5. Engage Authentically
The last thing you want to do is be someone who re-tweets everything and become more of an annoyance than a name people seek to see what you have to say. Re-tweet those things that will matter or are interesting and be selective.
Another great tip is to always respond to any message or Tweet aimed at you, even if it’s just a quick “thanks.” When you have a new follower, mention them and thank them.
Also, never expect anything in return when you post something publicly to recognize someone or something.
“But, I will say, it is the cherry on top when they do notice and respond. As I always like to say, “Just because you aren’t there, doesn’t mean the conversation isn’t happening,” she says. “You have to have the best of intentions when you publicly thank someone. It can’t be because you want to look good on your social networks, or gain a lot of “at-ta boys” it has to come from the heart, and be genuine. It has to be something you’d say the exact same way if no one was listening.”
