    Hi everyone,

    Just looking to see what other people would do in my situation.

    For the past 3-4 years I have ran a sports handicapping/picking business, primarily through Twitter. I built a following of close to 4,000 users in this time not once doing any type of marketing. All of this was completely organic traffic from other users re-tweeting my content. At the moment I have anywhere from 35-50 subscribing members per 60 days paying $150 each. Ok...but not nearly as good as it could be.

    In the past month I have started looking into the stats on Twitter for the first time and realize that my impression rate is very low (avg. 600 per tweet) and my engagement rate is even lower (2-10 re-tweets or likes per post, max). Many of the bigger users in this industry have followings of 100,000+ and huge engagement rates, 500-1000 RT's and Likes per post.

    I tried using Tweepi to follow the users they are following in hopes of getting users to follow back. In the past 10 days I have followed the maximum of 900 per day, and my Twitter following has actually DECREASED by 200, rather than going up. Is following/un-following the wrong approach to go if I am looking for new paying subscribers rather than making money off of my followers via ads or shout outs?

    What would you do to grow my following in hopes of new subscribers?
