There is no reason to be disappointed if your followers are not growing at a fast pace. The following tips can help you speed up the process make it more interesting.

1. Promote your Profile

Twitter is not the only social site where you have an account. You should have an account on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, and other social media sites too. Promote your Twitter account on these profiles and everywhere else where you have an online presence.

This also includes your website, your blog and even your printed business materials. This will make it easier for your visitors and audience to share your business or information with others.

2. Network with Influencers

Start networking on Twitter with people who are big influencers in your niche. this will require you to listen to the tweets for some time. it is not essential that the influencers in your niche should be national. They can be locals with influence in Calgary.

How to network with them? Begin some conversation with them on Twitter and bring most value to those conversations. If they find you to be highly relevant and useful to your niche in one or the other way, there is a good chance that they will share your information with their network.

So the next time you release a video or any other content and if the niche influencer finds it to be quite useful, they could be sharing it with their hundreds of thousands of followers.

3. Tweet During Peak Hours

Twitter is a unique social media site in that it has a peak active time. it has been found that Twitter users become more active between a specific time, which is around 10 to 16 hours. When you tweet during this time, you are likely to get the best-possible visibility for your feed. Besides, 1 to 2 pm is the most active hour every day and you could increase your Twitter activity during this period.

One of the advantages of using Twitter is that it is easy to schedule your tweets using plugins or apps. So you can schedule your tweets to be posted during those specific hours to get the best-possible and most response.

4. Follow Similar-Interest Users

When you follow people with same interests, Twitter allows you to initiate conversations with them. The more you communicate with others, the more you will be able to build your following.

Gradually, their followers will also start following you. you can search similar-interest users yourself or use apps for the purpose.

  • Hi Adam,
    I have been struggling with how to increase my twitter followers for so long but I have finally figure it out.
    It is true like you said “Follow Similar-Interest Users” but that’s only half of the equation.

    I noticed that if you respond to people who are interested in similar content, either by commenting on, retweeting, or favorite one of their posts, These users will be more likely to notice that you share similar interests in content and therefore be more inclined to follow you.
    You have to engage them and follow them .
    I am treating this a hobby now, replying to a comment and retweet a post on a daily basis.

  • Yes, you are right now a days, day to day activities make us perfect to get what we want.

  • Hi Adam
    Thanks for the tips. My best advice to grow Twitter followers is to connect with other bloggers and share their contents and retweet their tweets from time to time. There is a pretty good chance that they will return the favour at some point.

  • Good tips and I’d have to agree that #4 is a really good way to get new Twitter followers. It’s also real easy to find like-minded followers doing a search against words that interest you (and others too). Say, for example, you got a food blog and want to find others doing food blogs…a simple search of #foodblog will produce others that are doing a food blog too.

    As for the Twitter peak times, I see it fluctuate every day. Some days it’s early morning, other days it’s the afternoon and other days it’s the evenings.
