Happy Monday to everyone. We are just one day away from the List Eruption launch, so as you can imagine I am super excited! I am looking forward to giving you guys what I use to really help grow my list.
List Building Essentials – Tip #5
Social Media is a great way to build relationships with like-minded people. It can also be a GOLDMINE for building a list. For Twitter in particular, whenever someone starts following you, that is a great opportunity to not only introduce yourself, but to hit them with value.
I have a few different Twitter profiles in the different niches that I am active in and I have an automated message that introduces myself and gives them a link to a free report that is relevant to the industry. I know some of you are saying well that is not really personable if you are sending out an automated reply to them. I agree, that is is not as personable, but given my current situation I simply don’t have the time to manually message every new Twitter follower I get. If you can write a personal tweet to each new follower, go for it…but I feel that 1 automated tweet doesn’t hurt. Also if you are providing them with a free piece of value, they should have no problem at all.
Here are a few examples of auto-replies I have used that work well.
- Thanks for the follow! Odds are you LOVE [niche] like I do, so make sure you download [free content].
- Nice to meet you! Check out my [free content]…would love your feedback on how I cam improve it.
- Followed back : ) Check out my [blog/website] and how I was able to [problem you solved].
You are going to need a Twitter auto-reply service to handle this for you. Luckily there are only like 500 services to choose from. Personally I use TweetAdder, because of all the other features it has, but there are plenty of free services out there you can try.
- Tweeting Machine (free)
- Twitter DMer (free)
- Social Oomph (free – $29.95/month)
- Tweet Adder ($55 – $188)
** Tip: If you really want to grow your list fast with this method, you can mass auto-follow people based on keywords in their profile (not necessarily recommended) which will help grow your following and subscribers faster.
