Want to be a superstar, but no time for social media? Fake it with Ghost Tweeter | {grow} | Social Media | Scoop.it

"What if I told you that you could become an industry “thought leader” without ever writing a blog post. Or, that you could achieve Twitter stardom without personally sending a single tweet.I didn’t believe it either, but some people are apparently doing it. Maybe even some people you follow. And you may never guess how they’re doing it.

 

Ghost Tweeting is one of a number of companies that have emerged to outsource the writing and distribution of all your blogs, tweets, and posts. They will even handle all the social media engagement for you. “All the benefits, none of the work,” reads the tagline on their website....

Thanks for your comment Malek. I think the days of "ghost" writing on social media are limited without open and honest disclosure and transparency. Nothing wrong with teams tweeting but many, including high profile personalities, authors, politicians and many others will resist. When the you know what hits the fan, that's when the trouble starts. Of course, when the intern screws up, you can always claim you were hacked LOL.

We first had fake accounts, then fake fans and now...? if there's a will, there's always a shortcut.......!!

As others have noted, this approach is not only not authentic, it's borderline unethical. But how does it really differ from hiring consultants to design and write marketing material for your business?

 

What do you think of this technique? Comment below.

As a boss, employer or manager, the art of delegation of work is best achieved through proper communication, understanding of a persons capabilities, and the imparting of all relevant facts associated with the task.

I am a real believer of "Management by Objective".

By developing clear gaols and the objectives to get there you will create a motivated group pf employees.

Battle royale! Which of the world's top 10 brands is biggest on social? | Social Media | Scoop.it

Lots of social media insight from this post... "Brand" will always be a nebulous term. Arguments rage about its true value, especially on social media...Although recent research shows that it can be responsible for nearly 15% of your total worth (Or much, much more, if you’re J.K.Rowling) It’s still seen by many as the ultimate wooly metric. There’s no doubt that being a household name will improve your chances of success in social, but just how far will it take you?I’ve taken a look at the world’s top ten brands, and matched up their profiles across the biggest social media platforms.Let’s see what’s in a name...
