Here’s what I do:
I go through my twitter account during the day – one time.
I look at all of the folks that have followed me that are new.
I always reply back with “Thanks for the follow!” for all of them.
If they appear to be a potential guest, I reply with the following: “Thanks for the follow! We’re launching a podcast series on system execution and would love for you to be a guest. DM if interested.”
“Thanks for the follow! We’re launching a podcast series on processes and systems execution. Would love for you to be a guest. DM if interested.”
I have gotten @garybizzo to respond and be my guest – he has 478,000 followers. Also @alanpittmd agreed to be on my show. For every 12-14 invites, I’ll get one or two that agree to be on the show.
