To Buy Or Not To Buy, That Been The Social Media Question

My editor had this to say about the composition of my blog post headings. It is fair to say that this is one important aspect of her editorial functions. She has to keep a tight lid on how writers like myself structure our creative prose in favour of attracting attention from thousands of regular visitors to our mutual clients’ local internet service providers. Because it is going to be published on the internet, the blog post or article has to be kept to a minimum.

This is because the various search engines’ algorithmic programs have a tendency to seek out text with a limited number of characters in a single line. So much for being creative and wanting to say what you feel needs to be said. What I wanted to do was address the hesitancy that many readers (and writers) and independent startup entrepreneurs are dealing with every day. I feel as though I can do a good job of it.

Because I can speak from experience. I can relate humanely to what many of you may be going through. Sometimes even, your conscience will be troubled. You are not sure whether what you are doing on the practical level is ethical. You want to get likes on Instagram, and this troubles you too, because no matter how positive a picture you portray, you do not seem to be gaining enough traction.

Not nearly enough that you feel could do your marketing and advertising campaign a just and successful cause. Successful translates to newly acquired clients and cash conversions. Not only have you got the business but you’ve been paid handsomely too. All in all, you will have all experienced that this is something that takes a while to achieve. The dilemma that many of you are faced with is time.

You need to make money as quickly as possible. You do not have the resources yet to ride out those lean times. And, quite frankly, you have had more than enough of those proverbial bread and butter days, jam or jelly too, if you were lucky. The moral dilemma has to do with whether or not to buy, in this case, to buy Instagram likes and followers, something which you dearly need. Make a note that the same principle applies if you are campaigning from a different social media platform.

This could be Facebook, Instagram’s parent, or the granddaddy of them all, YouTube. I prefer Instagram’s format. Not only is it as versatile as the other platforms, it’s truly easy to operate and maintain. This coming from a guy who never knew how to work with tools, apps, software and the like. This coming from a gentleman whose only talent was with pen, paper and his words. But what use would it have been if no-one was reading it?

And after I overcame my hesitancy, I went in and bought some real likes. The rest, as they say, is history.
