    hello BHW,
    i saw this thread in another forum adn i like it , and want to share it with you here , hope you like it :

    First I have to tell you I did not use any twitter marketing secrets or super techniques.
    The method I used is boring, mundane and mentioned in every half reasonable twitter marketing guide. The free ones

    Step One - Place something interesting and relevant to your niche in your twitter profile.

    Step Two - Use an attractive and niche relevant twitter back ground.

    Step Three - Make a list of 4-5 big movers in your niche who have say 10k or more of twitter followers

    Step Four - This is the boring but essential part. Go through the list of people following your number one big mover from step 3 and follow 2000 of them. Twitter will not let you follow more. Make sure you don't do more than 200 a day so this will take you around 10 days.

    Depending on how well you do steps one and two, at least 500 of these people will follow you back.

    Step Five - Unfollow all of the people you followed in Step four. If you want to be careful, unfollow a maximum of 200 a day.

    You will lose some followers but not many so don't worry.

    Step Six - Repeat steps 4 and 5

    My results - I did this process three times and currently have 2360'ish followers that are all very relevant to my niche.

    My mistakes - I made mistakes. I did not have a nice back ground until round 3. I only limited the people I followed to 200 a day in round 3.

    Boring - This is boring and some what time consuming but you can do it in your town time like when you are watching tv or chatting to people online.

    Help - there are a lot of programs/services that will identify the people you are following who are not following and do other stuff. I tried 3 but found they either did not work properly or were not worth the effort.

    Next - Now I need to learn how to use this mass of followers to drive traffic and interest to the blog I want them for. Any tips and suggestions are welcome

    I setted up Tweetbuddy and forgot about it and have 10k followers niche related in my account. // P.S. I got one account banned with tweetbuddy ( after i wrote to Twitter and they reinstalled it , but i am afraid i wont be using tweetbuddy in it again)..

    The 10k account DID not get banned (THIS IS MY GUESS) perhaps because i started using it when i had 200 followers and i was active (tweeting , retwitting and messagin) at least once a day ...

    go figure..

    anyway, i will commit suicide before following and unfollowing so many people manually! Just my two cents!

    Thanks for the share anyway!

    That depends on a lot of things. There are a lot of things you can do with 10k followers.

    At the end of the day it is Always about niche. As i told you the followers i got with Tweetbuddy are niche related.. the keywords i used to harvest, and the following related to other users followers is REALLY specific... i am working a city populatio demographics and targeting daily deal affiliates.. so yes.. 10k convert pretty good on DAILY basis..

    cheers.

    Ugh.. good method, but replace the manual part by TweetAttacks! Even the free version of that program can follow the followers of your "big movers" account automatically!
    Also the unfollowing can be automated with TweetAttacks..

    Besides TweetAttacks I like using Twiends for some extra followers while maintaining a good follower/following ratio..

    The only problem with this is, your only adding other Internet Marketers, no clients are actually going to be looking at your tweets :\

    Good idea, can all be automated though as stated above.

    Trouble is though, you end up with a load of crap followers.
    I had 24k followers and trying to monetise was a pain in the ass.

    I think the only way to properly work twitter is to really get stuck in with tweeting etc - you need to make real people in your niche want to follow you, not just robots.

    I agree you will get your mix of marketers but I changed my strategy a little.

    For instance if I was selling sporting goods, instead of following the guys following Foot Locker or Dicks Sporting goods I started following the guys following say a particular sports technique website, this way I am actually getting some athletes or fans of the sports as opposed to other Im'ers.

    So if my niche was tennis, I would find a tennis technique website on twitter and follow those followers to find active tennis players or those trying to learn tennis.

    Make sense?

    If you are looking for males of a certain age, target a sports technique niche website. If you are looking for women try following those that follow sites for womens issues like domestic violence sites or breast cancer sites etc...
