Unless you are a large business, you are going to have to work at building an initial following on Twitter
So, what’s the secret everyone seems to know? Studies have shown that the more you tweet, the more followers you are likely to have. Twitter will essentially help bring in new customers, especially if you are a small business.
To help grow your initial base of followers, here are some methods you can try.
Make the most of your LinkedIn and email connections. The chances of being followed by someone you already have a relationship with are much higher. Visit your LinkedIn Contacts page and select “setting”. You will have the option to export your contact into a .CSV file. The file can then be effortlessly uploaded to your email account contacts. Then, you can import your email contacts into Twitter.
Take advantage of time saving tools to schedule your tweets. Hootsuite, a low cost tool, allows you to schedule your tweets in advance so that you maintain a constant flow of content, all while saving time. By using this tool, you should see more engagement and followers.
