    Just wanted to hear some experiences of people who bought followers for their social media. Did it work out for you? Did it lead to monetizing? or is it just not worth it?

    The followers you buy won't be a real followers even though the seller says that is. In my personal experience it can be used just to show off, as you have XXXX of fans on your fanpage. May be people trust/like your page if they see thousands of fans already there.
    Who likes to be seen in a empty room.

    Unless you mass add fans/followers like 1M or so, there is a chance of your fanpage may get deleted. For few thousands i never saw anyone had problem.

    they used to mean shit and attract people but they are so mainstream now they don't mean shit.

    save your money, you can get 50k for $5 on fiverr if you want though

    it looks stupid when you have this many followers but 0 RT's, 0 Faves

    there is a BST selling followers that RT and fave and reply, but its $99 a month

    rather buy a hooker

    i have notice one more thing, i bought 20k followers one month back and it left only 8k now..so the service provider will deliver the order once you are satisfied and leave your feedback over a time period (in my case within a month period) follower will be reduce..
    so take your decision accordingly.

    It's like buying social proof. Same basic thing as when a clickbank vendor pays for reviews etc. If you provide compelling content, more social proof may increase your conversions, if you aren't then it doesn't matter.

    Yes. Depends what you goal is. If you just want to show off, then buying fake followers is good. If you want to have some realistic promotional benefits, than using promotional services that attain them by following other users are a good way to go (but be careful so that you don't spam too much).

    The method you have said is true to attract fans and gain fake followers but no where it is useful for getting business through those fake followers/likes. Our ultimate goal in creating a page is to publish our business services and improve our business right?? Then why to go fake likes/followers . there are many white hat SEO methods just follow them. It will be useful for your business.

    You'd be better saving your money growing your followers organically and buy any number of the twitter programs out that help you mass follow etc.

    Buying followers are literally pointless.
