$10k per DAY on Twitter... come on.

117 replies
Don't know if you've seen this but theres a guy on Twitter who's claiming they're doing 10k a day through Twitter traffic alone...


I know all the tricks and whether it's gross, net, whether it happened one day or many days, or what... I just can't believe it.

Even if you were auto adding so many people per day that the traffic volume that clicked through to your link was high enough to generate that much commission... (it's supposedly from affiliate marketing) you'd surely be adding so many ppl that Twitter would boot you.

This might be the greatest level of hyperbole I've seen in an online marketing claim, and while I'm open to learning how it might be true, I'm frustrated to think that it's not and to think what things like this do to the online marketing industry.

What do u think?

    Yup. I'm inclined to go with your opinion on this.

    If it looks like a duck...

    This is the one bug I can't seem to get around with Twitter--how to monetize it.

    And, BTW, it's not 'just me' because the Twitter team just got a new tranche of VC money and they have yet to turn a profit and stated that they can't figure out how to monetize their own thingie.

      Ha!

      Man.....Twitter better hire him since they can't even make money
      with their own platform.

      Can say a lot of things ....but that does not mean sh**
      without proof.

      Doesn't seem to add up for me either. If it's affliate marketing then he must be selling $15K a day on average net which is $95K a week! That's must make him one of the affliate earners online. And working on average's again he must make like 2000 sales a week and add 80,000+ new tweets per week!
      Maybe I'm missing the golden goose with twitter here!!

        It's probably hyperbole...

        I don't doubt that he's making $10,000 a day. I just don't believe that he's doing it with Twitter.

        However, I don't think that it would be impossible to pull off. But, then again, what's really impossible.

      I think what I've come to realize about this is that it's not something to monetize directly. It's a much better platform for building your brand, connecting with customers and driving traffic to something that can be monetized. And when it's used in that way, it can be powerful.

        thezone, when you get a chance, take another look at the second video and do some research on the things he's talking about. It's not all Twitter, it's more comprehensive. I think the first video we saw gave some people the impression that he was making money just by posting on Twitter, but there is sooo much more to it! He seems like a smart and hard-working guy and I'm sure his success is well earned. And yes, if he can do, we can do it! But I still don't believe there is one single magic bullet that will bring us riches, things have to be used in concert.

          Research done...

          I went to his youtube page staffinseconds....looked at his video views (for the video embedded in his blog)...he embedded it in his blog (theoutsourcingking.com) and got 6 views . He claims 300-400 visitors a day to his blog.....and gets 6 views total on an embedded video...the metrics don't jive with the claims....now what do you want me to research? I checked all his sites and followed his links. He now appears to stream the video he has from his own site...no more nasty questions about the lousy views (not that it matters, he stopped updating his blog site on April 3). I would get into the alexa and compete rankings (of an outsourcing website that caters to IM'ers who usually sport compete and alexa toolbars, and would artificially inflate his traffic source), but even in that regards, there is no indication of large amounts of traffic. And I will guarantee you those numbers are already grossly overstated just by the type of traffic.

          Anything else?

    Well, as of this writing, the guy's got 42K followers!

    Could he get 25 cents a day from each of them?

    What if the poor schmuck was hyperbolizing by 10?

    That's still $1000 per day. That would only take 2 1/2 cents a day each follower.

    I don't know.

          Well, I wonder how many accounts he has.


          Now....could i believe that he could have a $10k Day with
          that many followers if he were promoting a $2,000 product.

          He would only need to sell 5 units.

              Right, I thought as much too. And if it's real, I'm confident that's what's up. But then I thought if you were making that many accounts adding that many followers and all pushing the same link.. (which you'd have to to get the numbers to convert enough to sell that much volume)...

              Twitter kills accounts for far less than that.

              Rich


              Hey Rich...I am with ya....Do I believe this guy is producing these results
              daily...no way. Could be a bit of Hype in the Video by the Producer...well not a bit of hype....it is hype.

              And, it is mere speculation on my part.

              As Kyle pointed out...there could be various black hat techniques he is using but i would suspect that it will be short lived.

