I’m about to reveal to you, you’ll realize how straightforward growing on Twitter actually is. This process is so simple, you could achieve zero to ten thousand followers if you follow it correctly. So, whether you’re selling a product, offering a service, or just starting out, this guide is perfect for you.
Stage one is zero to a thousand followers, and that means you need to focus on the foundations of building a good profile. The factors that affect your conversion rate are the following:
- Your Profile Picture: Your profile picture is the first thing people see when they visit your profile, so make sure it represents you in the best possible way. A clear and friendly picture can attract people to follow you, and even better if it’s set against a clean and colorful background so that you stand out on the timeline. Another great idea is to get this professionally done and invest some time and money into getting a professional photographer to do it for you. When followers see your face, it creates a personal connection, and they are more likely to engage with your content and eventually buy from you in the future.
- Compelling Bio: Your bio should clearly scream and communicate the value that you offer to your followers. A well-crafted bio tells people who you are, what you do, and why they should follow you. Make it concise yet very impactful.
- Clear Banner: Along with your profile picture and bio, you’re going to want a clear banner which showcases who you are and matches up with the profile.
- Consistent Twittering: Consistently tweeting daily is a non-negotiable if you want to grow on Twitter. Your audience needs to get to know you, and they can’t do that if you go missing for a couple of days. So, make sure that you’re tweeting between two and five times every single day. When you’re first starting out, you want to stay focused to grow fast. If you’re defining your niche, be clear about what you tweet about so you attract like-minded followers who want to go on the journey with you.
Now, here are some tweet rules that you should follow when you’re first starting out: Clear and concise use of language is the name of the game here. You want to use simple words on the timeline. Just remember that writing is designed, so if a tweet looks aesthetically pleasing, it will get more engagement. If it’s grammatically correct and reads well, you’ll likely get it retweeted and liked. But to write good tweets, you don’t need to make it harder than it needs to be. Pick, say, five people and look at exactly how they tweet, when they tweet, and the type of structure and concept they use.
Next up, which is super important when you’ve got a low number of followers, is comments and replies. You’re going to want to respond to every single DM and comment. Show your followers that you value their interaction by responding to all DMs and comments. Engage with your audience, create a sense of community, and encourage them to keep interacting with you. Make your comments meaningful and insightful, and also make sure they’re engaging and authentic.
So, now you know the fundamentals. You’re going to be writing two to five tweets a day and commenting on about 20 to 30 comments on other people’s tweets. Do this consistently for a couple of weeks or months, and you’ll gain 1,000 followers in no time.
So, we’ve got to a thousand followers. The next step is a thousand to five thousand followers. This is where we’re going to introduce the concept of writing good threads. A thread is just a series of tweets, and Twitter recently introduced more long-form content. They’re basically the same thing. All long-form content allows you to do is go into more depth on a specific problem, so you can solve it for the people who are following you. You’re going to want to do between one and two threads per week. Just like a creator’s mini-blog, you want to have a fantastic hook to set the tone and engage the reader to read the rest of the tweets. Every tweet after that needs to be an actionable step or some tips, and then finally a call to action to tell people what to do next.
Next up is to make sure you create unique content. Differentiate yourself by sharing original content drawn from your own experiences. People value authenticity and really love hearing a story. Share your own experiences and set yourself apart from other people.
A great tip next is to keep a swipe file of any of the good tweets you see on the timeline. A simple way of doing this is to just use bookmarks and refer to them when you’re writing your own content. At this stage, you also want to prioritize quality over quantity. As your following grows, focus on maintaining quality, actionable advice so that your content retains loyal followers. You’re also going to have had a couple of highly engaging tweets, so double down and analyze what made those tweets work. Maybe you can give your audience some of the same content, or maybe you can ask a question and take a different spin on that topic.
Now, congratulations! You’ve got yourself to 5,000 followers. The next step is five thousand to ten thousand followers. Now, we’re not changing things up too much at this stage. We’re keeping things consistent. We’re doing the things we’ve done and maybe upping the ante between one and two threads per week to really establish growth. You can double down on threads or increase your engagement. Whatever you can do, you’ll definitely have some momentum once you’ve reached 5,000 followers. You’ll know what a good tweet looks like, and you’ll have built up some writing skills. However, there are some tweaks you can do to make sure that you maximize your follower count.
One of these is to actually limit the number of retweets you do. Keep your profile clean with your own original content. If someone goes to your profile and sees a slew of other people’s work, they won’t think you’re a creator worth following. Twitter spaces are another underutilized hack to get followers fast. All they are is a hosted voice conversation in real-time with your audience. This can create a unique and immersive experience for your followers. Line up some guests, have some fun with it, or join another space and just jump on and have a conversation.
At this stage, you’ll also want to start repurposing tweets that you’ve made maybe four or five months ago. Remember, a really low percentage of your tweets are seen by your audience. Recycling successful content can help you reach new followers who may have missed that content the first time around.
And finally, don’t stop what’s already working. Many people drop their consistency; they stop writing threads, they stop commenting, and they stop doing what got them to this point in the first place. If it’s working, keep on doing it!
There you have it, a foolproof plan to get to your first 10,000 followers.
