Is your Twitter following lacking engaged Twitter followers?

Are you feeling like your tweets are being sent out into a stream of noise with no real engagement?

Engaged Twitter Following

We have a solution for you! Introducing “Top Users” to any Watchlist you create in Scoreboard Social. That’s right, Scoreboard social can help you grow an active Twitter following full of engaged Twitter followers. I understand you may be having a hard time connecting the dots in how this can help you grow your Twitter following. Don’t worry, we’ll show you how.

Recently we hosted a webinar with Stacy Zapar, and she introduced to us an awesome strategy to grow Twitter followers with an active and engaged audience. She called it the Twitter “clone strategy.” Simply meaning, you go to to the Twitter accounts of your competitors or similar industries and instead of following all the people that follow those accounts, you instead follow the people that are actually engaging with those accounts.

It makes perfect sense. In Stacy’s case, she was adamant that anyone that follows some of the top human resources/recruiting Twitter accounts out there would also enjoy the information she is sharing about HR/recruiting.

Stacy goes to those Twitter accounts and follows people that recently engaged (@replied, retweeted or favorited) with their tweets. While this is a great strategy, Stacy did say it was tedious as she had to expand each and every tweet. But, with her reports she received from Scoreboard Social, she could look at the top 3 tweets section of her PDF and use the smart-link and do this a lot quicker.

We took Stacy’s strategy to a whole new level by creating the Twitter “Top Users” section on your Watchlists. Now, not only do you find the top 40 most engaged users of any profile on your Watchlist within a seven day period, we also added easy 1-click follow functionality into the dashboard.

We tried the new technique out with a few accounts and not only did we grow our profiles with active and engaged users, but we grew them with people that would be highly interested in what we Tweet about. For one of our tests, the Twitter account grew it’s Twitter following by 10% in less than 24 hours. In the other test, the Twitter account grew by 26% in 24 hours. Not to mention, both tests saw huge increases in overall engagement activity too.

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to utilize this new feature:

Step 1 – Create a Watchlist consisting of Twitter accounts whose followers are similar to yours.

Step 2 – Select the 7-day “Top Users” hyperlink under your “My Watchlists” page of that Watchlist while logged into Scoreboard Social.

Step 3 – Be sure you are signed into the Twitter account you would want to start following people from. If you click on any of the most engaged users Twitter accounts, a new pop-up window will open up where you can confirm that you’re signed into the account you want to be signed into.

Step 4 – Start following! Of course, if you really want to make sure you’re following the best of the best, we encourage you to click on the username of the person directly in Scoreboard Social so the pop-up with their Twitter bio appears. But, we also made it easy for you to follow directly from Scoreboard Social.
