So I made a bet…
If you’ve read my blog, you know what is coming. It’s time for a Twitter count!
A few months ago, I decided time spent coming up with ways to enthrall my virtual followers with stories of my day and my ideas is just too much responsibility. My elaborate plan to gain Twitter followers consisted of this one mantra – DO NOTHING.
Thus, this number represents my total lack of effort at actually forming a Twitter “presence”.
Here’s how it’s going:
In six months – that’s right – SIX MONTHS – I have gained 43 Followers.
That is Pretty. Darn. Good. For doing NOTHING.
Now, some would say – wow, that really SUCKS! That is sad, sad, SAD. An average of 7.1 new people per month? How can this be good? Shouldn’t you be trying to reach thousands?
Here’s why. People HAVE found my blog and chosen to hit that Follow button based upon content alone. No gimmicks. No effort, chemicals or preservatives added.
My idea was to sit back and see how many new Twitter followers I would gain NATURALLY.
Therefore – SUCCESS!
It’s time to focus on what I did RIGHT that convinced 43 NEW PEOPLE to choose to follow my silly little tweets.
And to do that, I’m giving myself a homework assignment. I will look up 10 articles on how to naturally increase my Twitter presence, and share my findings. Wish me luck!
