Twitter is a Social Network service where we focus on building online communities with people who share the same interest and/or activities, or who are interested in the interest and activities of others.

You want to communicate your message to one or more people on Twitter. To communicate your message on Twitter you need get followers. When you first sign up with Twitter, you will have 0 people that you follow and 0 people that follows you. So if you send out a message at this time, you basically are talking to yourself.

So to start with, you want to find someone that you can follow. Then you will start receive their message and get an idea of how it works. But if you only are following them, and no one follow you back besides seeing their messages you still are just communicating with yourself.

We will here share with you some techniques you can use to build a quality followers base for your Twitter account.

My little Secret Tip: Setting yourself up for finding quality followers from top blog posts

Many of my followers and people I follow on Twitter daily share some high quality blog posts within my niche. Twitter authorities often write these posts. The trick here is to get in early on these posts, and make your comments there. Most top blogs today allows you to put in a link to your blog/website and most important they allow you to put your Twitter link there. If the blog don’t allow a Twitter link, then make sure you have your Twitter link visible on your blog/website.

After you have posted your comments that include your blog/website link plus your Twitter link you now want to do two things:

1. Put a link to this article on your website/blog
2. Tweet the link to the original blog where you made your comment

I recommend doing this at least on 5 various blogs per day. Then when you have done that you put your own blog/website into effect. And if you have an article ready now is the time to post it. Then you tweet the link to your article.

First you created a track back to the original blog post, and then you followed up with providing some traffic back to the blog.

#Bonus tip

Participate in informative webinars that talks about Twitter. Many of these webinars allows you to post your Twitter link. Here you will find some real quality followers.

I highly recommend Twittalk.tv

NOTE: Set your followers goal: I will get x followers within 3 months using The Simple Followers Guide.

Set a realistic goal, unless you are a celebrity don't set a goal higher then 1000. You are not prepared for handling any higher amount of followers yet.
