Gaining Twitter Followers

35 replies
Hi All,

I am tasked with coming up with a plan to gain engaged Twitter followers for a corporate page with about 450 followers.

The company sells IT enterprise solutions (not the most exciting field), and I have been allotted 5k to do so over a time span of about 3 months.

Was wondering if it would be best to split test following ads and put all 5k into this, or if anyone had any other ideas.

Your help and suggestions are appreciated.

      Here are some simple things you can do to get more Twitter followers.

      1. Link all of your social media accounts to each other
      2. Add your Twitter profile URL to your email signature
      3. Create a few YouTube videos promoting your channel
      4. Do a Facebook live and ask people to follow you on Twitter
      5. Use Twitter paid ads
      6. Do a contest of giveaway and pick random winners from new followers

      That would be a good starting point.

    As social media twitter also get humongous amount of traffic, this is why this platform can be good for online business. So there are lots of methods which are really effective for get more followers, such as:

    -Cover photo and Profile picture should be looks professional.
    -Do tweet in a right time when audience are more, this time is ideal for get more followers.
    -Profile biography which gives a proper look of a profile.
    -@ message is really working on this site
    -Ask question with different people, this another way of get followers.
    -Need to be with niche, sometime people do their works but it goes for another niche this can hamper for get more followers.
    -Link profile with other social media.
    -Follow best users of your own niche.
    -Regularity is important here.

    Maybe I wasn't clear. But I have $5,000 to do this with and not really sure the best approach. Not set goal for followers in mind, just increasing engaged audiences.

    The way I see it, you have two choices.
    • The people who already use your product (software?)
    • Your sales people

    The only people that would care about your twitter account are either current end users or potential buyers.

    If it's software you're selling then focus on how to better serve your users, get them to retweet useful info.

    Again, If it's software related your sales people need to be involved. Piggyback off the sales people and their sales tactics.

      This hardly works this days, everyone is constantly posting relevant posts.

      Posting Relevant tweets based on Trends for the day would be a better idea

    Twitter has now tightened its privacy policy and cannot use third-party applications. I used to use different twitter plugins on my sites, and now they are all banned. All that remains is to pay for advertising on Twitter and be involved in various trend themes.

    Hi Jordan,

    Let me give you an effective way of increasing twitter followers with roughly 50 organic ones per day.
    1. First donwload Twitter Mass Follower/Unfollower Chrome extension.
    2. Next target IT solutions/services Twitter accounts.
    3. Click on their followers and follow them. Twitter puts a limit of 1000 followers per day and around 5-10% will follow you back.
    4. Clean people you follow but they don't follow you back on every 3 days. Click on your followers and mass unfollow everyone EXCEPT THOSE FOLLOWING YOU. You can find this setting in the Chrome Extension Options.

    Hopefully, that helps.

    Link to the extension here
    Additionally, Exentension for Retweets and Likes for increasing engangement.
    Also, Social Media Management platform

    None of the tools posted above would bring the engaged followers.
    Well I would suggest to use a child account method. Create like 5-10 pseudo accounts as real users and engage with your main account.

    Use Follow/UnFollow Method in those pseudo accounts to gain a followers base and Like/RT posts of main account. Make sure to target users who are interested in the niche that your main account is else you will only waste time.

    I recommend Twiends - it can get you a few dozen followers a week. And it's also compliant with Twitter policies.
