    Hi,

    this is the first time I become active in this forum and start posting some information about my project to keep myself motivated and also to get in touch with other people and help them on their journey.
    For now that's enough you should know about me - I don't want to waste time talking about nothing really important.
    As far as I am concerned, I focus my efforts exclusively on the platform twitter and how I can use this platform for marketing purposes and obviously to earn some money.
    Some information you should know:
    - I use FollowLiker to manage my twitter profiles
    - FollowLiker runs 24/7 on an amazon server which is free for one year (no proxy use so far)
    - Currently I focus on the development of 5 profiles (total: ~88.000 followers)
    - I plan on investing every dollar I earn in better software or new accounts for the following months
    - Currently waiting for the $50 payout I earned during the last few weeks promoting content with PPC (earning per day over last 14 days: $35.00)

    I am constantly searching for new methods to grow twitter accounts and would appreciate your help/inspiration. My current strategy is mainly follow/unfollow large amounts of targeted people in my niche.
    Enough information for right now. Feel free to ask questions or help me out in some way. Thanks!

    So it turned out that 3 of my twitter accounts have been blocked by twitter. I guess this is due to the fact that I did run 4-5 accounts on the same IP which obviously is pretty "dangerous". I did not have any problems when I uses 3 accounts for one IP. It is easy to unblock the accounts but that's not a long term solution as it is quite annoying and too risky. Consequently, I am pretty sure that I will invest a few bucks in dedicated proxies and run my accounts on them. I used proxy servers a year ago so I know a good provider and will set up everything this week.
    For my main account which is around 66.000 followers I did hit a new record in terms on link clicks for my tweets. I hit 800+ clicks in a day which is quite satisfying for me at the moment given the fact that quite a few followers are unfortunately not active any longer and the content which generated the link clicks is not very targeted to my account as it is general advertisement.
    I will be running a test with auto replies on a specific keyword which matches the advertisement I will send as a reply. Probably I will be aiming for 100 replies per day and obviously track the amount of link clicks I could realize with this strategy to make sure whether it is worth focusing more on this time of promotion or dismiss it.
    My long term goal is making at least 400$ per month passively by the end of this year with twitter solely.
    I will keep you up to date and provide some data about my tests. Don't know whether I will post daily but I certainly will stay active here.

    I have a few questions: in what niche are your accounts and how do you monetize them, you mentioned ppc but can you tell us a little bit more, do you use sites like mylikes or sth else? How many people do you follow a day? And good luck on your project.

    My accounts are mainly in the personal development niche focusing on inspiration/motivation, health/fitness, mind development and general happyness. As you can see they cover a quite broad range of topics which was not necessarily the best idea I think because it makes it harder to have a targeted audience for one specific topic. However, given the fact that I already built up a few accounts I cannot entirely change them but I will certainly make sure that I am more targeted with the new accounts I will start creating soon.
    I use a site similar to mylikes for right now but I think as soon as I am more advanced and the follower count starts reaching high levels I will build a website and start promoting products on it and combine it with advertisement (adsense etc.)
    Usually I follow in between 600-800 people with my biggest account which never made any problems. Right now I don't follow anyone with this account as I want to figure out how my follower level is influenced by tweeting around 100 + tweets a day mainly related to social buzz type op advertising. So far I can say that follower levels only drop very slightly which is quite surprising for me. I considered this as some kind of "spamming" that's why I am surprised that I currently only lose around 10-20 followers per day. Obviously I will continue following people pretty soon with this account. My other accounts follow less people, around ~400-600 which should be fine given the fact that they are aged and already have a follower base. I will keep you updated on potential problems with this amount of following.
    Thank you for the advice. I will buy the proxies today and set everything up it should be fine.
    Unfortunately I cannot pm you as I don't have enough posts and I don't fulfill the requirements for sending pms right now ;/ . I am interested in your tool. You can send me a message on my mail account I set up for this purpose. It is a gmail account and the name of it is TheTwitterGuyBHW. I hope this does not violate any rules :eek:

    Ok so for my current test of sending 100 relatively targeted replies per day I am not satisfied with the results so far. The article I promoted with this method only got 9 link clicks so far which is not sufficient for my expectations. I guess the problem is not that people generally don't care about replies and ignore them it is more of a problem that FollowLiker does not scrape the tweets I want to reply to very well. I read in several other posts that the scraper of FollowLiker is not the best and I am pretty convinced that this is true. The best way I think targeted replies would work is sending a tweet first which deals with a certain topic in an engaging way and than sending replies promoting articles which deal with the same topic to the people who engaged with the initial tweet. This way the targeted audience is already pre-selected in an efficient way. Figuring out how to do this and dealing with the proxy servers I will buy today are my main goals today. In addition I will also test whether the number of replies can be increased to 150 without causing any problems. Thank you for engaging with me I am happy to answer your question or get tips on how to do things better.

    Ok so the last two days have been really challenging for me in what concerns technical setup and program problems/errors. I bought 10 private proxies to keep my accounts save but unfortunately only selected to private ip of my vps and not the public ip of my vps as a source which may have access to the proxies which was obviously a stupid mistake. There are many more aspects I was struggeling with but I think I have solved most of the problems which was time consuming for me especially because I don't have a background in informatics and little technical knowledge.
    For right now my earnings are relatively stable at around $3 per day with only my main account posting exclusively tweets. I think that I should be able to increase my daily earning for this account to around $5 per day during the next month if I include replies and maybe direct messages. For right now my focus lies on making sure that no accounts get blocked by twitter any longer. That's why I will use the smaller aged accounts only with very conservative tweeting and following settings and gradually increase the numbers.
    I will focus on the potential of replies during the next few days and try to figure out how to make people interact with my replies. Even a relatively small percentage of people (10%-15%) who interact with my replies would lead to a quite substantial earnings potential. That's why I will focus on this aspect as long as I figure out how to do it efficiently or I make sure it's not worth the time at all.

    I just want to Keep you guys updated really quickly:
    - I set up my accounts in FL --> combined Followers: ~100.000
    - Reply Settings have not been successful so far for generating enough link clicks
    - I will only use my biggest account for CPC --> all other accounts only few tweets with links to make sure they can grow fast
    - Reply Experiments have not been successful so far... I will continue experimenting
    -I can happily announce that I received my first payment of $72 which is not that much but shows me that the website I am using is not a total scam

    Oh I am sorry about that :eek: I unblocked them manually by changing password/ providing phone number etc. I never had one of my accounts ghosted so I am sorry but I cannot help you with that... :/

    You should not expect too high follow back numbers... If 10 to 20 percent of the people I follow do follow me back that is totally fine for me. You can obviously get more followers first by following really big accounts which automatically follow back or you could follow the followers of a followback account for that purpose. Obviously this wont help you really or give you real exposure but it can add social proof to your account when people see that you already have an existing follower base. Alternatively buying fake followers is also an option...

    Add me on skype to discuss more about it: mrkingchip

    I am sorry that I neglected this journey here quite a while but it seemed for me that nobody was giving a damn and I was very busy with work and other things lately. Thats why I did not progress too much. The only thing worth saying is that I have around 25 accounts running right now but I still have a few problems with the software which I will hopefully solve in the next few days. I am expecting to gain around 1000 followers per day with these accounts.
    As an approximation one can state that 50000 real active followers can easily (worst case) generate $2.50 per day. With that expected amount of daily followers I would add an estimated earning potential of (1000/50000 *$2.50 per day) around 0,05$ per day. This seems like nothing but at the end of one year it could result to $18.25 per day which is not nothing for me...
