Social media is a great tool and can be the making of your business, but there’s not much point in it if you have no followers. Here’s 12 quick tips that will help you increase your followers on Twitter:

  1. Follow – Research has found that there is a link between the amount of people you follow and how many followers you have. Following relevant celebs, or influencers is always a clever idea as there is a good chance that they will follow you back.
  2. Interact – Like and retweet any relevant tweets, and respond to all @mentions, this shows to potential new followers that you are active and worth the follow.
  3. Post intriguing and relevant content – Tweet things that your followers will want to see, it doesn’t always have to have a direct link to the business, but make it intriguing, funny and engaging.
  4. Tell people you are on Twitter – Put links on your website, links in your emails, put links everywhere and anywhere! You can even put it on other social platforms like Facebook “go follow our Twitter account”.
  5. See what’s trending – Join in with any trending conversations, using hashtags. This way more people will see your tweet and so increasing brand awareness.
  6. Post regularly but not too much – You won’t gain any new followers if your last post was back in 2015. Make sure that you tweet regularly but don’t spam your follower’s timelines. We recommend twice a day, to keep your followers interested and to gain new followers.
  7. Tweet at the right time – There’s no point in tweeting at 5am, when nobody’s going to be on twitter, think carefully about when your target audience will be active.
  8. Don’t be too promotional – People have social media to keep in touch with friends, and to see what everyone is up to and not necessarily to make a purchase, and so it has been found that ads are more effective when they don’t look like ads.
  9. Polls & Questions – Engage your audience, creating conversation will show potential followers that you are active and want to converse with their customers, people liked to be involved.
  10. Hashtag – The hashtag game is a dangerous one, but if done correctly can increase engagement significantly. Read more on using hashtags here.
  11. Tag Relevant people – Tagging people or brands in your tweets will increase your impressions no matter who it is. They may even respond or retweet the tweet, which can make your profile gain followers quickly.
  12. Use Emojis – These will jump out on a timeline full of text, using an emoji will increase engagement significantly according to ADWEEK.
