If you wish to increase your followers count on your twitter page then increasing your page traffic is the key. This is a very simple formula; the more people visiting your twitter page will directly increase the probability of more people following you. However it sounds easy enough but trust me it is not; it requires a lot of hard work and patience on your side. You will have to devote time if you really want to increase the number of followers. Here are few good points which can help you:
- A good page design is a must. There are millions of twitter accounts all over the world and you need to make some efforts if you wish to make it stand above the rest. You should have a good background image along with a good combination of matching colors; this will create a lasting first impression.
- Adding a picture of you is a great idea as people like to follow people and not just symbols. Communication with people who have thousands of followers is a good idea though. This would help you get attention of those followers and some might end up following you.
- Updating your page is of great importance. Nothing is more annoying than seeing the same page for the next one month. This becomes one of the reasons of not following you, so avoid it. You can even add a link of your page under your signature on emails or forums. You should also get yourself involved in different contests and projects of your twitter users, this might help you in gaining some followers.
- One of the most effective methods of gaining followers is that you just need to go to the bar find people and type ‘a’. This will give you access to pages of twitter users and all you need to do is just follow all of them. Then you can go through the ‘b’ lane and follow them as well. Whenever you will follow a person he/she will receive a notification regarding it and an option of following you back. Not everyone but at least 10 per cent of people will follow you back. This is a great way to jump start your twitter account.
- Also, one should know what kind of tweets is most effective and popular. The people are most interested in tweets which states what you are doing and that can be followed by a link and nothing else. Supplications like “please re-tweet this” and “please click” are best to be avoided. Try and make your tweet more original, natural and free from spam. With the increase in number of followers clicks on the links will increase and you will enjoy a lot of free promotion.
- You should not forget to keep a track of all your data as it will help you in tracking your progress. You can do this by making the use of URL shortenings services. There are many sites which can help you determine the number of clicks you received from twitter members. So, now you are ready to enjoy tweeting.
