We all want to connect

Social media has become a part of our daily routine, or it has been for a decade. You all should know that it is a fact of the internet that everything you click, view, buy and input is tracked somewhere so it puts you into a certain category. This is so that people who use social media for business, can target a certain audience.

To some this might seem creepy, but this way, anyone with access to a computer with internet connection can create their own business without large investment.

Expand your reach

You can grow you Twitter and Instagram accounts with Crowdfire.

Although Crowdfire is just a tool. Get ready, a proven tactic on how to grow your social media accountis about to be revealed.

You connect with as many people as you can, that are interested in your niche.

You follow, add, like etc. And some chunk of all those people who you tried to connect with will follow, add… you back.

It is important to keep in mind that, if you gather up people, in your follower section, who are not interested in what you might offer in the future, you won’t see so great results as you would, if you would try to socialize with people who would be.

Seems quite logical, doesn’t it?

Here are some numbers to blow your mind, just how much social media has grown over the years. And not only that these numbers are rising, but they grow with even faster rate everyday.

  • There are 1 million active mobile users, who create a social media account every day
  • Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp alone handle over 60 billion messages a day

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
