Yes there is a cool way to always automatically tweet the Information to Twitter, when you uploaded any new Product to SL Maketplace.
You need to know how you can automatically tweet RSS-Feed entrys to Twitter. If you dont know.. read this Guide first: How to automatically post your RSS Feed to Twitter.
Lets get started!
1. You should first log in to SL Marketplace.
2. Click on “My Marketplace” and then on “My Store”.
3. Now look at the URL in your Web-Browser.
The URL of my SL Marketplace Store for example, looks so:
As you can see… there is a number in my and your URL.. my Storenumber is 37414. Look at your Store-URL and write your Store-Number (Store-ID) down.
4. Every Store on SL Marketplace has an own Feed but most peoples do not know it! Here you can see how the URL of my Store RSS-Feed looks like:
You can see again that there is my Store-ID 37414. Just take this Feed URL above but change my Store-ID to the Number of your Store-ID.
5. Now you know your SL Marketplace Store Feed.
6. Now apply it like in this Guide mentioned: How to automatically post your RSS Feed to Twitter. Then you should be able to let TwitterFeed automatically post on your Twitter Account, everytime when you upload new Products to your SL Marketplace Store. All your friends and fans will be informed everytime when you have new Products in your Store.
This is a good way to get known too as there are lots of Second Life Users on Twitter. Yes it is possible that you boost your sales on this way too.
Additional hint: Setup Twittertags like “#SL“, “#SecondLife” or “#SLM” as Prefix or Suffix when you create your SL Marketplace Store Feed on TwitterFeed! This is a cool way, so that each of your Updates get found by Second Life Users on Twitter!
Someone asked me “How do you automatically post your latest Blogentrys (Rss Feed) into Twitter.
Some Content Management Systems and Blogging Tools have it already on board but if not…
There is still a Solution!
First we need to register on TwitterFeed. That is the website which will help us to feed our RSS Content to Twitter later.
When you finished your registration, then log in.
You know see the Feed Dashboard… Later you will see all Feeds you created here.
But now lets create our first Feed which will automatically post our latest RSS Feed entrys to Twitter in the future then.
Click on “Create new Feed” in the Dashboard of TwitterFeed.
Now everything will be very self-explanatory:
As you can see… you just need to name your Feed (It is just the name so that you can find it in the TwitterFeed Dashboard later, if you want to edit it again)..
And in the second box, you need to put in your Feed URL. In the case of my blog it would be:
Usually this would be already enough in Step 1 but you can additionaly open the advanced settings on the bottom:
I suggest it because you can customize how your Feeds will be posted to Twitter.
You can decide, when TwitterFeed should check your RSS Feed for new posts and how much new Feed entrys should be posted to Twitter (Up to 5).
You can decide if it should be posted to Twitter with “Title & Description”, with Title or Description only.
You can decide about the Postsorting.
You can prefix and suffix each Tweet (Add words in front or after the main tweet).
At least you could also setup a Keyword Filter.
After all this you can continue to Step 2:
Here you just choose your Service.. In fact we want to click on “Twitter” here but as you can see.. We could also setup our Facebook and others here.
Click on Twitter and then click on “Authenticate Twitter”… This is the way how you can connect TwitterFeed to your Twitter Account. On the bottom.. “UTM tags”.. there you dont need to change anything.
Now just hit “Create Service” and after it “All done!” and everything is done! Its easy and you can repeat it with every Feed you own! Peoples will then be informed through your Twitter Account, whenever you have a new Feed entry in one of the Feeds you added to TwitterFeed.
Today I did publish The SL Daily Ledger .
So there you will find some top Storys about Second Life which are collected via my favorite Peoples on Twitter.
For all Bloggers.. The Website of the Application twitterfeed.com for Twitter seems to be back online now.
