Over the past 14 months, my Twitter account has grown from 150 to 24,000 followers. How did I do it?
First, the backstory: Last year I left a cushy job at Amazon to work for myself. But then I realized that my reputation only existed at the companies I’d worked for. I was practically unknown to the rest of the world.
I was determined to get some attention, but I was new to this kind of work. I had never posted on Twitter, never had a Facebook account, had no social media experience, and didn't have a marketing background.
I settled on Twitter as my platform for experimenting. Being new, I wasted a lot of time trying things that didn't work. But in that process, I stumbled on an approach that did work, and really well. And every other account I've seen that followed my approach has been successful at growing an audience from scratch and getting a lot of engagement.
In this video course, I'll show you how I built my Twitter audience, and how you can do it too. My Twitter account might be the most valuable asset I own, and there is no better time than now to start building yours.

Praise From Others
"I was stagnant at just over 4,300 followers since 2014 when I sold my business and no longer used twitter for it. Since implementing some of your advice I started making more connections and have had great conversations. I broke 5,000 followers today. 😊"
"This product works too. Focused on building credibility this week and got 1000 new followers."
"I bought it last week, paused it when you talked about building credibility first. And immediately wrote a blog post that currently has 89 k views and got 416 new followers on twitter and 59 on gumroad🤯. And what motivated me was the first 30 min of this course!"
"I've studied three Twitter products and this was the best. Mostly because it doesn't advocate shady tactics, instead shows you how to grow a real organic engaged following."
"I just finished watching it, best investment I would say."
"This morning I purchased @dvassallo 2 hour course on how to build an audience on twitter. I’ve been going through it today, and updating my account accordingly. I feel like I finally have a purpose for being on twitter. It’s great to be a producer rather than a consumer here!"
"You are amazing, I just finished watching it and taking notes. It is a very interesting and useful course. Thank you."
"An excellent course. Following your advice I published my first blog today - my first step towards credibility in my area of expertise"
"I bought this—first time I've ever purchased something like this. It was because of *credibility*—I've watched your account grow and enjoyed your tweets.
But my favorite takeaway from the entire course...
'You need to be interesting in real life to be interesting on Twitter.'"
