Ever wonder how to build up your followers on Twitter?
Believe it or not, its actually pretty simple. We managed to pick up 100 new followers in one day when we decided to go nuts on Twitter. Here are a few tips for building up your followers on Twitter:
1) Tweet Often
More tweets about various topics will help your profile show up in more search results when users on the web search for specific terms. This is an easy way to generate traffic to your profile and get new followers.
2) Follow Back Users that Follow You
Unless you are some type of super celebrity, most people that follow you are looking for a follow back and may unfollow you within 24 hrs if you fail to follow them back. Following others back when they follow you is the easiest way to maintain Twitter retention of followers over the long haul.
3) Reply to Tweets that You are Mentioned in and Give Shoutouts to New Followers
If someone mentions you in a Tweet, give them a shout out in a Tweet of your own. See if you can even get a few conversations going with some people. Not only is it a lot of fun, but it also keeps you visible on their profile.
It is also a good idea to give shout outs to all your new followers. While it might get tedious, this is a great way to reward people for following you and will help retain most followers.
4) Post Something Funny
If you can learn to be a hilarious Tweeter, it will be an invaluable skill. Not only will you have fun in the process, but you will also start to get re-tweeted. More re-tweets means more visibility and more followers.
5) Post a Tweet That References a Major Trend
On the right hand side of your Twitter profile, there is usually a list of major worldwide trends. Take advantage of this by referencing a major trend in a Tweet. One of the best ways to generate tons of followers is to take a hash tag that shows up as a worldwide trend and post a funny Tweet.
For instance, let’s just say that #yomamma is trending worldwide with a streak of “Yo Mamma” jokes. If you post something like:
“Yo mamma is so fat that she put a grocery store out of business #yomamma”
“Yo mamma is so ugly that she made 10 people run for cover #yomamma”
One funny Tweet like this might make 1000 people bust out laughing and could get 50 followers from just one hilarious Tweet.
If you use these strategies to generate followers on Twitter, you can easily generate 100 Followers A Day and will have a lot of fun in the process. Happy Tweeting!
