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…

Apologies and Guitar Hero

I apologize for my long absence! It's been crazy. But now I'm here and all is well in the world!

I have a small rant to solidify my return! Guitar Hero 5. Does it annoy anyone else that there was never a Guitar Hero 4??? I'll admit to saying Guitar Hero 4 when referring to World Tour though I despised myself for it having corrected countless people when the said Call of Duty 5. "It's not Call of Duty 5! It's World at War!! It's not a true sequel, it just has Grand Theft Auto syndrome!!!"

It's exceptionally frustrating when I'm at work (good ole GameStop!) and I pull up a search for Guitar Hero games and I get the following:

Guitar Hero
Guitar Hero 2
Guitar Hero III
Guitar Hero 5
Guitar Hero World Tour

And then the many other titles they've released. It's also annoying that they switch from numbers to roman numerals but that's a different issue entirely. Don't think I'm hating on GH, either. I played that game religiously when 2 first came out and almost died when I got the Red Ring just before Legends of Rock came out. World Tour was a bit disappointing in comparison with Rock Band but what can you do? It is GUITAR Hero, afterall. End rant.
