- Collect the twitter handle of all these influencers in a excel sheet and save for use later. Name this file as “Influencers.txt”
- These influencers are the people you will be looking to follow and monitor on regular basis. While these people are not your target audience they can influence your target audience to bring business to you.
- Our aim is to closely follow these influencers, interact with them via retweets and reply to their tweets with the objective to gain exposure on their Twitter stream.
Research & Identify the keywords and #tags used in your niche
- Determine the key terms used to define your target audience eg. Website developer, SEO consultants

- Discover the keywords which your target audience is using to sell their services eg. SEO London, Local SEO Kent, Website designing.
- Collect these keywords and key terms in a excel file and name it as “keywords.txt”

How to find targeted Twitter audience using Scrape Box
If you want to learn Scrape Box in detail visit below links –
Pull up your excel file “keywords.txt”, containing the keywords. We will scrape target audience using the keywords which we collected during research process. Below I have shown with screenshots, how this process works:
Load your keyword file into ScrapeBox, by clicking custom footprint. After loading, click on harvest
As you can see above in screenshot 1; I have harvested business websites who is my target audience. Now i need to find their Twitter account to connect with them on Twitter and engage with them in some conversation.
This technique can be very effective, if used systematically as it allows you to reach out to your targeted audience.
To find twitter accounts from these harvested urls I use Scrapebox addon called “ScrapeBox Link Extractor” with the help of this tool I will get large number of targeted twitter accounts.
You can see the below screenshot 2, as to how I use this addon – You need to keep in mind that that we only need Twitter accounts. To ensure this you need to define in settings ‘ Remove urls not containing' Twitter. This way you will only have Twitter urls at the end in the report.
Once you run this addon, it will extract all Twitter urls for you, as shown below in screenshot 3-
In above screenshot, you can see numbers 0,1,2 mentioned under the heading ‘External'. This shows how many twitter urls were found on a particular page, now lets open and see what we got in the external link file.
Wow ! so I managed to get almost 800 targeted Twitter accounts, now all i need to do is, put them in Tweet Attacks Pro 3; follow all of them and grab their attention.
Tweet Attacks Pro need above username in a format, hence I will split username from urls and put username in a .txt file and save them in a excel file named “target audience.txt”

How to reach to the targeted audience and offer them your services
Now that we have set-up As Tweet Attacks Pro 3 and have it running, your account is ready for use. Now comes the most important part of reaching out to your audience and offering them your services.
This is a 3 step process.
Step 1. Landing Page
On your website or blog create a dedicated landing page for your Twitter audience, where you will direct them to know more about your business or service.
Make sure to invest enough time and vision in creating this page. Twitter offers only 140 characters to interact with your audience. Hence you may not be able to put through your entire sales pitch via tweets alone.
You need to design a landing page that takes your sales pitch ahead, and ensures that your audience converts into clients.
Step 2. Design Tweets
Create tweets to load into TweetAttackPro 3, which you can then set to auto tweet at specified interval. These tweets will target your audience, and talk about your service, how you can help your audience, and whats your USP.
Make sure the tweets are worded well, and do not sound like your own advertisement. Everybody likes to know what you can do for them, how you can help them, so design your tweets to talk to your audience's needs.
- Open the files “hastags.txt” and “keywords.txt”, copy their content onto a excel sheet in two different columns.
- Create your tweets in the 3rd column and make sure that you incorporate relevant keywords and #hashtags into your tweets.
- Do not go overboard with #hashtags, too many will eat into your tweet content and make your tweet look spammy as well.
- For every product/ service you offer create 3/5 different tweets, incorporating different keywords and #hashtags.
- Use professional link shortner service like bit.ly to shorten your urls. Shortening allows more space for your content in the tweet and also help you monitor how your audience is interacting with your links.
Step 3. Add News sources
Integrate tweets from the leading news sources in your niche, in your twitter stream. For this you will need to locate the most popular news sources in your niche, make sure you follow them.
You should retweet them whenever they mention anything that would be relevant to your audience. This will make your Twitter stream enriching for your audience, and they are more likely to interact with you and follow you.
Step 4. Interact
Twitter is a social forum, so make sure to do social conversations regularly.
Reply to tweet by influencers in your niche, this will improve your chances of being noticed by the influencers, and getting a mention on their Twitter stream.
And lets not forget your audience, make sure to follow them and reply and interact with their tweets. If you only focus on selling yourself, your customers are audience is most likely to ignore you. You need to integrate yourself with your audience, talk to them on their topics.
TweetAttacksPro 3 is a awesome automation tool, and if used in the right manner it can make your Twitter account your best friend by generating substantial leads for you.
To succeed it is essential that you use automation judiciously.
While Tweet Attacks Pro 3 is automating things for you; make sure you keep a track of what is happening in your account yourself as well.
Periodically go beyond automation and look into things personally. Whenever your any action generates a reply from a fellow ‘Tweeple', make sure to interact manually with him/her. This will allow you to lend personal touch to your automation, and keep a tab on things as well.
This is just one way of using Tweet Attacks Pro 3. Do share your thought on this post and how you use Tweet Attacks Pro 3 for your business.
