Farmville a game very popular on Facebook, is pulling in the people and the advertiser.
My partner of 19 years loves the game on Facebook known as Farmville. She plays that game daily. She has about 200 plus friends on
that not very many people were responding to things I would post. Yet it was not only what I posted, it was also happening, (or not
So I began to ask, why is it that my partner always gets people on her page to interact? What is making her so popular amongst her crew?
Well as she and I talked the answer came to me “FARMVILLE”. It’s the games. Facebook created a game that has pulled in a group of
people that live for the game.
So I looked into more facts about my theory. I did a search on Fritolay to see how many people like them. Their just chips and snacks
Well to my surprise over 2 million people on facebook like them. Then I find out that Fritolay offered a truck to the Farmville
community in exchange for a LIKE. So that leads me to believe that Fritolay paid Facebook or someone else to be a part of this game so
that they could attract a fan base. HMMM. Pay to Play.
So I wondered if Fritolay had not done this would they still have as many likes as they do? I seriously doubt it. This type of marketing is
done all the time.
I bring this up to make a point to the indie artist community and those that follow or don’t follow them. Big business can afford to pay
If you are looking to pull the attention of the masses to you as an entertainer, you are going to need to understand these tricks and
others and duplicate them on a low scale budget. Not every indie artist can afford ads, promotions, or services that will help get their
name out. Therefore you are going to need to find a way to bring the attention of the audience your way using similar methods.
The reality of it all is if you want to make it to the top of the list QUICKLY you are going to have to Pay in order to Play.
