Guess who is the Most Powerful Woman on Twitter in the UK?
This would suck as a punchline if the answer was anything other than 'me' so I won't disappoint you. Yep. These things change all the time but, today, I am the most powerful woman in my country according to Twitter Grader
How Did this Happen?
Before I found Twitter, my husband was made redundant, and I became too ill to leave the house. I was completely isolated, and living on benefits. It was totally humiliating, and I couldn't afford fuel to go out and network, even if I was well enough. The double whammy of my husband losing his job, and me losing my health - in a recession - sucked. I felt completely trapped. Then I found Twitter.
The first thing I noticed about Twitter was how quickly you could build a following - way quicker than a blog. That got me really intrigued. Since then I've worked out how to create mad amounts of influence on twitter - more than A list celebrities even. I made it into a list of the 50 most influential women (including superstars and politicians) in the world! That's not a list based on the opinions of one person. That is a list based on the opinions of millions of people, all over the world.
The best part is that I now have a readership without needing an agent or publisher so I don't have to give away commission when my books come out. It has given me independence, a network, and friends all over the world. I've gone from being a complete randomer to one of the 100 most influential people on Twitter in my country, without needing to leave my house. All that... and it's cost less than an ad in the Yellow Pages.
You want some of that? At the moment, you are part of a tiny little group of people to whom I regularly hand out free training. I plan to do a bit more than that. I want to release an ebook/course about how to get real influence on Twitter. It's not just about follower numbers - I have more influence than people with many times my followers - there's a lot more to it than that.
In a little over a year, I've gone from being a complete unknown on Twitter to being the most powerful woman in my country, and the second most influential non celebrity person in my country on that network. I've done it without buying followers or advertising. People might like to know how to do that. What do you think?
I'm putting together a Twitter Influence training course, and I want to give extra bonuses to those people who are in the first 50 visible followers on this blog. If you want to know how I've gone from a twitter randomer to one of the most influential women in the world on twitter in only a year, leave your comments below. Once I reach 100 followers on this blog, I will give a special prize to one of my commenters, so tell your friends, and leave comments.
