This is my first post, and even though I took the time to try and read all of the Terms of Service Agreement thoroughly, if this post is out of place in anyway.. please feel free to remove it. Okay, so I've been dabbling with SEO and marketing in social media on and off for some time. My problem "in the past" has been the lack of dedication and/or belief that I could actually be successful in such a venture. But over the course of that time, I have researched and researched, all the while, furthering my knowledge and gaining the tools to be able to become successful. I could go on and on about my 3-point plan, but I'm unsure if it's within the rules. In short, I'm currently working on the creation of 5,000 accounts. Though for a while I was set back with the emails, I've jumped that obstacle and moved forward. Now I'm in the actual creation stage and moving along nicely. Now here are my questions.. What general advice do you have for making legitimate looking profiles? Obviously, having multiple pictures to accompany is one of the foremost factors, no? I have enough pics to cover about 1,000 profiles (which is okay since as far as creation goes, I'm working on 100 at a time anyways). Cover photos are important, correct? And I take the extra time to write up the "about me", and post random PI. I cross-friended my first 10 so as to build up legitimate looking conversation. And so far, this has proven to do the trick. I want as many legitimate friends as possible on each account, so I figure I'll only cross-friend 10 friends on each one of my profiles.. leaving me with 4,980 unique when complete. Generally speaking, is there anything else I can be doing that will give that boost? In 3 days since initially starting (not including the weeks of generating names, pics, emails) I'm sitting on 100 profiles, with the first 50 having 400-500 friends, and the latter averaging between 75-250. I want to focus on 100 at a time till I get over 1000 each, and then move on from there. The End game? 5,000 profiles with 5,000 friends with a slightly less than 25m reach. All comments and feedback appreciated. Even be critical if you like. I've accepted a 3-6 month time table before initiating my means to turn a profit. It's all about patience and building it from the ground up. Also, keep in mind this is just 1 part to my 3 point strategy. I also multi-task the other two, but they belong in other parts of the forum. Thanks again for your time guys and glad to be aboard!
