Geting Lots Of Followers On Twitter! In my last post on getting twitter traffic, I talked about some of the rules you need to be aware of when using Twitter and how to follow and unfollow people. If you missed it, you can read that post here: How To Get Traffic Twitter , in this post, I will be talking about the reasons why you do these things in order to gain traffic.
The reason why you follow people, are in hopes of them following you back, so you can in turn pitch your product, service or web site. Every time you follow someone on Twitter, they get a notification that you are following them.
This is why it is imperative that your Twitter account name is representative of your product, service or web site, since it may peak the interest of any prospective new followers. It is essentially your first pitch and it is equally important that your profile be very descriptive of what is it that you are doing on Twitter.
Following and Unfollowing Twitter Users
As stated in my previous post, I give each person five days to see if they are active Twitter users, using that same rule of thumb, you want to see if they follow you back within those five days, if not, you can choose to unfollow them. However, you may not want to do that, as some people generally like to see how many of their followers are following you before they decide to follow you. This can be seen in the “suggested” people list on the right side of your Twitter interface, there will usually be a few suggestions of people to follow.
Now what I normally do is, also go through my followers, followers and see if I can find more people that I am targeting within my niche. This accomplishes two things; I am possibly finding more people in my targeted niche and my suggested follower rank will go up – meaning my Twitter account will be suggested for others to follow.
The more followers you have in common, the more your suggested rank goes up, this is quite similar to Facebook, the more friends you have in common, the more they post your profile to add as a suggested friend. So in the end, it’s more exposure for your profile and this is exactly what you want. More exposure, means more followers and more potential traffic to your web site, product or service.
In my next post on how to get Twitter traffic, I will be talking about using Twitter generically – versus automating the process, since there are always several controversial discussions about this particular subject. Although it is a pretty split division of pro’s and con’s, I will share with you some of my own personal experiences, so you can make the right judgement call for getting twitter traffic to your blog.
