How do you get Twitter Followers

by hustlinsmoke 13 replies
Hi, my first thread lol.
Ok just opening a discussion on twitter followers and see if I can get some tips or maybe even give one.

I am a firm believer in the power of twitter and social media. I always create my accounts on the social scene and ping.fm them. I always use twitter and the rest to market myself. Each of my projects get there own seperate twitter account. This is tedious since you have to have followers to use it effectively.

Now, I have thought about using software but have not. The way that I get twitter followers is very simple. In that I find a twitter account for that niche that has the most or what I think is the most followers already and I follow them and there top followers. In this way I see an explosion in my email usually within a few hours.

Let me know the best way that you get followers and if twitter works for you.

    the only twitter marketing that works for me is : don't spam people!

    spamming people will decrease your conversion and even no conversion.. you can automate to build accounts, and automate with software, but just do the main thing of social media: interact with people ...

    interaction will increase responsiveness of your followers .. they'll hear your recommendation. give them value. just old ways of marketing.. it's effective as long as you market to human

    Another good and widely known method is to use Twitter Directorries like Twellow. You can drill down by the Category, Niche or Country in such directories and start following such users.

    Also, nothing helps more in getting people to follow you/follow you back than a Twiter profile which gives out useful information. If your tweets are good, you should not have a major problem getting targeted followers.

    Also, you can encourage your existing followers to retweet some of your tweets - and in this way gaining more exposure from those following your followers.

    One way to get good number of follower is to find a major influencer in your niche and send him a reply (@twitter), but for this strategy to work you need to create a very powerful twitter message. If you cannot do that hire someone specialized in doing that.

    By replying to an influencer (or major hub) in your niche you will be exposing your tweets to thousands of twitter users, and if the tweet is interesting a good number of people will check your profile and may follow you as well.

    To make this work, you need to have a series of good tweets in your timeline. Try it. It works

      In the past, I have used Twiends.com it's not black hat, but may be gray hat.

      This network has you "friend" fellow Twitters and then you are "friended" as well. You can easily gain 15 - 20 followers in a day.

      The only issue I had with this method... and the reason why I stopped is, you receive too general of followers. If you are trying to focus on a specific niche, you will get a buffet of followers that may not be interested in the product or service you are promoting. Which weakens your conversion rates.

      Cheers!

    If you’re doing any kind of marketing on Twitter, the simple fact is that at some point you’ll want to know how to get more Twitter followers to increase the base of people you’re marketing to and in the end, earn loads more cash. After all, that’s why we’re doing this, right?
    Short of simply buying followers from company, there are a few other ways you may wish to look into when it comes to this kind of thing, though some work much better than others. In this article, I’m going to share with you the finer points of getting up your follower numbers a bit of a rise and which points work better than others.

    I use Tweet Attacks PRO for my Twitter marketing (which costs money)

    But they have a free version if you just need it for following/unfollowing.

    Tweet Attacks PRO - Drive THOUSANDS of unique TARGETED visitors to any website.

    Scroll towards the bottom of the page and download the free version.

    Then to teach you how to use it, here is a tutorial that I made awhile back. It explains how to use the free version:


    Also, like someone else said, use Get Twitter Followers | Directory & Location Tools to find the top competitor's accounts for whatever niche/keyword you are trying to build followers for.

    Good luck!
