I love the internet but at the same time there are some things I hate. One of the things I hate the most is “FAKE PEOPLE” let me explain. There are websites you can go to that will offer you more subscribers or more views on your websites or content wherever it my be located.
This is something that has been a real problem and Google is taking action without you even knowing it. You can be paying $5.00 or $10.00 to gain a few thousand instant followers for your website or Youtube Channel but what you don’t know is that you are doing more harm than good to your online score and that will eventually put you out of business.
Something I found out a while back kind of disturbed me so I wanted to share it all with the readers of my blog. I admire hard work and people who pay the price in life. I love hearing about how people overcame adversity and eventually got their goals achieved. What I don’t like is what I am about to tell you.
I found out that a business guru who teaches other people about how to make it in business is also an owner of a business that is very shady. The business I am talking about is the business of paid follower website services. Whether you go onto Fiverr.com or some other place, when you buy instant followers or subscribers, you are slowly burying your business because search engines will come after you.
I guess people today want all the short cuts in life huh? I couldn’t believe when I found out that a business guru who teaches entrepreneurship is involved with some of these type of websites. Basically you have people send you money and if they send you a certain dollar amount, then you send them a certain number of instant “Likes” or “Followers“. You can add instant views to your content in seconds if you understand how to do it right. I have seen this tested and how it all works and I can tell you that it’s very easy to do!
The problem with this is they will tell you that these are “Real Human Followers” but think this for a second ok…….who in their right mind would sign up to have their personal account automatically follow someone who they don’t know? The answers is….”They Wouldn’t” so when these companies tell you that “These Are Real People” just turn around and run for safety because no one can promise you thousands of followers at the flip of a switch.
I own a Twitch.TV Channel and it is called Competition Sports. On Twitch.TV some people have been buying subscribers from those websites I was just telling you about. Twitch.TV has now banned those people, taken their sites down and told them that they can’t be a part of Sponsorship. Sponsorship is where you can make money with Twitch.TV so to have them take that away from you is kind of a big deal. I first found out about this stuff on Twitch and so I investigated it a bit more and found out that a lot of companies offer this type of “Garbage” service to people.
I was in shock when I found out a business Guru was into this type of thing. Doesn’t he know that these people could lose their business and have Google kill off their Affinity Score? I guess he doesn’t care as long as the money is pouring in huh? That to me is not the sign of a credible business person, that is a person who is taking advantage of people’s insecurities for a quick buck. Instead of selling people dead leads, why not teach them how to build their business up the right way?
I read a great article recently and the following is a small snippet of that. You can read the whole blog by clicking on this link here: http://www.markitwrite.stfi.re/top-3-social-media-mistakes-to-avoid-at-all-costs/?sf=aaaljga#aa
Paying For Likes And Followers
This is an absolute cardinal sin that really gets my goat. Brands who have to pay for likes and followers in order to make themselves feel successful are simply kidding themselves and the few real followers that they’ve actually managed to organically accumulate.
Regardless of what you might think, padding out your Twitter following with 5,000 fake followers is not a harmless thing at all. For one thing, your real fans will notice, and all of a sudden your credibility will plummet and you’ll actually end up losing the only people who were ever really taking an interest in you in the first place, and the same goes for Facebook too. Entrepreneur.com offers the following warning: PAY ATTENTION
“Did you know that buying Facebook fans can actually hurt your brand by decreasing your overall reach?
“Fake fans will never interact or engage with your page, signaling to Facebook that your content isn’t interesting or valuable to your audience. This leads to an overall algorithmic decrease in your post reach and visibility. You could also find your account being closed, banned or deleted should Facebook find out about your schemes.”
Buying fake followers is no better than spamming real ones. Don’t do it….EVER!
Think about this. If you have to pay for subscribers or views, then you are not building a true base of people or customers. If people didn’t actively seek you out or stumble upon your content by surfing the web then chances are they could care less about what it is you have to offer. Would you sign up for a service that allowed your name to be assigned to random people’s accounts as a follower?
Think people……Think! Don’t try to buy your way to instant fame, you need to go out and earn it the hard way because that is the only way that your following will even last.
