I’ve been asked this question before and so I thought I’d share you a secret. How to increase your traffic on your blog. One of the things you should do first is increase your connection on Linkedin or Twitter. Or whatever social media you would prefer. But I’m going to choose Linkedin and Twitter because that’s what I’ve learned from the video course I’ve taken before.
I didn’t think I could do it. It says…
How to get 100 followers on Twitter in 24-hours?
I thought the author was insane! Yeah. Right. At the time I only had 24 followers on Twitter. I’ve had Twitter for as long as I have Facebook. When did Facebook started? Early 2000. Right. I had both of them but didn’t really care much about Twitter until I started blogging. To me, I was more of a Facebook girl. After I graduated from Livejournal, I switched to Facebook. Then added Twitter…but it was neglected for a long time and so I didn’t know how to use this till later.
And so this is how I did it on Twitter. On Twitter, you can search whatever niche you are interested in. For instance: #design #followme #followyouback #bible. Whatever you insert after that # sign it will give you selections of people to add in your Twitter.
I believe I added about 300 of them in 24-hours. That was a lot of work for me. I thought yeah…are these people really going to follow me back? But hey…lo and behold within 24 hours I have like over 100 followers!!! I was flabbergasted. I thought, this author knows what he’s talking about. He’s right. I could get 100 followers in 24-hours!
Never ever buy followers on Twitter! These are fake followers!
They have things advertise like “Buy 10,000 followers for $10” or something. Never ever buy anything like this because what you are seeing are “fake” followers generated by some bot. Even if you see it advertise on my ads down below. That ad below is my sponsor and it comes out automatic from them, I’m not advertising them and I’m against it. However, I cannot control the “related results” on my ads. So please, please…NEVER BUY FOLLOWERS!!!
Then the next lesson I’ve learned was…How to get 500+ Linkedin connections in 3 days!
I thought again the author was crazy! Sure, I got 100 followers in Twitter within 24 hours. And now Linkedin? *shakes head* Again, I doubted the author but I just went ahead and did it. Didn’t know what I was doing then. I’ve registered in Linkedin about a few years ago when I was taking the Respiratory Therapy program. I don’t know how long ago that was. But when I registered it was inactive. And I wasn’t active in it till I started blogging. Again, Linkedin was just like Twitter. Both of these social media were useless to me because who am I going to contact here? Other than what I was doing on Facebook was just playing my games.
…yeah I confess! I was addicted playing games on Facebook. I was so downhearted when the Russians took over Livejournal. And I didn’t like the way the CEO have sold us to the Russians. And so I was so sick of blogging or what they called it then “live journal.”
I tried MySpace too but that one didn’t do too well because MS was tooooo slow…
So Facebook was a perfect candidate for a substitute on my social media activities. Why was I hooked on games on Facebook? Well, I confess at the time I was very depressed about my profession. I just couldn’t believe that I was going back to school again…not to continue the profession I was doing. BUT…taking a different major!!! I didn’t really like working in a hospital and somehow I felt like I really didn’t belong there. Going to work then was like going to a cemetery.
Seriously. Nursing is not for me. I dreaded going to work knowing who is the next supervisor who’s going to yell at us and how to deal with prejudism at work. But I digress…Before I go further into deep into this depressing story, let’s go back to Linkedin.
This is how I did it on Linkedin. On Linkedin, I joined a whole bunch of community that is on my niche and related to my business. And I search all of the people who are business men and women in Fresno, CA. You know in Linkedin, they don’t allow you to add anybody unless you know their email address. And so how did I end up adding having over 500+ of them?
Well…all I remembered was I added one person from the Fresno, California area. Then all of a sudden, Linkedin gave me bizillon of professional people and business entrepreneurs from Fresno to add on my list. Without email address identification. And so I just kept adding them until I can add no more. I kept doing that in 1-7 days! Well, I didn’t get over 500+ in 3 days but in 7 days I’ve had over 500+ of them. And after I reached over 1000+ of them, people just kept inviting me to add them. Again, I was flabbergasted and I was wrong to misjudge the author. After all, he’s not crazy! It is real.
And that’s how I did it. Now, you can do the same! Know your niche and what business you want to get in your own city and state or country. It was very easy to accomplish. People are always eager to add you back!
…and when you increased your followers and connections you can mingle with these people. The more you share their posts, the more you are expose to increasing your traffic in your blog!
