Assignment: Your Last Five Followers

August 1, 2015



Here’s a little task for you to do over the next couple of days.

  • Head to your current social networking platforms.
  • Look for your most recently acquired followers.
  • Pick the FIVE most recent (avoiding anything that’s obviously spammy) followers.
  • Go and visit those followers pages/profiles – find out a little bit more about who they are and what they’re into.
  • Consider following them back.
  • Consider sharing some of the things they’ve posted.
  • Consider digging a bit deeper – visiting their websites/blogs (if they have one)
  • Get to know them – and consider WHY they are following you – what they might LIKE about you
  • If there’s not much on offer there – look to the next five. Keep looking until you find FIVE people you can relate to and admire.
  • Add those five to your list of pages/people to monitor and promote.
  • When you’re getting a bit stale, do this exercise again!

Let us know how you go with this – if you discover anyone/anything interesting – how it made you view your own work/profile.
