Twitter Tips and Tricks To Drive Traffic To Your Sites

By:     Topics: Get Web Traffic

When I first launched IncomeDiary, 90% of the traffic came from Twitter which resulted in earning over $5000 in my first month! That’s the great thing about Twitter, you can drive traffic almost instantly allowing you to make a quick income.

Every month I receive around 100,000 visitors to my websites just from Twitter alone and so can every single one of you! I know a lot of you enjoyed the tips I shared in my FREE eCourse about making money online blogging and driving traffic to your blog from Twitter so today I decided to do an updated twitter guide so you can benefit more from Twitter like myself.

The great thing with Twitter is the people using it are so diverse, whatever your business is about, you can find people related to your business. I remember a friend was talking to me just before we went for dinner about how he thought Twitter was just for Internet Entrepreneurs and he wouldn’t be able to get people related to his business to follow him on Twitter.

He runs a clothing company online offering some of the top brands for great prices. I quickly started a fashion focused Twitter account and before we went for dinner I started adding some followers. When we returned from dinner he had already had sales from being on Twitter for 1 hour. I was happy because he let me pick some shirts from his warehouse for showing him how to do it.

Over the last year, driving traffic from Twitter has changed a lot, you use to have to fit their doing everything manual which would take up a good part of your day. Now you can follow people, unfollow, pre schedule tweets and so much more with simple applications that do everything for you which is the true secret to driving insane traffic from Twitter on almost autopilot.

Quick Tip: I actually get my assistant to do all of my Twitter stuff using the two applications below.

TOOLS YOU’LL NEED

Driving Traffic From Twitter To Your Blog

When I use Twitter, I use it so I can update my readers about what’s new on my websites and what I’m doing, just like everyone else seems to do. The different, everyone else has around 100 followers and so it doesn’t really make much of a difference to the traffic that goes to their website. I have around 80,000 followers now and I will share how you can quickly catch up.

Now before I go too far, I think it is important to say that while I am a huge fan of Twitter (being able to search real time about current happenings or events is awesome) – I should say that of late, Twitter has also been the subject of spammers or automated accounts set up to drive traffic to less than good websites.

What I am about to reveal is not about being a spammer, it is about legitimate business people getting the best out of twitter and also about legitimate business people being fully up to speed on the techniques other Twitter users are using.

Lets get Started:

The first thing you need to do to get more followers is add more people, but adding 80,000 people must take for ever… Luckily there are tools that will allow you to automatically do most of your Twitter marketing, from adding people, deleting, tweeting and much more.

I personally recommend two great pieces of software, Market Me Tweet or Tweet Adder, they both allow you to add more people, but Market Me Tweet also gives you a bunch of extra branding options.

This is the way I add people, it doesn’t mean it’s right, it’s just how I do it. Firstly find some big names in your industry that will have people following them that will also be interested in following yourself.

For example if you have a Celebrity blog, you may want to go Perez Hilton’s twitter profile, then click on followers, now in the top left will be a button saying “Add All Followers”. It will automatically start adding one of his followers every 2 seconds till its added 1000.

Then after 1000 people it will stop adding, this is because Twitter has a limit to only being able to add 1000 friends a day. Now you do this every day, usually at the same time, I recommend between 4 – 6pm (that is UK time) as this usually is the most active time on Twitter and you’re more likely to get people follow you back if they are online at the time you add them.

Usually from adding 1000 people, I will get around 400 view my profile and click my website URL which means I get 400 highly targeted visitors in 24 hours. Bare in mind this is just the first point of contact, they will also revisit when I tweet and more people will visit when my followers retweet my tweets to their followers.

Perez Hiltons Twitter Followers

Finding Twitter profiles related to your niche can begin to get hard, when I struggle to find people related to my niche’s I use a website called WeFollow which basically lists top Twitter users in different groups, for example in Social Media category Mashable is the top profile, he runs the top blog about social media which means if you also have a blog about social media, you would do good to follow his followers.

