You may be wondering what follow Friday is all about. It is the day of the week where peeps recommend to their followers who they should follow. It makes Friday one of the best days to be on twitter. In fact, it is the highlight of my week. Here is my guide to achieving more with follow friday:
1. Remember the # symbol
Remember to include #followfriday or #ff or #UKFF (for recommending UK peeps)
2. Make it personal
The best follow Fridays are one’s where someone has taken the time to personally recommend you, rather than a list of great followers
3. Tell people why they should follow them
For example, I think you should follow @raspberrydoodle because she is a fantastic natural artist and a warm genuine person.
4. Do it early
People tend to reciprocate – so by getting in your follow Friday recommendations early in the morning, you will generate more recommendations for you personally
5. Use your blog
A new one this, but use your personal blog to give your #follow Friday recommendations
6. Connect people together
If there are people within your network who you think should be connected – include them in the same follow Friday recommendation
If there is an important twitter user that is not following you. A really good way to get their attention is to give them a #followfriday recommendation. It may work, then again it may not. @atomdriving still hasn’t followed me!
So, here are my follow Friday recommendations:
@raspberrydoodle for being a fantastic artist & a warm genuine person
