These are the Top 25 Most Engaged Brands on Twitter
Posted on April 25th 2013
Community engagement SaaS provider Nestivity today announced the 25 most engaged brands on Twitter. The engagement analysis of the 100 most followed brands on Twitter, conducted Dr. Natalie Petouhoff in partnership with Evolve! Capital, indicates that neither having more Twitter followers nor posting more content necessarily translates into more engagement.
“Despite posting content every 6 to 20 minutes throughout the month of February, none of the most prolific content creators made the top 25 most engaged list,” said Petouhoff. “That means brands have to not only create great content but also learn how to use it for engagement. And while all of the top 25 have more than 1 million followers, so do 70 percent of the least engaged brands.”
According to Influential Media Group CEO Branden Hampton, whose Notebook of Love (@Notebook) ranks #1 on the list, “Twitter is about the human element and personal relationships people feel with a company. If you can achieve it you'll have a client for life, if you can't, they'll find a brand who has it all figured out.”
Clearly, Hampton “has it all figured out.” His @Notebook generated 1,400 responses per tweet throughout the month of February -- a full 40 percent more than @disneywords, the #2 brand on the list.
Nestivity commissioned the study to help brands identify who and understand how the most engaged brands cultivate relationships with customers, influencers and advocates using Twitter -- 140 characters at a time. The analysis, based on the InfiniGraph Engagement Analysis Platform, compared the response rate per post from February 2nd to March 5th 2013, using proprietary algorithms for determining Twitter responses, content trend scores and clicks on links and content.
The most engaged brands on Twitter, their post volume, number of followers and Klout scores are available at here, together with the complete analysis.
"Most brands have NO idea where they stand compared to their competitors,” added Petouhoff, who uses InfiniGraph to help clients measure content post volume and brand engagement scores and benchmark them against the competition. “Without this information on hand, you can create the blueprint to lead engagement in your market.”
The bottom line? “The more people like you and the information you provide, the more likely they are to use your company’s service or to buy your products,” explained Hampton.
