Meaningful Connections

Should you be concentrating directly on numbers when it comes to your connections on your social networks?  Are you constantly checking your follower counts and making every effort possible to grow these numbers?

That's not a bad thing.

I bet you thought I was going to say it was wrong, that you should be concentrating on deep, quality, meaningful and relevant connections to your industry.

Well I am... you knew the answer all along but it's hard to put it all together sometimes.  That next follower you engage could become the next connection that brings you a wealth of knowledge, experience, and perhaps even a little money.. (yes lots of money we hope).

But certainly keep concentrating on growing your connections on your networks, just perhaps take the time out to make some really meaningful response to some of your networks posts.  Private message someone your thoughts on an issue.  Make a relevant post and link to a person you believe could use the exposure.

All these little things can add up to one big experience.

Continue to grow and evolve with the emerging tech that your networks are bringing out.  Be proactive in the way you enter your day.  Post often and post relevant.  Link up your networks and posts so your connections have the ability to actually find what you're talking about.
