Tools to Build Followers

  • Step One:  Sign up for an account on JustUnfollow.  (It’s cheap — $8 a YEAR!)
  • Step Two:  Link it to your Twitter account
  • Step Three:  Click on “home” on JustUnfollow.  Click on “Unfollow” and unfollow anyone who isn’t following you.   (Do this only 1-2 times a WEEK.  Anymore than this might get your account flagged by Twitter.)
  • Step Four:  Click on “home” on JustUnfollow.  Click on “find followers”.  Follow back anyone listed there that matches your industry or target audience.
  • Step Five: Use the tool (JustUnfollow.com) to “copy follower”.  It’s as easy as adding the follower.  Personally, I give a brief overview before following people to make sure that they match my audience or someone in my industry.
  • Lather/Rinse/Repeat Daily: That’s it!  See how easy it is?  I do this every day.  Takes me less than 10 minutes per account and I can gain anywhere from 100 to 500 new followers a day!
