We continue today with more advice on building your influencer network.
4. Do not rush to start pushing your product immediately.
Be modest and don't dish out "I'm a misunderstood genius" messages.
Metatag Hag: Be deferential and respectful, and act as if your peer friend is already a celebrity. Well, compared to you, they are.
Peers can help you establish contacts in the respective industry, and maybe recommend you to the top influencer who helped them. Do not impose yourself, though; do not ask for favors. Treat people as people, not tools. Wait for an offer to introduce you to someone, but never beg for it. You will lose both the opportunity and the friendship.
Next time, we will talk about software tools to help you in your work, like Social Oomph or Traackr.
