Is buying twitter posts worth trying?
Hi Lance, thanks for the question!
Social Media is about socialize, engage and build genuine relationship. Unless you know what you buy and who those followers are, otherwise you will buy group of people who are not interested in your tweets, products or services. You need to build a highly targeted market. This is what internet about. If you use internet to blast messages with knowing your market, you actually doing the same thing similar to old world marketers.
And who knows some of the followers are actually bot rather than real human!
Numbers of twitter followers is not important, but numbers of twitter followers who are converted to become your buyers is important.
Hope this helps you!
Where to find those targeted people? Good question. My way to do it is do it manually.
1st - You start following people
2nd - People you start following you, but you don't need to accept anyone, you have to check their profile and decide if you want to follow
You can direct your Facebook Fans to your Twitter account to be your Twitter followers. You can put a "Follow Me" button on your website and ask your website visitors to follow you on your website, etc.
With these methods, your market is more targeted then buying Twitter followers. Again, unless you know what you buy.
If 1000 posts need USD5.00 (as mentioned by Lance), it is actually very cheap. Which means per lead you only need to pay for USD0.005. While the average cost per click for Google Adwords is USD0.20.
Keep posting quality content e.g funny and interesting videos, useful tips and tricks to use something, engaging your customers with useful conversation. Bear in mind that, this human world, human needs to socialize.
