10 Ways to Get More Followers

Getting followers to subscribe or follow your blog can sometimes be a little challenging. But by doing just the smallest things can make the biggest impact. Here’s 10 of them:

1. Return favors. Follow people that comment or favorite your posts, especially when they take the time to read articles you’ve written and share a comment with you. It’s one of the keys I use to determine whether someone is a real follower or just trying to get more by using others. 

Also take the opportunity to respond or engage back when possible. The more you reach out, the more folks will return and reciprocate — by following or making comments that is.  You can apply this across all your social networks.

2. Remain active. Follow new people every day even if you can only afford a few minutes on each network. Try doing it on your phone while you’re waiting on someone.

3. Widen your net. People say quality over quantity but that’s not always true. However, wouldn’t you rather have both to maximize your reach. You must continue to build your community — whether online or offline.

4. Make reposting a habit. Make rounds every day to repost at least one new person a day.  This sometimes will give you a fan for life. You can apply this same exact method to grow your following and community on any of your other networks.

5. Pay attention. Keep your eyes open for those who repost you often or share your blog.  Favorite a tweet to let the individual know you see them. At a later point in time, perhaps return the favor as time permits. And how does this help with your following you say…?

The more people see that you appreciate their efforts, they will more likely repost your content whenever online. And the more visible your brand or WordPress posts lands on other pages, the more likely you will generate more organic following.

6. Stay focused. Post relevant and high quality content. People will regularly visit your page to share your posts. When people are excited to pass along your message, it ends up turning out to be additional branding and visibility to your website.

7. Keep networking and engaging. Take it offline. These days, people share their love of food, nature and other passions. For instance, if you are passionate about photography, organize a photo walk. When you take social media offline, people will share photos of you along with your WordPress post to their audience, and in return, you will get more followers. This is a great way to start a conversation online and offline.

8. Showcase your skills. Post something great that shows off your talents. If you are a writer with informative, pertinent content, put it up on WordPress. Same goes for amazing photos. People will share your articles or images and this will give you visibility to more admirers.

9. Find influencers. Reach out to other thought leaders and feature 10 people on your blog. They will be happy to share your content to their readers and this will also grow your readers as well as followers.

1o. Diversify. Do not put all your eggs in one basket. With this last point, apply these ten tips in other social channels where the methods may fit to grow your network. Technology changes very rapidly, so it’s smart to keep a pulse on the current social world.

I hope that these ten points will help you grow your brand. An hour a day focusing on following should help get you a decent amount of followers.

    Definitely needed to read this! Being very new to blogging, I’m still trying to figure out the layout of my site. I feel like it needs to be more accessible and easier to find my post rather than having it all jammed on one page. Any pointers?

    • CassieW 3 years ago

      Kayla, I wish I had some advice. Instead, I’ll offer company 🙂 I am in the same boat. Creativity and design are not my strengths, and they are the first impression. We could exchange feedback on each others’ blogs if you want.

      • Kayla Layton 3 years ago

        That would be awesome! Thank you! Let’s stay in touch!

      • Felicia 3 years ago

        I have ran several blogs (close to 7) with 3 years and I can tell you, you get better with creativity and design with time. The more logos and picture placements I had to do, the better I got

    • Allie Tucker 3 years ago

      Amen!!!

    • Felicia 3 years ago

      Hello! To have more accessible posts, I would create categories for my posts . Then, in the widgets section, add the categories on the sidebar. If you are unsure of how to do this, I am more than happy to help more if you’d like as I have blogged for over 3 years

  2. deliriousmistakessite 3 years ago

    it was really helpful 🙂

    • deliriousmistakessite 3 years ago

      you are very welcome . yeah you do a lot better at such a young age .. keep going .

    • donutsplace 3 years ago

      I am new to this also.
      I don’t do a lot of social stuff, but it sounds like I need to.
      I do enjoy writing. My problem is I like to do too many things, know how to do many things. So…I don’t really know how to make it look in form. Maybe it will look like a jigsaw puzzle. Lol.
      And I am new at some of the hashtags? I do know tags fairly well.
      Used to, I wrote internet sites for people by the old way, the codes, images, etc by hand.
      Now it is easier and if I see a wrong code, I can correct it mostly.
      I write on a phone..so it sucks back at the home page of mine. Maybe I will switch to my computer.
      But my best writing may be at two in the morning. Or three. And I try not to wake him up….

  4. teenstravels 3 years ago

    My question: how to balance good content with a regular uploading schedule?

    • Xylem and Phloem Blog 3 years ago

      I think the best way to ensure good content on your site is to post about things you are passionate about and that inspire you. It’s amazing what the things we love and are inspired by bring out the best in us. This may be in writing, photography and so forth.
      What I do to upload regularly is to write ideas down when I get a lightbulb moment.
      The all comee rushing at the same time and when they do I write them all down and then post one at a time.
      I hope this helps.

    • Eclectra 3 years ago

      I proofread my comment, but auto-correct kicked me as I posted. It sounds way awkward, and I cannot figure out to edit.
      I have “duties” where I must “sit & watch” and it is OK to read during them. I am a teacher and I do parking lot duty. I must park my car in the entrance & watch to make sure no cars come into the lot.
      Bahaha
      Thanks for your “wise” words!!!!

  71. authengrace 3 years ago

    These really are some good tips; I feel like I can always learn something more about blogging and what it takes to gain readers of my content. This may sound odd but I am still quite shy in letting those around me even know that I have a blog; I guess it just shows that I, as the writer, have to be confident in what I write and believe in what I write in or else it may be reflected in where I am at in terms of engagement.

    Have a nice day!

  75. mysweetshenaniganhome 2 years ago

    Thank you for these tips; I was researching tips on blogging and interestingly I came across this tip that focusing on actual quality content only encompasses a small part while the rest is all about outreach & promotion. I guess a part that each blogger must find is a balance of the two for their particular blog.
