Why Fake Likes & Followers Could Hurt You.
Recently I answered a quite common question these days. It's about Likes and Followers.
You can find the topic here:
What happened to Facebook and instagram likes?
However I'll show you my reply in this topic too, so there's literally no need to check the other topic.
So there you have it. The reason you can't buy or sell these Facebook or Instagram services anymore. Not on SEOClerks or any other Ionicware owned Marketplace, and you will most likely have a hard time finding these services elsewhere in the nearest future too.
That being said, hundreds or perhaps even thousands of topics regarding Fake likes and followers have been created during the years, both on SEOClerks and literally everywhere online. - People are eager to have tons of followers, fans and likes on their content and pages.
I'll name a few reasons I can think of, and let me just tell you that I've been selling these services previously too, even though I haven't sold it for a very long time now.
Anyhow, people want to be popular. Hence the reason for them to have thousands of followers. It looks cool and it's also easier to get likes from REAL humans if you already have a bunch of likes on your content. People follow people's actions. It's like a wheel.
If you find something you like then you'll either like it or share it. Or perhaps leave a comment. Perhaps you'll even do all three actions, right?
That said, if you find a funny video, a good article or whatever, but there's literally zero people who've liked or replied, then you'll probably not be the first one to do it either. That's just how things are.. - Someone has to take the first step! - And that's also where these Fake profiles come in. You give yourself a small advantage. A head-start so to speak.
What most people don't think of, is how these things could potentially hurt your business. Especially in the long run.
Fake likes are easy to spot, even if they are of high quality.
Let's say that you create a new Facebook page for your new service or product. You suddenly, from nowhere get 5,000 new fans, all of them look real and they have decent profile pictures, and content on their profiles, all to look as real as possible.. - But NONE of them interacts with ANY of your content on your page... Doesn't that look weird? - Of course it does!
And why would something like that hurt your business? - This is actually common sense to most people.
If I find a decent product and I look at their page, and within seconds I find out that they've bought fake likes, or that they are using fake likes to increase their numbers of fans.. Well, then I'll stay away. Which means that I won't purchase their product and they lose a potential customer.
And why would I ignore the product due to the use of fake likes? - It's simple!
If they have THAT superb product or service, but not even ONE person have bothered to give them a nice review or to interact with ANY of their content.. - How good could that product really be?
In my book, it has zero value and that's why I won't bother with it.
Potential customers are looking for real reviews, honest feedback, great feedback. That sort of thing. - Just look at SEOClerks marketplace for instance. Everyone knows that it's easier to get sales as long as you have good reputation, great reviews and superb recommendations.. So why wouldn't it be the same outside of SEOClerks?
