Today is March 19, 2011, the 5th day into the Twitter experiment and I do suppose it’s time for an update. If you missed the first installment, you can read it here.

Basically my strategy over the past few days has been the same as I mentioned on day 1 – I’ve simply been trying to follow as many related tweeters (twitterers?) as I can, whenever I have time to take a break from work. It’s about as much fun as watching a log rot, but I can’t complain. A major part of my strategy is amassing as many health conscious followers as humanly possible, something I think will be necessary since I’m not making use of a landing page or any other literature to pique viewers’ interest before they get to the part where they need to buy. Here’s my setup for following:
I learned something new today. Twitter allows you to follow up to 2,000 people with a certain ratio of followers. This is obviously to cut down on spam accounts, so I backed off on following until my number of followers catches up. Twitter doesn’t release the exact ratio, but it gives me a break anyway.
I have several hundred tweets scheduled through futuretweets.com at the moment. This includes about 2 dozen Amazon products as well as informational links to articles and health pages that people can use for education.
There isn’t much happening yet so I’m going to keep this short, but 331 clicks is very promising. My plan is to keep going with this strategy for a few weeks and try to think of some new ones in the meantime. Any suggestions would be helpful, so please feel free to leave comments down below, I’d be happy to hear from you.
