For instance, here are the numbers for a band I work with. I also took this screen shot today. I have not spent money boosting the band's posts. Ninety-four thousand followers and over 6,000 people engaged.
> Download an album
> Buy a concert ticket
> Buy band merchandise
> Share a post with their friends
> Tell people about your new song
What is sad is that some venue owners get tricked into booking bands based solely on their number of followers and then wonder why they can't sell any tickets. What is more sad is that the band that artificially inflated its numbers starts to believe the illusion themselves ... and also wonders why they can't sell any tickets.
