    To some this will seem obvious, but basically, at this moment in time, my twitter account for 1 project is getting around 150-200 followers a day. A high percentage are ones following me back, but it seems to have gone semi-viral as looking at my logs on Tweet Adder, quite a few are following me first. Also on many people's Twitter accounts they are retweeting me and saying things such as 'Be sure to follow <my twitter>".

    They are highly targeted and without giving my plan all away, what these people have in their tweets make it obvious that they are interested in this - so I grab their profiles automatically using Tweet Adder and follow them. When the profiles to follow reaches 0 it auto searches again and continues finding new profiles, and so on. So finding people to follow is no longer a problem.

    The 'problem' is, the only ideas I have at the moment is to do the following:

    - Set up a blog news section on Wordpress (actually done this but it needs the theme and content added - would love to auto blog if possible from other sites).

    - Plan to add an Amazon store on a part of the site so people can buy things related to my core theme.

    - I've used Interspire to allow people to 'subscribe' grab their email address for future marketing purposes.

    - Will also add a forum/messageboard to the site for people to discuss the theme (very popular).


    Can you guys think of other things I can add and monetize from this?

    i'm not doing this personally but people say that twitter traffic and adsense is a good duo, so you can try adsense along with amazon

    make sure you mod the shit out of that forum... I'm kinda in the exact same boat, had about 400+ sign up for my forum in 2 days then it started getting spammed like a motha, so bad that I had to shut it down for a couple of weeks to mod it... that in turn pissed some a lot of people off, and i lost a lot of good business.

    Well... my plan is to eventually get some of the trusted visitors to help Mod it. I don't fancy being sat at the computer reading every message, but more, get a few selected people to do that for me.

    What's the best forum software to use, anybody know? Also, one that allows Adsense to be included in the threads.

    phpbb is a great software, and is open source. If you're looking to spend a bit, vBulletin works great.

    I believe both allow Adsense.
