It’s only when people are attracted to read a post that they can likely engage (like, comment, share) with the post. This helps to boost the visibility of the post, thereby getting more impressions. So in your posts, try to always add pictures or videos to them.

4. Post Varieties of Contents

If your specific niche is not doing too well, you can try not to limit yourself only in that area, you can explore different topics. This will bring more people of various interests to your profile.

5. Use Hash-tags (#) on Your Posts

Just like on Instagram, Tiktok, and other social media platforms; HashTags (#) are used to find related posts about a particular topic. For example: as at the time of writing this post, “Benz” was one of the trending hashtags in my location, so if you create any post relating to Benz and add a hashtag as #benz, when people search for Benz on Twitter, your  post will be part of those that will show up. This will greatly help to increase your visibility and impressions.

5. Create Posts on Trending Topics

Another great strategy to getting high impressions on X, is creating posts around trending topics. Trending topics means that many people are currently talking about that topic, and many will be searching for the topic as well. 

From the example in number 5 above, if I check Twitter’s trend and see that Benz is trending very well in my location, I might just decide to create many topics/posts talking about Benz. As many people will be searching for the topic “Benz” to see what people are talking about, my posts will be part of those making impressions.

6. Engage in Other People’s Posts

To increase your visibility, you need to engage in other people’s posts. You want other people to like, comment and share your posts, right? Then you need to do the same to others first.This will help to create bonds with other users to always do the same to your posts.

Another idea here is to always comment on influencers posts. Look out to big influencers on X that have huge followers, always follow up their posts bumper-to-bumper. Always leave reasonable comments on their posts. By doing so, a lot of people reading comments on the posts will definitely be seeing your comments, thereby making impressions. Some that love your comments may even decide to follow you.


Getting 5 million impressions in 3 months is one of the major requirements for Twitter ad revenue share. To make up to 5 million impressions in 3 months, you need at least 60 impressions everyday for the 3 months. To achieve this, you need a whole lot of serious effort. Most importantly, you need to post regularly, use hashtags, create contents on trending topics, and engage with other people’s posts, especially big influencers.
