The truth about why people are not following you on Twitter

November 22, 2011 4:02 pm

The one thing that frustrates us is when people say Twitter doesn’t work for them and that it’s a waste of time – a fad! Ahem, 175 million people would disagree!

It may not be ‘working for you’ because you’re doing it wrong!

Here’s a list of things that you could do to increase your followers:

  • If you’re following 1000 people, have 20 followers and no updates, you’re not going to get followed. It’s not rocket science!
  • If you have a rubbish Avatar it will reflect on your brand. And if you don’t have one at all… say no more.
  • Stop giving it the hard sell. Nobody wants to hear about how great you are in every Tweet. Balance it out with interesting Tweets that people actually want to read.
  • No location, website or bio? Twitter is all about being brief. Make use of every inch available to encourage followers.
  • If you don’t have the time to do it properly, people will notice. mmadigital manages social media for lots of high profile clients. Take a look here to find out more.

Rant over! Thanks for listening 🙂
