Follow to get Followers

If you're entering the Twittersphere and aiming to increase your reach, you might be overlooking some super simple and quick practices to help you gain quality followers. Today's Twitter tip is this:

Follow other tweeters. It's one of the easiest things you can do on Twitter. You probably casually follow those who have been retweeted or mentioned somewhere, which is good, but I'm talking about actively seeking out a few dozen tweeters that you're not already following.

This morning I logged into NK's Twitter, noticed something interesting in the 'Who to Follow' module and clicked Follow. After viewing all the suggestions, I had racked up a good amount of new resources. Next up I decided to browse by interest and searched for a couple relevant topics that I'd like to see more of in my feed. Fifteen minutes later, NK follows over 50 more tweeters than the day before.


In the time it took to write this post, NK gained 16, er...17 followers – hopefully more by the end of the day. Two things are happening: (1) people I subscribed to are following me back, and (2) users with similar interests are subscribing because of who I follow.

It's as simple as that. Take 15 minutes here or there to add to your subscriptions – could be once a week or once a month. As long as you keep it up, it will not only increase your reach; it will keep your feed diverse and full of new content.

So go out and get ‘em! And while you're at it, follow Newhall Klein.
