How do you get a broader reach?

I am trying to grow on Twitter. I think it goes ok, and I see some folks liking what I share. However, most times I see the same people liking my tweets. What has worked for you? Getting comments? Retweets?

Or reply to others ofc.

My growth rate is moderate, so I am not really in the position to give advice.

Three things that have worked for me: During some weeks, I didn’t allow myself to simply like, I always had to reply. That was quite powerful and helped to build relationships outside my WBEspace bubble.

Also, hashtags or lists are helpful to engage with different people, e.g. #tweet100 challenge

And speaking on Twitter Spaces.

Btw, Ruben, 350 followers with 356 tweets is impressive - almost 1:1 ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I have 3158 tweets and 237 followers :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Thanks Luise! I think that replying may be more effective than posting. Haha true thanks, I got quite some folks from my software. Probably need to ask people to follow me on some emails.

One thing that has always worked for getting more followers is replying insightfully to bigger accounts - fairly early after they post.

You get some of their engagement runoff.

You can setup a notification to get alerted to when a bigger account tweets - helps when their audience could be your audience too.

That is a strong idea! How do you setup such a notification? Can be interesting to try it out :)

Ruben you can go to their account, and there will be an (bell icon) option to notify when they tweet.

Getting into people DMs is great. I’m trying it out and it’s awesome to get to know people better and make friends ๐Ÿ˜Š

Although not very scaleable. You can try Luca’s Hivoe though if you want to automate it.

Hiveo has been fun Ruben, if itโ€™s set up with good questions in the message, you can spark a good conversation. Knowing who my followers are has helped me engage better.

LaLa Artica, have you ever tried to analyse how many of your new follower answer the question? My ratio is 50/50 and I am wondering whether it’s because of the message ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Great question, I’ll have to look

Suvojit Manna โ€˜s method works really well. Got a couple of new followers that are pretty interesting after replying on bigger accounts. Also some new signups and someone that wanted to work together

Glad to know it worked Ruben

Hi, Ruben! I share my experience.

I stopped using tactics, hacks, and growth strategies when I had around 400 followers (probably 1200 or 1300 now).

I also stopped to check Twitter Analytics. Mostly.

And I started to grow like a rocket. I donโ€™t mean like Twitter stars, but it was an insane growth for me.

What helped me?

Mindset shift. I treat people as friends and try to help them as much as possible. I have video chats. I meet with people offline.

And I now am OK with having what I have. I am even afraid a bit to have more followers. I feel it as a responsibility.

I hope, it helps a bit.
