Some days ago there was this thread about http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...marketing.html
I spent some thinking: should I share my method on "How to Build a Massive List of Followers"? Why didn't I share it directly? Well, considering the amount of spam and bots on the twitter network, I think it's obvious to anyone that a completely free, "below the radar" way of building a twitter network might attract some of the bad guys...
Only use this method to provide real, hard-core value to the twitter network, or I will get bad karma and project that back to you. Remember, I live in Indonesia. People here know voodoo and stuff, and I've got connections...
Ok, so here is the outline for what you need to do:
1. Get a gmail account
2. Get a twitter account
3. Get a socialoomph.com account and set it up for the usual autofollow and stuff
4. Get an addnewfollowers.com-account (yes, the sign up process sucks) and start following people based on keyword
So far you have a twitter account with autofollow/unfollow and keyword follow.
Now, the next part is the "magic":
5. Sign up for a Yahoo pipes account
6. Configure a yahoo pipe to pull in feeds/data/anything and output it as RSS
7. Run the pipe and copy the RSS-url
8. Get a twitterfeed-account and have your pipe-rss-feed published to your twitter account
Ok, so now you've got a twitter account running on autopilot. You can use basically any kind of input as a source to the yahoo pipes. blogsearch.google.com, twitters search, your favorite blogs, your own blog (!)... you can even do a search on #quotes and have that filtered and retweeted. Oh yeah, automatic retweeting is also done using the pipes.
Disclaimer: Although I've got a nice ROI on my time invested in my twitter network, I would say that you wont get rich by setting up accounts like this.
Ok... don't forget what I said about voodoo.
PS. If one of the points 1-8 doesn't make sense to you, don't worry. You're not alone and I can feel your pain. Please don't invest to much time in learning this if you don't get it right on the first try. You'll just be disappointed. That said, it's pretty fun to drive traffic from 70,000+ followers...
PS2. If you found this information useful, please thank me, I love "thank you's"
