Today I’m going to talk about why you should not buy followers.
I talk a lot in my training for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. About how it is important to have the right kind of followers. I talk about the vanity metrics versus the sanity metrics. You want to make sure that the people who follow you are engaging with your account and that they enjoy the content you are putting out.
This is by no means a guide on how to get fake followers. It is important that you understand how people do it. When I say “don’t buy followers”, some people think I mean don’t run an ad on Facebook to get more likes on your page. This is not the case. Facebook Ads don’t attract fake followers. There are a few ways you can get fake followers. First, you can do an aggressive follow campaign on Twitter or Instagram. This is where you follow lots of accounts in the hope they will follow you back and then you unfollow them all.
Or you can just throw money at it. There are businesses that are completely based on getting fake followers. Take Instagram, for example. There is a site called Buzzoid where you can buy followers, likes and views. There are packages to suit all budgets. Once you get the fake followers you surely will want to fake likes so it looks like you have engagement, right?
If you don’t continue to buy fake likes and fake followers it’s gonna show on your stats! People will start to question the legitimacy of your statistics or you will go broke continuing to support your fake habit.
What you should concentrate on.
You need to leave aside the vanity metrics and concentrate on the sanity.
Vanity numbers aren’t important. What is important:
It’s all well and good spending money buying followers but if that’s not translating into sales or leads it’s just a waste of your time and money!
So, in conclusion, don’t #fakeit
Being famous on instagram is like being rich in monopoly.
