Yes, well here we go again, another one of the, I’ve got a listing of over “9,000? Twitter followers so I’m a social networking expert marketing forms has hit my desk today. Come along it says, “to my affiliate marketing driven roadshow and in 4 hours I’ll allow you to the expert, but there is more, if you sign away your hard earned cash today, i actually have an e-book special for you, yes just for you, an E-Book that I didn’t write anyway,but I will pretend its mine, and all it can cost you is $89.00.”
I get emails such as this every single day, offering free product which i can sell or offer as my own, personal, I become E-Books, money making ideas and lots of materials that I can re-brand, that’s not being a professional, that’s a faker.
These what are known as experts all have massive quantities of followers on social media marketing sites like MySpace and Facebook and of course Twitter, plus they fool one to part along with your money.
Well don’t fall for it, because I’m likely to let you know how to fake it, and then you too could be the instant social media marketing expert, you understand, the one who can’t get yourself a job selling property so that they choose this easy money.
OK this is the way one does it, On MySpace and Facebook, you discover as many people who have similar names or interests as you then send them friend requests, a whole lot will decline but you would be surprised at the number which actually come back and accept you, that way you build-up your following quickly, they never do just about anything together with you but hey it builds your numbers. Next Twitter, there are a number of programs that will show you how to build big follower numbers and it’s funny but it’s nearly always across the 9000 mark. You can do the same with Twitter as you do with MySpace and Facebook, that is certainly follow large numbers of people and I’ll guarantee a fair number will follow you back, and you also understand the dead giveaway? glance at the follower number next to the following number, they can’t hide.
I am aware of one expert that really sends out his flyers with “We have 9000 followers on twitter” therefore i has to be good, well one thing he doesn’t inform you is he follows over 10,500. If you truly desire to obtain serious with this, have a look at the Twitter accounts with large followings, 99% seem to be well-known actors, celebrities or business people, so what does that inform you.
We have always taken the tack that to build a social networking following you need to earn it, construct it on providing top quality information and advice and produce the “Expert” tag through experience and generate your followers organically not by underhand means and faking it.
There are so many “snake oil” sales people you really need to hold on for your wallet.
So the next occasion you receive a flyer or perhaps an invite, stop and do some research first, the web and Google are a fantastic place to learn information about your expert. The number of articles they have had published?, where do they really hxafvz on Google?, What recommendations do they have and what companies they have dealt with in designing and integrating a social networking strategy. For example, I’ve just done a search on social media marketing experts, and also this person I’m suggesting about doesn’t even rank on top 20 pages.
