I am relatively new here so I am not familiar with the etiquette around here. Now recently I gained new followers even though I did nothing and I just wanted to ask if it is common for people to just go around and follow any (AudioJungle) author they can find? Maybe in hopes of getting a follow back? Does the follower count even mean anything?
Authors/buyers follow you because they might have liked your item and wants to stay updated with your future item releases or updates.
Follower count doesn’t mean/reveal anything. There is a limit of 2000 followers that can follow you.
People follow authors to maintain an interest in other authors work…sometimes authors follow authors based on sales success and sometimes authors follow to have a profile on others profiles - strange really!
At first I thought people were following you in real life!
No, but seriously folks, what’s the problem with any followers? Whatever the reason they follow me, I don’t care. I always follow back. In fact, I used to follow newbies posting on the forum (not now of course without any link back) without even listening to their tracks, but just to help boost up their followers. Aren’t I nice?
The only time I worry about followers is when I lose one. I always think “Now, what have I said or done?”
