I’ve made it a point to try something new for at least a month. This past few weeks, I’ve decided to run a Twitter contest to increase my follower count. With a $25 Amazon gift card for new followers that would tweet about the contest, how could it fail?

Sadly, none of the new followers Tweeted.

As one Twit says, “people are so desperate, they have to bribe for followers.” This person was right on the money. Any followers from the contest are only in it for the contest and not interested in what you have to offer. So I am happy to mark this attempt as a failure.
