If you have a Twitter account and you are looking for more followers, listen up! I want to share with you how I grew my follower list to 5403 in a relatively short period of time.
First of all, I want you to know that I have been a full-time affiliate marketer since 1999, and after writing the Affiliate Marketers Handbook back in 2002, I became known as a top producer in the internet marketing field.
Are You Unsure of Twitter Like I Was?
That’s all well and good, but can you believe that I was very unsure about this thing called Twitter? I didn’t have a clue of what to do with it and just didn’t see how it fit into the big picture of internet marketing.
I knew that everyone was saying, “Gotta get a big following” and they implied someone was a nobody until they did.
I knew I didn’t want to grow my Twitter list with some of the questionable software that is out there to do that.
These Twitter Strategies Work No Matter What
Well, if you are pounding the pavement selling Hillsdale bar stools, truck bed liners, or chiropractic services, you are probably just like I was.
And I gotta tell you this. All the time I was thinking about how to increase Twitter followers, I was also thinking to myself, “How am I going to manage all those followers?”
If I went through all the work to create a following, how was I going to manage them?

3 FREE Strategies on How To Get More Twitter Followers
But on to the real things I want to tell you. I have 3 strategies for you to grow your Twitter following for free. Get ready for them. You are going to be so thankful you saw my article today and I believe you are going to remember this day for the rest of your life.
You’ll see how these strategies are EASY. You’ll kick yourself, wondering why you didn’t think of them before.
1. Thank You Pages = New Twitter Followers
Remember this one forever. In fact, take this strategy to heart and do this one TODAY.
Here’s what you’re going to do:
- Pick a website that you have.
- Open the thank you page in your web-page editing software program.
- This is the page that you redirect subscribers to after the opt-in page to your newsletter.
- Now on that page, you’ll notice that it’s pretty empty, right? Well, let’s make use of some of the white space. Add an invitation to your latest subscribers on this page – for following you on Twitter.
- Don’t forget to give them a benefit of following your directions.
- Upload the page back up to your website.
See how easy that is? You do realize that no matter what you are selling, this will work 100% of the time?
2. Get on the Guest Writer Circuit
Just about everyone needs guest writers for their site. And that’s where you come in. Wouldn’t you love to be in front of thousands of new people every week without having to do any suitcase packing?
This is where guest writing comes in. You can easily contact a few other website owners each week and ask them if you can provide an article for their readers. Here are a few ideas:
- Myths about _____
- Tips about _____ that save time
- Money making strategies about _____
- How to do ______
And here’s the clincher: they won’t follow you on Twitter unless you ask them. So at the end of the article in the bio section, ask! Don’t be shy. Tell them why it’s a good idea for them to follow you.
Now you know how it is in Internet Marketing. We get bombarded with good ideas all the time. The success comes when you initiate. So quick, who are a few places you can contact right now for being a guest writer? Take the challenge and start writing.
3. Be a Syndicated Newspaper Owner
For this last strategy, you don’t have to go through all the things that other online newspaper owners have to go through. You can do it with the push of a bunch of buttons.
Check this out right now: Go to http://paper.li/JamesMartell/1308523225 and view my paper called The Guest Blogging Daily. It’s easy to set-up and very powerful.
Here’s the procedure:
- Go to www.paper.li
- Choose your keyword, one of many different beautiful styles, etc.
- The articles will be selected based on your keyword.
- Publish it to Twitter daily.
It’s push button technology at its best. Set it up and spend no time trying to newspaper ads to cover some huge investment cost.
But here’s the beauty of it all: the contributing authors are automatically tweeted when each new newspaper is published. They are very often thrilled when they see that their article is being featured and many I have found retweet it to their followers. And that’s how your Twitter numbers rise and rise and rise.
I have also found that the contributing author also becomes a follower.
Why wouldn’t anyone want to do this? It’s so easy that an 8-year-old could do it. So my challenge to you is to get this going. Do it this today and don’t postpone it.
