Claiming your brand and promoting it is also a significant aspect that needs to be addressed while aiming to increase your Twitter followers. Meaning, you need to stay consistent with your brand. Remember, you need to create your offline real estate business more popular and so should stick to your offline theme.
For instance, you should use the same brand logo, and should adopt the same color theme throughout. You need to offer the users a blend of your traditional and online business, while keeping your sales and business at top. You can even include a profile picture that best describes you and your business. That’s how the popular software engineering firm Matellio does!
