Tweet to Build your List

As promised, and a little late in the day…Here is one way to build your list using Twitter…

You will need four things to implement this plan…

1. a Twitter account

2. a freebie for a giveaway product…I am using the profit platform that the Fortunate 500 have available.

3. an account at

4. finally an email account that lets you forward emails from Twitter automatically.

Ok, have them all?

Go to your Twitter account, login and go to SETTINGS.  Once there click on the NOTICES tab.

Now make sure that the box next to NEW FOLLOWER EMAILS is checked.

Now click on the ACCOUNT tab and go to where you can add your ONE LINE BIO, this is where I put a line similar to “Follow me and I will send you a FREE traffic report” 

OKAY now lets set up your TweetLater account…

Fill in the ADD A NEW ACCOUNT form

Check the AUTO WELCOME box, under the MESSAGE SENDING METHOD select “Send private direct message”  its in the drop down menu.

Now in the SEND THIS MESSAGE area type in the note you want to have automatically sent to your new Twitter followers.  DONT FORGET THE LINK TO YOUR FREEBIE…

Remember your link to the freebie needs to go through your auto responder so they sign up to your list!!

Okay, last thing to do…

Go to your email account and set up a filter or rule to AUTO-FORWARD your new follower notification emails from Twitter to this email address 

The beauty of this for my fellow Alex Students is we already have the freebie with follow-up in place.  We only need to direct people to that url. 

What do you think should, I make a video (it would be my first) to show how to set this up?   

Thanks for reading….Thanks for sharing this post with others…

Oh and it works, I have had a couple of new followers who I do not see on the Student Lists…and best of all…these are a couple of people I would not have had on my list if I hadn’t implemented this.

Useing Twitter to Build Your Email List

Hey all,

First and most important…

Second – Good news and bad news… 

Good News: I found a way to use Twitter to build your opt in list. 

Bad News: I will post it later,

Sorry but I have too many things to do for the next couple of days… My mother-in-laws birthday is Christmas Eve, I have to assist at mass at my parish both tonite and tomorrow, my kids and wife want their Christmas with my eyes and heart focused on them, and Friday I am going to visit my parents for Christmas festivities. 

But I promise I will be putting the steps to this List Building With Twitter (still thinking about the name) together, maybe even a brandable ebook, for all of you. 

I plan to write a post here by Saturday…

It will be worth the wait…maybe I should say weight <grin> cause it will grow your list I am sure.

Oh yeah, you wizbangs out there that want to charge ahead…go to my Twitter page @, follow me and you will probably figure out what I stumbled on…

Blessings to all…


Blogging is the Prime method to develop expertise

After attending Alex Jeffreys Module #3 training session last night it has become crystal clear to me that blogging is one of THE most important ways to develop your online presense. 

It can also be a self regulator.  By that I mean it will make you accountable.  For example, If I know that I am developing a readership I owe it to you as that reader to offer good information.  If I owe that to you then I will have to continue to learn and grow my abilities. 

I came across a great little document that shows how to get moving with a blog.  It focuses on WordPress as the vehicle.  I went off and bought the Master Resell Rights so that I can offer it FREE here. 

So if ya would like it, its yours fill out the form below please
