Twitter is a powerful tool for businesses when used correctly. It can help you generate leads, solidify your branding, and build connections with your prospects. The trouble is, if you have no followers, you can’t experience all these benefits.
Twitter has the potential to drive traffic to your blog, get more eyeballs on your content, promote your products/services and increase your influence on the social web.
You will also get the opportunity to connect with other users and form deep connections that will be beneficial to you in a huge way.
You can use it to develop an engaged community that trusts you and listens to what you have to say.
Twitter can also help get your blog posts indexed quicker by Google – there are numerous benefits.
There are numerous services offering to sell followers but you should never buy them or use any other tactic that will result in an un-engaged audience.
Despite the social proof that having a large following can convey – it’s not worth it.
Follow more people. Research shows a correlation between the number of people followed and the number of followers.
Optimize your Twitter bio. Users who want to find out more about you will inevitably visit your Twitter bio. Make sure it’s professional, complete and that it does a great job of representing you and your business.
Use Twitter search to find users who share your interests. Follow them, engage with their content and wait for them to follow you back!
Help others rather than just pushing your own stuff. Twitter is about helping, making connections and providing great content, not about selling your stuff. Become known as someone who puts the needs of others first, and your follower count will grow organically.
Promote your Twitter account on your other social media accounts. For best results, entice people by mentioning interesting discussions you’re engaged with on Twitter.
Find and follower your LinkedIn connections on Twitter. Here’s how to do it.
