I said it during the 2010 Successful Web App Metrics Event and I’ll say it again…I rather have 100 highly engaged followers than 100,000 unengaged followers.
The more engaged the follower, the more likely they are going to exchange value with you…whether by subscribing to your blog or actually paying you money for your product or service.
But how do you get that quality following without buying followers or simply following 1,000 people and hoping they follow you (which is a terrible strategy)?
Well, you can have this sort of following in just 20 days with a minimal of 20 minutes a day by engaging in the following activities.
Let’s start from the beginning.
Day 1 – Create A Short, Unique Name…
Your first step to creating a massive following is to create your account. And your first step when it comes to creating an account is coming up with a name.
The best names are short and memorable.
If your first and last name are short enough, then use it as your twitter handle…that is if it isn’t already taken. But you don’t have to use your name since your identity will show up on your Twitter account.
