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? It does right up until you realize that bots aren't buying your products or telling any real people about you. You could make the case that the high number of foll…

Who am I?

Well maybe I'm not a tomato, but if not then who the heck am I? I am Nick Parham. I have been writing and blogging for a while now, it is a fun hobby and a real stress reliever. See I have frequented this blog and yes there are great articles on Sci-fi (SYFY WTH?) and just straight up news on whats new with the people in the industry.

Movies, music, video games and words are my forte. False environments, new settings, new people and new worlds can be explored with a little film or a few words, and the bounderies are within your imagination... no they are your imagination and I believe that the imagination is the key to the human brain, the thing that holds us back or sets us apart.

Back on track, I am Nick Parham, movie theater employee, avid pc gamer, reader and writer and I believe that I am here to blog because well, I have the know. Television shows are my main focus, I have watched over 150 series, every episode from old to new. I have worked at a movie theater for three long grueling years now, and looking back I dont regret a moment of it. I have seen the hottest, newest, freshest movies out there right on release and it has given me a new outlook on movies, why watch only one genre you like, when there are so many good movies out there?

Well its time to get ready for work, I should have pre-ordered my iPhone 3Gs today but obviously my hours at work didnt think so, so that must wait! as will you for my next post.

I am looking forward to writing more nonsensical BS here often, maybe think over my words before I type them next time but hey its early and work is on its way.
