Follow me on Twitter and get a prize!
Now that I got your attention. The prize will be an ally in the future! Yes, you now will have a person to bounce ideas off of. I am pretty knowledgeable about a lot of things. A few people told me, “You are my phone a friend!” Everyone needs a phone a friend. Period.
Where did this idea come from? I had a very good conversation with Mark Ruiz about this. Mark has over 26,000 followers and I asked him how did he get so many followers. I am paraphrasing here, but Mark stated he follows people that tweet phases about what he tweets about. When they follow him back, he send them an introductory email. Hmm… that makes a lot of sense. Twitter to him is about finding like minded individuals and making a connection. It appears he built his following shaped by his own interest. This may have seemed very simple to and a no brainer to Mark, but this was a moment of Zen for me.
I would have never looked at Twitter that way. Up until now I followed my friends and people that followed me. Now I will take it to the next level to form connections. Thanks Mark, you cleared this whole Twitter thing up for me.
