Follow Others

Not everyone you follow will follow you back. Famous people definitely won’t

or it’s unlikely! Who is likely to? Marketing people, people with a business

product or service who are also looking to expand their audience and network.

 

Engage

Get involved with the conversation. If you know about the topic of conversation

get involved and be friendly. If you want answers there are so many people to

ask or listen to.

 

Share Posts

If you share posts, or add favourable comments prior to sharing. This will

be appreciated as not only does it give the author more weight on Twitter

but also aids their Klout score and SEO efforts. Klout scores you for your

engagement level, frequency of posting and your reach across all social platforms.

 

Tweet Frequently but not too Often

Every time I tweet I find that I have an increase in folowers (only due to

the fact that I use # otherwise you will only be seen by your current followers)

If you tweet constantly through the day or your tweets are irrelevant or not credible.

People will stop following and you’ll lose rather than gain an audience.

 

Tweet about Topical Issues

There are numerous tools that you can use to keep up with popular topics.

Twilert – Can be used to email you daily to update what your competitors

are saying on Twitter. Or it can also be set to follow a keyword.

Tecnoratti – Can prompt you to the top blogs and posts that are popular.

Google Trends – Lets you know popular searches.

Google Alerts – Monitors the Web for interesting new content.

Linkedin Groups – Managers choice highlights popular posts and topics.

 

Use #

Try out # you think may be appropriate e.g. #socialmedia in the search bar to

check that it’s a relevant or being used. Then add relevant # in your Tweet.

I have always found this effective in increasing my followers and reaching an extended audience.

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
