Want more IM Faceplate Followers?

Aug 26th 2010 at 8:21 AM

I see people struggling to get followers and quite truthfully it is not a big surprise to me. Here is why.

Now I do go visit new followers IM Faceplate page when I see they have followed me. I would like to find people that I want to interact.

Now a quick aside. This is providing they have not written on my face telling me I should follow them because they followed me. Do that and I guarantee I will NEVER follow you.

When I go visit a new followers faceplate I first look to see if they are actually using it. 90% of the time it is blank or only has a Twitter feed. Then when I look at the Twitter feed even that is not current or just be used to say when they are surfing at various sites.

Sorry you lose right there. You have not provided me with any reason to follow you.

So first thing is to actually have some useful content on your faceplate.

Do that and the odds of me following you have increased significantly.

Now that will not be a guarantee because the type of content and whether it will interest me will make the decision.

That actually is a good thing because I follow those who are likely to be discussing things that I am interested in and that is powerful when you attract followers like that. After all that makes me your perfect target audience.

So if you are serious about getting more followers and attracting the right tribe for you then build your faceplate and add content so people will know whether or not you are someone that they will want to follow.

And you will start attracting the followers for your tribe.

Unfortunately I have fallen guilty of this myself after warning everyone not to. I am hoping to change that, and your tips are spot on, only I am a lot more strict about whom I follow then you are :)

You make some valid points. I agree with most of it. I don't like people who I know will just end up bugging me to follow back. Who just be promoting stuff I have no interest in.

Straight to the point.. That's what I like about Mike ( He always nails the topic)I first met Mike -as we say on the *net- not to long ago. I messaged him and asked him how to do "something" and since I was following him I saw my answer in 1 of his next post's.. Everyone should take note of this article, it would improve the value of the content and sociability of Imfaceplate. Thanks again Mike John P

Absolutely. It works for me! And I follow Mike because he writes amazing stuff about blogging, and that's something I really need to learn about right now.

I have been doing exactly that Mike and my tribe has exploded. Same goes for me, if I'm following you its because you have something I want to learn about. Sometimes its about the country you live in or a common interest and not marketing. 8-D Soroya
