How I Blew a Guy's Mind and Created a Super Fan on Twitter

How I Blew a Guy’s Mind and Created a Super Fan on Twitter

Can something as simple as saying thank you on Twitter really make a measurable difference and help you stand out? It seems funny to think that the lessons our mother's taught us when we were young would be so relevant today for building a loyal following of brand advocates on Twitter. What's even more shocking is how so few people actually do it. I admit that I haven't always been consistently good with my manners on Twitter either.

However, I have begun to make an extra effort to say thank you to my followers on Twitter, and it has made a substantial difference in my success on the platform. Since I started saying thank you more, all of my metrics are steadily increasing month over month, including the number of mentions I'm getting.

That means more people are tweeting out my articles, retweeting, and mentioning me in their tweets. A few months ago, a new follower of mine tweeted out one of my Inc. articles. I saw the tweet and replied back with, "Thank you for the tweet. Have a great rest of your week!"

Well, that simple action led to him sending me a direct message thanking me for thanking him. He went on to say that he had been tweeting influencer articles for a long time, and nobody had ever thanked him for it. (While calling me an influencer might be a bit much, I certainly didn't correct him.)

Since then he has tweeted out every single article I've written on Inc., sometimes more than once.
