How to get more followers

There are many ideas on how we should get more followers.  Some say you should buy followers and some say don’t.  Some say you should follow people interested in your niche, and some say just follow anyone.  I have few suggestions.

  • When you are starting out, just follow as many people as possible.  Don’t worry about what are their interest or their background.  Until you have a few thousand followers then you can be a little bit more picky.  The more people you followed and more people will follow back.
  • Follow people in your own interest using the hashtag#, e.g. #poem, #politics, #makemoney, and type in the “Search Twitter” box on the top right-hand corner.
  • Follow people who have lots of followers.  If they like your tweet, you will become popular very soon. Also, you can follow their followers.

Improve your tweet skill

While you are building up the number of followers, you can learn to improve your skill.  Keep tweeting and you can try different contents every day and see what works best.  With more followers, there will be more retweets and likes on your tweets.
