As a Shopify expert we get emails almost every day asking us to look at a website and see why it’s not getting sales. The next usual question is hey, “how can I quickly get Social Media followers, likes, video views, subscribers, and comments” to boost sales? To which our answer is always, “there’s no quick way”. So, before you light up the comment section, let’s break the question down. Such as, what’s the purpose of the likes? Are you just trying to raise capital for your “fill in the blank here” product or service so you need some numbers to impress an prospective investor? Hey look at us, we have 10,000 likes on Facebook. You need to pay attention to us, because 10,000 people can’t be wrong…or can they? Or, are you just someone that likes to throw around numbers to sound like you’re doing something. Something very important, and it must be…look at the numbers!
See, almost all websites that offer purchased followers, e.g., https://www.socialboost.co/ cannot really promise anything, except a number. That’s right, a number of nothing. But please don’t take our word for it, read their site.
All accounts that engage with your social media account are 100% REAL or ACTIVE accounts. We use the best possible method to get you the highest quality followers. We cannot guarantee engagement from these accounts (such as liking your posts).
Ok, so you successfully purchased a large set of numbers pulled from active accounts. Woohoo! But at what cost did you purchase these accounts? See the real issue is these active accounts don’t know you, don’t care about you, don’t know your why, and they surely don’t want to hear from you. If anything you’ve done more damage to your brand than anything. You haven’t earned anything, especially the privilege to talk to them. Why? Because they didn’t even know they were being added to your ledger – and they really don’t want any part of your get-rich-quick scheme.
Instead, try the long approach. Drip it out every day. Show up, and make things happen. Stand for something. Your product or service isn’t for everybody, and that’s ok, do it anyway. Pick a social media platform that works well for you, and start. Keep creating, keep being consistent, keep being accountable, and keep being trustworthy. Drip by drip, you will build relationships (with people that have names), and that’s far more important than a number in a ledger.
