How to Get More Followers on Twitter and Facebook

While you can get creative with your Facebook fanpage and work hard to build your Twitter presense, we wanted to be sure you weren’t missing the obvious when it comes to gaining more followers on these social networks.

Give Your Readers an Easy Way to Follow

It can be as simple as adding in social media icons or adding a line at the end of your post that states “Like what you read? Follow us on twitter and like us on facebook for more on this topic!”

But if you want to make it even easier on your readers, you can let them follow you with one click, without even leaving your page.


Add a Facebook Like Box to Your Blog

  • On your fanpage, click “Edit page” and select “update info.”
  • Select “Resources” from the left column.
  • Select “Use social plugins.”
  • Select “Like box.”
  • Customize your setting and then select “get code.”
  • Paste the code into the HTML of your website wherever you would like the button to appear.


Add a Twitter Follow Button to Your Blog

  • Log into twitter.
  • Customize your follow button.
  • Copy and paste the code into the HTML of your website wherever you would like the button to appear.

That’s it! Easy peasy.

    This sounds awesome; especially when my husband just asked me why I didn’t have a “like” button on my blog like FB has. Only problem is, I’m not techie savvy so even following your instructions, which sound simple enough, I still can’t figure it out.
    Maybe someday I’ll have all this stuff down.

    It’s amazing to see how many people work so hard on a post and then make it nearly impossible to share. Just like you wrote in your last post, publishing it is a part of the formula – promotion is really the power. Great reminder. Thanks!
