Did you know that Twitter can be an incredible promotional tool for your etsy shop when used correctly? It takes a while to get established in twitter land but it can potentially become a huge source of traffic and allow you to reach a targeted audience. It’s a powerful tool not available to such an extent with other forms of advertising and promotion.
My First Step- Build Up Twitter Following
The first challenge most people face with twitter is not knowing how to build up their follower base.
A basic strategy you can use to build up your follower numbers is : Follow, Reciprocate and Flush (defined below). I use Tweepi.com to manage most of this easily all from the one place (it will save you a lot of time! I love Tweepi!).
Follow- If you search for and follow a lot of other people on twitter, many will follow you back, thus growing your follower number.
Reciprocate- Some people will find you on their own and follow you- keep your followers by following them back.
Flush- To really build your follower numbers, you can follow as many people as you are able to (up to your limit) then wait for a period before ‘flushing’ (unfollowing) the users who did not follow you back. This allows you to then repeat the process and start finding more people to follow.
Additional Info & Tips:
You can keep an eye on changes in your follower number by using a twitter stats site such as TwitterCounter (although I’m not sure if it’s always accurate).
