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
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.
If you want to make your blog successful, and earn money by attracting advertisers to your blog then start increasing your social media fans and followers. Only they are the real and targeted audience that can help you to maintain your blog readership.
I hope my suggestions will help you to increase your twitter followers. You can start by following me on twitter and I’ll follow you back if I like your shared posts. If you have more to add on this subject then kindly share your thoughts in the comments.
