Free Targeted Traffic with New Twitter Tool
As Google Adwords becomes less viable for your average direct response marketer, it only makes sense to look for alternative sources of targeted traffic.
After all, the more diversified your sources of traffic, the less any single source of traffic can negatively impact your business.
If 90% or more of your sales come from Google Adwords traffic… and a disgruntled employee decides to ban your ads from running… you’ve just lost 90% of your business in one fell swoop.
But if you’ve developed multiple sources of traffic — Adwords, Bing, Twitter, social media, organic search listings, backlinks, etc — then you won’t have so much to worry about if the Google gods suddenly cut you off.
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with a new Twitter tool that helps drive free targeted traffic to any page you want. Basically, the idea is to send personalized @replies to multiple users with a few clicks.
So far, my @replies are getting click-thru rates up to 60% and averaging around 30-40%. These are impressive statistics. It means that my @replies are extremely relevant. So relevant, in fact, that some people are even re-tweeting my @replies.
Here’s a real-world example from this morning…
Today I sent 35 personalized @replies using this new Twitter tool. Within an hour, 10 people had already clicked through. I can see this because I’m using bit.ly to track clicks. That’s a 28.5% click-thru rate so far. I’m sure this number will climb throughout the day.
Here’s a screen shot:
That’s 10 unique visitors to my site in an hour. And the best part is I didn’t have to pay for that traffic.

P.S. Just finished writing this post and I refreshed my bit.ly stats… now up to 12 clicks. That’s a 34.3% click-thru rate in a little more than an hour.
P.P.S. Back from the gym and clicks are up to 19 (out of 35 tweets sent), a 54.3% click-thru rate.
