Happy 17th Birthday to Twitter!
Here are ten tried-and-true methods to increase the number of people following you on Twitter:
Ensure that your brand or personal brand is represented in your Twitter profile by ensuring that your profile picture, header image, bio, and username all reflect that brand. It will be much simpler for people to locate you if you include pertinent keywords in your bio.
It’s important to maintain a consistent tweeting schedule. Your profile will remain active and visible if you tweet on a regular basis. Try to send out at least one tweet every single day.
Use hashtags appropriately: Hashtags are a great way to get people to discover your tweets. Make use of the appropriate hashtags in order to attract a larger audience. Make use of a variety of hashtags, both popular and less common ones.
Engage with your followers: To engage with your followers, respond to their tweets, like and retweet the content they share, and express gratitude to them for sharing your content.
Tweets should be retweeted and quoted whenever possible, particularly those sent by other users. This not only helps you build relationships with other users, but it also exposes you to the followers that those users have.
Tweet when your audience is most active; this will ensure that your messages are read. Find out when your followers are most active by using the analytics provided by Twitter.
Participate in Twitter chats: Sign up for Twitter chats that are pertinent to your field or the things that interest you the most. This is an excellent way to connect with people who share your interests and acquire new followers.
Share content of a high quality: Share content of a high quality that your followers will find helpful, entertaining, or informative. This will encourage them to share your content with their followers on Twitter as well as retweet it.
Conduct contests on Twitter Conducting contests on Twitter is an excellent way to increase engagement as well as gain followers. Make sure your competition is relevant, and that it offers a prize that is of significant value.
Spread the word about your Twitter account by mentioning it on your website, in your blog, and on any other social media channels that you use. Encourage the people who follow you on Twitter to share and retweet your content.
Keep in mind that increasing the number of people following you on Twitter will take some time and effort. Maintaining a consistent presence on Twitter and interacting with your audience should be a top priority.
