If you want to cash in on new Twitter followers, send them an automatic message once they start following you. You can offer them a free eBook, pass on a link to your site or promote whatever else you wish. Currently (and by default), Twitter doesn’t offer any sort of automatic reply once someone starts following you.
The service used to do such a thing is called TweetLater and it’s completely free. Here’s a look at how you can set this up.
As you can see, you can set up the option to automatically send a direct message to new followers and you can specify what you want to say. This service directly links to your Twitter account
Another neat option that’s available to you is the ability to send out a future “tweet” to all of your followers on a specific date and set time. You could even wish everyone a Merry Christmas on Dec. 25th if you wanted to.
If you’re not already doing so, follow me on Twitter.
