Would you be shocked if I told you today’s guest author has over 299,000 Twitter followers?

Would you be even more shocked if I told you he is only 18 years old?

In addition to all his other credits, 18-year-old  Marc Guberti is an instructor. He teaches young entrepreneurs how to be a success, and he is here today to explain to you how you can be a successful blogger using Twitter, a popular social media site.

In this case study post, you will learn the methods Marc used to get the 299,000 followers, so you can follow his steps to increase your own Twitter following and increase your blog traffic.

How I Get 100,000 Twitter Followers Every Year

By the end of the summer, I’ll have over 300,000 Twitter followers. It’s a big milestone on a social network that has been critical to my success.

Twitter alone has resulted in over 237,212 people visiting my blog. If you are not using Twitter to get more blog traffic, then you are missing out on a valuable platform.

Getting that many visitors each year requires a large, targeted audience. I gain approximately 100,000 targeted followers each year. It’s important to achieve the balance of tending to your current audience while expanding further.

Growing your audience requires a consistent effort carried over a long period of time. You won’t suddenly go from getting a few follower each day to a few hundred followers each day. With patience and effort, you’ll get there.

Here’s how I get 100,000 Twitter followers every year:

#1: Follow The Right People

While I am approaching 300,000 Twitter followers, it is also worth noting that I am following over 200,000 people. I have been following people and getting some of them to follow back.

Anyone who hasn’t followed me for more than two weeks gets unfollowed to preserve my ratio.

However, I am not following random people who have good follow back ratios. I am taking the traditional idea of follow for follow one step further.

Read the next paragraph very carefully.

Follow the followers of successful influencers in your niche (over 100K followers). When following these people, make sure they are active and look like people who would follow you back.

Rinse and repeat over a long period of time and soon enough you’ll have 100,000 Twitter followers. You may end up gaining 100,000 Twitter followers each year.

#2: Post Valuable Content

I define valuable content as content that your targeted audience believes is valuable. The definition of value differs for each person.

I define social media marketing articles as valuable. A blog post about gardening isn’t as valuable to me, regardless of how valuable it would be to a gardener.

You only have to create content that your targeted audience will appreciate. Don’t go too far outside of your niche. I like to analyze my tweets every month to see which tweets are getting the most engagement.

Engagement (i.e. retweets, likes, and interactions) are like votes. Your audience is voting on which type of content they want more of. Your job is to then provide your audience with more of that content.

This decision will result in more engagement for your tweets which results in more reach and therefore more followers.

#3: Post Consistently

I schedule my tweets in advance with HootSuite every day. By posting consistently, your audience will remember you, and you’ll begin to build a loyal audience.

Posting valuable content consistently will give potential followers an additional reason to follow you. Your Twitter profile and tweets are the pitch you present to your potential followers. If a potential follower likes the pitch, that person will click on the follow button.

Conclusion

One of my goals on social media is to get over 10,000 YouTube subscribers. Although this may seem unrelated to Twitter, there is a correlation.

I watched a bunch of YouTube videos about how to get thousands upon thousands of subscribers within a short amount of time. Guess what? The same tactics were covered in almost all of those YouTube videos.

If you have been searching for methods you can use to get thousands of Twitter followers each month let alone over 100,000 new followers each year, some of these methods may look familiar to you. Implement the methods and you’ll start seeing an increase in followers.

Just stay strong throughout the journey, and one day you will reach a point in which you are gaining over 100,000 Twitter followers every year in as little as 15 minutes per day.

    Wonderful! It deserves more than merit. He got it all right. But there is something I don’t i understand about my blog analytics, I know for sure that my most traffic is from Twitter, but in my analytical board, Twitter does not appear at all in the referer list. I only have Facebook, search engines, Google, LinkedIn. Who can tell me why please?

    Issue I have is filtering through “spam” bots that show users with >50k followers, but are nothing more than retweets scheduled by said bot. I will scroll through a page of recent tweets and if content has <50% original, interesting content, I don't follow.

      You can also look for the people who directly engage with this user. You can do that by typing the influencers username into Twitter search. Most of the tweets will be from the influencer but some of those tweets will be from the influencers’ loyal fans. These are people who you want to introduce your content to because they will share it if they like it.

      Hi DT,
      I haven’t seen you in a while. Thanks for commenting on Marc’s Twitter post.
      I had other suggestions for you like typing the name of the influencer into the Twitter search. Then you can see the people the influencer is following. I would follow those people. There are ways to see if they have large followings or not. For example, Commun.It suggests who to follow and shows how many followers the person has. Tweepi has Follow Tools that help with this.

    WOW! 300,000 is amazing!! I was happy I hit 5,000- ha! Guess I have my work cut out for me. I am happy to know that you are seeing traffic driven through this platform though as it is something I am debating whether is worthwhile or not. Looks like I should stick with it. Thanks for the tips!

    I can see following all those people if digital marketing is your niche, but if it isn’t, it may be more valuable to be discerning about who to follow. I also have 4 Twitter accounts because they have different audiences. It’s not as easy to handle but makes more sense for what I do. I schedule some tweets, but like to tweet when there’s something important to tweet about. Too many times a disaster happens and you see tweets and Facebook posts that show you are not present and engaged in what’s happening in the world and you can come across as being insensitive. Quality over quantity in my opinion.

      Depending on your niche, your audience may expect different tweeting frequencies. For me, tweeting once every 10-15 minutes works. However, you can only tell what your ideal frequency is by testing it out. Each time I increased my tweeting frequency, I got more traffic.

      Most people spend less than 20 minutes on the platform which means at most, someone will see two of my latest tweets on their feed before going somewhere else on the web. Most people don’t read my individual tweets, but by sending so many in a given day, I am able to get most people within my audience to see at least one of my tweets.

      Following people applies regardless of what niche you are in because when you start a new account, there is a more influential account related to your niche. These followers want value within the niche. If you can provide the value and start the connection, these people will follow you back and be genuinely interested in what you have to offer.

        Hi Mark,
        I am responding to your reply about Tweeting frequency.
        I use CoPromote which retweets for me.
        I also use a plug in which shares my posts on Twitter for me.
        I also use Buffer to schedule my tweets for me.
        I realize they are automated, but I don’t have time to do these manually. I don’t know how often, but from the looks of my feed, these tweets go out pretty often!
        After reading your comments, and from the looks of the crowded Twitter feed, it sounds like better too often than not often enough!

      Hi Rebecca,
      I had written a long comment about Barbara Streisand after seeing your headline. Shockwave crashed, and it vanished. So sorry.
      In response to what you wrote Marc,
      I agree that normally quality is better than quantity. However, if Marc’s tips and tools will enable you to use Twitter to reach more interested people with your content, I think that’s great. Thank you for writing us.

      Hi Gilly!
      It’s great to hear from you. Marc has certainly inspired me, and apparently he inspires young entrepreneurs as well. I have only been following his tips for a short time, and I already have hundreds of more Twitter followers as a result.
      Thank you for writing me today.

    Twitter does not send a ton of traffic to my blog, but I do use it to connect with influencers in my niche. I will try the part about following active accounts that follow the influencers in my niche. That is a good suggestion.

  9. Chris Mophart at 8:12 am

    I started blogging some time back and i must admit that Marc Guberti has been my mentor and has helped me grow my blogs traffic. I agree with some of the opinions about which platform between twitter and Facebook offers the best in terms of advertising and Facebook ads does wonders for my blog at the time . thanks everyone for your amazing insights on growing traffic.
