One of my good friends, Carlton Flowers, posted a podcast about organic vs. Inorganic Twitter List building. Of course I had to respond with a blog post about the topic. Here goes…
First of all, I need to explain what I mean when I say Organic and Inorganic.
Organic basically means you build your list manually. In other words, you seek people out based on a common interest or geographical location, follow them and then hope they follow you back.
Inorganic is when you buy one of those programs that promises to give you x number of followers a day and automatically follow those people back.
What is my opinion? I’m so glad you asked! I don’t believe in using automated means to find followers. I prefer to follow people manually. I know this means that it takes me a while longer to follow new followers, but I feel better doing it that way, because then I know who I’m following.
So that’s my take on the issue. What do you think?
