Everyone has at least 15 spare minutes per day. How do you spend that time? Idly browsing your phone? Watching a bit of TV? Reading a book? Everyone needs a quick break from time to time, but what if you could be spending that 15 minutes building up a big following on Twitter? Not only is it possible, it’s actually really easy.
Having a large Twitter audience that’s actually engaged in you as a user can be a huge benefit to your career. Being a writer, Twitter is a great place to show off your skills! It’s also a way to make connections and find opportunities that you never knew existed. To get started, you’ll need to start using some online tools like Hootsuite, Buffer, and Manageflitter. These will either help you schedule out your posts or manage your followers incredibly efficiently. Once you’re set up and familiar with these tools you’ll want to start creating lists of the content you consume and intend to share with the world. Break it down into categories so it’s easy to manage!
Next you’ll want to start following all the writers you love, the writers who write in your genre, and any valuable agents. Now take it a step further by going through the list of people that they follow. You’ll find a treasure trove of influencers that you’ll definitely want to connect with. You should also try following the people who are fans of your favorite authors. These are people you want to be fans of yours, too!
Once you have all of this set up you’ll want to set a timer for 15 minutes and get going! There are five tasks you should try to do in three minutes each. Take three minutes to respond to any mentions or retweets, then three minutes to schedule your own tweets, three minutes to engage with influencers, three minutes to schedule tweets from influencers, and three minutes to find new followers. Bam. You’ve just made a huge impact on Twitter in only 15 minutes! Every now and then you should spend some extra time developing a long-term tweet strategy or do some real follower management. But the real bulk of the work can be done so quickly!
Follow this advice and you’ll find your own following!
