Twitter is one of the most important factor in making driving traffic to your blog. But its not a child’s play, you need to use your Account effectively.
In this post I’m gonna explain about 5 Important yet Simple Points you should consider to increase your influence on twitter which will help you gain more Followers and reputation, resulting in more retweets of your tweets.
Separate Your Personal Account and Professional Twitter Account
If you have a twitter account for your site/blog its very necessary that you only tweet about stuffs related to your niche. Like If you have a blog related to gadgets then you should only tweet about gadgets and not about your daily life things otherwise your followers will stop following you. Your followers have followed you to receive gadget updates and not your personal life updates. You can instead make a personal account if you like sharing your daily routine like what you’re eating, what song you’re listening to etc.
Share Interesting Stuffs and Don’t Spam
Sharing is Caring. Use the power of retweet for sharing things you think will be useful to your followers but don’t spam your timeline with your tweets or sponsored ads.
Whenever you visit any awesome site or any good article then tweet about it. If you use Google chrome, you can use Tweetmeme extension.
Interact with Tweeps
This is one of the most important and simple point if you wish to gain more followers. Keep Interacting with your followers, twitter users with similar interests, comment on their tweets, ask them questions, answer to their questions. This will help you build your reputation. The point hee is don’t behave like a robotic twitter user, interact with people and socialise.
You can also start a poll on twitter or ask their opinion on a particular topic.
First Impression is the Last Impression – Have an Eye-Catchy Profile
When someone visits your profile, he decides whether to follow your or not by seeing your Profile. You can have an interesting background image and a cool bio about yourself/your site.
There are many online sites where you can find Twitter Backgrounds or use Twilk which adds your followers’ profile pictures to your background. Or just use your imagination to create one.
