A few weeks back in November, I noticed my twitter followers were slipping down below the 50,000 follower mark. 50,000 was a goal I’d set myself and wanted to attain. For the record it took me exactly 500 days to hit the 50,000 mark, and a fair bit of effort went into the process so I didn’t want to neglect my account and have it slip too far down.
Now fluctuating up or down on a daily basis is a normal event. People drop off Twitter, get suspended, or just lose interest in whatever your topic happens to be. If you’re growing your business however it’s a good idea to track your growth in order to ensure it moves up more than it falls down.
Both have taught me so much about blogging and marketing and have motivated me to continually hit new targets such as this Twitter one. So thanks to both of you!
Follower counts for each of us on November 12th 2011. As you can see I had to grow by almost 4,000 to catch up to John, and 2222 to reach Pat. Unfortunately John who hasn’t done any promotion with his Twitter account in ages took that exact moment to shift into overdrive adding over 3,000 followers in the next 48 hours, and several thousand more since! Looks like I’ve got my work cut out trying to catch up to this online legend!
Stats – Nov, 12, 2011

Now I’ve committed myself to using all my Twitter tricks, and pushing my follower count as high as I can before the end of 2011. It’s my hope that by using my secret weapon (in case you haven’t figured it out that’s you!) J to propel me well over the 55,000 mark by months end.
