PLEASE READ UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN
I am sure some of you have heard about TweetBig, a twitter management tool that promises to increase your followers and hits to your website. Many have read the canned reviews you find all over the internet however you have yet to read an actual real review of the product.
I participated in the 7 day trial that TweetBig offers. It was only a buck so I decided to give it a shot. Here is my review.
The Promises From TweetBig
- Gain several thousand new followers every month (750+ in only 4 days)
- Increase your website traffic (400 new visitors DAILY)
- Make getting followers really simple and really quick
My TweetBig Test
These are some big numbers and big expectations. I decided to give this a test using both 708 Media’s main Twitter account @708Media and also a brand new experimental account called @708experimental. I tested the product for 5 days straight (allowing 2 days for cancellation procedures).
My TweetBig Results
- Increased @708Media by 379 followers and @708Experimental by 360 followers.
- Did not increase traffic from twitter to my blog or to any other tweet I made
- As for being quick and simple, see my detailed review below
My TweetBig REAL Review
TweetBig has a pretty simple interface. When you sign up, a video walks you through the setup of your account. It explains all things you will need to know in order to use TweetBig.
You add followers to you account by adding 15 people you would like to piggy back off of. These people are those that you feel would have followers you want to target. Once you add them, it suggests to you people that you can follow. It also provides you a percentage that tells you if they are more likely to follow you back. See image below.
This tool is simple to use. You also have a feature that allows you to set your account to be managed. This will automatically pick and follow people that are following those that you piggy back.
There are other tools that are simple to setup such as scheduled tweets, automatic unfollow those not following you after a certain number of days, auto follow back, keyword search and a few other tools that were really not that helpful.
It could have just been my luck, but for the 5 days that I was testing this product, there were many issues with the site not working correctly.
Many times, it would stop following those that were in the que to be followed. I often fixed this by logging in and adding a few more to the que. It was almost as if this jump started the process again. A few times there were PHP errors that would pop up. I would have to wait and come back in after a few hours.
Because of the way Twitter is setup up, it does not mass follow a group of people quickly. Once you add them to the que or select managed, it slowly adds them throughout the day. It seems when it is in a good mood it will run at about 50-75 and hour. Most of the time, it would slow to a crawl adding only 2-10 an hour taking breaks in between before it ads just a few more.
It seemed more as if this product was still in beta testing than an actual finished product.
Above, I told you about my results from TweetBig which were about an average of 370 followers per 5 days. I did not receive the 750 new followers in 4 days as said in the video, however the software did not work about 30% of the time.
Still, I must say that the 370 followers were targeted followers. 370 followers averages out to about 74 new targeted followers a day or 2220 followers a month.
Even those these followers were targeted, I did not notice an increase in links I posted to twitter. This however could be as simple as my links I posted during this time were just not interesting enough. Who knows, the time to test this was too short.
TweetBig charges you 1 dollar for a 7 day trial and after that, TweetBig costs $17.95 per month.
As you have read above, TweetBig does not fulfill all of its promises, however it does fill some. As stated above, you easily can add 2000+ followers a month to you Twitter account using TweetBig, however, it is not fully automated. I told you about the constant errors that I had during the test. If I were not to stay on top of these, I would have not hit the numbers I did.
As for price and bang for you buck. I would definitely recommend signing up for the 7 day trial. It costs you almost nothing and you can see how it works for your self and if it is worth keeping for you. I, myself, did not find it to be worth the money they are charging since TweetBig runs off the concept of just following a mass amount of people hoping that they will follow you back. I feel that for the same amount of time I spent on TweetBig, I could have gone to a Twitter directory such as Twellow and just followed everyone in the same category as me. I could have also went and followed all those that were following the 15 people that I added into the piggy back system. As for the unfollowing and auto follow back, there are other free tools that can do this for you. The most I would pay for this product is 5-7 dollars per month.
This is my opinion and I really encourage you to form your own opinion of the product yourself. Be sure to allow yourself at least two days to cancel as ClickBank states that cancellations can take 1 business day.
How to Sign Up
As stated before, this is a real review of the product, however since I do have bills to pay, I will ask if you found my review helpful, please use my affiliate link to sign up for your trial of this product. You will notice that I did use this affiliate link throughout my article however, I have kept my results real and told you my true experience.
How To Cancel TweetBig Subscription
It seems as if TweetBig has stopped working. It has not worked for the past 3-4 days. This could be due to the horrible way that the owner runs business or that they have gone belly up. It seems as if the owner of this product does not provide immediate support to his product which tells me he could just be out on vacation and choosing not to deal with the problems. Either way, this is not a product worth paying a dime for. Even a free product is not worth it if it does not work. Until issues are fixed, I recommend NOBODY to sign up for this trial or subscription.
This product is totally worthless. It has potential, just needs someone to run it that knows how to set proper pricing and how to fix it when it does not work.
