Whether you're a blogger or have a start-up company, it's essential for you to have a good social proof.
And one significant metric is for you to have a good social media presence in the web. But what if you're struggling to gain fans and followers in the social networks. You have two basic online ways to choose.
First, you can use paid advertising like Google Adwords and Facebook Ads.
But if you're someone who don't want or have budget to support this type of campaign, you can choose to grow organic social following by consistently create compelling content in your site or blog.
The second option is what I'm doing in my blog. This option is worthwhile to do but honestly, it takes time to attract significant numbers of social following and you need to be strategic, as well.
Fortunately, there's another smart and effective way without spending any money on ads and lessen your time of waiting to gain fans and followers, which are perfectly fit for struggling bloggers and start-up companies.
Recently, I found Keeko, a social media exchange webtool that lets you grow your social following organically with real active users. You can get Facebook likes and Twitter followers on Keeko by liking, tweeting and following suggested entries once you sign-up in their website. Keeko works on point system. This means you need to earn your points first before you can get Facebook likes and earn Twitter followers.
Moreover, Keeko also supports Google plus exchange and LinkedIn connections.
Keeko is owned by Clicking Lab, a diverse team of creative web professionals, which is founded in Ottawa Canada and has expanded their operations to Cebu, Philippines last 2011. Recently, Keeko is featured in Yahoo! News.
