Getting thousands of people to follow you on Facebook or Twitter can translate into big popularity and even bigger earnings.
But before you catch to that magic four digit number, you need to be aware of the tactics that are most likely to catch you noticed and popular. In many ways Facebook and Twitter are no out of the ordinary than the basic principles of search engine optimization, or SEO for short. With SEO you have to maintain quality and frequency of content. The great thing about using public media is that the content you bring may be nothing more than a few short lines in a status update. With Twitter, you can't even use more than 140 characters! Brevity allows you more time than what a 400 to 450-word article requires. Making daily status updates keeps you in the eyes of all your existing friends, and the more beneficial your updates and postings are, the more thinkable you have to go viral. Once you have reached viral status, it is possible that thousands of future followers and friends will be coming to you rather than you going to them. When that happens, it's just a matter of confirming new friendships as immediately as you can. However, this is not the only way to raise your friends and followers on the two popular sites. Facebook now has a function where you can immediately and easily search for people from your hometown, your alma mater, or thinkable business associates. Once you have established the Facebook friendship, it is easier to see whether or not the party has a Twitter account. (This information is generally posted in their "Info" section.) Using one to build up your profile on other is perhaps the best way to inflate those numbers in a hurry, but it is not the only way. Other good way is by using good old-fashioned traditional advertising. When you bring a quality product or service and you use traditional advertising to catch your public media account out there in the public eye, the friend requests generally come to you. Of course, no one course of action is better than other-they're all simply different. Ideally you should be using all three to grow your profiles as immediately as possible so more people will be aware of who you are and what you do. Once you have a solid foundation in Facebook and Twitter, you should start eyeing at ways to integrate the two into one other and cut back on maintenance time. There are a assortment of services out there which can help you in this area.
