Brian Moran has developed an impressive program being highly advertized on facebook that claims to get you 10,000 fans to your FB fan page. It has been heavily promoted and may be very tempting, however after searching into this a bit deeper, there is some controversy.
10,000 Fans Warning: There's a monthly fee for the program, and if you ever want to cancel the program, you will lose your facebook fanpage and all of your fans! SURE you want that risk?
Do you want your facebook fanpage under that much control? If you put huge amounts of work into a fanpage this way, they have massive control. What if you can no longer afford the monthly fees? or they raise the fees considerably? You can't change your mind later without losing the page and starting all over again.
Often promises of thousands of fans are just numbers, you may get the numbers but likely they are just empty accounts. You'll get no interaction from such fake accounts at all. Numbers may 'look' good, yet may be only for looks.
Some say that Moran also hypes this as 'his program' when it actually originated elsewhere. Learn more about this controversial program at the link below, a forum visited regularly by seasoned internet marketing pros.
