What happened

So a weekend of not adding followers, what has happened? Well the numbers have gone down from 330 to 308. What are the reasons for that and what can be done about it. A couple of suggestion:

·         People not interested in our tweets

·         People unfollowing our tweets as we are not following them

So how do we resolve this?

Well if followers are uninterested then fine, I don’t blame them. We only want to follow good tweets and content as well. All we can do is continue to educate and inform as best we can, it well not be right for everyone.

With regards to followers unfollowing us due to the fact that we are not following them, we have  two lessons learnt here:


Auto Followers

1) Set auto follow for new followers, we have now changed our setting on social oomph so that we auto follow. Social oomph is a great tool and for only a few pounds we can upgrade our licence so that we can auto respond and auto follow..



2) Just as followers are unfolowing us, we are doing the same to people we follow and do not follow us back. We have gone to www.justunfollow.com where you can identify and clear 25 followers as day, if you tweet a message on there behalf this increase to 50 and if you pay a few pounds a year then you can unfollow an unlimited amount..


Why Unfollow?

Unfollowing people may seem a bit trivial but there are also several reasons for this

·         To clear out the clutter of following too many people

·         To ensure that there is a more even ratio of followers to following, a possible SEO factor

·         We can refollow these guys messages may come back into their inbox that we are following them and this time it may be right for them to follow.
