A lot of people have been requesting this! They keep messaging me: “how did you gain followers so fast?” “What is your strategy?” Well I am here to tell you! Right know I have about 230.8k impressions from over a 28 day period. But it really started less than 28 days ago. I am going to help you grow your following using the strategies I USED these past two weeks.
Find Your Niche
This is the most important. Are you a blogger? Are you a gamer? Are you a youtuber? Figure out what YOU are. This is so important because it will help you decide who you should be following and networking with. You want to be able to relate to your followers and vice versa.
Follow, Follow, Follow!
Start to follow some people you think you can most relate with. Many people will reciprocate the favor and follow you back. Make sure to look at their ratio though if they follow 100 people and have 10.1k followers they most likely won’t follow you back. BUT if you’re interested in their content then follow them for sure. Then if you’re ratios get out of hand a little bit go back and unfollow whoever isn’t following you back.
Start tweeting things you want to talk about or find relatable. You have to capture if your followers attention. Make it so that when they scroll down their feed you give them a reason to read your tweet.
Network With Your Followers
If you’re following someone you find cool then send them a little DM to show that you appreciate them. It could be anything like “Hi I’m _______ and I am a blogger as well! I just really wanted meet other bloggers” or something like “I really loved your latest post about ______” Any small talk to strike up a conversation.
Tweet Out Who You Want To Meet
My most liked tweet as of right now is “I need more blogger friends!!!! Please help haha I’m so awkward” and that caught SO MUCH attention. I had people responding and retweeting and even messaging me. Sometimes you just have to be super honest about how you feel and people will respond.
What makes you, you? My story happens to be that I am chronically ill and going through things that some people can relate to and some people can’t. I try to take people with me through my daily life and show them what I endure.
Make a Support System
Are there certain people you follow that talk to you the most? Do you tweet at each other or like each other’s things? Make sure to strike up a conversation with them frequently. Don’t spam them though.
Interact With Other People’s Tweets
If you see something relatable or funny send a little tweet back! It doesn’t hurt to put yourself out there!
Participate in Threads & Follow RT Blog Accounts
Threads can end up being so overwhelming but its a great to get your name out there. If you feel comfortable enough start your own thread and tag people! There are also multiple RT blog accounts such as @Blogingbabesrt if you tag them when you are posting a new blog they will most likely retweet it.
Make Sure to Participate in #ff (Follower Friday)
This is a GREAT way to gain followers. Shout out a few people who capture your attention or interact with. The more you interact with the more shout outs you could get in the future.
This is so so important. If you don’t spend time on twitter frequently or tweet frequently you will not get far. You have to put in hard work in order to gain.
I hope that you guys can take away some good pointers from this. If you have any questions or comments my DM’s are always open! https://twitter.com/sydneysjourney
