You can also pair an influencer campaign with a bought-followers campaign for better results. Buy social media followers to look better online and attract more organic followers.
People tend to follow those with large social media followings, and are more likely to stop and check their accounts out when browsing randomly or comparing to competitors. So, appearing popular with your bought followers can help you gain real followers. In time, you’ll build a strong, organic following that will continually grow as long as you keep up your good work.
Next is IFTTT, which stands for If This Then That. IFTTT uses automated action sequences, or “recipes,” that you can set so that you don’t have to do those tasks yourself.
So, for example, you can set a recipe that says if you upload a new photo on Facebook, your Twitter account will automatically post a new tweet about it. Twitter will automatically do that every time you upload a new photo.
What’s cool is that the uploaded photo will appear as a native photo on Twitter. It’s different than simply linking your Facebook to your Twitter account so all your posts on one platform will be automatically posted on the other. With this productivity tool, you won’t see links to the picture but the picture itself!
It’s easy to make your own recipes and set triggers for the actions you want. You can also browse recipes shared by other users and simply activate them.
