Well well, well! What do we have here? A preventive measure to heartache for business owners. This happens when you are unable to reach your clients, fanbase or online community on social media. In order words, The best alternatives for marketing your business online. This blog post was inspired from a recent crash on Instagram. Many thought their accounts had been hacked and panic did set in. The same thing happened a few weeks back with Facebook. I tried to access my account and it asked me to log in again. A few moments after, I got the message below from Facebook which is a huge red flag.
With these experiences, I began to wonder what would happen to my online business should social media shut down today. Quite frankly, some people are still struggling to grow their community on Instagram and Facebook. Many have no other business pages asides from these 2 and the fear that these could crash all of a sudden is one too worrisome. I remember seeing the CEO of a weightloss page I follow, ask people what they would do should Instagram crash. I thought they were talking about these alternatives I am about to give you but no! They were speaking of other jobs they could do offline. I hope they do stumble on this blog post and ensure that their businesses are independent of Mark and his team.
