Forgive me if this has been posted a million times. I looked around and couldn't find a lot beyond bots and buying follows. My specific question is: How do you go about starting a brand new Social Media account (FB, twitter...etc) and start building a following? My concern is namely FB, because you really don't have a way of drawing friends in other than straight out asking to be added. I do not want to buy friends or use any type of bot; I would like to figure out how to gain quality followers/friends (Maybe even targeted towards the chosen niche) that can can be effectively monetized in the long run. I am not looking fora quick fix by any means as quality is the utmost importance to me at this point. If there is a specific thread that already answers this then I apologize and only ask if you would provide a link. Perhaps there is a decent ebook that covers this? Thank you guys in advance! Sorry for wall of text. *EDIT: I should point out that that I would like to know the right way for both individual blog type accounts and affiliate driven business type of accounts.
