How does an extra 3,000 Twitter followers sound to you?

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 1:09 pm

With a bit of work. …. Here’s 3,000 Twitter followers for you .

It’s a pleasure to give @emailcopywriter credit for bringing me this idea.

It starts by creating a profile that says you’re interesting and someone worth knowing and when visitors click on your URL … For heaven’s sake don’t try to sell them something or enroll them into your programme.  Selling at this stage will cut your “Follows” in half. …. Instead offer a complimentary report and build your Non-Twitter list.

NEXT STEP     Is to create an appropriate, generic “Thanks for the follow” note because this step is an important cornerstone for building a relationship with your new contact.

STEP 3.     Now we’re heading for http://tweetlater.com where you’ll fill in the appropriate blanks and boxes to automate your “Thanks for the follow” process.    Here’s where you’ll also insert your “Thanks for the follow” message.

STEP 4.     Here’s the work part!. …. Find Twitters whose ideas are similar to yours and “Follow” almost everyone on their list. …. If you have a carefully crafted profile ….. Don’t be surprised to discover that about one third reciprocate and are now following you.

I’m aware that it sounds like a bit of work but the important “Thanks for the follow” process is automated and it shouldn’t take more than ten minutes to Follow 30 Twitters and automatically, add ten followers every day.    (Sounds like 3,000 followers in a year from your direct efforts alone).

As you post and share your discoveries;  You’ll also start to enjoy exponential growth when your followers care enough to start talking about you, both on and off Twitter.

Within 5 minutes of using this strategy …. I was well on the way to meeting my new follower target for the day.

  1. Great post, I’ve seen some thanks for the follow message with link to a page with twitter and other networking resources, kind of like your complimentary report.

    Part of being interesting, interact with others, hold conversations, not just talking to yourself.

  3. Hi Teddy

    Thanks for the info about how to automate the thanks for following emails. I had wondered about that.

    Apart from that, this is very similar to a post I made on Gutzy Women about a month ago.

    Guess that means it’s a method that works!

  4. Great reminder Teddy. A few minutes can mean the start of a relationship with someone who becomes a Keeper! Saving time in the process is a bonus.
