I'm quoted in Media Post today on an article about WeFollow.
Bascially, WeFollow is a user-generated Twitter directory. It allows you to select 3 categories by which your profile can be listed. I found it really hard to describe my Twitter profile in just 3 ways. And I'm sure marketers will find it just as difficult.
I suppose, just like search marketing, the key is to choose keywords that have the right balance of popularity, relevance, and opportunity to win. The ones I chose were #marketing (I'm #683), #digital (I'm #15), and #sem (I'm #41).
In the Media Post article, I share 3 prospective ways marketers can leverage this new Twitter directory:
1. Determine who the key influencers are in their categories and conduct outreach to them to engage with or discuss their product/service
2. List yourself in the appropriate category to increase exposure
3. At some point it's likely WeFollow will create advertising opportunities or sponsored listings once it reaches critical mass
