Are you interested in a managed service to grow your Twitter network?

Let's be clear on something. There are quite a few questionable 3rd party Twitter applications out there. They promise to grow your twitter account by massive numbers and at the same time, provide you with a substantial revenue stream. What they are really about is spamming the twitter universe in a shot gun approach and using your account to market their services. This is NOT what we are about! We offer a consultative approach to managing and growing your twitter network in a very targeted and systematic manner. We offer a real person to discuss your strategy, an application that will implement that strategy and a daily or weekly report which will advise you on the current status of that strategy. We offer a one week trial and an initial report for free and with no obligation to continue. It is that simple. We are experts in social media. So if you are a brand or networker or other professional user of twitter then contact me at steve@implu.com and we'll have a chat. And by the way, the proof is in the pudding. Look at our twitter network. Can the other apps or users of those apps say the same? Cheers, -Steve aka VP Business Development aka http://social.implu.com/t/implu
