The #BizFlutter Twitter Challengeby : Diana Berryman
Members of our newly formed BizFlutter networking group will be embarking on our first real challenge, beginning on the 1st of November. It’s a simple challenge which will last for one month and the aim is to grow your Twitter following.
Step one: make sure I have added you to my Bizflutter list on Twitter, it’s here so you can have a look… https://twitter.com/soc1albutterfly/lists/biz-flutter
Step two: from the 1st of November follow 10 new people a day who you would like to have follow you back.
Step three: Tweet (in as many tweets as you like) that you have followed these people, for example I plan to do 2 tweets per day with 5 people on each….
” Today I followed @person @person @person @person @person for the #BizFlutter challenge”
You can word them how you like and include @Biz_Flutter (my other Twitter account) or @soc1albutterfly to your tweets or not, it’s entirely up to you. If anyone asks what it’s about just direct them to the Facebook group where they can ask questions.
By the end of the month you will have followed 300 new people and at least half of them will have followed you back (unless you’re following Justin Bieber and the like, you don’t have much chance there although it might be worth a go 😉 ). There is every chance you will have gained much more followers than that too, when I did this a few years ago I got over 1k in a month but there is a lot more noise on Twitter these days.
Step four: make sure you use #BizFlutter in each tweet so I can retweet all your tweets, if you could all retweet each other too that would be great!
If you can’t find the time to follow 10 new people each day and tweet about it, it doesn’t matter but the more involved you get the greater your chance of success in this challenge!
Good luck and let me know how you got on.
