I know I don’t have to explain about how Twitter works and how important it is to have a good account with lots of followers in this most popular micro-blogging network on the Internet because everyone already knows that. But most of the people who use Twitter still doesn’t know how to properly maintain the account and keep all the followers entertained instead of losing them. Sure, it takes a lot of work, but after reading this article it’ll be like eating a piece of cake.
If you always follow everyone and anyone that follows you back, then you are doing a big mistake. Those followers that you get from tags like #TeamFollowBack and #InstantFollow are just fake. Those people are only there for getting followers. Following them will be a major mistake. Focus on a subject that you’re interested in and find people with mutual interest and follow them, lots and lots of them. For example, I’ve been following lots of people who likes movies and technology. They followed me back and they also engage in my tweets all the time. Now that’s how you build a good Twitter account. Also remember to followback everyone (except for spammers) and play nice.
Tweepi – This is the tool I use to flush out my followers who doesn’t follow me back. I’ve figured, why should I follow people if they are too rude to follow me back, right? So, I’ve used this tool to remove hundreds of people who didn’t follow me back. Now I have a clean account with only the most important and valuable followers on the network. You can use this tool for many other things like finding followers with similar interests and more.
Twuffer – If you start losing your followers. That means you are not keeping them well entertained. It’s always about keeping all your followers entertained. If you are too busy to tweet every 10 minutes, you can use this tool to schedule your tweets and keep your followers entertained with links and tweets 24/7. Using this tool is easy. But remember not to schedule too many tweets because that will just flood the stream of your followers.
Twellow – This is a large database of Twitter users. Some call it the Yellowpages of Twitter. Well, it’s sort of, kinda like that too. You can use this site to find followers and also make your name out there by signing up for this site. It’s free and it will also give you a boost of reputation on Twitter as well.
Klout – This is the best place to get a summary of your social activity and performance on the Internet. This site will show you detailed statistics about all your social networks including, how you influence others, how popular you are on Twitter and many more things like that. It will keep you motivated to work harder to stay connected with social accounts and play the game to get higher rating on Klout.
Bit.ly & Goo.gl – These are URL shortners. Use them to shorten the links and keep your tweets and info neat. These sites are the well-known and recognized sites for shortening URL’s so, use them for good.
All these techniques are personally tested by me and myself. And I’ve already gained over a thousand of followers within just a couple of weeks. Give it a shot and see how it works out for you. If you have any questions, drop me a line in the comments or on Twitter.
