Gaining Twitter Followers

How to gain twitter followers For many of us once we get onto the social media websites we get all caught up with how many followers we have. But as with just about everything in life it's the quality of followers that matters rather than the quantity of followers.

So if you want to gain Twitter followers that matter for your business then having a strategy around sharing great content to get more of the right followers will make all of the difference.

How to Get Twitter Followers

Getting Twitter followers can be easier than you think and take longer than you plan - especially when you want the right ones! The starting point is having great content (and a plan for your blog content makes a big difference!).

Here are 9 tips on how to gain Twitter followers:

1. follow other like minded people you want to connect your business or blog with online

2. follow the followers of the key influential people in your industry. Some might have big numbers of followers while others will have the respect of the few right people who will make a real difference in your business.

3. follow the key influential people on the other social media websites they are on like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn. There's a difference between connecting with them and stalking them! So keep a lid on your enthusiasm and gently build up the relationship.

4. comment and connect with people you want to build relationships with on Twitter for your business or blog by writing comments on their posts, retweeting their content and saving their posts you like the best as favourites. This all appears on their Connect view of Twitter. Some will follow you back, others will not.

Make your content marketing work for your business

5. keep a healthy balance in your following and followers numbers. If you're focused on getting Twitter followers people will understand that you're following more people early on than who are following you so keep things in proportion. If you are following 1345 and only have 16 followers it doesn't look good. Ease back. Take your time and work a little more strategically.

6. get active with trending Twitter hashtags on topics connected to what you're doing as this grows your profile and connects you to a wider audience. Twitter hashtags are simply keywords and keyword phrases and are ideal for sorting topics.

7. if someone doesn't follow you back within a week unfollow them if you are working more on your numbers game and follow someone else. If is someone that really matters to you as a key influencer take your time building up the relationship.

8. work with the auto follow tools like socialOomph, AddNewFollowers, TwitterMass and Twollo etc. I think to get the most from these tools you need to be feeling quite confident and comfortable with Twitter - they are for the intermediate to advance user let's say. Don't start with these Twitter tools, instead get to know how Twitter works first and learn some of the finer points of Twitter marketing. Twitter will penalise accounts they think are behaving in a spam like manner and that's usually by following and unfollowing too many people too quickly.

9. stay active on Twitter by using Twitter tools like Hootsuite and Tweetdeck etc as well as live Twitter posts and connecting with others. People are far more interested in following an active account with interesting content than a static Twitter profile that's on holidays.

Be really careful about taking up offers to get you hundreds and thousands of Twitter followers quickly. It's a great way to let trolls into your profile and ruin your Twitter account and reputation. There is no quick solution to gaining Twitter followers. Just as any good business practice it is done over time. It can take 6 - 12 months to get a few thousand followers with a small marketing budget.

The best way to grow a Twitter following is to have a simple plan centred around great content that you can regularly and consistently implement.
