Mastering the art of Twitter.

I set up an auto-twittering plugin early on so my twitter account had some activity but it wasn’t really very busy. I few people followed me but not a huge amount, despite the fact that I was updating from my blog a couple of times a day…. that changed this week when I revamped my pictures and realised that you’ve got to give before you can receive. So I followed a bunch of people and some of them followed me back… so I followed more and it kept working. I didn’t just add anyone, but anyone interested in VR, AR, Oculus, startups, Star Citizen, Elite and the like all were put in on my list and quite a few reciprocated.

Now I don’t think this is going to make me the the top hash tag of the year but it’s a start, I don’t have to impress everyone just the right person who puts me on the right blog at the right time…

I also made a strategic post to the Oculus board on reddit which resulted in a nice spike in traffic. I kind of missed the wave when my blog was discovered on reddit, the DK2 was released and then someone noticed my blog… which was buried under the DK2 excitement. If I had launched just a week earlier… :p Someone posted his site to the fitness sub-reddit and it netted him 140K hits in 24 hours!! Suffice to say if I got that much traffic my raffle entries would explode past what I think I need and I could begin the kickstarter the next day…

Speaking of which, I think it’s time to submit my kickstarter campaign for assessment. It doesn’t have to be complete but if you do it earlier you won’t have to wait when you’re really ready to launch….
