So I made a bet…
I had an idea. A bright one – shiny and sparkly and oh so cheeky.
I decided that the best thing to do would be NOTHING.
That is correct. My bright idea was to sit back and see how many new Twitter followers I would gain NATURALLY – no actual promotion or pleading or paying attention on my end.
I figured that since I was posting on FB and updated my LinkedIn page that some people would drift this way organically – no effort, chemicals or preservatives added.
The result was 14 new Followers on Twitter in 60 days.
Let’s Count Together – 1, 2, 3 … 14.
Wow. My bright idea was really quite dim.
So what happened?
It’s research time!
Was I too lax? boring? Annoying?
Did people UN-follow me? If so, why? What did I do wrong?
Flip side – what did I do RIGHT that convinced 14 NEW PEOPLE to choose to follow my silly little tweets?
Please feel free to COMMENT, as I’m open to suggestions and thoughts.
