 Create a List of Influencers and Authors You Want to Emulate

 Following people and brands on Twitter is the easiest thing in the world to do. You simply click the button that says, Follow. We are not interested in following random, non-targeted accounts, though, so it is important to approach the process in a more finely tuned manner. You should start by making a list of the authors & experts in your field or genre. Who are the big names in your niche? What are the brands and websites that are important to people who would be interested in your books? Who are the most popular authors in your genre & sub-genre?

Why should you make such a list? Because the people who follow the names on your list are exactly the people you want to target for your Twitter following. We recommend using a spreadsheet to keep track of this list. Although it may not look like much now, your list will grow, and you are going to need to have a place to store detailed data!

Search Twitter

Once you have made your list, it is time to go through it from top to bottom to find your chosen influencers on Twitter. Simply type the names of authors, influencers, brands, websites, etc. into the Twitter search bar at the top of the page and take note of the results that are served.

Once you have found the Twitter accounts of the influencers you have identified, enter the URL and the number of followers into your spreadsheet. This ensures that you only have to do this legwork once. Once you have entered this data, you have created a ‘Master Key’ to unlock your future following!

Use Twitter’s ‘Who to Follow’ Function

 When on Twitter, you will notice a box next to your feed that contains recommendations on who to follow. This is a potential goldmine! Twitter’s algorithm has selected these accounts because they are similar to yours as well as the accounts you have already followed. Go ahead and follow these accounts, but make sure you are also entering their data on your spreadsheet so you can take full advantage of them.

Digging Deep

 Once you have identified a number of key accounts, it is time to place them under the microscope. Here is what you should look for:

  • Tweet content that matches the interests of your audience
  • A following from real people and an absence of obvious Bots and Scammers. Beware of eggs!
  • An active presence with a regular recent activity (if the account has not tweeted since a last couple of months, for example, you can go ahead and remove it from your spreadsheet). This process takes some time and effort, but it is all worth it.
