    So I am considering buying twitter adder. I downloaded their demo to try it out. Not bad, looks like a solid product...

    But I send out 250 (the limit) targeted follows. Only to those in my niche and who have posted in the last 24 hours.

    Out of the 250 follows I sent I only had 10 of them follow me back, and I know for a fact half of them are bots, so in reality 5.


    Is this normal for Twitter? Can I really only expect about 15 new followers for 1000 invites? With other social networks I get about 40% to accept my invites.

    Well I used up my trial follows so I can't give it another shot, anyway please let me know if I am doing something wrong or if this is normal so I don't waste my time with twitter.

    Thanks!

    You should look at the followers of followers of people in your niche, chances are they will be less likely to be bots.

    I get about a 20-30% follow back for 1000 followers.

    Seriously bro I have 5 twitter programs, and if you want one that's worth the money go with tweetattacks.

    Its easily the best one I've got!

    I have:
    tweetadder
    hummingbird
    autopilot
    autofollow
    tweetattacks

    It's awesome!

    In my humble opinion you have to make a name for yourself on Twitter, you have to offer something of value to your following, ie. you tweet back, you engage. Then you can push whatever products you have going to the niche without having to worry about your accounts being deleted etc. At the very least, reply when someone mentions you. Try, twiends.com it works pretty well from what I've seen. Use that on multiple accounts and see what happens.