Deleting People On Twitter Can Be Important

A lot of the stuff I’m about to share with you is stuff I don’t use myself because its not necessary for me but it is definitely something you should know about, even if you don’t use it all. The first thing about adding 1000 people a day is that you will be following 600 people more every day then will be following you back so your account will have a lot less people following it then your following which will not make you look very popular.

With Twitter, you want to make yourself look as popular as possible so people will be more likely to follow you, think about it this way, would you follow someone who is following 500 people and only has 200 people following him back? Probably not.

But if the person is following 500 people and has 50,000 following him back then he will look like he has something good to say so you will be a lot more likely to follow him, so social proof is really important! Below are some tips and tricks you can use to cut down the amount of people you follow on Twitter.

Automatically un-follow everyone who doesn’t follow you back is the first step to getting down the amount of people you follow. Now I don’t recommend you do this every day as it won’t give your new followers enough time to follow you and check your profile out so you should do it perhaps twice a week. The script you should use for this is Twitter Mutuality, you can unfollow everyone not following you or choose to unfollow everyone.

The next thing I do and do recommend you all do is use a site called UnTweeps which will allow you to automatically un-follow anyone you are following who hasn’t updated their profile in a few days, you may choose any amount of days you like but I think a fair amount of days would be 7 because for some reason they could just not of been able to get online.

This is a great tool because if they haven’t updated then they won’t be seeing your Tweets, a lot of them will be following you back so it will make you look even popular because they won’t un-follow you because they don’t use anymore.

If you do get to the point where your following 40,000 people and you realize you really don’t want to be following all these people, then to delete everyone is really simple. Its something I don’t 100% agree with but I do see this happen a lot and then people will think your super popular. If you want to do this, the tool to use is Twollow which will allow you to delete 2000 people at a time.

Using Twitter and Blogging Together

As I mentioned above, using Twitter to drive traffic to your blog is super important and is one of the reasons for my success. To get more out of Twitter, you want to promote Twitter on your blog in a few different ways.

One of the most well known ways is to add a TweetMeMe button which includes a counter of how many times people have retweeted your blog post and it allows other people to automatically retweet it themselves. To use this counter and others TweetMeMe have, click here.

For those lazy people or for those who like everything automated this next resource is really good. If you pre-publish your blog posts like me when you go away on vacation or when you have guest posters and won’t be around then you can automatically tweet when new posts are published on your WordPress blog.

Twitter Poster will take the title of a new post and will submit it to the Twitter account specified in the options. It will also add the link back to the post, allowing your twitter followers to access the post details

Other Twitter Tools I Use

Managing 80,000 Twitter followers is impossible, you can’t see what your real friends are doing and the updates that are important. For me its important to see what Young Entrepreneurs, Gurus and Web Designers are saying so I set up a group for each and added the necesary people to each group so I don’t miss a tweet – you can do this using TweetDeck.

As a lot of you know, I went away for a couple weeks and didn’t really update my sites for a month, over that time I still wanted to boost my traffic so I asked my VA to pre publish 100 tweets, a new tweet had to be sent every 2 hours and once the 100 tweets have been published, just repeat.

To do this I used pre-publishing software, TweetLater. You can also use TweetLater to send automatic messages when someone new follows you, welcoming them and recommending your website. Although this is great to do, it isn’t really effective anymore as it seems everyone does it (I have over 10,000 messages, I guess 9,950 are automatic).

To Our Success,

Michael Dunlop

  • Yeh man, twitter is awesome. We do get so much traffic. Great post to help out other blogs!

  • Daniel Matthews

    Some really great tips and tricks here, Like you said these tools aren’t for everybody but when used correctly can probably make a huge difference.

    TweetDeck is my saviour! Putting people into groups means I don’t miss a thing, even when following a large amount of people!

  • baloot

    well, i guess this time i will optimize my traffic using twitter. thank you micheal. cheers!

    • milsum

      yeah, lets do it together my mate…
      hehehe..

  • I’ve dabbled with Twitter as a way to boost traffic but I’ve only ever promoted myself to those who are already following me, hence are already probably fans of my site.

    Actively searching for new people to follow/followers in my niche myself is so glaringly obvious yet had thus far escaped me!