              @ Andrew.

              Even with his follower base being fragmented across multiple niches the shear number of click throughs with a well crafted tweet could possibly cross sell the niche....not to mention if he has a base who will RT for him (Re-tweet)

              And yes...that high ticket item would need to have some killer conversions.

              Just thinking about it leads me to believe it is possible....but not daily...then again I guess it could be done...but I would think that there would be more substantial evidence out there to support such a claim.

    The claims get bigger and bigger. I think most people would love just how to make an extra $50 to $100 per day on twitter. Most people would have a lot less stress with an extra $1,500 to $3,000 per month. Not everyone trying to make extra money is trying to buy a ferrari or a second home. Most would be happy to use the extra to pay their bills.

      Actually I read on John Chow's blog that he made around $300 in a day with twitter promotion. A little less through a blog post and a little more sending an email to his list.

      My conclusion is this, Chow is the real deal, not the hypermollah you can find around on the Internet.


      I'm not wasting any time when I cant see evidence of any $10K a days.

      That's how I --Rolll

      Glad to see an experience tweeter reply.

      I know right? if it's a product that he launched to his followers on twitter with which he had an outstanding relationship, I can see 10k in a day, that's not so far fetched.

      But 5-10k a day every day...

      I can see it being in the realm of possibility if he has some blackhat tools going on -- auto account creation/following/posting etc.

      Generate a few hundred (thousand?) accounts, each automatically generating followers, each automatically posting X times per day.

      But I can't see it happening from a single personal account.

      And while it might work for him right now, you can bet by the time he starts selling his "system" that the doors of opportunity will be closed and he'll be onto the next thing while all the suckers waste time trying to make a few bucks a day.

    I don't know if it's true, but the math seems feesible. If he's selling a $69 product, then even if he's only converting at 1%, then he'd only need 14,400 unique viewers to see the product. As fast as twitter is expanding now days, I don't see why that couldn't be possible.

        Its actually possible. However, not by himself. By leveraging on others. He may earn 10k per day, but it doesn't necessarily means he is earning that amount for just himself. He probably owns a company that has about 60~70 employees assisting him with his twitter business. With so many free twitter scripts and sites that offer easier access to the system, it is definitely possible provided you have a strong team to back you up.

        Check this system out:

        1) I offer you the deal within the tweet.

        2) Within the deal you got to sign up with a couple of twitter-friendly sites

        3) Those sites would lend you their "free" services by forcing a tweet through your account.

        4) Others get to know about it through their accounts.

        5) Wash, rinse, and repeat by automation.


        And this is only one of the methods that can be used to proliferate earnings. Let's say he has a team of 50 tweeters, each of the tweeter promotes to 900~1000 of his/her following, and lets say about 350~400 of them go through the links, and 90% signed up for the free stuffs. So the chain re-occurs through the list of followers by those who signed up. Using a rough gauge, there will be probably be about 500 people (including people through the residual effect) That signed up for the free services. In turn, those 500 people will be constantly marketed to with this guy's tweeter-based affiliate program, lets say about 50 signed up, wash, rinse, repeat the abovementioned.

        I am guessing he will have to take at least 2~3 months to reach this height, and probably a couple of months more before his empire becomes stagnant and a thing of the past.

        Yes, he is earning 10k per day, however, he probably will only pocket like $500 or less a day. (Which is still quite an significant amount.)

        Good luck and have fun earning!

    I don't know why people get so dragged in by this sort of BS - There's a very good chance he's not making $10k a day, but what difference does it make ?

    Surely no-one's naive enough to think that it's only possible once you see proof of someone else doing it?

    There's a lot of BS marketing hype about Twitter from people who like to be seen as experts. There's no secret to Twitter and you can use it in many of the same ways as a lot of other things around.

      That's not actually true.

      well maybe on the 101 version - in Body Language 102 you learn that people vary and that some people go left where others go right and you need to calibrate each person to know.

    Here is the thing:

    Some people have claimed they have made $10,000 from Twitter.

