What does it take to become a top 1% influencer on any social network? Consistency? Credibility? Messaging?
I’m not sure how I did this, if I could repeat it or even show others how to do it. I can, however, share my networking and social networking habits. From time to time, I’ll blog about that here.
Knowing your rolodex is a critical tool in networking. My wife’s family often jokes that I can’t go anywhere in the world without knowing someone. That’s not exactly true, but it’s close. I do know a lot of folks. I connect with a lot of folks and I follow up after every meeting.
By doing so, I become a trusted resource for friends, family and acquaintances. I’m also positioned for the next big opportunity that crosses my desk.
Networking and connecting are absolutely core strengths (for me). My best practices have afforded me countless opportunities in a very short period of time.
