OK...I'm addicted on twitter. I likely did what a lot of you have done: I signed up with twitter some months back...looked at it...and said.."Now what am I supposed to do with it?" And walked away.
But, then I sat in on a webinar, talking about social networking. About having 100,000 followers on twitter, and how twitter is used to 'introduce' social media account management your business, send helpful tips, and then move followers to wherever you want them to go.
So, I went back to twitter, got TweetAdder, and the proverbial lightbulb went off. After 1 week, I now have 1700 followers, and have set up a second account, specifically for local 'Tweeters'
TweetAdder automates almost everything you would want to do with twitter. As I am writing this article, TweetAdder has added 100 followers to my account, and is automatically sending my tweets that I set up last night.
There is a growing number of twitter programs that will do everything you could ever want on twiiter: But TweetAdder is the only one that I have found that will do all of that...automatically.
For example, there are programs to find people for you to follow. But they will only LIST those people; you have to go through and 'follow' them yourself. TweetAdder allows you to search for people to follow by tweets, their bio, location (zip code, city,state), or even following the followers of specific members. You choose how many you want to follow, click the mouse, and TweetAdder not only finds the people, but it automatically SIGNS YOU UP as a follower. You can set it and walk away.
You can use it to automate your tweets. Prepare your messages all at once, make about 20 of them. Load them into the 'Tweet" submitter, and minimize the program. Now, automatically, every 40-60 minutes, depending on the setting that YOU set, your 'tweets' go out.
TweetAdder keeps track of your 'Follows', and your 'Followers. Your 'Unfollows' are also automated. Select how many you want to unfollow, and TweetAdder takes care of it. Direct Messages can also be sent...to whatever class of followers you wish....'New followers first', 'Random followers', etc.
You can set everything up at once; getting new follows, following new follows, unfollowing, DMs, Tweets, and going to the 'Automation' page, and click...TweetAdder runs in the background.
There are various programs that will do all of these services, and most of them are free. TweetAdder is $55 for one account; up to five accounts can be handled for an additional $19. Why would you want extra accounts? I have a general account, which is centered on businesses and internet marketing; I have just started a second account, which will be centered on local tweeters, based on zip code. The affiliate program is great; 50%. Sell 2, and your program is free.
