2000 Twitter Followers! Great Milestone!

Last Update: Jun 29, 2016

14.9K followers

For those of you who've been following me and my blog posts you'll notice that a lot have been on Twitter. Twitter has been great for me providing me with contacts I would have never gotten which has helped me promote my new site. In my personal experience it seems to be much easier to get followers on Twitter than other social media sites but I think it also depends on what niche you are in.

If you were in the food niche perhaps Pinterest or something more visual will perform better for you. I've been consistently posting on other social media sites like Google+, Facebook, and Pinterest but have been focusing more on Twitter.

2000 Followers!

It's been about 3 and a half months now here at WA and I've been able to consistently grow my Twitter following. Today I checked my account as I always do every morning and I noticed I hit 2000 followers! This was actually one of my goals from last month which I missed so I'm pretty excited that I finally reached it!

It's been hard getting more followers after hitting the 5,000 follow limit but I'm using some techniques keep my follower-to-follow ratio in check. I've been also using tools to help me schedule my tweets and get more retweets which I've mentioned in my previous WA blog posts..


First Training Course!

As I've mentioned before, I'm working on a BIG Twitter training. This will be my first training and it will consist of 10 lessons. It'll start out by first getting you set up with Twitter then slowly progress through more advanced things as you go through each lesson. There's a LOT to cover so I've been working hard these past few weeks trying to put things together. I'm almost done writing the first draft but want to make sure it's good so I'll go over it a few more times and tweak things or add things that I've missed. I've added some of my personal experiences and tips and tricks as well to help you get more followers.

Here is an overview of the course for those who are curious what it'll contain:

  • Lesson 1: Getting Started – Step-by-step guide on how to signup for Twitter
  • Lesson 2: Account Overview – An intro on how to setup your profile setup and account overview
  • Lesson 3: Twitter Lingo and Guidelines - Explain basic Twitter terminology like RT, TT, etc as well as go over what you can and can’t do on Twitter
  • Lesson 4: Tweeting – Information on how to tweet, use of links, images, videos, hashtags, retweets, likes
  • Lesson 5: Lists – Lists
  • Lesson 6: Keyboard Shortcuts - shortcuts to make you be more efficient with Twitter
  • Lesson 7: Searching – Learn how to search effectively in Twitter
  • Lesson 8: Building Your Network – Tips and tricks on what I did to get followers including free tools that I’ve used
  • Lesson 9: Twitter Ads – Paying to promote on Twitter
  • Lesson 10: Twitter Analytics – Analyzing your Twitter account

Hopefully I can refine things and get it out within the next week. I haven't actually written it in WA's training tool so I'll have to see how easy/hard it is to port it over. There's a lot of images as well so I'm sure it'll take some time putting it all together in the training.

Anyway, back to work. I never knew how much work it would be creating the training but I'm really excited and hopefully you'll like it and gain something out of it.

Congratulations, Awesome work, just nice!

Thanks a lot Alexia!

Congrats on completing your goal of $2,000 followers on twitter. Also I'm looking forward to your training when it's completed definitely will look into that. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks! I wish it really was "$2000" instead of followers lol.

wow, congratulations. I look forward to your upcoming training!!

Awesome! Hopefully I can get it out soon

Great achievement you have been very proactive congratulations and wish you continued success

Thanks a lot Katie!

Thanks so much for your post and congratulations on reaching 2000 twitter followers! I have never used twitter but do want to find out more so look forward to finding out more about your course. Can you please explain how having twitter followers translates into making money? or is it simply a tool to build presence and profile? Thankyou Mica

Thanks Mica! You don't directly make money off of Twitter. Usually you either have something to sell (if you are a business or actually produce stuff yourself) or are an affiliate and direct users to things other people are selling and you get a commission (affiliate marketing). For me and most people on WA they are affiliate marketers. They sign up for programs that let you promote their products like Amazon and every time someone buys something from your link then you get commission.

Twitter is just another way to increase your online presence and really helps in driving traffic to your site (where your promotional content is). The great thing about this is you don't have to rely on search engines and SEO. You can use it and see results immediately. The importance of having a lot of followers is whenever you post on Twitter, it will appear on all your followers' timelines. The more people who see it, the more chance they will either click on your link to buy or they will share it (which means it will show in all their followers' timeline). You can see how powerful this is if people keep sharing and the same link gets exposed to all their followers.

There's a lot more to it but you'll have to wait for my course =)
Hope that helps.

Great thanks yakitori :)

I've never used Twitter but will look into it now

Yeah you definitely should. It's been a pretty good source of traffic and I don't have to depend on search engines

Congratulations!

Thanks Karin!
