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.

The Kalendar

I pride myself on the fact that there should be absolutely no reason at all that you should ever not know what I'm up to or how to contact me.

You can find out what I'm up to and know exactly where I'll be from here. Use this ability wisely!

On this page you can also find a variety of ways to contact me, whether you want to IM me, email me or call me on the phone, you can do it by clicking on one of the buttons on the bottom of the page. Use this ability even more wisely!

In addition to that, there's also a little agenda on the sidebar of my blog. Basically, it's the Kalendar displayed as a list. You can know what I'm doing at a glance. Use this ability with a little less wisdom than the contact thing, but a little more wisdom than the Kalendar thing.
