When I started out with my blog I told my self I wasn’t gonna write this type of review posts,….and I won’t.
Because this is not your ordinary everyday review.
Keep reading and you’ll see why.
The honest truth is that, as a start-up blogger my self the thing I struggle with the most is getting traffic to my blog. And as I am trying to create an automated income stream for my self the thing I strive to accomplish is to generate automated traffic that the search engines like Google or Bing can provide.
Now, I don’t want to lie to you, generating traffic to a blog, even if it’s a new blog like this one isn’t hard, you just have to work on it.
The thing that turns people off is the confusing nature of SEO or search engine optimization, which every one of us is required to do if we want to get that automated traffic from the search engines I was telling you about earlier.
A Traffic Generating Strategy with Quick Results
I can assure you SEO works, but it takes time to get it right, and to actually witness noticeable results especially for new websites. I was very excited when I started my blog and had a great momentum going, but there was one thing that always brought me down:the traffic stats from Google analytics.
I’m sure you know this feeling, to pour your heart and soul in writing content creating backlinks and after a while when your checking your stats…15 users visited your website?!?
Right? Well what I found out is the key to keeping motivated and keep the momentum going when your starting out is to see quick results. Just listen to this podcast episode of Pat Flynn interviewing Corbett Barr from ThinkTraffic.net and you’ll know what I talking about. Link to Pat Flynn’s podcast
I’ve also written a post on how to jump start traffic to a new blog with social media, you might want to check it out…but not just yet.
The fact is that social media can actually deliver quick results when it comes to traffic. All you have to do is build a community around yourself, of like-minded people who have an interest in what you’re putting out there.
The strategy is quite simple actually, let’s take Twitter for example.
The first thing you should do is to find out who are the most influential people in your niche.
Start following those people. After that go through their followers and start following them, when you start it’s recommended you don’t follow more than 200 people a day.
What you will notice is that after 2 or 3 days a lot of the people you followed are starting to follow you back. After these 2 or 3 days you will then start to unfollow the people who didn’t follow you back and repeat the process again.
The fact is, this is the easiest way to get a lot of followers on Twitter in a relative short amount of time, and the best part is that these people are most likely to have the same interests you have regarding the content they read and share.
As a blogger most of your time should be spent writing content and coming up with new ideas for posts. Growing a community of like-minded people around your content takes up a lot of your time, that’s why the best thing you can do is to automate this process.
I often find my self spending hours on Twitter or Facebook, when normally I should be writing posts for my blog.
Automation will free up a lot of your time and also drastically speed things up.
I know a lot of people dismiss automation when it comes to Twitter because there have been many cases in which Twitter banned people who used services that automated their activity on the social network.
But as long as you don’t over do it, and the most important thing, don’t spam people with your messages everything will be ok.
How to do Twitter Automation Without Getting Banned with Tweet Adder
The honest truth is that there are a lot of websites that offer this kind of services, but the ones that actually offer a high value service most of the times require you to pay a monthly fee.
What I want to show you is how you can do all of this with only one piece of software that you can download on your computer or laptop and for which you will receive unlimited support and updates without having to be subscribed to any monthly plan.
I’ve taken the time to create this video that will show you how you can use TweetAdder to get more Twitter followers without having to spend a lot of your time doing this.
The fact is that in less than a month I’ve more than doubled my Twitter followers with only spending 5 to 10 minutes a day using Tweet Adder. When I was doing this manually it took me a lot more time especially when it came to unfollow people who didn’t follow me back.
Updated Follower Count
I’ve updated my follower count chart since the one above stopped at the 2000 follower mark, which was the number of Twitter followers I actually had at the time I published this blog post. Below is an updated chart after passing the 2000 follower count. Twitter will only allow you to follow 10% more people than the people that follow you once you’ve reached 2000 followers.
You shouldn’t be worried about the rate of people following you slowing down, the key to getting traffic from Twitter isn’t in the number of followers you have but more in what type of information are they interested in.
Actually that’s the whole beauty of using Tweet Adder, you get targeted Twitter followers who are interested in what you tweet about, and the best part is that it only takes you a couple of minutes every 2 or 3 days depending on how you’ve set up the unfollow setting for people who didn’t follow you back.
Tweet Adder 4.0 Just Released

One thing I would like to clarify before I end my post is that growing a large Twitter following of like-minded people can be done free, you don’t have to spend anything in order to do this.
But I’ll ask you this, what’s better, spending just 5 minutes a day on Tweet Adder and the rest of your time writing posts and researching new ideas for your blog or business, or spending a lot of time looking for the right people to follow, and then manually unfollowing the people who haven’t followed you back.
