Just by making a change in the way you approach Twitter, can significantly attract people to follow you, thereby helping you increase your follower base.
To begin with, the easiest way to start working on your follower base is to check your own contact list with Twitter’s Find Friends option that lets you search Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail and AOL mail address books, who have already signed up for Twitter. Alongside, you can also manually import contacts & invite those friends who don’t use Twitter.
Now that you’re done with following your connection, the next important aspect is to interact & engage with your limited follower base. Sharing meaningful, high-quality tweets that provide relevant information to your audience, instead of constant bombardment & endless self-promotion, can help you steadily grow your follower base. It’s better to have engaged followers than just have inactive followers.
Other than just connecting with your followers, remember to promote your Twitter account on other social media platforms. This could help attract new followers to your account, from other platforms too.
Follow this simple rule to significantly increase your follower base:
More Tweets = More Followers!
Make it a point to put up tweets on a regular basis. Also, add an image to your tweet to double the interaction it receives. – (Tweets with links are 86% more likely to be retweeted by tweeple)
