Thanking for the follow is a quite common practice especially among consultants, communication experts or people working in public relations. Still, I find it hard to see the added value in “thanking for the follow.” Let’s break it down:
- You display engagement with your audience.
- You acknowledge and digitally “reward” your new followers, giving them “social currency.”
- You look kind and friendly.
- You look like you’re trying to sell a second-hand car.
Acknowledging your network is absolutely golden, but is thanking for the follow the right way to do so?
