Buying Views and Terms of Service

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:31 am

If you’re trying to get your mixtape on Datpiff even more exposure, did you know that you can actively buy Datpiff views? I had no idea until a friend of mine pointed it out to me the other day but I should have been aware of this from the start. More and more services that utilize a users views as a way to calculate how much money they should be paid are beginning to crop up. Everything from YouTube, Instagram, Twitch and Facebook has a service that is associated with the platform allowing users to buy views, likes or shares.

Personally, I think this is a poor business model in the long run. If you are not personally providing high quality content resulting in genuine clicks or views that result in your content being engaged in via social media, then depending upon a third party service to deliver you your income is only going to set you back in the long run. There’s no way to make a profitable exchange of buying views to what you’re going to be paid out per view. However, it is a good medium to use to help increase exposure if you’re finding difficulty gaining a foothold.

I’ve used the service several times with myself with nothing but good things. A word of warning; it is entirely possible that the Terms of Services may not allow this kind of bot-like behavior from its users. Several services that currently exist will out right ban an account that has been caught using these pay-for-views or clicks – it happened to me once already through Twitch whewhich I knew was a risk to take in the first place. Remember to read your Terms of Service (ToS) and know what you are agreeing to before you decide to buy views.
