I’m digging these stats. I love the number of new followers. It’s 2-3x more than it was a few months ago. I’d like to share how I did this.
I’ve been trying out an interesting service called Social Quant. I recently met Mike Kawula, the company’s CEO, on Twitter. I was so impressed with him that I interviewed him for my #TwitterSmarter podcast. The episode is not out yet but when it does, you’ll love it. Mike has become a regular on my weekly #TwitterSmarter chat. He’s a great guy, always quick to share information and advice.
Let’s breakdown my Twitter:
Social Quant has a free 14-day trial that I decided to try out on August 4. The goal is to increase the size and quality of my Twitter following. The benefit from this is aligning my brand on Twitter with people I want to connect with.
Upon sign up, Social Quant asks for 15-25 keywords of the type of connections you are looking to connect with on Twitter. They have their big data and analytics that magically improves your Twitter account.
I’m very impressed with the testimonials on their site from heavy hitters John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing, Josh Parkinson of Post Planner and Andrew Warner of Mixergy.
When I signed up I had 32K followers. Here we are, 59 days later, and I have 35K followers. I’m about to hit 36K. I’m wow’d by this. In this short period of time, my followers grew 10%. It’s quite impressive.
Prior to using Social Quant, I was getting between 150-200 new followers each week. Now I’m getting between 350-400 a week. One week it was 500! These are highly targeted followers. People, organizations and businesses I would have sought out myself.
If you put in good, relevant keywords into Social Quant, out will pop great followers. The beauty of this is it frees me up to focus on engaging with people.
I give Social Quant a high five, thumps up, props, hearts, likes. You know, all the cool ways you show your love on social media platforms.
Give Social Quant a try and let me know what you think.
