    Not to hijack the thread, but i watch SEO videos and so on and where there is a twitter address shown i go and follow. It puzzles me then, when "experts" in SEO only have 4 or 5 thousand followers and post the most inane stuff. On the flip side, check out "twit grader"; it puzzles me again that some people open an account and get 20,000 followers in a few weeks. I managed to build up a few thousand by tweeting relevant content, links to things of interest, retweeting good tweets and linking back to my blog. Check out twitter fall. Useful for finding people who have similar interests. Then click on their bio, go to their website and learn what they are interested in.

    See Who Is On Twitter, Get Followers : WeFollow Twitter Directory allows users to list themselves via interests, you can find people that way.

    I participate in various twitter chats and usually end up getting followers from them. Just start talking about whatever is trending with the hashtag, and post your thoughts. Also, many niches have twitter chats throughout the week. Here's a somewhat comprehensive list:
    List of Tweetchats By Day of Week One time, when I did a Sunday #blogchat, I got around 100 new followers, and 3 media requests. Time definitely well spent.

    Another way I've gotten followers is simply by following people who are in my niche and have interesting things to say...usually, (if they're real, and not a bot) they follow back. And, well, if they're a bot, I probably wouldn't follow them in the first place!

    Happy Tweeting!

      Adding up the profile in twitter directories like wefollow do really help. Another few things that people normally look while confirming the legitimacy of a twitter page is the profile and the number of people following you. Keep the profile clean with proper bio and picture and keep frequent updates. choose a niche and follow people in the same group. Once you have few people from the niche, you can start focusing in new niche groups, but don't cutaway yourself from the previous niche group completely.

      Bottomline:- become an expert in smaller niche groups first.

      @queenbuzzy - Your post definitely help me a lot. I am unsure though on how to distinguish if the account is used by a bot or not as most of them tweet informative stuff as well regarding their specific niches. Do you know a way to check if the account is "real" or not?

    Hi Anthuwin!

    At the start, you have to manually manage your twitter account. Start with your friends and family. Spend at least 2 or 3 hours a day to check the status of your account. Twitter is a give and take process. If you follow others, they will follow you too as long as you have great content along with your hashtags.

    Once you already set up a significant amount of followers, it's the time that you can use automated tweeting. However, don't forget to keep in touch with your followers everyday and personally answer their queries or opinions.

    Keep your Twitter updated. Use appropriate hashtags and make sure that your posting stuff that actually help people or maybe stuff that's interesting enough.

    If you don't have the time to do that then outsource it. Just make sure that you know the basics before handing it over to someone

    Buy followers from fiverr gigs to quickly build up your followers then follow people relentlessly that are in your niche. When people see the huge number of followers you have they are more likely to follow you back. Its worked like gangbusters for me. I have over 100,000 followers using this technique and with those numbers people think you are an authority in your niche.

      This is what you are going to do.

      Follow the users who works on the same industry. Just follow all user might be interested with your product then.

      Then create meaningful and engaging tweets. Use hash tags on your tweet for easy identification. You can add your link to homepage of your website.

      Interact with them more often. Follow back the users that follow you.

      Those are just simple things that you have to do. Don't forget to respond on when they mention you on their tweets. Keep your account active.

    first, share whatever you want to share. Some may find your posts interesting, some may not. Follow people that you think you share common interests with. You'd know that if their posts interests you. The more you get active, expect people to follow you back in time. And then, you can utilize your account in promoting your blog pages or whatever it is that you'd want to promote.

    Twiends. I have 32,000 followers on my main account, and if I can be bothered tweeting a dozen times a day, that might bring in 100 unique views, depending on what I tweet. It really works for me, and I don't bother with the other way of getting followers, following people and hoping they follow back, it just takes too long. I can help you get followers through Twiends if you want, by clicking the button to follow people, which is best done in combination with a seeds package. I can sort it out for you, for about three cents a follower, and get you tens of thousands in a couple of months. It moves faster the more you spend, but it's worth the money, almost no matter what your site is about.

    Keep these things in mind
    Twitter has a daily limit of 1000 following, and each account has a limit for 2000 following. You could follow more people ( more than 2000 ) but they have some ratio for followers : following.
    That means until more people start following you, you can't follow people more than 2000.

    Good luck!

