Need a basic social media strategy involving Twitter? Here’s one: (1) create an account, (2) tweet, (3) get followers, (4) reap the benefits … The only problem is that it’s much easier said than done.
First of all, people are using Twitter for a variety of different things. Some of us simply want to connect with our real-life friends, let them know what’s going on, and what we’ve been up to.
Others want to make new friends, reach out to people (either just for fun, or for some business purposes).
Finally, there’s the last group of people, those who join Twitter because they have no other choice … we like to call them celebrities.
So unless you’re in the first group or in the last group, chances are that you want to attract some new followers, or simply let people know what you’re about, so they can make the decision whether to follow you or not.
There’s a small number of ways how you can do that:
- Post relevant (niche) tweets about a narrow range of topics.
- Get a quality avatar (profile picture).
- Craft a nice and attractive bio.
Let’s face it, everyone reads your bio before they follow you. Even your friends. The bio is your chance to say a couple of words about yourself and make it interesting enough to convince people to click the follow button.
There are several paths you can take while crafting your bio. In this post I’m going to give you 32 examples of great bios for your inspiration. Actually, I’m not going to do this here, you’ll have to go to my guest post at machoarts.com to get it:
You might be wondering what’s the point of all this, and why should you be interested in other people’s bios, especially celebrities, right?
The fact is that celebrities are great for inspiration. Very often they have teams of people standing behind their social media profiles, so by paying attention to what they’re doing, you’re not actually paying attention to a single person, you’re paying attention to a whole group of professionals.
I invite you to read the post, and when you’re back don’t forget to let me know what’s your favorite bio from this list and why. Finally, I urge you to review your current Twitter bio and look for possible improvements you can make … there’s always something.
