Who uses it?
Tom Hirst, a programming and freelancing expert, and a great writer. He’s your go-to for freelancing-related content.
Why does it work?
This works because Tom has the experience (and numbers) to back it up.
I made this (SOCIAL PROOF)
Here’s what I learned
Usually, these threads do really well. There is no one who doesn’t want to hear an expert’s secrets and lessons. Especially if he’s talking about how he makes money.
How can you use it?
Social proof is the secret sauce of this type of thread. Why should people trust what you say? How can you back it up?
Money, clients, users, followers… Any will do.
Don’t worry if your number isn’t that high. “How I got 100 followers in 1 week” will be appealing for someone who has 0 followers.
What’s obvious to you, can be amazing to others.
