    I have over 1400+ followers and jumping daily. One question for all you tweet addicts is how can I turn these followers into a monetizing solution?

    I own numerous websites and blogs that sell marketing products to the public, however what is the best way, to not only increase my followers, but to increase traffic/sales to my products using twitter?

    I feel like I'm kind of in the dark, why twitter is such a great social network to be apart of. I haven't really seen any results from it besides more wasted time for an online marker.

    There are numerous things to market. Depends on how focused your niche/followers are. I used "be-a-magpie dot com" last month. They post ads in your timeline and pay you a cut. I experimented with one of my accts. At the time it was between 3-5k followers. It made me $98 bucks in 24 days. Truly hands free. Not a lot, but as close to free money as I've found. Once you hit the 50 euro mark you can cash out directly to your paypal acct. Pretty cool. Should do better this month as I'm gettin ready to bust 10k followers on my main acct.

    I've got 50 accts. now and have entered all of them into the magpie system. We'll see how this month goes. One drawback is Twitter's API stuff. If the Tweets stop showing up in the timeline you have to shoot twitter an email and they will fix it. Takes a day or two.

    Of course there are many other ways, CB, CJ, CPA, blogs etc.

    But hey, if I can pick up an extra 2-4k per month, hell even 1-2k for just a few minutes a day, I'll take it.

    Hope this helped...... :)

    Kinda depends on if your followers are all in a particular niche or not as well as how much buying power is in that niche. I've had good results sending traffic to weird auctions on ebay with my ebay link.

    Well my niche is in marketing and online marketing tools. I have numerous products for gmail and craigslist that help people make gmail accounts and learn how to post on craigslist. What is the best way to redirect the traffic from twitter to my websites using www.be-a-magpie.com? Is this similar to an adwords for twitter? Please let me know

    Well maybe you need to twitter more on your account. Is your account fairly new to twitter? I'm not sure about the API tho.

    Hopefully someone can explain to you exactly your problem

    If they are quality followers and are following you only because they are interested just like one subscribes to a feed, then it will convert. If using an automated process, it probably won't convert as much because Twitter is pretty saturated of thousands of accounts just auto following whoever.

    Damn I have the same problem - I have 18k followers spread over a bunch of accounts - some targetted some not - I've thrown CPA (3500 clicks and NO actions - even with DMR) , CB - nearly 1000 hops in total and NO actions, only thing showing slight increase is adwords ($1-$2 a day) - I just cant get anything to convert. BTW also tried sending em to pre-sell landers, direct hops etc etc any ideas - this is starting to seem like a huge waste of time but I just 'know' its not!!

    I truely don't believe that big money can be made with Twitter unless you have either LAZER targeted followers who match your niche or HUGE numbers of followers.

    Here's what I'm building right as we speak:

    1) 10 Autoblogs For Specific Niches (Tech, Sports, Entertainment, etc)
    2) Setup 20 Twitter Accounts that will each be randomly fed tweets from these blogs using HootSuite. (not with RSS...but completely randomly using macros to make things look as "natural" as possibe)
    3) Grow each of these targeted Twitter accounts to 10,000+ by attracting targeted followers using Twitter Snipe for following and Hummingbird for unfollowing.

    From there it's simply math...

    *200,000 followers
    *36 accounts x 25 tweets per day = 900 tweets per day
    *Assume 3% of your 200,000 followers clicks any of your 900 tweets = 6,000 unique hits.
    *Social traffic doesn't convert super well, so just assume 3% converts to clicks = 180 clicks
    * Assume click value = .75 cets (averages across all niches) and you have $135 per day in click revenue.

    Add to that revenue you can glean from Auto-DM offers on the front end as you follow new people as well as 2 or 3 straight promotional tweets per day per account and you can easily double that.

    From there, you just double the number of autoblogs and the number of Twitter accounts you run to increase revenue.

    -You have to interact. Twitter is flooded with spammers. It sucks and it takes time but post RTs, and @ responses. Even if it's just @XYZ Thanks! It makes you seem real, and people pay attention to that.

    -Post once an hour. Or once every half hour. If I'm following just 100 active tweeters - I won't see your posts. Don't post more than once an hour/half hour or you seem like spam.

    -Make Unique posts. If you just post the same tweet or spam link over and over - no one will click on it.

    -Don't include a link in every tweet (same reasons as above)
