Some basic instructions on how to find followers on Twitter.

Finding followers on Twitter is one thing. Finding the right followers is an other matter, however.

From a business point of view, you want followers that are potentially interested in what you have to offer them. This means you have to go through a selection process, searching for people to follow in the hope they'll follow you back. This goes through:

  • An efficient and appealing bio and profile. Most people receive an e-mail when someone follows them (because they didn't disable this function which is on by default), that e-mail contains your bio and a link to your profile. You must get them interested at that point.
  • Keyword searches: you can find people to follow by using a keyword search, but also by using search parameters in order to refine your query. Learn more about this in this tutorial: Twitter tutorials, stage 5: find people to follow manually 
  • Automation tools: there are some tools out there, online services or applications you can install on your computer, that will allow you to automate your Twitter tasks. TweetAttacks is probably the best tool for this, but it is also quite complex and some good training might be in order if you want to do this seriously. Update: TweetAttacks is no more. If you have it, it will keep working for the time being and you may still be interested in the training, but if you don't have it, you can't buy it anymore. I will soon replace it here with another tool, probably the one I actually use every day (I wasn't using TweetAttacks because it's a windows-only tool).
  • The right behavior: finding followers shouldn't be your only concern, keeping them is also something you should think about. Offer them content and information they'll be interested in, don't send them only directly business-related tweets (promotional offers and stuff to buy).

One thing you shouldn't do however, is buying Twitter followers. You'll find offers out there for this, but these are people who are not interested at all in what you have to offer, in other words they are worthless and there's no guarantee they won't stop following you after some time.

I like your post. It is quite short but very detailed. I agree with you with your point that there are different kinds of followers and in the business arena, they want interested followers. So, I think it would all boil down on the lay down content of your tweet.

For additional information about gaining the right followers, you can check out the link below.

Thanks. I don't have many followers yet. I will bear this in mind.

You're welcome.
Your followers can grow quite nicely with the right tools (I'm around 5000 after roughly a month and a half), not so long ago I would have told you to try the free version of TweetAttacks but you can't anymore as they've just closed down due to a complaint from Twitter...
I have another tool that's working just fine but not so long ago there were a few problems to download it, so I've just asked them if the problems are solved. I'm waiting for their answer, I should know within a day or so, when I get the confirmation I will update this article.
