Has your search engine ranking hit the wall? Trying to draw traffic your way online can be like searching for a clear path through a maze – time consuming, frustrating, and fruitless. Marketing service iLikeFollow offers a way to quickly grow your online social community, by helping you get Facebook fans and Twitter followers.
Earning followers and likes through iLikeFollow allows social media users and web publishers to generate real social traffic. No drone followers here. It hardly makes sense to build a following that will only see you buying attention. To avoid that social networking boondoggle, everyone using the iLikeFollow service has their own legitimate account. The doors are closed to spammers.
Sign up requires only your name and email address. Then connect to your existing accounts – Twitter, Facebook, websites – and begin to build your social presence. Buy credits which can be used to encourage people to follow your tweets or like your posts.
All onsite-following is strictly optional. There’s no obligation to buy credits, although doing so gives users a better chance of increasing their exposure. Set the number of points you’re willing to part with to increase your following.
Buy one-time credits, maybe if you’re looking to launch a single marketing campaign, or purchase a subscription if you plan to continue trying to build your sphere of influence. There are different packages available for those interested in just popping up on the radar, for maintaining modest contact, or targeting crowds often.
Founder Adonis AZ is also the Creative Director, blogger, and founder of twitsmag.com and other websites under the AAZ Group. Based in the Middle East, Adonis AZ recently shared more of his vision for iLikeFollow with KillerStartups.
What’s the very first thing you do at work everyday?
I wake up in the morning with my goal to build a billion-dollar business and take over the universe, then start drinking my morning coffee while planning out my day and reviewing my calendar.
How many people did you start the company with and how many people work for you now?
The company started recently with 3 partners selected according to their fields of expertise. Adding together online knowledge and creativity to marketing, sales experience to financial planning, and analysis, we’ve been able to form a small business with the intention of gaining a market share of global online business.
Remember the early days starting up? Maybe you can share some of the challenges that describe the struggle you went through?
Marketing, technology, and finance. Money is a paradox for small businesses; we started to make money, but we can’t make more money unless we have the money to fund the business from the beginning. So one of the major challenges we’ve faced was project funding. After some research and analysis, we’ve been able to fund the project.
How do you handle frustration? When/how was the last time you dealt with frustration?
Frustration is a part of our daily lives, especially when it comes to a project funded by loan. This project will never be just a hobby now. Instead, it will be considered a real business project where a long term business plan should include setups and targets done properly.
When do your best ideas come to you? Falling Asleep? During lunch? After working for 16 hours? While swimming?
While taking my shower in the morning – after long hours of working, brainstorming and analyzing. Ideas usually come up due to the hard time spent working.
How do you picture your company in 5 years?
5 years from now we see the project as one of the most successful projects in online business – serving social media users in an efficient manner. By that time, we believe that the company should be a global, medium-sized business consisting of a considerable number of specialized employees.
Who or what inspires YOU? Role models? Quotes? Running? Video games? Snack food?
Successful entrepreneurs inspire us the most. Seeing other people grow their companies reminds us that there is always a room for a successful idea in globalized business.
How’d you fund this venture? VC? Self-funding? Crowd-funded?
We’ve funded the project through a revolving loan mainly. After reaching certain previous targets, we will definitely look for other means to develop the business and grow. Crowd-funding would be considered as an option.
What sets your company apart from the competition?
Honestly, competition isn’t a major factor. Targeting a huge percentage of the population is a main factor of success. Reaching audiences and market education are two of the most important factors that we currently face.
What’s your largest satisfaction in business life?
I’m passionate about the journey and doing all that I can do to make our business grow. That’s what excites me. Knowing that there is always more to learn – and reaching the biggest numbers when I send out a message, which is the major role of iLikeFollow.
Do you consider yourself a successful entrepreneur right now? If not, what’s it gonna take to make you feel successful?
We definitely consider ourselves successful. Success and failure shouldn’t be measured by the success and failure of one only project. Many factors should be taken into consideration. Entrepreneurs experience a lot throughout their careers.
