Real twitter followers cost, they cost a lot. The only way to get real Twitter followers as we speak is through Twitter ads and it will cost you between $2.5-$4 per targeted follower. Untargeted followers on the other hand will cost you around $1 per follower. This means that for 100 real followers you would have to pay at least $100, for 1000 real followers min. $1k and so on.
The other day I created a gig, a genuine gig, where I offer unlimited real twitter followers for only $5. I know there are a lot of gigs about twitter followers on Fiverr, but they are all about bots. And I also know that a lot of people put “real” in their gig title even though they deliver (real looking at best) bots. Now it appears that these scamgigs (referred to the latter type) have become so common & frequent that the Fiverr community (Editors, Sellers, Buyers) have totally given up. When the service thousands of buyers have been lying about for years is finally put on offer by a seller, nobody notices it.
In Pavlovian terms we are dealing with the extinction of a positive stimulus. Just like Pavlov’s dogs wouldn’t salivate & eat a real sausage after having been lobbed plastic sausages for weeks, so Fiverr’s editors and (some) sellers/buyers won’t salivate when seeing a genuine $5 gig about real Twitter followers (worth hundreds/thousands usd) after having been offered identical scam gigs for years. Pavlov’s dogs wouldn’t bother to bite because the last 100 times they had bitten something with that shape and odour (fake sausage) it was only plastic. And Fiverr’s editors/(some) buyers won’t bite because the last time they looked closely into a gig that said “real Twitter followers” they were just bots. A positive buying stimulus such as “real twitter followers” has been rendered extinct.
I put Fiverr’s editors, sellers and buyers in one basket because when yesterday I opened a thread about this gig I received only one comment from a level one seller that said:
“Really?? It is impossible. Nope. I don’t buy it at all. All Twitter followers that you don’t get by natural means are ESSENTIALLY bots. Even famous celebrities only have a few million followers or so. Perhaps you should advertise it as ‘Unlimited Real-Looking or Life-Like Twitter Followers’. That’s more reasonable, isn’t it?”
Yes, he won’t even bother to bite. Because in his opinion not only am I lying but the service itself is impossible to provide. The hundreds of bot sellers have convinced him of this.
As for Fiverr’s CS, the other day I contacted CS and asked, why isn’t my new gig indexed by your search engine? Their answer was, our editors decide and there is nothing we can do. So then I realised Editors must have given up on “real twitter followers” gigs too. They have completely given up hope that someone might actually raise the bar and offer this high demand service for real.
Now here I am, after having invested over $100 per month since July to make it possible for me to offer such service one day on Fiverr, when the day I can create the gig finally comes, it falls into abyss. Fiverr (Editors + CS + Sellers + Buyers) put me in the same box as the other (bot) twitter follower sellers.
Keeping the systems that make this gig possible up and running takes money and several work hours of my time. I can’t say much more because there are a lot of deep pocketed competitors on Fiverr that could/might figure it out after a few hints. My question to the good meaning people reading this is, what do I do? Do I totally give up and stop investing in this extraordinary service that saves people hundreds/thousands of dollars and is perfectly aligned with the Fiverr service? Or should I go all in on this and just wait? I already tried creating the gig again but it appears that a gig with “real twitter followers” from me will simply not get any exposure on fiverr any time soon.
P.S.: The only reassuring thing is that I have already received 2 orders on the gig so far. I suspect it was through indirect exposure from other gigs of mine indexed in fiverr’s search engine.
