So you’ve been tweeting for a while and you’ve followed all of the advice about what you should and shouldn’t tweet, but why aren’t you getting any more followers? Continue reading for 5 tips for gaining more twitter followers for your dental practice.
This by far is the most important thing you can do to increase your Twitter followers. By now, you should know that when it comes to blogging, we mean business. Blogging for your business is a practice that can increase your social media presence, your authority, your traffic and your new patient leads.
The reason is simple. When you blog, you have something to share on social networks and you have something for others to share on social networks. If that person has good Twitter etiquette, he or she will attach your name to it. Boom, your Twitter name just got pushed out to a new audience!
This is the second most important thing you can do to increase your Twitter followers. Like blogging consistently, Tweeting consistently will keep your name out there, increase the likeliness of getting replied to and retweeted and increase your reach.
As Twitter is a massive search engine, when you tweet about relevant topics to your profession, you will be found by others interested in those topics; people follow keywords and lists on Twitter.
By creating a presence beyond your own website, you will be introduced to a new network and with that comes new followers.
If you’re looking for opportunities to guest blog, you can find many by typing in “Guest Blog Submissions” or something similar in Google. Another way to approach the subject is to ask blogs that you follow and pitch them on a topic that suits their audience. Like all things in social media, it’s about building relationships.
If you blog regularly on your own site and you create great content other people will come knocking at your door to have you guest blog for them. Why don’t you ask one of your referring Dentists if you can write a blog for their site about specialist treatments?
If you email a lot, include your Twitter handle in your email signature, on your website, within your blog, inside your Pinterest account, in your LinkedIn headline and anywhere else that’s public. The easier you make it for someone to find your profile, the more followers you’ll get.
If you attend conferences and exhibitions, such as Dental Showcase, live tweet them. It’s a great way to grow your following with a targeted audience and network. Participating in Twitter chats has the same effect.
