Before you decide to quickly purchase some fake Twitter followers for your account, ask yourself a question:
‘Do you need 100,000 fake followers who are just there, or do you want 100 authentic followers that generate real engagement?’
Let’s be honest, we all love hacks! No one wishes to voluntarily put up efforts to enhance their Social Media reach and engagement, especially if you could purchase popularity just at the click of a button (and that too, at a penny per follower).
But, if you have to pay for popularity, are you really popular?
A San-Francisco based coffee chain called Pooki’s Mahi was one of the worst hit mid-size business after the fake follower purge initiated by Twitter. Prior to the purge, the Twitter handle of the coffee chain had 596K followers in their account. Just after Twitter was done with it, only 95k followers remained in the account, marking an 84% dip in the followers count.
Why did you think Pooki’s Mahi purchased the fake followers? It’s not even confirmed whether it purchased 84% of its followers. But still, the fake followers were present in their account.
If I say that I don’t want an easy way to increase my follower count, I would be lying. But there is an easy thing to do, and then there is the right thing to do.
First things first, why do people even aspire to buy fake followers in the first place? There are several reasons for that:
- Inflating their followers list so that a ‘Bigger’ number appears on their profile and gives the illusion of popularity.
- No intention to put up the required effort to organically build up their follower base.
- They want to plainly lie about their user-base (but people will eventually find out).
It is certain that a higher follower count will absolutely lead your audience to believe that you are very popular!
But, as soon as they start scrolling down your Twitter feed and see the level of engagement that does not match up with the number of followers in your account, they would think either of the two things:
- Your content is sub-par and no one bothers to engage with it.
- Your Twitter followers are fake.
Both these thoughts paint a fake picture of your popularity and may tremendously hamper your credibility.
Instead of counting the number of followers present in your account, look at these factors:
- How many of your followers constantly engage with your content?
- What is the impact of social media posts on your audience?
- The amount of traffic that your social media posts direct to your website.
Just stop looking at how many followers or fans you have in your account. Focus on creating authentic content that resonates with the audience, which in turn, will generate tremendous organic reach for you.
