A Review of TribeBoost‘s Twitter Follower Growth Service
Social media is new, so the terminology is still being formed. You might be more interested in TribeBoost if I called it “social advertising” (so you know it competes with alternatives like Twitter ads, or more broadly with Facebook or LinkedIn ads).
But the term “social advertising” implies that you can run a content-based campaign with TribeBoost – which you can’t. TribeBoost does one thing, and one thing only: it grows your Twitter followers. Scroll down to see awesome screenshot proof of how much TribeBoost rocks.
When I tell people I know how they can get thousands of Twitter followers in a few short months, a common response is:
“Why do I need Twitter follower growth?”
(I’ve even had an investor nearly shout that in my face).
Marketing is a numbers game, much like gambling. If you pay for $100 of Google Adwords, you can expect a certain percentage of clicks, and then a certain percentage of conversions (sales).
The same is true of Facebook ads and Twitter ads. It all depends on your service and your industry, but the basic idea is consistent:
If more people see your stuff, more people will buy your stuff.
That’s why Twitter follower growth is beneficial – or any growth on social media for that matter. If you have 1000 Twitter followers, a sliver of them will see each Tweet you post. If you have 100k followers, it’ll be a bigger sliver. The percentage of people who see each social media post you create can vary quite a lot on different social networks. A while ago, most people said Facebook had the best rate of visibility, but now Facebook is saying 1-2% of your page fans will see each post!
This means you need to pay for ads. You could try to grow your page ‘organically’ (without advertising) but this is difficult across all social networks. On Twitter, at least you can manually grow your follower count by following people who will be interested in following your account.
With enough work (and avoiding suspension), you can get 100-300 followers per month by cruising around Twitter following your target audience. It will take you hours and hours of work.
Kevin Strasser, founder/developer of TribeBoost, realized the need for consistent growth on social media. He saw the measurable results one could get on Twitter by manually following lots of people. Read his thoughts behind the service:
Let’s look at some actual Twitter follower growth:
That’s over 1000 Twitter followers per month.
One of our clients had about 500 Twitter accounts when they began on a subscription to TribeBoost (which we include in each of our premium packages):
That’s about 700 followers per month. Note how the increase in growth rate as time goes on – this is because more people follow you back once your account reaches a higher number of followers.
Does TribeBoost work for small Twitter accounts? You bet!
The account below had beneath 100 followers when it began with TribeBoost:
Just like with the second account, we predict that the rate of growth will increase dramatically as time goes on.
Remember: the quality of these followers is really high. We submit the target audience for each Twitter account to TribeBoost, and TribeBoost gathers oodles of data (Tweets, other accounts, hashtags, etc), in order to follow accounts that fit your target demographic.
TribeBoost Costs $99 Per Month – How Does That Compare With Other Social Advertising Methods?
Let’s compare TribeBoost with Twitter and Facebook ads.
At an average rate of $0.40 to $1.50 per Like, $100 = 67 to 250 Likes.
At an average rate of $0.30 to $1.00 per Follower, $100 = 100 to 333 Followers.
At the very least, 300 Followers per month. At most, over 1000 Followers per month.
300 to 1000 Followers = $0.10 to $0.33 per Follower.
We came up with those numbers because we run Facebook and Twitter ads for dozens of our clients.
TribeBoost offers Twitter Follower Growth at a rate 3.5-10x more cost-effective than any other social advertising platform.
