I think that this is the first time I’m blogging on a Sunday in quite a long time, but I had this post drafted a while back and I did promise a friend to post it as soon as I have my Twitter background up and running so everyone can see it.
My Friend is Hugh Briss, and one of his companies is www.TwitterImage.com (Hugh also offer other cool designing services like the new service for YouTube backgrounds, blog skins and even logos).
I have first came to know Hugh through following some of my all time power twitter users, I noticed they had some brand new Twitter backgrounds, they all had one thing in common: A tiny logo somewhere on the design that says: Made By “TwitterImage.com”
So I headed over to TwitterImage.com and found out all of Hugh’s examples and clients, I think I browsed his samples for over an hour that day, they are very impressive.
Hugh had a very smart business approach, he offered a free background design for any power twitter user (back then the cap was 3000 followers) in exchange of adding a small note that it was made by TwitterImage.
A very clever marketing strategy, that made me apply for one, and I knew it would be a while to get it done since I applied right before Christmas time, and I was right. It took Hugh and his team about a month, and I am assuming it was because of the huge respond he probably got from his smart marketing strategy.
You can still get a free premium design if you have over 5000 users (That’s the cap at the time I’m writing this) or you can buy the same design for just $100 directly from his site.
To see examples, just go to TwitterImage.com or you can see the one he did for me here: Twitter.com/GuruOfSales
