Why Slow and Steady Wins the Race in Social Media

A lot of the times, new business pop up and their owners are so excited about this new venture that they think they need to see quick growth on social media. This mindset may lead them to make some rash decisions such as buying followers or spending too much on ads. And it may look impressive to investors to have gained over 1,000 followers in under a month, but savvy investors know there's more to it than that. And the day-to-day consumer probably won't even pay attention.

Let's get this out of the way right at the front: Do not buy followers. No one knows for sure, but it's estimated that about 15% of social media accounts are bots. That's 15% of about 3 billion.

But take heart! Episode Ten is on the horrizon. The stage is set, the extra characters are made and the dialog is recorded! I have officially changed the grouping name of these episodes to "Volume" instead of "Season" since they haven't been coming out as regularly as I'd hoped. But be assured that this one will be worked on as much as possible.

. . . If I only didn't have to worry about an actual job . . .


  1. JOBs are rough... but its money...cant complain about that...unless... you are overworked and underpaid!!!

  2. Wait, what?! This isn't my fault this time!
