Before starting… What is a binder?
A binder is very similar to a folder. They work the same way. At home (if we are organized enough 😉 ) we use folders to group the invoices, for example. We group them per year, per month or per week. And we all group things differently; using our own criteria in order to make it easier to access and use all the documents. It’s easy to understand, isn’t it? So, that is how binders work. They are a way of classifying all the information inside our Twitter report and to make the most out of it. In this post you will learn how to create binders and how to make the most out of your Twitter report.
What criteria should I use to create binders inside my Twitter report?
There is not a defined criteria. So, don’t worry. Each Twitter report, each user and each campaign have their own needs. You will be able to organize the content by users, by keywords or however you can imagine. This is one of the best parts of our reports, because they don’t just allow us to obtain information but they give us the chance to manage them as wanted. You can discover more about the Classify panel and how to use it in this post. But, today, we are going to be talking about how to create binders.
How to create binders: Suggested binders
In the Classify panel we will be given the option of using suggested binders. What are these? Very simple. They are terms (hashtags, keywords, accounts…) that have frequently appeared in our report. That is why the tool sees them as useful terms. And trust us, most of the times they are useful. In order to use this terms as binders we just have to put the cursor on the three dots which appear next to the term and click on the option “Create binder”. And, if the suggested binder wasn’t useful we can click the “Decline” option and a new one will appear (there will always be 10 different suggested binders).
How to create binders: Creating a new one
To create binders which are not suggested we will have to click the “New binder” button. Once we have done this, a panel automatically opens. There, we will have to define the criteria our binder will follow. First of all, we have to give our new binder a name. The second and most important thing we have to do is to add the terms, hashtags or users we want to use as criteria. What does this mean? This means that we can create, for example, a binder called “Tweet Binder” and make it include those tweets sent by @TweetBinder.
As we can see in the image above it is possible to add tweets which include a term or hashtag, which include Twitter accounts or which include both. In conclusion, you can do whatever you want by managing your report as needed.
Enjoy and take advantage of your Twitter impact report by creating binders. The process of creating a binder is fast, very simple and, most importantly, really useful.
