There are several ways to get more followers on Twitter for free. Having more followers on Twitter will make your company and brand look bigger, it will allow for your followers to share, message and tweet your content more frequently and it will help you generate more leads which turn into sales in the long run. In this post we will talk about images, optimizing your profile and how to find the right followers for your business.
You will want to have a great profile picture. If your company is on the larger side, having a picture of your logo will be a great picture to choose for your profile image. If your company is smaller, or you are using Twitter as an individual then having a great picture of your full face smiling is a great way to attract like minded individuals. Do not leave your profile image box blank, no one wants to follow a Twitter egg.
Make sure you also have a customized background picture and header image. Your background picture image size for Twitters new design should be 1366 x 768 pixels (optimized for the majority of screens). You should add in a few photos or a call to action in the section on the left and make sure your image is centered and justified properly to fit other devices and web browsers.
Your profile section allows you to write a short bio. In this section you should be writing a brief description about your business and link it to your website. This is what people see when they are searching for who to follow. This short space should be catchy to the reader and make them want to follow you so make it good! You should use this space to add in a few of your keywords.
You need to stay within your target market or niche. If you are selling footballs you are not going to want to be associated with people who do not like to play football. Choose an authority figure in your niche to start and try to follow those key players. Follow big and well known Twitter users or celebrities. Select their followers and follow people who interest you on that list. When people go to search for followers they will also be doing the same thing you are and your name will come up under ‘followers’ for that authority figure or celebrity. Chances are, you will get a few followers back instantly.
Know the Rules
Twitter will only allow you to follow a certain number of people per day. Start with 20 per day and go from there. Twitter will suspend you if you break the rules. Getting more followers on Twitter for free is a slow process but in the end you will have a great list of loyal and targeted followers who will be interested in what you have to say.
