Some people tend to overlook the importance of Twitter. A lot of people have been focused on Facebook and Twitter tends to be looked at as a lesser version of the website. However, if you are serious about taking your marketing strategies to a higher level, then it is a good idea to learn how to get more Twitter followers.

Twitter is all about being able to send a short message to all of your followers.  This can be a picture.  A link to an ad about your business. Or you can ties your Facebook, Foursquare or other accounts to twitter to let your customers know where you are or what you are doing.  It is a good idea to try and get as many followers as possible, but a focused list is better than growing a giant list.

To get more followers, you will simply need engage in your followers.  Have conversations with them about things in your feed.  This applys to all forms of social media.  Don’t just put things up, engage your customers.

Linking your account profiles to other websites will increase your presence.  Make sure all the accounts have the same name so that your customers can easiely find you on all the different formats.  We have done this with our businesses and have many different followers between all the sites. For example, your Facebook, YouTube and even LinkedIn profiles will have your Twitter name exposed so that you will be able to gain more followers.

One way to get followers is to ask friends and family to follow you.  One great way to grow followers is to find others in your community and follow them.  If they re-tweet your posts then you will grow followers in your area.  Some suggest “buying ” followers to make it look like you have a large group, but this eeems to defeat the purpose of growing a focused group.  Organically growing your followers is best.  And a great way to get more customers.

If you are serious about trying to get followers, you have to be patient as you will most likely not get a big boost of followers right away. With just a little patience, you will surely be able to gain more followers on Twitter.
