Here’s a question I recently got from somebody that wished to remain anonymous:
“I’m a teen comic in Dallas/Ft. Worth and am currently trying to build connections. One of those ways is through Twitter. Any advice on how to get more followers?”
1. You don’t need more followers, you need better followers.
It’s easy to get caught up obsessing about the sheer number of Twitter followers you have, but what’s really more important is the quality of the followers you have. It’s much better to have 100 true followers that will help you achieve your goals (whatever those may be), than it is to have 1,000 random followers that won’t ever buy tickets to your shows, book you gigs, or really care about what you have to say.
