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.

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.
