In this post, I will share how you, and really anyone can get more twitter followers that will share your stuff starting today.

[CAUTION] Before you start building a twitter following you must have answered these 3 questions?

  1. Who is the ideal audience that you want to connect with?
  2. What pains or concerns do they have?
  3. How will you provide value to make their world a better place?

 

This video shows this Twitter Tip in action:

 

7 steps to growing a Twitter following that will share and engage with your tweets:

  1. Find an influencer on Twitter who has a similar audience that you want to build.
  2. Visit their Twitter profile
  3. Look for a tweet that recently had a lot of engagement (likes & retweets)
  4. Click on that specific tweet to expand it
  5. Click on “Retweets” or “likes” to bring up a list of everyone who retweeted or favorited that specific tweet.
  6. Go through the list and begin following these people.
  7. Repeat with different tweets and different influencers

As you do this on a regular basis you will not only see your audience grow, but you will also see more people begin to share and interact with your tweets.

On average, I have seen between 10-30% of the people who I follow using this tip will end up following me back.

So do the math, if you want to grow 200 followers this week you will have to put in the time and use this tip to follow about 1,000 – 2,000 people. The good news is that this tip does not take up a ton of time or attention, you can even do it while watching Netflix if you want.

[CAUTION PART 2] Twitter is not too fond of you mass following people in a short period of time, especially if your account is fairly new. So as a rule of thumb, I do not recommend following more than 500-600 people per day. I don’t want to see you account get shut down.

You will want to do basic maintenance on your following as well to keep an engaged following. Use an app like Crowdfire or Tweepi to unfollow users who don’t end up following you back.

Map this schedule out and make it a part of your weekly content marketing process and you will be surprised how big your audience will become.

Be consistent and persistent and you will see results. :)