    Thanks for all the advice.

  • Alif Rachmawadi

    Awesome tips. I have done some of them, but after read this post, I have to try new one and optimize it.
    Thanks Michael!

  • Some cool tips here. I use most of those services you mentioned above. I will try your grease monkey trick. Lets see if it will do any good to me..

    Thanks!

  • Muzi Mohale

    From my experience, I’ve found that building followers through an automated process leads to a lot of junk following one, without any value to your website/blog, irrespective that you selected to follow a crowd/group from a closely related niche blog/website since that doesn’t guarantee that the list itself is 100% perfect.

    To me this has led to a growing list of automated direct messages which have no value to me at all that I receive daily and which is a serious pain.

    Hi Michael
    My twitter account has been suspended, why I dont know. I was having some 700 follower, sent an application to reconsider to open my account.
    khalid

    • Michael

      Hey Khalid,

      When did you do this? Typically I don’t regret that you just go out and follow 1000 people and have 0 followers becauses its obviously build for spam, slowly build it into a list that works.

      Michael

      • khalid

        should I open a new account in twitter or wait for the response of twitter people ?

  • Roland

    Great post Michael. Keep up the good work.

  • Luis Lopez

    Excellent technique Michael, but I can’t download the script it opens just all the code on a new tab…
    what can I do

  • Luis Lopez

    Again me, is ok it working, just relaunch firefox and go to install script then enable the greasy monkey.

    • Michael

      Good to hear its working. Don’t over do it, slowly build it up or you may get into trouble. I have never done but its just a warning as people do.

      Michael

  • Great Post Mike.
    Thanks for Twitter Friend Adder script. I’m using it now….

  • Sounds like there may be some glitches to the process. Not sure that I want to try something without it being tried and true.

    • Michael

      Hello,

      There are no glitches, just everyone was new to doing this so had to learn, they are all fine now and understand the script.

  • Gary A. Parenti

    Hello Again Michael,

    Another Great Post by one of the best .YOU!.I also wrote a small post on my Blog about Twitter.com.Here it is…As Follows…

    I know everyone on Twitter doesn`t have the time to check out every little detail on the Twitter Site , so I found this Secret location for you that haven`t found it as of yet.This is what you do.

    Scroll all the way down on your home page in your Twitter account..Then you come to a little narrow tool bar or task bar. Then you click on the API Link. when you are directed to the next page or as I call it,

    Twitters back office.,you then look on the left side of this page until you see Twitter fan wiki.Then you click the twitter fan wiki link… When directed to the next page or further into the back office, you look for APPS.

    This APPS Link should be the first link on the left side of the page. Click the APPS Link and from there you will see so much information that is related to Twitter and what Twitter is up to.Everyone interested in Twitter should look
    into this Back Office.

    Like You Say,
    To Our Success,
    Gary A. Parenti

    Great Article. Very useful for me. Thanks Mike

  • arsha @ brand. build. sell.

    awesome tips and tricks! just curious. how do you stop (or pause) the script once you have clicked “add all followers”?

    • arsha @ brand. build. sell.

      disregard! i figured it out. thanks! the cancel button was stuck for a bit! still an awesome script though!

  • Thank you so much for the wealth of information on Twitter that you provide!! I know that Tweeting has driven a lot of customers my way by triple if not more. I got my daughter on Twitter and her traffic also quadrupled but she won’t admitt to me that I helped her? Mother daughter dynamic is difficult!! LOL Oh well it is good to be helpful in this world. I do believe that what goes around comes around. You do receive in proportion to what you give in this life and not just online. I will be studying a lot more about what you have to say. I have had a lot of viewers to my online shop but not necessarily customers? I think you hit it on the head when you say that we need to choose our followers wisely. I have just started to figure this out and with what you have said here in this article is awesome!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so very much for paying it forward!!!!

      Hello Joni,

      Great to hear your feedback, I know that trouble with people not giving credit where credit is due πŸ˜‰

      With your online store, look for one related to yours and then find there followers. For example Zappos and ASOS, two huge online stores have a great following on twitter.

