Visibility is everything online, so reaching thousands of people in an instant is something a lot of businesses crave.
This leads many brands to try sponsored messages, but do they actually work, and when they don’t work what’s the PR risk?
“I will share your messages twice over 150,000 Twitter followers and 10,000 Facebook friends to help boost your traffic views for $5” reads just one advert on Fiverr.com.
How can you lose? The seller has 299 positive reviews and 220 people have starred (liked) the service. Surely this is proof that sponsored messages work, right?
