Exclusive sneak peek at Tyler's first eBook, read the 'Introduction' here

The following is an excerpt from John Tyler's new eBook, How to Easily Attract a Rockstar Following on Twitter (Even Before You're Rich and Famous). The eBook is available for immediate download by clicking here.


I initially set up my Twitter account in February 2009, after several months of reading various articles on the microblogging service and staring at a selection of Twitter pages I found interesting.

Everybody, it seemed, was getting on board and utilizing this unique service. Having blogged for several years, I became curious about the power of publishing short, 140-character messages to promote longer blog posts.

I fought signing up for some time, however, thinking this fad called Twitter was just something else I had to learn how to use that would soon fall into obscurity.

We now know that Twitter is far from being a fad. In 2013, Twitter's Alexa ranking placed it among the top 10 most visited sites on the Internet.

Twitter is a vital piece of your online efforts. It's free, global, and incredibly easy to use.

Shortly after signing up, I became frustrated at times with the difficulty of growing my number of followers. I would look at larger accounts and wonder, What is it that they are doing that I'm not doing? No matter how clever or insightful I felt my tweets were on any given day, I might pick up a follower or two every once in a while. I stayed under 300 followers for a very long time.

By stumbling upon the methods I teach you here, I've been able to skyrocket my follower count to more than 260,000 since that time.

People or organizations with large platforms already established outside of Twitter, or folks often featured in the media, don't have a problem attracting tens of thousands (or many more) followers on Twitter. Those of us who do not have access to that type of exposure right now must find unique or outside-the-box methods for generating a huge following.

Some people might argue that desiring a mammoth following on Twitter is narcissistic, but I highly disagree. Anyone who creates content wants a larger audience. If you owned a newspaper, and someone approached you with an opportunity to quadruple your readership, you'd jump at the idea. If you wrote a book, and someone offered you a chance to go from 10,000 copies sold to 100,0000 copies sold, would you be considered narcissistic if you said "yes"?

Of course not. Wanting to grow your footprint on Twitter says less about your psychology than it does about how you value your time and effort. If you feel your words have value (and they do), it only makes sense that your words reach as many people as possible.

Another reason you should want a large following on Twitter is the perceived value we ascribe to people or businesses with larger accounts. If you have 24 followers, and your best friend at school has 89 followers, who looks like thy are the more desirable person, whether that's right or wrong? If your small business has 650 followers, and your main competitor has 3,500 followers, you send a message that your competitor is more popular with consumers and a more trusted expert in your field. You don't want that, and it doesn't have to be that way.

That's not to say you don't have to concentrate on being the best person possible, or providing a superior product or service. You know how good you are at doing what you do, so it's time the people visiting your Twitter page see you as a leader.

As I previously mentioned, my account grew agonizingly slow until I started using the method I teach you here. My username hasn't appeared in the press or on other web sites (other than my sites) as a means of promoting it. But it's grown nonetheless.

An associate of mine years ago was floored when he followed me on Twitter, unable to fathom how I had so many followers. I think I only had about 150,000 at the time. "That's celebrity status!" he declared. I've never considered myself a celebrity, but I understand how someone might think that from such a large number.

You can duplicate what I've accomplished, if you commit to this process. If someone asked me to give one word that encapsulates how I've been able to do this, that word would be "dedication."

What I teach you to do here is easy, if you have the knowledge. Once you know how this process works, it's just a daily routine. If you stay dedicated to doing this simple routine every day (or several times a day), you'll grow exponentially over time, baffling your friends, associates and competitors.

Before I get started teaching you the actual process, here are a few things I'd like for you to do right now:

1) Get a global vision - I've build an international following using this method. Don't just think about how you are seen in your local community. I want you to think about how you're seen on the other side of the planet. There are literally thousand upon thousands of people all over the world waiting to follow your account. To grow fast, you will need to attract these people to your account in great numbers.

2) Identify leaders or competitors - Find several Twitter accounts that have followers you'd like to attract. This may be based on some common interest, hobby, or your chosen profession. If you are a small business, this is where you want to think locally. Jot down several accounts that attract followers you'd like to see following you.

3) Follow me on Twitter - I want to be your first new follower! If you follow me right now at @johntylertweets, I'll follow you back (usually within 24 hours).

Let's get started!

Now more than ever, she wants to be my realtor (and she's in Columbia Blue)

You remember my realtor, right? If the ultra-rich and well-connected are getting dressed properly and talking about the worldwide great success story, something exciting must be on the horizon!

Bookmark this site, or simply enter your email address on the right side of this page, and I'll drop you a note whenever I post something new. Click here to watch full commercial.

How do you celebrate the completion of your first eBook? An elegant meal. I microwaved that chicken for about two-and-a-half minutes, and then stirred the potatoes and heated it up for another minute or two. I washed it down with an ice-cold, Bud Light Platinum. That eBook is coming very soon. I'm going to teach you how to do this Twitter stuff! Enter your email address to receive immediate notification.

