I doubt twitter can tell manually from auto because I can write a good program to simulated a human.

People come visit your sites because twitter's algorithm still need improvement. I had good and real traffic with link farms, but then when the algorithm improves, I was penalized. It would be hard for you to ask the bots/spammer to unfollow you in twitter I imagine

Then it won't be a tweet any more. More like a bull horn.

I suspect you are right.

I'd go back to my home site, but truth is these big guys are burying us in the SERPs. There's no way to keep up.

Hello @Steve,

Your webinar was excellent! Thank you very much for sharing. I began implementing your strategy late afternoon yesterday and not even 24 hours later, our followers have grown by almost 200!

In the webinar, you mentioned you wait five days before unfollowing someone (if I heard correctly). The CrowdFireApp doesn't filter that granularly. With a large follow campaign over the course of days, how do you track to the five day rule?

When I begin unfollowing, I suspect I may end up unfollowing folks I only recently followed (maybe even same day?).

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

Mark

I am not @Steve ... but I usually go to inactive following and delete ppl who have not been online for a month or more.

I keep that fresh.

@Steve might have a better suggestion. But he's asleep...and he's in love, too ... really. yeesh! 8-)

@Belew

Thanks, Bill! At the moment, the account has a poor ratio of following vs followers. I went through the inactives yesterday so that area is lean and mean.

It seems Twitter has blocked me from unfollowing for the present time. A Crowdfire Support help page says:

======================

Q: When I try to unfollow Non Followers, it
tells me I need to reauthenticate my account.
Why?


Modified on: Mon, 8 Feb, 2016 at 4:14 PM

We know you want to unfollow all your non
followers! We too want you to be able to do so.
But there is a small problem here.

When an account does too many follow/unfollows
twitter detects spam and doesn’t allow you to do
it

Here is what you can do:

Reauthenticate your account and wait for 24 hours
before unfollowing again.

P.S: This issue is actually from Twitter and
hence we cannot fix it in the app.

======================

I will wait 24 hours and see what happens. Anyone else have the same experience with Crowdfire or am I just special?

I'm wondering if @Steve has encountered this? If so, what is his work around?

Cheers!

@mmarkaz

This is common. A simple work around is to go to one of the many places where you can "buy" twitter followers. Just enough to stay ahead of the ratio.

Once you get ahead you can stay ahead.

@Steve?

To be sure we are on the same page, let's say an account has something like:

* Following: 1,500
* Followers: 500

The balancing strategy would be to "acquire" 2,000 more followers giving us:

* Following: 1,500
* Followers: 2,500
* Result: 1,000+ followers more than the following #
* Works out to a 3:5 ratio

1K followers serves as a cushion for another 1K follow campaign so at the end of the day, both (hypothetically) contain the same amount:

* Following: 2,500
* Followers: 2,500

Then, begin pruning the unfollowers and you are left with more followers than following.

* Following: 1,800 <--- after pruning
* Followers: 2,500

After working this through, in this example, it would seem the original 2K acquired followers aren't enough. What would you recommend?

Maybe acquire 5k or 10k followers to start with a bigger cushion. That's how I did it.

!!LOL!!

If you had said that originally, it would have saved the above example.

I tend to have 4 to five thousand people that don't follow me all of the time ... each day I follow one thousand people ... and each day I unfollow one thousand people from this list.

The inactive list I tend to do every month or so as something extra to push up the difference between followers and following...

@JelenaBB

In Dec 2016 I had about 750 Twitter followers. By the end of February I had over 10,000 with the application of the concepts in Bill's presentation. Starting in March I moved it back to a less intense, but still committed, process and the numbers continue to grow. A moment ago, as I started writing this, I had 11,821 followers. I expect this growth to continue, indeed to increase, over the next 9 months. 40 to 50 thousand total over the next 9 months seems about right.

The key, however, is not just to grow the raw numbers but to lead enough of them to action and conversion. Big numbers of followers without engagement or redirection of some sort is just ego feeding. I don't have enough history yet to comment in detail but the traffic to my website is up 300% and I'm seeing about 100% increase in my business revenue since January 1. I've been able to be more selective as I connect with a higher paying audience and my workload has barely increased.

@Rev yes, you are right.
For now, I post about 10 -20 tweets a day.I would like to produce more tweets, but my site is very young (one month), so I still do not have a lot of blog posts. I have 1.5% engagement rate. I think it is a good rate. I try to keep that rate with my grow.
Any suggestions?

@JelenaBB, before I got my posts up I used Hootsuite to add to my content on Twitter. I had a friend create an Excel document so I didn't have to write all the post over and over again each day. I'm happy to share it if you think it would be of interest.

Member JelenaBB private msg quote post Address this user
@SusanDay thank you. I start to use Hootsuite and Crowdfire, but still, don't have many subject on my site that I could share. I do my best to have 10-20 tweets a day from 20 blog posts that I have on my website.

Results from the first day that I use suggestions from the webinar: 58 new followers. If this trend continues its about 1500 followers a month, so it is 9000 per 6 months.
So @Rev, you are right That is much closer to your numbers, then mine.
