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. So, if you had every bot on Twitter following you, it would bring your follower count up to about 450 million. Sounds impressive, right?

Burton's Wonderland

I heard about Tim Burton doing an Alice in Wonderland quite a while ago. Of course Mr. Depp was first choice for the Mad Hatter. But images are just now coming out via USA Today of his concept art for the movie. It will be a sequel of the original story with Alice having grown up to the age of 17. She finds out that some guy is going to propose to her, so she runs away where the White Rabbit finds her and brings her down his rabbit hole once more to a land she doesn't remember at all.

The creatures of Wonderland, who used to live in a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen took over, are ready to revolt and they want Alice to help them (since she did such a wonderful job the first time around). I assume they want to give power back to the White Queen who is Anne Hathaway in an "eccentric," "over-the-top" roll. In stead of walking, the White Queen hovers around.

Johnny Depp is the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway is the White Queen and the part of the Red Queen is played by another Burton staple, Helena Bonham Carter. Alice will be played by a young actress by the name of Mia Wasikowska, seen here taking a break on set in-costume.

Head on over to the USA Today article to see Carter and Hathaway along with some stunning zoomable and panable concept images of Wonderland featuring the White Rabbit, some flowers with faces and the Tweedle brothers!
