1. Creating a Profile
It is not important to create a new profile again if you don’t have anything too personal on your existing one or if your current one isn’t is too cluttered. The reason is that your readers are always keen on knowing who they a interacting with while reading your posts. Never hide behind the mask of your blog. Now give all the necessary information to your account and then design it appropriately. When you’re entering the small description about yourself, Avoid entering “I am the best…” or “… The great” because you’re going to deal with the high end professionals and not your family again, This will create a cheap image of yourself on them. Keep it simple and short, Preferable just your profession and what you do.
2. Start Tweeting
Start tweeting everyday or even more than once a day but what is more important is consistency. There are a couple of softwares available to schedule your tweets so that it’ll tweet for you even while you’re asleep. Let users know what is going on your blog and keep exciting them from the new content that is updated in your blog. You might be wondering that you don’t have any followers yet who would read your tweets, How are you going to reach them? Relax, Keep practicing and keep tweeting until you’ve done at least 15-20 of ’em. The reason behind them is that when people click on the ‘Follow’ button, They’ll have a better understanding of your living and tweeting. A blank profile will create a blank image of yourself to them. Also try to keep posting interesting pictures from your blog and interesting titles as 140 characters aren’t enough for some people out there.
3. Getting followers
Start following a couple of high end professionals in your niche. Now when you click on their followers or following list of a specific person, You will find people having similar interests as this critic.
