The 5 best Twitter growth tools you need to be utilizing
In today’s day and age, social media is a phrase that almost everyone knows, and almost everyone has an account somewhere. However, this wasn’t always the case. The very first social media platforms were very basic and allowed for bulletin board messaging, communication through email and online chatting in real-time. Friendster, a social media platform which was very popular in 2001, allow for very basic social networking, and it wasn’t until Myspace launched in 2003, with the addition of uploading photos, did social media really begin blowing up.
One of the biggest and most popular social media platforms of recent history is Twitter, its userbase of nearly 22% of US adults. If you were to categorize Twitter you would call it a microblogging site.
Twitter quickly became a platform for businesses to interact organically with their customer base, and those that joined early were quick to reap the benefits. That isn’t to say that it is not possible to grow a brand now, but it’s just difficult, as everyone is trying to do the same.
So, in this article we’re going to cover 5 of the best Twitter growth tools to grow your account, whether you’re a managing an account for your business or you just want to increase your followers of your personal account.
Twesocial is a Twitter growth marketing service which launched in 2016. Many growth services promise an increase in followers, and usually that means that they sell Twitter followers from bot accounts.
This isn’t the case with TweSocial.
But first let’s look at why these bot followers are a problem. These accounts never interact with your content in any meaningful way, and even if you have bought 1,000 bot accounts, your account will not gain any activity and the Twitter algorithm is an engagement based one. This means you will
This is however, where Twesocial really separates itself from the competition. Firstly they don’t use bots as mentioned, you gain real followers. But secondly the service uses what you already have by optimizing hashtags, targeting other people you follow with usernames, focuses on specific locations such as cities and uses AI targeting to optimize your account, in order to organically grow your account.
The beauty of Twesocial is that they will take the reins and manage the promotion of your account without you needing to do anything further. It truly is a hands-off service. The cheapest service starts at $15 a week and increases with the more features you select.
Don’t just take our word for it, they were the number 1 recommendation in Influencive’s article on buying active Twitter followers.
Tweeteev is very similar to Twesocial, but it’s always good to provide a few options as Twesocial might not be right for you and Tweeteev is or vice versa.
Tweeteev is also a Twitter growth marketing service, they pride themselves on being simple and straightforward. This isn’t to say that they won’t deliver results, they promise to effortlessly and organically grow your follower base.
The only thing that is required from you to get started is fill out a questionnaire with questions related to the audience you are trying to reach, such as gender, location, age, interests and many more. All of this information allows Tweeteev to effectively target your desired audience, which is key – you don’t want people interested in dogs following you if you’re a B2B marketing company.
Tweeteev also provides you with an account manager who will maintain your promotional activity, and in addition to this, there is a scheduling feature which you can set and forget about. Their most expensive package being $25, which is a bargain when you think about how much agencies cost.
Task Ant is currently a tool used for Instagram; however, they will be releasing a version for Twitter very soon, which uses the same system and algorithms needed to grow your Twitter account.
We don’t want to share too much about their Twitter service until they’re ready to release it to the public, but we were lucky enough to use their beta release. We can say that it really helped to take our Twitter growth to the next level, they are set to release in Q1 2021, so keep an eye out for their Twitter tool.
Their established Instagram service essentially finds the best hashtags to use, and provides over 100 suggestions for every search. More than that, the service also provides analytics about the hashtags, such as how many times it's been used, if it's popular and more.
Another great feature is that you are able to save hashtag sets, and the easily copy-paste them, without needing to enter each individually. Users receive unlimited hashtag sets, unlimited accounts and analytics that will help you to grow your account by seeing how each hashtag affects your discoverability and reach.
These days, working online can make life very simple, but it can also make things very complicated. You might have to send emails, write blog posts, manage social messages and so on, and you are probably not using only one application to do that, which means a lot of alt-tabbing. If you are looking for more of a hands-on approach, and something to make your life a little easier, then you may want to try out CoSchedule.
CoSchedule is a platform that enables you to execute, plan and organize anything related to content marketing. The biggest benefit of using this platform for Twitter users is that if you have written a blog post for WordPress for example, you are able to publish to both simultaneously.
In addition to this, content marketing teams will benefit too from the fact that all of the files, documents and emails for every project is stored in one place.
This means there is no need to rely on every individual member of the team to store all of the abovementioned things effectively, and sorting through old emails, looking for a single document is no longer necessary.
If you are looking for something that is a little more complicated, somewhat hands-on and extremely powerful, then perhaps Hootsuite is for you. Hootsuite was founded in 2008 by Ryan Holmes, Dario Meli, David Tedman, and is a social media management platform. If you use more than one social media platform, then you will be delighted to know that Hootsuite provides management for social media platforms such as Twitter, WordPress, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube, among many others.
The biggest benefit of this social media management platform is the fact that you are able to add more than one account, which is a great feature for those multi-account users. If you use Twitter to manage customer service, then Hootsuite will definitely make it easier by allowing different messages to reach different team members without manual input, but also offers the ability to be managed by an administrator.
In addition to this, Hootsuite provides users with weekly reports related to statistics about your site, such as the most popular links, who the top referrers are, how many clicks you receive per day, the locations of the people clicking and anything related to the growth of your channel or account.
If you are an extremely busy person, which many people are, and you don’t have enough time during the day to continuously write engaging, thoughtful tweets, then you should consider trying out Buffer.
Buffer is a Twitter app that allows users to send out tweets on a schedule. One of the worst things for followers is to be bombarded with multiple tweets, and rightly so, since this is known as spam. In addition to Twitter, the app also provides support for basically every social media platform, such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
The greatest benefit of using is this app is the fact that you can take a few hours out of one day to write about 40 tweets, then schedule them to be sent out twice a day for 20 days. This will allow you to potentially gain new followers passively, without taking time out of your day. Pricing for the app starts at $0 per month for 1 user, 3 social media channels and 10 scheduled posts, and works its way up to $99 per month for 6 users, 25 social media channels and 2,000 posts.
In today’s day and age of constantly needing to produce content to stay relevant, and the need to manage social media channels, it can be quite a daunting task. Thankfully, there are Twitter growth marketing services such as Tweesocial and Tweeteev that allow you to organically grow your follower base by giving you the opportunity to only focus on creating your content.
If you need help with hashtags, the upcoming Task Ant service, which currently assists Instagram users, will find the best, most popular hashtags, provide analytics, and help your account to grow by helping you to effectively use hashtags to target your desired audience.
