Top 10 Follow Friday Favorites and Top Influencers Week 41

Posted by in Twitter


Follow Friday Influential Favorites

Another week, another great list of 13 people I highly recommend for you to follow.

But, before I share them with you, let’s chat a little bit about “Influencers”.

Great word isn’t it? Makes you want to run out and connect with as many as you can, right?

As great as connecting with Influencers is, you don’t want to only focus on them.  follow friday

Most influencers are there for a reason, they are busy doing their thing, so to get their attention you will need to put in some work. Work that may or may not pay off for you in the long run.

The pay off may be, a tweet from them, a question answered by them, a interview for your blog, a guest post for theirs. Whatever you it is you want from that Influencer.

Now if all you do is focus heavily on Influencers and those Influencers are not repaying the love back what are you left with?

Not much right?

Here is a better plan.

Focus on everyone. The small guy, the middle guy and the Influencers.

Small guy will look up to you and share you

The middle guy will respect you and share you.

The Influencer will hopefully see you at some point and share you.

Like I mentioned in my Commun.it video review. The sharers, the small to middle guys are the ones that will help build your following, your blog and your business on a daily basis.

Focus on them as you work on connecting with the Influencers.

Oh and on a side note: to find “Influencers” you need to reply on tools that DON’T WORK.

So how do you know if that “Influencer” you are chasing is even worth your time?

haha shitty thought right?

Ok let’s end this with an example.

What drives and builds the American economy?

Small business or large corporations?

Ignore all the noise about, “you must find and chase and connect with Influencers to have success”… it’s just that NOISE!

Lucky for you I have a nice mix of all 3 below for you to get started with. :)
