Social Media Growth Takes Time
As social media experts, we hear it often, “How can I make my Facebook page grow?” or “How can I get 10,000 new followers in 2 days?”. We live in fast paced society and when we see KickStarter campaigns reach millions of dollars in just a matter of days, we make the assumption that quick numbers and attainable growth can happen overnight for any and everyone. However, this isn’t the case. For many businesses, organic growth takes time. This isn’t the answer that many people want to hear but it is the reality in which we live in. Yes, of course you can purchase followers if your numbers matter to you more than engagement do, but keep in mind that potential followers may catch on to this. Valuing quality over quantity can only benefit you in the long run.
Think of it this way…would you rather throw a party of 100 attendees who you never get a chance to speak to or would you rather have 5 close attendees that you can network with and have a good time with? Many would pick the latter as we all find that great thoughts and ideas come from meaningful conversations. Think of your Facebook Fan Page or Twitter page as the same thing. Your voice has the ability to reach many people but ideally, you would want those people to engage with you. You would want them to retweet your content, like your posts and visit your website for additional information about what you do.
Growing and cultivating a strong social media audience will not happen as quickly as you may like, but consistency in posting and providing your audience with your natural tone means that you are on your way to growing your a nice and strong social media presence.
