Best Way To Get Twitter Followers?

60 replies
Hello,

I'm interested in learning the best way to get Twitter followers in 2017. A couple of years ago I used to use a technique where you followed some Twitter followers and they followed you back. There was a limit on the number you could follow each day. I'm told that this does not work any more.

What's the best way? Take out ads? Any techniques that you personally use?

Thanks

        No, they can't see your tweets in the news feed. They can only see your tweet if they go to your page and read down through your tweets.

    You get twitter followers by:

    - giving value aka tweeting valuable, helpful tweets
    - engaging your RTers daily
    - tweeting regularly
    - not trying to get twitter followers

    I have 50,000 plus followers on Twitter. A fair number are engaged. Worked well for me, these tips did.

    tweet more and follow others. My account was dormant for a few years and after my site was launch, I tried to tweet about my niche and keywords. I just follow some influential account and waited if they will follow back or not but they did. Since then, more followers added me with the same niche. Tweet more....

    1. Post great content (doesn´t have to be your own, just good)
    2. Follow others (some of them will check you out, and, if they like the content, follow back).
    However: I didn´t have much success with Twitter in terms of generating traffic. So, bevor investing lots of time, check your stats if it´s worth it.

    Cheers,

    Search Twitter for the topic You want to Tweet About

    Follow the peapole that Tweet on thatr topic.
    Like and retweet thier Tweets
    Follow their followers
    Search for twitter lists related to the topic and follow users on the listsor that created them
    Create Your own Twitter lists and add users to them
    All these actions send notifications and will get some to follow you back

    But the main thing you need to do is share valuable content and keep it to one topic to get the most followers

    I have used this strategy to get over 23,000 followers on Twitter.

    Establish your voice and make sure that your message aligns with your brand.Also remember to tweet out information that either entertains ,educates,inspires ,the choice is yours. Lastly ,don't just follow back just to gain followers especially if the persons you are following back doesn't have common interests.

    I had 200k Twitter followers once that I built up through an automated system. I could send thousands of visits to a URL daily. So follow churning does still work, you just have to be smarter about it these days. Eg protecting your main account and phone verification etc.

    You could do a mass following. Following the followers of someone in your niche. Then wait a few days, and unfollow those who don't follow back. Not sure how engaged the followers would be, but it's one way for sure

    You should establish your voice . Don't jump around from topic to topic because all you would do is confuse followers and lose followers.

    Use twitters audience demographics insights to get a reading on your followers likes,dislikes,spending behaviours etc.

    Lastly, sign up for tweroid so that you can find out the best times to tweet for exposure and also for times when your audience is online.

    I will also suggest you to not buying Twitter followers. It's very easy to search how many real/fake followers you have on your account, so even if you impress some people about the number of your followers you still won't have a quality of followers. I recommend you to constantly share dynamic content like pictures or links where you can find interesting information.

    Using the 'follow/refollow' method I grew my account from 0 - 3000 in about two months. I've found that if I follow more than about 110 per day I get 'Shadow Banned' by Twitter, which obviously slows my growth rate considerably. Does anyone else have this problem or do they do the same to everyone?

    There is no easy way to get twitter followers unless otherwise you buy them. One platform is Viralcontentbee, where bloggers promote content of others and gain credits. These credits can be used to promote their own articles. You can see like minded people here and there is a greater possibility to get followers on twitter.

    Informative tweets like "How to ' "7 ways to" " Beginners guide" These types of tweets work well. But you would have to tweet use your hash-tags ,use your audience insights ,use tweroid to figure out what times are your audiences are likely to be online . Image post work well , you can also try posting motivational stuff too. Now that you have some information go ahead and get start6ed tweeting because that is the best way to learn what does or does not work.

    Recently I'm trying to grow my twitter account with followers and generate engagement. My tweets have generate a lot of favs and RT but I'm still stuck with the same followers, though people like my tweets they don't follow me.

    Do you think my follower number is an influence?

    I looked for a way to boost my social media and gain more followers, but I've never do this before so I'm not sure, what do you think about this?

