How to Get 100 Real Targeted Active Twitter Followers Everyday

real targeted active twitter followers everyday

I’m not going to bother with the “What Is Twitter” side of things because there are thousands of posts online where that information can be found. Obviously you know what Twitter is and the potential is has or you wouldn’t be reading how to increase your followers. I’ve been on Twitter since January 2008…wow…I just realized that was 8 years ago. I’ve always loved it, but didn’t always know how to use it. When I first started, I would tweet random things about my day. After all it was “microblogging”. I was never one of those people who tweeted when they showered, ate, and slept…nope, not me. Ahem.

I tweeted on the regular for about a year, and then it fizzled. I always kept my account, installed the apps on various devices, and tweeted on average about once a day until I could figure out a good use for Twitter.

I started paying a little more attention in 2014 and even did one of those follow train things to get some followers. It worked okay, but the followers weren’t targeted and most of them didn’t stick. As time went on, the sheer tenure made me want to stay along with things like watching a fun hashtag like #1stRunMovieLines or #FacebookDown. I rounded out in July of 2015 with about 13K tweets under my belt, but not a lot of followers to show for it. I had around 1200 give or take a few.

Picking Twitter Up and Dusting It Off

I spent a good chunk of 2014 as the Social Media Manager for an established SEO firm. As a part of my job there, I had to be on top of the Social Media world and make sure our practices adjusted as the industry changed. Naturally, Twitter was a big part of all of that and I ran many accounts for people in all different industries ranging from dentists to landscapers to painters to motivational speakers…in Israel! It was an awesome experience. If I had only know then what I know now!

Yeah, so in July 2015 I learned about an amazing tool that set my Twitter account on fire. I’m not going to go into too much detail because it’s actually a service I provide. If you look around here enough, you can probably find a post about it! However, I’m contemplating going full disclosure and doing a course on it. Comment below if that’s something you’d like to see. I will tell you the main idea behind the tool and system I’m using is more tweets…TONS of tweets. I’m sending out about 670 tweets per month on average, so it’s nothing that monumental. That’s about 22 tweets per day. Lots of room for growth there…or scaling down if the market demands it.

How Many Times Per Day Should You Tweet

It’s a loaded question. Buffer posts two contradicting numbers on their blog. If you don’t know who Buffer is, they are a platform software for users, small businesses, and agencies where you can connect your social media accounts. From inside Buffer, you can schedule posts to your accounts, send the same post to multiple accounts from one place, and a lot more. I dig them because of their robust free plan.

Anyway, in this infographic, Buffer says 3 tweets per day will suffice and that users actually lose engagement after that third tweet.

Well, that just seems ludicrous to me. When people see your tweet, how to you know how many that is for today? I have more than 3000 followers as of this writing, and I don’t have a clue how many times they tweet per day. It’s kind of a pain to find out. I’d rather engage with their 4th tweet than attempt it. 😛

I think Buffer knows their stuff though because I’ve seen this next number in more than one place, and I’ll show you. Hubspot landed in the 22-tweet range. Simply Measured says “tweet your heart out”. Social Media Examiner fell in the 1 to 4 tweet practice like the infographic above. How many tweets are right for Buffer themselves? 14.

From their blog:

14 times per day, from midnight to 10:00 p.m. Central Time, never more than once per hour; seven times per day on weekends, from 3:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., roughly every three hours

What’s good enough for them is good enough for me and my clients. When I set up a client with my system, I promise a minimum of 14 tweets per day. For me, it was the tweet volume first that brought new followers to my account. Like I said, without some extra clicks which we know people don’t do to buy things or check out your links, how is anyone going to know if it’s tweet number 1 or tweet number 21? I say the more the merrier!

Let’s Look At Some Numbers

I don’t want to bore you too much with stats so I’m going to keep this simple and brief. Cool? Cool. This is my account summary from Twitter Analytics (<<= Check yours; it’s FREE) from June 2015:

twitter analyticsThis was actually in the middle of an uptick from the end of 2014 when I was getting new followers in the single digits! My Twitter account basically just sat there.

Let’s look at August 2015:

twitter stats

That’s a bit of a jump there, huh? At this point, I was using a service to automatically welcome my new followers with a welcome tweet and had been for a year or so. This jump in stats was the result of more tweets going out and that’s about it. I also diversified my tweets to include a good number of my interests and thanks to that tool, I was also tweeting out more images.

I just want to show you one more thing, and then I’m going to share the exact protocol I follow to produce these results.

twitter followers

This bar graph shows my followers for the last 90 days. That’s a good amount of time to show the steady gain. I wish I could stretch this out longer so you could see back to July. I’m sure there would be a stark difference. Since I can’t show that, I want to talk about that upswing halfway through December. I talked to a friend who has 35+K followers that he says he built in 6 months. He has a second account in the mid-20000 range. I asked him his secret, and what he told me is most of what I’m going to share with you. I also increased my tweets.

