Should you pay for social followers?
Not a week goes past I don’t see this happening on social media or experience it happening to our own accounts. Just the other day I was talking to a client about this, they asked about getting more numbers on their social pages. My opinion is that it’s better for your business to collect genuine followers that are interested in your products and services. This is a slower way of getting followers but it is way better. With Genuine followers you’ll experience better interaction and stand a better chance that they will buy from or hire you.
Over the past five years there has been many options to boost social page followers. For example one website had users advertising more followers for Facebook and Instagram for as little as $5. This option was so dodgy that eventually the social sites figured them out and the accounts that had used them got shut down.
Nowadays there are sites that offer subscription based services or pay as you go options to use very smart technology to track what you like and gain followers based on your #hashtags etc. Whilst this does do what it says it will it isn’t accurate enough and you’ll end up with poor quality followers.
Featured below is a post done by a very smart digital marketing and social media expert Tod Maffin. We’ve followed Tod for a few years now and value his posts. This one he talks about why you should probably stay clear of these such sites.
