How to Fake Twitter & Facebook Followers and Become a Social Media Expert

How to Fake Twitter & Facebook Followers and Become a Social Media Expert

Yes, well here we go again, another one of those, I’ve got  a list of over “9,000? Twitter followers so I’m a social media expert marketing forms has hit my desk today. Come along it says, “to my affiliate marketing driven roadshow and in 4 hours I’ll make you the expert, but there’s more, if you sign away your hard earned money right now, i have an e-book special for you, yes just for you, an E-Book that I didn’t write by the way,but I’ll pretend its mine, and all it will cost you is $ 89.00.”

 

I get emails like this every day, offering free product that I can sell or give away as my own, I get E-Books, money making ideas and lots of materials that I can re-brand, that’s not being an expert, that’s a faker.

 

These so called experts all have massive numbers of followers on social media sites like MySpace and Facebook and of course Twitter, and they fool you to part with your money.

 

Well don’t fall for it, because I’m going to tell you how to fake it, and then you too can be the instant social media expert, you know, the one who can’t get a job selling real estate so they opt for this easy money.

 

Ok this is how you do it, On MySpace and Facebook, you find as many people with similar names or interests as you and then send them friend requests, a lot will decline but you would be surprised at the number that actually come back and accept you, that way you build up your following very quickly, they never do anything with you but hey it builds your numbers. Next Twitter, there are a number of programs that will show you how to build big follower numbers and it’s funny but it’s nearly always around the 9000 mark. You can do the same with Twitter as you do with MySpace and Facebook, that is follow large numbers of people and I’ll guarantee you a fair number will follow you back, and you know the dead giveaway? look at the follower number next to the following number, that they can’t hide.

 

I know of one expert that actually sends out his flyers with “I have 9000 followers on twitter” so I must be good, well one thing he doesn’t tell you is he follows over 10,500. If you really want to get serious with this, have a look at the Twitter accounts with large followings, 99% of them are well known actors, celebrities or business people, so what does that tell you.

 

I have always taken the tack that to build a social media following you should earn it, build it on providing good quality information and advice and create the “Expert” tag through experience and generate your followers organically not by underhand means and faking it.

 

There are so many “snake oil” sales people out there you really need to hang on to your wallet.

 

So next time you get a flyer or an invite, stop and do some research first, the web and Google are a great place to find out information on your expert. How many articles have they had published?, where do they rank on Google?, What recommendations do they have and what companies have they worked with in designing and integrating a social media strategy. For example, I’ve just done a search on social media experts, and this person I’m telling you about doesn’t even rank on the top 20 pages.

 

Is this sour grapes? no, I just don’t like rip off artists who pray on people like you.

3 Inspirational Quotes to Help You Become More Successful

3 Inspirational Quotes to Help You Become More Successful

3 Inspirational Quotes to Help You Become More Successful

Lots of successful people have been inspired by the success of others especially those who  acquired tremendous wealth and became the center of envy by those who are a little underprivileged. These people became what they want, because they copied from those who were ahead of them and it was followed from generation to generation. It becomes a trend and nobody want to be left behind and so the process continues. Successful people are always the inspirations by those who want to follow their footsteps.

I have selected some quotes from famous people who contributed to the world to become an inspiration to mankind and embraced to enjoy.

1. Napoleon Hill

“Before success in any man’s life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do”.

This is true to those who are not so serious to succeed. Most people are eager to start when they are still in its early burst of enthusiasm. As the days and even months continued, and there work is still halfway to the finish line, they tend to become disinterested anymore and later on quit without giving justice to what they have started to see its course.

I am one of the victim of these early-to-start-early-to-quit mentality. I’ve started a project with the intention of getting it done on time based on my time table. But, as the time have passed and nothing came out into manifestation, I became frustrated and leave the work unfinished. This happened many times in my life, I became easily frustrated and ended up in a state of solitude and self pity.

Until I finally realized, and with the help of this quotes of Napoleon Hill, I was able to manifest a true change in my life. Now, anything I commenced, either it be a simple task to a more complicated ones, I always stick to this inspirational quote as a guide for me to go on with my plans until the final result becomes apparent.

2. Calvin Colidge

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than successful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is filled with educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and always will solve, the problem of the human race”.

This is the most excellent quote I’ve encountered from the famous Calvin Coolidge. The content from it, is so magnetic that I am carried away by its meaning. Usually, many individuals are proud with their lots of recognitions and diplomas, thinking that those recognitions could bring them to success. So they end up waiting for some opportunities to arrive them without making some efforts to utilize those enormous resources they possesses.

No matter how you possess all those positive resources, if you’ll not exert your efforts to follow what you desires, nothing would comes out into reality.

3. Theodore Roosevelt

“The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people”.

Public relation plays an important role in the life of a person. It’s through getting along with people that you can be classified as a real person who can be treated the way others treat you. It’s a way how people value you as an  individual when you showed your inner self as well as your potentials to be of more important for them. Through your good rapport with your peers, you’re considered as a part of their lives, and because you’re not foreign to them, they’re all at peace to seek your help without any second thought whatsoever. They’re open to all their problems at your own disposal to give a quality solutions.

With this quality you possess, your success becomes more apparent to show its course.
