14 Effective Keys to Engage & Attract Followers on Twitter, Part 1

In the past couple of blogs we discussed the reasons why you should have a Big Twitter Following and How to Manage a Large List  to create a foundation for your Twitter experience.

Regularly practicing these Keys will be the nectar to attract swarms of new followers.

1. Let Your Authentic Personality Fly ~ People love to connect with real people, not automated or robotic accounts.  Show us your personality in your tweets and @ Replies.  You’d be surprised how many people are watching you in actions.  Give them the best you and they will follow.

2. Tweet Consistently ~ Showing up every day is vital to create the Know, Like & Trust relationship needed to invite them to look at your site and offers.  Important to note: Tweet in moderation – especially when first starting and leave room to allow your audience to absorb your messages.

3. Tweet Great Content ~ The majority of your tweets should not be about you.  Share interesting, inspiring, educational, entertaining or breaking news – industry specific or of general world interest.  Apply the 80/20 rule – only 20% of your messages will be self-promotion.  When you apply the Keys in this post you’ll be surprised by the reach that those 20% messages will have by your legions of faithful fans and ambassadors.

4. Ask Questions & Respond to Answers ~ Asking questions that generate responses is an art form.  Focus on general questions that more people can answer and in a way that probes for a deeper thought. (This has been very effective in my Facebook Business Pages). On Twitter deeper questions may take several tweets to share their answer – try something like . . . What was your 1st Car?  Your Best Concert experience?

5. Ask for Help ~ Many bloggers and content creators from time to time experience writer’s block.  Asking your audience for ideas for your next blog series, or getting a feel of what problems they are having in their life or business may help stimulate new products and services to help solve their current problem.

6. Promote Others ~ Everyone loves to see their name mentioned by someone else, and it has deeper meaning for them if you are seen as Twitter Hierarchy – as your list grows there is a sense of credibility that is bestowed upon you by the followers you’ve attracted.  Share their blog or an article or Facebook message they posted or a simple RT.

7. Leave Room ~ Keep your Tweets between 100 to 120 characters for multi-generational RTs – creates space for 2 or 3 peoples names to be included in your messages RTed without having to edit.
