THE MYSTERIOUS MARKETER'S CHALLENGE [APR 2011] - Twitter Marketing
Share on:

The Mysterious Marketer's Challenge

The purpose of The Mysterious Marketer's Challenge is to challenge us to build up fundamental online marketing skills that will help us with our business.

Each challenge will last for a period of one month, starting from the beginning of the month to the end of the month. Each month will provide a new challenge that needs to be accomplished every single day for 30 days, or from whenever you start until the end of the month.

I'll be actively participating too, so let's all try our best!

Why do the same thing over and over again for 30 days?
In order to get good at anything, constant repetition is needed. However, more than repetition, consistency is the key.

Doing the same thing only once a month or once a week won't be as effective as doing it everyday. Also, it takes about 30 days for habits to be developed. The MM Challenge provides a grounds for support and accountability in developing positive habits that will benefit us all our life.

There's are no prizes at the moment for these challenges, but they may be added in the future as more and more people join. However, the one who will benefit most from this is you.

April 2011: Twitter Marketing Challenge

This month's challenge is to do at least one new thing that will increase the number of Twitter followers you have each and every day until the end of April. To give you a set target, the main aim of the challenge is to go from whatever number of Twitter followers you have to having 100,000 Twitter followers.

Although you may still use a method for more than one day, every day you will have to try or use at least one new method for increasing your number of Twitter followers.

It doesn't matter whether the method you try or are using is successful or not, but the key thing is that you should try at least something.

Regardless of how you do it, the key objective of this challenge is to get you into the motions of increasing your number of Twitter followers everyday, and building a strong asset for yourself in the form of a powerful Web 2.0 property.

You will also be able to develop creativity in your online marketing approach by trying something new each and everyday and talking about it.

In addition to gaining more Twitter followers, which is the main aim of the challenge, you may also experiment with methods of monetizing your Twitter account in this challenge.

So, let's get started...

The Rules

1. The aim is to go from whatever number of Twitter followers you have now, to at least 100,000 Twitter followers by the end of April. To do this, every single day you will have to perform at least one action that will bring you closer to this goal.


2. Every person will start by posting in this thread with the following calendar checklist:

March 22:
March 23:
March 24:
March 25:
March 26:
March 27:
March 28:
March 29:
March 30:
March 31:

April 01:
April 02:
April 03:
April 04:
April 05:
April 06:
April 07:
April 08:
April 09:
April 10:
April 11:
April 12:
April 13:
April 14:
April 15:
April 16:
April 17:
April 18:
April 19:
April 20:
April 21:
April 22:
April 23:
April 24:
April 25:
April 26:
April 27:
April 28:
April 29:
April 30:

Every day, as you do something new to increase your number of Twitter followers, you will need to come back to your checklist post and update it with a link to a blog post discussing about what you did on that day next to the date, like so:

April 01: My Twitter Challenge Blog Post [1922]
April 02:

The number in brackets indicates the number of Twitter followers you have for that day, making it easier for your to track your progress across the month.

3. Also, you will still need to add a new reply to this thread every day stating that you have done your task for the day, a link to your blog post indicating what you have done, and optionally you may also add some notes about any new things that you may while participating in this challenge and which others participating in this challenge might benefit from.

You may also add your comments about how you are feeling with regards to marketing on Twitter. Is it getting easier? Is it become smoother?


4. In the same post where your checklist is, you should also add a link to your Twitter account so that other challengers may visit and follow your account.

So for other people participating in this challenge, we may all follow each other and help each other to improve our Twitter follower count at the same time.

This will provide you with great benefits.

When you are blogging about what you did for the challenge, you may refer back to this thread in your blog post. When your readers who are reading your blog post come to this thread to participate in the challenge as well, they will also follow all the other challengers with their Twitter account.

The result is that, as the number of people participating in the challenge increase, the number of challengers following each other will also increase exponentially, helping us in achieving our goal.

For easy reference, the post below this contains a list of the Twitter accounts of all the people actively participating in this challenge so that you can follow them with ease.


Your Benefits

1. You'll be developing the necessary social networking skills on Twitter, and learn to build a Twitter account with a lot of Twitter followers and a wide reach quite easily.

2. You will learn by yourself and by reading other challenger's blog posts about creative ways of marketing and improve your creativity at the same time.

3. You'll earn more money, you'll gain more traffic, you'll boost your brand exposure. A lot of people are watching this thread, so you'll get a lot of exposure for yourself.

4. You'll learn a lot just by reading the insights that other people have posted in this thread.

5. You will massively increase the number of Twitter followers you have, and build a Twitter account that will prove to be an asset for you in the future.

6. You will be creating a ton of great blog posts with valuable content which will help to improve your readership. You may also re-purpose that content later on into free reports, or to sell as a WSO.

7. You will learn to discipline yourself to adhere to a strict schedule by following the rhythm of the challenge.

Let the challenge begin!

Hi Mattasdan,

I'm not really good at it either, but I'm hoping to learn as I go.

Both from myself, and from other participants.

Cheers,
Infinity

For my first post with regards to the challenge, I opened with some key points on how it can be really powerful to have a lot of Twitter followers.

Included in the post, I also introduced this challenge, and invited my readers to participate if they wished too:

7 Ways TWITTER MARKETING Can Be Used As A Powerful Weapon

My first action for today in beginning this challenge was to edit my Twitter background and layout. I created a quick and simple Twitter background design that is unique to me, and which is also clean and easy on the eyes.

First impressions are important, so this is my first step before doing other things to increase the number of Twitter followers that I have. It will also help in branding my Twitter account:

Sometimes Twitter goes down because there are too many people using it at the same time... So if that happens, you can only wait until it starts working again.

Yesterday in the Twitter Marketing challenge, I decided to look around for some free tools and resources that I could use to build up and manage my Twitter following.

I found quite a lot of them and I talk about it here:

This Is What Free Twitter Software Looks Like

It makes for a good start by preparing a resource of all the tools and information that I would need.

Haven't started using the software though. Will try it out and post about it later for the challenge.

It happens all the time to me as well, even on a fast server!

Internet Marketing is an extremely lucrative career if pursued earnestly and in the right ways, however it is no get rich quick scheme, which is often the case put forward by so many of the "Guru's" that have set themselves up and unfortunately give our profession a bad name. Fortunately for us there are some extremely good, and strangely oftentimes free resources out there that we can use to help us unravel the mysteries of SEO, Blogging, Affiliate Marketing and article writing.
