Woo hoo! I just became a Hootsuite Certified Professional! Before I started Hootsuite University, I mistakenly assumed I knew everything necessary about Hootsuite. Hey — I’ve been using it for several years. Regardless of what you think you know about it, I’m willing to bet you will pick up a few new tips like I did if you in Hootsuite University to become a HootSuite Certified Professional (disclosure: I am a Hootsuite affiliate and fan/user). Here are my three favorite tips I picked up . . . .
Tip One: You can create your campaign URLs inside your HootSuite Pro account!
No need to hop out and head to Google to do it — you can set up your campaign URLs directly within your Pro account! I have been creating lists of parameters to keep up with, designed a spreadsheet to build them for me, etc. The tool is right here within the Pro account. That makes it easy and speedy. You still may want to keep a list to ensure you set them up consistently across campaigns, but that is up to you.
Tip Two: Really neat search operator options.
If your business primarily caters to your local community, this is a tip you have to try. You will be able to monitor people within a certain radius of your location. Awesome for local online marketing.
Tip Three: Filter Streams
Remember that stream I built above? Now that it’s a stream, I can filter it to a deeper level. I can filter by Klout score to see my most influential local followers. I can filter by a keyword to find an additional specific word or term. Very cool, time-saving feature!
