Welcome to the third part of my blog series all about finding low entry competitions. If you’ve not yet read the first or second parts in the series then go and read up now how to master search engines here, and how to make twitter lists here. We are finally at our long-term aim of learning how to use Tweetdeck to find low entry competitions. As this is such a huge massive topic I’ve broken the sections down to make it easier to learn. You will need the info from the first two parts to get the best out of this tutorial.
HOW TO FIND LOW ENTRY COMPETITIONS PART 3 – Tweetdeck
Tweetdeck is a powerful filtering tool for Twitter. You can quickly and easily use your search engine and twitter list mastery to narrow down tweets quickly and efficiently to find competitions. Tweetdeck cannot be accessed via an app and is far easier to use on a laptop than a tablet (in my experience). I’ve highlighted the key features of Tweetdeck below but scroll down to watch the video for the full walk-through and demonstration.
Lists on Tweetdeck
Add your lists you made from the 2nd part in our series. Then filter them by the word ‘win’. If you don’t get too many results with the word ‘win’ then try filtering by ‘#win’
Searches on Tweetdeck
Set up your favorite searches to find wish list prizes, creative competitions or local competitions. You can then use Tweetdeck to get desktop notifications when a new competition is tweeted that matches your search.
By setting up a search column you can even select a radius for tweets to find local competitions. Please be aware that this is based on where the twitter account is registered so is not always 100% accurate.
How – To
To see how to do all of these and get some other tips then check out the video below. If you still have any questions about how to use Tweetdeck then please do comment below. Tweetdeck is such a big area to cover so I’m considering breaking down each filter option in another set of mini series if there’s demand for it.
