I'm with Phyllis on the Sundae and throw in a box of chocolate to boot...lol
Seriously, the first thing to do is write engaging hubs that people can relate to and will find interesting. Participating in the community will also allow people to get to know you and the followers will come.
Reading and commenting on other people's hubs is also recommended because hubbers will check you out. Your comments must be engaging so that hubbers want to get to know more about you. I never click on profiles with comments like "great hub", or similar comments.
Plus, you need to publish more. If hubbers don't have hubs to read why would they follow you? No offense, but three hubs in two years doesn't leave room for that. I usually don't follow people who don't seem interested in publishing hubs.I follow hubbers whose hubs I want to read, if there are no hubs you wont have genuine fans. Build your fan base by publishing at least one hub per month, give them something to follow you for.
