Yes, well let’s begin again, another one of these, I have 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 will allow you to the expert, but there is more, if you sign away your hard earned money today, i have an e-book special for you, yes just for you, an E-Book which i didn’t write anyway,but I’ll pretend its mine, and all it can cost you is $89.00.”
I become emails such as this every single day, offering free product that I can sell or hand out as my own, I become E-Books, money making ideas and lots of materials that I can re-brand, that’s not being a specialist, 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, plus they fool you to definitely part with your money.
Well don’t be enticed by it, because I’m going to tell you the best way to fake it, and then you too could possibly be the instant social media marketing expert, you already know, the one who can’t obtain a job selling property so they choose this easy money.
OK this is the way you are doing it, On MySpace and Facebook, you find as numerous people with similar names or interests as you then send them friend requests, a lot will decline but you would be surprised at the amount that really come back and accept you, this way you build up your following very quickly, they never do anything together with you but hey it builds your numbers. Next Twitter, there are a variety 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. That can be done exactly the same with Twitter when you use MySpace and Facebook, that is follow many people and I’ll guarantee a fair number will follow you back, and also you be aware of dead giveaway? glance at the follower number near the following number, which they can’t hide.
I am aware of one expert that actually sends out his flyers with “We have 9000 followers on twitter” so I should be good, well one thing he doesn’t inform you is he follows over 10,500. If you want to have serious with this particular, have a look at the Twitter accounts with large followings, 99% of them are well known actors, celebrities or business people, just what exactly does that let you know.
We have always taken the tack that to develop a social media following you should earn it, build it on providing good quality information and advice and create the “Expert” tag through experience and generate your followers organically not by underhand means and faking it.
There are so many “snake oil” sales individuals you will need to hold on to your wallet.
So the next time you get a flyer or an invite, stop and do some research first, the web and Google are a great place to learn information on your expert. The amount of articles they have had published?, where do they really hxafvz on Google?, What recommendations have they got and what companies have they dealt with in designing and integrating a social media marketing strategy. For instance, I’ve just done a search on social networking experts, and this person I’m suggesting about doesn’t even rank at the top 20 pages.
