Focus on turning a Twitter follower into a personal contact, who you can then communicate with by more traditional means. You will be more likely to make money through 100 personal contacts than 10,000 Twitter followers. Therefore, having gotten yourself a good number of Twitter followers (say, 100-500), you should spend more developing your relationships with those people than simply trying to boost your number of followers. The question is then – How can your turn your Twitter followers into personal contacts? The first thing that you should do is use HootSuite to help you manage your Twitter account. It allows you to pre-schedule tweets for the week ahead and to automatically tweet every time that you add a new page to your blog or website.
You do no want to blatantly advertise when you are sending out your tweets, but you do want to subtly promote yourself. Basically, it is ok to self-promote so long as you are providing your followers with something of value. So, you want to mainly use tweets to link back to things that you have produced yourself. Taking this approach, it is important to not always link back to your own personal site. You need to write guest posts for other people’s blogs, submit articles at the best article directories, publish content on web 2.0 sites, etc. You need to offer your followers some variety as otherwise they will become bored and will stop clicking on the links in your tweets.
Once you start showing yourself to be an authority in your industry, other Twitter users will naturally begin following you. HootSuite is of assistance again here as you can set it up to email every time you gain a new follower. When you receive notification that you have a new follower you should check out their Twitter profile and send them a tweet with a link to your blog / website at the end of it. You want to encourage close links between yourself and your followers. To achieve this, post your personal contact information on your website/blog. You should encourage your followers to join your mailing list and subscribe to your RSS feed.
