    Hello guys, this journey is because this community has gave so much to my internet marketing life. So I want to pay back somehow.
    I already grew 1 facebook fanpage to 1.8 millions hispanic fans mostly hispanic, on the Science and Technology niche so I want to repeat this process and observe how organic growth from good content can influence.
    What I am going to do about content.
    1. Make a benchmark from accounts of SM (Social media) from the same niche.
    2. You need to like the niche you are going to grow, else its kinda doomed to repeat viral content without giving some personal spice.
    3. I might use content from Tumblr in FB and Pinterest in TUmblr, and so forth. I will try to give all credit to proper direct creators.
    4. Make all Social Media accounts and give their style, covers, fill up details and start posting content I like about the niche using proper hashtags.

    Strategy to get noticed:
    1. Be consistent and keep perseverance, someday, sooner or later a big fanpage gives you a re-feed and they will pull you up on fans, guaranteed.
    2. Post real nice content, since Im going to focus on the Marketing niche (very wide, from digital to propaganda design and strategies.) Im very happy I now have the time to continue with this project.
    3. I will also create nice mashups on the blog. Ive made some personal benchmarks on different tools and can share them. Many visitors will feel grateful and somehow buy membership on the site to thanks and use our goodies.

    Objectives at short sight:
    • Rise to 10k fans in Facebook, 10k fans tumblr, 5k Google+ and 2k subs on YT. Everything will be organic with proper use of hashtags, tagging, tags, titles, etc.

    Kinds of methods to boost: Will be very frustrating to wait for traffic or a like without boosting somehow, my best bet is to buy shares, mentions, refeeds, etc. Instead of buying likes, followers and that stuff. We are concentrating in ORGANIC METHODS. Not traffic and cheap stuff. I have to work on intense content.
    • Fiverr: I will look for different sellers and check their impact, Will give 5 days of watching behaviours and then I will proceed with other seller.
    • Contacting social networks directly: I will contact directly different pages to find if they sell re-feeds, reshares, re-tweets, etc also adding URLs from blog posts on their content... (If I need to build a tool to automate this I will do it and will get a BST and get support from selling it to keep the journey.)
    • Paying CPM reach on Facebook: Last page I grew I payed $1 per post, then I watched 20 of those posts. The 5 that got more likes from that reach were the ones I needed to focus for the next content. So then I made 20 posts and applied $1 to each for different target marketing.
    • Groups Marketing: Google+ Communities and Facebook Groups mainly. I will share many goodies and nice content to get reputation on that field everything real and organic.

    I will define my next moves on the next posts, keep following up. I might built up many tools for this journey. If users here help me with suggestions for tools and build them I will give a nice affiliate unique share. Many ideas will come and I will focus on managing properly hiring developers that support me on updating all of this tools.

    Let me know what you think on this guys.

    Ok, well here is my second day report after working 5 hours on this.
    I created a Tumblr page:
    http://marketingmall.tumblr.com And as you can see I uploaded some nice gifs about advertising/marketing niche.
    I bought a fiverr for Tumblr promotion and told the seller to choose the most viral post he things and reblog.

    On Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MarketingMallnet/ I created this page a year ago. But I had it without nice and viral content, I just changed the gameplay by posting nice content apart from news and updates from Marketing Mall.

    Facebook promotion is quite very expensive now, back then 3 years ago. $1 USD could reach up to 4,500 people. Now is this:
    [​IMG]
    Thats very expensive for me, I prefer paying promotion, I will need to find the correct candidate for promotion and stick with him 10 promotions on Facebook, 10 promotions on Tumblr.

    Whats left to do:
    Create Google+ Page
    Create Google+ Community
    Create Facebook Group
    Create Pinterest
    Update Twitter

    I will let you know my reports. If you suggest a format an order please let me know.

    Here is what happend in Tumblr after waiting some days of reaction of the posts I added:
    [​IMG]
    That was after buying a gig. Someone gave a reblog.
    The effect of reblogs/notes is very powerful with only 1 gig if you choose the correct page. I will try another supplier since I think I can improve that results. Im giving sellers freedom of choice of posts, because they know their audience.
    Till the next update, I will focus on Tumblr right now. In the meantime I might update other networks with same content:

    USING IFTTT:
    We can use a very nice method of connecting Tumblr RSS Feed to all networks. First you need to register to http://ifttt.com , create an account and start creating recipes. I might work a videotutorial as content for social networks for uploading to youtube. Wait for the next update.

    NEXT TUMBLR TASKS I WILL DO:
    - 5 more posts.
    - Buy another gig and document what happen.

    Im glad some people is following up with this thread.
    It is just that I put this project on standby because Im growing another community. It is in Spanish and the niche is Science, Technology and Education.
    Here are some screenshots from stats:

    Tumblr:
    [​IMG]
    It is growing about 500 followers per day.

    Instagram:
    [​IMG]
    It is growing about 1 - 1.5k per day

    Facebook:
    [​IMG]
    It is growing about 5-10k per day.
    [​IMG]


    Twitter:
    [​IMG]
    It is growing about 100 followers per day.
    I know I need to optimize it for making it more twitter friendly, using quotes and more valid text without links. Currently Im using IFTTT to make it work connecting the dots.

    Youtube is currently standby, right now I have 3,400 subscribers, but I dont have the time to create videos right now.

    And for the Oficial blog of this community here are the ANALYTICS:

    Im going to continue with the Marketing Mall community, when this is giving me a stable profit.

    What do you think guys?

    Im not using anything, plain social networks insights. In fact, I plan to use something like NextScripts to automatically post new blog posts to all this networks.
    StumbleUpon and Pinterest are also growing, every social network has its own science.


    Sure, I didnt know there were people interested on this, I will follow up with this social growth then.
