I know about some of the automation tools, but is that a good idea? Someone said you risk getting your account banned? I'm using socialooph on my account for my site mlmrc but it just does a few tweets a day. It doesn't really do anything else. Plus I have recharge it ever 3 months or so as I'm using their free service. But what would be ideal is just automating the whole thing. Just have it growing on it's own, so you don't waste endless time on it. Because I think I've spent probably hundreds of hours so far. Just to make marginal progress.
