How to Gain Twitter Followers and Become an Industry Expert

So you’ve been using Twitter, quite comfortably now, and are looking to make the jump from passive participator to influential expert. Our first two articles discussed the essential skills and techniques necessary to using Twitter as a business tool. Our final article will tackle the issue of building a formidable base of followers and gaining recognition as the industry expert that you are.

Finding ways to increase followers might be one of the most popular areas of discussion on the Web.

Much of the advice that is proposed in these various guides is accurate and will lead to an increase in your account’s visibility. However, your goal is not to come off as popular and trendy, but knowledgeable and valid: an expert. The followers that propel you to this level are not merely found; they are earned.

It may be because they are not at all involved in the widget industry or it may be because they are not located in current areas (or potential areas) of Dan’s business. When Dan has something to say, it falls on deaf ears because most of his followers are not qualified followers. In other words, Dan might be a bit of an Internet celebrity, but he is no expert.
