How To Grow Your Twitter Followers
Twitter is a great tool to get your target audience discovers you, your business and your blog. It helps establish a link between you and your audience in a non-threatening way and can be a great part of your online marketing and social media marketing.

Here are some of my tips and tricks to help you get massive amounts of Twitter followers.
路Find people who you are interested in and that have a large amount of followers. This can be other Internet Celebrities like Frank Kern, Mike Dillard and me of course 馃檪 @sdentrepreneur. If you want to follow local people, look for people or businesses in your area.
路Once you have found people you want to follow, click on Followers and only follow the last 3 to 5 pages. These are the most active people who are on Twitter. You can only follow 300 to 500 per day.
路Depending on your Twitter page, on average, 50% to 70% of people will follow you back. This can grow you followers greatly per day.
路You may eventually run into your limit that Twitter allows, which is 10% over your Follower total.
路To correct this, after adding people for several days in a row, stop adding people, wait 2 to 3 days to give people a chance to follow you back. Then go to and you can mass unfollow people with one click.
路Your next step is to use Social Oomph – Here you can set yourself up to Auto Follow People back, send Direct Messages to people who Follow you and set up AutoMated Tweets so that you can send messages 24/7.
路Regarding these Automated messages, write your messages with keywords that you think people are searching for and that you want to connect with. You can use this service for free but I suggest using the Professional version if you are serious about your marketing plan.
路You also want to sign up to, which are the Yellow pages of Twitter. You can add yourself to an additional 10 categories by creating a free profile. You can also add all your other Social Media links like Facebook and YouTube here.
路When on Twellow, go to the Twellowhood or Search window to follow people in your city.
路For the advanced Internet Marketers reading this, you can create a RSS Feed with Google Alerts to follow blogs/articles that apply to keywords that are of interest to you and then use to shorten the feed and then to send this directly to Twitter. This way you won’t just be pitching your web site and by providing good information, you establish yourself as a leader in your industry.
路Add your Twitter URL to all your e-mail signatures and business cards.
路Lastly, read one of my previous Blogs about How to use Twitter Properly, this will help you keep your new followers and add more.
