How do I get followers? Relatively new, so where is the best place to advertise?
Get yourself an avatar to add a bit of personality. Post in forums on topics that interest you. Comment sincerely on other people's hubs. So those are some of the ways you can make yourself more visible.
Many hubbers will follow you if you follow them, but this does not guarantee that they will read your articles. The methods listed above are probably more solid.
thanks for the advice...where do I get a cool avatar??
Any portrait picture will do. Try Wikimedia Commons. You can also try Google Image Search, then select "advanced image search," and filtering "labeled for reuse." Images need to get cropped to fit, so you will want something with a clear focus.
Follows will come naturally, a profile picture does help though.
Become active in the forums and you should start seeing them trickle in.
I have near 300 followers now, but I have to admit that prior to having around 70 quality hubs I didn't get many followers at all!
Try the following stores;
I just read one of your hubs & wanted to read more & I did, I found the same title on Google with the same wording, but more story.
In a nutshell, participate in the community. And definitely drum up an avatar
You've got great advice already.
My thing, polish your profile, write hubs, be nice, be a good hubber and people will naturally just follow you. I don't think there is a special formula for it.

That would be silly. Why would anyone follow someone that doesn't write what they want to read? I follow someone when I find a hubber that writes hubs I'm interested in, not as a social exercise to raise my...

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...
