What do you think of automated DM for followers on Twitter?
I've followed a couple of accounts that auto DM me on Twitter. What do you think about this? Clever? Inauthentic? Curious to know :)
depends on what about it: for auto DM from a tweet, its fine but for cold dms, totally cold
I think it is a great idea, especially if you are trying to develop a brand beyond Twitter and want to redirect the audience toward that.
automated DMs on Twitter can be seen as impersonal and spammy, especially if they are not relevant
Inauthentic and something no one but really, really old people still do. We all read right through it; it gets people nothing but being seen as a pest.
What do you think @luca_restagno @tiagorbf
@tiagorbf @maxwellcdavis it depends on the message and the relationship you have with your audience. I've been using it for a lot of time and with different messages. The first rule is: if you try to hide the fact that's automated, it'll look automated. So here's mine: --- Hey Luca here 👋 I want to say hi because I know you just followed me. Today I have a special gift for you: a Notion guide about Generating Leads on Twitter! 🎁 ⬇️ _link_ BTW, apart from that, this is what I’m working on: • http://hivoe.com — Twitter Leads Generation Platform • http://inboxs.io — Twitter DM CRM & Productivity Inbox Even though this message is automated, I try my best to talk to people in my community, so say hi : ) ---
I don't mind them honestly. I personally don't expect people who I've just followed to know who I am or what I'm posting about on Twitter (especially as it's me following them, not the other way around), so an automated DM is fine as a welcome and potential discussion starter.
It can be a clever marketing strategy to engage with new followers. It sounds like a good way to thank new followers and encourage them to further engage with your content or products. :)
