If you want to get the most out of your Twitter Marketing efforts, you need to increase your Twitter engagement.

It’s as simple as that.

Many people believe that “more followers” means more revenue, but that’s not necessarily true.

You can put a lot of work on growing your following, but if your audience doesn’t pay attention to you, all that work is a waste of time.

Twitter followers are useless if they don’t share your tweets, click your links or like your content.

Now the question is:

How can you increase engagement on Twitter?

This guide has you covered. You’ll find 9 science-backed principles that will open the doors to a responsive, engaged audience.

I think one of the main reasons people don’t get good results with Twitter is because they don’t focus on getting the right kind of followers.

They seek for quantity, not quality.

If you focus on attracting followers who are actually interested in what you have to offer, they will click your links, comment your tweets, and share your content. Period.

As long as you keep that in mind, the 9 tips you learned today will undoubtedly boost your engagement.

    This is all great advice, But (how can I say this without coming off as a dick?) it’s ironic that theres a typo on #3 “Use the Right Words and Phrases” (you chances to get more tweets…) It should be your chances… The graf is all about increasing shares, and I was all set to share this graf, but I can’t now. I own the you/your issue once i tweet it or put it on my site. That being said, keep the great advice and knowledge coming!

    • Thanks for the heads up Scott :). The typo has been fixed.

  • Awesome tips Josue. I’ve practiced all of them except No.9. Thanks for the help 🙂

  • Al Woolhouse

    Excellent tips, thank you. I’ve been doing No. 9 wrong for the last 2000 tweets – doh!

    • It’s all about testing what works for you – so not wrong, you just did an extended test of links at the end 😉

        I like to be VERY sure something isn’t working before I stop doing it. 🙂

    source links as an image? Great way to turn of savvy people from sharing this content.

  • Another great post. It still blows my mind that asking people for retweets will actually provide 12 times more engagement; I feel like that practice doesn’t perform well on other social media platforms, but I could be wrong in that regard.

    • Hey Brandon! Thanks for reading and commenting. I think it’s only certain types of Tweets that work well for that – usually self-promotional and that likely skews the data quite a bit. If you’ve done a good job of building your tribe, followers will do you a solid and retweet one every once in a while if you ask. That said, I don’t think you can slap please RT onto any and every tweet and expect that much of a boost 🙂
