60 Ways To Increase Your Influence Online

by Mavis Nong on October 18, 2010

I came across an amazing list of 60 tweets about how to increase your influence online by Sam Rosen. I thought you’ll find this information inspirational.

Here we go:

#1. David Meerman Scott. “Stop talking about your products and services. People don’t care about products and services; they care about themselves.” -@dmscott

#2. Anne Holland. “Improve the buttons on your landing page. Can you make your button bigger?” -@anneholland55

#3. Mike Volpe. “We share lots of things that most companies would keep internal. By sharing both the good and the bad, you build digital influence.” -@mvolpe

#4. Michael Port. Consistency. Consistency demonstrates commitment. You’re going to earn trust because you’re consistent.” -@michaelport

#5. Liz Strauss. “Know where you’re going — because who would want to follow you if you don’t know where you’re going?” -@lizstrauss

#12. Chris Guillebeau. “Avoid incestuous blogging. Instead of sticking to one niche, think bigger: what social circles are related to yours?” -@chrisguillebeau

#13. Laura Roeder. “Just start talking to people! Don’t worry about what to tweet, just start responding.” -@lkr

Great research you’ve done here Mavis, really interesting.

Personally, No 5 – “Know where you’re going — because who would want to follow you if you don’t know where you’re going?” does it for me!

Stay inspired!

hey Mavis there’s some real gems in there -seems almost a shame to reveal them all in one post!

There’s a real tangible benefit to edifying others -retweeting and acknowledgment with no ulterior motive is so powerful…and you’ve just edified 60!!!

Hi Mavis,

This is the one I found most interesting but so honest in our industry that many fail to acknowledge

“#53. Muhammad Saleem. “Give as much as you can give. Too often we’re too focused on what we want to accomplish.” -@msaleem”

I do not have all the knowledge in the world and am always looking for more knowledge, and when I find it I am very grateful especially if it is a video. I have started making more how to videos that allow people to see how I do things and what type of results I get and what they could get.

Thank you for sharing these great tips !

Mavis Nong October 22, 2010 at 8:55 PM

Absolutely, Robert! We learn new things every day, don’t we? Now, we need to share with others freely.

You’re doing a great job, Robert. Your videos are superb. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for stopping by and for sharing your experience.

All the best,

That is my personal favorite. You cannot lead or produce results, especially in the world of social media, without a motto like this.

Hello Mavis,

Wonderful List you have here. Personally, I love #5 by Liz Strauss. “Know where you’re going — because who would want to follow you if you don’t know where you’re going?. I believe that in any type of venture or business, you must determine first your goal and the direction that you wanted to take so that you can focus on that and base your decisions and plans to achieving that goal. This is very important to stay focus.

Keep it up,

Ana
