What is the best way to gain the most relevant and engaging Twitter followers?
I'd like some information on how to legally acquire legitimate twitter followers to my account @marindependent1 ... any ideas out there? I am not interested in purchasing followers.
Follow other people in your area of interest and then show up. Be engaging, deliver great content, join conversations. I've built some fantastic relationships over twitter... the secret is getting past the tweet phase.
Tweet what's relevant to your audience, and they'll follow.
You are asking the right question because at the end of the day quality matters more than quantity.
1.- Identify your target audience
2.- Find accounts similar to yours (Perhaps a competitor) and follow their audience
3.- Weed out people not following back after a few days.
Rinse and repeat.
You can do this organically or you can use some tools that can speed up the process such as justunfollow or manaflitter.
Hope that helps!
4 Ways to Grow a Twitter Following That Matters:
Find ways to comment on your feeling about a topic. For example there was an article through The Huntington Post digital and also Linkedin Pulse that showed a picture of a new Planet. I said we are not alone. post interesting thoughts on twitter that tease. Most important about twitter is the people you can follow without asking them.The trick is to get them to follow you back.
One of the best ways to find engaging people to follow you is to participate in Twitter chats. That way, people can see that YOU are engaging, add value to a conversation, and want to follow you. Also, I usually tell folks on the chat that I will be following THEM. It's a nice technique.
Engagement is the only way. Contact me, I can tell you about a few other ways I gain legitimate followers.
The absolute best way is to be a well recognized authority in your niche. This way you'll get followers naturally without resorting to following back, buying followers or Twitter advertising. If you're not there just yet here are few more things you can do.
Twitter advertising - Twitter lets you promote your profile and only charges when someone follows you back. Because they don't have an incentive to follow you have a good chance of getting followers genuinely interested in you.
Twitter contests - The relevancy of your followers you get through this will be determined by price. If the price is an iPhone they you'll get all sorts of people following you to win the prize. If you're giving away something valuable but specific to your niche then you have good chance of getting followers.
Twitter Software - There are software that will help you find followers based on location, keywords etc. If you're a local business then you can find followers by location. Otherwise you can find followers by keyword. The trick is to not to target general keywords but to target niche keywords.
I've written a blog post covering these steps and more, do check it out if you're interested to find out more. http://rumblinglankan.com/2072/increase-twitter-followers-fast/