  • Vijay

    Yes, Michael, Twitter is very usefull in getting new people to know you. I have been building folowers list thru twitter and I need to succeed like you in blogging.

    Great help, thanks Michael.l

  • Great Resource!
    I’m very sure to have a try! Thanks Michael!

  • Nick

    Michael,

    Thanks for the post.

    Let’s say I use the “Add All Followers” option and like you said I follow 1000 new people. What happens in the day after that? Does the script know to continue from the last person I’ve added? Or should I seek for another popular twitter user?

  • Michael, good solid tips. I am new to using Twitter so your tips help.
    I can recommend Tweeterfeed.com, with this free tool you can add a RSS Feed to be published on your Twitter accounts. I have one feed from my weblog connected to Twitter and for our website and online shop we do the same with product updates that we automatically publish in a feed and this links through to the Twitter accounts that belong to these websites.
    The Twitterfeed dashboard shows how many times a feed was clicked.

  • And yet you still only have 6000 followers?

    • Michael

      Hey Josh,

      I have around 80,000 ~ thought you knew as ive blogged with you on my popular account. Your talking about my personal account which has 7,000 followers.

      Michael

  • Bill

    Dear Michael,

    If I follow the above steps for following people above, will it get me past the 2,000 that Twitter currently has as my limit? I have about 820 people following me and I am following about 1,999. I know that if I keep following others I will receive a message saying “limit reached”. Does this process above with the FF and plug-ins get around that?

    Thanks for your help.
    – Bill

    • Michael

      Hello Bill,

      The plug-in doesn’t get round this, once you get close to 2000 followers it will start to let you go past 1999 following. Just take it easy and slowly at the start.

      MIchael

      • Bill

        Michael,

        I can’t seem to get more than 800 followers, it’s kinda up and down hovering around 800. I feel like I will never get to 2,000 at this piont. I am currently following 1,997 people.

        Do you have any advice, I’d greatly appreciate it!

        Thanks.

        • Michael

          Hello Bill,

          You need to unfollow those who don’t follow you back using the tools above and then start following more, that is how you get over this problem.

          Michael

  • Ahmed El.Hussaini

    Thank you so very much for well organized article. Really helpful.

  • Luke Bond

    Great post Micheal!

    Another tool I might add which is very useful with Twitter is DM whacker. Its a little script a bit like greasemonkey which will delete all your direct message. It’s quite handy as if you use your script to add everyone, you get lots of auto responses which fills your inbox right up.

    Try out http://dcortesi.com/tools/dm-deleter/

  • This was a great post.

    I wasn’t aware of the “unTweeps” site… very handy.

    As I’m just really starting to learn about building targeted traffic I’m grateful that you as well as some other bloggers post such great content.

    Thanks Michael!

  • GoBusiness101

    The trick here, is keep following the most followed tweets account. Because they are also seeking whom to follow at random.

  • Lin Klaassen

    I am very thankful for the people like you who are a twitter success and share your knowledge with us who wish to follow in your footsteps. Twitter opens a world that few would have seen possible ten years ago. I appreciate your generous sharing,

  • Daniel

    Thanks Michael for a great tip.
    Question: Is there a similar resource for extracting friends off of Facebook?

  • Brian

    It appears the GreaseMonkey script isn’t working again.

    • Michael

      Hello Brian,

      I don’t know what problem you are having with it but it works for everyone else.

      Michael

  • Michael, you are brilliant. This worked perfectly. I am seeing a 10% conversion rate from follow them to follow me.

    Thank you.

  • Hey Michael, your writing is quite good, but typos get by the best of us.

    Just a wee correction:
    “Bare in mind this is just the first point of contact”

    Should be BEAR in mind. πŸ˜‰

    Really smart site. Good guides.

  • Great tips, here Michael.

    I was wondering if it’s smart to un-follow everyone not following you? Some people / sites (like this one) don’t follow all of their followers, but I want their updates.

    Also, how should you handle the amount of followers? I know it’s polite to follow those who follow you, but honestly I don’t know how I can make real connections if I try to follow 5000 people. So as you start to unfollow people, will they dump you too, or do they just not notice?

