It’s not enough to just have many followers, but it’s also important to know how to engage them so your content will add value to their online experience.
If you’re on twitter, engaging 1000 twitter followers doesn’t have to be that hard. You could either engage your own followers, or make interaction with other users on another person’s account with many followers.
The more you interact and provide something worthwhile to read, others will start to check out your account and sooner or later, you might have 1000 twitter followers yourself.
It may take a while to gain that many followers, but if you spend most of your time online and on twitter, it’s not that hard to retweet great tweets and reply to other users’ tweets. It’s fun to engage in a conversation on twitter and often, mutual fondness is formed even though you have never meet the person.
As much as you can spend a lot of time to interact with other users, you can also make sure you engage with the existing followers on your account. This creates a good impression on you as an active user.
