Even though the purchasing of free followers is on the rise in recent times, it is not the best option especially for young and new entrepreneurs seeking to use social media to advertise and market their services. Even though you need the numbers to stamp authority online, it is better to have few numbers that you are comfortably converting into sales than huge numbers that are not adding any value regarding sales. The vast numbers of free followers you purchased may be bringing you more damage than good by diluting your engagements with real potential clients. Any social media strategy succeeds well if the customer engagement is in top gear.
In recent times, customers require regular personalized engagements to gain that trust and be convinced that you are offering quality worth services. As you focus on engaging with accounts that are mostly fake, you automatically lock out the real fans because they are left out of your engagements and will walk away to other entrepreneurs offering similar service. In a profile of many followers, they may feel uncomfortable to contact you.
