Like millions of people, I have had a twitter account for many years, mainly using to see what celebrities are up to and to track what everyone is talking about in the world. More recently, however, I have been using it to create an online presence for my own brand. I have built my own website about being a university student, and I have also shared articles that I have written for another website, on the topics of psychology and mental health. For this, I created a new account and came up against the new problem of having 0 followers. So, if you read on, you can pick up a few tips on how to get noticed on Twitter…
How To Get Noticed On Twitter: Some Ideas
I looked online for advice on how to gain followers. I would recommend looking for such advice if you are in the same situation as I was. However, the advice can be different depending on your brand. Since I started this process, I think that it would be easier if I had a product to sell. The product I am trying to promote is myself; my own thoughts about university, psychology and mental health. The challenge was that not only do I need Twitter users to see my profile and twitter feed. I also need them to click on any links I provide.
After reading through different pieces of advice, I started following influential Twitter users in the field. I would recommend following a variety of different Twitter accounts. This then generates a lot of potential interactions on your twitter feed. From there, you can start to make connections and find out more information about your subject area on twitter – perhaps what works and what doesn’t.
I didn’t have a website for a couple of months, but when I started to discuss it, I found that I gained followers. Therefore, I think tracking what you post and how it affects the amount of followers you have can help for future tweeting.
I am still in the infancy of my new twitter account, but I am enjoying the challenge. Using Instagram is next on my list, but I have only ever used it to look at the photos celebrities post (there’s a theme to my past social media usage!). I find that more of a challenge with how I will use it – isn’t it just for photos? I will find out… Do you have any tips for how to get noticed on Twitter? Why not share them?
