    Hey guys I just wanted to try to give anything I can to you wonderful people as a lot of advice has helped me in many ways on this forum. So I was very interested in vine as it is a new platform and can be built up very fast and drive traffic/people to your other sites/social media as well as build your brand! I want to explain to you all the methods I used and the steps towards where I am now sitting at 20,000 real followers/fans.

    So being someone who used 15+ networks I wanted to see if I could use this one and build it up. I want to first say that if you mix some blackhat methods AND you have some sort of entertaining content this is what is going to make you win the hardest in this socialmedia game. For me what I do is I beatbox and just used vine to make 6 second clips of me doing dubstep with my mouth. You don't HAVE to have content though to use these methods, it just helps a lot!

    Alright so I start using vine.. make a few vines to start off with them not getting too much response obviously cause of 0 followers and me not knowing the platform well. I start to use tags that are top tracked and it turns out people actually search tags on vine. Things like "howto" "selfie" "magic" "music" "comedy" etc. I also added tags "f4f" "follow" and that brings in people as well. From this I started to get a few people dropping in on my vine and following me just from the use of hashtags. This let me know that hashtags are very important to use on vine and I just attatch as many relevant ones as possible.

    Now the method that most of you guys know from other social networks. Is mass follow than unfollowing people that aren't following you back. Tools like social bro for twitter or any instagram bot can do this. So I started to get my feet wet with spam following people to get people to follow back.

    The key point here that made me excited was that vine has no follow limits unlike instagram (7500) tumblr/facebook (5000). I looked around at some profiles and some had followed up to 120,000 people and had about 30k followers. I then set on doing something similar and was going to just mass follow people that might follow me back.

    The TRICK though is to follow people that have a super high follow ratio. (Meaning they follow a lot more people then follow them) This means there is a much better chance of them following you back. The easiest way to do this is go to someone who is following 10x more then folowing. Example: "LuckyNewb" (A vine user) He follows over 170k and only has 30k following him. What this means is that this dude spam followed as many as he could and the people that followed him back 30/170 are ones willing to actually do f4f. SOOO what you do is you open up his follower list by clicking on it and just start rapid fire following everyone you can untill your fingers break on his list. I did this for an hour a day and followed over 30k people. This got me a following of 20k in under a month.

    NOW though they limit followers to about 100-200 an hour so you have to do it in moderation. This is still a good tactic and you should use it to build your vine following. I hope some of these methods will work for you guys, because it is really easy to just build up following on this platform and you should do it if you have any ideas for content for 6 second video. :)

    A bot would make it easier but if you go to someones follow list you can just spend your freetime to spam follow 200 ish people a whenever you are bored

    I have a Vine account with over 15,000 (real) followers from this same method. The problem with this is that the majority of these followers are mass-following thousands of other viners, and are rarely checking their own timeline (or homepage feed) because it is likely jam-packed with garbage from the 10K they follow. They prefer to just check the popular page.
    When I post or revine a great vine, I get about 30 to 100 likes and revines in 24 hours. For 15K followers, that sucks.
    I stopped following at 5K but the followers haven't stopped pouring in. And, at 5K, I even stopped checking my own homepage feed. I just go straight to the 'Explore' and click 'Popular'. Maybe I need to be more active on there... I am hardly ever on. Probably because I gave up hope in my so called followers, lol. Good luck, buddy!

    That ratio is actually pretty good, it's not that the ratio of yours sucks. It's just that vine is garbage (to benefit from) in general, but doing great anyway - keep it up!

    I would have to say that my only concern with this is how much interaction your getting. Are you actually getting likes and comments? Or is it only followers.
