Social Media Tips

10 Legit Ways To Get Free Social Media Followers

0
It is one thing to join a social site and another to gain followers. Twitter is a good example; unless you are a celebrity, there are chances that you will stay with a few friends as followers. You may follow up to 1000 people for them to ignore your gesture and refuse to follow back.

There is a good reason why networks like Google+, Twitter and Facebook are called social. Without followers, these can be lonely planets with you as the sole reader of your updates. My point, you need a working, tested and reliable way to gain free social media followers.

Social Media Followers

In this post, we are going to look into one of the most effective ways to get free social media followers. But before we jump to the tips, here are some things that will sustain you social media presence:
  • Be active on the social media (nobody is going to follow a twitter account that was last updated six (6) months ago unless they are also absent online) 
  • Write catchy post titles or social media posts ( posts that result in discussion without necessarily being a troll)
  • Never buy followers (they will unfollow later  that is if you are lucky to get human followers in the first place)  
  • Understand the social media audience (who are your followers and what are their interest)
Followers are only useful if they are targeted and active. Why? Well, you cannot depend on sports enthusiasts to actively respond to your updates on internet marketing or blogging. Therefore, only follow those who share your interests and hope that they return the favor by following back.

At the end of the day, you would have assumed fewer but quality following. I mean, people with great interest in the topics you are posting on. The method also works for bloggers in need of targeted readers. 

While the above method promises better results, it is slow and may take months to get even 100 Facebook fans. Therefore, you ought to complement it with a secondary method. Social media exchange sites allow you to like, follow or participate in other social media actions collect points for doing so and use the points to get followers.

  1. Benefits Of A Big Social Media Audience 

The sites I’ll share below are one that I have used; some with great success and others with some struggle:

1. Addmefast

If you are looking for the fastest way to get free social media followers then Addmefast is the site to visit. As the name suggests, the site will give you thousands of followers within the shortest time you can ever imagine and without paying a dime.

My experience at the site has seen me get more than 1000 social exchanges within a week. You can promote a tweet, a Facebook post, and YouTube video or even Vkontakte groups with much ease. Getting started at Addmefast is simple. Just sign up, verify your email and start exchanging to earn points.

There are about four ways of earning points here. Three are free but require some little effort from your end while the fourth needs no effort but money. In all scenarios, the number of points accumulated affects the number of followers you get. As mentioned, you can earn points by following, liking Facebook photos, repining Pinterest pins or just playing audio on Soundcloud. I would advise you choose well paying and most relevant updates to share.

You may also find some tweets are in languages other than English. The best thing is to translate such before sharing. Surely, it makes no sense to retweet Arabic posts to your English followers. You can always use Bing Translator on Facebook before sharing posts.

Another Key thing is to read the message as some may not be suitable to your audience. In other words, do not be too consumed with earning points that you forget your existing followers. You risk losing them if what you share is irrelevant to them.

The second way of earning points on Addmefast is through the Daily Bonus. The site rewards your activity with about 200 points daily. Just make you make at least 50 clicks before trying to claim it. 200 points can give you about 40 exchanges if you are giving 5 point per exchange.Imagine 30 Google +1 for your post per day!

The third option is via referral.  The site allows you to share your referral links via the social media as well as placing banners on your site. Whichever is easier for you, you stand to earn 300 points per referral. One catch though, you referral must be active before your get 300 points.

If properly executed, the referrals will ensure that you never run out of points. Take an instance where you get 100 active referrals in a month. That will give you up to 30000 points, which means 6000 exchanges. You cannot downplay 6000 active Twitter followers in a month, for instance.

The last way to earn points at Addmefast is by buying their weekly bundles.

I remember stumbling upon Empire Avenue while searching free social media followers. It is the most reliable site as far as I am concerned. Empire Avenue may not give you thousands of followers instantly, but the quality of the few followers is higher.

Now, as a bloggers or Internet Marketers, quality is of paramount importance. You would rather have only 20 people visiting your page, subscribing to your feeds and buying a product than 10000 simulated visits daily.

With Empire Avenue, you get quality. The other advantage is that most members have thousands of followers already and just one retweet can make your content go viral.

There are two types of membership at Empire Avenue. You could join as a free member, partake in social media stock game or pay and have extra features with little effort. The said social stock game means you buy shares in others. Remember, others will not buy shares from you while other shares are too expensive to acquire.

Like normal shares, you do not need to continue holding shares whose prices are dropping. I do sell the weak shares and buy in people who show potential for growth. Your share price is affected by number of shares people have in you, your social media activity and your participation on the site.

How do you get the Eaves and Vees to get your mission accomplished at Empire Avenue? It is simple, just do mission or buy eaves from the marketplace. Once you have enough eaves or vees, it is time to ask people to create missions. There Empire Avenue gives you what other sites do not; the ability to give instructions.

For instance, you can ask members to review your blog design, direct the community to your Facebook post or point them to your latest tweet. Now, you need to be careful with how you frame the mission. They introduced a mission grading system and insist that you don’t solicit comments, like and retweets.

So, how is this site helpful you may ask? Well, as long as you point the community members to something unique and high quality they will with certainty interact. I mean, a nice tweet will be retweeted and so on.

Another challenge is where a member collects the eaves but refuses to complete the mission. To address that, Empire Avenue has an improved feedback feature which allows you to report fraudulent acts. You shouldn’t’ be too quick to give negative feedback though as there may be some hitches that prevent the member from effecting the mission as soon.

