Grow A Network of Social Media Followers

How To: Grow A Network of Social Media Followers...

Back in 2013-2014 we sat down with Inland Finder ... The company had some 234 followers on twitter and about 300 friend likes on Facebook... It had also only purchased the www.ladysmith.info domain and had approached us to Web Design and Search Engine Optimize. With our little and fresh knowledge Live Lab steadied on full steam with boastful confidence


Excited about the new Startup we called 10 local well established businesses to advertise on the www.ladysmith.info domain. 9 of them told us to F#%&Off they are not interested as they are paying the local newspapers.... Confidence smacked down within a few hours... Boomed... Bashed and Broken...

So we sat down with Inland Finder and explained to them that we are dealing with a Donkey Years ago advertising Dynamic. These businesses are NOT advanced and people still have Nokia 3310's. They have mediocre facebook pages and no clue about twitter.



The company... Not to be outdone by sharks sniffing around... Purchased 2 more .info domains... making a total of 3...

www.ladysmith.info - www.amajuba.infowww.estcourt.info ....

Basically the 3 adjacent towns next to Ladysmith .... In a rare twist of Luck Inland Finder had approached Geo Solutions to advertise.... Geo Solutions was not happy with the Local Advertising as their reach was local. The company saw potential as made an offer to purchase Inland Finder. The offer was accepted and the new bosses insisted that rural areas be tagged. Geo Solutions provided Live Lab Design with a list of areas that the company operates and we tagged these areas to the Key Words...

Numerous Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc accounts fell under our Social Media Management and the responsibility to grow their following was enormous.

We only followed back mostly and saw steady progress... We also only retweeted and shared verified links, stayed away from news and focused primarily on happy build a life for yourself content. Most of our following was farm and small town people. Rural Entrepreneur Development...

People began to Notice... More importantly Inland Finder's following grew... The company had found some good local businesses with the added trust. 



So we did not feel so bad about all the data blown and costs spent in theory and development. Facebook nor Google or Twitter can control the internet. It can control your feed but sooner or later something or someone smarter comes along. Betting on them is like betting on Nokia back then. The wonder of evolution and time. However these two giants seem stable minded and look like they will be around for some time so we going for the safety and give them the Thumbs Up. Similar to a Nokia they did the Job and Seldom Break. The sponsored posts are an awesome feature. 



We also began following followers of interest, retweeting, sharing other businesses and influencers content. everyone has a story to tell. So our follower counts are wonkey and we Love IT.. 


Time, Patience and Real Content that makes a difference and changes peoples lives... As you cannot milk skinny cows... You first have to Fatten them up...
