In the television profession, they say it takes 5 seconds to grab the attention of a viewer flipping channels. If you are able to keep the attention, then you've done your job. There are so many channels to chose from and with so many television stations vying for attention, the competition to win the loyalty and viewership of people isn't easy. To achieve this, you've got to have interesting content, variety, standard etc.

I'll let you in on a tip. Follow as many "influencers" as you can. People relevant to your business who have already made names for themselves. Say, you follow as much as a 100,000 of them. The moment you post, they see it. If out of all of them 10% click like on your picture... all their followers see it and can decide to check you out. That can translate into potential customers or even followers making it easy for you to grow your business.
whatever you're selling, you can expand your business online and reach farther than you already are.
So the next time you your fixing to make a post.... know that, that, may be that one chance, that opportunity worthy of grabbing the attention and business you need.
Until next time... stay inspired.
