Getting Your Next 1,000 Followers – Using Twitter Lists
So you are on Twitter, been posting for a few weeks, months or even years, how do you get your next 1,000 followers?
Even if you are lucky enough to create your own content, “Getting Social” is about sharing and this means you need to share content. Which requires you to ReTweet (RT) or Mention Tweets (MT). Sharing puts other peoples content on your Tweet feed, and it’s great to “share the love”.
Let’s Get Organized
To move to the next level and get the next 1,000 followers requires you to get (more) organized.
The best way to do this, is by using Twitter Lists.
- Lists allow you to group people by subject, niche, interest.
For example you can create a list for your Niche of Thought Leaders, Journalists, Market Influencers. All good back ground reading to be a specialist in your niche but also good material of interest for your audience. Meaning you can RT and MT content that will be good for your followers and the future followers you will attract.
Creating a List is Easy
