Making the most of Twitter for small businesses #northeasthour

Some words of caution though. There is no short cut to high numbers of good followers. Sure you can take up one of those dodgy internet offers that promises “5,000 real followers for £299” but you won’t get much if any benefit other than a stroke of ego. Trust me, I’ve investigated these services to find out what (if any) value they give and the benefit is negligible. After making a purchase of 5,000 followers, just a week later the account had 2,400 left. Within a month this had dropped to fewer than 1,000 followers, despite the fact I was posting great content. When drilling down to examine the quality and relevancy of the followers remaining, we found just four who had tweeted or had any link to the (motor) industry. If you are happy to pay £299 for four good followers, then go ahead, I guess.
