Theres no doubt that twitter has become a social colousis with over 250 million active monthly users.  Whether you are just starting out on Twitter, or have been on it for a few years, there’s one question that’s always there: “How do I gain more Twitter followers?” Here are some tips below that will help you increase your following and help you build up a huge twitter following.


1 - Use twitter appropriately

This may sound simplistic but this is the starting point of your follower growth. If you’re a business, make sure your Twitter handle is visible on your website and don’t be afraid to add it to your email signature as well. This way, you make yourself available to your customers and you gain followers that are genuinely interested in what you have to say.

If you have a blog, incorporating social share buttons is a must! People can then share your content with their followers and make your Twitter handle visible to new audiences. And if you’re active in other social networks, adding the link to your Twitter account in your bio, increases the chances of people following you across channels. Talk about a fan base!

2 - Don’t forget to share

As obvious as it may be, when sharing someone else’s content, including their Twitter handle in your tweet can help your follower growth. This simple gesture, not only helps improve your engagement rates, but also it increases the chances of getting followed by these users.

The same goes for hashtags. Every hashtag represents a Twitter community that users are a member of. For example, if I am interested in #Social Media I would most likely follow this hashtag on Twitter. Using hashtags that are relevant to the content you’re sharing and your industry, basically puts you on the Twitter map, brings you followers that matter to you and are more likely to engage.

3 - Be active in the twitter community

Live-tweeting during an event is a great way to gain new followers! All you need to do is track the hashtag of the event to monitor what people are saying and contribute to the discussion.

4 - The right people are there, follow them

Start by following and engaging with the influencers in your field, but make sure you also interact with people that tweet about topics similar to yours. How do you go about that? By monitoring relevant keywords and hashtags using tools like Tweet deck or Hootsuite. This way, you can identify which accounts are worth following, easily jump into conversations and land a follow-back from someone who is relevant to you!

5 - Gain more followers

Gaining more Twitter followers means expanding your Twitter reach. But how to do that the right way without breaking “Twitter laws”? Make your tweets relevant to your targeted audience and with decent content. And if people are interested on what you tweet, they’ll follow!

Facebook is still the biggest social media site around today with well over 1 billion users and counting. We use Facebook to get back in touch with old friends to catch up with relatives who live far away, and as an easy way to wish people Happy Birthday.


But when it comes to using Facebook for business, for online marketing for many people still aren’t quite sure how to go about using Facebook for their internet marketing business. When you set up your Facebook page or fan page you will need to get more shares for your content to increase your chances of your Facebook page getting more unique visits.


So on that note here are 3 tips on getting more Facebook shares on your website

1. You have to go mobile. 

More than 70 percent of Facebook traffic comes through mobile devices, which means you must optimize content for mobile in every possible way. Ideally, anything you're linking to should be easy to read or view on a mobile device.

“Make sure to size and crop photos to fit Facebook's mobile dimensions,” says Laura Nathan-Garner, program director of integrated media communications at Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer Center. Images sized to 560 X 292 pixels are optimal for full display in the mobile news feed.

“Headlines and teasers should also be shortened when sharing link previews to ensure readers will get the full message,” she says. Copy within posts must be concise, she adds, and the first paragraph or teaser should entice readers to click through to longer-form text.

2. If posts take off fast don’t be afraid to boost them. 

“When boosting posts, don't boost everything, and don’t boost before posts have gotten noticeable engagement,” says Nathan-Garner. “Audiences are more likely to engage if they see others have already ‘liked,’ commented on or shared a post.”

She warns that you may end up wasting money by prematurely boosting a post that doesn't resonate with people.

“No matter how good you think a post is, it's sometimes not what your audience wants,” says Nathan-Garner, “and sometimes the post you don’t expect to boost ends up being the one everyone loves.”

3. Would you ‘share’ this post

When people see your post, will they instantly want to share it with their friends? “If you don't think people will share your post, it's probably not going to help you achieve your page’s goals. To know whether something’s worthy of sharing, consider whether it's:

Colourful, interesting, surprising, inspiring, different, timely

“Another success factor is whether your post addresses your audience's problems, interests or desires,” for example if you have built up an audience for your niche of archery tips and lessons then chances are your audience don’t what to hear anything about the online marketing niche but they would love to hear about some new piece of archery related equipment you may have tried and it you have photos of this when then all the better.

Also some of the most successful posts give advice that speaks to a problem that you may have gone through and how you dealt with that problem and came out the other side.  Don’t be afraid to give advice on your real world problems.
