Twitter Basics for Getting More Followers

Twitter continues to be one of the best social media platforms for engagement. It is an ideal social network for marketers or online businesses that helps generate leads, promote the brand and build connections. However, the challenge is increasing your followers, thus reaching more people with your message.

Here are the basic and quick ways we recommend you to get more followers on Twitter:

Use relevant hashtags.

Twitter is known for the hashtag which makes it different from other social media platforms. Though people uses hashtags on Facebook and Instagram, it’s in Twitter that it’s most famous for. Studies show that tweets with 1 or 2 hashtags get likely 21% more engagement than those added with 3 or more. Keep in mind to use appropriate hashtags when posting.

Share useful content.

Twitter helps you promote your brand if you share great contents. When you share credible sources, people will want to get updates from you and are more likely to follow you.

There are a lot of strategies you can try. Share a variety of content such as articles related to your brand or quotes or Twitter polls to create conversation. We recommend following the 80/20 rule where 80% are helpful or inspiring content and 20% of your posts are advertising your brand.

Promote your Twitter account effectively.

Let your followers from other social media platforms know that you have a Twitter account. Simply include in the bio your Twitter username, or ask your followers to follow you as well on Twitter. Also, add a section on your website where they can follow you on you social media platforms.

Follow other people so they’ll follow you back.

If you follow someone on Twitter, many of them will follow back as a polite gesture. If you want to get more followers, you should find followers that will be interested to your brand. To do so, find people with the same interest as yours and follow them.

We hope these steps help you reach more people with your message on Twitter.
