5 Surefire Ways to Gain Twitter Followers
For an entrepreneur, trying to build a following on social media sites like Twitter can be a scary task. You see all these other people in your niche with hundreds, if not, thousands of followers and you just want a piece.
It can be easy to just give up when you wake to only one new follower. But, what if I told you there were simple guidelines you could follow to grow your following and your brand recognition?
Luckily for you, there are 5 surefire ways to gain Twitter followers and catch up to others in your industry.
1. Stay Positive
Nobody likes negative people, especially on sites that they go to relax a little. In fact, case studies show that positive people tend to have more followers.
You should keep your Twitter feed free of negative comments or complaints. Instead, focus on tweeting when your feeling good and ready to share stuff with the world.
2. Tweet Quality Information
Even though you had a delicious sandwich for lunch today, your followers don’t care. In fact, you’re probably shying away possible followers when you regularly tweet generic things about your everyday life.
The majority of people who come to Twitter are looking for good information and resources that they can enjoy and retweet. So, try posting articles that relate to your industry. You should also comment on the article you’re tweeting out. Just remember, keep it 140 characters or less.
3. Tweet News Before It Becomes Big News
This can be a hard thing to do but if you happen to come across breaking news that was just posted 10 seconds ago, don’t think twice, just tweet it. Now of course you’ll want to make sure it’s from a reliable source because you don’t want a reputation as a false news tweeter.
4. Connect With People
Building your network is super easy with Twitter. You can meet some great people and end up building an amazing network of like-minded people. If someone posts something that you like or agree with, shoot them a tweet. And if you don’t agree with them, shoot them a tweet as well. The main idea here is that you need to make people recognize you as more than just a Twitter account.
5. Promote Your Account Everywhere
If you have a website, put links to your Twitter profile on there. If you are making business cards, slap your Twitter handle on there. Bottom line is that anywhere you can promote your Twitter account, you should. (By the way, you can follow me here.)
