How Often To Tweet

Find Out

Let’s cut to the chase. Here’s the answer.

It depends.

It depends on your audience and what they expect from you. It also depends on how large a following you have.

If you’re new to Twitter and you have fewer than 200 followers,

 

I would say tweeting 3 or 4 times a day is plenty. At this point you’re still discovering who your followers are and if they’re even the type of followers you want. After a couple of weeks, go to your analytics, which you can find at twitter.com/analytics, and take a look at which of your tweets were best received by your followers.  This is golden information. As long as these are the types of followers you want, you now know what kind of information they like best. So continue giving them that kind of information.

If you have closer to 1,000 followers,

tweet between 6 to 8 times a day. If you’re thinking, “Liz, are ya nuts? What am I going to say that many times a day?”

First of all, yes, I might be nuts, but not about this. Don’t forget that the  information you have in your head is incredibly interesting and important to your potential customers. You probably take it for granted – all those ins and outs, dos and don’ts. Share a few of those tips every day. Add on a retweet from a valuable follower or two and maybe an article from a magazine that would be interesting to your potential customers. Add in even one Twitter conversation and you can see that you’re well over the minimum tweets I’ve outlined above.

Should You Recycle Your Tweets?

 

Once you’ve gotten a following upwards of 3,000 or so, tweet as much as you like. And (get ready to gasp) you can even tweet something tomorrow that you tweeted last week. That’s right. Some information is evergreen. In other words, if you are tweeting out tips, they’re still as valid next month as they were last month. Take into consideration that the lifespan of a tweet is often no more than a few minutes, you can see that many of your followers may have missed seeing it.

Caution: DO NOT SEND OUT THE SAME TWEET A ZILLION TIMES IN A ROW. Recycling is ok, but space them out Click To Tweet

Avoid even two times in a row. Recycling your tweets is ok, but space them out with other tweets in between. This is SUPER important.

Stretch your tweets out over the course of the day and then see what days and what times you’re getting the best response. After that, make a point to be on Twitter at the same time as when the majority of your followers are. This will give you the most opportunity to talk, (ok, tweet) to someone live. This is where the real magic is in Twitter. This is where you make new friends and find leads.

Remember that tweeting is part art and part science. (Really it’s mostly fun.) So I’d like to add my disclaimer that your mileage may vary. The advice I outlined above works extremely well with my customers and this is part of the formula to getting them an incredible increase in the number of real followers in the shortest amount of time.

Growing Your Twitter Following

 

There are so many posts about how to grow your Twitter following (and I have to stop right here and say I’m always surprised at how often the people that created the post have very few followers themselves) and it always sounds so complicated. But it’s really easy. You don’t even have to be especially outgoing. I’m an introvert – make that a super-introvert, and if I can do it so can you!

 

Twitter Growth Tip #1

 

Before you start growing your Twitter account, make sure these three things are up to par:

  1. Your profile picture
  2. Your photo cover
  3. Your bio

Put yourself in the shoes of a potential follower. Would you follow someone that didn’t have a profile photo or a bio and little to no followers or tweets?

Do you need help with getting those three things right? You can comment below or email me or tweet me at @AskForLiz.

 

Twitter Growth Tip #2

 

Follow others. A bunch of others. A ton of others. There are millions of people on social media all the time. If you sit around like a wallflower, it’s unlikely that you’ll be noticed by many people. Reach out to others by following them. Which leads us to …

 

How to find the right people to follow?

 

This is going to sound a little off, but I’m going to tell you anyway. When you’re first starting out don’t be as picky as you will be later. You may (actually, you should) have a specific target audience in mind, but the truth is, there’s just something about us humans that don’t like to be the first to like. Or the first to comment. Or the first to follow an account with 5 followers. You’ll notice that some of the people who you followed will follow you back. Engage with them and see if they are people you’d want to spend time with. If not, you can always hit that Unfollow button.

 

The important take-away here is get started with reaching out.

 

A good way to start is to find someone you’d like to emulate and start following the people that follow them. Why? You already have something in common – you like the same kind of things the person you’re following posts.

 

After that, find a hashtag that interests you and follow it for a while. From the group that you find using this hashtag, pick the ones you like and follow them.

The secret behind growing your Twitter account? It’s crazy simple. Talk to other people. #TwitterTips Click To Tweet

Twitter Growth Tip #3

 

Once you’ve looked at other accounts and what they tweet, and followed hashtags that look interesting, start jumping into conversations. If you’re nervous you’ll do that wrong thing, start out slow by hitting that little heart on the tweets that you like. You’ll probably get a few people responding to you just from that one small action. Once they do, hit reply and respond back to them.

 

If you’re bolder and are ready to jump in with both feet, then absolutely become part of the conversation! Find something that you find interesting or tickles your funny bone or whatever and say something to the person that tweeted. If you enjoyed the conversation, follow all the people that took part in it. And then make a habit of engaging with them in the future.

 

If you’re in a hurry to find a group of people that you can engage with, try joining a Twitter Chat. You might want to consider not engaging the first few times you follow along, but at some point, you’ll start to participate and you’ll find this is one of the fastest ways to grow your account and have a good time, too.

 

If you’re interested in joining some Twitter Chats, take a peek at the Twitter Chat calendar I made that you can embed in your own google calendar here. This is by no means an exhaustive list (I’m sure there are thousands of #chats you could join) but it’s a starting point.

 

There’s a lot more to Twitter than the brief outline I’ve shared here, but this is enough to get you started. If you’d like to know more about Twitter Chats, let me know in the comments below.

 

Do you have specific questions or areas you’d be interested in learning more about? I’m happy to answer your questions in the comments below or on Twitter.

 

Frankly, there are so many things I could talk to you about Twitter that I don’t know where to start! So DO ask me and I’m happy to share what I know.
