Keep Your Social Media Heading Short

Marketing and advertising is a family tradition. Not in the sense that I am referring to a family owned business. But I may as well be because the subject matter of this post is relevant. It will be relevant to you if you are the co-proprietor of a family registered business. Or sole owner. Many of you reading this right now may be famously classed as this generation’s millennials.

A majority of readers will have a short span of attention whilst reading material from their smartphones or laptops for all the obvious and understandable reasons. Instagram, as you should know, is more focused on making a visual impact. Keeping all things relevant, this is how to get real followers on Instagram.

It’s not the only way, of course. There are many more that you can read about and practice with on your current profile page. Always just remember to keep on posting on a regular basis, yet another way to gain traction on your network and earn the support of new followers.

You will be surprised to learn that there are smart algorithms that look out for photographic or graphically designed images over and above the convention of just posting text. Instagram wasn’t designed for just words. And you’ll be pleased to know that it’s an effective device to keep your prose short. Keep your headings short and keep these relevant to your pic’s.

I may as well tell you that this detection process of picking out and foregrounding graphic impressions on search engines is not quite as effective as it is with the text. But with further advancements in software technologies, this process will become more effective and quicker too. Returning to how algorithms respond to published text, it responds to published posts’ headings too. But if the heading is far too long, it tends to lose the thread, if you will.

In keeping your heading relevant to your Instagram photographs, you can work on a really striking title. Keep it short and sweet and attract the notice of curious minds. Curious minds also have a thing with numbers. They’ll want to know why one particular platform, it could be yours, has so many followers. There’s this perception that something grand and great must be happening. Or is it the product.

And that’s the challenge to you. To work hard at keeping up the quality of your regular posting so that these folks will become avid followers too.

Now, to speed things up, I encourage you to buy your Instagram followers. Do not worry about stigma’s and misconceptions attached to this. Just know that many successful startups have gathered steam in this manner. And the rich and famous have been doing it for years already, long since before this young upstart, otherwise known as Instagram, arrived on the scene. Speaking of which, there is the matter of my family.

Which means I have to go. Good luck with your work.

From Cynic To Eternal Optimist On Social Media

I can go on a tangent. Fortunately, this post is a mere 500 words long or so. So, while I could tell you the story of my life from a number of angles, I’ll have to keep my focus and stick to my selected heading. Short of words, I punch in a heading based on earlier thoughts. And then I work my prose from that angle. I was correlating my tendency to be a tad too negative at times and how it affected me in the past, with my earlier doubts about SM.

Fortunately, I’m a passionate reader and it wasn’t long before I was able to dispel any old doubts I had about SM. And to be sure, the more you read, the more you learn. For instance, little did I know that SM is the acronym that refers directly to social media. So, forgive me if I’ve been showing this off in my opening lines. And Insta is short for Instagram. FB is short for Facebook, and so on and so forth.

For a long time, I wracked my brain on how I was going to gain more Instagram followers while at the same time getting more people to formally like my regular posts. I had my doubts about purchasing my followers and likes too. I used to believe that when in doubt, don’t go there. But of course it’s true that you need to find out the why’s of your doubts before making a good decision. I never needed to doubt the quality of my work.

And the quality of my Insta-pics is getting better too. Also, I soon discovered that my initial purchase of Instagram followers and likes was a veritable springboard to start getting real people to start following my work and liking it.

Today, you’ve got your own mobile. Whether still at school or stuck in a dead-end job, you can start thinking along the lines of starting up your own business. You’re familiar with YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and all the rest of them, and if you’re on Instagram like many people today, you’ll always be thinking of new ways to get more Instagram followers to like you. Typical stuff guys and girls like you are doing is sending out real zany pic’s so everyone out there can have a real guffaw.

For a few moments, you’re the centre of the social media universe.

I have to say, many guys and girls out there are streets ahead of me. They never feared all these strange gizmos and gadgets that I could never get the hang of. Today, I’m in. Sure enough, I’m posting a lot less than you guys are. And that’s the point I’d like to close off with. It’s great to have your social media but I reckon it’s also healthy to switch off every now and then. Which is why I like to leave my phone at home when I head out for a while.

Crazy, huh.
