If you want to grow your business, blog readership, Twitter followers or Facebook likes, you do not have to blog a certain number of times a week, include secret SEO words in your tweets or make Facebook your full-time job. Instead …
If you are hiding secrets from your competition or withholding information from clients so they will buy more, you are losing opportunities to connect.
If you read a blog post or article that inspired you, thank the author on your blog or social media channel. Directing your readers towards helpful sources doesn’t mean you are directing them away from you.
Say thank you and let people know you appreciate that they work with you, share your work and do great work themselves.
Talk about your work and offerings but don’t let sales pages and your desire for financial success diminish your message or overshadow your ability to be helpful.
Answer questions, offer assistance and connect by helping someone.
Tweeting the same post over and over again can be annoying. Value people’s attentions and deliver information in an easy to consume way that is delivered by invitation instead of interruption.
