Twitter is the place to be right after Facebook. Although millions of people are using Twitter today, hundreds and thousands of people and brands are opening profiles on the platform every day. Twitter can be a little confusing at the beginning because it’s unlike any other social media platform and comes with its own sets of quirks and uses.
This post is aimed towards individuals and business owners who are thinking of starting a Twitter profile and effective ways to get more twitter followers. Don’t worry; it’s not rocket science, you’ll be able to pull it off just fine on your own.
1. Public or Private
First off, you’ll need to decide what kind of and count would you like. A private account will have the power to accept or decline followers and people who don’t follow you won’t be able to see you Tweets. On the other hand, is your account is public, everything is an open book. This is the first thing you will need to think about and decide.
2. Follow Rivals
Before jumping beginning to tweet, you must have clarity in your vision. Obviously, since you are new to the whole thing, we imagine, you will need to figure out how you want to conduct your business on the new platform. We recommend you follow your rivals, look out for the things they are doing and then either imitate it or get inspired to do something different.
Use of hashtags is important on social media sites like Twitter. Create hashtags like keywords, and you will need to do a bit of research before you start using them. Use the most popular hashtags and do not use more than 3 hashtags at the time. Many people believe the more hashtags you use, the more people you reach but that’s simply not true.
4. The Timing Factor
You will need to experiment a lot as o the best times for posting on Twitter. Schedule posts at different times of the day and then see how people are engaging with the post. Needless to say that the time during which most people among your target audience are active, they will be engaging with your content during that particular time.
5. Mobile App
Use the mobile application for Twitter. Get used to it and make the most of it. The app is pretty handy and provides and few very interesting options that you can try out. Earlier we talked about following and observing your rivals before making the full jump into Twitter. On the app, go to the profile of the rival, see a bell button, hit that and whenever they tweet something, you’ll get a notification right away.
6. Twitter Chats
One of the easiest ways to gain attention and letting people know about your presence on Twitter is by joining some popular Twitter chats. Big brands often hold chats where they discuss things related to business. Find out such chat and participate in them. Offer crucial insights so that people engage with your comment. As they say, little things go a long way.
7. Scheduling Tools
There are several free tools as well as paid tools that will help you with scheduling post. Unfortunately, Twitter does not offer a way of scheduling tweets. Scheduling comes handy when people cant post regularly.
