what are the tips to get people to follow me back when i follow them in Twitter
DIGG? Twitter? What network?
sorry forgot to mention twitter
i guess you're talking about twitter, then:
1. target people who may be interested in your niche
2. write interesting/relevant tweets
i have a website in which i write articles dealing with almost everything , who can be more interested in my tweets , i do not have a particular niche
Twitter confuses me. I got a few followers but it seems impossible to get a ton for me..
Patience is the key with Twitter.
You have to have a Twitter name that your followers will be intrigued by to even gain any attention whatsoever.
After that, post tweets that they will want to read.
It's a hit or miss game with Twitter, involving a lot of patience.
1. Follow people that target your niche (just get one person that has lots of followers and follow his followers)
2. Don't follow people that have no picture
3. What I do is I follow people that follow a huge amount of people. For example I'm just "stealing" followers from someone that has 40k followers and follows 40k people. Why? Because these are people that will most likely follow you back
My "record" is about 500 followers in one day after following about 1k people.
That's an excellent idea. When you go for people with high followers it suggests a pattern, same in reverse if your trying for someone that has less followers. They are either really new or very picky. The ones you want to stay away from. Thanks for that, so obvious jeez.
When i build my twitter account with personal purpose i've ddone it just to see how it works. You need to follow people to get followed.Also i got into a network so this way everybody knows what you're doing at that time.tweet them
If the purpose is only gaining more and more followers and the quality of the followers doesn't really matter, there are a few good methods that everybody can use:
1. Following spammer's followers:
"You can tell who a spammer is by them using someone's famous name and spoofing it. For example, say they target Perry Belcher whose real Twitter account is @PerryBelcher. So they'll do something like @PerryABelcher, @PerryCBelcher, @PerryHBelcher, etc. They take the person's name and a put a picture of him up without permission. They then make 1-2 updates with a link in them. That's it. 1-2 updates and they're done. Then they start mass following people until they get suspended and deleted from Twitter."
If a person follows a spammer's account, your chances are very good if that person will follow you back too!
2. Following aggressive follower's followers
I could write a very long reply, but I don't want to quote more here, so you can find this and other useful methods, tips in an ebook called 'Brute Force Twitter', it has been shared in the download section and telling the truth it's neither a brand new ebook, nor a shiny one but it's still worth a read, however the rules of the game slightly changed since then:
Since you said you don't have a niche, try picking a niche that you might have a related article on your website. So using "Justin Beiber" as an example, do a search for Justin Beiber and look at the all name results and pick around until you find one with a ton of followers. The one I looked at hat about 60K. View that users followers and then start following their followers.
I use TweetAttacks and keep my followers at about 200 a day. I know that's conservative, but I've lost a few accounts when I followed a lot more. At the time I was using the free version and forgot I was following and it ran amock. I've since bought the full version and set my limits.
I also tried Twitterfall and watched for people twitting the keyword I was looking for, but honestly, it's easier to go for quantity than to waste my time watching it.
I was going to suggest TweetAttacks because thats what I use. Honestly havent tried Twitterfall.
