Twitter is one of the most powerful social marketing tools available today. If you have a business, either online or offline, having a Twitter account is a must.
The problem is that unless you are a celebrity who has millions of people just waiting to hear about their next bathroom break, you need to get followers to listen to you. There are tons of tools out there that will get you followers, and most of them come at a cost. I have come across three tools that are totally free and will help you get followers.
- First, and probably the most important step, is to use Google Alerts to set up feeds to send out from your Twitter account that people will want to read. Choose your keywords and phrases carefully because the more popular the articles that Google Alerts finds for you, the more people that will like what you have to say and want to follow you.
- The next step is go out to Twitter Feed and tie the alerts that you just created to your Twitter account. You can set up lots of different feeds and have them posted at different intervals during the day.
- Then use Social Oomph to welcome all of your new followers with a special welcome message. You can also use it to schedule special messages throughout the day.
