Social networks are a great way to create yourself heard. Every person nowadays, no matter where they live or what they do or how much they earn has something to contribute or tell society in general. The old man resting on the park bench includes a perspective on life. Maybe it is miles away from what a penthouse dweller thinks. However it can be insightful to a person nowadays. Yet this infinite wisdom is probably lost because it never reaches anyone. Kind of like someone who has no followers on Twitter.

You may be tweeting something profound 10 times a day, but where does it go if nobody follows you? The reply is nowhere! So what is the use of using a Twitter account if you don't possess a following? Very desirable, you'll say. But how would you acquire one? Are you able to weave a magic wand and obtain hundred people to follow you? No! the initial steps you are taking are extremely crucial since they set a dark tone for that rest.

Which line would you rather join? One which has punks and weirdoes, a treadmill which has people you admire and appear as much as? With regards to building a Twitter following, you need to take small steps.


Here are some small things you can do to obtain twitter followers -

1) Add your overall friends on Twitter and follow them. Choose people you are sure will follow you back. This should keep with a minimum of 2-5 followers. This really is better than zero.

2) Establish your objective - advertising your company, promoting your service, promoting an underlying cause, developing a support group - pick yours.

3) Pick a few top leaders inside your field. For a technology startup, this would be Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Apple etc. They probably will not follow you back, but that is ok. You are establishing your interest here.

4) Select eminent personalities, gurus or well-known people you admire and follow them.

5) Select or search on top firms in your area or state doing the same thing you need to do. Follow them. These could become your peers or competitors.

By now you may be following 50 people. Watch for 2-3 days plus some of these might follow you back. Don't lose heart when they don't!

6) Explore things that interest you - city, state, profession, hobby etc. Read the bios of individuals and follow those you are feeling a connection with.

7) Now that you have a bunch of people you're following, we will dig deeper. Choose any leader, company, guru etc. that you follow. Click on their followers. Oftentimes, this can be in thousands, but that's ok. Now start following some of these. Chances that they'll follow you're slightly higher since you share some interests now and they'll view it.

8) Continue doing this process with everyone that follows you. This can take time, but gradually you'll be able to construct a pleasant listing of followers. This can not occur overnight!

So are you prepared to take these baby steps? The next main task would be to start speaking with your followers. If you want to 'Follow and Forget', what's the utilization of using a Twitter profile anyway?
