    This is a method I have been using that puts quality above quantity. It's designed to drive high quality traffic to your content. It works best if you have QUALITY content that you are producing on a regular basis. It works by searching for @messages that have been sent to high profile twitter accounts within your niche. The reason this works is that most @messages are from real users who are trying to talk to their heor's within the niche - so by building a list of them you are bulding a list of prospects within your niche. That you can use on an ongoing basis.

    Step 1:

    Draw up a list of high profile twitter accounts within your niche.

    Step 2:

    Download archivist which is a twitter search tool that runs on the desktop.

    http://visitmix.com/work/archivist-desktop/

    Step 3:

    Open archivist and then type into the search box @target_username where target_username is one of the high profile twitter accounts that you researched in step 1

    Step 4:

    Save the list of tweets that it archivist generates.

    Step 5:

    Repeat for each of your target twitter usernames..

    Step 6:

    Open each of the saved files using EXCEL and copy the list of twitter accounts that have sent the @ message. Put it into a text file. So now you have one single text file that contains all the prospect twitter accounts .

    Step 7:

    Using notepad ++ or similar go through the list and exclude duplicates.

    Step 8:

    Using your software of choice you can then do wait and reply technique with this list as your target people to send tweets to. You can repeat the process each day so you build up a bigger and bigger list of prospect twitter accounts to target with your message.

    Step 9:

    Tweet these prospects using @message technique each time you release new content that they would be interested in.


    Conclusion:

    Hope this helps people to build targeted lists of prospects from twitter. Remeber with twitter less is sometimes more. Its not necessary tto send 100,000 tweets per day to drive traffic - whats really required is to send your tweets to users who are real and genuine prospects for your buisnsess.

    It works really well. I have been using for a long time in a highly competetive niche. If you get stuck or need any help - ask away.

    Plenty of people use this method, but nice job laying it out in an easy to follow format.

    Could also create a ZP template to do this. Just a thought ;)

    I love you...

    But seriously this is exactly what I need for the new marketing plan I'm about to put into effect with TweetAdder. This will be much better than what I had in mind since it targets people who are extremely targeted and recently active.

    when tweet using wait and reply do you bypass the 127 tweets limit of twitter. then you can tweet again in an hour?
    cos i see this one account.. continues tweeting..

    TWITTER: clone1507
    TWITTER: clone1507

    with 320,000 tweets when expand details send " via tweet promo 81"
    can you tell what is he using to tweet via "tweet promo 81".
    when you click "tweet promo 81" u go directly to a face book fan page.
    but i know he is using this method.
    he send tweets using at mention to campaign..
    i wonder why his account not getting suspended cos sometimes when you mention to people
    they report you spam and account get suspended..
    i have been watching this account its five months already.

    TWITTER: clone1507

    any idea how he do it?

    I think you can tag more people in one tweet? So with 1k names would probably have to post 200 tweets +-?

    Yes that was my point, guess I have to find a bot for this or create my own.
