People with 161k subscribers on Facebook! How are they doing this!

by KidCash 28 replies
Seriously, I could be making a killing everyday if I knew how I could get thousands of subscribers to my Facebook account. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here is an example: https://www.facebook.com/imbrandoncyrus. Notice how he gets thousands of likes and hundreds and shares.

Does anyone know how they do this? If there is WSO about this, I will buy it right know haha

    It's very possible that they are buying some or all of their fans, subscribers and likes.

    You can buy all of the above on Fiverr for $5. A lot of people do buy FB fans/subscribers. They also buy likes.

    Really you can't figure out why Miley Cyrus's brother has 100k+ followers?

    In short, you get 100K+ followers by being related to famous people.

      This is not Miley Cyrus's brother...

    :rolleyes: one of those teenage boy accounts? All they do is post those stupid photos that say "Like if you agree" then beg people to subscribe.

      I know a way to bank off these types of accounts ($400+/day), I just need to figure out how I can work with them or make my own.

        Great in theory...but when it comes to practice :rolleyes:

        Let's face it, people are on Facebook for social interation, not having things sold to them

          Actually it looks like a Personal Facebook Profile, and not a Facebook/Fan Page.

          That TOS you stated only applies to Pages, not personal Profiles.

      Actually that is one of the technique to get more like. In Facebook you need to beg people to like your fan page. Unless you have something valuable to offer in contest, it is unusually to get hundred of like and share.

    You'd only be making a killing if those subscribers were "real" subscribers - people who voluntarily liked your page because they were interested in what you had to say.

    Many people try to buy facebook likes, but that is pointless. Zero money to be made doing that.

      Who said I was going to sell them anything, I just need the traffic and I can achieve that if I could get the exposure that these types of accounts get. Also the page was just an example of what I was talking about. I see dozens of regular guys with thousands of subscribers.

    I believe these are all fake likes and it is not targeted likes, if you get 100 targeted likes than it is very good than 10,000 fake likes because it is very targeted.. I hope this helps

    At the OP: That person in particular (https://www.facebook.com/imbrandoncyrus) seems to be already famous online.

    Google search his name: https://www.google.com/search?q=Brandon+Cyrus


    So if you can figure out a way to be famous, you'd have a chance of getting 164k subscribers like that guy. (Most of which seems to be real people)

    Otherwise, you can buy fake subscribers, which won't have any monetary benefit to you.

    Human Rights Petition: brandon cyrus: Remove his Facebook account | Change.org

    Brandon Cyrus has created internet fame for his assorted online accounts; however, he has been using his facebook fame to harness revenue for himself by posting pictures of starving and sick children. He uses these photos to garner "likes" for his page, which, in turn creates traffic for his personal facebook. The revenue that this traffic creates goes directly into his pocket. The young children he exploits don't see a dime of this money, however.

    Has anyone experimented with purchasing likes on a new page, to get it started? I don't think the purpose would be the likes you purchased, but it would look better than a pathetic page with 25 likes on it. It may help with social proof, then you can get real subscribers which would be useful obviously. I have not tested this, I wonder if anyone has though.

      A pathetic page with 25 interactive and engaged people is better that 250 that looks like a ghost town. plus the engagement helps your edge rank.

    Yeah, it's a personal page. I don't know how he got all those subscribers (maybe he purchased them) but regardless he is doing a good job running the page. Every post he makes gets tons of shares, comments, and likes. I would think that these are all natural fans...

    Simple are you ready here you go:

    1. Find a really interesting picture online.
    2. Post this picture on Facebook.
    3. Ask People to like the picture if they agree.
    4. Ask people to share if they disagree.
    5. Tell people if they want more friends on Facebook subscribe to your FB account
    6. Repeat steps 1-5 often as many times as possible

    That's the formula

      Great Post, Isaiah. I'm going to have a go at it. I wonder if you could add a few more words of advice. I have added a few questions.

      Q Where do they get this type of photo from?

      4. Ask people to share if they disagree.
      Q I'm not sure what this means. Should this be Agree not disagree?

      5. Tell people if they want more friends on Facebook subscribe to your FB account
      Q Whereabouts doyou tell them this?

      That's the formula
      Thanks for the ideas,

    You could also try leveraging off of other popular Facebook users.

    This kid Brandon Cyrus for example, had 161k Subscribers when you posted this thread.
    8 hours later, he's at 168k.

    Apparently he has lots of "haters" just as he has many fans.
    So you can leverage his insane popularity somehow, by either being "for or against" him.

    You can try pulling fans off of already popular people, then growing your own personal name slowly after that.

    For example, this guy posted a video "against" Brandon 2 weeks ago:

    Got allot of Fans and Activity on his video very quickly.

    Just a creative idea you may want to think about.

    Hi,

    In order to have this good amount of likes you could:

    Buy Likes on Fiverr.com for minimum of $5

    or

    Be a Famous Celebrity

    or

    You have a good Social Media strategy which includes sharing good content and engaging with your target audience.

    I hope this helps.

      what I find puzzling is that in every post he makes, he gets over 5000 likes. then, only 2-6 people/fans comment? those numbers seem to indicate that those are bought/fake fans.
      any other ideas?

    I have seen people with 37,000 subscribers, but 161k is unreal. Although I believe they may have earned so many subscribers by posting viral stuff like jokes, funny pictures, sarcastic comments and others. It's not that difficult to get so many likes if you're into entertaining Facebook users. I see nonsensical pages everyday with nothing but funny pictures on them that have over a million likes.

    I just googled the guy as well. It seems he's a major hit with teenage girls, because he posts "adorable" messages. I wouldn't say a majority of those 161k are bots, that guy's close to a celebrity.

    It's pretty interesting that you all are talking about being a celebrity entertainer or buying likes, but there's another way (and for me it's "back to basics" internet marketing):

    Publish a blog (or a website or an ebook) -> Be an authority in your niche -> Profit

    Here's a great example:

    Next to what's already been said, let's not forget the power of a good social campaign. Usually the setup is something like a give away where someone can win a free (and relatively expensive) gift for liking a page.

    Example: like us now and you could win an iPad.

    It may sound cliché, but I've seen many of these campaigns and action and they get tons of likes, shares, comments, etc. because everyone wants something for free.

    Hi Op,

    Yes, buying fans is one way. Another way is viral campaigns - which believe it or not - would be relatively 'easy' to get tens of thousands and even hundreds of thousands of fans if it's seeded correctly and you have the cash to light the fire and stoke it. The problem with this is that unless you are an absolute master an untargeted traffic conversion, it doesn't matter if you have 100K fans or 100.

    For instance, you might seed a viral campaign by buying PPV or interstitial traffic at something like $5 for 10K. Out of this, with a proper viral net set up, you could get probably around 150 fans right off the bat without any viral. Depending on what you were sharing to get those initial fans, some or most of them would also share what you were sharing (like an image or video or whatever) on multiple social mediums.
