How To Use Twitter To Generate 75 Leads In 2 Minutes

April 9, 2009

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’ve probably heard of a little social media phenomenon called Twitter.

Twitter is quickly becoming the most popular social networking site in existence… With over 6 million users and counting, including numerous celebrities and even President Obama…

Twitter is undoubtedly THE HOT PLACE TO BE online.

You can get ‘real time’ data on literally ANYTHING happening in our world today and interact with millions of people LIVE.

I first heard about Twitter months back, but I didn’t jump on the bandwagon right away… I guess I just didn’t see how utterly powerful this site really is until very recently.

But now, Twitter is top of my social media priority list icon smile How To Use Twitter To Generate 75 Leads In 2 Minutes

Check out my newly renovated Twitter page:

http://www.twitter.com/katiefreiling

So recently, a friend and colleague of mine was able to generate over 75 leads for his business just by sending out 1 tweet to his list of over 15,000 dedicated followers.

Do you really grasp how insane that is?!

75 leads in less than 2 minutes for FREE. It would cost you over $375 to get the same amount of leads with Google Adwords… and it would take much much longer.

Check out his Twitter page here:

If you’re looking to create some serious wealth online and build your own list of dedicated followers, Twitter is a
MUST.

So here’s a Step by Step Guide to True and Utter Twitter Domination:

—————

1. Go to http://www.twitter.com to create an account if you haven’t already done so. Be creative with your bio and make sure to include your website link (A blog link is preferred).

2. Set up a professional Twitter background with free tools like http://www.twitbacks.com or http://www.mytweetspace.com.

3. Go to http://www.tweetlater.com to set up a free account with this awesome Twitter tool. This will allow you to send automated welcome messages to new followers and create settings that will automatically follow those who follow you or ‘unfollow’ those who do not follow you.

4. Go to http://www.livelybrowser.com to purchase the Twitter Friend Adder for $50. This is optional, but highly recommended. You can automatically add Twitter friends with this simple and easy tool. If you’re on a budget, just add friends manually by finding others in your same niche.

5. Here are some great tools to use to help you find other like-minded people to network with:

http://www.twellow.com
http://search.twitter.com

http://www.twollo.com

6. You can manually unfollow those who don’t follow you with this free tool: http://dossy.org/twitter/karma (If you buy the Twitter Friend Adder, this feature is included).

7. Find good content to share with others. Do not spam your link… Twitter success is dependent on your ability to share valuable content and information with your network. Share anything:

*Enlightening
*Educational
*Entertaining

8. You can share your own videos, quotes, or blog posts or re-syndicate content that you like from other people. http://www.digg.com and http://www.popurls.com are great places to find good content.

9. It’s not enough to just add new friends, you must actually INTERACT with them. Use the ‘direct message’ and @reply features to interact personally with your new friends.

10. Here are some other great Twitter tools:

http://www.tweetdeck
http://www.twitpic.com

http://www.bubbletweet.com

—————-

So there you have it! This is a brief step by step guide to Twitter success. There are many other Twitter tools out there you can use, but this list is what I consider to be of ‘Twittermost’ importance!

Like you, i’ve also heard about Twitter months ago but didn’t want to get into yet again another social networking site. Thanks again for the Twitter tips — haven’t gotten around to delving into twitter but will resort back to those links you’ve mentioned. It’s always a good thing to connect with like-minded people.

Warmly,

Michelle

Hello Katie, I love your blog! The work you have done is great and it only shows how great leader you are. Every bit of your blog says you are a leader. So congratulations on all your work. I will be following you on twitter.

Also, I wanted to ask if you could tell me where I can find the widgets you have on your sidebar, at least the one to contact you on twitter, facebook, youtube and digg.

Thank you for your hard work. ;) Impressive blog!

Hey Melissa, I used the Fresh News theme with Woo Themes… And then I had a programmer add the social media badges, so I’m not sure which plugin he used :) I love your blog! You and I seem to be on the same page! Looking forward to getting to know you better…

Hi Katie,
I am really impressed by you. Your videos make it all seem so easy. I go to do the things you say and I get lost. I marvel and go back to your video and try again. I thought I was a fast learner but I am finding out I have blind spots. It’s all good!
I love your attitude and totally agree with the ideals of this sort of marketing. So much better for all concerned. Changing the way the world does business. Keep up the great work!!

Hi Katie,
Here is a great tool for following and unfollowing that works great.

Just a useful tool if you are watching your budget.
Another great feature is Smart Tweets

I make no moey off this, I just like the tool.

Katie, I love the synopsis of getting started, successfully, with Twitter. The thing I loved most about this post was where you said adding friends is not enough, you must interact with your new friends.

Great post!

I was just going through the latest twitters and found your remark. I surely can use the spinal excercises. I will add them to my Tao excercises, which are also great. Thanks for publishing the note.

GREAT info you have here for new Twitter users. I’ve been on Ttwitter for a while but really enjoying using it now that I use TweetDeck. TD makes it so much easier to follow and reply and keep up with conversations.

I really liked your posting about this, and I’ve seen a few more like it recently – the best part about yours is, it’s very informative and useful and full of good information without a bunch of usless rants and BS!

I’ll be sure to give this URL to some friends

Thanks Again

Those are some solid twitter tips!

I recently traded tweetdeck.com in for hootsuit.com which allows me starts tracking, a limited scheduled tweet feature, runs in a browser and uses less PC resources. I miss the little shorten this post button, but that’s really about it!

I agree with the other poster that recommended tweetspinner.com, although I like it so well I became an affiliate. It handles all my auto follow-backs, all my auto-unfollow-thoses-that-dont-follow-me, tweet scheduling although not as comprehensive as soocialoomph/tweetlater, mimic following, to follower specific friends, keyword follow, follow scheduiling, yada yada! I’m sure you get the drift. Now that soocialoomph relies on ping.fm to talk to twitter, its really a paid service for scheduling, and while tweetspinner isnt as comprehensive, its also about half the cost. Useful for those like me on a budget!

Thanks Katie!

To bring in more followers on twitter, you must have fresh content such as helpful tips, and tweets videos and other items of interest to your followers. By giving updated posts, you will have more people willing to take a look at your tweets. If you don’t update and have new content, you have the risk of getting unfollowed

Two amazing Twitter tools that are FREE are Tweepml.org which basically allows you to find and follow lists at a rapid pace etc. and Tweepi.com which allows you to unfollow and follow back at a faster than usual pace etc. I also use Tweet Adder for some automation though. Thanks for the tips Katie and great blog :)

Great post. I bet it takes me a few days to put this into practice. One of the things I love about your blog is how you are hitting so many different topics. It’s easy to let it all kind of overload you… but thanks to being a part of the unified tribe, I have those core videos that help me keep on task focusing on one piece at a time.

Thanks so much for everything!

good stuff. Do you have an RSS feed? And also will it be cool if I added in your feed to a site of mine? I have a blog which draws content from RSS feeds via a number of websites and I’d like to add yours, the majority of folks do not mind considering I link back and everything but I like to get authorization first. Anyway let me know if you could, thanks.

Thanks you so much Katie. I was looking for ways to use Twitter for my business. I knew that Twitter was really more that it seems even for a experience internet marketer so I am very grateful.

Great Post Katie!
