15 Ways To Promote Your Twitter Account & Get More Followers

If you’re not on Twitter, you should be. Home to 232 million users, Twitter is the social network for spontaneous conversation, and it’s a great place to reach out to people and network. There are over 340 million tweets shared each day and searches on the network top a whopping 1.6 billion search queries every day.

Those are no small numbers. If you have a website or forum to promote, those numbers likely caught your attention. That still doesn’t answer the major question most people have when it comes to Twitter:

How do I get more Twitter followers?

Fortunately, with the help of the infographic below (and a few other facts we’ve dug up) you’ll have plenty of information at the ready to make a splash on Twitter.

Quick Tips On Getting More Followers On Twitter

1. Embed your tweets on your blog posts to make it easy for people to tweet your article and follow at the same time.

2. Advertise on Twitter. You can promote your account or a tweet. The choice is yours and you don’t have to spend a bunch to get started.

3. Host a webinar. Encourage people to share the webinar as it is taking place and field questions directly off Twitter to boost interaction and engagement.

4. Add a Twitter widget to your site. This one is pretty self-explanatory. You need to make it easy for people to follow you.

5. Run a contest. Giveaways are great for getting traction on social media. Find ways to make tweets and retweets increase entries or raise the value of the prizes. Be creative.

6. Offer support. Don’t relegate your company to email. Branch out into the areas your customers choose. While you may not wish to use Twitter as an official support channel, you can still help your customers find answers to their questions and get help.

7. Business cards. Make sure you add your Twitter handle to your business cards.

8. Share relevant content. Be sure to share content from influencer’s in your niche or industry. You can also share content that your audience will find useful.

9. Share funny content. Everyone likes to laugh. Be the source of a few giggles and people will be more likely to follow.

10. Start guest blogging. Offering to write articles for popular blogs in your niche can widen your audience and help establish you as an authority in your niche. Most webmasters that accept guest posts will allow you to link to your Twitter account in your author bio.

11. Share images. Engagement is 200% higher for tweets with image links, according to Quick Sprout.

12. Ask questions. People are more likely to respond to questions, meaning your tweets will get more engagement.

13. Use hashtags. You should be using hashtags in your tweets — just don’t over do it. 1 or 2 works perfectly, but if you go over that studies show you’ll end up with less engagement.

14. Follow people. When you follow someone, most will follow you back. Just don’t go overboard on following new people, especially if your account is new. Twitter has daily account limits and will suspend your account for “excessive following” (100 or more in a day).

15. Cross-promote. You should be using all of your social networks to your advantage. Make sure you link to your Twitter account from Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn and anywhere else you have a social presence.
