Having more followers on Twitter is a direct reflection on your success as a micro-blogger. The more followers you have, the louder the voice you have.

Below are some important housekeeping tips to keep in mind when creating an appealing Twitter account.

  1. Lastly, try getting off the computer. Not all advertising is done online and you can attain followers from printed materials. It is very important to put your Twitter handle on your printed materials such as your business cards or postcards for events. This is also one of the most powerful ways to get your name out there. Give them your Twitter handle directly so they know exactly how to find you!

By following these tips and making quick adjustments, you will have a successful Twitter account. Remember to give your followers a reason to follow you, by providing them with information that they can benefit from. Show who you really are in a professional way to excite your followers.
