Everybody who is doing some kind of business online uses social media to connect and build a relationship with their potential clients. The strategy itself is great because there are millions of people using social media every day. The problems start with earning likes and followers.
A person that just start their journey they have barely only a few followers and likes on their social media and most of it is from friends or family members that also have social media accounts.
The wrong thinking starts with the believe that you need to have thousands of followers and likes to be able to sell something online.
First of all, let me ask you a question. Why do you even want to build huge numbers of likes and followers on social media? If you can’t answer this question then you are in the trouble.
Some people think that the number of followers and likes on my social media accounts builds their credibility. Well at some point yes, but when those followers actually engage with your posts and comments.
Another reason for building followers on social media is to get their attention, build a relationship with them and maybe at some point in the future offer them a product or service, but as you probably know it takes some time to build a relationship with your followers.
– Is it worth to buy social media followers?
– Will that help your credibility?
– If you buy social media followers, can you make sales by them?
The answer to all 3 questions is NO.
you write posts and share your knowledge to engage with your audience. Many social media followers that you can buy are fake. Even if you see an ad saying “Buy social media followers! 100% real accounts!”, yeah, accounts might be real but created by 1 person or a team only to be able to sell this kind of service. Usually, those “real” accounts are not active at all or they are using those accounts only to spam and promote some products or services. So engaging with those followers it’s pretty impossible because they won’t even look at your content.
even if you find a person who can give you real active human followers there is a high possibility that they are not interested in your content at all or they can’t even speak your language.
For example, you want to stand out from the crowd and you want to buy thousands of followers for $5. You get 1000 followers, you get excited and feeling like a rockstar. The problem is that those followers even if they are real 40% comes from Russia, 30% comes from Korea, 20% comes from Slovakia and only 10% comes from UK. If you post on Facebook Page, for example, Facebook won’t show your post to every follower, it will show your posts to some of them but not to all. By seeing the percentage above, what do you think how big is your chance that people from USA or UK will see your posts? Yeah, that’s right, maybe 5 people will see it if you are lucky. Of course, you can always Boost Your Posts and target only people in the USA and the UK, but it’s not a cheap tool.
What about buying followers only from countries that speak your language? In this case, yeah people probably will see your posts if those followers are “Real” but how can you know what they are interested in?
If for example your content is mostly about business, sales, marketing etc. and you get a bunch of followers that are interested in video games than YOU simply will look like a spammer to them.
Even it’s only $5 for 1000 followers you lose your money and you actually slowing down your business by not reaching the right people.
If you are still willing to buy social media followers only for fun and to feel great that you have many followers sure you can, you can, for example, go to Fivver.com and purchase followers there. Just remember that buying social media followers won’t bring you anything except making you feel good that you have a bunch of followers.
Have a great day!
