Increase Your Twitter Following

If you're on Twitter, you've seen your fair share of these types of tweets, have not you? But there is more, way more, to Twitter than benign random comments. Twitter is a great business tool if used right. If used wrong, people will not follow you – let alone buy from you – and it will be a complete waste of your time.

Here are a few things I've observed when deciding whether to follow someone on Twitter or not:

Bio
If you want people to follow you, have a bio. If you do not have a bio, it's hard for others to tell at a quick glance what you're about. Do not make your bio one big pitch fest; that's sure to make people run the other way. Since you're using Twitter for business, have your bio say internet marketer, SEO enthusiast, writer, blogger, WAHM or whatever your business interests are. Keep in mind that people might find you through the search feature when they search for SEO, writer, WAHM, etc.

It's also nice to add your sense of humor at the end of your bio because when you make people chuckle, they're more likely to follow you.

Avatar
Please do not use the default avatar. Be a real person with a real face or even a brand logo. Many Twitterers will not follow you based on picture vs. no picture alone. Enough said.

Your Twitter Stream
What you tweet matters. When a potential follower clicks on your name they not only see your bio and picture, they look at what you tweet. Do you post only your promotions? That's an instant turnoff. Do you just tweet stuff out like you're not talking to anyone in particular? For example, are you only tweeting about your latest posts or articles you've written? People want to follow people who are having real conversations with others. They want to see that you respond to questions and help with problems. It does not matter how good the information is that you're sending out to Twitterspace, if it looks like you're not interested in communicating with real people, they're not going to want to follow you.

Bottom line – respond to other people's tweets, retweet other's tweets that you find value in, offer help, support someone who's having a bad day, and occasionally tweet your promotions.

Using Twitter successfully to grow your business starts with building relationships with others. But first, use the tips above to make your Twitter page appealing so you can grow your targeted followers. After all, you need to have followers before you can build relationships with them.
