You have a Twitter account but no traffic from Twitter?
This is all about how to get Twitter followers and targeted traffic from Twitter.
It’s no good just to have a Twitter account and maybe post something from time to time. You will need this – A Twitter Strategy.
Okay …. I will stop writing about what I am going to write about … and get to the point…. Are you ready? Okay here we go…
First of all.. Why do you need Twitter?
First of all it can give you maybe the largest referral traffic source.
Your competitors – I am sure – are already using it. So if you are not using it you are behind already.
But it can also potentially help you to get higher ranking in Google and Bing for the regular organic searches – yes its true 🙂
First thing first… How to get followers
You will need to get not only traffic – but you also need to get the right kind of traffic. Relevant traffic.
The best way to get followers is to follow the same kind of people. So type in your keywords and check out the people and start to follow them.
Take another keyword and do the same again.
After you have done this with some of your interest and keywords – check out your competitors. Who do they follow? Then start to follow your competitors followers too.
Very easy right?
But but but but ….
There’s always a but – lol. The maximum amount of followers you can follow is 2000.When you get to 2000. You will have to wait until your followers also reaches 2000.
After that you can get 10 percent higher . That’s it 2200 – and then wait again until your followers reach 2200.
There is no limit of maximum number of Twitter followers, who can follow you.
So when you reach 2000 you will have to unfollow the people that don’t follow you back !! This way you get the relevant traffic.
So here is a working plan for you
One of the most important things in the Twitter strategy is to do it the professional way. So… The first week you will add about 300-400 every day. But in the weekend you will remove those people that don’t follow you back.
Just to add people is easy – but it’s important you remove the people that don’t follow you back.
There are some tools you can use – check out TweetAdder. With this program you can use to unfollow, but you can also use to schedule your tweets, search for potential followers and a lot more. Try it 🙂
Next step in your Twitter strategy is to get more accounts
This way you can get 5 times as many followers then just with one account. So do it.
If you are selling used cars – you can have an account about used cars, one about cars, one about ford cars, one about Toyota etc..
Now its time to tweet
If you have been on Twitter you know the problem – how to get noticed. There are so so so many tweets out there right?
Okay a good strategy is to tweet in blocks. So every time you are going to tweet make 4 tweets. Your first 3 tweets can be quotes from experts, ideas, news – but in the last of the 4 tweets you make a link to your own blog.
Because its the last one – its the one that people will see first.
Do yourself a favour – dont just do a tweet – have a twitter strategy – and you will get your traffic.