Here's a photo of quite possibly the coolest dude in the whole world. He's sings real pretty, and I really like that jacket. Nice shade of blue. The photo makes you wonder what he's singing about. Pain? Hardship? No, these are exciting times! Just ask the rich lady at the top of this post.

Gov. Perry of Texas tells Sean Hannity he's going to be on the border tonight. In the river.

If you ever need some fun on any given day, search online and see if Rick Perry, governor of Texas, has been interviewed anywhere.

Weirdness is pretty much par for the course when it come to the elected folk in this state, but we really have put the most entertaining at the very top.

Last night, he told Sean Hannity that the talk show host would be "down on the border, in the river" tonight. It wasn't just what he said, it was how he said it.

Hannity is on the Texas border tonight to see the horrible situation currently going on down there, with all those children needing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a ride home, in my opinion.

Do we allow minors to wander state to state, without adults, in America? No, we call them runaways, and we send them back to their parents or a relative. Which is exactly what needs to happen in this situation. It just seems like common sense to me.

Anyway, I need to get to a TV set as quickly as possible so I can see Hannity in the river.

Something BIG is coming! Paul McCartney dressed extremely well last night

When the great warriors begin to rise up in the right clothes, you know something big is on the horizon! Paul McCartney returned to the stage in New York last night showing solidarity for the cause. Sharply dressed, and I'm sure sounding fantastic, he dazzled the crowd with his only wardrobe change of the evening. "It's great to be back," he assured the crowd, returning from the hospital after a viral infection.

Meanwhile, more than 1,600 miles away in Houston, Texas, Deborah Wrigley, veteran reporter for the city's ABC affiliate, wowed the audience in a gorgeous Columbia Blue dress. She looked wonderful and appropriately dressed. Just like Paul McCartney.

I don't know where this girl came from. She just appeared on the news about a month or so ago, but seems to be on board with what the good people are trying to accomplish. She looks lovely in that color. Let's support her in her efforts to get the word out. This story is about a new reality show hosted at the Houston hospital I was born in and down the street from where I worked for years, so I'm looking forward to that.

Yes! The media has apparently decided they want the Houston Oilers back

I support that as well. Let's go ahead and get with the NFL to find out what the first steps are in the process to make that change. Thank you.

Houston police revive Texans excitement in city by dressing purse-snatching thug in team jersey

The Houston Police Department hosted a demonstration yesterday to assist women in defending themselves against purse-snatching maggots, dressing the thug in a jersey of the current local NFL team.

The communications department at the team must be loving this, with a local grocery store parking lot transformed into a crime scene yesterday. And the crooks? Here's a photo of them speeding away with that poor lady's purse.

We finally have Texans colors back on TV in Houston!

Her smile is so pretty, even when she's writing on a clipboard (and the Pope looks shocked)

Her smile is so pretty, even when she's writing on a clipboard! Write this down: "John must really think well of me." And keep that pretty smile on your face!

If I was to call KPRC consumer reporter Amy Davis, I might say, "Please find out for us what is so undesirable about the current Houston football team that would cause all these local and national reporters to wear the colors of a team that left town years ago." I can't put words in her mouth, but I can imagine her response would be something like, "John, you know the Houston Oilers will always be Number 1." And she'd be right.

Even Miya Shay, a reporter that covers City Hall for Houston's KTRK, is willing to go downtown in Columbia Blue. Maybe it's time to call Bud Adams' family and see if we can somehow finagle the logo and colors back from the Tennessee Titans.

Or maybe it's just time for some queso. I have no idea what these people are up to. It seems like they just try to act silly sometimes, right? I think you know what time it is it's time to get ill.

He's amazed or shocked, apparently. You can't really blame him. There is so much amazingness all around us every day. It's everywhere I look now. I constantly find myself saying, "Wow. That's unbelievable," or "My goodness, this thing has grown exponentially."

This is Fresh Beast. Her name defies her behavior at times, as she enjoys taking turds from the cat box with her mouth and throwing them on the carpet. Other than that, she is a pleasure to have around and we've enjoyed her presence immensely. Fresh Beast joined us at the house about a month or so ago.

Global traffic. I think people could be looking at this blog on every continent of the world in which there's an Internet connection. This is a screenshot from several days ago, but it pretty much looks similar every day now.

Melissa Wilson, a media contact from my health care days, looks absolutely stunning this morning in the color of a long-departed football team (again). When you consider how effective I was at finding the positive medical stories at an institution and getting those stories on the TV set (and what an absolute pleasure I was to work with), you must wonder why I'm not doing that today. I wonder that as well.

Who else is looking forward to a healthy 4th of July party plate? Let's all get dressed in Oilers gear sometime and get silly!

Her so smile is so pretty, even when she's celebrating with coworkers!
