Some people say twitter is worthless. Worthless to me means there is no monetization potential. This is true if you are talking about spamming affiliate links, but many people fail to think outside the box. I don't give specifics, just general scenarios so put your own twist on things. There are a ton of real people on twitter, despite there being a high ratio of spam accounts. I know this just by typing in a search term and looking at the results. I am sure if you type MMO there is going to be tons of spam, but this is besides the point. Okay, so most people who buy sites are IDIOTS, I mean stupid as stupid can be. Look at that one mans blog that sold for 10K or something. People will purchase zombie blogs just because they have a ton of social media traffic and subscribers. Here is what I would do. Make a legitimate site on a popular topic, say windows 7. (just a stupid example) Tweet for 7 or so days then start using tools to add followers. Also update your blog regularly by hand by putting your own take on news stories. Also have an opt in lightbox to get people on your aweber newsletter list. Wait about a month until your site goes supernova. In this hypothetical scenario you would probably have 1000 visitors a day + and a couple thousand subscribers to your newsletter. This should not be difficult if you offer something free and compelling for signing up to the list. I am almost never the guy who signs up for anything (advertising resistant) and even I have been tempted to sign up when the offer is tempting. Sell the site for big $$$. Alternatively you could also just use the list yourself and market products to people, building their trust all the while. I would go for the quick sale though.
