Digi Dos & Don'ts #1: Grow your following online, the right way.

Jan 28, 2021


Gone are the days when having tens of thousands of followers was the biggest indicator of success on a social platform. Thankfully, these days it’s all about quality, not quantity. Who is following you and whether or not they’re considered your target market, versus any stranger on the internet just to get your numbers up. 

While it’s better to have a genuine following, numbers still count, because at the end of the day the more core customers you have in your audience, the more people you have to tell about your amazing products and services.

This leads to owners not knowing what works or what doesn’t work, sucks time and energy that they would rather be spending on doing what they love, and basically leads to a waste of money and a huge amount of frustration.

If any of this sounds familiar, I highly recommend you take a step back… and that “step back” involves creating a strategic marketing plan. Developing a marketing strategy is your best chance at success, and here’s why.
