    Hi guys
    I am new to btw

    I looking at ways to use Twitter to broadcast to a targeted audience.

    We run a book club discussion group and I was hoping to drive book enthusiasts to the group via Twitter.

    Any suggestions.

    Use hashtags? Ideally use trending hashtags like #mondaymotivation and #bookclub in same tweet. The tweet something interesting with a picture if possible

    There's art, skill, and finesse that comes to not only gaining a real audience, but gaining the right audience, and keeping them engaged and sharing your stuff.

    The basic strategy stripped down to its core:

    Set up your Twitter profile with a description using keywords and include your website.

    Follow the followers of other twitter accounts that match the followers you would like to have. You can follow up to 1000 people a day. This is the most important step. Following the people you want to have as followers yields about 11 follows to 1 follower gained. Follow as many people as you can as often as you can.

    Set up an auto DM (crowdfire is good) to announce what you're doing to any new followers.

    Set up an auto Reply to any new follower (some do this, I don't)

    Post quality content

    Pin a tweet

    Reply to people and engage

    Retweet

    It takes getting into the habit of hopping on twitter, daily, for 10 or 20 minutes to follow a lot of people, post a tweet, retweet a tweet, like a few things.
    (Use Buffer if you want to prearrange and schedule tweets... I personally prefer to go to twitter each day and find something interesting than to line up a series of tweets for the week... but others prefer scheduling)

    Thanks guys, appreciate the advise. Im actually looking for ways to leverage multiple twitter accounts to gain traffic through "word of mouth". Perhaps influencer programs, or using a bot? As always, its about trying to get the message and engagement as wide as possible, at a reasonable cost...

    Any advise would be appreciated

    Ok then, why don't you offer your thoughts and method.
    My ideas/methods work excellent for me; so much so 90% of my business is Twitter related.
    Perhaps you got banned. I don't. And there's no reason I would be banned for doing what I recommended.

    please, offer something constructive

    first thing is that whoever will follow 1000 people in a day, he will be banned

    Sorry to disagree with you. When I start a new Twitter account, I add an email address, phone number, tweet once, and then follow 1000 people. Every day. I've never had an account banned in 8-9 years.

    Here is the general rule:

    If you tweet a bunch of crap and are obviously just trying to sell people a load of horse shit.... then yes... Dark Comedy method will not be good for you

    However...

    If you look legitimate and tweet good content then Dark Comedy routine is perfect for you
