Yes, well here we go again, another one of those, I’ve got a list of over “9,000? Twitter followers so I’m a social media expert marketing forms has hit my desk today. Come along it says, “to my affiliate marketing driven roadshow and in 4 hours I’ll make you the expert, but there is more, if you sign away your hard earned money right now, i have an e-book special for you, yes just for you, an E-Book which i didn’t write by the way,but I’ll pretend its mine, and all it can cost you is $89.00.”
I get emails similar to this every day, offering free product that I can sell or hand out as my own, I recieve E-Books, income generating ideas and a lot of materials i can re-brand, that’s not an expert, that’s a faker.
These so named experts all have massive quantities of followers on social media marketing sites like MySpace and Facebook and of course Twitter, and they fool one to part together with your money.
Well don’t fall for it, because I’m likely to let you know how to fake it, and you too could possibly be the instant social networking expert, you already know, the one who can’t get a job selling property so they opt for this easy money.
OK this is the way one does it, On MySpace and Facebook, you discover as much individuals with similar names or interests while you and then send them friend requests, a lot will decline but you would be astonished at the quantity that really return and accept you, like that you develop your following quickly, they never do just about anything with you but hey it builds your numbers. Next Twitter, there are numerous of programs that will show you how to construct big follower numbers and it’s funny but it’s nearly always round the 9000 mark. You can do exactly the same with Twitter as you use MySpace and Facebook, which is follow many people and I’ll guarantee you a fair number will follow you back, and you also understand the dead giveaway? look at the follower number near the following number, that they can’t hide.
I am aware of one expert that really sends out his flyers with “I have 9000 followers on twitter” and so i has to be good, well one thing he doesn’t tell you is he follows over 10,500. If you truly desire to obtain serious using this, take a look at the Twitter accounts with large followings, 99% turn out to be well known actors, celebrities or business owners, just what exactly does that inform you.
We have always taken the tack that to construct a social networking following you ought to earn it, build it on providing high quality information and advice and make the “Expert” tag through experience and generate your followers organically not by underhand means and faking it.
There are plenty of “snake oil” sales people out there you will need to cling on for your wallet.
So the next occasion you get a flyer or perhaps an invite, stop and do some research first, the net and Google are a fantastic place to find out information about your expert. The amount of articles have they had published?, where do they really hxafvz on Google?, What recommendations do they have and what companies they have worked with in designing and integrating a social media marketing strategy. As an example, I’ve just done searching on social media marketing experts, and also this person I’m suggesting about doesn’t even rank at the top 20 pages.
