3 FAST Ways to Get More Twitter Followers

Get more Twitter Followers

Do you know why the 4th of July fireworks are so popular?

It’s because everyone is waiting for the ending when the colors explode in the sky, one right after another.

That’s really what happens to your Twitter account when you grow it the right way. You start with a few dozen followers and then almost like magic – when you are doing the right things – the fireworks take off for an incredible ending.

But it never really does end. It just keeps getting better and better.

Even Established Internet Marketers Have to Learn the Scoop on Twitter

I learned that this is what happens in affiliate marketing as well. I talk about it a lot in my podcast, The Affiliate Buzz. This podcast is in its eighth year now.

Anyway, I have 3 ways for you to learn how to get more Twitter followers and then a way for you to manage all your followers after that.

You may already know me, and if not, I’m the kind of guy that has to give you the complete picture of what’s really happening about a topic.

Now with these three strategies I grew my list from hundreds of followers to 5372 followers. I’m working on taking that number up to 10,000 and then to 20,000. I’m excited because I know how to get free twitter followers.

And I know that it’s going to happen because each day I get dozens more followers.

So what are you marketing? Kitchen bar stools, dental services, self-improvement books, mobile phones, iPads, or even a Golden lift chair ?

Whatever you are marketing, these strategies will work. And they are all legitimate techniques that won’t cost you your Twitter account.

What to Do to Increase Your Twitter Followers ASAP

Strategy #1. Hey, Mom, I Have My Own Syndicated Newspaper!

Boy, would she be proud of you.

Of course your dad would ask you how much that business endeavor ran you and what it’s going to take to keep it up for the next six months. He remembers how John Kennedy, Jr. failed at his magazine, George and thinks you may, too.

Hogwash! Not you! Here’s why – and how to do it.

  1. First get an idea of what I am talking about by reading my own syndicated daily newspaper at http://paper.li/JamesMartell/1308523225 called The Guest Blogging Daily.
  2. You’ll set up your own at www.paper.li.
  3. Just follow the steps in the sequence and you’ll have your newspaper up and running before Mom gets her apple pie out of the oven. (They’ll ask you for keywords and you’ll select articles from contributing writers.)
  4. Your followers increase because they want everyone to know they made it to the big time – a syndicated newspaper – with your newspaper. So they tweet and tweet and retweet and just like firework explosions, the followers come in.

It’s a beautiful design and you don’t need to lift a finger after the set up is done. Remember that you’re doing all this without knowing a stitch about editing, writing, layout and design, and magazine or newspaper distribution. Phenomenal!

Why not get started today?

Strategy 2. Guest Blogging, Anyone? Yes, Me! Me! Me!

That’s what you should be saying. You’ll step right up to the plate.

Just as there’s an easy way to create a syndicated newspaper, there’s also an easy way to do guest blogging . Simply create little useful tips for people in your niche.

Or here’s one easier than that – comment on the comments on the blog!

Now remember this – in the bio at the end of the article, what will you write? Something simple like “Follow me on Twitter at _______ and get ________.”

This is a great way to learn how to increase Twitter followers .

Strategy 3. Equate Thank You’s with Twitter Followers!

With this one, simply change a few blank lines of code on the thank you page of your site (for opt-ins, newsletters, white papers, and special reports) to say something like this:

“You’re invited! Please follow me on Twitter!

Here’s why:
1.
2.
3.

Start right now! See you soon!”

And by the way, you can manage all the followers with Tweet Deck. Google it and find out more. It’s what I use to stay on top of things.

That’s all it takes. Explode your twitter followers to 4th of July proportions.

Promoting your Twitter account on your posts’ call to action seems to be effective as well, particularly if those that have read your content really liked it.

Hi James,

Have you seen steps #3 and #4 in the Twitter Best Practices post? They can really make a big difference in blog traffic as well as Twitter followers.

You may want to update your CommentLuv plugin. For some reason it is pulling only one post about three posts back instead of anything current (and alas that special is over) and even putting another URL in the Website field didn’t make it change. Very strange.

It’s the latest version of the plugin

the best of the best method discussed here and every where is to network with people and make them feel worth.

I do agree with this, because if we communicate with them we are indeed marketing.

So many work so hard to get a massive amount of followers. Then they get so overwhelmed that they never even tweet, they are too busy getting followers.
