    I'm running my FollowLiker but I'm not getting many followers. I'm putting up good quality photos, using correct hashtags, I'm following the correct profiles that fit my genre but it's a slow process. Perhaps if I had 800 followers bought, it would help drive the follow backs in the beginning? What are your thoughts? Or should I just eek out my 20 followers a day?

    Because when you have say 1k fakes and you're only getting 10-30 likes per photo it shows.

    You can also purchase automatic likes on last post along with 1k fake followers to make it look more real. it doesn't have to be 1k either, say you purchase 500 followers, you can also purchase the auto likes at like 50-200 likes and it'll look pretty legit that your followers are active.

    What would be the point of having fake followers. They provide no real interaction. I personally use TweetUp. Depending on the campaign I run I may follow users in my niche based on keywords. If there is a popular user in my niche I will follow their followers. Social media is all about egos and if a user follows you back then they are stroking theirs, till later when you allow the software to unfollow all of them. So in this process you gain laser niche targeted followers, that are real and care about what you tweet about. You also don't look like an idiot with 1,000 followers with profiles from India or another 3rd world country.

    There are better ways to invest your money for the long term rather than buying 1,000 fake followers for $5 that will most likely drop. (Don't worry people over-deliver, L hoe freaking L)

    Good point, I've never bought fake followers but I'm not gaining 150-200 followers a day like some of these other newbies. It's been a couple weeks and I have 277 followers total. I imagine perhaps some people see I don't have many followers so they don't follow back? So it was just a thought. I've done all the things you mentioned (except the tweetUp) but I do follow popular users, I use the correct keywords, etc.. still very few followers.

    Very true, I see people with 80K followers and they only have 100 likes on their photos. To me that looks real desperate. I guess this would be the same thing.. I just thought doing this may help push more people to follow in the beginning which I would later delete in a couple weeks.

    It is very true you could do that. Might as well be 1k due to pricing. Not sure if you can send less than $0.99 on PayPal. 1k fakes is like $1-3. Get 300+ likes per photo while you're at it. On top of that lets add some comments which are the hefty portion. Total for around 10 posts will be like $35-50 on which media provider you go with. From this point drop $100-200 on a few quality shouts after the followers, likes, and comments have arrived and you should be good to go.

    It can be done - $.

    I am currently running FL and doing the follow/unfollow method. I am going to unfollow to 0 once I hit 5k followers. Currently at 2200 in a week. Following 350-450 per day, and will unfollow the same amount at that time.

    When I start unfollowing I will get those comments about unfollowing. I will delete them and keep trucking on. After 10k followers I will drop $200 on some shouts and see what happens.

    Just a game to me and it is time to play.

    Good strategy. Where can I get some good hefty shouts for that price range?

    Deep in your mind
    It's a good strategy to buy 1k followers, really.
    Don't listen to those who say fake followers are worthless. They lend credibility to your account. Just buy 1k fake followers, buy around 300 likes for each photo, and you'll notice an immediate boost in the real people that follow you.

    Think of it this way: would you follow an account with 300 followers or follow an account with 1.3k followers?

    In the beginning definitely YES... Because people will rather follow account with 500 fake user (they don't know they are fake) than acc with 2 followers...

    Def. buy them in the beginning. If I was looking for a group on FB under my interest and I see one that has 200 followers and one that has 20,000, I'm going to join the 20k one.

    Honestly, I would never buy fake followers. Easiest method is the follow/unfollow tactic even if you remove them later you'll still have people that will stick around.

    Depends on your niche. Good luck trying to get a big page to respond to you! I wouldn't aim for anything over 200k that doesn't have some type of contact listed in bio. See if you can work a bulk deal out and incorporate -$5 off for a referral.

    If you find anything worthy please PM me, I am attempting to put together a spreadsheet that fellow users could utilize if they choose to go the paid route.
