Get More Twitter Followers: Some Methods That Work

6 06 2010

Your Twitter profile should be treated like any other website you own. Treat it no differently from your own blog or a free opt-in newsletter. To increase your Twitter subscriber base, you need to drive web traffic to your profile and the more targeted the traffic, the better. Less relevant details like Twitter usage times/frequency should not be your primary focus – how and when you tweet is not crucial.

One major key in increasing traffic to your twitter account is to keep sending people to your account. People do not know that you exist otherwise and people can only follow you if they know you exist. Some questions you could ask yourself could be: why would someone want to follow me? How will they benefit from following me? What should be their motive for following me?

Here are nine key recommendations for driving traffic:

1. Create a tool/application and promote your profile alongside it.
2. Buy a banner ad to target tech-savvy audiences, link it to your profile.
3. Use Twitter as a tool for tech/customer support.
4. Organize a contest through your Twitter profile
5. Include links to your profile in email/forum signatures.
6. Evangelize Twitter on your blog/other blogs and include a link to your profile.
7. Connect your blog and other social media profiles to your Twitter page.
8. Learn to pitch Twitter influencers with articles relevant to their interest
9. Explicitly ask another user to recommend your profile or exchange recommendations.
