How Can I Get More Twitter Followers That Like To Read?
How Can I Get More Twitter Followers That Like To Read? Looking to broaden my readership for my Hubs? Are there article sharing groups on Twitter?
I would do a simple search on twitter for people with similar interests and then follow them. If they are interested they will follow you back.
I agree with Phyllis, tweet your hub links and don't discount Pinterest, if you don't already have a presence on the site. It if one of my best sources for traffic, especially those who are interested in the same subjects as myself.
Yes, Pinterest is really good for getting traffic. People there love to share (Pin) links.
Thanks! I have been using Pinterest for a few years. It is good at driving traffic to my Hubs, especially travel Hubs with nice pictures.
You are right about Pinterest, John. I delayed using it for a long time because I did not know enough about it. Finally gave it a try. A lot of my hubs are pinned by others, so it really helps.
There seem to be forums for everything nowadays. Usually you can't self-promote (but can probably add a signature to posts), but you may find like minded people who like to discuss "real" books and online reading material. Don't forget to add as many relevant "bookish" hash tags to your tweets or posts when you promote on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+. Also search for as many book or reader related hash tags, and follow accounts which come up in the search.
Thanks Eugene. I am aware of those outlets. I am wondering more specifically about getting a following on Twitter that reads. Re forum outlets, I miss the days when there was the USENET. That was a great place to drop comments with a casual link,
The luck I have had with Twitter is somewhat limited. However, I made a discovery. One day I focused on two interests and followed as many as I could with those. I paid attention to businesses and groups mostly. Usually the only re-tweats I would get would be very few who were friends. Finally, I wrote a Hub in one of those interest. I was amazed at how may re-tweats I received that day. My email box was full. It was almost like Christmas day.
Yes the problem with Twitter is that tweets form part of an ever flowing stream, so even if you have lots of followers, they may follow lots of people also. Unless they specifically check a profile, they mightn't even notice a tweet in the feed.
I agree. Social Media for article exposure has benefits & limitations. Frankly, I usually don't tweet (Noticed I misspelled it above :-). Why? I really haven't read & learned its structure for its purpose. EX: I don't understand hashtags.
Thanks Tim. Sounds like your hard work at Twitter eventually paid off.

Do you prefer using Pinterest or Twitter to promote your hubs?Which do you like to use? Do you use both? Which gets you more visitors?

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion; don't follow to be followed. Follow because you genuinely are interested in the...
