If you haven’t heard about Twitter then you’ve probably been hiding under a rock.
Twitter is a micro-blogging service that allows you to post blog entries that contain only 140 characters or less.
According to Alexa, Twitter is the 12th most visited website in the world! That’s a LOT of traffic.
Twitter is fun to play around with, but did you know it can also be used to generate a lot of leads and build a substantial email list?
STEP 1 – Create a special report that people in your niche would want to read.
(Hint: You can go to EzineArticles.com and combine articles to create your
special report in just a few minutes.)
STEP 2 – Create a landing page that offers your special report.
STEP 3 – Create an account at Twitter.com. In your account, give your landing page URL as your website.
STEP 4 – Register for the no-cost service at www.Socialoomph.com. In the
auto-DM function, enter in a call to action and your landing page URL.
STEP 5 – Make an exhaustive list of all the influential people in your niche.
STEP 6 – Start following and interacting with people on the list you created.
STEP 7 – Start following and interacting with some of the people that are following the people on your list.
That’s pretty much it.
But Here’s the Key…
I will usually only follow people that are interacting with me. You know, the ones that comment on your posts or that retweet your posts.
So the golden key is to INTERACT with people.
Interact as much as you possibly can and you’ll start seeing people follow you. The more you interact, the more people will follow you, the more people will sign up on your email list.
I’ve Known People that Have…
…built massive followings on Twitter and have transferred a lot of their
followers onto their email list.
For instance, Scott Stratten, a friend of mine created a report called, “If I
Went Back…” and then offered it to his twitter followers (all 49,778 of them).
Thousands subscribed to his email list.
Here’s his landing page (shhh, don’t tell him I showed you his page).
That’s the way you do it.
You get on twitter, start following people in your niche, start interacting with them (and their followers) and offer them something to sign up for.
