There is a shiny side however. There are a few big levers you can pull to quickly collect at least 1,000 quality followers for your personal or professional Twitter account. You just need to know how to invest your time and effort.

Twitter profile_@wearewhitespace1) Create and customize your profile

  • Determine your purpose for being on Twitter, and identify a target audience to you to identify what you should tweet.

  • Customize your Twitter profile to (a) make it look smart and business polished, (b) inform potential followers who you are, and (c) provide a reason why you're worth a follow.


2) Tweet 24/7

  • Your greatest leverage for growing your followers is to tweet as often as you can.

  • Tweet content you create, tweet content created by others; and tweet that content more than once.

  • Install the Chrome extension for your social publishing tool of choice to more efficiently tweet content as you discover it.


3) Curate content like a pro


4) Go beyond text: Make tweets visual

  • People gravitate to visual content over words any day. Take the time to create great visuals. It pays off in engagement, conversion, and click-through rates.


5) Follow and list a lot of real people

  • Your second greatest lever for growing your followers other than tweeting around the clock is to follow and list people (without violating Twitter's follower restrictions).


6) Attend a hashtag-friendly event

  • Your next best bet for growing your following is to attend a conference or join a Twitter chat because your tweets reach an attentive audience with greater frequency.


7) Make your profile easy to follow

  • At the very least, place a Twitter follow button on your website homepage, your 'About Us' page, your blog homepage sidebar, your business cards, your storefront window – anywhere your potential follower will see it.
