Yes, well let’s begin again, another one of those, 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’s more, if you sign away your hard earned cash right now, i actually have an e-book special for you, yes only for you, an E-Book i didn’t write anyway,but I will pretend its mine, and all it will cost you is $89.00.”
I recieve emails like this each day, offering free product i can sell or hand out as my own, I get E-Books, profitable ideas and a lot of materials which i can re-brand, that’s not being an expert, that’s a faker.
These so called experts all have massive numbers of followers on social media marketing sites like MySpace and Facebook and naturally Twitter, and they fool one to part along with your money.
Well don’t be enticed by it, because I’m going to inform you the best way to fake it, and then you too could possibly be the instant social media marketing expert, you know, the one who can’t get yourself a job selling property so that they go for this easy money.
OK this is the way one does it, On MySpace and Facebook, you find as numerous people with similar names or interests while you then send them friend requests, a whole lot will decline but you would be amazed at the number that really return and accept you, that way you develop your following quickly, they never do anything whatsoever along with you but hey it builds your numbers. Next Twitter, there are a variety of programs that will show you how to construct big follower numbers and it’s funny but it’s nearly always around the 9000 mark. You can do the identical with Twitter as you use MySpace and Facebook, that is certainly follow a lot of people and I’ll guarantee you a fair number follows you back, and also you know the dead giveaway? look at the follower number next to the following number, which they can’t hide.
I know of one expert that really sends out his flyers with “We have 9000 followers on twitter” so I has to be good, well one thing he doesn’t tell you is he follows over 10,500. If you really want 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 entrepreneurs, so what does that let you know.
I have always taken the tack that to develop a social networking following you need to earn it, assemble it on providing top 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 individuals you should hang on to your wallet.
So the next occasion you get a flyer or an invite, stop and perform some research first, the internet and Google are a fantastic place to find out info on your expert. The number of articles have they had published?, where do they really hxafvz on Google?, What recommendations are they using and what companies they have worked with in designing and integrating a social media marketing strategy. As an example, I’ve just done a search on social media marketing experts, and this person I’m suggesting about doesn’t even rank on top 20 pages.
