At a first glance, trendmaps can’t be understandable, but if you search a bit more it should be a useful tool for your twitter strategy. With trendsmaps you can know the following to help your plan:
– Trending topics in every country in the world
– People with more retweets and comments in every country
– Globally trending users
– Trending videos
The possibilities to make an incredible strategy are not huge but you can always make it better with other tools like socialbro, kred or analytics. I can start talking about the program but it’s always easy to understand with an example.
Leonard’s Photography studio
Leonard Smith owns a photography studio in west London. The business is going ok but he wants to expand the company and get more profits. Social media can help you to do this.
Imagine that Leonard already has a twitter account with all the outreachers and influencers that he needs (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, please read my article about Kred)

Today, 18th November #buygirsaloudsomethingnew is trending topic in London. They want to sell a song in iTunes and donate all the money to a children charity. Why doesn’t Leonard try something nice and talk directly with Girls Aloud in Twitter? He can propose to them that if they mention him as a campaign partner he will make a special photography session with the children and the improvements to their lives with the donations. Of course, for free. But trust me, everybody will love this idea. At least, give it a try.
Retweet #buygirlsaloudsomethingnew followers that are making nice comments to spread their words and make your own tweet about this topic
Let’s say another trending topic is #biglovetomyboy. Imagine something nice to tweet in this topic. Like if you already made a wonderful wedding session and the couple doesn’t mind to post a picture of them, you can post a picture in #biglovetomyboy topic as the bride and adds the groom’s account in the tweet with one of the nicest wedding pictures. Or if you already have a nice picture of your children you can upload a picture in the same topic.
Assuming another trending topic is #bikinibasketball. This topic is about an article publicised in the USA about a team of girls that usually play basketball in bikini. The shame is that Leonard’s bussiness is in London but imagine that all the bikini basketball stuff is happening in his city. What a better opportunity than go to a match, take pictures, talk with the players, pick their twitter’s accounts and upload the pics on the topic. It is almost certain they will reply and you’ll generate engagement, retweets and comments. Don’t forget to mention the coach’s team. He will probably have something nice to say.
