Oh, to be internet famous. It’s every millennial’s dream right? We grew up looking up to the first wave of internet famous people. Tila Tequila Facebook famous. Panic at the Disco Youtube famous. Perez Hilton Twitter famous. Looking at Twitter specially, how do you get more followers using hash tags? Here are the basic principles:
1. Avoid gimmicks
People don’t just magically get thous s of followers. It’s hard work, but plausible. There are some people who cheat and use services promising more followers. These gimmicks are tempting but the results are terrible. One may look important or popular by doing this, but in most cases the accounts following them are simply spam bots. No one ever got famous by paying for it.
2. Know your audience
The people with the most followers know the type of follower they are looking for. They have a niche and they use it to their advantage. Most people use hash tags related to their industry. Fashion blogger #fashion. Health Gurus #healthyliving. Mom’s with blogs #MomAdvice. Think about who would benefit the most from the content you are tweeting, and find the appropriate tags.
3. Be relevant
Perez Hilton didn’t just stumble into a career. He built his empire the same way all of you will. He stayed up-to-date on current topics. He provided relevant content to a niche market. One way to gain followers is to look at what’s trending on Twitter and include those topics in tweets.
No one becomes an overnight internet sensation without a famous dad and a sex tape. Without those two things, hard work and strategy will pay off , when it does, it can happen in a flash. People who are relevant, know their audience and avoid gimmicks have the greatest success. Be strategic, utilize available resources, and happy hunting in finding followers!
