Many Twitter users want to have more followers to increase the reach of their tweets. You can read the best tips on how to make you and your Twitter profile more popular and thus attract more followers in this practical tip.
Tip 1 – Be interesting
People who follow you on Twitter naturally want to be entertained by you. Post interesting photos, set the mood with funny tweets, or get potential followers thinking by tweeting about more serious topics.
The most important thing is to simply add variety to your tweets – that way you’ll appeal to more tastes and attract more followers. Additionally, base your content on current topics that are moving the world right now.
Tip 2 – Use prominent hashtags
In order for someone to become aware of your profile, that person first has to find you. The best way to do that is through your tweets, which you have embellished with hashtags. For example, if “#Bundesliga” is a “trending topic” right now, tweet something appropriate and tag it with the same hashtag.
Already your tweet on the given topic will appear and other soccer fans on Twitter will see it and follow you. But again, your tweet needs to stand out from others and of course you need to tweet regularly on the topic.
Tip 3 – Find the golden mean
If you tweet too little or not at all, you will be unfollowed just as quickly as someone who posts too much. Find the happy medium and send out tweets regularly throughout the day.
But don’t start annoying your followers by sending 10 tweets per hour. If you find the “magic” middle, you’re unlikely to disappoint and lose followers anytime soon.
Tip 4 – Introduce yourself
Tell something about yourself and thereby tell potential followers why they should follow you. The best way to do this is to use the “Biography” field in your Twitter profile. Here is space for everything you want to tell your followers.
It’s also worth using hashtags here, and again, don’t overdo it. Make it clear, briefly but crisply, what Twitterers can expect to find on your profile. Your tweets may also contain personality. This is how you portray a closeness to followers.
Tip 5 – Use media
You should always stay up to date and quietly go with the flow. Make use of other media and post videos, pictures, audios or GIFs (moving images). In this way, you can draw attention to yourself by posting interesting things.
Go ahead and search specifically for funny videos to post afterwards. If only one person with 1,000 followers retweets that tweet, it may get retweeted again and you’ll get followers who want to see and hear more from you.
Tip 6 – Be creative
No one wants to follow someone who doesn’t have a profile or header image. Choose images for your profile design conscientiously and become a real eye-catcher. You can use our cover images for this purpose or create your own cover.
Your profile photo should be square and have a dimension of 400 x 400 pixels. It appears to the left of each of your tweets and should therefore be meaningful and unique – according to the motto: “A picture is worth a thousand words!”.
Tip 7 – Communicate with others
Find another Twitter with the same interests as you. Retweet and reply to his tweets to show the person that you have the same interests.
Just start a conversation and talk, show that you are likeable. Then, if you still follow the person, you are likely to be followed back in return.
