Twitter is one of the few largest social media sites and I know you are not going to appreciate me for telling this because you are already aware of this fact. Now why I am talking about this today? OK, I am not going to keep you waiting to know this. I will be sharing few tricks that will help you get more Twitter followers. Twitter followers are considered important for many reasons. Some people might have heard of services or read some where and something like ” Buy Twitter followers” or “Get 5000 Twitter followers” etc. Now I can strictly tell you to stay away from such offers because these followers are good for nothing. Today we will be knowing about some real good methods to get Twitter followers.
Before we consider any method to get Twitter followers, we have to just understand that we are not gong to deal in numbers here but the social impact of the people who follow you.
How important in Twitter?
We will first understand that why Twitter is important. For many people Twitter is not a way to keep in touch with friends but Facebook is. Yes, Facebook is for sure a large network and bigger than Twitter but one thing is for sure that Facebook can keep you connected with the people you know but it can not offer you the exposure that Twitter can offer.
Twitter is used by professional to keep in touch with the people and information they need. Many people use Twitter as a medium to gain exposure and promote their products and services.
How to get followers on Twitter?
Now coming to the very important point and here are few tips that will help you find more Twitter followers but before you use these tips you can be rest assured that I do not have any Twitter plan that I use and so I do not have many Twitter followers but you can really have good number of followers if you do this.
Before going on your Twitter plan, makes sure that your profile is complete and you have a good photo, cover photo used in your profile. You can also optionally decorate your profile using custom background.
Service like the one linked below can help you create Twitter custom backgrounds.
Now is the time to look for few people who are like you. People like you include your friends, people with similar likes, people who do things that you do etc.
People who are well known get followers easily but you will have to build Twitter followers.
Once you start finding people to Follow on Twitter you can follow them. In most of the cases these people will follow you back. When you have few followers, you can start publishing Tweets that are meaningful, have links and are relevant to the topics liked by your followers.
You can closely follow the Tweets by people you are following and retweet few good of them.
Now you have to continue doing this regularly and you can use services like Hootsuite to manage social media profile including Twitter.
Now when you are building followers you have to keep in mind that you need to unfollow people who have not followed you back because Twitter has a limit on follower-ship and at some point (i.e. 2000) you will not be able to follow people if you do not have equal or more number of followers.
Once you effectively learn this following and being followed back you can start using the hashtag (#) in your Tweets. You can look for trending topics and create tweets that have the mention of topic/s using hashtag (e.g. #kenfolios). Tweeting about trending topics will give exposure to your Tweets and your profile too.
I have come across with many people who are effectively using Twitter and following them can really help you get more exposure. Adrienne Smith of adriennesmith.net is a good example. Harleena Singh of aha-now.com is also a very good example.
