How To Get More Followers On Twitter
Of the many questions Twitter novices ask, this one is the most popular: how to get more followers on Twitter. Although experts seem to agree that there is no secret formula for getting more followers, these tips may increase your chances of making yourself more visible to possible followers. Remember, don't spam, and use Twitter honestly--spamming or using unethical methods to get more followers often doesn't work.
- Tweet regularly. Regular, high-quality tweets attract more followers because you're constantly engaging them, which tells them you're an active Twitter user. Make sure to space out these tweets, however. Posting several tweets in a row may cause you to get unfollowed and reduce your follower count.
- Follow your followers. Many followers appreciate this gesture, and may be more likely to include you on their Follow Friday lists. Many followers are also more likely to follow people that follow them back, as they want to increase their follower count, too.
- Always respond to questions or comments from your followers. Many of them may ask questions publicly, hoping for a response. Not responding can make it look like you're ignoring him, which may cause the person to unfollow you. Engaging with other followers is a great way to show you want to communicate with your fans--and potential followers may see that as an incentive to become a fan of your Twitter.
- Use hashtags. Hashtags are keywords you insert into your posts which are then listed in various Twitter hashtags sites. Many people search for new users by searching for posts by hashtag. Don't abuse this feature, but use it wisely in posts you consider high-quality.
