Twitter.com added an extra feature during the end of last year. This new feature may be still very new to you and you may not yet start to use it. I do not have time to fully utilize this new feature also at the meantime. With this new feature, you can actually organize your Twitter following and followers more accordingly to their group. You can also reduce quite a lot of unnecessary messages in your Twitter account. I guess you know what the new feature that I am referring to is. Yes, it is Twitter List! You can create your own Twitter List and you can take benefits from other people Twitter List.
Twitter users can create their own Twitter List and add other people to that list. If you like the list that they have created, then you can follow the list. You will be added to other people Twitter List according to what you are doing everyday on Twitter. For example, if you try to sell products everyday on Twitter, you may be added to an unfavorable list with all the people similar to you. However, if you always try to give the best information to others, you will be added to a favorable list and you will get more quality followers automatically without much effort. So, tweet quality messages and you will get quality people or vice versa.
After you are being added to their list, now it is easier for you to find the people in your niche, either your customers or your competitors. Browsing through the list that you are in, now you can follow all the people in that particular Twitter list or you can just follow the whole list. There are some very good Twitter List that will definitely benefit you if you only want to get more followers. For example, you can try to find the Twitter List that follow-back. By following those Twitter users in the follow-back list, you can increase your number of followers up to few thousands easily in no time, because those people will most probably follow you back. I really appreciate those users who create those Twitter Lists for the benefits of other people. Please do not spam your followers after they follow you back.
As you can see here, getting more followers on Twitter is nothing more difficult. To me, quantity of followers is not the most important factor to success in Twitter marketing, but the quality of the followers.
