How would you like to get free twitter followers very easily and massively boost your engagement in the process?
It’s not only possible, it’s easy… as you will learn from the reading the rest of this article.
If you have been struggling with this for a while or don’t even know the importance of Twitter, you are not alone. I have been there too. My name is John and I can help you. I have spent years learning and doing a lot of Internet marketing. Now you can benefit from all I have learned and done.
One time I tried internet marketing with good success and built a list of over 500 people. I mostly worked with Twitter and I discovered lots of things, some of which I will share with you here.
Anyone Can Get Free Twitter Followers!
This is very true and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s not rocket science getting twitter followers, even for free, and using Twitter to get great results.
In fact, I never thought that Twitter could be powerful but it is one of the few marketing methods that worked for me. It is especially powerful if you are in a passionate niche.
And it doesn’t matter whether you have a lot of experience or not, you or anyone else can still get a lot from Twitter, thanks to what you will learn from reading this article.
So let’s get started!
Here are my “Top Twitter Tips.”
1.) Use A Profile Image and Cover Image
I am sure you have heard the popular saying that first impression matters, right? Well that’s very true here as well. That’s why it’s good to create the right first impression with your profile image and cover image.
It’s a good idea to always appear professional, as much as you can. Having no profile image projects a bad image. And it starts with posting a good professional profile picture.
Try to use the same one on all of your social media accounts so people can find and identify with you.
If you are using twitter for a business, posting a logo is highly recommended. Use the same logo on all your business social media accounts so your fans can easily find you. Using different logos or pictures, especially pictures that look very different from each other, can be confusing to your potential followers.
Here is my Twitter profile picture. Notice it is the same one I use here on Kingged. This way people can easily find and identify with me.
Your cover image is precious real estate. It takes up a large amount of the space on your profile. So, go to Fivver.com and have a professional cover created.
And no, not all image and graphic creators on Fiverr are low quality. You can get a pretty decent cover created for $5.
Add the URL to your blog or website and a small text describing your business to the cover.
Here is an example with my cover image:
2.) Fill Out The Full Description In Your Profile
Fully fill out your profile description with your interests in hashtags. This makes it easier for people to find you on Twitter and they will know you are someone worth following.
Using myself as an example again, this is my profile description. Notice how I add the hashtags into the description text.
Add your website too! You’ll be surprised people will visit it!
And not only will they visit, they will actually engage with you because of the good impression you have created.
3.) Use The Best Hashtags In Your Tweets
You may say, “duh” I already know that but just bear with me. Things change quickly and what worked well in the past with Hashtags might no longer work today.
I will show you new ways to use these hashtags that will…
First you have to figure out the top hashtags for your niche.
You can do this manually but it will take too much time and effort. Instead, we are going to use a tool called Hashtagify.Me
In the upper right hand corner type your main niche keyword in the “Search #tag” box. In the example I typed in “lose weight”
As you can see below, I now have many relevant hashtags to work with.
It’s also very easy to use and can get you a lot of relevant hashtags for your needs, every single time.
4.) Retweet Your Tweets With Your Hashtags
Type your hashtags in the the Twitter Search in the upper right hand side. In the example below I typed “#weightloss.”
Now go through the tweets in the search results and start liking and retweeting the tweets that you think your audience will enjoy.
As you like and retweet these tweets, the authors will notice that you liked and shared their tweets and they will be likely to follow you. This is one way to get free Twitter followers.
Add the twitter app to your phone and when you are free during the day, just retweet some relevant tweets. I guarantee you will get extra Twitter followers
5.) Create Twitter Lists Based On Your Hashtags
In Twitter click on your profile picture on the right hand side. Once you do this click “Lists.”
On the right hand side, click “create a list”
Type a hashtag in the “List name” box. You can click public or private. Many people feel honored to be added to a list and will follow you.
For this purpose I prefer to keep the list private. You don’t have to.
Create lists for all of your main hashtags
Now go to your “notifications” tab. Click on the profile of people that liked or retweeted your tweets.
Add these people to the appropriate list.
To do this visit their profile page and click the three little dots next to the “follow button.” Then click “add or remove from lists.”
Then just click the appropriate list for the hashtag.
Now that you have the followers in a list, copy 2 or 3 every time you tweet with that hashtag.
Your will get more exposure and interactions which will in turn get you more Twitter followers for free.
6.) Tweet Lots Of Quotes
Quotes are some of the most popular tweets and will get you tons of engagement. Most people post encouraging posts and these will ALWAYS work.
However I suggest searching for quotes on the hashtags you found in your niche.
For example I searched for “Classic Car Quotes”. I found this one that would be perfect for people that are really into cars.
“I’ve always been asked, ‘What is my favorite Car?’ and I’ve
always Said ‘The next one.'” -Carroll Shelby
Now, just tweeting this post will get your engagement but if you create an image for the quote it you will get even more.
There is a website that makes it easy to create images with posts. They provide the images, you just type in the quote and hit a button.
The website is called Pablo by Buffer.
