In another article, I shared why Twitter is Social Media’s best-kept secret and how easy it is to get your message out in front of a lot of people fast.
You probably already know that for any social media or marketing to be effective, you’ve got to build your audience. And as you follow more people and they follow you, more people get to know you and your business.
A top five goal our Nimble Quotes subscribers have is: Grow Twitter Audience. But how?
It’s just like in real life. Imagine you are at a business networking event, a conference, a seminar. There are hundreds or thousands of other people at the event. You know you want to meet people who can help you grow your business, who you can learn from, partner with, help out. The only thing is, you’re probably going to have to make the first move. You’ve got to approach them, introduce yourself and break the ice to get the conversation going. It is exactly like that on Twitter. Make the first move.
I know! It would be easier if the other person made the first move. Can’t they do some of the heavy lifting? I hear you. But you’re in control of your goals, your business, and believe it or not, many people appreciate someone else making the first move. So take control and be the one to do it!
Here’s what I’ve found works…
The secret formula that I’ve discovered over the years working with hundreds of clients in different industries, is that on average if you follow 100 people, anywhere from 15 to 40 people will follow you back.
That adds up very quickly.
Here’s how you can get started:
- Follow people you already know from your email or other contact lists.
- Look for people on Twitter that have content you are interested in, are in the same location or may be a good potential client and follow them.
- Follow back people who follow you.
It’s that simple.
Why not put the formula to the test today on your own Twitter account? Your target is to follow 100 people in the next few days.
