Why Should I Follow You On Twitter?

This entry was posted by on Thursday, 1 April, 2010 at

I know Twitter etiquette says we should follow those who follow us, but is that the best use of Twitter and your time? I have many people who want to hear from me, but I don’t wish to return the favor. Sure, you can show me how to spam people to get thousands of followers, but I prefer quality over quantity. So what should you do to convince me to follow you? 1. Be Relevant Have a look at my Tweets and who I am. Am I in your target audience? Will your Tweets benefit me? I have hundreds of Tweets presented to me daily. I don’t want rubbish cluttering my feed so you get an extra follower. 2. Be Genuine Add personality to your Tweets. I don’t care if you’re repeating your company messages, just make sure we know you’re a real person. 3. Engage with Me Twitter is a public relations tool. So remember it’s all about building relationships, personal and business. Join in conversations and if you see a Tweet your followers may enjoy – share it. Now you know how to get my attention – follow me. I may just follow you back.
