So now you have invested a considerable amount of time in following many people on Twitter and also getting more followers. But did you know that it’s also possible to lose followers on this social network? If you’re using the ‘auto direct message’, you may need to give that some second thoughts now. The AutoDM is one of the most popular tools used by internet marketers on Twitter. If you’re using it properly, then you won’t have any problems. Abusing this or any tool can have serious consequences.
Twitter allows individuals to send personal messages to their friends (followers) so that they are always connected. But some people think that social networks like Twitter are still too impersonal. You must keep in mind the main purpose of being on Twitter. Twitter is for socializing with other people, and not just an advertising billboard. If you are always advertising your business, many of your followers will choose to ‘unfollow’ you.
Phrasing your tweets properly can ensure success. By posting appropriately phrased tweets, you can generate good communication. The links that you provide may get an increase in the click rates. With increased conversation, you have an opportunity to develop better relationships with your followers.
How can you lose followers in Twitter?
Here are a couple of examples of AutoDM’s:
• Hey, checkout my blogs
• Why don’t you buy my product? Here’s my link
• Get this product now
If you send tweets like these to followers who hardly know you, they will all almost immediately unfollow you. Sending capitalized tweets is also a turn-off. It would be much better to stick with more personal messages. Your followers will appreciate it if you give them more attention and consideration.
Just try putting yourself in the shoes of your followers. How would you feel if someone sends you a tweet telling you to do something like for instance – ‘check out my products’. If you hardly know someone, you can’t give your trust easily, let alone your cash, and so you will not check out the products. Check the settings of your AutoDM so that you can sto[ sending those impersonal messages to your followers.
If you’re running an online business, it’s not good for you to lose followers. It can have a terrible effect on your business and of course, your sales. Start changing your impersonal messages and create more personal messages. After you’ve made initial conbtact and spent time getting to know people, you can now consider using an AutoDM. This tool is very helpful but only if you know how to use it properly. Too much of anything is not good and that also applies to the AutoDM.
Twitter is for socialization. You need to learn how to communicate with others effectively before they will trust you. You should try to make friends and develop trust long before making a sale. The same is generally true in real life.
If you want your followers to treat you well, you should also treat them accordingly. Being personal in all your dealings in Twitter can ensure success – whether you’re into marketing or not. Even if your primary aim is solely to make friends, you should send personal messages and not impersonal ones.
Losing Twitter followers is really easy but maintaining a huge list of followers is not a simple task. You must invest time and effort to gain more friends and prospects. I suggest that you check out your AutoDM now and see what kind of messages you’re sending out.
If you need to make changes, do it now before it’s too late. Good luck in using Twitter for making friends and for promoting your business.
