Should I Buy Twitter Followers?

By August 15, 2012 Twitter Tips

Buy Twitter FollowersGo to eBay and search for “Twitter Followers.” You will see options that provide you with 40,000 Twitter followers for under $100.

Just think of how good and important you or your company will look. Your Klout score will go through the roof. Should you do this? Should you buy Twitter followers?

It depends. What is the goal of your Twitter account? Is it to look as popular as possible? Do you want to be able to say to your client or CEO that the Twitter account has gone through the roof? If so, then this is a good and cheap option for you.

Is your goal to engage with your audience and elicit responses? If that is your goal, 40,000 non-relevant and paid-for Twitter followers will not click your links, interact with you, or retweet your content. Only interested parties will do that and interested parties take a long time to connect to on Twitter. Real connections follow you on Twitter when you provide valuable content. Real connections follow you or your company on Twitter when you provide what you say you will provide in your summary statement.

My suggestion is this – if you want to impress people for the short term, purchase as many Twitter followers as you can. If you hope to engage with your Twitter followers, don’t buy them, give them a reason to follow you.

    While you won’t be talking with them face to face, using Twitter or Facebook to find people who may be interested in your product can be very lucrative for your business. I was in the drive through line at ‘my’ coffee spot. Your channel partners will see right through you if you start splashing your posts with promotional information.