I saw a gain of around 70 followers in one day and began getting pretty close to 100 a day half-ass doing what he told me. These numbers can be swayed quite easily by just tweaking two things: the amount of tweets you’re putting out and the number of people you go out manually and follow. Which brings me to what you shouldn’t do with your Twitter account.

Twitter Don’t’s

Well, you can do what you want to, but I don’t recommend these things unless you want to rob yourself and your followers of a great experience with a unique network.

  • Don’t ever buy followers. All you get is junk followers and bots. My system and method get you real, targeted, active, organic followers that you can use for various Internet Marketing purposes. For example, Twitter is awesome for helping to build your list!
  • Don’t automate everything. There are ways to do things with the least amount of effort and it still look like you touched it. If you do automate it all, you will still see results, but they won’t be as good
  • Don’t welcome new followers with DM’s (Direct Messages). I hate DM’s, but that’s irrelevant. It’s important to note that I see a lot of accounts out there that say in their bio, “Do not DM.” I would do the same in mine if the real estate wasn’t so limited
  • Don’t autofollow people.

100 New Followers Per Day

This isn’t complicated and you might already be getting 100 followers a day. That means you can use this to get more! There are several reasons why this is a good number:

  • It’s nice and round
  • It’s a decent amount. That’s 3000 new followers per month. You’ll make influencer (100,000 followers) 33 months! I could’ve done that two times over by now. If you want faster results, tweak the two variables I mentioned above.
  • If you’re new to Twitter, it’s a lot.
  • It’s a steady climb

Let’s Do This!

All the accounts in the steps below are free to create and use. Most, if not all of them have a premium plan, but it is not required for this method.

  1. Optimize your bio. Use hashtags pertaining to your niche/market/business/interests. Fill everything out completely
  2. Make sure you have a decent-looking profile image and header. You can use Canva.com to create your Twitter header image
  3. Start tweeting. You need 10 to 15 tweets before you begin following other users. Twitter will generate your first tweet for you, you just pick between the options they offer
  4. Join Klout.com by logging in with Twitter and fill out your profile. Click the Explore tab for tons of Tweets to send out which should be based on the interests your selected when you created your profile. Schedule as many as you like. Klout only schedules 3 tweets per day, so you’re going to need a little bit more, and you’ll need to do this about 1 per week. However, I have not run into a limit as to how far out you can go. I have never exceeded a week or 10 days.klout
  5. Create an account at GetCrate.co. This should only consist of signing in with your Twitter account. Follow the prompts to edit the Sample Crate for more tweets you can schedule like Klout. You may need a Buffer account for scheduling. The free plan limits your queue to 10 tweets. You’ll need to do this everyday to reach the 14-tweet minimum to pull in followers
  6. Create an account with Unfollowers.me by logging in with Twitter. This is where you can manage your followers and set up your automatic welcome tweets. Click the Automate tab at the top of the page. Check the box next to Welcome Tweet. I think it’s default, but if not, type #welcomeTweet {users}. Then you can type whatever you want after that, but make sure you leave space for a few users. Once everything looks like below, scroll down to the bottom and click the green Save button. Each time you receive a new follower, they will receive a welcome tweet. You’ll get a lot of engagement from these: likes, retweets, and mentions.

  7. Follow some people! You can do this several ways, but you need to follow at least 100 a day and I recommend doing this part manually for now. If you noticed when you were in Klout, it suggests people to follow in the right sidebar. Follow any of interest, but don’t be worried if you don’t find any. You can also use a great tool in your Unfollowers.me account in the left sidebar called Copy/Followers/following.

    This allows you to copy followers from any account, so if you find a Twitter user you really like that represents your interests or market well, you can put their twitter username (handle) in the field and see a list of accounts to follow. The free Unfollowers.me account limits you to following a total of 50 users.

    Finally, you can use Twitter itself to follow as many people as you like. I actually don’t know what the daily limits are because I’ve never hit them. Either from your Twitter Home page or your Profile page, you will see this box:

    who to follow twitterThese are recommendation from Twitter. Click View all to open them full page. Follow anyone who strikes your fancy. I like to follow people who are in my market, local people, cool companies, entrepreneurs, and more. I never follow people with a blank bio, who are hawking followers, or do not have a profile image. Repeat daily. Click Find friends to add users from your contact lists in Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc. You can use Twitter search as well to find people to follow by searching for your keywords.

  8. After 7 days have passed, begin going into Unfollowers.me on a daily basis and unfollowing anyone who has unfollowed you. Unfollow those your have followed who have not followed you back in 7 days.

That’s it. Rinse and repeat until you reach the desired number of followers. Eventually, your account will kind of take care of itself and will take a lot less work.

If you are interested in my system that automates your Tweets indefinitely and allows you to cut out Klout and Crate from your steps, it’s just $5 to start. You can also do other cool things like send your tweets to Facebook, a spreadsheet, or tweet the videos you like on YouTube!

If you found this post helpful or saw results from implementing my method, I’d love to hear from you in the comments. If you have friends that could benefit from this, please consider giving it a share!
