Are looking for a way to get Twitter followers? Keep reading! In this article, I will share with you three proven strategies for gaining a large and loyal following on Twitter. Best of all, using these strategies won’t cost you a dime!
A Word About Software:
I’m aware that there are a lot of software programs out there that claim to help you increase your following. These programs might sound wonderful, but you should know that they are very risky. In most cases, such programs are against Twitter’s terms of service and, if you get caught using one, you could lose your account. Don’t take the risk — stick with the tips instead!
How I Developed My Strategies:
A few short years ago, I didn’t really get the “Twitter” thing? I certainly didn’t understand how to increase Twitter followers either, but I decided to give it a fair shot. After a lot of experimenting and learning as I went, I now have a loyal following of 5,403 individuals, and it’s growing every day!
I’ve boiled my experiences and what I’ve learned down into these three easy strategies. They’ve worked for me, and I know that they will work for you as well. No matter what you’re promoting – anything from reclining lift chairs to dental services to Joovy Caboose strollers, you can use Twitter and my strategies to do so successfully.
Strategy #1 Syndicate an Online Newspaper
My first strategy on how to get more Twitter followers is incredibly easy and effective. All you have to do is syndicate an online newspaper based on a Twitter list, a user, or a keyword. Then you set it to publish daily to your Twitter following.
I created my newspaper, The Guest Blogging Daily, with www.paper.li, my Twitter account, and one of the Twitter lists. You can view my newspaper at http://paper.li/JamesMartell/1308523225 to see what I mean.
Words really can’t express how much I love paper.li!
Creating your paper with paper.li is very simple. In fact, the whole process is completely automatic. The site will post directly to your Twitter when the daily paper is released, and it will tweet your following on its own.
The contributing authors will be tweeted as each newspaper is published. A great deal of these contributing authors will become your followers but, what’s more, is that they will also retweet the newspaper to their followers. As you can imagine, this brings in tons of new followers for you!
So, you’ve got absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. I encourage you to start your very own Paper.li newspaper today. Pick a topic that will be of interest to your followers and then let your imagination go wild! The entire process can be done quickly, and you’ll start getting results right away!
Strategy #2 Become a Valued Guest Writer
Did you know that many sites – this one included- are always looking for guest writers aka guest bloggers? By becoming a guest blogger for a well visited site, you can make yourself known to a whole new group of people and find new followers for your Twitter.
For the best results, however, make sure you’re a good guest blogger! This means you have to provide useful information to your readers, and you have to interact with them as much as possible. Respond to the comments they leave and be generally helpful, and they’ll be much more likely to follow you on Twitter.
Remember that it’s up to you to ask your readers to follow you! The best way to extend the invitation is in the author bio section of the site. If you’re ready to find a whole new group of followers, then start guest blogging today!
Strategy # 3 Put Your Thank You Page to Work
Talk about saving the best for last – my final strategy is so incredibly easy and so very effective that you won’t believe you never thought of it. I actually have my friend, Joshua Sloan, to thank for it. Joshua was the VP of Internet Marketing for 1&1 hosting, the largest and fastest growing hosting company.
When I tried out Joshua’s strategy, it started working for me right away, and I’ve never looked back! All you have to do is set it up so that when someone fills in your option form (the form used to subscribe to your newsletter, to get a free report, etc.), they are sent to a thank you page.
This thank you page is where you include an invitation to follow you on Twitter. The reason this almost always works is because the person who has filled out your form obviously wants to hear more from you and has trusted you enough to give up a name and email. It stands to reason then that if you ask, that person will follow you on Twitter.
Get to Work:
So now that you know and understand my three strategies for getting more followers on Twitter, it’s time to get out there and put them to work. Remember, if you’re truly committed to carrying out these strategies, they will work for you! Even if you’re selling reclining lift chairs, dental services, or a Bumbleride Indie twin stroller, these strategies are proven and guaranteed to work!
