No offense but the grammar used in the statement you quoted from them leads me to believe that they’re not a very important company.
In regards to your answer, just think of all the strategies you currently know and work out the average cost per follower, which should give you an idea of what’s what.
Right now, if you’re looking for followers that stick (non-drop) and are not fake, giveaway loops are the best. I’ve gained 5K+ followers on some accounts overnight with giveaway loops with 0 investment, as long as you can arrange all of the influencers to post the giveaway, and sell enough spots, you’ll break even. Or pay to join some.
However the followers you gain from giveaways clearly won’t be targeted nor interested in the companies content. It’s just a number.
Sorry, but you didn’t understand what this company “asked” or “challenged” us.
They gave us an account to analyze it and then explain them what methods were used on it.
They own the account, they know the methods they used on it.
ok got you & personally i dont think its good for you (your company) cus you shoukd be the one with authority and know when to show off this authority , i dont think its good thing to accept such challenge especially if you’re not sure how to reply cus now you working for free & if you did not make it you 'll lose your credibilty while gettin far from what it matters ( results) to keep things simple if he wants you to get him result you will use your secret sauce and thats it and we all know that there is not just one way but many so no need to test your knowldege , well thats me
We told them, based on our research, what we think they used to grow, and we were right, we didn’t share how we got to conclusions. (Our tools or methods to analyze an account).
This customer had very bad experiences with different size of agencies from very small to very important ones so they challenged a group of agencies.
BTW I work for a corporation and it’s quiet normal, lately, that customers ask for a proof of the abilities to perform certain task before signing the contract.
We believe that we so many people out there pretending they know about the business they got tired of that. (This applies to our Social Media dept., of course in software development this never happened as the customers can see our work and no need to prove anything to them.
When you work with big clients, you are working, in general, with the marketing dept. so it’s pretty clear that you are dealing with employees that are responsible for the decisions and when it comes to report to their management they must present results so they want to be sure that they are hiring the right people for the job. Simple as that.
We all know how “shady” could be some social media methods/techniques, so to be honest if I had the money I would the same as they do.
