10 Ways To Build Twitter Followers: Find PeopleTwitter has some real power for getting the word out about your small business because it has strength in numbers. In a way, it’s like a broadcast channel.

When combined with smart device applications that make it possible to tweet on-the-go . . . its power is even greater.

With that said, here are 10 ways to build Twitter followers for your small business. We’ll walk you through each tip — one by one.

Twitter tip number one is a no brainer – find people!

Using Twitter’s “Find People” feature is the very first step you should take. This feature offers a couple of ways to locate Twitter users whom you may already know.

  • Search for friends, family and customers using the feature.
  • Or simply have Twitter go through your email account to hook you up with your current contacts.

To do so, simply log in to your Twitter account.  Look at the top right of your screen and you will see tiny links across the page.  Yep, there it is  . . .  the “Find People” link.  Choose the “find on other networks” tab and you can search through contacts in Gmail, Yahoo! and AOL.  While you’re there, you can invite other users you may know by email and search through the suggested users for some famous faces.

And while you’re at it, check out Twitter Search.  You can find people by name, keywords, interests, locations, other social media networks.  Once you get going, you’ll see that it’ll be very hard for you to stop.  There’s just so much – and so many – to discover.  So get going by starting to search and explore your new world of Twitter.

Well, that’s it – that’s the first step and it’s really that simple.  Be sure to click the red “Next” button to see the next tip – it gets better as we go along. . .
