Twitter has quickly become a major player in the marketing business, and the social world. Although its possibilities to connect with others and reach an audience are endless, often people do not know how to go about doing so. Buying followers and likes is often a tactic used and is not only unethical but also does not expand your business or message whatsoever. This is because the followers you purchased are robots and fake accounts, not people with a genuine interest in what you have to offer. The best way to accumulate genuine followers on Twitter and have them engage with you is to do so organically.
1. Be consistent:
Posting consistently, putting hashtags to good use, and promoting your page all on a regular basis will help accumulate followers tremendously. If you only post once a month, chances are you will not gain any followers whatsoever (what’s the point in even having a Twitter handle if that’s the case?). But, if you post quality content on a regular basis and use relevant and trending hashtags in your posts, users will get attracted towards your profile. Be careful, though, you only have 140 characters to work with and do not want them all to be wasted on hashtags. Use them sparingly and where appropriate.
2. Be engaging:
When you receive a notification showing someone has followed, mentioned or messaged you, be sure to return the favour! Reply to their Tweet, check out their profile, or follow them back. This shows your genuine interest in your followers and what they have to say. As a result, it encourages engagement and interaction from them, as well. Also, your profile may pop up on their followers’ “Who to Follow” list based on your interaction with them! Even if a user does not yet follow you, mention them in a Tweet, favourite one of theirs, or follow them. This sparks their initial curiosity into what you have to offer, resulting in a follow or mention back!
3. Interact with influencers:
Influencers play a huge part in expanding your message and brand with a larger audience. Their following, success and revenue can help tremendously in trying to engage with your target audience. To engage with the influencers, strike a conversation with them on Twitter, promote their message or content, and they can mention you or promote yours in return! This way, their larger following will take notice of you and interest in what you have to offer. Building relationships with influencers will not only help promote your Twitter tremendously but will accumulate long-term benefits.
Organically working to acquire genuine followers and interest in your content is not as easy or quick task as purchasing followers. But it is the best possible way to gain an authentic interest and engagement for your work. By doing this, you will begin to see a steady increase in followers and engagement, and in no time, promoting your Twitter won’t be an issue at all! So, login to your Twitter account, prop up your feet and get started, my friend!
