One of the biggest struggles my clients often have is starting a twitter account and gaining followers.
It’s the ole chicken before the egg problem. No followers, no reach and as a result no new followers. So how do you break this vicious cycle of pain and misery.
Start a twitter group.
Find 5 or 6 like minded twitterers, they don’t have to be in the exact business you are in but you want to align yourself with businesses that compliment you. An example would be a real estate agent, lawyer, home inspector and mortgage broker. Each of you can cross promote your tweets, blog post and other content.
Working together you immediately have more reach, more content and as a result more followers.