    What they don't say is they made $10,000 from the CONTACTS on Twitter. A little direct message here and there, a JV later, and maybe they did indeed make that amount.

    But that is tantamount to saying someone made $10,000 from MSN, AIM and Gmail Chat because they chatted up their contacts there too.

    Hyperbole, indeed.

    If you want to look at Twitter coldly, it's just the latest in-thing, because it's new and fresh.

    Doesn't necessarily mean it's a money machine.

    Does Twitter make money?

      I also know it's not from contacts or at least that's not what they're saying it's from.

      In other material he's said it's from affiliate marketing, and it's every day, so not a JV deal or consulting gig kind of thing.

      At the end of the day I know it's not what it appears, and I know people always inflate their income stats and that ultimately, it doesn't matter, we don't have to buy it, we don't have to fall for it.

      The thing is, WE all say that, we know better, we're experienced.

      What I really object to, is what this does to the industry as a whole (even if it has always happened), by creating a bunch of people (newer than us, who don't know better yet) who think things like this are possible, and should be aimed for.

      It hurts everyone who teaches online marketing. Every teacher who's ever gotten a weird refund request, had people wonder why "it didn't work for them" when they hadn't given it a chance, had a chargeback, or wasted their time trying to help people who thought they should be making thousands in days. It effects you.

      This kind of thing is why that happens, and that's what upsets me.

      Exactly.

      If we looked at it like that - even I could say I made $10k from Twitter because I've made that from the people and business I've found via Twitter.

      Mark Joyner offered to endorse my upcoming physical book after I met him because of Twitter - There's a lot of ways to be able to make a hyped-up statement to try and impress people, but it's not doing them any favours by manipulating the facts to fit that type of cause. But then, I'm guessing we've accepted that this isn't all about helping others anyway.

      Selling shovels and selling 'the sizzle' is what many people consider to be marketing.

      But that is tantamount to saying someone made $10,000 from MSN, AIM and Gmail Chat because they chatted up their contacts there too.

      Hyperbole, indeed.

      If you want to look at Twitter coldly, it's just the latest in-thing, because it's new and fresh.

      Doesn't necessarily mean it's a money machine.

          i saw maria andros post that he's made over $180,000 from twitter so far. and it did make me think that if that's true, he's made an average of over $4000 per follower. Which seems a bit high.

          Unless a TON of people are clicking through his links but not following him? again, possible but doesn't seem likely.

    Hi,

    I guess he makes 10K on Facebook, Hubpages and Myspace as well. The guy is a freaking genius!

    But seriously, if he is really making that kind of money, it must be via CPA. And still: that would be a lot of tweets per action...

    It would seem that for most of you, the 10K hit you right in the face and made your gut swirl. Even more so, it's blinded you from the 'back end' system this guy has in place. The guy interviewing him said he's making 10K from Twitter, but he's wrong. The guy is making 10k (or whatever it may be) from his Twitter traffic.

    With as many followers as he has, he's obviously generated interest and built relationships (possibly superficial) to sell his concept. It's pretty simple really, he's used twitter to capture the attention of a certain market, used it as a medium to drive traffic to his site and to possibly communicate with his prospects.

    How this guy drives sales on his site can be from a number of possible ways; affiliate links, CPA's, JV's, or his own product. Who knows. Apparently there's a full interview of him over at the social media traffic blue print blog.

    Let me start by saying that his claim is probably false.

    Now, the maths.

    Rather than one account earning $10,000 per day, it wouldn't be hard to create software which autocreates accounts. Imagining he had 1,000 accounts and then used another piece of automated software to get followers, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that he could make $10 per day per account (some would be more successful than others).

    However, I still believe he's lying!

      Hi guys,

      I can see this post has gathered a lot of interest!!! Remember things aren't always what they seem to be. I don't know if i believe the 10 thousand a day figure but in the video he was portrayed as a newbie....at least thats the impression i got. If you guys are curious go to you tube and punch in grungey10. I think this is the same guy who was in the video for sure. grungey10 is his video channel. He definitely mastered You Tube in gaining video views and had to build up quite a list in the dating niche!!! One of his videos has over 30,000 views. He's very good in front of a camera! His You Tube channel is dated back to Sept of 2007. I'm sure with twitter he hit the ground running right from the get go. Who knows how many different niches he's in!! Didn't he mention something about selling a service in the video...thats all i'm saying....use your imagination!!! lol. I give him credit he's really leveraging the social media thing no doubt.

