Buying followers on Twitter can be sticky business, if done improperly. The practice is meant to build traction and clear the path to organic growth and attracting followers by establishing credibility. However, if done improperly it could be a wasted effort. To make the investment worthwhile a purchaser must be tactful. Here are some pitfalls to avoid when buying followers:
Neglecting to tweet
Sure having a lot of followers has become the main focus of individuals and organizations trying to grow their brand, but your Twitter profile should be more than just a generic prop for the company’s logo. In order to jump start your organic growth, before purchasing followers, you must invest time in your profile and tweet thoughtfully at least once a day. Neglecting to tweet can repel any interest that may exist in your profile.
Buying random followers
Because of the importance of Twitter and followers to gaining credibility on the internet, the market is flooded with vendors selling followers. Many of these sellers, though, are indiscriminate in the followers they collect and sell to purchasers. This indifference can lead to a wasted investment. If the followers you have purchased have no interest in your goods or services, then their followers likely won’t either and you will have wasted funds on followers outside of your target market. When buying followers on Twitter, it is important to find sellers that can aggregate your target audience and provide your with viable leads.
These are two of the biggest mistakes to avoid when buying Twitter followers. If done correctly, a Twitter account can boast a mixture of purchased and organic followers numbering in the hundreds of thousands.
