    Hi all
    I've decided to start my journey selling likes and followers for online social media platforms. I've done this on eBay for the past few months, the most popular sale was 15000 followers for £13. I got around 1-3 orders per day making a profit of around £6 each sale. Every time I had a sale, I would buy the gig from fivverr who would send it to their account.

    I'm going to start by making a website then making an Instagram and Facebook to advertise. I feel most the sites that sell these things are American so I may have more success with the U.K. Market.

    Any tips? Good idea?

    Hello,

    It depends A LOT on what social media platform do you sell likes and followers. For example, if you sell social signals for FB, IG and TWITTER, go on that networks first. Try to build a brand, keep your customers happy so that they will return. Remember, 80% of revenue is made by 20% of clients.

    My personal advice for you would be starting on social media, be consintent, take orders, publish content there, then aim for a website and start doing SEO. Keep in mind that are a lot of people who do this - keep your prices competitive.

    Best regards,

    Your plan is to advertise a service selling Social Media followers and likes on a Social Media platform? I'm not sure how long that method would prove to be successful for you as all the major social networks do not allow this and will ban you when they find you.

    Also, what happened to you selling it on eBay? Were your eBay and PayPal accounts suspending for doing this?

    No I'm going to build a website then advertise the website on social media platforms. Create a Facebook and Instagram account like people's pictures comments etc let them know of the service then lead them to a website where they can puschase. No my eBay and PayPal are still there and I'm still selling them on eBay, just think would get more sales from a website and advertising as currently don't do any advertising but still seem to make £6-£18 profit a day, not expecting hundreds but it will hopefully start me somewhere

    That's a journey that I want to follow. I'm into this business too, not full time, but I make some extra money. unfortunately, I never got deep into this market, but I know that if you dedicated you can have a stable and profitable business.

    In my case, I just have one website to sell just one service, and I promote it mostly on facebook groups. Also, I bought the followers, views and other services to resell here on BHW. You can find some amazing SM Panes with very low costs. Just search here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/social-media.200/

    One great thread that can help you is this one: http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/free-method-fiverr-website-instant-and-passive-income.647436/
    There is other guides and journeys that helped me a lot, if I find it I will post here.

    Hope you achieve your goals :)

    This was one of my first methods of making money online. This is how I did it:

    Set up a Shopify store with a logo, cool graphics (Instagram logos etc)
    Set up different products/packages - 2k, 5k, 10k followers, or Followers + Likes
    Put the URL in a main account on Instagram and called the account something like "Insta Famous", and sent thousands of followers to that account to make it look legit.
    Then had about 5 accounts that looked like real people posting hundreds of comments per day (using FollowLiker), directing people to my main account.
    People would click the URL and order.

    I made about $2000 over a couple of months. But I charged WAY too much for the followers ($60 for 10K) - people didn't seem to mind that they were fake though, because I had a lot of repeat orders.

    I also had a disclaimer on my site saying that the followers wouldn't interact with your posts - it's up to you if you want to do that though.

    If you end up making a few bucks from it you may want to consider looking into SEO - although I imagine the competition is probably tough these days. I managed to rank a term a few years back for "buy (popular social media site) (thing they wanted)" at the time everything was also in-house (I created bots for everything - no outsourcing) - so my prices were 1/2 the competition. Needless to say that is a pretty winning combination. The search traffic back then was probably a lot smaller than it is today but with such a targeted term it converted very well. Long story short - don't rule out SEO if you think there is a possibility to rank for your keywords because it can make you a lot of money. If the competition is tough - consider investing into SEO but only if you think you can rank in 1-3 spot.
