The Powerful Reason This Site Has 741,000 Links From Just 494 Sites

741,000 Backlinks / 1,700 Facebook Shares

When I started out online, before there was Facebook and Twitter, I would browse message boards (forums) on topics I was interested in.

Message boards back then allowed people to include images and links in the signature of your posts – and many still do – that people would use to share details on their life.

I Created Another Free Tool to Find Twitter Influencers

This one is great for Twitter ad campaigns

Today I’m sharing another free tool which is infinitely more simple, but has been incredibly valuable to me.

I can sum up what the tool does in one sentence: It allows you to find who any Twitter user talks to the most.

That might not seem very useful, but consider these three points:

  • If you can’t get an ‘influencers’ attention, you can get the attention of the people they closely follow instead
  • You can find other big players in any niche you may wish to connect with
  • You can run hyper-focused Twitter ad campaigns on a much larger set of people

If that sounds interesting to you…

The feedback was really positive, but my business partner Dirk let me know I probably should have explained what they do a little better.

I assumed most people would just ‘get’ the idea behind them, but he was right. I needed a tutorial.

If you missed it the first time around..

Here’s a link to the tool: Search and Extract Twitter Users.
