Can’t Think of Killer Content to Post on Twitter?

Now that you have an account, have done some following and have some followers it’s time to contribute and meet some new people.  (Note, for the first few weeks I suggest following people in your niche or interested in your niche so that you build a base of people to build relationships with.)

The whole follow people and get followed back practice, in mass, was not very appealing to me before but I now mix up the techniques that I use to get followers.We can talk more about this in a bit.  Today it is all content.

When I started posting on Twitter the only thing I knew to post about was myself and my business.    I would post what valuable actions I took for my business and then a few blurbs about my personal life.  Maybe six to twelve posts per day.  So then I began to post my favorite quotes.  I scheduled all of my quotes for the week on Sunday nights.  I would post two to three quotes a day when starting out.

I started gaining a lot more followers by Tweeting my favorite quotes than I had by tweeting quick tips or posts about my personal life.  I was adding value and knew it when my followers began to grow at a rapid pace.  The more I posted valuable content the more followers I got.

I did the quote thing for a couple of weeks as I learned more and more about Twitter and what my followers wanted to read about.  With that in mind I began posting about my favorite blog posts from my favorite bloggers.    Once I began tweeting links my interaction really stepped it up a level.  I have always followed my favorite topics and all of my internet business niche keywords using Google Alerts.  So I began to put Google Alerts to work.

Each morning I would read through all of my Google Alerts and post links to the most compelling and valuable content.  I was using Tweetlater to schedule all of these fantastic stories and was gaining more followers than I was [getting before].

When I saw that posting to my favorite content was working I began posting to my own content.  The more I wrote my own original content the more I Tweeted about and linked to my own site.  And the more often I blogged the more Twitter followers I got and the more readers I acquired for my blog.

So I was testing a lot of content and began to figure out what my followers or potential followers had the most interest in.
