Gaining Twitter Followers in 2014

Body of Article (Text)

Many Internet marketing gurus are cautioning online business owners to stop relying on Google because of the Internet giant’s frequent algorithm changes.

Social networking can prove a viable complement to SEO, but only if you know how to draw visitors to your site. Facebook and Pinterest are straightforward, but Twitter remains a challenge for many.

Many have searched for the answer to the age-old question: “Why can’t I get more followers?” The answer is actually simple. The fact of the matter is people are busy. Sure, users may lose themselves in Pinterest for several minutes at a time, but Twitter is different.

While Pinterest works in a medium that our brains are wired to find appealing, Twitter is about sorting through a glut of written information.

People are so busy, they hardly have time to forge connections with marketers they don’t know or care about. Not all hope is lost, however. If you set up your Twitter platform with an eye toward giving instead of receiving, you may find great success.

Be Visible

The first rule of gaining Twitter followers is to get your name out there, but to do so in a non-aggressive manner. Use hashtags whenever practical, and use the @mention functionality to get the attention of the influencers in your niche. This is a great way to get your valuable content in front of many people.

However, if all you’re doing is spamming a link to your eCommerce site, don’t expect these tools to work for you. Gaining followers is all about giving value to others. To that end, it is a good idea to set up an article or blog section on your eCommerce site.

Once you have content to share, you’ll want to join a twitter directory. Directories like Twiends, WeFollow and Twellow allow you to follow others for a chance that like-minded people will follow you back. Be careful to go with a directory that works to match you with others by interest.

Cap Your Tweets

This one is straightforward: do not send more than 15-20 tweets per day. If you bombard your followers, they will unfollow you. It is best to use a scheduling service like Hootsuite so that you can spread your tweets out a bit without having to sit on your account.

Dominate Your Niche

It goes without saying that if you can be funny or otherwise entertaining you will gain more followers. Still, it pays to set a tone that is appropriate for your niche. Setting a unique tone is part of becoming an authority, and being an authority is the best way to gain followers over time.

Start a blog, and then guest post on other blogs in your niche. Use your Twitter account to curate useful content. In other words, share the knowledge with the community.

It’s also a good idea to write a blog post about your Twitter account, and then let slip that you’re only releasing certain information on Twitter. Then stick to the plan. This can prove a powerful method if you’re an expert in a fast-moving niche.
