Using Twitterfeed for Twitter Automation

Twitterfeed is also a very handy tool. What Twitterfeed does is that you can set up your blog to feed directly via RSS to your Twitter account. So every time you make a blog post, it gets tweeted automatically on your behalf. You can use this in conjunction with Tweetlater (see other post) with the first post coming through Twitterfeed and then subsequent ones at times you specify via Tweetlater.



Using Tweetlater for Twitter Automation

Tweetlater at is a fantastic tool to use with Twitter. It allows you to schedule tweets for various times of the day. So how can this be of use to you?

Well you need to remember that the Twitter audience is constantly changing and the tweetstream occurs quite fast. The more people someone follows, the greater the number of tweets appearing and they won't read them all, I promise you. It just isn't possible.

By using Tweetlater, you have a much greater chance of catching people's attention throughout the day and in different time zones.

Let's say you have written a post on your blog and you want to drive some traffic there. Rather than tweeting the link and subject once, you can do it every hour for 24 hours if you like using Tweetlater. I'm sure you can see the power of this in terms of driving traffic or getting noticed.

There is a free and a professional version of Tweetlater. Start out with the free version and then if you need it, upgrade to the professional version when you are ready.



Twitter Backgrounds

We discussed earlier about setting up your Twitter background so that it didn't just look like the default Twitter page. Leaving it like that shows a lack of care on your part. You need to distinguish yourself from the crowd and that attracts more followers, or at the very least impresses people with your professionalism.

Now if you're a bit of a Photoshop whiz, then you can do your own background, full of bells and whistles and load it up to your Twitter profile. But if you're not, or you just want to save time, then there are some sites out there that will do them for you automagically. To find these sites, the best thing to do is to simply Google “twitter backgrounds” and you will find quite a few sites offering this service for free.

Two of my personal favorites are:

and where you can get some great backgrounds.

The Almighty Autoresponder

The Almighty Autoresponder

The autoresponder, also known as the auto email, mailbot, or email responder is an awesome tool for the online marketer or

business owner. It is an excellent promotional tool that saves time and frustration as it responds to messages with an automatic

response. It also serves as a way to gather new prospect names from those that sign up to receive your offers. It has to be the

number one tool used to build an online list of contacts . . . and we've heard numerous times how the list is the most important

thing to have to succeed in online business.

When setting up your autoresponder, make sure to have a section on your form to get a person's name and email address. You

at least need these to items in order to grow your list, keep in contact, offer valuable information, and make regular offers. Just

as it takes at least 7 times to notice the actual offer in commercials, the same holds true for offers on the internet.

There are a number of autoresponder services available. Some have monthly fees, some are free with their ads on the messages,
and there are a few that offer a free trial for a week to a month, and start a monthly fee. It is best to do a search for

"autoresponders", and see what is best for you. I did find one free autoresponder that doesn't have ads on the messages, but

the site is ad rich with popups and such that can easily distract the visitor from the free sign up.

Look for a future post from me that will give more information about autoresponders and my recommendations.
