Everyone wants more followers on Twitter. That means more people to see your tweets in their feed, and the more followers whom you have, the stronger your social proof and more likely that you’ll get even more followers. The more followers you have, the more of an authority within your niche which you are. This article will go over 6 ways of how to get more followers on Twitter.
First and most obviously, make sure to fill out your Twitter profile in full when you sign up. Remember that when someone checks out your profile, they won’t be able to learn much about you based solely on your tweets. This is why it’s important to fill out your profile in full with good information because this is most of what people will have to go on when visiting your Twitter profile and deciding whether or not that they want to follow you. Another aspect of your profile is to get a custom background for yourself rather than going with a stock background from Twitter. I’ll talk about how to create your own background for free and easily for yourself at the end of this article.
Secondly, don’t forget that photos make great Twitter fodder. Exciting, hilarious, or interesting photos get retweeted like nobody’s business, so get to taking and tweeting about your most awesome photos!
Third, make proper use of hashtags. I like to say that hashtags are how people search with a purpose on Twitter. Attach a hashtag to your keywords which relate to your niche and people when searching for that will see your related tweets. If they like what they read they’ll follow you right away.
Fourth, make sure you have a healthy mix when it comes to the type of tweets which you are sending out. You can tweet about your own content, but be sure to mix those in with a healthy mix of conversational tweets and retweets.
Fifth, remember to promote your Twitter profile everywhere else you claim residence online. This means not only on your website but on your Facebook page, as well. My Twitter handle is “convertcopy”, check me out sometime!
Finally, a contest is one of the most explosive ways of how to get more followers on Twitter. Make the prize something coveted which relates to your niche. If you’re in the tech niche, give away the latest gadgetry from Apple. Heck, even if you’re not in the tech niche you can make that the prize because people love those kinds of popular gadgets. You can also use a contest to cover all of your bases and leverage other areas like increasing your amount of Facebook “Likes”.

I mentioned that you should have your own Twitter background. Here is a complete tutorial on how to make a Twitter background for free and easy yourself.
