There is a good reason why networks like Google+, Twitter and Facebook are called social. Without followers, these can be lonely planets with you as the sole reader of your updates. My point, you need a working, tested and reliable way to gain free social media followers.
- Be active on the social media (nobody is going to follow a twitter account that was last updated six (6) months ago unless they are also absent online)
- Write catchy post titles or social media posts ( posts that result in discussion without necessarily being a troll)
- Never buy followers (they will unfollow later that is if you are lucky to get human followers in the first place)
- Understand the social media audience (who are your followers and what are their interest)
At the end of the day, you would have assumed fewer but quality following. I mean, people with great interest in the topics you are posting on. The method also works for bloggers in need of targeted readers.
The sites I’ll share below are one that I have used; some with great success and others with some struggle:
My experience at the site has seen me get more than 1000 social exchanges within a week. You can promote a tweet, a Facebook post, and YouTube video or even Vkontakte groups with much ease. Getting started at Addmefast is simple. Just sign up, verify your email and start exchanging to earn points.
There are about four ways of earning points here. Three are free but require some little effort from your end while the fourth needs no effort but money. In all scenarios, the number of points accumulated affects the number of followers you get. As mentioned, you can earn points by following, liking Facebook photos, repining Pinterest pins or just playing audio on Soundcloud. I would advise you choose well paying and most relevant updates to share.

You may also find some tweets are in languages other than English. The best thing is to translate such before sharing. Surely, it makes no sense to retweet Arabic posts to your English followers. You can always use Bing Translator on Facebook before sharing posts.
Another Key thing is to read the message as some may not be suitable to your audience. In other words, do not be too consumed with earning points that you forget your existing followers. You risk losing them if what you share is irrelevant to them.
The second way of earning points on Addmefast is through the Daily Bonus. The site rewards your activity with about 200 points daily. Just make you make at least 50 clicks before trying to claim it. 200 points can give you about 40 exchanges if you are giving 5 point per exchange.Imagine 30 Google +1 for your post per day!
The third option is via referral. The site allows you to share your referral links via the social media as well as placing banners on your site. Whichever is easier for you, you stand to earn 300 points per referral. One catch though, you referral must be active before your get 300 points.
If properly executed, the referrals will ensure that you never run out of points. Take an instance where you get 100 active referrals in a month. That will give you up to 30000 points, which means 6000 exchanges. You cannot downplay 6000 active Twitter followers in a month, for instance.
The last way to earn points at Addmefast is by buying their weekly bundles.
Now, as a bloggers or Internet Marketers, quality is of paramount importance. You would rather have only 20 people visiting your page, subscribing to your feeds and buying a product than 10000 simulated visits daily.
With Empire Avenue, you get quality. The other advantage is that most members have thousands of followers already and just one retweet can make your content go viral.

There are two types of membership at Empire Avenue. You could join as a free member, partake in social media stock game or pay and have extra features with little effort. The said social stock game means you buy shares in others. Remember, others will not buy shares from you while other shares are too expensive to acquire.
Like normal shares, you do not need to continue holding shares whose prices are dropping. I do sell the weak shares and buy in people who show potential for growth. Your share price is affected by number of shares people have in you, your social media activity and your participation on the site.
How do you get the Eaves and Vees to get your mission accomplished at Empire Avenue? It is simple, just do mission or buy eaves from the marketplace. Once you have enough eaves or vees, it is time to ask people to create missions. There Empire Avenue gives you what other sites do not; the ability to give instructions.
For instance, you can ask members to review your blog design, direct the community to your Facebook post or point them to your latest tweet. Now, you need to be careful with how you frame the mission. They introduced a mission grading system and insist that you don’t solicit comments, like and retweets.
So, how is this site helpful you may ask? Well, as long as you point the community members to something unique and high quality they will with certainty interact. I mean, a nice tweet will be retweeted and so on.
Another challenge is where a member collects the eaves but refuses to complete the mission. To address that, Empire Avenue has an improved feedback feature which allows you to report fraudulent acts. You shouldn’t’ be too quick to give negative feedback though as there may be some hitches that prevent the member from effecting the mission as soon.

I mostly use Likes Asap for promoting my posts on Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Facebook. All I can say about this site apart from highly recommending it is that it will worth your time. You may also change the points you’ve garnered on the site into cash and get paid via Paypal. Nothing comes close….
Twiends provides introductions to people looking to develop their social network on Twitter and Instagram. We use seeds to create the incentive for people to check each other out. When you follow someone they give you seeds, and vice versa when they follow you. You can decide how many seeds you want to offer per introduction, and when you run out you remain on the list so people can still check you out if they like. We focus on making the introduction, and you focus on deciding who you want to be friends with in the long run. We are not a “get followers fast” site or a follower train. You get to choose who you ‘friend’ and they get to do the same. Our focus is community building ~ Twiends

Briefly, it is where you get Followers, Repins and Pin Likes by doing the same for others. Like most exchange sites, you earn points and use the points to get followers. If you asked me, Viralwoot is the best site to get a following for your Pinterest account. The effect will be instant and completely free.
The site also allows exchange on almost all the social media and bookmarking sites. On the other hand, this site has a very user-friendly interface, pays cash for the referral not to mention that you can redeem a coupon for up to 5000 points