    This is the site I found www.igetfamous.com

    The best method I've found so far was in the book 'How To Gain 100,000 Twitter Followers '. I've reviewed it on my website (under Reviews) but the basic concept is to use the follow/unfollow method. I've grown my own following from 0-5400 in the last few months using it.

    A few words on a useful practice on Twitter

    There are many services offering the sale of followers but you should not buy too much.

    Even if the social proof on the net is to have a large number of followers - it's not worth it.

    Having 200,000 followers (who come from far away countries other than yours) who do not engage with you ... it's not the best.

    "Focus on developing a focused and engaged audience who want to hear what you have to say."

    In addition, there are tools like Fake Follower checker from Social Bakers that you can use to see how many inactive fake / followers you have. I am not 100% sure of the accuracy but we can have at least a good estimate.



    How to set up your twitter account?
    You need to add a little personality to your Twitter profile; otherwise your profile will look like any other profile.

    Your Twitter profile should clearly identify who you are.

    A too simple profile will not help you, so there are some things you should do to detach yourself:

    # 1 - Add a single image
    Your profile picture should be an image of you if you use your name; people like to know who they are talking to.

    If you manage the Twitter account for a brand where various people have access to the Twitter account, it's a good practice to tag individual tweets so that people know who they are talking to.

    You could go further and create a header (a header image) with names and faces of those who use the account. If this is not an option you could put a link to an "about" page to your website listing everyone.

    # 2 - Create a unique Header
    Adding a header is a great way to have a Twitter profile that stands out.
    I particularly like Canva because there is a model 'Header for Twitter' which is the perfect size for this (1500 -- 500 pixels).

    # 3 - Write a good Bio
    Your bio is an opportunity to tell people what you are doing and who you are - it's a good opportunity to tell people why they should follow you.

    With very few words, describe what you like to do, what you can do to people.

    What is good is that by sending a good message you will attract followers with whom you will have common interests, and with whom you can connect in a more meaningful way.

    # 4 - Customize your color scheme
    Adding some color is a good way to add sparkle to your profile.

    You could go further and use colors similar to the design of your blog. This will give more consistency.
    How to earn more followers using his blog?
    Your blog may be one of your best assets for gaining more followers on Twitter, but there are some things you need to do to make this happen.

    # 5 - Add a Twitter button to your blog
    To develop your followers base you must remove all the barriers so that they easily find the way to your Twitter profile.

    The easiest way is to add a social network button or widget to your blog.

    One thing that stands out here is this use of the button in the tab that does not send people off the website.

    It's great because as bloggers, it's important to keep visitors to our blogs as long as possible.

    # 6 - Add a share button on your blog
    I still see a lot of blogs that do not have share buttons, so make sure you have some so that your readers can tweet your articles more easily.

    On my blog the share button is on the left.

    You have several plugins to have buttons: Add this , Flare , Shareholic etc.

    # 7 - Set up Twitter Cards
    Once you set up your twitter cards it will look like this:

    This is attractive and will increase the engagement which increases the probability of getting more followers. For WordPress users, the configuration is easy.

    # 8 - Put a link from your Twitter account in your Bio (on your blog)
    Adding a link to your Twitter profile in your bio author is an easy way to get more followers. You can see it in my Bio below the article. It is hidden (you have to click on the Twitter tab) because I do not focus on it. It's also worth considering this tactic if you contribute to other blogs in your niche - it can be great. Before you do this, think about the impact this will have on your other goals.

    # 9 - Put a link to influential people and let them know
    There are people in your niche / industry who have direct influence on your target audience. They have wide audiences to them and you can enjoy them. The next time you post a blog post, try to link to their article and let them know. You can notify them via Twitter, Google + or email - I tend to find that Twitter works pretty well.

    # 10 - Include Tweets in your blog posts
    If you want to draw attention to particular tweets, including them in your blog posts is a good way to boost engagement. First, you must have the code included in your blog post. To do this, click "More" on the button next to your tweet and click on "Insert tweet":

    You will have the exact HMTL code to add to your blog post (in the text section of your WordPress editor).

    How to have more followers on Twitter in a clever way
    The tips below will focus on how to use Twitter as a platform - it's worth looking into.

    # 11 - Avoid sending multiple tweets at once in a short time
    Sending a lot of tweets in a short time will make a lot of people do not want to follow you anymore.

