What’s the big deal with having followers on Twitter? I have been asking myself this question for a while. What use does having a large number of Twitter followers have? What are some ways to gain more followers?
Users and business owners who want to use Twitter as a professional marketing platform all ask these questions.
Of course, everyone wants to have more Twitter followers. Everyone desires that their updates be read. Creating a stellar profile is not challenging; you must know how to do it. The most significant factors are your identity and your use of Twitter, not how you tweet or say in your posts.
There are a ton of articles on how to increase your Twitter following. Many of them instruct you on how to add value to your tweets to gain more followers.
I think you don’t need a million followers to advertise your business online. Why? Considering that practically every person on the list of Twitter users with the most followers is a celebrity. Those people did not create their Twitter lists from scratch! No way! Before Twitter became well-known, these superstars spent years growing their fan base! As a result, when they joined Twitter, they already had a large following due to their fame.
You might ask, why shouldn’t I aim to amass millions of followers like those celebs?
Not that you should not receive millions, mind you. You need quality followers, is what I’m trying to express here. In other words, you don’t necessarily need every Tom, Dick, and Harry to be a follower on Twitter; instead, you need people who fit into your target market and are drawn to the goods or services you have to offer. Now does it all make sense?
This does not imply that you cannot create a focused Twitter list if you are not wealthy and well-known. No. It’s not about what you tweet but how you use Twitter. Therefore quality is essential.
There is no right or wrong way to utilize Twitter, in my opinion. But here are a few instances of things I do personally that can assist you in gaining more fans:
Think of your Twitter profile as a mini-website or blog:
If no one is viewing your website or blog, what good are they? That is why we work so hard to promote our websites and blogs daily, am I correct?
What would you say if I told you to treat your Twitter presence the same way you would a website or blog? In other words, you should promote your Twitter account like you would promote your website or blog. So, you will have more followers the more traffic you drive to your Twitter profile.
But once more, like I just said: QUALITY! Hence, the more specific, the better for you!
It seems like everyone is aware of this. Unfortunately, a lot of individuals fail to see this crucial fact. Instead, they focus on less significant issues, like how often people use Twitter.
But, as I said, it depends on your Twitter usage. Sending traffic to your profile is, therefore, crucial.
You use a giant net and spread it out as far as possible when fishing to catch as many fish as possible. Similarly, if you want to grow your Twitter following, constantly try to drive traffic to your profile.
You should therefore provide some form of incentive. Why would someone go to your website or blog? People are seeking gifts. Who would follow you on Twitter and why? What are the benefits for your guests? Apart from your friends and family, everyone wanting to follow you on Twitter would most likely anticipate receiving some reward. Hence, it would be best to consider offering gifts on your Twitter as you do on your blog and website. Anything may, be it—a free paper, a case study, a guide, or anything. Providing that your visitor or followers will gain something from it.
The exciting part is now: how would you draw users to your Twitter profile?
I’ll share some advice with you that has proven effective for me:
– Create a creative, eye-catching banner ad and publish it on your blog, website, forums, and other online spaces to draw users to your profile.
– Include connections to your Twitter account in your blog and forum posts.
– Consistently put a link to your Twitter profile in your forum signatures.
– If possible, display your Twitter updates on the side of your blog’s page. Some blogs, such as blogspot.com, permit that. (Google)
– Develop your ability to pitch Twitter influencers on items pertinent to your site’s audience.
– Get your followers to share your profile with their friends and other users once you’ve established a rapport, and offer to do the same for them.
Following other Twitter users is another approach to gaining more followers. But, you must proceed with extreme caution since you risk being flagged as a spammer.
Let’s go over this technique in more detail:
Many succeeded with this approach when Twitter was “the new thing.” People are now more conscious of spammers, and various tools, such as Twitter Blacklist, have been created to assist users in chasing spammers off of Twitter.
Most Twitter users don’t like it when you follow them only to broadcast your updates without getting to know them.
My recommendation to you is to start by establishing an online presence if you want to amass a sizable Twitter following. Provide guidance, freebies, advice, tutorials, etc. Engage in regular blogging. Consistently provide new, updated information. Online knowledge exchange. After that, people will begin to follow you without your asking. People will start subscribing to your blog and following you on Twitter because you provide value. They know you are the real thing by the time that happens because you have already established your online credibility.
