I have been trying to work on my Twitter voice a little more and engage people in conversations. When other people see that you interact and do more they are more likely to follow your tweets more closely and really check out what you're saying. I have found that since I've been doing this, I get lots of new followers every day.
Here are 5 ideas on things to tweet:✩Your progress on a new project.
✩Something neat you found outside of Etsy
✩Respond to those that RT your tweets, thank them
✩Ask someone about their new items or comment about their treasuries
✩General ads and attention getting slogans for your shop in general.
Tell them what you've got and why they need it, but also let a little of your personality shine through. Afterall, part of the greatness of buying handmade is that someone making the items cares about them...and is a person, not a machine.
And I can't stress this little tip enough...BRANDING! Make sure that your branding for your Etsy shop and your Twitter account match. It's really important to be consistent so that customers recognize your brand.
✩What have you found that brings you new followers on Twitter?
