How many followers you think are enough for your Twitter profile?
There’s probably no number to it because the more followers you have the more leads you can convert and reach new people.
But attracting people to follow you isn’t simple.
Had it been easy, everyone would have millions of followers chilling in the profile.
If you’re struggling for new followers or just starting out, then this article is for you.
Today, you’ll learn 4 hacks to get millions of Twitter followers.
Let’s dive right in…
Consider you Twitter as your business
The first step to more followers is to accept your Twitter profile as your business. The content you produce is your product, and the potential followers you want are your customers. If you take a moment and think about it, then that’s what you do on Twitter. You create quality content and sell it to people.
Now, let’s break down how you can bag more customers, aka followers.
Make sure you create only quality content.
Again coming to the analogy, no one will buy from you if you’ll sell flawed products that don’t provide value.
Hence, take your time to craft quality tweets and resourceful content that not only educates and entertains but also connects to people.
The next thing is to offer a variety of products. No matter how good your tweets are, you don’t want people to fed up with them. Hence, mix your content.
Here’re some tips:
- Share videos because they’re six times more effective than text content.
- Leverage the power of images with all your tweets. Images are catchy and are more likely to grab attention of people while scrolling.
- Use relevant memes to represent your content in an entertaining form.
- Share infographics, blog posts, articles and behind the scene photos.
- Finally, include a link in your tweets if possible because tweets with links work like a charm.
By creating quality tweets and mixing you content you can lure people to notice and hence follow you.
Engage, Engage, Engage
Again the analogy: Don’t you hate when silly customer reps don’t understand your problem or when it’s too difficult to even reach them.
Welcome to social media where people also get annoyed that might lead them to unfollow you.
What can you do?
Engage with them.
Whenever someone comments on your post respond with a “Thank You” or at least like the comment. This’ll send a positive message to the people that you care about their say.
Say, there’s a conversation happening in the comments section, jump into it. Share what you think and talk here and there a little. People love when accounts take the time to talk with them.
You can also like, comment, retweet content of your followers or influencers in your niche.
Twitter will send them a notification about your kind efforts.
This’ll encourage them to engage with your content or give you a shout out.
Mention and Tag
Building relations with fellow businesses is always good for growth. You can use this tactic on Twitter by opening your hands for fellow users.
Say you find a piece of content and relate it to a user in your niche.
What can you do?
Mention that user in a comment or when you post something mention relevant accounts in it or use #FollowFriday to recommend accounts to people.
All this will send powerful signals to users that you’re willing to help them grow.
They’ll appreciate your efforts and might promote your profile.
Another way to reach new audiences is to use hashtags.
Hashtags make your content searchable and help reach the relevant audience.
You assign them to your content, and people searching for content related to those tags will find your content.
Spread the word
Marketing helps businesses target a specific audience and showcase their products in front of potential customers.
Similarly, by spreading the word aka promoting your profile, you can find new followers.
How can you do this?
- Share your address on your other social handles.
- Screenshot your best tweets and embed them in blog posts.
- Include your profile in your email signature.
- Use Twitter ads to display your content to specific people based on your requirements.
By using these 4 hacks, you can get millions of followers. Be it Twitter or other social platforms, treat your account as a business.
You can then break down into various aspects responsible for the growth. This way you can stay alert and follow an innovative approach to attract followers.
