The typical Twitter problem
You have a Twitter account, a lot great ideas but not enough people listen – or follow – your posts. So you might want to get more followers easy. At least you need to know the best strategy to grow the amount of people on your account.
Things you can do
First at all you need to create valuable content. A fair mix out of conversations, links to your other websites or blogs and ReTweets of people you follow. But this might not be the fastest way to get famous on twitter in a short time.
You might think about to Advertise, run a contest, Guest blogging, video or other. Here are some wonderful great ideas, tips and hints.
How To Get Twitter Followers
At the Website the Social Media guide is a post you should have an eye on. The title “How To Get Twitter Followers” http://thesocialmediaguide.com/social_media/how-to-get-twitter-followers with a bunch of information and advice. Read this, take the time and read it again and think about which tip and advice you might use on your activities on Twitter.
Clean up your Twitter
From time to time you will hit a limit on Twitter. If you f.e. follow 2000 people and you have only 500 followers to your account, Twitter won’t let you follow more people as 2000 until you reach I guess 1.800 followers to your account.
What to do?
In such a case you have to figure out, who is important or valuable from the 2000 people you follow. In my account I followed a few people with a nice name, a few great topics but no tweet within the last 300 days – means more or less a dead account. If you try to clean up your account manually, your need a lot of time. I saw a tool called Twitcleaner http://thetwitcleaner.com/
