It’s not enough just to be on Twitter today. You need to know how to use Twitter effectively and with your goals in mind. If your goals are just to have some fun now and then or follow the trending topics then it won’t take much of a plan. But if you’re using Twitter for business, or with any more of a plan in mind, you’re going to need to get organized. So let’s take a look at some Twitter tips for building your account and gaining followers.
Your Profile and Who You Follow
One of the first steps to a successful Twitter account is filling out your profile completely. You want to have your picture, your logo or whatever you choose to fill in but be sure to get rid of that default avatar. Fill in your bio, but remember you are limited on characters so make each word count. Tell people something about yourself and give them a reason to follow you. You also need to include your link to your website, or where you want people to go to visit you.
Once your profile is filled out you can start focusing on who you follow. This will be important to building your own followers list. So follow people in your niche and people who tweet about things that you do as well. Who you will follow will also help determine who follows you.
You can also buy Twitter followers to boost your numbers for you page in the UK but remember you want to follow others so your account balances out and that you get some real interaction going on.
Trending Topics and Hashtags
Another great tip is to learn to read and participate in trending topics and hashtags. But you don’t want to be spammy about it. Don’t ever, ever hijack trending hashtags and use them for your own unrelated posts. Only use the hashtags and join in when you have something of value to say on the topics. You can also use the search function on Twitter to search for tweets that are relevant to you.
Make sure you are tweeting info that is relevant to your followers. Give them tips, advice, links to useful articles or fun blog posts, ask questions or answer questions (great for engagement) or share personal tweets from time to time to share what you’re doing with your day.
Retweet and More
You can also retweet and interact with great posts that you find interesting. RT things that you know your readers will like, things that you find interesting and things with common hashtags. Reply to those who @ you and interact regularly. Your Twitter will grow and you will gain a steady stream of followers.Share
