We’ve heard of some companies that are pushing their agencies and PR teams to up the Facebook likes and Twitter follower numbers. Bigger is better, they say. Quantity over quality.
But wouldn’t you rather have an “organically grown” set of prospective customers, industry influencers, bloggers and members of the mainstream media as followers? Real people who care, who want to read your information and – if it’s any good – share the content with their audiences?
If the answer is no (or if the boss is still demanding big numbers now) head straight to eBay, search for “Twitter followers” and you’ll find all sorts of deals. Caution: this violates Twitter’s terms of service so there’s a chance you could be discovered and banned, but if the boss wants likes and follows, you can deliver big time – in just days.
