No doubt, Twitter is one of the most popular social media platforms with more than 500 million users and 135K new users signing up daily. Whether you are trying to get more followers for your business or your personal brand, it's better to have engaged followers instead of just followers. Spend just five minutes each day doing some of the following steps and you will be on your way to doubling your followers.
Key takeaways :
Perfect your profile - Most users will check your profile (photo, description, etc.) before they follow you.
Tweet more but don't spam - According to a study conducted by Beelove: 1000 users with fewer than 1000 tweets usually have less than 100 followers, while those with more than 15K tweets have between 100K to 1 Million followers. Which means those who post on a regular basis tend to reach more audiences.
Use your connections - Find connections you already have through email and LinkedIn. People are more likely to follower you if you already have relationship to them.
Get involved - Join in on weekly twitter chats, or start your own, and engage with others in your field. As a result you'll meet new people and potential followers.
Find new followers - Find and follow people that share you interest and are in your industry. Follow those that are engaged in the posts that you are commenting on and retweeting. Find and follow influential people within your industry and retweet their posts on regular basis.
Keep Followers engaged - Keep followers engaged by tweeting content that is interesting to them.
