Here’s Why No One Follows You on Twitter
I joined twitter over 2 years ago. While I’ve never regretted the choice, but I was a skeptic at first.
I was not aware of the real power, real conversations on twitter, and how twitter is going to impact my life and business. I was considering twitter as another social site where people are just babbling about their products and services which I don’t want to here to hear (even you).
But the real truth, real power of twitter I realized in past few months. I really grasped the impact of twitter when we use it properly.
So, I spend some time on researching, observing “Big Tweeples” like @marismith, @problogger and @copyblogger and started to mimic what they are doing, how they are doing it to know their success secrets.
For a few months, I had only 50 followers dropping and increasing, but never cross the boundary of 50, and thought that twitter is all about me more than others. But in past few months, I changed my thinking and started focusing on others, and because of that I got tremendous improve in my twitter visibility.
I started to get my tweets retweeted, mentions, connections, leads, engagement. And at this point I learned something,
“If you care about others and provide value to them then they will care about you and add value in your life.”
So change your thinking and stop raving about yourself, your products and services. Try to share what people want, demand for not what you want to share (simple rule).