        Ok. I am going to bust in here and say that yes it is more than possible. From a guy who is generating 15+ leads a day from Twitter, I know that the endless possibilites with Twitter is so powerful. What do you say. Nothing. Twitter is the KING of social media and marketing right now.

        I am just now getting hardcore in the Twitter marketing bandwagon, (i have been a twitter user for nearly a year.) But when you apply numerous tools to twitter with the right targeting methods. Twitter is by far the most powerful marketing source on the internet.....well next to PPC with Google and Yahoo.

        I am only running 5 twitte accounts with 10k+ and they are producing me around 15-30 leads per day...that equates to around $60 per day in upfront sales besides the MLM sponsorship and the back end affiliate sales.

        I would Say that Twitter is actually generating me around $160-$175 a day. To say the least.

        I have only been really pushing the powerhouse marketing on Twitter(not my main account) for about 6 days so the data is really irrelevent but shares the future of my success.

        Twitter gives the ability for the average marketer to truly produce massive numbers in a day if you play the cards right

        Remember when Myspace marketing first came to play. People were making 10k a day easy with it....not they don't make $100 day with the same myspace marketing plan. Twitter is the place to be.

        And when someone finds out how to automate Facebook....The profits are going to soar even higher.

      I have no idea if this guy makes that much or not, but if he is sending traffic from Twitter to his blog and they are signing up for his list then he is doing the same thing everyone else is doing. Other people may be getting their traffic from PPC, search engines or article marketing and some of them may be making 10,000 a day, he just chooses to get his traffic from Twitter.

      So I say if other people are making 10,000 a day, but getting their traffic from other places then it is possible for him to make that much getting his traffic from Twitter. I am not saying he does make that much, but I can see how it would be possible. All I can say for sure is I don't make that much. :-)

      That's not bad, but you realize that is under 500M per month. When your daughter looks you in the eyes, and says; "Daddy, can we buy Canada", and you have to say no...how does that make you feel?

      I remember how my little girls eye's lighted up the day I cam home and told her; "Daddy just bought Canada" (a big chunk of change with the extended 3 year on site warranty).

      My six year old little girl, went on to say but Daddy, there are only 6 Billion people in the world and for you to take home "before taxes" (at which point I told her to watch her language...daddy doesn't like to hear words like "taxes"), that is about $150 every month for every person on earth.

      I told her, Daddy is a social media guru

      She then says, "Butt daddy, you only get a few hundred views per month"

      I then kicked her sorry *** out of the house. I told her with no reservation. Daddy's time is valuable and he doesn't deal with skeptics, when you buy Daddy's ebook "6 easy Steps to 13 figures per month" (only 19.95), you will understand how Daddy does it, and you can come back home.

      I am a loving Daddy, but we have to nip this type of negativity in the bud. First they start asking doubting questions, then they start asking for proof, and where does it end? Daddy don't play dat!

        Exactly...if you have multiple accounts, others have multiple accounts, so the number of unique individuals are extremely limited. Meaning that if someone comes across your 400 accounts (or others multiple accounts) it equates to one opportunity (if it equates to anything at all). As I stated many times before the numbers are gamed (and heavily gamed) and you just confirmed it yourself. It isn't rocket engineering!

    For all you doubters out there. This might be very possible.

    Apperantly this guy is in the "how to pick up women" niche. These ebooks has about 30-40 dollars in affiliate commission, because these people are not just desperate to pick up women. They are also desperate to teach their friends new skills, and show their surroundings that they can date awsome girls and pick up girls all the time.

    Convertionrate might be 4%. He needs to sell (if 30 bucks a book) 333 ebooks a day. This meens he needs 8333 visitors each day. A little many from only 47000 followers. Espesially since it is the same followers every day.

