It’s more important than ever to build a Twitter following that matters. It’s important for you to have followers that would like what you tweet. If your tweet about social media, then having followers who are social media managers, social media marketers, and so on will allow you to create quality connections. Those are the targeted followers, and these are the three method to get those people to follow you.
The first thing you need to do is target individuals based on your interests and what you tweet about. This will ensure that you have a targeted audience which will result in more retweets than ever. Using Twitter’s search feature is a great way to get more followers. If you tweet about social media, search for social media managers or social media marketers.
When you find people who you want as followers, it’s very important to implement the second call of action. You have to follow the person who you want to follow you. People won’t always follow you back, but the better the follow ratio, the more likely you are to get a follow back from a targeted member of your growing audience.
After you use the Twitter search, I highly recommend using Twellow which allows you to find people to follow based on different categories. There are plenty of categories to choose from such as sports, entertainment, technology, and so on. By following a targeted group of people, you are certain to get some follow backs. When you get those follow backs, you are getting quality followers.
On Twitter, or any social network for that matter, the big numbers of followers don’t always mean a targeted audience. Getting the targeted audience is a bit more difficult than getting an audience in general. However, once you get the targeted audience, that audience will listen to everything you have to say.
