It's nearly 3 years since I posted on this blog....my I have been busy! During that period I employed a number of different strategies and indeed made money, mainly as an affiliate marketer selling stuff from the Warrior Forum and JVZoo.
During the period Twitter has totally changed and the use of automated tools there completely banned. Twitter however remains a fantastic place to recruit new subscribers to your email list. You have to be more subtle and engaged and the posting of spam affiliate links has become entirely ineffective.
Growing your followers has not really changed ...just select gurus in your niche and ask their Followers to follow you...about 40% will still do that. You must then engage them before offereing a free gift in exchange for them giving their name and email addresses.
Giving out good content remains important. A good way to do that is to join the #FF or #FollowFriday game. Using this strategy you post a #FF post which may say something like " #FF @TonyRobbins - he really empowered me this week."