    However.

    The Pick up articsts sells other things also. They have 2000 dollar seminars. Selling 5 of these each day would be enough, so a seminar with 35 visitors each weekend would do the trick. This does not include the ebook sales. Many of the pick up artists do world tours showing their stuff. When two of them was in norway both the 2 largest newspapers had a huge article about them. These papers is read by 2-3.000.000 people. Unpossible to get 35 attendants to this seminar?

    They also sell seminars for other pick up artists.

    I assume he also use a free gift with an auto responder. This way you can get a lot of people on your list. This list is a desperate list, so you might assume that these guys will buy more books. Maybe one each month for many.

    And then you got the high ticket items, you got the cool pick up tricks, like magic tricks and nice suits or clothes.

    I do not know what this guy does, but it is not entirly unpossible to make this kind of money.

    I don't believe it. I use twitter very successfully in a few business ventures and I just don't see that sort of money happening. I'd need far more information about the strategy being used before I would even begin to believe someone was making that in a week.

    A bit of a tangent: The problem with the way some "gurus" are preaching about twitter's marketing potential is that they focus on the number of followers. Hogwash. It is unbelievably easy to get 50,000 followers. I could do it in an hour, spread over a week. But most of those eyes are pretty uninterested in what you have to say, and many of your followers are just going to be spammers or other marketers trying to boost their follower numbers too.

    Successfully marketing on twitter is not unlike advertising on google. When someone clicks on a google search result, it's because they went through the effort to look for information on that topic. This is targeted traffic. Likewise, you should only be focused on getting twitter followers who are interested in what you are selling. Ideally they should come to you. Mass, automated following is not only ineffective (unfocused, uninterested followers!), but it also gets in the way of you building a professional reputation and becoming a trustworthy and reliable twitter user who buyers in your niche will turn to.

    I haven't found a single passable info product on the way to successfully tap into the twitter market, and I've gone through a dozen or so (I've got something of an academic interest in the subject). The sad fact is, it takes knowledge and personality, not automated scripts and google alert news feed updates, to use twitter effectively.

      Exactly. Twitter is networking, and just like physical networking, there are people who act like jerks and don't make a cent, and there are people who create a huge following and make deals happen

      $10k in a day is certainly possible. "Twitter traffic" can convert. Sometimes very well. But to focus on the tool or the tactic is missing the point.

      Great points.

      You also have to see what intention is behind those who are stating that twitter is a viable source of traffic. In 99percent of the cases it's individuals selling a $Muliple K course ( or $20 ebook or other) on how twitter is a great source of free traffic.

      If you view the metrics of almost anyone, the amount of true followers appear to be 1/10th of 1 percent on average (with celebrities pulling off 1-3% follow through...based on viewable metrics).

      As you stated most "follower" numbers don't really "follow", and are just "presented" to prove a point of "guruosity" to lend credibility to the individual in question ebooks/courses...nothing more.

      I don't know very much about Twitter or IM, yet, but for a number of years now, studying lying behavior has been a hobby of mine. I watched the video a dozen times or so to establish a baseline, especially on the "control questions", so I could note the deviations. This gentleman is probably slightly inebriated and his "tells" are magnified as a result. I won't bore you with all the details, just the results of my analysis...

      1) He is telling the truth about his 10k day.
      2) He isn't making all of this money directly from Twitter, but is willing to play along with the interviewer and let us think he is. This is very uncomfortable for him and he is sending out distress signals.
      3) He is likely very successful, but not all from Twitter.
      4) The interviewer is the instigator.

        I think it could be true - don't know if it is.

        But if so, it would be more like "with Twitter" - not "on Twitter"

        Let me explain:

        Basically, he is self-employed (not an online business owner) working with Carbon Copy Pro which is a high ticket direct sales company that pays 1k-5k per sale.

        So basically you build relationships and interact with people on twitter and then eventually close them into your program. So he probably closed a certain amount that equaled 10k (again have no idea if this is even true)

        Personally, I do know a guy who did something similar with MySpace back in the day and he made a killing.

