    Hey jon, I have recently started using your twitter strategy for building rabid following and I am amazed to see that I am regularly getting new followers and re tweets. It's amazing how simple change in my process has resulted in this. Thank you for this and all the other some valuable things you share.

    You Rock!.

    Thanks for the video. I always learn so much from you. I"m trying to break the elusive 2,000 follower mark on Twitter. I'd love if anyone on here would follow me @lisawells1. I'm an author so I retweet articles on social media that are helpful to authors. And I blog about social media for authors at lisawellsauthor.blogspot.com. I"m working on ideas for guest blog posts.

    Hey I know this is off topc but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet myy newest twitter
    updates. I've bren looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
    experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I ook forward to
    your new updates.

    hey there and thank you for your info – I've definitely picked up something
    new from right here. I did however expertise a few technical issues
    using this website, as I experienced to reload the site lots of times previous to I could get it to load correctly.
    I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that
    I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if
    ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and
    could look out for much more of your respective exciting content.

    Make sure you update this again soon.

    This is one of the best pieces of information I have heard in a long time!

    I found out today that you can search your tweeted articles on Twitter. I have had several articles tweeted and never in a million years did I think about following those people. So stinking simple!

    Great information Jon. I tell people who blog if they aren't on Twitter they are blogging for nothing. Twitter is the best way to share and get your blog posts shared.

    Though I do disagree on one point, that people "not just going to follow you for the heck of it." I get followed by people who want to sell me stuff, they never share. I get followed by design students and other designers, about 5% share but will never hire me as a designer.

    Not everyone realizes you have to give (share) to get. Twitter is a two way street - good members of the community share and are not just about themselves.

    Always thank those who RT, which if you use Hootsuite, you don't see all of theses and have to look at the real Twitter feed. Twitter is a community and it pays to be a good member. 🙂

    Enjoyed your video and everything you say makes great sense. The problem I am having with Twitter right now however is that I am stuck at the 2000 follow rule that they have.

    Anything you could do to provide me with how to get around this would be greatly appreciated.

    Wow Jon, this is such an inspiring post. I have learned back in business school that businesses use the power of reciprocation to market and sell their product. But I have yet to see any bloggers implement this stretegy into their operation lest sharing the idea.
    I'm sure the idea can be extended, for beginner bloggers, to buying popular blogger's service/ product and then follow/circle/friend them when they remember you from a Q&A session of a webinar or other forms of contact for the future promotion of your own posts.

    I hadn't thought of searching for my blog posts to see who has re-tweeted them in order to follow them (and then list them accordingly - my advice). Twitter is an engaging medium thank you for showing me how to take it up a notch.

    I love Twitter and have a great, loyal, and very supportive group of people following me. My last post was from the bottom of my soul, an essay on courage, motherly love, and determination to fight hunger. I posted it once, and it went all over. People responded, it got retweeted, and I received a bunch of new followers. There is definitely something wonderful in being the part of the tribe.
    I still have to try blogging for big bloggers - I have done several guest blog posts for people who are just a bit more popular than me, but nothing on the big scale. Still gathering the courage.
    My blog is a bit different - an essay/food blog, more like a story with a recipe in the end as a bonus. I know I write well, but I am not in the MacDonald's niche of food blogs:)
    Thanks for another great idea, Jon!

    to your point one of my favorite social media features is the network stats on linkedin. This is because when it shows my network stats it not only shows my number of connections but the total number of people i could reach through all my connection's connections. At last check i had about 900 contacts that linked me to a total of about 4 million people all together. and I just recently joined twitter. I'm ashamed to say I didn't do it because i felt the necessity of doing it but because i had recently installed sharing buttons on my blog and wanted to play with all of them. I now have two followers, but I am tweeting my blog posts. thanks for all the great advice, Max

    I wish I could do your course now - as in right now. One teeny tiny thing that is stopping me is my pesky Post Grad Uni degree that I am doing, in case I don't make it as a professional blogger. And just so I can add some money to my measely 9 dollar income that I generate from writing.

    Thanks SO much, Jon!! I've been wondering about Twitter a lot lately because it's not a medium that I'm all that comfortable with. Honestly, I don't pay attention to anyone I follow, so I just assumed it was the same for everyone - and therefore no point in pouring effort into getting folks to follow ME! But your guest blogging tactic makes a lot of sense, and I'm looking forward to putting your suggestions to use! Thanks a ton!

    Hey Jon

    You have some really polished videos packed with solid content.

    I usually don't watch video posts- it's a combination of factors like low internet speeds, personal preference towards the written word and the notion that it will take me much longer to sit through to the end of the video than it will take to go through an average blog post. I read bastard fast 🙂

    But I am thankful that I sat through this series. It gave me some new ideas and insights on effective Twitter strategies. And now I am going to put some of your advice in practise. 😉
