Sending a Direct Message to Several Twitter Influencers at Once

Are you looking to boost your Twitter marketing strategy? Just like in any other social media, Twitter influencers play a major role in consumers’ decisions. Getting them to speak for your product or service will certainly improve your brand’s exposure and multiply your sales. This tutorial will explain how to mass contact Twitter influencers using one magnificent tool of the PhoneBot robot. 

Despite being slowly pushed aside by the new generation of social media, Twitter is still a very influential and worthwhile platform. With over 206 million daily active users as of June 2021, and almost 60 % of them aged between 25 and 49, the microblogging social network offers the perfect podium to attract a new audience. An active Twitter account is as valuable as a well-designed marketing campaign, as it allows the company to keep their public informed while increasing the likelihood of reaching new customers.

Although setting a Twitter strategy is crucial in every marketing campaign, time may be an issue for new businesses. Even though a marketing campaign on Twitter requires no investment, as the main points of its execution demand a posting schedule and a hashtag strategy, nothing can guarantee the success of such a project. In spite of being practically free, the campaign could turn out to be a dramatic failure, and the company may never see those big numbers at the end of the month.  

Twitter Influencers Advantage

Since the goal is to give more exposure to the product or service, so as to engage a bigger public, wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could increase your audience in a simple and faster way? In other words, attract potential customers without having to go through all the marketing paraphernalia. This is where influencers come into the picture.

To fully comprehend the weight of Twitter influencers, you must take into account that around 40 % of Twitter users reported purchasing a product after seeing it on the platform. Moreover, 75 % of business-to-business companies actively use Twitter to market their products. Putting your product in the right place may mean millions of potential leads coming your way.

However, sending a direct message to numerous influencers one by one seems like a difficult endeavor. Luckily, the PhoneBot robot technology makes this challenge (and many others) way simpler. In some steps you will be able to mass DM hundreds of influencers without spending hours writing the same message over and over. Let’s dive into the details.

1. Create a List of Influencer Accounts

Before getting your hands dirty, you need to find your targets, which is to say, the influencers you want to contact. To do this, you can perform a simple Twitter search. Insert the keywords of your niche in the Twitter search field and then filter the results by “people”. For instance, if you are in the coffee business, you would look for every account related to coffee.

The above method could be tedious, as you may need to go one account at a time to check the number of followers. To save you some time, you could use the tools of platforms like Talkwalker or Buzzsumo. Their search tools will give you influencers based on your specific keywords.

Once you have found your targeted accounts, copy their URLs and paste them in a Google spreadsheet. Keep this document close, as PhoneBot will need it to configure your task.

3.2 Configure the “Mass DM Twitter Influencers” Task on PhoneBot

Once you have downloaded, installed and correctly activated the PhoneBot software on your computer, you need to create a campaign and configure the desired task.

Create a new campaign

You can pick any name you want. Remember that a campaign is composed of one or several tasks.

Name your campaign

Then choose the desired task. In this case, select “Twitter Influencers” under Influencers.

THE MESSAGE DAILY LIMIT

Once you land on the task page, you can start configuring all the details of the specific task.

The message limit per day is a detail that should never be disregarded. Although the Twitter DM daily limit is quite generous (1000), we strongly recommend keeping to the PhoneBot limit of 15 messages per day, so as to not trigger the spam alert.

THE TARGETS

There are two different methods to provide your targets.

The easiest and fastest way consists in a Google spreadsheet containing a list of keywords related to your niche. Just copy and paste the URL of the spreadsheet in the designated area. PhoneBot will then search for Twitter accounts with your keywords. Moreover, you can filter the targeted accounts by number of followers. Keep in mind that the more people following an account, the more potential customers you could attract.

The most accurate way is the one we covered before. That is to say, a Google spreadsheet with the URLs of the targeted Twitter accounts. Just copy and paste the URL of the aforementioned spreadsheet in the corresponding field. In this case you don’t need to specify a minimum number of followers.

THE MESSAGE

As Twitter only allows text DM, this task doesn’t support voice messages. Before writing your message, set a specific series (until reply or without interruption). Keep in mind that you can write up to 4 messages.

If you want to send just one message, fill in the first text field. To send only two, complete the first and second text fields, and so forth.

ENABLE TASK AND CAMPAIGN

Once you’ve created your messages, do not forget to save your configuration and enable your task.

Then, enable your campaign on the Campaigns page.

4. Run PhoneBot to Mass DM Influencers on Twitter

To execute the campaigns, you need to use the PhoneBot software already installed on your Computer.

You can run your tasks from any of the first two tabs of the PhoneBot software (see image below). The first tab enables you to execute your whole campaign, which is to say, all the tasks configured in a particular campaign; whereas the second tab allows you to execute one specific task from a campaign. Make sure to choose the right campaign. Then just click on “Run”.