    If you use different tools to send tweets, it can become a bit of juggling, but if you're paying attention to that and trying to space as much as possible - it will help you.

    There are tools like Buffer that will be of great help to you.

    Instead of using the tweet button multiple times, add your tweets with Buffer and they will be published on a calendar on a date of your choice.



    # 12 - Do not send tweets automatically
    It may work as a tactic to generate traffic or promote your other social networks when done right, but the side effect may be losing a few followers.

    And automated tweets that include the URL of the service used is worse.



    # 13 - Tweet More (with good reason)
    Tweeting to tweet is never a good idea and it's not because you tweet a lot that your followers will have an overdose.

    You do not have to focus on an optimum number of tweets because it really depends on many factors - make a rough estimate.

    There is a balance to be found here, and the key is to make enough tweets.



    # 14 - Interact with other users
    If you do not interact with other users on Twitter, you will struggle to have engaged followers.

    There will always be a limit to how much time we can spend interacting with other users, but it's well worth taking the time to plan new info and respond to your @mentions.



    # 15 - Follow the people who value what you say
    A well known strategy that people used to use to get more followers on Twitter is to simply follow other people who have similar interests.

    It may work well, but the chances of someone following you back are pretty low.

    Instead, try to follow people who already know who you are and who value what you have to say.

    How to do it yourself?

    You can do this by digging on Twitter to find the people who shared your blog posts.

    The only problem is that Twitter does not share URLs available, but luckily Topsy stores every tweet.

    Just type your URL and you will see everyone who shared your article:

    Topsy is a search engine based on Twitter and it also highlights influential tweets and tweeters.



    # 16 - Ask for the Retweet but do it sparingly
    Studies have shown that asking your followers to retweet can help increase your retweets by up to 4 times.

    The more retweets you have the better because it extends your reach and with every retweet you have the opportunity to gain more followers.

    Just add "please retweet" in front of your tweet.

    It works because you include a call to action for your followers, but it's important to note that a few people on Twitter find this really boring.



    # 17 - Vary the type of content you share
    Variety is important on Twitter.

    The infinite sharing of links in the timeline will not help anyone.

    Trying to upset things by sharing other types of info such as quotes and engaging questions.

    If you want to get even more engagement, try using a tool like Share As Image to create images for your quotes, all in seconds.

    According to one study, tweets with images are 90% more retweeted.



    # 18 - Optimize hashtags to use them as leverage
    Including relevant hashtags in your tweets is a good way to draw attention to you.

    The challenge has always been to find and evaluate these hashtags.

    This is where RiteTag comes in .

    RiteTag facilitates the hashtag discovery and optimization process with its convenient color coded system.

    There is also a database of +10,000,000 hashtags for you to search - along with the engagement indicators and other statistics.

    RiteTag is paid, $ 10 / month but you have 30 days trial.



    # 19 - Pin your best article / info in your profile
    If you have something to share that can be rewarding for your audience, try to pin it in your profile.

    As soon as someone visits your Twitter profile, he will see this pinned tweet that is a good opportunity to give something to your followers.

    Including an image is an important part and make sure that what you share is appropriate for your target audience.



    # 20 - Share content that interests your audience
    Keeping news as relevant as possible is a sure way to get more traction on your tweets (and increase your followers).

    People who want to learn a specific subject will follow you to learn more about this topic.

    You can find out which content interests your followers by using Simply Measured , they also offer a free report on your number of followers that shows the 10,000 of your latest followers.

    There are other tools that can give you more info like Twitonomy .



    # 21 - Share the content of others and @mention them
    One of the key steps to getting more followers is to help people and share their content.

    Sharing other people's content and mentioning them is a good way to be in their radar.

    This is an important step in the development of mutual relationships. The more you help other people, the more they will help you in return.



    # 22 - Plan your tweets so they're seen when your followers are online
    Optimizing the times when you share content is the key to getting traffic and increasing your reach.

    Free tools like Tweriod will help you discover exactly when your followers are most active on Twitter.

    Once you know when your followers are most active, you can start planning your tweets. You could do this manually but it's much easier to use with a scheduling tool like Buffer.
