The following blog will outline exactly how I won two new contracts worth £7,920 as a direct impact of marketing myself on Twitter over a 3 month period.

Clear, actionable steps will be outlined for you to follow to help achieve similar results yourself.

The two contracts were the result of two clients finding me and writing to me on Twitter (see the two Tweets below). To ensure these contracts were purely won through my Twitter activity, I confirmed with each client that they had found me as a direct result of my Tweets.

yyyy yyyyy


Before I go full steam ahead with the actionable steps to follow, let me provide some of my Twitter stats for the last 51 days. This will provide you with some tangible evidence to demonstrate the response I receive from my Twitter activity.

As you can see from my Twitter follower statistics below, although I have been on Twitter since 2013, I didn’t start marketing myself and growing my following until 2/2/2015.


Twitter’s built in Analytics only provides Tweet data from the day that you sign up for their Analytics. Therefore, the following statistics will cover the last 51 days (from when I signed up to Twitter Analytics).

    •  3,235 (+1376) Twitter Followers
    •  144.4K Tweet Impressions
    • 2.2% Engagement Rate
    •  294 Link Clicks
    • 558 Favourites
    • 109 Replies

I cannot emphasise how important this is. The larger of the two new contracts was triggered by a customer contacting me as a direct impact of the strategies used to grow a targeted Twitter following.This strategy involves using a clever tool called Tweepi.

After meeting one of my new ‘Twitter clients’ and winning a contract , they repeatedly commented on how they loved my enthusiasm for their business. I didn’t think that I was being overly enthusiastic, I was just excited about their business.

This shows the importance of being genuinely enthusiastic about wanting to work with a client. If you love your job it will be a huge factor driving your success. Demonstrating real passion can be contagious – if  you are as motivated to see a client succeed as much as they are, it is surely a recipe for success!
