[VIDEO] How to Become Twitter Famous and Get More Followers

How to Become Twitter Famous and Get More Followers ~ MommyTalkShow.com

The first time someone called me “Twitter Famous” I was pretty surprised. Yes, I loved to tweet  about family-friendly brands and I even get paid to tweet when I host Twitter Parties. But I still didn’t consider myself famous with just 5,000 Twitter followers in August 2013. So @MsCandaceWoodsthis post is inspired by you! (Remember that time we walked to The Grove?)

Then earlier this year, my new friend Mandi from @ChewsyLovers, was my “wing woman” on the road trip to #SoFabCon14 in Bentonville, AR. Mandi asked me the same question about mastering Twitter and growing a following. So this post is also for you. I’m proud to say I’ve reached 7,600+ followers (as of July 29, 2014) and I have some goals in mind like reaching 9,000 followers by the end if August.

I’m not doing it for an ego trip. This month, Twitter was my number once source of traffic. It also helped one of my posts about reasons you’ll regret not having a home telephone go viral when it was picked up by NBC News and included in a report showing home phone use is down. More than 2,000 people came to my site in one day just to see that post.

But back to Twitter and growing an audience. To get advice for me and you,  I consulted with ladies who are truly “Twitter Famous”  and have a combined 200,000. Check out my advice and theirs in this video:

    I am not twitter Famous lol probably never will be. I love twitter the most but my traffic comes from Pinterest. I am just now utilizing lists and the twitter parties help my growth tremendously. I also make it a point to follow at least 20 new people a week I normally get about half of them to follow back so it works. Great post
