Who wants to be a Twitter Rockstar? Who’s up for a Challenge? Let’s Challenge ourselves to grow our Twitter followers together!
For those of you that know me, know that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE twitter! I have become a Twitter Junkie over the past year. I have found that Twitter has really helped my business grow & it shows no signs of slowing down. Twitter has allowed me to connect with people within the same industry as myself. As well as connect with prospects looking for my Web & Graphic Design services. Twitter is an amazing tool that can help you grow your business – if you are willing to take the time and learn the ropes.
When I wrote my first post on ‘How to get Twitter Followers‘, I was just getting my feet wet & was clueless to the power this social media marketing platform had. Today, I am happy to report that I now have 1699 followers & averaging 7 new followers per day.
Since starting my Twitter Challenge, my website stats have almost tripled. As a result, my business has increased greatly. I have landed many new clients (and developed some amazing networking relationships) over the past few weeks & I am one happy camper!!

That brings me to my next Twitter Challenge – I also invite you to join me!
I ran across this article the other day: HOW TO BECOME A TWITTER NINJA IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES A DAY & was intrigued. This article claims that he is adding 73 new followers per day & is re-tweeted 260 times per day & is spending less than thirty minutes a day on Twitter. WOW…I am impressed!
I am going to take this recipe (and tweak it a tiny bit) for Twitter Success & implement it into my business. Below are the ingredients:
Sign Up (these are free)
- 6:00 AM: Post links to you current blog post using Buffer’s “Post Now” function.
- 6:01 AM: Schedule another promotional tweet (of the same post) for 11:20 a.m. using HootSuite.
- 6:02 AM: Scan your “streams” (i.e., columns) in HootSuite for messages, mentions, and interesting tweets that might have been posted overnight. Reply or retweet as appropriate.
- 6:10 AM: Create tweets with links to interesting news and blog posts. Once I have completed the previous task, I begin reading the days news and blog posts. I am looking for articles to share with my followers. I use Google Reader for this. Only scan & look for headlines that catch your interest. If so, read and then schedule a tweet about the article. I like to use Buffer for this.
- REPEAT TOMORROW!
Scheduling Note: to the right is a screenshot of my Buffer schedule. You can set it for times that work best for you. I try to send 10 articles daily.
