    Define "good." 100 followers? 1000? 10,000?

    My opinion, I've been using Twitter almost from it's inception and I have found no secrets. Follow people, ask for followers on your site and in emails, and "make good tweets." You'll eventually get some traffic from it.

    As far as FB, I don't use it cause I'm too busy building my farm. LOL.

      Need a neighbor?

      You need to be actually social to do well on the social networks.

      Good example, Farmville. I gain some new people regularly on FB now as they want to be my farmville neighbors. I could also lose them quickly if I started spamming affiliate links all over my wall.

      You have to have a common interest, and depending on what that is you need to have some communication.

    Hey Oleg,

    It is not about getting too many followers in your Facebook or Twitter account. Think about building relationships instead. The more people you can be friends with, the more people will support your online goals.

    There is the word 'social' in social media for a reason. You have to talk and be authentic with the people that follow you. With that, I don't think you will need any more rules to follow.

    Well there is no secret just provide good info and get one of those twitter or fb bots. People do not like this because if you do not use it carefully your account will be banned. Although its free to get an accountant and make lots of accountants. If I were starting over I would get them.

      Where can I get a free accountant?

      lol

      Making multiple FB accounts is against their TOS - so if you are serious about your business I would not take the advice of the poster above.

    Hi,
    In order for you to have followers and friends, you may start adding people or facebook/twitter members. Then It is not just by following then or following you. You have to build good relationship with them. You can have as many followers as you want but it would depend on how you make your tweets and statues to makes them interested.

    Maybe try creating a facebook page then add more people, make yourself known to your friends then create a facebook fan page.

    The best thing indeed for me is the relationship I build and then they actually commend the value that I give to them and be able to help promote my products as well. It's way easier too to build relationships first because from there, it begins a continual process of turning them as either buyers or affiliates. How good is that?

    Hey...I'm getting a 10 or 15:3 or 5 ratio on twitter. Ten to Fifteen tweets gaining three to five followers. Is that a bad ratio? And just how may tweets does it take to reach a thousand followers? Just a rough estimate. I was just making plans on how to deal with twitter when I saw this thread so might as well ask the question.

    automate twitter with rss feeds and links to your sites.

    it works everytime. and if it doesnt work than open lots of accounts.

    If you are serious about building a list on Twitter or Facebook, build them by searching for terms that relate to your niche or interest, and actually communicate with people that you find. Build it naturally if you want a good list, build it with a bot if you like the spammy approach. There is software that can help you friend people with the interests you are seeking, but be careful, you can get banned easily and the results are not good anyway. I have some short training videos for Twitter and Facebook friending. If you want, message me.

    Most of all, give value.
