If you have even the slightest interest in NFTs, and especially if you have dared to tweet something about NFTs, I am almost certain that you have received several messages or quote retweets with promotional offers.
Of course, the same is true for Instagram and Facebook. Spammers are everywhere when it comes to Social.
If, on the other hand, you are an artist attempting to promote your work, the situation becomes even more dire. Every minute, your DMs on all social media platforms are bombarded with spam proposals. Accounts that have recently been created are flooding you with “amazing” promo offer.s
It’s a complete mess, and it’s also very disturbing. All of these messages require time and effort to block, report, and delete.
But every now and then, when I’m in the mood, I’ll start interacting with these phony profiles. Sometimes it’s out of pure curiosity, and other times it’s because I want to have a good time.
In general, the result is incredibly “entertaining:. When you see some of these people who claim to have millions of followers, it is easy to realize that while they do have the number of followers they claim, they are all fake.
Don’t ask me how I know or how I can be so certain. It is not necessary to be Einstein to see what is right in front of you. As an example, consider the following: Take, for example, a Twitter account with a few hundred thousand followers… You look at their tweets and notice that they only have a few likes. Something along the lines of 0.00001 percent. What does this mean?
Same stands for Instagram…
Of course, some of them will take it a step further and receive more likes or retweets, but there is a catch. Simply go through and see who liked and retweeted… In most cases, 90% of the profiles that took action are the same in all cases.
As for the costs, take a seat and enjoy… I was asked to pay 2 ETH for 1 tweet and 1 Instagram post for an NFT that can be purchased for 0.05 ETH… And, unsurprisingly, the majority of those so-called promoters have assured me that the sale is guaranteed.
Of course and it would be. They can even buy it since my NFT costs just a fraction of what I would of paid them if I went through.
However, if you make a counter-offer and ask them to accept payment after the fact, they will just start sending meaningless endless messages and they will not stop till you block them.
These accounts and proposals, without a doubt, should not even be considered. In the best-case scenario, it will be a waste of time and money.
