How Many Twitter Followers Do You Really Need To Be Successful?

People who are into online marketing or branding has probably discovered by now that Twitter is the place to be. If you new to twitter, it may seem little confusing about following and getting followers,

Have you ever wondered how many followers you really need to be successful on Twitter? Is it 1000, or do you need at least 10,000 followers to have success with Twitter. My views are different from most, so be ready for some controversial information.

There seems to be a rat race going on to get more and more followers. Yeah, it’s important to increase your followers, but it’s not always necessary to get carried away. And I’ll admit that it sounds great to be able to say that you have tons of followers. That makes your real popular, right? Like giving a party and everybody wants to be there. That is what it feels like. But is this really what Twitter is about?

Being very honest to that there are some very popular users have 1,00,000 or even many more followers. As individual marketing your brand or company services, it is reasonable to estimate that you could reach 10,000 followers within time with normal speed. You could do this but the thing is that you should be reaching out to people and making genuine connections

See I’m not against having more followers, I won’t go that far. Having a bunch of followers that is interested in the same topics you are is a wonderful thing. Your Twitter stream is highly relevant to you and your followers and that is how it should be.

At the same, I also do believe that followers who have different interests from yours don’t make any sense. What benefit is there in having a person send you random tweets that you could not care about it. Just to join the party? Maybe that is why I prefer a small party with good friends over a massive event with people I do not know and do not relate to.

I recommended one method how to start follow people first. Join in conversation in which you are interested and reach out to them, if they feel that you have something to offers, informative things they will start retweeting you tweets. In results of this you can get more followers who really interested in your tweets. Once you win the trust of your followers start telling them about your blog, website, products or information. The most important thing to be watchful in your self-promotion is that you need to keep maintained the balance it rightfully while talking to people. Start with a small number of people.

See people are tweeting/retweeting your tweet only if they are like your post, when you are in their friend list or most importantly if they know you.

At last give your opinion on this and do not forget to participate in conversation to increase the followers.

    Hi Kamal,
    Wonderful article…I think having more Twitter follower is very important, but having relevant followers is perhaps the most important :)

    I agree – there does seem to be a bit of a Twitter race on at the moment, and I cant say that I am convinced of the value, particularly as a lot of the followers appear to be spam bots etc. The important thing is to have a group of highly relevant followers that you can really engage with – too many followers and you cant always do that.

    If they really feel engaged they will then pass your message onto their own small group of followers and so on…

    Hi Kamal,

    We can have thousands of follower if they are not from the same niche then it is just waste of having those follower, but it is good to show number on pages

    Nice post Kamal.

    You are right having followers who actually go through our tweets and respond to tweets are the actual followers.

    Twitter is a very profitable social media but the thing is to interact with users and build a healthy network. Then your followers will pay attention to your tweets, otherwise they will skip it.
