This morning I read a report provided by Hubspot that since last July Facebook has grown by over half a million users a day! If you are looking to put that into prospective that is the equivalent to the city of Boston signing up for new accounts every day! Absolutely incredible growth for the social media monolith, this means that the overall user base of Facebook has grown from 125 million to a whopping 350 million – DOUBLED in less than a year!
Hubspot made an interesting comment in their article this morning, they said: “nothing draws a crowd like a crowd” just like when you are on the highway and there is someone stuck on the side of the road or their is an accident all the traffic slows down to see what’s up. This is why as a business we need to be mobile and agile, to be able to continue to create interesting content and information that gets the masses to slow down and see what all the commotion is about. In an essence this is what social media marketing is all about, but it only works if you have something worth while for people to investigate.
This is the way FirstTracks is approaching Facebook with our business, and we can help you do this with yours. It takes a bit of research, planning, and commitment to make it happen, but once you get it rolling you will have a content following and lead generation machine the likes of which you have never seen!