      With over 79k twitter followers I can say engaging will bring you the most followers. That is the point of twitter, sure you can post a bunch of quotes, new stories and some humor, but that will only get you attention and in some cases take attention away from you if you do it too frequently or automate your account.

      Retweeting is the #1 currency on twitter. Retweet other people and that will inturn get you noticed and they will usually retweet you back or mention you. You can also follow the the top influential people in your niche and study things that they tweet, see how they're using it to captivate their audiences.

      However, I will tell you, as far as getting leads and sales from Twitter. It's not worth the effort. Sure, I've made some sales of Twitter, but you have to use the soft-sell approach and not be to blatant with only tweeting out recommendations. The conversions are far lower though because people are there to socialize, share and engage, not necessarily buy
      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[7379747].message }}
  • Well the key i think will be to follow people with the same interest, i mean no bots you have to follow real people... then once that is done you must post quality content without spamming to get as much interest from your followers as possible.

    It takes hard work and patience to be able to really get a good, quality following in Twitter (without resorting to buying or spamming your followers). My advice is to follow people/industries that belong to your industry, people who add certain keywords to their bio, or even those who follow people that you follow. Twitter also encourages that proactive culture of sharing. The more you link/retweet others, more follower will reciprocate this act. And that is exactly what you should do to increase your follower count.
    You may also do some self-promotion of your website or blog posts, etc., however, you need to be mindful of the fine thin line line that you shouldn't cross. Otherwise, you tend to to have an image of a spammer. Not only won't you get more followers, you will also annoy your existing followers and many might unfollow you.

    Make sure you post regularly, at least every 3 -4 hours. Also make sure your circle consists of people within your industry and target market.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[7393652].message }}
  • I would include the idea of following other authorities within your interest, twitter has a way of gathering many "like-interest" individuals together, so start there if you're just getting started.

    What also help me was going on Fiverr and selecting a few individuals to tweet my account out to their followers.
    Now granted, you want to find a targeted audience to your specific interest. If you do go this route, make sure the fellow you're asking for such service actually knows what your interest is.

    cheers

    Leading in social media is not that easy especially that in today's generation what's on trend is the more you have followers the more people will follow you. Very ironic! But since social media is a competitive world, you need to stand up! Maybe you can try approaching sites that will give you thousands of likes in a short span of time. These site will help you to lead on twitter as early as you expect.

There are tons of twitter tools that would help you track and target your market, post regular and scheduled tweets, track the links to your tweets, and also add followers. This will make it easier for you to manage your account and be regularly active in twitter. It also helps to send shoutouts to your followers, showing you are directly communicating with them

    Hi there!

    For you to improve in getting followers on twitter, you might want to consider these things.

    make sure you have reliable and useful content on your twitter account posted everyday.

    also, make sure that you're account is online everyday which interacts with people through posts to let them know the account your using is an active one.

    Follow people who have same interests as you, or in easy terms follow those you consider your target people.

    Following people may also result to them following you back. you can also try that. but then make sure that the people you follow are active everyday and that they have same interest with you because they'll surely follow back once they see you share same interests.

    Follow Posts and share content that are interesting and useful to those who already follow you, that way they'll love to see your posts every time.

    Make use of hashtags. don't just use it for the sake of using it. I mean, use hash tags in the most useful way. Hashtags can bring you more followers if you just know how to use it properly.

    Another thing, you can participate in daily active conversations in twitter so you can attract people. Once you interact with them and share great ideas, they'll surely follow you. and when they find out that you share interesting content, they might RT it resulting to more followers. People who follow them might also follow you.



    There are really a lot of ways on how to make use of twitter in the most useful way.
    Social media is one of the most helpful strats in marketing business and twitter is one of the social networks which I highly recommend that you can take advantage from

    Hi anthuwin!

    To be successful in Twitter, do not mainly focus on the numbers. Start with a small group who will really believe in you. Be Approachable! Make an effort to respond to your followers and communicate like a real person.

    Take note that Twitter is a give and take process. Learn how to appreciate others so that they will appreciate you. Build a reputation by giving unique and appealing content. Automation is given but the mind to produce creative posts is a skill that you have to work on and develop through time.

    Despite of all the tools available, it is important do not rely on the tool itself! The tool can't provide you with people to people insights. Lastly, Spend you time wisely! Twitter is not just the social marketing channel you can gain traffic from.
