Step 1: : Make sure you are on top of your core community
- Go to influencers (/supporters / engaged members) list
- Share the love with your recent influencers – show appreciation and build deeper relationship, and if you are short on time, this is a quick way to acknowledge them
- Make sure you follow all of them
- Send a dm “Happy to follow back!” to at least a couple of them, to let them know, you you started following, otherwise, they miss this
- Go over “unreplied statuses”, see if you can quickly cultivate relationship. Examples: “Thanx for the retweet”, “Happy to engage 🙂 “..
Outcome: you have (0) in all lists counts – this is your indication you took care of your “High-value members” – the people that drive your community
Step 2: Balance your followers/following ratio – improve your “influence perception”
Unfollow all people in “Consider to Unfollow” list.
If you see you had 0 engagements – unfollow right away If you had few engagements – either engage him (which will remove him from the list), or “hide” him (which will also remove him from list, without unfollowing him)
Outcome: Consider to Unfollow list has (0) items. Now you are ready to follow more people
Step 3: Follow the Right People

Step 4: Thank your top new followers

Outcome: you have (0) in New Followers list
Step 5: Connect with likeminded people and potential clients
