Ok so there is nothing like writing an article, and making use of one of the most common spam headlines, just about. I mean anyone that has been on twitter more then a day has probably seen a update, or a @ reply, or DM that is trying to sell some secret package to get hundreds or thousands of new followers every day. Frankly they are annoying, but if you decided that my update was different then maybe you may learn the true secret to getting more twitter followers.
But then again as i have written before there is really no secrets, just methods, you have or have not discovered, and that you could potentially discover. But anyway, getting more twitter followers is really very very simple, and is just matter of following steps and giving it time. Maybe you will not ever reach the heights that some twitter users have with millions of followers. However creating a network of valuable followers is not about following everybody.
What it comes down to is what sort of people you want to have following you. For most people this simply a matter of what people are with in your market. In reality while you may not believe it, if you are using twitter then you have a market. Now maybe that market is going to be family, or friends, or maybe it will be internet marketers, or bloggers. The markets may over lap or maybe not, but what you are tweeting about will really only be of interest to this certain market. There is little point having people follow you outside your market or there will be no value added to either yours or their experience of twitter.
So obviously you wanted to know how to get more followers on twitter and here is the X steps to getting more valuable followers on twitter.
- Find people who will want to read your tweets – this is done by searching them out, use the search feature, if you enjoy discussing blogging then search for it, if you are a star wars fanatic search for that.
- Once you have found people that are likely to want to read your tweets, follow them.
- Wait for them to follow you back – Yes this seems like a bit of a bummer, why should i have to wait. But seriously, there are few ways to speed up quantity, without losing out big time on quality.
- As people follow you, or even before, start conversations, find someone who said something interesting and respond to it in an interesting way. As you respond to people and enter conversations, there is a higher chance they will follow you.
- Don’t give up – Yes this method, takes time, yes eventually it will work, maybe not to give you 50 thousand followers in 30 days or anything to far out. But it builds a network of people who share your interests and who you are interacting with more frequently and on a deeper level, creating a better experience for everyone.
Maybe not what you were expecting, but i almost guarantee you it will work much better over the long term then, any of the systems being taunted almost daily that will grow your followers, exponentially quickly. While some may stick around purely because it is easier then unfollowing you, any that are valuable will be gone quickly.
If you don’t believe, i am my primary proof of this, in my first 30 days on twitter, i exceeded 2,000 followers. By using a system pretty similar to this. This is really the refined version to give the most benefit to everyone you may follow or who may follow you.
