How to Get Your First 100 Followers on Twitter?

Getting your first 100 followers on Twitter is actually much easier than many people realize. You can do it in less than 24 hours, if you are willing to invest just 20-30 minutes up front with an additional five minutes each hour or two after that. You don’t need any special software, and you don’t need to pay anybody to do it for you. Seriously, with a time investment of just 30-60 minutes, you can have 100 new followers on your Twitter page by this time tomorrow.

Are you ready to get started? Here we go!

Step 1: Lay Out The Welcome Mat

First things first. Before you go out and try to get people to come check out your Twitter account, you need to give them something to look at when they get there, along with a reason to follow you back. That means you need to thoroughly fill out your profile and then put up a few really good tweets to let them know what you’re all about.

If you have a business logo, then you’ll probably want to use that for your profile pic. Brand recognition is important on Twitter and any other social media platform you use, so be sure to put your logo right out there where everyone can see it.

Next, put up a background banner image that will grab new visitors’ attention and instantly let them something about you.

Write up an attention-grabbing statement about who you are and where to find you – with a clickable link to your website’s homepage – and then your profile will be ready to go. After that just put up a few good tweets and you’re all set. For your tweets, don’t try anything salesy or pushy. Just put out some good photos or videos of your products, with maybe a couple of links to the most popular articles on your blog.

Step 2: Follow 1-2 Influencers In Your Niche

Next, identify one or two influencers in your niche. These might be actual competitors or just popular accounts who are into the same products and services that you offer. If you can’t think of any, then use the Twitter search bar to search for them, using some product keywords. Follow a couple of popular accounts; those who post content similar to yours and who have hundreds of thousands of followers are ideal. The idea is that people who follow these accounts will be more likely to find your account interesting and will therefore be more likely to follow you back and engage with you and your brand.

Step 3: Follow Their Followers

Now that you’ve identified one or two popular accounts in your niche, click on their follower stats and start following their followers. Don’t get too carried away and follow too many at once, because Twitter will see that as potentially spammy or abusive and will flag your account. Just follow a few dozen at a time, every hour or two. Chances are good that 20%-30% of them will follow you back, so you’ll want to follow a few hundred of them over the next day or two to reach your goal.

And that’s really all there is to it! Start by getting your profile ready for new visitors, and go find a couple of influencers in your niche who share content similar to yours. Then just start following their followers every hour or so. Follow these three easy steps and you’ll wake up tomorrow with 100 or more new Twitter followers.

This strategy works great for getting your first several thousand followers, but to retain those followers and accelerate your growth, you’ll also want to be sure to keep tweeting out high-quality content on a regular basis, and you’ll need to engage your new followers by liking and commenting on their tweets.
