Best Ways to Increase Twitter Followers

by 43 replies
Hi,

What is the best way to increase twitter followers? So, I used their paid advertising but it's too slow.

An obvious way, to me, is to just spend the time to make my twitter page more popular, but how?

Please help.

    Always twee good content. I know this is hard with few characters, but make sure your are giving something. A good way to get followers is to follow people who are in your niche, then like and retweet some of their things. They will see that you are giving them something and are likely to give back. It is normal human nature to help someone who is helping you. I would avoid using "desperation hashtags" like #follow4follow or #followme or #idesperatelyneedafollower.... I made that last one up but you get the idea. Show you are a leader. If you are giving away something, like a free report or video maybe tweet that.

    - good profile description (why follow someone who has a goofy profile description?) - be descriptive, real & not bot-like in your profile, add a #hashtag or 2

    - good profile photo

    - good content tweeted (use 1 or 2 hashtags) - Hootsuite is great for scheduling tweets

    - pin a good tweet to top of your twitter feed

    - follow the followers of those in your niche (I use crowdfireapp but you can follow & cherry pick their recent new followers). *****You also will get a higher followback ratio if that person also is actively following people themselves & their recent followers were following them back. Searching @theirname & seeing people saying "thx for the follow", "thanks for following" will help identify those people. You regularly can go back to these "fishing holes" which are productive in finding new followers who are "real people". Following bot/fake accounts are worthless.

    - follow those using keywords/hashtags in your niche - especially buy keywords (buy, shop, shopping, order, need... whatever product/service you have - I use crowdfireapp but you can use twitter search as well)

    Don't bother buying followers IMO as you can do a better job yourself doing some of the above.

      Does using hootsuite really that helps? Because i can't see the urgency of using social media account related to raising followers. I saw blog posted by buffer and some blog similar to it, but really? does it matters?

    Perhaps try and get retweeted by a large account. And of course make sure the content itself is good.

    Best suggestion would be to create a well built profile, Tweet content that are appropriate to your niche and dont spam instead post relevant content and also post tweets from competitors and bigger accounts.

    Follow users who interact on the content of your competitors and authority accounts.

    Interact with people and tweet good content about your niche. You're lucky if you'll get retweeted by big accounts. If paid advertising didn't work, probably the best and instant way I can think of is to consider using services like BuyRealMarketing.

    Optimize your profile - have a great photo and a bio. Find Influencers in your niche or with the same interest. Follow them and their followers. Increase your followers and don't forget to unfollow those who don't follow you.
    Share original content and sourced content in a 60/40 ratio. Tweet at least twice every day. Engage in conversation with other twitter users even when they don't follow you. Use a tool like sproutsocial to find what people are talking about in your niche or interest. If people tweet you, retweet them. Don't spam your twitter feed and don't send automatic direct messages. Nobody likes that. Be human and engage in real conversation. Over time this will lead to more followers.

    -Link your Twitter account for business purposes on your personal account (given that the latter has a quite long list of followers.

    -Always update your account with fresh, engaging and value content. It could be a link to articles you find helpful, motivational posts or etc.

    -Promote it on social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn)

    Good luck!
