1. Follow Legitimate, Relevant Accounts
To get followed, you must first be a good follower.

Finding and following accounts of real people and blogs who are relevant to your community is a first essential step to building your own following.

In some cases just doing this will get you followed back by some of these users, especially if your profile is completely filled out and your feed is full of valuable and relevant posts.

However, more importantly, following good, active accounts in your community vertical will give you a base of people with whom to interact.

2. Have Something to Show & Share
You have to have some substance to your profile.

Your best followers will be people who take the time to check out your profile before following you.

3. Be Active & Engaged
Commenting on posts and resharing the posts of others quickly demonstrates that you are not a bot, and that you are present on the network.

Whenever possible, do not just reshare someone else’s post, but add a remark as to why you are sharing it, and tag the original poster.

4. Post Opinions, Data, News & Trends
Whenever you post something that gets widely reshared, you almost always gain new followers.

So pay careful attention to the kinds of social media posts that get those shares.

5. Post Frequently, But Appropriately
You have got to maintain a regular presence, but you also do not want to overdo it.

Pace of gaining new followers tends to rise and fall with the ebb and flow of your posting regularity.

6. Rally Your Subscribers
People who think enough of you and your content to open your emails will probably gladly follow you on social media.

7. Use Hashtags
Always look before you leap with a new hashtag.

Search for it on the network and make sure it is not being used for something you would not want your brand associated with.

8. Get Speaking Gigs & Interviews
The people at conferences and meetups are highly likely to be relevant to your business, and they just got a good taste of your value, so they are highly motivated to follow you on social media.