        It takes a certain type of person to make it work.

        Personally, this doesn't really interest me as I'd rather own a real online business that makes money automatically and isn't dependent on my constant direct involvement but some people find it valuable for various reasons.

        So yeah... that's how it could be done but again, it's definitely not making money "on twitter" and it's not consistent.

        It's basically just using Twitter as a platform to meet new people like a high end real estate agent "could" possibly meet someone who they end up selling a million dollar home to and earning a 30k commission. But I wouldn't call that making $30k a day on twitter.

        Twitter just provides the opportunity for them to meet new prospects for whatever it is they do.

    I think you're close to the mark, Lazfin.

    My impression from the video was he was being vague. Just looking at the site linked in his profile, he says he's making $5k-$10K from Twitter per day.

    From his picture, he does look sincere and comes across as credible. Also curious to see that that web site has not been updated since April 3, implying to me other Twitter accounts promoting other sites are more prominent now (or maybe were then).

    Interesting discussion here.

    Warmly,

    I watched the video a couple of times. The guy does seem fairly sincere, and to his credit he says "about 10,000."

    I never heard him claim to make 10k a day, and it does seem like the interviewer/reporter is indeed the instigator and probably is who created the title for the video.

    And, in my very humble opinion, he's not making that amount every day from Twitter...he may be driving enough traffic to various sites with various twit accounts to make 1/5 of that at best.

    Just my .02 worth.

    I think Twitter is freaking spam up.. there is nothing like the good old fashion engagement and conversation and limit to the people who is relevant to your niche and be personal. I guess, sooner or later, people will realize that. I would still prefer Facebook over Twitter.

      BS or not, believe it or not, I sure see a lot of limiting
      belief systems in this thread. My BS alarm goes off for a lot of
      claims, HOWEVER:

      What if I told you I could make $18 million in one day with a
      product launch? Would you believe it. "Impossible", you say?
      What if Frank Kern said the same thing? He did it, or was it $24
      million in one day (I heard both).

      I saw some great answers on how it could be done. Why not think
      along those lines instead of limiting yourself to "IMPOSSIBLE".

      What if it could be done. How would you do it? If not with
      Twitter, then with what? How could you make $10,000 a day. That
      is only $3.65 million in a year -- Frank did far more than that
      in one day.

        Hi Bob,

        I think you're missing the point - Of Course it IS possible, and there are many ways to cut and slice it, but the OP wasn't speculating about whether it was theoretically possible but whether the claims he's seen are actually marketing hype, spin or BS.

        It's easy to sit at home and speculate about how it might be possible - but that has no relationship to whether you or I, or anyone else can or will realistically achieve it.

        For example - I already have a focus for my business and although I do incorporate Twitter and have made money and got business from it - If you said I could make $XXXk if I spent 24 hours a day on Twitter - that wouldn't have any effect on my business. I have no wish to spend all of my time on Twitter or to detract from my current business activities, so it's irrelevant.

        So, speculating on how other people might do things, or what is theoretically possible might be fun, but it's not necessarily a good way to move your business forward, and whether someone else does it or not is irrelevant to your business.

        It's true that once people believe something is possible it makes it much more achievable (look at the 4 minute mile - it was impossible until it was done, and hundreds of runners have done it since).

        I've experienced this first hand too, so I appreciate the sentiment - but one of this forums real benefits is that while we can share what's working and inspire others behind us on the road, giving people a reality check when there's a lot of BS around can be just as useful.

        In this case - Yes you can make money using Twitter and there are probably people making obscene amounts in the same way as there are with every facet of online revenue, but what most people need is a reality check and practical, achievable examples that inspire but don't deceive.

        Andy

    Twitter could charge $1.00 - 2.99 per month for members to get more characters in their "tweets". The guy who is making $10,000/day is probably exaggerating but he got what he wanted . . . exposure. We are talking about him.. trying to find him. If he wasn't making that much, a lot of followers will be buying his exaggerated claims and he'll make a killing

    $10k per day or $10k yesterday? Quite impressive either way but certainly a difference between doing it one day and doing it every single day.

