    Default Best ways to gain REAL followers for a real business on twitter

    Hey all. Just wanted to start a discussion on what are the best ways to get more Twitter followers for real businesses on twitter. Whether its a restaurant, clothing store, bakery, whatever..


    I've tested out Twitter Ads recently to promote a business account, but it didn't work out very well in getting lots of followers. Also the kinds of followers it got from that campaign were other twitter users who were trying to get more followers as well. AKA, people already following thousands of other accounts.


    So what do you guys do? Heres a few things I do.


    Search for 4square checkins: A lot of times people check in to a business using four square, but never really know the business has a twitter account. So searching for that checkin, and replying to them with a simple comment or following them alerts them to the account.


    search for local tweets in your area: using the "near:90210" or "near:NYC within:15mi" twitter search operator to find local tweeters and interacting with them. Especially good if they tweet or ask about things your business sells.


    Search for tweets about competitor: Searching for mentions of a rival business that is nearby... Interacting with those tweeters can start a dialogue with potential customers who will follow you.


    Following users who follow other business nearby: Finding another local business nearby, and checking their followers to follow or interact those users.


    searching hashtags from your area: Whether a city hashtag, or local hashtags used in your area that you can monitor for tweeters to interact with.




    I'm probably missing a couple other methods I can't remember now.
    But i;m curious to find out what other people do. What are your best methods to get REAL local followers quickly?

    Use Twitter to give things away or provide coupons and discounts for your goods and services. You will easily attract Twitter followers targeted to your business if you offer them something they cannot get elsewhere. Another method is to buy twitter followers, you can try SEOclerks, as there are many freelancers on this site providing twitter followers at a cheap rate.

    OP make sure you steal all your competitors followers by using "followers of a user" feature in a twitter bot. Also target geographically to your city and you should be in the money with any small business as long as your content is up to par.

    Create a parody page and put the page on private. Allow all of the fans who think it's a real page to request it. Then change the profile to the business's info.

    Post some useful information within your niche and follow people within your niche by finding them via hashtags. Favorite, retweet, etc. their tweets and get yourself noticed and you can gain a few followers from that method!

    I use services that let you copy followers from another user. I look up competitor's followers, follow a bunch of them hoping for follow backs since I know they are interested in the same kind of products as my competitor. Some sites that do this are 12 Star Social, Just Unfollow, and I think Manage Flitter does too but you have to pay for it.
