Choose wisely. Only two are possible at once. šŸ‘‡

Once upon a time, I worked in the marketing/advertising agency world. We would tell our clients they could choose how they wanted their project completed.

Pick 2:

  • Good
  • Fast
  • Cheap

You can’t have all three.

→ If you want something fast and cheap, it’s not going to be as good.
→ If you want something good and cheap, it’s not going to happen fast.
→ If you want something good and fast, it’s not going to be cheap.

See how that works?

Building a social media audience follows the same framework. 

→ If you want to grow your platform fast and cheap, you can pay for followers but they won’t be good (or even real people).
→ If you want to grow your platform fast and want good followers, you have to pay for things like sponsored posts and advertising.
→ If you want good followers and don’t have the money to spend, it’s not going to happen fast.

Slow and steady will get you there. Patience is key.
