Twitter Tactics: Increase Your Followers

For some people Twitter seems like some mysterious creature that’s not really understood. Non- Tweeters or those new to tweeting find themselves puzzled by the real purpose of Twitter. The savvy tweeter understands the power of Twitter in building clients, building brand name recognition, and positioning yourself and your business. These Twitter tactics can really benefit your business.

Twitter Tactic N1
Follow those who follow you!
If there is a tactic that is used more than others, this would be it. It’s really quite simple – if someone follows you, then you follow them. If you follow all those who follow you on Twitter, you will soon become a power tweeter. Just look at people like Darren Rowse (@problogger), Chris Brogan (@chrisbrogan), and Chris Guillebeau (@chrisguillebeau) – they certainly do this and it has worked for you. These guys become popular because they recognized the power of the tweet. Of course, you do need a little discretion

Twitter Tactic N2
Be a little picky!
Now after telling you to follow everyone following you comes the “But.” There will be people who follow you that have nothing to really offer you. Translated this means follow only those who are information and entertaining. Follow those who can help you build a relationship with your followers.

Twitter Tactic N3
Set up Lists
The more people you follow the more information that’s going to come past you on a daily basis. Just think about it – if you are following 10,000 people you can’t possibly read everything posted. In fact, if you are following only a 1,000 people you still couldn’t read everything they posted. By creating lists you can easily ignore as many posts as you want and your followers won’t even know you have done it.

Twitter Tactic N4
Offer real value
There’s nothing more annoying than people who post just for the sake of posting. Instead tell a story, share a news story, motivate, bring a smile to someone’s face, and share a tip… whatever your post, what’s important is that it brings value because when you provide value your followers will subscribe to your RSS, email, and blog.

That’s just four simple Twitter tactics that will help you get the most out of using Twitter
