How Do You See New Followers On A Profile In Twitter
You want people to listen to you. The most effective method to persuade someone to follow you is to first follow them. Alternatively, retweet or like anything they've tweeted. Alternatively, you may do all three. I've mentioned it before on the Roo blog, but let me say it again: sometimes the greatest way to get others to think you're fascinating is to find them intriguing first. Following, retweeting, and favoriting tweets are all methods to demonstrate your interest.
But it is just the first step. People don't take their time choosing who to follow back. There is a substantial amount of study in both conventional and internet marketing concerning the very narrow window of opportunity you have to capture someone's attention.
Think quickly and hard.
Consider how other Twitter users will see your profile. Consider what quick decisions they will make. Is your Twitter bio anything like “professional, will offer a lot of fascinating material and engagement?” Or does it say “hurriedly put together, and why do I have to know where this person is shopping?”
A user will most likely examine your profile and decide whether or not to follow you in one of two ways. The first step is to examine their own list of followers. “Oh, who retweeted me?” says the second.
It may be difficult to keep up with Twitter notifications about a new follower, so many just let new followers accumulate. Every now and again, a user will look at his or her follower list to check who is following. Twitter organizes followers based on the date they started following you. The most recent are listed first. Twitter allows you to quickly follow people back or even ignore them.
Three factors must be considered here:
Your profile pictures
The first and most apparent rule is to avoid using the default Twitter “egg.” Most Twitter users subconsciously short-circuit accounts with an egg picture as spam accounts. Get a nice professional picture if your account reflects you as a person (rather than a Twitter account representing your business). On your face, crop. Smile. Tie your tie. Or a coat. Alternatively, both. Check that your eyes are visible. People interpret emotional content by looking at their eyes and lips. It's all about getting the emotional content correct when it comes to social success.
If you own a business, you should have a logo. Keep in mind that your logo will be reduced in size. If your logo is ornate, try cropping it and utilizing the most aesthetically attractive part of it. In the absence of such, is there a visually appealing product picture you can use?
Your name is
You'd be shocked how many people get their names wrong. Use your complete name wherever possible. Given and given names with only one first name (“Bob”), you seem generic, rushed, and possibly spammy. Obviously, if it's your business's Twitter, use the name of your firm. Is your business incorporated? Include the word “Inc.” You spent a lot of money for that Inc., so wear it with pride.
A third reason individuals use Twitter is to offer a service to other Twitter users. For example, your account may curate news about your business or a celebrity. Perhaps it promotes similar activities such as indie music concerts. Again, make sure your name tells prospective followers what you do right away. Avoid using unusual letter/number combinations. People will undoubtedly think you're a spam account if it seems as though you simply entered some random keyboard characters.
You have 160 characters to describe yourself or your business. Make use of them. A one-sentence bio that says nothing entices people to follow you. It suggests a rushed and spammy profile.
A well-written, short bio may be all that is required to get someone to follow you. With your picture and a solid bio, you may instantly convey the message that you are a person worth following, or you most likely offer the kind of material and interaction that the user seeks.
Take it for a spin.
Visit a profile you follow, especially one that reflects the demographic you want to follow you. Find a travel agent profile that you follow if you want to attract travel agents. Don't run your profile by your adolescent son's followers.
So, after you've discovered a suitable representative, click the Followers link on that profile. Look for your profile in the list of followers for that individual. Consider if your picture, name, and bio stand out. Is there anything you can do to make it more noticeable? Consider the possibility that individuals would visit specific opinion leaders on Twitter and “loot” their list of followers. Can you persuade them?
Do you want certain key words in your bio to stand out? HTML elements such as B> and I> are not permitted, however a hashtag (#) may be used before a word. Twitter makes this clickable, so it's bold and blue and sticks out more. Use this sparingly (hashtag just 1-3 essential words), but only when necessary.
It's time to take a closer look at your Profile Summary.
If someone clicks on your name, either because they want to see who has followed them or who has retweeted something, Twitter displays a Profile Summary. Your profile picture, name, and bio are shown in the Profile Summary. This has already been addressed. Furthermore, the profile summary includes information that may need to be refined:
Fill in the blanks with your city/state, city/province, or city/province/country. Not everyone understands where Winnipeg, Manitoba is in the globe, eh? Fill in anything like “Earth” or “the Nut House” if you want to be cheeky. Simply provide useful information that saves the user from having to search for it, especially if you're aiming for local followers who may become local customers.
Put it in. It is clickable on Twitter. Bring a visitor to your website. Of course, make sure that additional information about you may be accessed on your website. Don't send it to a WordPress blog that hasn't been updated in two years.
Twitter will provide a list of the accounts you both follow. More is reassuring. It indicates that others have done their homework and are following you. If you were just looking to create trouble for other users or if you were dead wood, they would have dropped and banned you by now. If you want to follow a really interesting person, it may be worth your effort to try to persuade some of his/her followers to follow you first.
Tweets, Followers, and Following
Do you have a sufficient number of tweets under your belt? Are your follower-to-follower ratios appropriate? If you follow 800 individuals and only 2 of them follow you back, you seem spammy. If you're followed by 800 people and only follow back two, you don't seem to be a user who will ever interact with others.
The Most Recent Three Tweets
Here's another opportunity to squander it. Are your most recent three tweets mindless? Others' retweets? Check-ins on Four Square or Yelp? Are you arguing with someone? Just connections to other websites? Are your most recent three tweets from eight months ago? Or are there significant time gaps between postings (you seem to tweet once every other month)? How do your latest three tweets portray you? Think about it. Make the necessary changes. Quickly.
Go to your complete profile
By this time, there's a high probability that someone will add you or forsake you. However, many people may still click through to see your whole profile. Humans may be an odd bunch. This is where you'll let it all hang out.
The first thing to think about is your design (choose Edit Profile | Design). Choose a backdrop picture that is unique to you. You may add text to a customized background picture to provide visitors with more information about you, your business, or your goods. It is preferable to generate a fixed width centered picture rather than tiling the image. Tiling is very unpleasant on the eyes.
Twitter takes up the whole screen for its own site content. The content will block the middle of your backdrop picture. However, the “sidebars” may be utilized to provide extra information, product pictures, and so on. You have at least 66 pixels per side bar. This website provides some surprisingly excellent step-by-step instructions for preparing a backdrop picture and determining the best size.
Twitter just introduced a header profile picture. It's comparable to the cover picture on Facebook. With the header picture, you can perform some fascinating things. Twitter superimposes your profile picture, name, ID, bio, location, and website on top. A clever technique is to create a header picture that seems to include the profile image and the overlayed text. The header picture also allows you to visually include some more important or promotional phrases. Some excellent examples may be seen here.
Twitter also displays six thumb nails of the most recent six pictures you've tweeted (by twitch, Instagram, etc.). Don't leave this blank. Get some eye-catching, click-worthy pictures in there. When you click on one of the pictures, Twitter will lead you to a slide show of all the images that have been tweeted.
Many people like looking at your photos. It's an excellent method to promote yourself, your products/services, your skills, or your personality.
