    Hey guys, long time lurker and decided to post here to further motivate myself in pursuing social networking. I want to pursue twitter but I have a question or two that people answer- but vaguely. So I decided to make this thread to ask a couple straight forward questions to you experienced folk out there.

    If any of my questions have been answered multiple times in the forums please let me know so I can remove them. I hate being 'that guy'

    1. Is FollowLiker good enough? Can I use the program to actually build a twitter account that can grow for my own niche? I am well aware of the FollowLiker thread, but my internet senses keep reminding me that if it's too good to be true- it probably is.

    2. Assuming I use some program to gain followers on a fresh account, won't people not even want to follow my account anyways? I won't have a high tweet count and people notice these things. How many tweets containing content of my niche should I have on my account before I decide to interact with users?

    3. Assuming I become successful in making an interactive account, clickbank and things like that don't convert well on Twitter- or so I've heard. So would the best way to monetize is to make retweet trade agreements with other accounts? How do I even make money with that? They would pay me to retweet them? How can I trust that? And what if they pull their money out of my PayPal after the "trade"?

    - All these questions have been on my mind and I would appreciate it if someone could answer them for me. It makes the project more real to me and an assurance that I can actually make money with it.

    Thanks ahead of time for helping me out

    1. Followliker CAN grow accounts. I've tested this and grew a trash account to 10,000 followers. Here's the issue. The time it takes and also the energy and "wear and tear" you put on your computer make it not even worth it if you're trying to make one legitimate, high quality account.
    2. With that being said, FL is a great way to move from 0-1000 followers and get your account started. Don't be fooled by the 20k and 30k accounts with 40 or 50 retweets... 1,000 active followers will get you LOTS of activity.
    3. Assuming you become sucessful which is difficult and takes a long time, the best way to monetize is to put your email in your bio and let people come to you. I have had multiple app developers email me offering $50 for one 24 hour retweet when I normally charge $10-$20. Monetizing is tricky but by the time you build your account you'll get the hang of it.
    My adivce now:
    Work on getting QUALITY followers. I manually built my account and it worked out great. Followliker is a great time saver though. It's up to you. Hope I was able to help.

    You have helped me gain insight, I'm going to buy followliker and pursue my goal. But what about the account I want to grow from scratch. would anyone follow an account with 10 tweets and no followers?
    Thanks

    1. You don't need to have a bot to gain followers I gained 61k in the last 3 months without any bot!
    2. yes you will not have much follow back when you start, but as soon as your accounts get to the level of 500-1k followers people will start following you back :)
    3. you need to test that yourself, what is working for you may not work for anther one and most people won't tell you anyway what they are doing, by the time you become successful you will figure that out for yourself.

    Edit: for you new account that has 10 tweets why not add more?? add like 400 nice tweets then start following people you will be surprised how much people liked your tweets and followed you back!!

    You can either buy some fake followers just to give it some "popular look" to speed things up a little bit or you just can just start it from scratch following/unfollow/favorite and you'll still gain followers no matter what

    Is it really so hard for some people to get followers?

    I started a Pinterest Account about 4 weeks ago, followed the first 10 days 600 people everyday, from there on i occasionally follow people (average 20/day).

    Current Pinterest Stats:

    Followers: 3203
    Follwing: 7964

    Gonna Start unfollowing 300 People a day from tomorrow to give the profile more authority.

    Created a Twitter Account Yesterday, followed 759 People (still not sure if i made a mistake with so much following right after creation).

    Current Twitter Stats

    Followers:
    166
    Following: 759

    I post between 4-30 Tweets/Pins a day (catchy picture, just google keyword + tumblr and set filter to high res pictures)

    Its my first time creating bigger social network profiles, so maybe its just the niche i took (cannabis)?

    Regards

    PS: all manually but i think about getting a vps and twitter/pinterest bots to do just the following/unfollowing (any suggestion, will a imcaro script do the job since i still will post the pictures/videos manually?)

    If you are going to be growing an account via Botting I'd suggest scraping regular peoples profiles opposed to large accounts. I say this, because at the end of the day large accounts are spam laden and small accounts are where the REAL Users are ie* REAL Engagement.

    I follow 1000 new users every single day and get 200-500 followbacks. Twitter is a place for Quantity posting BTW. People are always clicking pics, so make sure your MEME Game is on point.

    Interesting, I'll do that. Thanks for your input.

    I might as well just go in raw dog lol, thank you though for your input.

    It is hard because for some of us, this is our first IM venture. Promising numbers though, good luck to you.

    Sound advice, thank you. I will go with scraping normal people. More organic.
