Acquiring Valuable Twitter Followers

…and submit. Congratulations, your Twitter account is now live! Great news for your dental patients and great for your dental practice. After your profile and bio is complete, it’s time to focus on your actual niche. What good is getting a follower if they have no interest in what you sell? Take a minute and do a Twitter search on your niche: . For example teeth whitening, Invisalign braces, or maybe porcelain fillings.

A well-labeled Twitter list gives you immediate access to very specific groups of people who are likely to already be interacting with others in that niche.

Here are five tips on mining lists for valuable followers.

1 - Follow relevant hashtags
A hashtag that denotes content or a community of twitter users who are interested in a subject that you are interested in is a rich and constantly growing list of potential followers. It will also give you great insight into the kind of information these people are most interested in.

2 - Look at lists created by influential people in your specific dental field
I have found more than half of my targeted followers by employing this habit. All you need to do is go to any influential twitter’s list and scan whom they follow. On the other hand, you can simply click on their twitter account and get suggestions given by Twitter itself based on your list and the person you are looking into. You’ll find all kinds of valuable potential followers that you won't find any other way.

3 - Look at lists that list you
If it's a list titled "Thanks for following me", don't bother this is someone out to gather the greatest number of followers with absolutely no intention of actually obtaining worthwhile followers. However, if it's a list with an enviable title, or a title directly related to your dental practice, check it out. I've found quite a lot of potential followers this way as well.

4 - Make your own lists and add to them on a regular basis
Creating a list(s) is very simple. The value of making a list is worth a lot more than the time it took to create one. All you have to do is the following five steps:
● Visit the profile of the first user you would like to add to your list
● Click the person icon. This brings up a drop-down Actions menu.
● Select "Add to list"
● Enter the credentials of your list and choose whether others can see it or whether it is private
● Check, to see if the user you wanted to add was successfully included in that list: to do this, click the person icon and select "Add to list". A checkmark will be added next to lists in which that user is included (shown below under "Adding or Removing People").

The golden rule really works on Twitter so if you want to find great lists of people to follow, start making some yourself. You will find that people will start to list you more often, and of course being listed is another great way for potential followers to find you.

Lastly…

5 – Don’t fall for the “they follow me so I have to follow them” pitfall
Just because you add them to your list, doesn't mean you have to follow them. You'll want your lists to be valued be others, because they will see you as more knowledgeable and well connected. Keep in mind that you don't have to follow the people that you include on a list. Therefore, for instance, if you're thinking of listing an influential person who you know is very unlikely to follow you back, go ahead and list them. Just don't follow them.
