“7  Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers “

Hello  to all my readers (big cashers) it’s  Darrell back at you.  The chief blogger at the cash blog, today I’m doing a weekend social media share. Actually it’s evening 6 pm a beautiful 69 degrees here in  Iowa.

Here at the cash blog my  go-to social media outlets are Facebook and Twitter. I already did  my post about Facebook  ”  31 Tips to Get More Facebook likes.”

So I decided to do one  about Twitter  since my readers (big cashers) requested that.   Join my 19,000  Twitter followers and follow me too ! thanks in advance everybody.

Today’s post “7 Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Follower’s” took about 4 hours of research  so I am expecting my loyal reader’s to use that donate button today and show me  “some love”. Now back to the post.

Guys instead of focusing on getting as many followers as possible focus on engaged followers.

The difference is that engaged followers with whom you have established relationships  with are more likely to Retweet, and Like your content than someone who only followed you because you followed them first.

Twitter’s 320 million current active user’s represent an all-time high. Of course Facebook is king with 1.7 billion.

However Twitter is a great platform for businesses, brands and professionals with more than 135,000 daily signups.

75% of businesses are on Twitter to engage with their customers.

7 Clever Ways to Increase Your Twitter Followers

1. Use Attractive Clear Profile Images, Cover Photo and Background

Only three images can be added to Twitter therefore you need to make the most of these photos. The three areas where you can add a picture are the header,profile and background.

If the profile you have on Twitter is personal you should use a picture of yourself as the image.

The background and header can be used to represent your company. It is for attracting new followers.

2. Asking Questions is an Effective Way To Attract Followers

Questions in your tweets are more likely to get more conversations started. So start tweeting questions to get answers.

Come up with relevant questions about your niche.

When you get responses,make sure to followup with those who answer you. Show them  you’re listening and care.

You may also want to highlight certain answers by retweeting them with a response to keep the conversation alive and inspire even more interaction and followers. I recommend tweeting questions at least three times a week

3. Attach Images for Better Interaction and  Followers

Images always attract more attention from people than text. Images in your text will definitely increase your followers So start adding images with your tweets.

You may not always have time to add images to your tweets, but you’re likely to be rewarded.    ” Tweets with images received

  • 18% more clickthroughs
  • 89% more favorites
  • 28% more followers
  • 150% more retweets

4. # Hashtag Your Topic

Your tweets are only seen by your followers. However when you use a hashtag followed by a word they can potentially be seen by any user.

By including the hashtag symbol (#) you categorize your tweets  which make them appear when a user searches the term.

Clicking a hash tagged word shows other Tweets that include the same hashtag.

5. Include Emoji’s and Symbols

Those little icon’s we once called “smileys” have come a long way. Today a lot of emoji’s and symbols appear in tweets and people seem to love them.

Guys try including non-text characters to make your message stand out.

From your smartphone,it’s easy to grab emoji’s straight from the keyboard and catch the eyes of many followers.

6. Face Your Followers

To everybody I want to encourage you to feature yourself in your tweets every now and then.

It will definitely help get more of a personal connection and build trust with followers. Toss a candid selfie on Twitter.

7. Quote Someone

Twitter users really connect with quotes,funny quotes. Toss the occasional quote into your tweet mix, especially when you come across something thoughtful or inspiring.

Don’t let the 140- character limit for tweets stop you from posting a longer quote. Quotes as well as images will attract more eyeballs and get more followers.

  10. This was timely advice for me as I have just recently decided it is time to take social media more seriously. I have kind of been avoiding delving into all the different platforms for fear I just don’t have time. However, I think if you can kind of treat social media posts as mini blog posts that take far less time and post on a consistent basis, then this is better than doing nothing. Thanks for your twitter tips. I will be sure to follow them!
