Why I Unfollowed 37,752 People on Twitter

Up until last week, I followed back anyone who followed me on Twitter. Using Social Oomph, it was done all automatically without me having to do anything. If you followed me, minutes later I would automatically follow you back.

I started doing this for two main reasons. First, I wanted to follow back everyone as a courtesy. If you made the effort of following me and listening to what I had to say, then I considered following you back was the polite thing to do.

Second, I wanted to follow back everyone because I assumed that it would get me more followers (a lot of people are following you hoping that you will follow them back, thus increasing their followers count).

After a short while this became completely unmanageable. There was only one solution: mass unfollow everyone and start from scratch! (more…)

The Adwords Debacle and How Being On Twitter Saved My Butt

A couple of months ago I wrote about how Google killed my online business, taking a big chunk out of my monthly revenues, but today I have good news. I have very good news! My Adwords account has been reinstated!

For those of you who didn’t read my previous article about my experience being kicked out of Adwords, let me recap for you. Basically Google suspended my Adwords account because it was violating their landing page guidelines policy. After many email exchanges, Google pretty much told me to F off and that they were done with me, banning my account. Forever. (more…)

7 Tips to Be Presentable On Twitter

cocktails

Being on Twitter is like being at a cocktail party. Would you go to a cocktail party wearing shorts, a t-shirt and sandals? Of course not. You want to look presentable on Twitter. Even better, you want to look good and sexy.

While Twitter is not a beauty pageant, having a nice and attracting profile page will draw interest and trust in you, ultimately helping you build a follower base. Just like a beautiful woman attracts all the guys and is the talk of all women at a party, we’re going to do just that with you Twitter page. (more…)

Twitter: It’s About Now!

right here right now

I sometimes look at how people interact with Twitter and it surprises me to see how few understand take advantage of the “instantaneousity” of this tool.

Let’s take my fiancée for example. She rarely goes on Twitter and when she does she usually spends 5 minutes scrolling down to see what the 5 people she follows were saying up to 10 days ago. That is not the way Twitter was intended to be.

Twitter is a tool designed to capture the present, not the past.

Don’t bother looking back at what happened on Twitter hours or days ago because it is obsolete. Focus on what’s happening now!

Of course one can argue that you can do whatever you want on Twitter and that is your right to look at what people were tweeting last month. Sure it is, but how relevant is this information now?

How do you use Twitter?

1001 Twitter users who follow back

photos-twitter-followers

People like to pretend they don’t care how many followers they have, but more often than not, they’re not being completely honest. We all care how many Twitter followers we have. It’s an ego thing.

If you got to this page, it’s because you do care and you’re most likely trying to increase your amount of followers, and I want you to know it’s ok, as long as you understand Twitter isn’t so much about how many followers you have, but rather how much reach you have. You can have 1 million followers but it doesn’t do you any good if these people don’t interact with you or your tweets in any way.

This being said, adding these 1001 Twitter users who will follow back will not do you much good because they are not genuinely interested in your tweets. They mostly want to collect massive amounts of followers. Some of them might auto-follow back, some of might take a while to follow you.

How to get more Twitter followers? Start following these people!

Do You Want to Be Added to This List?

Because I’m receiving so many emails asking me to add people to this list, I decided to make this a paid service. If you want to be added to this list, PayPal me $10 and I will add you to the top of the list. This list gets hundreds of visits a day so if you want to get a bunch of new followers for cheap, that is your best bet!

Improve Your Personal Branding On Twitter

twitter branding In 140 characters or less, Twitter allows you to “market yourself” as a social personality who is approachable, knowledgeable, influential and connected. Chris Brogan says “Twitter is an appetizer for who you really are and what you really represent.” This being said, everything you do on Twitter can have a positive or negative impact on the image you project. In this article, I will highlight the key elements to maximizing your personal branding on Twitter. (more…)

Why You Should Use Your Real Name On Twitter

I was inspired to write this post by my friend Debi and the brand new Twitter account she created. Debi is the Director of Marketing at CrownAir Aviation, an aircraft maintenance company out of California and when she learned about Twitter, she thought it would be a great new social networking tool for her company so she started using the @crownair username.
