Hello, this is Paul from Wright Computing LLC and today I am going to show you how to get more twitter followers that are targeted to your company, using twitter lists.

Ok so this is my twitter account @wrightcomputing and what we are going to do is try and find some people.  So for this instance I want to target people in my local area.  I live in Sarasota, so what I am going to do is do a “find people” search and look for people who live in Sarasota.   So here you can see a list of people who live in Sarasota.  What we can do is follow all the people that live in Sarasota and now what you also find is that if you go into one of the bigger places like city of Sarasota or something big in your area then when you look at their list of followers, you find that typically people from Sarasota are going to follow an account like City of Sarasota so you can go in and have a look at their followers and see that they have over 2000 followers.  As you look through you can see that we have Sarasota, Anna Marie Island, which is just outside Sarasota.  As you look down you can see that you have Sarasota, Sarasota, Sarasota and you can see that you have loads of people, probably at least fifty per cent of these followers are from Sarasota.  So that’s one thousand followers.

What you can also do is look at their listings.  So here you can see that different people have put this account into their own personal lists.  So @Ianblacksrq has got a list called SRQ, which is short for Sarasota.  He has got a list of three hundred and twenty nine people that he has targeted as living in Sarasota.  If you look down here is another one, Sarasota – twenty four people, Sarasota – 4 people.  Well that’s not such a big one!  Looking through the lists you will find that you get lots like this.  So lets have a look at this list here.

Now see who they are following.  Now looking through here you will find that you have lots and lots of twitter accounts of people who live in Sarasota. You can follow a lot of these accounts.  I would not follow more then a couple of hundred accounts because you will end up getting your account blocked.  But, go through and maybe follow 100 of them one day, then come back and see how many of them have followed you back.  Doing this method you will increase your targeted traffic to your site or product from the area that you have specified.

That’s all from me today from Wright Computing.  If you would like to see more then please visit our website.  Just do a search for Wright Computing.   Thank you very much.  Goodbye.
