Using Social Media To Go On Charitable Drive

I have my own business. Do you? If not, there are many tips online to teach you how to get this drive off of the ground. You may have heard by now, but one of the best ways to push your new biz forward is to go on a social media drive. How did you know this? You may already have your own social media page.

If you haven’t, get going then. You can choose a network but I’d like to recommend that you use Instagram, one of the world’s leading platforms. I’m recommending it to you because it’s just so easy. It only takes a few minutes to create a decent profile page and you don’t have to write too much about yourself if the writing’s not your thing.

More importantly, Instagram is quite effective for helping you gain market traction.

Writing’s definitely my craft and I’ve used Instagram at will to get many of my own followers Instagram linked. I’m a publisher by trade and I’m helping youngsters promote their work. Many of these youngsters don’t have a penny to their name. They’ve just left school or are saddled with hefty college loans to pay off.

And while you’re struggling to find a worthwhile job to help you get this monkey off your back and make ends meet, why not just go right ahead and start your own company. You’d be surprised what you can achieve with your followers Instagram app. That, of course, is easy to download too.

I’ll continue encouraging the youth to study, though. In order to make inroads towards a successful career path, you need to study. Today, you can even study online too. While you are doing your homework assignments late at night, you can go into your Instagram chatrooms and have a conversation on problematic areas of your work.

Yes, it isn’t easy to make a decent living today. But one of the rewards of being in business for yourself is being able to do something you are passionate about. Fair enough, the money’s not much to write home about in the beginning. But be patient, material rewards do come later. This is one of the fundamental rules of being a successful entrepreneur. And you need to be resilient while riding out the storm.

Now, if it wasn’t for my landlady, I might not have been able to have a roof over my head that I could afford. This lady has love in her heart. And she’s got no less than three passions she’s crazy about. One being she’s a work at home mom. Although it’s hard at times, she enjoys being her own boss. Two, she’s passionate, almost obsessed even, with her tablet and her social media connections.

Walk anywhere in the streets of our neighbourhood, day or late at night, and you never see her without her tablet. Finally, she’s managed to use her social media experience very well to start up her big charity drive.

Buying into Social Media, Positively Speaking

Think positively when buying followers for the first time. For many of you, this is a strange territory.  And you are hesitant. The concept of buying followers for your Instagram, Facebook or other social media favorite is not foreign.

The purpose behind buying your followers, likes and comments is universal. Long before social media was the big bang theory it is today, large-scale and even small to medium sized businesses had been in on this act. A good example would be inviting both loyal and new shoppers to subscribe to a weekly or monthly newsletter.

And having ‘bought’ into the company this way, customers are rewarded for their loyalty by way of ‘members only’ discounts and special offers, and the like. So, hesitant readers, are you breathing a little easier now?

Well, if you are still skeptical at this time, and I can hardly blame you because I have been where you are right now, then it goes without saying that you haven’t entirely got the full picture just yet. Just the other day, I was asked by my editor to give a short talk on the perceptively dubious practice of buying Instagram followers as opposed to just waiting for them to roll in.

It led me to reflect back on my previous experience. And perhaps it isn’t a bad idea to remind readers to practice the art of being positive. Because, what do they say? Positive things happen to positive people. Like gaining more followers. Generally speaking, people do have a tendency to carry negative perceptions about subjects, online content, products and services they know very little about. And in the heat of the moment, perhaps it was a stressful day at the office, the tendency leans very much towards subjectivity and being over-judgmental.

And of course, not enough people out there are familiar with the concept of buying followers on Instagram. Had they bothered to do what every other successful entrepreneur will be doing on any given day, all would have been well by now. This is your R & D people, your research and development. Not hard to do. It’s basically making a little extra time for extensive and careful reading, in this case, on the concept and philosophies of buying followers, likes and comments, as opposed to just waiting for them organically (yes, that would be the right word).

When you purchase Instagram followers in manageable and realistic increments, a genuine following, let’s just say; follows. And over time, so long as the marketing campaign continues and Instagram posting is regular (it does not have to be every day but it needs to be consistent) the numbers, that is to say, the numbers of real Instagram followers will grow.

Numbers depend on your location too. When composing your marketing and advertising copy, be specific about what you are offering your customers. You will be putting up pictures of what you have produced. It is vivid and leaves nothing to the imagination. They can almost taste and smell it.

Figuratively speaking of course.
