Twitter is a bit of a hidden treasure for marketers. There's much more than meets the eye with this micro-blogging social network.
Many marketers avoid Twitter, and focus most of their efforts on Facebook and Instagram. Yet some savvy marketers who are in-the-know are using Twitter every single day to build a massive audience, get traffic to their sites, rake in 30+ leads every single day…and even rank videos.
In fact, Todd and Leah Getts (A mighty power couple inside MLSP) have broken records as they skyrocketed up the ranking ladder, became L6 leaders extremely fast, with Todd able to retire from a healthy $6-Figure corporate career…
Almost completely with Twitter!
It all starts with the first step though. Getting followers and building your audience. And that's what this article will focus on – how to get more twitter followers!
While Facebook and Instagram grab a lot of the spotlight, Twitter and it's 140 characters are one of the most effective ways get free leads and traffic.
Twitter simply gives you more bang for your buck (A.k.a. FREE!)
While Facebook Marketing and Instagram are a great way to generate leads as well, Twitter is always there waiting for you to take advantage.

How to Build Your Twitter Audience for FREE
You scratch my back I'll scratch yours. Twitter runs on the unspoken rule of reciprocity. Meaning when you follow someone on Twitter, it's customary for them to follow you back. The same goes for Likes, and Retweets!
Which means it's quite simple to quickly build an audience of like-minded people… who want (and need) what you have to offer.
Know Where Your Audience is Hanging Out to Get Twitter Leads for FREE!
The first step in attraction marketing (or any marketing for that matter) is to know where to find your target audience.
Much like when you're prospecting on Facebook and you go to the Fanpage of a leader to attract prospects, you can do close to the same on Twitter. You simply have to ask yourself…
Who is Your Target Audience Following?
If you're in the network marketing arena, it might interest you to know that:
- Ray Higdon has over 65K followers on Twitter.
- Ann Seig has over 70K followers
- Eric Worre has over 79K followers
- Todd Falcone has over 36K followers
Why is that important to you?
Because all of these are leaders in the network marketing industry, and they're sitting on a pool of prospects that they have already done the work to get. Thanks guys and gals!
Not in network marketing? There are leaders and companies with massive Twitter followings in your niche as well. Guaranteed.

Twitter Limits You Need to Know About
While they're a little bit more relaxed with the rules of automation, Twitter has wisely anticipated some shenanigans when it comes to people getting followers for FREE.
As Gary Vaynerchuck says: “Marketer's ruin everything!”
Unfortunately he's right. That being said, we're marketers who play by the rules, even if we inch right up close to the line. So it's important to know the rules.
Here are the 3 simple rules you need to play by to get free leads on Twitter…
- Follow up to 1000 people per day
- Follow up to 5000 total without restriction
- After 5000 ‘followings' you are limited to following 10% above the number of followers you have (Total)
- 5000 followers = you get 5500 followings
- 7000 follower = 7700 followings
- 20,000 followers = 22,000 followings
Which is why you'll want to unfollow those who do not follow you back (we'll get to that in one second!)

The Must Have Tool to Easily Get 4000+ Followers a Month
Tools make life easier. Every good mechanic needs their tools, and so does every good marketer.
The beauty of Twitter is that they don't beat you up too bad when you use automation tools to grow your business faster. Other social media sites like Facebook and Instagram have started to render automation tools useless.
So what's the best tool to automate getting more twitter followers?
Manage Flitter: What Is It, and How to Get More Twitter Followers With It?
Manage Flitter is a web app that's extremely easy to use, and will dramatically speed up your results.
As we said above, the best way to get targeted followers (who are going to be interested in what you have) is to simply follow the followers of the leaders in your niche.
Of course doing that manually can be a bit of headache. Especially if you've got some criteria that you have to sort through to find the best matching audience.
That's where Manage Flitter fits into your business perfectly.
This tool helps you do two very critical things when building your audience.
- Find targeted followers based on specific criteria that YOU set…
- Unfollow those that aren't following you back to get rid of the dead wood.
Which Version? Free or Paid?
So like most great online tools, there's a free version of Manage Flitter, and an upgraded paid version.
Which should you use? That all depends on your goals and your budget.
In this business you are going to trade one of two things for results. Time, or Money. You are either going to put in more time to get results using free activities and tools, or you are going to drastically cut your time spent with money put towards a tool that will speed things up for you.
The good news is that at $12 a month, Manage Flitter is pretty budget friendly. And if you're serious about growing a business, you'll want to hop on the Pro level as quickly as possible.
The free version is limiting. And you can only access “Power Mode” with the Pro Version!
Power Mode: (Pro Version)
‘Power Mode' is an aptly named advanced feature of Manage Flitter that lets you target a ‘follow source' (a leader in your niche), and apply filters to find the most targeted audience for YOUR business. Below we're going to give you a complete guide to show you how to get more twitter followers using Manage Flitter's Power Mode.
7 Easy Steps to Copy the Followers of an Account With Manage Flitter's Power Mode!
Step 1: Navigate to ‘Power Mode'
Once you log into Manage Flitter's dashboard, click ‘Manage' (first category) on the top menu. In the drop down box, you'll select ‘Power Mode'.
Here's what you'll see once there:
Step 2: Create a Filter
On the left side menu, you'll click “Create Filter”. This will allow you to select specific criteria of the people that you'll choose to follow. In other words you’re filtering out the ones you don’t want. You'll end up at this screen:
Step 3: Select Data Source
This is where we get to be picky about who we follow so we have the most targeted audience for our niche.
There are a number of options for you here, but to get started you'll only need to check 3 boxes in this area if you're trying to build a wide audience for your products or opportunity.
- Check the box for: ‘Users You're Not Following'
- Check the box for: ‘Users Not Following You'
- Check the box for: ‘Users Following'.
- Add the name of the account who's followers you want to bring to your account and choose ‘Find up to 5000' in the drop down menu!
So if we wanted to grab up Ray Higdon's followers for instance, we'd be able to search for Ray Higdon's followers… that you're not already following… and who aren't yet following you.
Make's sense right? Here's what that looks like:
Step 4: Optional Criteria
Let's get a bit more picky here so we only follow quality folks, with real accounts, who speak our language, and who aren't going to spam us.
Here are the boxes you'll want to check in this area…
- Active Users
- With Profile Image
- English (This is optional if you speak other languages!)
- Not in ‘Never Follow Group' (you may not have that yet)
- No Pending Follow Requests (so you don't get reported to Twitter)
MLSP PRO TIP
Optional Criteria (Recommended by MLSP L6 Leaders Todd & Leah Getts)
- Account Age: Set to find accounts at least a month old.
- SPAM Possibility: Set at no more than 20% to make sure that you're not targeting spammers that will just fill up your account!
Step 5: Hit Save and Name Your Group
The next step is simple.
You have two options. You can either hit the blue button that says “Show Matches” and that's exactly what it will start doing immediately. Or you can do what Todd & Leah Getts recommend which is to hit “Save” and create a group based on this search criteria.
Remember those limits above for getting followers? Well if you're going after a big dog like Ray Higdon who has 65K Twitter followers, there will still be 64K left when you're done. So when you save and name your group, you come right back tomorrow and start again!
Otherwise you have to go through all the steps again!
Step 7: Start Following!
Boom! We got to the fun part. It's time to start following the people who show up in the results.
You do that by simply clicking the “Follow” button next to each account.
Here's the caveat. You do have to do this part manually. There's no catch-all button. However, you can click that mouse pretty darn quick.
Then simply give it a break, and come back again a couple minutes later. Rinse and repeat until you have followed your allotted 1000 accounts for the day.

