How To Increase Your Twitter Followers
Alongside Facebook, Twitter is the largest, most impactful of the social networking sites that are slowly taking over the world. Whether you are a private user or a business service, Twitter has become an essential platform for speaking your mind and making yourself heard. But finding people to follow you is not always an easy task. Luckily, there are a couple of ways in which you can make sure that your tweets reach a bigger audience. You need to keep your tweets:
- Relevant and informative (particularly for businesses)
- Current and in touch with world events
- Witty and engaging
There is nothing more frustrating than random Twitter updates. I don’t really care if MissTeen64 is eating sushi. Businesses that tell me they are having a great Monday will not grab my attention or my money. Try to keep your tweets informative and relevant. If your branch is having a sale, tweet about it. Tell the people what you need them to hear. This positive advertising and useful information will spread, and lead to new followers and turnover. If you use Twitter to voice your opinion or express yourself, then do so. What’s the point of telling people what you had for lunch? The vehicle is there for you to take a stand, crack a joke, or spread information. If you want more visitors, try taking that approach.
Twitter gives businesses and individuals alike the chance to engage with a huge global audience in real time. In order to keep up and grow your following, tweet about things that are affecting you and your community now. If you continue tweeting about your family holiday in 1986, you simply won’t be exciting enough to attract more followers. Talking about the passing of Steve Jobs, or South Africa denying the Dalai Lama a visa will get you noticed, especially if you are one of the first ones sharing the news. Unlike the Facebook community, Twitter is first of all made up of individuals interested in your content, they aren’t always your friends, so if you want to make a name for yourself, keep with the times.
Finally, even though Twitter is essential a tool for spreading news, information and opinions, there is no reason why your tweets need to be drab and formulaic. A witty outlook is sure to get you noticed. Make use of your limited characters in a clever, witty way if you want more followers. A bit of humor really goes a long way!
