Do you have a twitter account for your blog, brand or business?

Do you want to increase your twitter followers?

Then this guide will be worth reading for you ;)

Building solid social media presence not only help us to get traffic but it also give best exposure to our blog. Having likes, tweets, plus ones etc. on our blog posts makes them more trustworthy for search engines and they get ranked at higher positions in search results.

And this is only possible with great social signals and targeted fans/followers who like and share our blog posts within their social media networks.

Earlier I had discussed a killer trick to increase facebook fans that was appreciated by my beloved readers. So, today I bring some really amazing ways to get more targeted twitter followers. Let’s move ahead to learn about these ways.

Increase Your Twitter Followers For Free

Get more twitter followers
If you ever tried some online tools like addmefast, youlikehits, linkcolidor, twiends etc to get more followers, then let me tell you that those people are not the real followers. They are only useless twitter followers increased using bots.

In freelance market place, most of the gigs provide such fake twitter followers to their clients to make some bucks. I highly recommend you not to ever buy followers. You’ll not get any exposure from them.

If you really want to attract targeted audience to follow you on twitter, then must try below ways:

1. Join Forums Where There Are Your Potential Users

There are many targeted users on forum sites. Join forums under your niche, reply to users’ queries and promote your twitter handle there to get really targeted followers. Make use of Question Answers sites like Yahoo Answers and solve users queries there. After giving few helpful replies, you will be able to put your link in the signature column beneath each of your reply. You can either put your twitter handle there or blog link to get traffic to your blog.

2. Share Your Twitter Username

Make use of your other social media profiles to share your twitter profile link. Ask your friends and followers to follow you on twitter. Better to follow them back. Interact with them to get maximum retweets and build a solid social media presence there.

Facebook and Google+ both can be used very wisely to gain really targeted twitter followers. Put your twitter handle on your facebook fan page and Google+ profile and your followers will like to follow you on twitter as well. Hence you will get more twitter followers for free with no extra efforts.

3. Connect with Other Bloggers and Build Relations

Many bloggers just create their twitter account and start tweeting their blog posts. They never ever think who will retweet their blog posts without having any followers. You must need to first build relations with other bloggers. It is the fastest way to attract more audience to your twitter profile.

You can also opt for Mouth Publicity. Yes, either it’s not the fastest way to gain followers but it really works. Ask your friends to follow and you also follow them back. I found it the best way to increase twitter followers.

4. Put Twitter Handle in Email Signature

If you have an email list then add your twitter profile link in the signature. Your subscribers will love to connect with you on twitter too.

We usually send emails to our friends, relatives, business members, clients etc. Why not to convert them into your followers. Send them an email and request to follow you on twitter. It is one of the simplest methods to get more twitter followers.

5. Create An Auto Responder With Your Twitter User Name

If your blog readers send messages from your contact form, then chances are higher to convert them into your followers. Setup an auto responder to your contact email id with thank you message and add your social profile links there. Politely ask them to follow you on twitter and they will love to do so.

Also make a “Thank you” page on your blog for your blog subscribers. Whenever any reader subscribe to your blog, redirect them on that thank you page. Your social profile links must be there. It will work as Call-To-Action for them and surely you’ll see significant improvements in your twitter followers count.

    Just like publishing quality content to attract loyal subscribers same applies to Twitter, tweet useful and important posts and naturally people who are interested will follow you easily. The type of content you tweet will determine the people that will follow you.

  3. Nice post bro. Getting followers and getting targetted followers has a difference. These days, just for the sake of number people use cheap services to buy twitter followers and they are really un-targetted audience.

    Filling out a detailed bio with originality and putting a follow widget may also help in getting some followers.

    Thanks!

  5. Bro by Joining forums how could we get the advantage of twitter followers. If there someone likes us then they will look up our profile on that forum. how they will reach to our twitter profile or we have to put our link in answering mode.

    • Hafeez bro, first we must try to solve user’s queries there. Build relations with them and then be smart to convert them into your targeted followers.

      You can either put your username in the comments but don’t make it promotional and only share username not the link.

  15. Hi Ankit,

    I agree with you, i just recently started using Twitter, and got completely addicted to Hash tags. Also, found out how people keep adding hundreds of new followers with #followme hash tags.

    Yah, getting “fast followers” will never get you real people that actually contribute.

    Hi Ankit,

    Very nice post man. I was relying on Facebook for social media traffic for my blog but now I am looking for building my Twitter community.

    Though, I am applying all the tips you have mentioned in the post but there’s one more thing I’d like to add.

    Twitter Bio, It plays a very important role when It comes to attracting new followers. If we write our Twitter Bio intelligently. For instance, let’s say you you will be sharing content about Blogging then you should have the keyword blogging in your Twitter Bio. Then, you will have followers who are willing to read about blogging. I hope it helps.

  17. Hi Ankit brother,
    What an awesome post..! Twitter no doubt the most valued social media. We need more followers to show advertisers or users that we are big. Getting twitter followers is tough when compared to facebook likes. You surely done some great job here.

    Thanks for sharing such useful ways to get more targeted twitter followers.

  18. Ankit broo I am agree with you. Increasing followers with tools and online sites are just wastage of time. I seen 99% of those profiles are fake. 10 genuine followers are better from 1000 fake followers. Thanks for tricks.

  19. Hi dear
    very amazing article you have written about twitter followers, too much knowledge able. I hope these tricks will support me to increase my followers. thanks fro share with us.

  20. Nice post ankit, but really I want to tell one thing that gaining targeted followers is most vital because they are real followers and readers for you blog and also one tip I would like to give is that don’t go for paid twitter followers they are useless and non targeted

  21. Great post, Ankit. Participating in forums where potential users reside is a great way to gain more Twitter followers. I would also like to add that following the followers of authoritative personas in your niche is also a great way.

  22. Hey Ankit,

    Thanks for sharing such tremendous tips to increase my twitter followers. I agree with what your said about the sites like Addmefast etc. I believe that 5 targeted followers are better than 100 fake followers :)

  23. Hey Ankit,

    Keep it up man.
