• Things to Avoid on Social Media #3 – Buying Followers/ Likes •
If you’ve ever bought or thought of buying Instagram Followers or Instagram Likes, then this post concerns you!
People on Instagram have created a facade that more the followers the more famous or influential you will be.
However, at what cost?
What’s the goal of increasing the followers by buying them?
To trick the brands to give you free stuff?
To try and influence more people who didn’t genuinely follow you in the first place?
Two things happen when people fall to such tricks,
1. The social appeal, a hotshot image when you have this huge number of followers. Not everyone has the content and influence to do so patiently, then why not just buy the number we want, isn’t that so?
2. Tricking brands into providing free merchandise/ visits and collaborating more with these “influencers”.
The brands have now become smart when making such deals; so have the agencies. News flash!
We perform a thorough check-up of every profile before contacting anyone – we know your authenticity – your engagement rate and the number of fake followers.
About that universal appeal, it means NADA. Your audience cares more about the content you’re providing and more than that if you’re authentic or not.
Also, let’s forget the brand deals and the social appeal for a moment, Instagram is coming for you – they are now coming up with updates which will automatically detect fake followers/ likes and delete your accounts.
• There’s only one solution!
Be authentic, be patient, provide value and keep working on your content and you will notice the results in due time!