    • Michael

      Hello Leslie,

      Important question, what I do is have two accounts, use on for personal who I follow people I want to follow. The other account I use to follow everyone related to my niche and website.

      Michael

  • Andrew

    great guide! about reading updates from real friends and followers, i preferred having saparate accounts; one for real friends and other for business.

    • Michael

      Hello Andrew,

      Exactly what I do, works very well.

      Michael

  • Thanks Michael, I used Twitter Mutality after reading this post, and dropped the unfollowers like a bad disease!! Now the ratio is much better! Next I want to try adding followers from popular twitter users in my niche..will see how it works.

  • Faina

    I’ve been able to follow this technique for about 2 or 3 times, but I now have not been able to follow anyone for a few days in a row. I can’t follow manually or automatically via the script. There’s always a message saying “You are unable to follow more people at this time. Learn more here.” – I don’t know what to do now, it’s so annoying not to be able to add anyone.

    Did anyone else experienced this issue before? Is my account being under spam suspicion maybe? Or has Twitter kind of discovered the automatic patterns of the script and is now penalizing everyone who has been using it?

  • Thanks for the great article.

    The greasemonkey script does not seem to work. I have installed the app and added the url http://twitter.com/*/following* but still no joy. Can you help please.

    I’m glad that I started following your series create a profitable blog. I would recommend it to everyone whether they are new to blogging or not – go for it. You will learn a lot.

  • Dr. Michael Wegmann

    Great article Michael,

    I am having one problem. I followed your steps to use grease monkey. When I log on to twitter and hit “follow” it follows about 10 people and is says “you are unable to follow people at this time, chick here” than I get a message that says “You do not have access to entry #14959. It may have been deleted.” It is not allowing me to follow 1000 people a day? Any suggestions?

  • I agree. Twitter is one of the best source to drive traffic to a blog or website. Excellent Post πŸ™‚

  • Teasastips

    Thanks for the tips Michael. I enjoyed reading and implementing the tools as I went along. However, Twitter must have changed something since August (when you first wrote the post) because there isn’t an “add all followers” button any longer. Good tips anyway.

    I need some quick advice. I bought Tweet Adder and have been following a ton of targeted baseball players and fans…but have not seen a lot of follow backs. Maybe 5%-10%.

    Do you have any advice for improving the amount of users that follow back?

    Thanks Mike

    Very helpful post Michael, thank you.

    I’m just starting to get into Twitter (I know, I’m ashamed to admit it, but I’ve been avoiding it), but it definitely looks like a fantastic tool to drive traffic to your site.

    I’ve downloaded the trial version of Tweet Adder, and it certainly seems to be a powerful tool.

    Cheers again

    Hi Michael,

    Great post! I have stumbled across your blog today and think this is one of the best blog with great content! Well done!

    Just wonder for the twitter traffic, do you only attract traffic when you first follow people? Do you use it to blast an instant direct message to all your follower (instead of tweet since there will be only a few people see your tweets at that time)?

    Appreciate if you can shed some light on this!

    Cheers,
    Ming Jong

    Great post, Michael.

    Are you generating traffic to multiple website using one twitter account or do you use multiple accounts for that?

    My main problem is the mixing between my software and photography related business. It targets two different audiences.

    Cheers,

  • sonny chatrath

    Thanks for the tips. I just used Untweeps to unfollow 650 users. I have saved your blog to my favorites. Twitters is a very strong tool for businesses.

  • Yeh man, twitter is awesome. We do get so much traffic. Great post to help out other blogs!

  • martin

    Great tips. It’s nice to see such and as a blogger, I have to agree with the flow. I really got it a lot. Appreciated!

  • Amanda

    Thank you so much for such an excellent guide on twitter. You really rock. Btw, I noticed that you link to tweetlater.com – which is now social oomph. Social Oomph has an affiliate program now. You can read about it here http://www.socialoomph.com/affiliates.

  • Vivek Krishnan

    Hi Michael, thanks for your recommendation. Will try it out soon.

