The numbers game. No successful business thrives without it. Large multinationals have been playing the game for years. Medium-sized companies get to that level contracting in the services of professional number crunchers if they have not yet got the financial resources to employ said skilled men and women with good heads for figures on a fulltime basis. Small businesses tag along trying to play the game, just to stay afloat.
The self-starting entrepreneur, usually just a one man (or one woman) operation has to steer the boat with a lot less resources. It can be quite challenging, but it wouldn’t be worth the while if it wasn’t. In any case, with just the laptop, a reliable hard-drive with scanning device attached, the latest software updates and buying 100 Instagram followers, the work from home small business practitioner has so much power at his or her fingertips.
Let alone registering for an Instagram account on the internet, why the purchasing of substantial numbers of followers, and for that matter, likes, comments, and other unique or popular features distinguishable with the social media plan. This can be briefly explained. In fact, depending on the course of business and the nature thereof, there could be many explanations and motivations, but briefly put, this automatic display of followers, comments and likes on platform, profile and regular posts is a marketing ploy through and through.
In fact, it has been in existence long before social media was ever the byword or social curse it has become for social and productive commercial life that it is today. The purchases address social perceptions and its fickle (human) nature. It is perceived that high rates of ‘popularity’ deems that the business is often doing rather well for itself and, indeed, is able to offer the online consumer better than average products, services and (financial) returns.
But unfortunately this is not always the case. Which is why both consumer and entrepreneur need to embrace this practice with just a degree of caution. The onus is on them to make the practice work in their favor. And it is up to them to put into place numerous other tools and practices, all depending on the kind of businesses they are running and promoting. Hence this suggestion list of tasks to help you increase the numbers recorded under your platform, also bearing in mind that all and sundry needs to be ‘active’.
A dedicated hashtag needs to be displayed under alternative profiles. The creation thereof needs to be done creatively and inventively. Research (and development) of trending hashtags is an essential requirement of your marketing business, no matter how striking you may believe your series of hashtags to be. The platform’s bio link needs to be used to direct traffic to latest or most popular content. Captions always need to be descriptive and coherent, and it is a standard practice of online marketing life to be interacting with leading influencers in your niche area or field of interest.
