Thinking About “Buying” Some Twitter Followers? Read this First!
One of the best advantages of Twitter over other social networks is your ability to connect with Twitter users without them initiating the relationship by “Following” or “Liking” your brand. Now, you may have recently been pitched by a company selling Twitter followers by the bulk, but consider this: why buy followers when you can obtain them free of charge? While it will take some time and effort, you will find that growing your Twitter followers organically will result in more valuable Twitter relationships and connections for your practice!
Here are a few ways to grow your Twitter followers:
- Listorious is a directory of people and Twitter lists. Sign in with Twitter, and add yourself and up to six tags you want to be associated with. For example, “#healthcare,” “#dermatology,” or “#botox.” Users searching those terms on Listorious will find you.
- Twellow is the Twitter yellow pages. To join, you can either log in with Facebook or create a user name and password. Then, connect with Twitter to browse through users to follow, or list yourself under related categories to get followers. A great feature of Twellow is its “Twellowhood” tab, where you can find local Twitter users! This is a great way to reach potential patients and other businesses in your area.
- WeFollow is a user-powered Twitter directory. It displays and categorizes Twitter users according to tags and lists users based on the number of followers they have.
