How about 1.000 new followers for $87?
An Australian company is selling Twitter follower packages
Twitter is swarming with high profile people nowadays – celebrities, companies, well known brands, but even your front door neighbour and their dog wants a piece of the pie, isn’t it?
The Twitter crowd called ‘tweeple’ consists mostly of the average Joe’s and Jane’s wanting to become the next success story. This is true for companies, alike. Big, small, known, unknown, no matter their size or exposure, they all want to grab as big a ‘virtual real estate’ as they could on Twitter, the hottest online property at the moment.
Therefore comes the need to measure this and it is the simplest way to do so by comparing the number of followers each of them have.
Kinda like ‘size does matter’, right? Let’s put it on the table, folks, for everybody to see: my… followers list is bigger!
But how to get more followers, exactly? What to do to grow your followers list substantially? How to get more followers FAST ?
Best natural way is to interact with other tweeple, write interesting ‘tweets’ all day long, ask questions and answer those asked by others.
In other words: network.
In time, more and more followers will gather around you, simply because they will find you interesting and worth following.
Is that easy? NO!
Is it FAST? NO!
It takes too long for some and it also implies you really have something to say — and the time to do so.
One other way is to start following others, almost blindly, yourself, hoping that for the sake of good ‘twetiquette’ they will, in exchange, follow you back.
Is this easy? YES!
Is it FAST? NO!
So, somebody thought… if there’s an itch, we can scratch it.
There is an Australian company that has recently launched a new service guaranteeing followers, for a small fee of course.
Their packages start from $87 for 1,000 followers and they move up to the 100,000 followers deluxe package. Each of them come also with a delivery deadline (i.e. 7 days for starting package), which is very handy for business minded people, trying to
assemble a marketing plan.
At first sight, some may say that this is somewhat ‘un-ethical’ or at least objectionable — assigning a ‘value to a follower, as in $.10 each?
But the mentioned company uses a special system that finds and matches users to its customers by searching for common interests. When they find a Twitter user sharing the same interests as their customer, they are asked if they wish to follow that particular customer’s account; seeing it this way, definitely, it’s not spam.
Others see this as a marketing scheme that is trying to subvert a popular tool (Twitter) into a self-serving device… Well, I couldn’t disagree more — nobody forces the followers to stay ‘listed’ and furthermore, they may unfollow immediately any account that looks like spamming them.
It’s like saying that radio stations selling advertisements are submining the free use of radio waves with their comercials? Man… shut off the radio if you don’t like it!
We are all witnessing Twitter growing with light-speed and there is yet no monetizing plan revealed until now. I bet they have something in mind, but for now… it’s good to see the growth of third-party providers, building their own services around Twitter. Many people may benefit from that.
This new service claims to have already more than 150 customers that had bought followers and had another 80-90 campaigns about to roll out. Their CEO, Mr. Leon Hill, said they have a broad range of clients including educational organisations, companies and marketing firms.
“A woman who runs yoga classes is one of our clients,” he said. “So are some religious organisations including one man that just wants to get the word out about God.”
Take my advice… if you’re in a hurry:
