If only we could snap our fingers and have thousands of followers, hundreds of sales and leads, and lots of engagement.
Ahhh that would be nice...right?
Well, yes you could simply make a few clicks and purchase hundreds of thousands of followers or even get thousands of likes right away for less than $20. But, that won't get you anywhere in the long run. Those bought followers or likes won't generate leads or make sales which is the end goal for all of us in business.
