Drive traffic to your blog with Twitter

My normal blog posts are about blogging and blogging tips, but it seems that people are really interested in building up their Twitter engagement. And I can’t blame them! I think for bloggers and blogging, that Twitter is the perfect tool. So here are three things you can do right now to increase your Twitter engagement.

Follow these three easy to do right-now tips to increase your Twitter engagement, TODAY!

Tip #1
Look at your Followers list. Follow everyone that is following you.
If they are a blogger, click the follow button.
If they are a writer, click the follow button.
If they are a cause or business that you support, click the follow button.

Tip #2
If your account is private, make it public.
I won’t follow private twitter accounts. Seems too fishy or that you are hiding something. I’m sure others feel that way too.
If you use some validation program or app, turn it off. If a validation comes up, I won’t follow the account.

Note: If you are worried about spam accounts, Twitter has two awesome features, the mute button, and the block button. Use them if you find an account that you do not like.

Tip #3
Now, interact with your followers.
Monday pick 5 followers and retweet their pinned tweet.
Tuesday pick 5 different followers, go to their blog and comment on it.
Wednesday pick 5 more followers and retweet their lasted blog post.
Thursday pick 5 more followers and retweet their Instagram page (or some other tweet).

On Friday mention all twenty of these followers in Follow Friday tweet #FF.
Send out the #FF tweet, you may have to do this in two tweets depending on the user’s handle size, but that’s okay. Do this in the morning and then again in the afternoon.

By doing these three easy-peasy tips, I know that your Twitter followers and Twitter engagements will increase. You can’t expect any results if all you do is wait for someone to come to you. Twitter is a social network, so start being social and watch your engagement grow!!

I hope you enjoyed these Twitter tips. If you did, leave a comment below. Even if you didn’t like these tips, leave a comment below. I read and respond to every comment.

  1. Hi Dan, all great ideas and ones that I’m sure would increase followers but here’s my problem. I’m only using Twitter because I want to increase traffic to my blog. I’m only blogging because I would really like to write a book 📚 probably a chick-lit romance page turner ✍️💋based in the English countryside (which I blog about but my blog is my real life). 🏡🌳 The problem is that my Twitter followers are not the kind of people who would be interested in my blog and certainly not the kind who would be interested in a countryside romp romance ❤️, they are gamekeepers, gardeners, countryside lovers who have the same interests as me. How do I reach the bored housewives and the city dwellers wanting to escape, the kind of folk who I think might enjoy my blog and future book more?

      Great question!!!
      The quick answer is you have to go out and find your followers.
      Let’s see how…
      For your genre, where are your potential followers located?
      Who is an author or authors that write in your genre?
      What about a couple movies that are in the same genre?
      Find these groups and start following the people that follow these writers.
      For instance, I’m a Stephen King fan and doing a quick search on Twitter. I see that there is Stephen King of course, but there is also a group called Club Stephen King. That club has 39 thousand followers. If I were writing a horror story, that means there are 39 thousand potential people who would be interested in my book.
      You can also do the same thing with Facebook Groups.
      I hope that helps.

      Matthew, thanks for stopping by.
      I’m glad you like the tips. Social media is all about being social and those three tips are a great way to start.
      I use these tips too and organically grow my following about 100 new followers a week.

  3. Fabulous tips will definitely try all …Thnk you …

  4. Great tips! They are simple yet many of them aren’t practiced regularly. We will be implementing them soon!

  5. Brilliant tips, Dan! I love to engage with people on Twitter but can I be real a moment. Me being a newbie, I didn’t even know about those mute buttons. Some accounts I’ve followed fill my feed so much with advertising every hour or so. Who knows how they do it. I don’t want to an unfollower but scrolling through all of it is getting tedious, especially when they are repeating. I feel like I’m missing out on my favourite tweeters.. I had thought of trying out twitter lists, but I have no idea how the list option works or if it’s worth it? Would you consider doing a blog post about it? That’ll be amazing.

    Thanks and I’m loving your blog as always 😄
