Salesforce Influencers: How to Be More Influential on Twitter

twitterA few weeks ago, we introduced you to our list of the Top 50 Salesforce Influencers on Twitter, a compilation of the sharpest, most in-the-know Salesforce experts Tweeting about the company.

This list includes Salesforce admins, developers, architects, MVPs, industry experts, global influencers, bloggers, journalists and developer relations professionals whose mission is to teach others about Salesforce community outreach, thought leadership, developer tips and tricks and breaking news.

Want to be on our next list of Salesforce influencers on Twitter? There’s actually a science to it, and you can improve your Social Authority and grow your Salesforce network on Twitter by following these tips:

  • Include the words “Salesforce” instead of “SFDC” in your Twitter bio, and hashtag it. All of the top influencers use the company name instead of the abbreviated name in their bios.
  • Tweet often. But you don’t have to Tweet 20 times a day; the more you Tweet doesn’t mean you’re more influential. Tweet once to three times per day on one subject to become influential over time.
  • Tweet recently. All of the Twitter influencers on our list had Tweeted within the last two weeks (as of March 31, 2015).
  • Mention influential Twitter handles in your posts. Don’t spam them, but ask relevant questions or send them links to articles they may like.
  • Follow influential people. Follow the influencers on this list. See who the influencers are following. “If you follow them, they (may) follow back” is a good rule of thumb.
  • Follow more influential people. Search for “Salesforce” and “SFDC” in the Twitter search box, and click on their Lists to see lists of Salesforce Tweets and handles you may be interested in and their Favorites to possibly find memorable Salesforce Tweets and topics of interest.
  • Be public. When your Tweets are protected (or your profile is marked as private), everyone can’t see what you’re influencing about.
