentioned me at all, they will get a thank you from me on Friday. Pretty handy, right? You can thank anyone who’s re-tweeting or mentioning you. It’s already set up so you don’t have to do it manually. They systems gonna go ahead and take care of it.
I’m pretty excited about that. You can also send a daily random promo tweet about Tweet Jukebox, which is pretty handy as well. Okay, now, let’s look. Right here you will see that schedule, the visual schedule of when the tweets will go out. Remember they are completely random that are in the Jukebox. Then you can switch your accounts, if you have more than one account, if you have an upgraded package.
Really, that’s the gist of it. Now you’re saying, “How many tweets can I send out?” Well, if you go to the free version, I do believe this is per month. You can have up to two Jukeboxes. Remember, you can delete the other one that’s just quotes, so if you want to do one blog posts, and maybe another one for products that you send out less often. You’re only gonna get 300 tweets in the month. Which works our to 10 tweets a day, that’s probably plenty of tweets out on your Twitter account per day.
You can do up to 5 of those scheduled tweets per month. If you have a giveaway going on or a special promotion, there’s a big TPT sale, or whatever. You can have 1 Twitter account linked up, remember we said if you wanted to switch account you had to pay for one of their plans. You get up to 50 thank you tweets per month, so when those 50 are gone, then it’ll stop doing the thank you tweets until the next month.
To me, that’s definitely worth it. Now, if you’re a heavy twitter user and you get a ton of traffic from Twitter, and Twitters your main platform, you might want to consider upgrading to one of these other membership plans as well. That’s completely up to you, but for my usage, I love just the free plan. I can go on and really make use of my Twitter account and really get in there and start recycling some of my content that I want to get to be more noticed. Even after its already been posted for 2 or 3 years that’s okay. I love that I can recycle those blog posts.
That is Tweet Jukebox. I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial about it. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, let us know how you like, or don’t like, Tweet Jukebox; or other services that use Twitter scheduling as well. I look forward to hearing from you soon,