Here is an example of one I made:
I then post this in Twitter. I type the tweet, add the picture and add the hashtags #Copywriting #Quotes…
Now tell me – won’t you prefer seeing quotes in an image like this, than just plain text? Of course you would. That’s the same with most people out there.
7.) Pin Your Top Tweet
If you want extra exposure to a tweet, pin it to the top of your Twitter page. This is great tactic for a squeeze page or an article you want to promote.
It helps you get a lot more exposure than if dropped down to the bottom with the other tweets.
To do this, click the down arrow on the upper right hand corner of any tweet. When the menu appears, click “Pin to your profile page.”
8.) Leverage The Power Of JustRetweet and ViralContentBee To Get Free Twitter Followers
The best ways to market on twitter is to do it indirectly in your blog posts. Wouldn’t it be even more powerful if you can easily get other people sharing your blog posts?
There are a couple of websites that allow you to do this. Other bloggers post their best content and then you earn credits every time your share their content.
You use these credits to have others share your articles.
They both have free options allowing you to still get benefits without paying anything. You can get started with their free options and see how it goes from there on.
9.) Try Getting Paid To Tweet
This tip is powerful once you build a large following. You are able to start earning just from the privilege of having good number of followers. And it’s not even that hard to start getting paid just to tweet.
There is a site called SponsoredTweets that can help you with this.
They will pay you for tweeting about relevant products in your niche. Many famous people with large twitter followings “secretly” use this site to earn extra and easy income.
Of course they make money when they pay you to do this. But since the products you are tweeting about are relevant and might be of interest to your followers, it can be a win win for you and your followers.
You may need a larger following though as they pay per click.
Apart from using a site like SponsoredTweets, you can sell this directly to others who may be interested.
For example, once you have a following of about 10,000 or more you always can create a gig on Fiverr and offer to tweet to your following. It is small but very “easy” money.
Be creative with “add-ons” to earn extra income.
10.) Automatically “Recycle” Your Best Evergreen Content
You can recycle your best evergreen content manually but why waste so much time doing this when you can do this automatically using a special service?
I use a paid service called StatusBrew. They have a “post recycler” for paid members.
You can recycle your top evergreen posts.
You can add 100s of tweets and some of them will be recycled each day. If you have over 100 it won’t appear like you are posting the same thing over again.
This service is great for the quotes that I mentioned earlier.
With this awesome service you can also throw in articles from your blog and tweets to your lead pages and even affiliate links.
When you log in, click the Twitter profile you want to use. Once you are logged in, click “Publish” at the top and then “Post Recycler” at the left.
11.) Follow Targeted People Each Day
Another great feature about the aforementioned StatusBrew is that you can easily laser target twitter followers. It is known that when you follow someone, they are very likely to follow you back.
It’s also the natural law of reciprocity as excellently explained by Sunday in this discussion post right here on Kingged.
According to Sunday and others who commented on the discussion, “this law of reciprocity correlates with the universal laws of sowing and reaping or of the law of Karma”. And it works with every social media platform, not only Twitter.
No doubts, you get more twitter followers when you also follow others.
I will show you how to use StatusBrew filters to follow only the best people with the most likelihood of following your back.
♦ To start off, click “Audience” and on the right you want to select “Advanced.” This will allow you to filter your followers.
♦ I suggest for the number of followers to select at least 500.
♦ As for tweets per day, I set to at least 5.
♦ Followers to Follow ratio, I set to 80 or 90 at the highest. (This assures you that they are likely to follow back)
♦ For Last tweeted I select at least 7 days ago. Then I select that they must have a profile image.
With these filter you will only target real, active twitter followers who are likely to follow you back!
For the best results, try to follow around 200 new people each day. Also be sure to unfollow people that aren’t following you back.
I highly recommend you check out StatusBrew.
Apart from all the amazing features, it also has a filter to exclude people you recently followed. I usually give people at least 3 days to follow back.
12.) Send A Welcome Video In A Welcome Tweet
Many Twitter Apps like StatusBrew allow you to send a “welcome tweet” to new followers. I haven’t tried this technique yet but have seen others use it successfully.
You want to create a short YouTube video welcoming your new followers. Tell them that you are happy they followed you etc…
Whatever you want…
I also suggest having a link under the video to an interesting article that also indirectly promotes you leadpage. I am going to try to do this technique and refer people to this article.

Some Final Thoughts
It will take some hard work on your part to become a Twitter Superstar. I experimented with software that promised to automate my tweets so I didn’t have to do any work.
But did it work as promised? The answer is:
I almost got my account banned as a result!
You certainly don’t want that to happen to you. It is not worth trying to spam twitter.
More so, you won’t get long lasting results by trying to spam. It can get you results for a short time but very likely to get you eventually banned.
Simply follow the tips I have shared in this article and you are on your way to achieving great results with Twitter.
And most importantly, take consistent action each day. It’s not a day’s action that leads to success. It’s the different actions you take that eventually culminate into success.
When you do the daily actions, eventually you are going to see results and your twitter account will be one of your greatest assets to your blog and business.