3. Likes Asap

The sites design looks sketchy and unprofessional at best. However, you are not looking for elegantly designed sites, are you? Likes Asap, lives up to the name; you get social media shares and following as immediate and possible and they are genuine followers.

There are 4 different ways to earn points.
#1 Earn Points by Buying Them
If your time is important then this might be the best option. You can purchase points by following this page. All points purchased will be added to your account within 8 hours, but usually within minutes if purchased during business hours in EST zone. We accept PayPal, Payza, OkPay and Perfect Money.
#2 Earn Points by Following, Liking, etc.
In order to earn points this way just click on one of the Icons at the top of this page. If you plan to Like Facebook Pages for Points then click on the “Facebook Likes” icon. You will receive a list of pages to interact with. The “Points” listed under each page is how many points you will receive for Liking that page.
#3 Earn Points by Referrals
You can earn points for telling your friends, family or advertising your banner. Just use your “Referral Link” when sending them to the site. You will receive 50 Points for each person + 10% of its profits that sign up to LikesASAP from a different internet connection (IP).
#4 Earn Points by Daily Bonus
We also offer a daily bonus. You can earn this daily bonus just by logging in and using the system. ~ Likesasap.com

I mostly use Likes Asap for promoting my posts on Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Facebook. All I can say about this site apart from highly recommending it is that it will worth your time. You may also change the points you’ve garnered on the site into cash and get paid via Paypal. Nothing comes close….

4. Traffup

If you asked me where I would promote a tweet, then Traffup would be my first pick. It works like charm. In fact, it is a simple as buying or working for your points and adding your tweet or the Twitter account of choice
Twitter is not the only thing you can promote at Traffup. You can also get 100s real Facebook Fan Page followers absolutely free. I wouldn’t advocate for using this site as a source of web traffic though. For starters, traffic from such sites are only helpful with your Alexa ranking and nothing more. Adsense will ban your account for using traffic exchange sites. 
So, limit your use of Traffup to getting free social media followers or promoting your posts on twitter. Again and that is if you have some cash, buy the Traffup Pro Membership for better services including a refund of points in cases of unfollow.

5. Twiends

This is the ultimate site to get followers. Here is an excerpt from explaining how it works. 

Twiends provides introductions to people looking to develop their social network on Twitter and Instagram. We use seeds to create the incentive for people to check each other out. When you follow someone they give you seeds, and vice versa when they follow you. You can decide how many seeds you want to offer per introduction, and when you run out you remain on the list so people can still check you out if they like. We focus on making the introduction, and you focus on deciding who you want to be friends with in the long run. We are not a “get followers fast” site or a follower train. You get to choose who you ‘friend’ and they get to do the same. Our focus is community building ~ Twiends

here is the secret; filter your followers and the people you follow by specifying your interests. Utilize the boost option and invite many friends to get more seed. It is that simple even if you don’t have the money to buy seeds, your twitter accounts and Instagram can still get thousands of followers.

As to whether these followers will stay depends on what your updates and the integrity of the member who followed.
You need free social media followers for your Google+ Page, right? YoulikeHits is the site to visit. I garnered up to 58 followers just in one day. Unlike other sites where the Google+ followers will vanish as soon as one day, the followers I got  here are genuine and have stayed for more than 3 months.
As with every exchange site, I’m inclined to warn against using the site for traffic.The quality is too low and may end up damaging your blogs rank on top search engines. 
Unlike Twitter and Facebook, getting Google+ shares is not as easy. In fact, even those who sell Google followers (something I would advocate against) hike its price because of its SEO value. Now, the dominance of Google when it comes to online visibility is unchallenged. Since they command over 60% of search, you had better be in good books with them.

In addition, it appears having more Google shares makes your articles index faster and even make it to the first page. You need fast +1s from real people? Well, FollowsPro is your number one choice. The good thing is, it works like any other exchange i.e. you can buy points or exchange likes to earn them.

I was referred to Likes4Likes by a friend who told me that it was the worth joining. Honestly, I never regretted joining. The process is more or less similar to Social Media Explode. You sign up, add your social media profiles and start earning credits by doing simple social tasks like subscribing to YouTube channels etc.
It is advisable to subscribe to or like pages that are relevant to you. The same should apply to your retweets (if you are keen on retaining your followers).  According to me, Likes4Likes is the easiest way to get Facebook Webshares
I stumbled on Viralwoot while looking for ways to increase my Pinterest following. My Pinterest account had a miserly 18 followers for the two years it had been active. Well, that was my account before I joined Viralwoot.

Briefly, it is where you get Followers, Repins and Pin Likes by doing the same for others. Like most exchange sites, you earn points and use the points to get followers. If you asked me, Viralwoot is the best site to get a following for your Pinterest account. The effect will be instant and completely free.

10. Followlike

This site is the best for affiliate marketers. In fact, FollowLike helps you reap from the hundreds of referral opportunities out there. It has a feature where you can ask for signups and pay with coin. You do not have to look stranded with your affiliate links anymore. Share them on FollowLike and get your commission from the unlimited signups.

The site also allows exchange on almost all the social media and bookmarking sites. On the other hand, this site has a very user-friendly interface, pays cash for the referral not to mention that you can redeem a coupon for up to 5000 points

Please do not forget to share with me your experience on the comment box. I will be ready to assist you where possible. Otherwise, go get follows or blog traffic and boost your online popularity.
