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.

After all the functionality is in place, we'll start working on a log-in feature so you can register on the Kerussopolis to automatically post comments on episodes and movies and showcase your own artwork.

And I'm sure you've noticed the Games section.

So, obviously, these games are still under development, but once they're finished I know they'll be quite enjoyable. Maybe Becky'll jump in on the game developing action, too. Either way, this section will probably take a while to develop. Keep coming back to see when we have some time-wasters available for you to play! As an added bonus, when both the games and the log-in features are ready there will be stats from other users to which you may attain!

So, yeah, this is all very exciting. Now if I could just get Becky out of Azeroth.
