My blogging and social media goals are just beginning! Back in October I shared my first Twitter goals with you on my Twitter Guide for Newbies. I realized that with a little effort I could easily gain 500 followers per month, and so could you!
By using with my tips in that post I have well exceeded my expectations!
Here are my updated analytics:
During October I gained 746 new followers! I am super excited to have all you following me.
November was a little busy for me. So I was only able to gain 686 new followers. But I am very excited to gain all of my new tweeps!
So what are my new Twitter Goals?
- Gain 1,000 followers per month
- Increase Profile Visits to 10,000
- Tweet a minimum of 25 per day
I know these goals are steep, but I do think they are do able for me. One thing I’ve changed is I am now following more people, and using Unfollowers to remove anyone who doesn’t follow back. After 5 days if a user doesn’t follow back, I will unfollow them so I can follow others.
I know a lot of people hate this method, but I do search for people who have same interests as me. My favorite hashtag I search is #momlife. For all my favorite hashtags visit Ultimate Hashtag List.
Keep in mind Twitter has restrictions after you follow 2,000 users. Generally they will allow you to follow 10% more than who follows you, but some may have other restrictions or other percentages.
2,000 followers means you can follow 2,200
3,000 followers means you can follow 3,300[clickToTweet tweet=”What are your #Twitter Goals? #socialmedia ” quote=”What are your Twitter Goals?”]
Why does following more users work?
It gets you noticed and that will lead to users seeing you, and potentially following you. I know not everyone likes this tactic, but it works!
My Twitter Suggestions:
- Update your profile (IBA has a great post here)
- Get Rid of Eggheads! (I will not follow a user without a profile image)
- Make your own Twitter Goals
So to help keep me accountable I am going to start sharing with you every month what worked, and if I was able to reach my goals!
