Blogging Basics: How To Get Good Twitter Followers

twitter-backgrounds-images-themesYes, there are a TON of things you can purchase (or even get for a free trial) that will get you hundreds if not thousands of Twitter followers IF you don’t care about the quality of them.  At the time that I am writing this post, my Twitter-Ego @momof3boys3702 has 5800 followers and the biggest portion of them are great quality Twitter followers.  This Blogging Basics post will help you get them, also.

What are good quality Twitter followers?

  • One that isn’t spam!
  • One that is actually reading what you write.
  • One that is interacting with you and others on Twitter
  • One that is clicking on your links.

What are good quality Twitter followers?

  • When you make your each day, you want stories that your followers can read.  If your followers are mostly junk or spam, those stories might not be so good for their ears (or eyes)
  • When you have #sponsored or #ad tweets, you want people that are going to actually click on them so that you make some money. If your followers are junk or spam they won’t be clicking your ads!
  • When you tweet your posts, you want people to actually click on them – see above
  • Because real people are way more fun and interesting than computer people!

How do I get good quality Twitter followers?

  • Attend Twitter parties within your niche and follow the interesting people that are hosting and attending.
  • Attend Twitter chats within your niche and follow the interesting people that are hosting and attending.
  • Search for #hashtags that are related to your niche and follow the people using that tag.
  • Offer an incentive on your giveaways for people to get an extra entry if they follow you and tweet your post.  Then, their followers see the giveaway and come check it out.
  • Always check your followers and follow back the ones that interest you!  I am a little slow on the uptake, but I keep my new follower emails in one folder and go through them every so often.  I follow back based on a pretty specific criteria.
  • Go through the “following” of some of your favorite people and follow the people that they follow.
  • You could also follow the people that follow the above mentioned people.

Hope that helps!  Get active on Twitter!  I love it, it works well for me.  So well, that I leave my Tweet Deck open 24/7!

Check in at the same time next week for another great Blogging Basics post!

  1. Hi Kelli, I only have 2500 Twitter followers but one thing I can ensure is they are all real people and real members. I don’t care if people have 10,000 or even 100,000. I know for a fact the following I have are real people from blog engage and to me that means a lot more then 10,000 random people on twitter. I agree quality is always more important than quantity.

    The thing that is frustrating for me is you can do all those things and still get left in the ocean.

  3. I don’t have as many twitter followers as I would like, but I am trying to increase the list naturally. I try to follow those who I am interested in, so that way I always have topics that I am interested in appear in my twitter feed. Good quality followers is important as they will be interested in what you have to post on twitter.
