How to Get More Followers on Twitter
How to Get People to Follow You on Twitter - We have dealt ad nasuem with how to get more followers on Twitter, but we have not really gotten into how to get people to follow you on Twitter. Although a lot of the same rules do apply, there are some crucial differences when trying to get followers and trying to get specific people to follow you. Of course you can always just ask. We covered that in another post, but it bears repeating. This is probably the honest to god simplest way to get virtually anyone to follow you on Twitter. Just decide who you want to follow you and send them tweets, not direct messages mind you, no one reads direct messages. Send them a sincere and engaging tweet asking them to follow you. Include something funny or at least specific so that they know you are not a spammer. Even the stingiest twitterers will follow you if they find you even somewhat amusing.
How to Get People You Think Are Hot to Follow You on Twitter
This is surprisingly like junior high when you think about it, but you are going to want to embrace it. Twitter is a social media site. Social media is essentially gossip, yes just like the gossip from junior high. But of course, the gossip from junior high did not earn you loads and loads for money! People are basically the same, we all crave social interaction on some level. Even the quiet ones are secretly wishing that the popular kids would just come over and talk to them. And sometimes the popular kids are the loneliest of all, simple because everyone just assumes that they have people to talk to all the time. Have I lost you completely? I am suggestion that you simply tweet the people that you want to tweet as some percentage of them will respond to you. Just talk to them as you normally would. As long as you are respectful, eventually you will get some high class followers. And remember that one or two high profile followers is worth a lot more than a thousand crappy spam followers!
