How To Get Followers On Twitter

By Rahul Navlakha

You have accomplished your first major dream of your life. You now hold your first book contract in your hands. The one little problem is that the publishers have asked that you join Twitter as part of your marketing plan. The thing that makes you nervous is that you have no idea how to get followers. And what is the point of being on Twitter if you have no followers?

Twitter is a social network. So the first things you will want to do is to find your friends on the website. Most friends care about what you do, so that is going to give you a natural edge. Send them a nice e-mail if they don't follow you after a couple of days.

You will want to let all your friends, especially writing friends, know that you are now on Twitter. Put a link to your account in your e-mail signature.

Along those same lines, put a Twitter widget on any blog or website you might have. People interested in you or your work just might want to follow you.

Most people use Twitter for business ventures, however that does not mean asking your friends to follow is wrong. This website is a social network. Who knows who your friends may know who may be able to help you on your writing journey?

You might want to consider writing articles and putting them on Twitter. Most users enjoy reading articles from people they find interesting. Another good thing to do is to link your blog to your account. People who like your blog are likely to follow you. Many people even post their tweets to their blog.

Twitter always has suggested people to follow. It is a good idea to follow anyone that you can. A lot of Twitter users follow everyone that follows them. Some even announce the people that they are newly following, which can generate even more followers.

Twitter has directories you can join. The site even has online discussion groups focusing on the site and how to get the most out of it. Joining those will only help you expand your followers and will likely give you other ideas as.

However, the best way to get followers is to be active on Twitter yourself. Get on Twitter as you begin working each day, and post every time you need a break. Reply to people. Try to get people addicted to the things you say. That is how to get followers.
