How Do I Get More Followers?
So, you've written a great article and you push the submit button. Some thoughts cross your mind. Will anyone look at my article? Will they find my article interesting? Will this article bring in more followers?
You check the status page every couple hours at first to see how many people have viewed your article. Sometimes it's a lot, but usually it is a fairly small number. What happened? How can I get more viewers?
One answer is to get more followers. I know what your saying, the only way I can get more followers is by getting them to read my article in the first place. This article will teach you how to get people to read your articles and become followers.
Gain Followers With Twitter
Instantly connect to what's most important to you. Follow your friends, experts, favorite celebrities, and breaking news.
Follow Others On Social Media Sites
One of the quickest, easiest ways to get followers is by signing up to Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
There are millions of people on these sites looking for information that you can give them (at least some of them).
Gain Followers With Facebook
Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, post links and videos, and learn more about the people
Find Others With Similar Interests
Find others that you find interesting on each of these social media sites and follow them. Start "sharing" to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest each time you submit an article. It's easy to do! Look below or off to the side of the article. You will see small buttons that are symbols for Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
Of course, you will need to sign up for a free account to each of these social media sites before you can share on them.
Once you are a member of each of the social media sites, just click on their button to share your article to them. Since your article will be available for so many others to see on these sites, you will gain more exposure.
Gain Followers With Pinterest
A content sharing service that allows members to "pin" images, videos and other objects to their pinboard. Also includes standard social networking features.
Find Others Who Have Questions That You Have The Answer To
Think about what your article is about. Is it about allergies? Find allergy groups in the social media sites and start answering questions or giving some helpful information that you may have. Remember, you don't want to be overbearing and start posting tons of links back to your articles.
If someone asks a question and you have the answer in your article, you could write a brief answer and then put a link afterwards to your article and let them know that you wrote an article about the subject and that the article has a lot more information about the subject if they would like to read it. Remember, don't be pushy, because you could end up getting yourself banned from groups or sites.
Peak Hours From Coast to Coast
Publish Your Articles During Peak Hours
The best time to publish and share your articles to social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest are during the peak hours. Peak hours are the hours when the social media sites see the most traffic. Peak hours are 9am, Noon, 3pm and 6pm. If you are in the United States, plan on publishing and sharing your articles between the hours of 9am and 6pm.
If you want the most people to see your article, share it during those hours. You may get more followers just because you push the publish button during a certain hour!
Find People With A Lot Of Followers
Look through Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Find people or groups that you find interesting. Now look at how many followers they have. If they have a lot of followers, you will also want to become a follower of theirs.
Once you become a follower, then you can write them a note, answer a question for them or add your input to the dialogue. Your name will pop up in their posts and everyone who follows them, will also see your name and comment.
This is a great way to get your name out there. If someone finds your comment interesting, they may click on your name to find out more about you.
If you have been sharing your articles to social media sites, they will see your articles. If they find your articles interesting, they may become a new follower!
