In this video, I’m going to show you why you should tweet as often as possible and how to get more followers; you see, studies have shown that the more you tweet, the more followers you’ll get. As long as the content is good, what a lot of people don’t realize is, a lot of the accounts that are looking at your tweets have to see your account, have to see your tweets a number of times before they start following you, so the amount of touch points they have
is really important.
When I say touch points, the more people that actually look at your tweets when they’re going through their feed on their phone, the more chance they will follow you in the long run and the only way this can happen is if they see your tweets multiple times in their thread BUT the content has to be good at the same time!
So, if you’re interested in that, let’s get to it but first…

So, you see, one of the problems a lot of people have is that they treat their account like it’s a normal account – they treat it like it’s their own personal one so they kind of just tweet whenever they want but if you want to get traction on Twitter, you do really need to make sure you have a certain amount of tweets each day and obviously, at the right time as well.
You see, by being professional about it and tweeting many times, you will get a lot more followers but you do have to tweet multiple times during the course of the day at the right times and the best way to do that is using automation tools – when I say automation tools, I’m talking about software automation tools that allow you to schedule your tweets
ahead of time. We’re talking HootSuite, Buffer, TweetDeck, Co-Schedule, Sprout Social
– there are many different tools that you can use to schedule your tweets ahead of time. My
personal favorite is TweetDeck.
Now, during the course of my business, I use a lot of software tools but TweetDeck for Twitter is, in my personal opinion, actually one of the best ones you can use and the
great thing is it’s free – it’s Twitter’s own tool and it’s really easy to use, mainly on
desktop, but you can also use it on mobile as well. The reason I like using it is because
it’s so intuitive, you just can’t believe just how easy it is to use and how easy
it is to actually schedule your tweets ahead of time, no matter how far in advance you want to.
Do me a favor – leave a comment down below and let me know what social media automation tools you use as well.
One of the things you also need to look at is not just the number of tweets that you put out but actually tweeting at the right time and the best thing you can do, especially if you’re a musician, is have a look at your peers to see when they’re posting their content. Now this is only an indicator (there are several) but you’re new to Twitter or you’re not used to using social media automation tools,I would recommend having a look at your peers’ accounts just to see when they tweet – you can go into the tweet itself; you just click into it and you can see the time and the date this was tweeted. You can also see the amount of engagement the tweet received as well which is really helpful to you as a new account.
Now ,if you’re not a new account, you can also look at your own tweets to find out when you got the most engagement and which then gives you an indication of when to schedule your tweets on TweetDeck to go out in the future.
Another good idea is, by looking at your peers’ tweets and actually seeing what sort of content they tweet as well – obviously, if you’ve got somebody who’s got a larger following than you and they get a lot more engagement, take a look at what they tweet and it’ll give you ideas, not to copy but take a look at their tweets just to see what sort of content they’re posting and again, that’ll give you a nice pointer of what you should be posting on your
Twitter account as well and guys, if you’re really interested in growing your following, I’m going to leave a link above – it’s a video I did previously about how to grow your first
1000 followers – it’s a really popular video and I think it’s one that you’ll get a lot out of.
I mentioned before that you should look at your peers’ tweets and also your previous
tweets to find out when you should be tweeting but my recommendation is, if you don’t do
that, go for three times a day; you’re looking at first thing in the morning, in the afternoon and then in the evening. Those are the three best times depending on which country you’re trying to target as a musician best times to tweet so, again, once in the morning, once in the afternoon and, lastly, once in the evening. The reason for this suggestion is because those are the best times to tweet – is when most people are gonna be online, looking at their phones before they get into work, at lunch time and just after they finish dinner or are watching their favorite series in the evening – these are the best times to tweet because that’s when they’re gonna be online.
Tweeting in itself is not the only thing you should do; you should also look to follow and engage with people who follow you. One of the best ways to increase your following is to engage and to get to know the followers who are engaging with you on a daily basis. If you do that; you jump into a conversation and leave a comprehensive tweet (comprehensive being a comment that gets noticed in their feed or gets noticed in their notifications, they will likely follow you back and that’s one of the reasons it’s good to engage on Twitter.