    Okay, here's a way to make $10k a day on Twitter.

    First, get a really high value domain name, like Shoes.com or USA.com

    Then, get some followers, preferably influential, rich people.

    Tell these people that its up for sale for $300k - cheap for a domain of the quality described above.

    Sell the domain, pocket $300k

    And hey..you just landed $10k a day. Now sell an ebook for $47 blabbering BS about Twitter. Your claim still holds.

    10k a day doesn't HAVE to mean 10k a day. It can be a product launch that got you 200k in one week, then sales tapered off to 2k a day - highly possible. You can then just push it as 10k a day.

    Going by this figure, I made 18k profit in 12 hours one time, but that was just a one off sale. I could've totally sold an ebook for $47 with that statistic.

    Frank did do 5 million in one day. That is true. (Told to me by two different sources, Bill Glazer is one of them.) He did it just last week. not 24 million. I also believe that is the current record. Lol. It is like the old 'telephone game'

      Hey...Just my 2 cents.

      I checked the guy out. I didn't join his Twitter, but viewed it and checked out his website.

      He has a lot of good video blogs with lots of valuable info. He admits to having a team, so his company probably made $10K, which is highly likely based on what I researched on the guy.

      To date, he has well over 60K followers on one of his Twitter accounts. He is supposedly got multiple accounts.

      This can be done via software like one that a Warrior is offering called Twadder. People regularly open 10 or more accounts and the Twadder or similar software follows people and then they follow you back. This is likely what he has done since the number of people he follows is almost identical to the number that is following him.

      So, anyway, let's say you have 10 accounts like most people using the software and have built it to about 40K followers (which is about where he was at when the video came out I believe).

      So that's about 400K+ followers. You shoot out a few personal tweets during the day automatically via TweetLater and then you also shoot out a link to a good free article with some Adsense, later you shoot out a CPA ad link, and maybe later an affiliate link for a product you think people following you would like.

      Say your average income from these offers was just about $10 (A couple of bucks from adsense, a few bucks from CPA, about $20 from the affiliate link.)

      You only need a very poor response of 0.25% to make $10,000 that day.

      Why couldn't this be done daily. It is a very low close rate, but the volume is what makes it possible.

      I will be implementing this myself once I find a good target market and a good supply of CPA and Affiliate products to offer.

      Some of you more experienced folks should try it.

      Like someone said earlier. You have to let go of the limiting beliefs.

      If you need more info on builing the Twitter following, search the forum for the Twadder product. There are a few great strategies given in the thread also for building the list quick.

    If he has 100 twitter account with 10k followers, it is impossible to make 10k a day.

    Not supporting him but just telling the fact that it is possible and logic to make 10k a day.

    Seems entirely viable if you look outside the basic paramaters some people are judging it on. I'm not saying it is true, I don't know this guy from Jack, but it's certainly not impossible.

    From what I could see he's only stating he generates leads from Twitter, not that his entire business model is tweeting, what about the back end folks ?

    He could be marketing via multiple Twitter accounts and generating traffic in multiple niches all the time building multiple niche opt ins and firing off quality content with links in for numerous products over an extended period.

    I can't see why $10k is even close to impossible.

    Whether this guy is actually doing it is entirely a different question, but would it be possible, of course.

    Yeah,

    They're at a mixer for an MLM company. I think he was referring to how much he was making with THAT mlm. So he gets a bunch of followers on twitter, sends them links to his mlm opt-in pages, then calls them up and closes them on a high-ticket "business" opportunity.

    Perfectly reasonable that he made 10k YESTERDAY. Every day, unlikely

    His websites don't even get any traffic... They spiked for 1 month (probably when he released this video) and then went back down to nothing.

    Secondly they said they were at some carbon copy pro event which is some mlm type thing - most of those type marketers love to hype crap up...

    Third, I don't even see him selling anything that great that would make him all of that money...

    And lastly if he was making that much each day you'd think he'd implement a 'viral tweet' system where his followers build his following for him... Obviously the only reason why he has that big following of 60k is because he followed 60k people... its a dud.
