What is The Best Strategy For @mentions with Twitter

I saw the video on the @mention tool and was curious if anyone has had great success with that on Twitter. If so, do you mind sharing the strategy you used to deliver the best results?

Good question. I’m curious about this too, because I tried this and it seemed blatantly & publicly spammy to me. I tried to set it at 3 mentions a day spinning a phrase like “great feed so&so”. I stopped after 3 days because I’m running some semi-professional looking twitter accounts and they looked dumb with all the public mentions on them.

Would love to hear some different ideas about how this could be used.

Yeah…that’s what I was thinking

Haven’t use it in around 5 months due to lack of time, but I used that method for a long time with quite decent results. The way I did it:

  • add 10 twitter accounts and set all tools with very low settings so they appear normal.
  • scrape niche followers of what i was doing
  • create a campaign that sent 500 mentions per day with all 10 accounts, that means around 50 mentions with each account.
  • create a secondary campaign to post 30-40 normal tweets for each of the 10 accounts to “hide” the mention activity

500 mentions per day isn’t much, but when you do this X 10 times it’s enough, I didn’t want to get all accounts in trouble. Got decent traffic back and interested people inquiring about what I messaged, so this worked nicely, don’t know how it would work today since twitter changed a lot of stuff during the last few months.