  • Kennedy

    Awesome tips man. I think social media like blogging, twitter and event our friendly foe Facebook are more important than ever. Last year I booked some significant speaking gigs as a result of using Twitter, in fact when I launched the global rebrand of Yahoo I asked the European Executive why he chose me and he said it was because I was a real person who he felt he knew, liked and trusted to do the job right.
    So, before this I was doubting the power, now I push it to it’s max and have a strategy in place that delivers awesome leads!
    Loving the blog man!

  • Kamran Aziz

    Nice post.. i’ll be back on this blog soon…

  • Good resource, untweeps was new to me, and really helpful as twitter karma doesnt bulk unfollow anymore and I am in desperate need of that tool.

  • Jeremiah

    Hi Michael,

    Is this the only tool that we really need ? (Market Me Tweet) to follow your strategy or do we need many of the tools you mentioned?

    I am hoping that one tool will do everything πŸ™‚

    Thanks!

  • Thanks for sharing! I’m not yet using twitter to drive some traffic to my blog but now i’m considering it.

    Hi Michael

    Thank you for the course. Have enjoyed doing it.

    I would like ideas from you or others on how to use my free ebook to drive customers to my blog. In particular, Id be interested in ideas involving Twitter.

    Suggestions anyone?

    Cheers

      First things first. I checked out your site. This site is excellent for learning how to promote your blog. But I also recommend you check out David Risley’s site about turning your blog into a business. I’m hoping Michael doesn’t mind me dropping that here (but David and Michael seem to be friends anyway). In particular look for a post or video about promoting your free e-book.

      Now, to answer your question. One cool thing you can do is add a re-tweet script at the end of your e-book. Ask people to click a button on your e-book (script) and re-tweet the book if they liked it. (I’ve done it, it works.) Check out a site called Social Media Examiner to learn how to do this. It’s easy.

  • Twitter has been great for helping drive traffic to my site, as well as working phenomenal for getting input directly from my niche through surveys.

    I’ve been using it more and more for the offline businesses I’ve been working with and they have been noticing a minor boost in sales because people saw offers on Twitter and came into the store.

    I’m curious to see where it will be going next…any ideas on future Twitter trends for offline businesses?

  • wijaya valentino

    Great post, very very fantastic i like it

  • Hi Michael

    Read your post about a week ago and been playing with twitter for a while.

    I still really don’t get it ?

    BUT

    I need traffic so I thought I would give it another go since your post.

    I really do think Twitter like legal spam.

    Should be spammers not followers?

    Well I thought hold on if I wanted something I would click it so I will give it a go even though it really didn’t work in the niche I was just working in.

    Anyway been following a few tips and starting to work so I will buy your software you suggested and see what happens.

    I do like your simple traffic strategy I think so many people make it so difficult.

    Nice one

    Phill

  • Mike

    I would be happy to buy through your referral link if you could tell me if both have an auto add feature and which one has the option to add all friends. Market me suite looks better but I’ll ultimately go with the one that has the better auto add features.

  • it’s easy to rank on that because there are only 159,000 links to beat, unlike ranking on the make money online keyword where there million links index.

  • Hersha V

    Hey Michael,
    I found your blog and read how to use Twitter to drive traffic…and set to work on it immediately…I thought it would be useful to mention that when following people in your niche you should pay attention to whose followers your following…

    For example to get a following for my golf blog, I figured I’d start following people who followed the PGA Tour. My follow back rate was around 10-15%. I created another Twitter account with similar tweets and started following the followers of an expert in the niche…my follow back rate was 30-40%.

    So far in my experience following the followers of a expert (or small niche company) in the niche seems to work better than following the followers of a larger organization.

    Once again, great post…

  • Is there any benefit in trying to find people who look like they may be new? If I add 1000 of people like you and problogger, are they going to be inclined to go to my site when I send out links? Or does it look good just to be following people in the industry.

    I have wondered this as I have been building my twitter followers.

    Also I heard following any more than 75 people a day can get you flagged, is that number right? Tweet adder defaults to 250 so it seems really low.

  • Hi Great post but using # tag can drive more and more traffic use best ways keep sharing great tips to improve page rank and much more.
