One of the most popular questions asked by many business webmasters is how to get more quality Twitter followers, and its curious because it tends to be one of the major concerns of customers who we work with on a daily basis. Although it is true that large companies tend to have more clear how Twitter works.

But for the vast majority of business owners it really doesn't matter if those followers are high quality followers or if their just a bunch of fake profiles, some don't even care if their new followers will bring in more web traffic, sales and engagement; All that the majority of businesses want is to have more followers than the competition and sell more... 
 
Sometimes we ourselves don't quite understand this phenomenon or how a strategy like that can help at all any business but that's just how social media is working with business owners. 
 
Your main objective, if your looking to grow your Twitter followers with quality followers, should be not to become obsessed with the quantity but instead the quality of your followers, because what we all want is our followers to have interest in what we do and offer. 
 
Otherwise, and if you just want quantity, you will be losing the opportunity to engage with real fans who won't retweet none of your tweets, won't share any of your content and will never engage in a conversation with you.   
 
I know of some Twitter users that have found success in posting tweets of their daily life in a way that their followers can get to know them better, but this is much harder than simply sharing a great image on Instagram and unless you’re a celebrity, the chances are that only people who know you in real life would be interested in following your daily personal tweets. 

On this post we’ve put together an indepth guide to help you grow your Twitter followers like never before including quality.

Optimize your profile 

A Twitter profile optimization is key to get quality followers and your avatar image is the perfect opportunity to show some more personality. Remember that your profile picture is the first thing that a potential follower is going to see and it should be of good quality. A picture of a real person is always going to get more engagement that a cartoon picture. 
 
In the case of that you own a business Twitter account, put the company logo. There's nothing wrong with that! 
 
And don't forget about your header image. My best tip is that you make use of a good header picture. Remember to use a high quality photo for this section as well and if you put text in this image, be sure that you can view it correctly by visiting your Twitter profile from a mobile device. 
 

Bio

Sometimes its just hard to try to describe yourself, ain't it? We all know that describing ourselves to others is sometimes hard, but that is exactly the purpose of your Twitter bio; to talk about you! It’s also the perfect opportunity to include some keywords of your industry.

However, don’t laden it with key and buzz words. A good Twitter bio still needs to have a personality. It may even act as a conversation starter with potential followers. You have 160 characters so keep it relevant, to the point and attention grabbing! 

Spread your Twitter URL 

Getting your Twitter URL noticed by posting it to your business cards, add it to your email newsletters and include it as part of your email signature. Don't forget to add a 'Follow Us' button to your blog or website, to target your regular clientele and audience as well.

Find more followers using strategy

Next we're going to go through some more advanced strategies that if well applied can help you attract even more quality Twitter followers to your profile. Strategies that will never fall because they are an essential part of this micro social platform.
 
 

Tweet good content consistently; not excessively

Tweeting about everything you read on the internet may not be so helpful after all but it is crucial that you tweet consistently to engage your followers and new followers because no one will want to follow someone who last tweeted 2 months ago.

A good habit would be about 3-5 tweets per day spaced out in between a few hours each. This will remind your followers who you are and what you represent. Don’t be a spammer tweeting every minute because you will clog up your follower’s newsfeeds—which will get you one ticket to an “Unfollow.”

TIP: Remember that you shouldn't tweet for the sake of tweeting. Try attaching an opinion or a genuine question with each one of your tweets to get your followers engaged. The more they engage, the more viral your tweet will go—which leads to more exposure and more quality Twitter followers. If you just tweet an article title or a bland statement, it seems like you don’t care and your followers won’t care either.

Retweet

Retweeting on Twitter is like sharing on "Facebook", it shows others that you care about what they say and want to give their brand extra exposure to your followers. When you retweet other people’s tweets, they will most likely follow you as a sign of appreciation and return a retweet at a later date. Retweets are the easiest way to get in front of tons of new followers/customers.

Use Hashtags

Hashtags were born in Twitter and they provide a great way to connect with twitter users beyond just your Followers. Hashtags are a great way to spread your tweets to various topics and for those who still don’t know what a hashtag is - basically, it’s a word or two behind a # that makes a sort of category in a common discussion subject.

For example, you could set up a hashtag like #myawesomeblog. This creates a place where others on Twitter can dialogue about your blog too. If anyone tweets using your hashtag, it will show up in the feed for that hashtag search. This can generate more interest in your profile, and in the long run you can get more quality Twitter followers. 

Engage, don't auto promote


Whenever you tweet, remember one rule: No one will want to follow a brand that constantly tweets “check out my site, check out my store, check out my brand…” Tweet about things that would make you feel excited if you saw it.

Offer your followers engaging content that they can be excited about. Many brands make the mistake of using Twitter as a promotional megaphone—constantly marketing their brand with the intention of getting more traffic. You would hate that if a brand did that to you, and the same applies to all your existing and potential followers.