The Critical Step of Unfollowing Those Who Don't Follow Back!
So when you get Twitter leads for Free with this method, it's important to understand that not everybody will follow you back. In fact depending on a number of factors, many won't!
Which means we have to unfollow them!
How to Find the People to Unfollow Inside ‘Manage Flitter'
Go to ‘Manage’ – In the drop down menu, click the ‘Unfollow' tab.
This will pull up all of those mean folks who didn't follow you back. But don't worry, you get to take your revenge now. You get to unfollow them!
Actually we're not doing this to be spiteful. This is simply to clear up space so that Twitter will then allow us to follow more people. (But that’s not saying you can’t enjoy it a little bit!)

What About the People You've Just Followed?
Manage Flitter lets you avoid prematurely unfollowing these people by adding another filter.
So that you don't UN-follow the people that you've just followed. Normally you should set this at 3 or 4 days. However if you've just started the process of getting free twitter followers, then you'll want to set it a bit higher until you get the ball rolling.
To add these filters simply click the ‘Display Icon' right above your list of followers that looks like a little gear.
Following Filters: “Exclude people you have followed in the past 5 days. (Be sure to check the box that reads: ‘Exclude people in your “Never Unfollow” group!'
Here's How Unfollowing Inside ‘Manage Flitter' Works in Real Time
Extra Tips on How to Get More Twitter Followers!
Use Hashtags To Get More Twitter Followers
Hashtags are a cool little shortcut for people to get to the info that they want on Twitter.
Adding a # sign in front of a word turns it into a targeted keyword rich hashtag. Hashtags can be used in a few different ways.
One of the Main Reasons People Use Twitter!
The greatest majority of Twitter users go to the site to get NEWS!
The Twittersphere is on top of the game when it comes to hunting down, and sharing news on any subject. Which goes for YOUR niche too.
For example if you want to find out what's going on in the world of MLM, you can search #MLM in the Twitter search. Now whoever used that as a tag in their post will be displayed. These people are interested in that subject because they're tweeting about it.
Which means that if you use #hashtags in your posts, and somebody searches for that keyword, then YOUR content will pop up for them. Which gives them the chance to click to follow you.
Use Hashtags Within Your Posts to Attract Twitter Followers
The best practice for hashtags is to figure out a way to use them in your Twitter posts, within a sentence that you're writing.
Example of a Tweet with hashtags:
Now at a time when the Dodgers are in the World Series, you can probably bet a lot of people will be searching for that hashtag, even if they click on the hashtag in someone else's post. 😉
Use Hashtags at the End of Your Posts
You can still get attention with your hashtags even if you can't actually fit them within the content of your posts.
Here’s an Example of that…
Want To Get More Twitter Followers? You MUST Engage!
Twitter is a social media platform. Which means it pays big to be social and engage with your followers.
When you comment on posts, retweet posts that you and your audience will find interesting, or like a post… the other person gets notified. Remember that whole “Law of Reciprocity” thing?
That's right. When you engage with your followers, they will engage back. And when they do, followers that aren't yet following you may see it. And decide to follow you as well.
You're also not restricted to engaging only with YOUR followers. You can engage with people that haven't followed you yet. When you do, they'll be more likely to follow you. Because you're adding value to them by being responsive.
Share Valuable Posts and Get Retweets to Get More Twitter Followers
For the above to be true, you increase your odds of a retweet when what you're posting adds value.
This after all is attraction marketing at it's finest. People are attracted to value. They want to share valuable content to their audience to earn more goodwill. Will your posts be the one that they share?
