Jan 22 Posted 2 years ago My opinion is different. I have many followers now without effort. Buying twitter followers is better than posting your twitter account in different websites saying "FOLLOW ME" just like a beggar. Sorry for that but that's true and based on experience. Now I read this article http://www.buytwitterfollowers.org/ then I proved that there are genuine and not fake Twitter followers vendor.

We agree! Lisa is a great writer and guest blogger, but that tip should've been changed. When you buy followers you're not buying loyalty. It's buying empty, none interactive, fake people. We believe whole heartedly at 3H that your consumers and clients should be able to trust your brand and the social media interaction you have with them. The phrase "It's not the size, it's how you use it" can be applied to social media. It's not about the number of followers you have it's how much you interact and provide good solid content to your followers/fans that make the difference.
Thank you all for the comments and feed back on this post.

I did enjoy the entire post until the point in which you recommend "buying twitter followers". That I don´t think is neither ethical nor recommendable at all. Twitter followers should be gained in a dual, interactive process, providing valuable content, engaging in conversations and so forth.
Other than that, all your recommendations sound good to me.

With all due respect Lisa, I agree with Coffee and think the recommendation to buy Twitter followers is terrible advice! Not only is it unethical, but it provides no results- other than a misleading follower count.

I really want to caution every single person that is reading this that this bit about Purchasing followers:
"Buy some Twitter followers- It’s not enough just to buy Twitter followers though. You need to engage with those targeted users to keep them around. Did you buy Twitter followers and then fail to do anything to boost engagement? Buying followers will only get you so far if you don’t provide something for them to interact with. Even targeted fans will grow bored if you’re not using your Twitter stream correctly."
This is 100% Bad Advice. Do NOT do this. (I want to help you and save you the money, time and trouble.) These followers are not real and you cannot engage with them. It will not help you in any way, it will only dilute your stream and quite possibly fill it with spam. There are just a few ethical delemmas with doing this as well but I will save that for a future post.
