GIVE YOUR BLOG A FOLLOW BUTTON FOR READERS TO USE
2. What’s the simplest way to spur folks to become your Twitter followers? Make it easy for them to do so. Incorporating a follow button or social media widget into your blog lets any reader click once and become your follower. They don’t have to even take the nearly effortless step of finding your Twitter page. Moreover, clicking on your follow button won’t move them away from the all-important blog of yours they’re reading. A follow button removes any impediment to becoming a follower.
3. Include tweetable quotes. You can add to both your Twitter followers and your blog readers by including tweetable quotes in your blogs. Adding “click to tweet” boxes in your blog copy will send that particular passage out as a tweet, heightening your blog traffic and increasing your followers.
4. Request followers retweet. Each time your tweets are retweeted, you can gain more followers. So ask for them! Requesting your followers retweet with a “Please Retweet” in front of your tweet can grow your retweets by four times. For best results, just ask occasionally.
Bonus: Time your Tweets. Like many other things, building Twitter followers is often a matter of good timing. Streamline your efforts through use of Tweet-scheduling social media tools, helping ensure tweets are timed consistently.
