    i was wondering does buying gigs offering facebook and twitter promotions work? does it bring in some profit from the few amounts they say they send to? thanks.

    I haven't tried them for it yet but what I have tried is using mturk to get really cheap retweets and likes. The retweets have pulled some traffic for me.

    Quick answer? No. Stay away from it.

    Long answer, I used to offer this service since I've built an army of followers over the years and quite honestly not only the traffic the client got was not really targeted (aka junk...) but it tended to get overused since you get paid anyways for the service, not per lead. I guess I'm not the only one that thought about it in these terms. ;-)

    Facebook status updates work better than tweets

    i am sure that most of them has been spammed as hell...

    traffic? of course you get traffic from tweets, but you are lucky if you get some sales...

    Well ive made a few hundred from tweets and facebook page status updates so yea of course it works just dont be surprised if it doesn't work all the time, but for an investment of $5 you cant really go wrong :)
