When most people think about the difference between 90,000 and 100,000, they think of 10,000. When it comes to business, blogging, and social networks, the difference between 90,000 and 100,000 is an entire digit, and that difference means a lot. The moment I reached a combined total of 90,000 followers on all of my social networks combined, I included a widget with all of my social media icons that said, “Follow Marc and Join 90,000 Other Readers.” A few weeks later, I had a combined total of 100,000 followers on all of my social networks. That’s when I changed the widget from “Follow Marc and Join 90,000 Other Readers” to “Follow Marc and Join 100,000 Other Readers.”
The results were huge, but in a way that I did not expect. Originally, I only saw this as a way to boost my credibility, but something else happened as well. I got more blog subscribers. On the day I made the change, I got four times as many subscribers as I get on an average day. The 100,000 boosted my credibility and resulted in more people wanting to subscribe for updates.
The main reason that 100,000 is different from 90,000 is because few people make the six figure club. Everyone who is not in the six figure club wants to be in the six figure club. 90,000 may be close to the six figure club, but in the end, it only has five figures. Real numbers are becoming more important than ever because they highlight potential, and if you have the big numbers, people will follow you so they can learn how to get those big numbers as well.
