More followers? Just ask! Follow me! sandy_carter

So I was reading this weekend — with my broken leg, there is not a lot to do! I learned some interesting things about how to drive more from Twitter — quite simple actually — just ask.

In an analysis by Twitter, they found that 4 core ways to get great results from your Tweets are:

1 Ask for a download. Explicitly asking people to download accompanied by a link increases URL clicks by an average of 13%.

2 Ask for a Retweet. Explicitly asking people to retweet increases retweets by an average of 311%.

3 Ask for a follow. Explicitly asking for a follow increases followers by an average of 258%.

4 Ask for a reply. Explicitly asking for a reply increased replies by an average of 334%

So would you guys please follow me on Twitter at sandy_carter and subscribe to my BLOG! Pretty Please!

  2. All you have to do is ask!
