If you are new to Twitter or have been using the micro blog site for a while, getting new followers is probably one of your priorities. The following are my top 7 things to do to increase your followers base for your personal account

1. Have a clear personal profile and back ground image. Tweeps need to know who they are talking to

2. Have a clear bio. State why are you on Twitter, what are the topics you are interested in. I also prefer if you use one or two hash tags in the bio

3. Identify the influential tweeps you would like to follow you back by creating a public list, give it a catchy name. Start adding Tweeps to the list. Most likely they will follow you back

4. Create an automated direct message when you have new followers. This will create more engagement. You can use tools such as JustUnfollow or socialoomph to create your DM

5. Use relevant and trending hash tags when creating your message. But do not use more than 2 hash tags in 1 Tweet. Using many hash tags is not easy on the eyes

6. Autoschedule your tweets using tools such as HootSuite, this is a great way to tweet during a time when most of your followers are online. At the end you want your message to reach the most possible Tweeps

7. Engage with your followers or Tweeps you would like to follow you back. Mention and RT them. A little appreciation will bring you a lot of engagement. Thank your followers and Retweeters, send them a thank you message.
