    Hi everyone,

    Over the last few years I have been coding a variety of web apps and have combined some of this code into a new web app which I would like to offer to BHW members to beta test.

    WHAT's The BIG IDEA ?

    Aim of the app is to quickly and easily turn twitter followers/ users into niche specific email list subscribers. You can then monetise these through a niche specific autoresponder sequence (CPA, clickbaank, your own products, or however else you choose)

    WHAT YOU NEED TO DO ?

    1) You pick a niche that you want to build a targeted email list for.
    2) You create a free acount on mailchimp to host your list. (Thesemailchimp accounts allow you to have 2000 subscribers and to send 12000 emails per month)

    WHAT DOES THE APP DO ?

    1) It creates a landing page that features the front covers of 12 ebooks that are specific to the niche you have chosen (It does this using the scribd API - which gives my app access to over 1.5 billion documents on almost any niche you can imagine)

    2) This page features a headline and a twitter connect button so in order to view the documents the visitor must login to my app with twitter.

    3) when they do this the app is designed to go viral. So it automatically sends a tweet out that you prewrite using the visitors account. This tweet obviously includes a link. This means that your marketing is now targeting your followers followers and can go viral.

    4) The visitor does not "authorise" this tweet but it is sent automatically from their account as they accepted the app. I have set it to only send 1 tweet out in this way as otherwise the app iwill get banned by twiiter.

    5) The visitor is next sent to an email opt in page where they must add their email address to complete registration.

    6) the email address details along with the niche are sent to your mailchimp list.

    7) in addition to their email address the app also looks up the geographic location based upon their IP address and ads to your mail chimp list their country, region and city data which you can then use in future emal marketing to send country specific offers

    8) Finanly the user is directed to a page on our site where they can view the documents that they were interested in.

    9) You now have that users email address and can start making money by mailing offers and so on.

    SOME FURTHER THOUGHTS..

    You can literally pick any niche and build a targeted list around it without having to do any site building or content creation.

    WHATS THE CATCH...

    You need to drive your own traffic to the landing page. Its possible that we will offer twiiter traffic as an additional service in the future but as of now you will need to drive your own traffic.

    SO TO PARTICIPATE...

    1) Set up your mailchimp account and provide me with your mailchimp list ID and API key
    2) PM me your chosen niche and I will create a custom landing sequence for you.
    3) Write a tweet that the app will automatically send out when users accept it - this needs to link back to the first page in this sequence
    4) Check the sequence we have created for you and make sure that it is working correctly and thta you are happy with it.
    4) Send twitter traffic to the landing page.


    If you want to see a demonstration of this then PM me and i will send you a link to an example sequence I built that targets the golf niche.

    Please remember this is a beta test and there may be some issues with the code/ design. I would really appreciate feedback and any suggestions on improving the service.

    FINAL POINT...

    Beta testing is open to anyone.....BUT please dont waste my time (as there is 30-45 minutes manual setup work at the moment for me for each beta tester)

    SO if your not in a position to drive traffic YOURSELF from twitter please dont ask to beta test.


    FINAL, FINAL POINT... !!!

    Please post below ant feedback you have, comments, questions .... I really want to create a cool app that will benefit BHW members

    The honest answer is I have not considered a price yet. currently the final landing page which the visitor hits to view their documents has some adsense and a CPA offer on it.

    If that converts then it could be that the service remains free forever. Or users could get access to the code and install on their own sites as a wordpress theme / plugin.

    At this stage I really open minded about it. Want to get feedback and see how people feel about it....

    Would people rather use for free and have my adsense / cpa offer on final landing page .... or wouild people rather pay a small mothly fee or alternatoively pay a 1 off fee and get the theme so they can install it themselves ???

    What do you think ??

    Thanks for all the PM's. I will get you set up over the next few hours.

    If anyone else wants to beta test then please respond here in the thread and/or PM with the niche that you want to target. Dont forget you will need to set up your free mailchimp account and send the API key and list ID so that the app can automatically add email addresses to your list through their api.

    Sounds like a very interesting twitter application. I have bookmarked this thread and may be contacting you, I am not in the right situation to delve into this completely at this moment :\

    IS it only working for mailchimp as they do not allow affiliate offers.
    The concept is interesting though.

    Would like to test, hopefully you will make it to work with any other autoresponder shortly.
