So, Want to buy twitter followers ? Here’s a review

What’s the first aim for a business which has just started ? Reach out to the people as much as possible. With the existence of social media, promoting business has somewhat become very easy and also very effective to gain attention and recognition. The social media giant, Twitter, provides the perfect base to promote one’s business or as we bloggers do, promoting our  blogs.

Now comes the interesting part. The subject of the number of followers one has in a Twitter account.

It is obvious that more the followers, the better chances of getting your 140 character message around. Many services have sprung up where they offer to give you certain amount of followers for a reasonable price. For example, the famous Twiends which allows you to grow your followers by the form of having seeds. The free-service won’t help you much in getting followers but buying more seeds enables you to get more followers and hence more exposure. Another type of service such as SEOclerks, provides the users a platform to buy twitter followers from a number of providers who give different type of prices for the number of followers they will be able provide you.

Let’s have a scenario

For instance: Person ‘A’ has 12000 Followers which s/he recently bought and Person ‘B’ has 400 followers where s/he follows and gets followed manually.

So what advantage does Person A has over Person B ?

Person A has a lot of followers which means s/he has a larger amount than person B, no doubt. Having a lot of followers mean that your 140 character message will be circulated around these followers. In simple terms, your reach will be much greater than Person B.  A large network not only lets you increase your reach but also lets your messages to get retweeted, shared and may be even recommended to others. This allows you to also get automatically followed by others because of your attractiveness. More the exposure to your business, more the profit.
Traffic to your site will increase and also help to increase your sales.  More over, as a result of increase in traffic that person A will get from 120000 followers, it would also help to increase the rankings in the search engines.

 Buy Twitter Followers

Now what can be the disadvantages ?

Now you might be attracted by the packages that promises you a ‘number’ of followers to your account but it should be noted that quality matters as well. There is no guarantee that those followers that you have are all ‘real’ people. Most of them might be just fake profiles. Therefore there are slim chances of your messages getting retweeted and even shared.
I have tried Twiends ( the free service ) and found out that at first, a huge number of people follows me but as the days go by, the number of followers starts decreasing and I was pretty sure those were the followers from Twiends.
Even if you have bought the followers, there is less chance of interacting with them. Would it be fruitful for your business then ? Not at all.
In simple words, buying twitter followers is a spammy tactic.

Person B on the other hand tends to have 400 quality followers where s/he has a great interaction with most of them. This not only allows the messages to get heard but also get referred to his/her followers’s followers! Person B would automatically have followers following him because of his great content and interaction with his friends on Twitter..

Conclusion

Discussing both the advantages and disadvantages, we can finally say that if you are willing to increase the number of followers just for the sake of the amount, buying twitter followers is for you. Moreover in short time, you will be able to get a  large number of followers which can be attractive. On the other hand, if you want to go for quality then buying twitter followers is not for you. Although some services may tell you they will be providing ‘real’ followers, there will be fake profiles in them. As we all know, slow and steady wins the race. Get to know your followers, interact and eventually success will flow in.

Hope this short review will help you in making a decision!

    Well, I have been using this service called profollower they are really awesome and they do provide real human followers not some bots or fakes. Like those services where you can buy 5000 followers for $15 and they will be delivered to your account in 1 day. That makes absolutely no sense. There's no way that seller can provide real human followers for that price and within 1 day, seriously.

    I'd better have 1000 targeted followers who are real human followers instead of 10000 fake bots. I could easily make more money with 1000 followers than somebody with 10000 fake followers.

    buying twitter followers might be good if you have to show up your followers list in order to impress someone, but quality of the followers also matter.

    quality > quantity. I could earn followers who are interested in my blogs content, or I could buy followers that will ignore my tweets. Great article!

    Twitter Followers has both advantages and disadvantages.Each and every twitter followers must be active followers from the base of the quality followers only we can increase the traffic of our websites and get more revenue.

    I do agree with this advice. My followers may not be many, but they followed me for a reason. The interact well and seem to care about what I have to say. Here's for quality over quantity!

    I agree that buying followers is a spammy tactic, the only time I ever buy a following is for Facebook fanpage where you need 25 fans before you can set a custom page name, in this case spending $5 on Fiverr just so you can jumpstart the page and take the name before somebody else gets it is worth it. The followers are useless for interaction and any sort of marketing purpose though, I just use them to bump the count so I can set the custom page url.

    For Twitter there is even less of a reason to buy following as they typically are non-interactive, I also spent about $40 in Twiends a while back subscribing to the membership where you got credits weekly. I did see jumps in following but no real increase in engagement and no increase in # of visits or conversations from that jump in following.

      Well that sounds like a good idea to those who want to start having their homepage in Facebook. And about Twiends, totally dissapointing. I was thinking of spending some few bucks on it but I was pretty sure it would be of no use. I would just be buying some numbers which would be useless.

    As in many other cases I would say that quality wins over quantity. I would of cause like to get more followers, but I would also like them to be active on Twitter. Accounts with fewer than 50 tweets are not very attractive to me. The same goes for Twitter accounts only running on auto pilot.

      That is one problem that the users who buy twitter followers face, followers who are not at all active. And anytime quality will always win over quantity!
