I have to say, the more you immerse yourself in business, the more commercially-oriented you become. Do I shed a tear over this? No, not at all. Here, let me explain. Let me explain my sentiment, kind of show you where I’m coming from. Maybe you can relate. The thing is, I’ve always enjoyed being creative. And I’ve also always had that yearning to be as independent as possible. I am a unique specimen indeed. It used to irk me sometimes having to comply. But before going into business for myself, I had already been quite accustomed to years of service in a large multi-national set up which, as it turns out, went bust some years ago.
No readers, this is a true story, and maybe you’ve been through what I went through. Not knowing where you stood or why you always had to get it in the neck, you were given the dreaded pink slip. But this form of rejection, still happening a lot these days, is still your window of opportunity. Here is your chance to make it big on your own. But with a little help from your friends too, of course. No matter how resilient and resourceful you find yourself to be, you soon find yourself still having to rely on others to help propel your business forward.
But professional consultations, marketing and advertising work, internet-based tools and engineering have all come at a price. Not so easy to go forward when you are limited in your resources. Not so? Not so. Actually. Part of your marketing and advertising drive going forward means buying likes Instagram will sanction or approve of. These likes are soon to be coming from active professionals just like you.
Instagram is a professional service orientation, so by the time you have registered your first business account with them, for free, you too, are expected to behave as professionally as possible. And you can. It has been your dream to go pro, so now is your chance to play the part live. Just think, setting up your first marketing and advertising platform hasn’t been all bad. Yes, you spent your lunch money on buying likes and followers but what did it cost you to set up your Instagram platform? Pretty much zilch when you compare it to the conventional ways and means of setting up a small business.
And then just think what the Instagram network is gifting you with. All these so many tools and plugins, it’s like you were a really spoilt rotten child at Christmas time. But deserving of your gifts. You must have worked hard to get this far. And now you have all the help you can get. I don’t know about you, but this is an exciting time to be trying out for a business of your own. It’s the way of the future, so you may as well get used to it.
