Does Number of Followers or “Likes” Really Matter?

The world of Social Media can often be very singleminded. From event invitations to private messages where people ask you to “like” their page, no one seems to get the bigger picture.

It’s quality over quantity, folks. 

If you frequently message everyone asking them to “like” your page, chances are that the percentage of people you are annoying is far greater than that of new friends or new fans you are making. Even if people “like” your page, they probably aren’t just going to buy your CD.

Today’s market has truly become a niche market. That’s why people with only 1000 Facebook Fans can make a living. They find the 1000 fans that truly love their niche. These 1000 people care about the artist, and guess what? They’ll buy his or her albums

It’s better to have 1000 fans who buy your album than 100,000 fans who don’t care what you’re doing. 

So how do you attract real fans? To sum it all up:

1. Be honest – Engage people, talk to them, be yourself.

2. Provide great content – Be creative. When people think of your page, they should think of it as a hub of interesting information and fun things to do.

3. Be consistent.
