I truly believe there is VALUE and POWER in being authentic, especially in today’s social media and in your business.
I have been wanting to create this post and crystal grid all week, so I made a point to include it in today’s blog post. 🙂
All over social media, and Instagram in particular I see feeds that are following thousands of people, liking tons of posts, and leaving comments that don’t really “fit”. These are feeds that are not only run by people trying to bring a larger following to their feed, but automated bots that have been connected to the feed to post, like and comment automatically, as a strategy to gain new followers.
Let me be even more HONEST! 🙂 I have actually visited and researched these bots, and have considered using them for my own Instagram! After some additional thought, I happily opted against the idea, even though I want to reach as many people as I can, because I WANT TO HELP OTHERS and make a difference. Could bots bring more followers to my page? Sure! But… there is always a trade off… In this case, I would be sacrificing my authenticity. That to me, is not a trade that I am willing to make. I find much higher value in smaller numbers, with real relationships over a higher number of followers and missed connection.
If you have a feed that is run with bots, this post is NOT meant to make you feel bad. I understand who you choose to use them! You want to reach people to, and there is no shame in that! I do however want to give props for people who do not use bots to increase their followers!
I like authentic people who run honest businesses, and succeed by building and contributing to real and genuine relationships. That is exactly what I want to do with mine! 🙂 Like attracts Like. I know that if I put out love and authenticity, I will attract loving and authentic people, and we will continue to bring value to one another through our powerful and true connections! Just the thought of that goal makes me beam with joy and excitement!
If you are of the same mindset and have the same goal for your feed and business, re-post this photo as a way to share your love and authenticity with others!
I support you and celebrate you and want to see your feed flourish! I KNOW that your efforts to be true to your heart and vision will be rewarded with joy and abundance!
