How To Get More Followers on Twitter
Add yourself to Twitter directories
This is one of the keys to getting more followers – make yourself able to be found! Sounds simple enough, and really it is. The two most popular and reliable Twitter directories are Twellow and WeFollow. By adding yourself to Twitter directories in the appropriate niche that applies to your business, you make it possible for people wanting to follow someone in your niche to find you! Make sure to choose the right niche, as well as including appropriate keywords in your description so that people searching find you, not your competition, and can then follow you.
It’s time to get comfortable with promoting yourself and your brand. Not in an obnoxious way, but in a way that shows your audience how you can benefit them, solve a problem for them or answer a question they need to have answered.
To use this to grow your Twitter list, include a link to your Twitter profile in your communication, whether online or offline. Add it to your e-mail signature, on your website, on your business cards, etc. Give people the information to make it easy to follow you and chances are they will.
Follow quality people
Finding and following people who are interested in your niche is one of the best ways to grow your list of followers quickly. Follow people in your niche. Follow people who follow your influencers. Follow people based on use of particular hashtags or keywords. Follow friends of friends.
In all of these examples, you are following people who are in some way related to what your area of expertise is. Many of them will follow you back, increasing your list of targeted followers.
Getting more Twitter followers isn’t rocket science, and it doesn’t have to take tons of your time on a daily basis. Taking a few minutes a day to implement the suggestions above will yield consistent growth of followers who are interested in what you have to offer. Keep it up, and you’re likely to wake up each morning to find you have new followers waiting for you to engage with them.
