The 5 Proven Ways To Get Thousands Of Targeted Twitter Followers

September 21, 2015 | Corinna Essa

There’s no doubt that Twitter has become a great marketing tool and can help generate lots of leads and sales for businesses.

And, the number of followers you have, has a proportional impact on how fast and how easily you can generate new business.

So below are the most effective ways you can experience growth at an unprecedented rate.

Follow Friday

Follow Friday (also known as #FollowFriday or #FF) is a Twitter tradition that happens every Friday. It enables you to recommend to your followers in a tweet, people they should follow. A typical Follow Friday tweet could be “#FF @WomensNetworkAU for building such an amazing network of women” for example.

When endorsing people on Twitter in such a way, it’s only natural that most of the people you’ve recommended will do the same for you.

Follow people

If you want to get more followers fast, an easy way is to follow the law of reciprocity. That’s right, by simply following people who match your target audience, about 20% or more will follow you back.

Make it easy for people to follow you

A good formula for getting more followers is using other sources, like your website, blog, business card and even email signature. By adding a Twitter widget on your blog or website that redirects to your profile, will increase the exposure of your profile. In addition, including your Twitter handle in your email signature or business card is a good way to invite your existing audience to subscribe to your tweets.

Special offers

One of the main reasons Twitter users will follow businesses or brands is to access special deals, discount coupons and promotions. In fact, according to Nielsen research, 52% of people said they followed brands for their special offers. So ensure you use Twitter as your primary platform to announce your deals.

Tweet often

According to Beevolve who analyzed millions of Twitter accounts, there is a strong correlation between the amount of tweets published and number of followers. They estimated that a profile with over 15,000 tweets had between 100,000 to 1 million followers!
