Getting More Twitter Followers

Ever since Twitter has earned its spot in the social media spotlight, much of the hype seems to revolve around getting more twitter followers and with good reason. As with many other social media websites, the more followers you have - the more potential traffic you can gain through Twitter. Tweeting on Twitter can be especially lucrative because you can reach tens of millions of twitter users with your tweets. Whether its an advertisement, an affiliate link, your website, or even if your trying to promote your blog; Twitter is a powerful way to do it. In fact most of the viral content that streams through websites like Reddit and Youtube becomes viral through tweets on Twitter.

With that being said, its understood that the more followers you have on Twitter - the more money you can make on Twitter because you have a larger audience that follows you. But out of the many Twitter users that continue to obsess about getting more followers on Twitter. A large portion of those twitter users resort to the "idea" that you could "buy twitter followers". Although this may be an option, it isn't necessary and it isn't as effective as Twitter software such as Tweet Adder.

When you buy followers on twitter you will find that your results will not be as targeted, your audience will not be a highly targeted audience that is directly relevant to your niche. That means that your conversions won't be so impressive either. However, there is Twitter software that does a great job of finding highly relevant followers on Twitter. In fact, you can find such relevant people to follow you by using an advanced Twitter search tool within Tweet Adder that will find people that are tweeting about the exact keyword or search phrase that you find relevant to your niche. This Twitter search tool can even find followers based on demographic area and even through keywords that you can search for in the biography. The result is a huge list of highly targeted Twitter users that are actively participating in discussions relating to your niche.

I've tried to buy twitter followers in the past, and the results were not what I was hoping for. With that being said, I soon discovered the Tweet Adder software that proved to be a great investment that was very worth while. Overall, my Twitter conversions increased and most of the leads that I was generating were highly relevant to the niches that I was catering to.

Saving Time On Twitter

Lets say that you decided to buy Twitter followers anyway.  Sure you may get more followers that are not highly targeted, but you still are not actively participating on Twitter.  Twitter is a social community and in order to thrive on Twitter, you need to stay active, stay social and connect with people.  Getting followers is great, but if you aren't building a brand or a relationship with the people that are following you, you may find it harder to succeed.  Which is another reason why Twitter software is a better way to make money on Twitter.

Tweet Adder can automate an unlimited amount of Twitter accounts so that you can save time on Twitter.  When your saving time on Twitter it means that you have time to work on other promotional methods.  Tweet Adder will automate your accounts by following people for you, following people back automatically, automating direct messages and automatically unfollowing people that don't follow you back on Twitter.  Furthermore, Tweet Adder allows you to use several tools that increase exposure on Twitter, and you can even automate your tweets so that you don't have to spend time tweeting messages and links on a repetitive basis.  I first heard about the Twitter software when I was getting advice from a friend on Twitter and he has over 50,000 followers.  With over 50,000 followers on Twitter, I figured he knew what he was talking about and boy was he right!

      I've heard good things about Tweet Adder, My Friend showed me his twitter accounts and they all have over 10,000 followers. He has 3 accounts and is constantly getting more followers on twitter.

      Great advice, I think you may be right. When you buy followers, your twitter followers tend to be less targeted and less relevant.
