Twitter has proven to be one of the most beneficial social networking sites to use as a blogger looking to bring in some traffic. It is easy to use, easy to build and has a lot to give back to the user.
Unfortunately, the massive amounts traffic we all want Twitter to send us doesn’t just happen in a day. It takes some time to build a powerful Twitter account that thousands of people follow and interact with.
There have been many claims that there is a “best” way to build an account. Believe it or not, there is actually more to a strong Twitter account than just having thousands of followers. Just because you have a lot of people following you does not mean you will start bringing in each and every one of them to your blog.
If you have thousands of random people following you (people who you don’t know or aren’t even in your niche), maybe about 5%, sometimes not even that, will click your links. So by following “dumb” account building methods, you will successfully accomplish nothing.
Now, you can try smarter methods and end up with less followers. But any followers you do end up with will no doubt be interested in what you say. So, what sounds better? Thousands of followers with an extremely low click rate, or a few hundred with a higher click rate?
What’s the Best Way to Build A Twitter Account?
I like to think that I have been slowly, but smartly been building the @Blogussion Twitter account here, and as a result – Twitter is one of the top traffic sources. But, I feel like it can do so much better at a faster rate.
I do have some strategies in mind of what it means to build a really powerful and authoritative account, but I won’t share them in this article. I would much rather hear from you guys and get your opinions on what the best strategies there are out there.
Have a great weekend, and Spring break!
