I can't argue with your personal experience, but I can say that from what I have seen, you can target around click farms. Obviously if you are in the countries that have bulk amounts of clickfarms, you shouldn't shut those countries off, I am in the USA, so for me, it is best to turn them off. As for the 'truth' about Facebook not doing enough, that is up to the person spending the money. In my experience using ads on Facebook I have the tools I need, unfortunately that may not be true for others.
Thank you for reading and your comments, I really appreciate them.
Not a problem Mike, ha ha. Yes Triberr does rock, I love it!
I think the problem is we all assume everyone knows this basic piece of information about social media, so when they jump into planning, they just assume that's already accounted for, but it isn't. All along the way you should ask "How do my followers benefit from this?" because if they don't, it might be time to go back to the drawing board.
Btw, I just had the exact issue with my car battery so I thought somehow you knew me. ;)
Thank you Ricky,
It's so easy to forget what the driving force is behind social media when you want to see RESULTS now. We all need an occassional reminder. Glad you liked, the article, and I hope we meet up again in this crazy internet world.
I apologize for not getting back to you more quickly, I didn't receive a notification there were comments. What I would do is start with Facebook and run some monthly contests for the t-shirts- be sure to include pictures of the shirts in your regular updates. Then use Twitter to share about the company, news for cool t-shirts, etc, I suggest Twitter because it's much easier to grow a large following. Last but not least Pinterest should be great for your t's because it is a virtual network. If you need more of a walk through, contact me through my site and I'll help you out.
