How to become a Connected Internet Marketer

Have you wondered what it takes to get connected as internet marketer?

I recall seeing partnerships 10 years ago when a newbie blogger.

How did these internet marketers bond to release products, services and seminars?

Over the years I uncovered a few strategies from top connected marketers with large, loyal friend networks of influential internet marketers.

Following these strategies helps you:

  • Build a thriving online business
  • Earn Passive Income
  • Reach a large, targeted audience through the principle of leveraging
  • Enjoy the ride since you won’t feel the stress of trying to succeed through your own steam

The lone wolf dies during the winter. But the wolf pack survives and thrives.

Nature fans – and Game of Thrones fans – know this.

2 beats 1. Imagine you trying to reach a big audience and promote your opportunity solo. Not a good look. But imagine you and a dear friend co-promoting each other to your respective tribes. This is the smart, prospering approach.

Peep these tips to become a connected internet marketer.

1: Help Without Asking

Being generous is the easiest way to become a connected marketer because top marketers did the same generous giving to become connected.

I receive emails daily from bloggers asking for help in terms of guest post opportunities and features but show zero interest in me. None of these folks express an authentic interest in me as a human being. All want to use my platform for their benefit. I junk such emails if I feel annoyed or respond with a link explaining how building a friendship with me is the only way to appear on my blog.

Do you want to become connect? Help me by:

  • Publishing a genuine comment on my blog
  • Retweeting my latest post
  • Sharing my latest post on Facebook

Email me explaining how you helped me. I love these emails. Said emails impress me. Said emails prove you want to befriend me, not use me.

This is how to lay the foundation for being a connected internet marketer; pay your dues, plant friendship seeds and help without asking for anything, cyber wining and dining established pro marketers.

The more interested you become in top pros, the more interested top pros become in you, your blog and your online business.

Connected internet marketers are generous internet marketers.

2: Study the Hero’s (and Lose the Zero’s)

How do the most connected internet marketers behave?

Study these pros. Emulate these dynamos. Successful, connected marketers help you become connected through osmosis.

I emailed my friend and highly connected internet marketer Zac Johnson a few hours ago, sharing how I’d mentioned him on Blogging From Paradise, and noting how I hoped our native New Jersey would miss an upcoming potential Nor’easter (I am in Thailand now). Zac responded a few minutes ago, gratefully thanking me and noting to keep in touch.

See how I helped him without asking for anything and kept things light and personal, noting the storm? This is how two friends chat. Zac is an iconic marketer who inspired me to keep things light, via his shining example. I learned from Zac by observing Zac.

On the flip side of things, ignore and release any marketers focused on:

  • Talking business all day long online
  • Trying to squeeze money out of folks through fear based tactics
  • Dehumanizing their audience (everything is “prospect” or “lead” versus “human being”)

Let go the fear-based marketers. They don’t care to connect with you anyway; they just want to use you for your gain.

Hang with and observe the genuine pros who market from a heart-centered space.

3: Invest in Resources

I share tips to help you become super connected through thick, thin and all in between during your online career.

Almost all internet marketers panic at some point during their careers. They start out with a smart approach – create value and befriend top pros by being generous – but fear sets in when after 3-6 months of doing the right things, no tangible results appear.

Most marketers panic, ditch the smart strategy and fail horribly, going through a miserable, self-centered, lone wolf strategy.

Wise marketers buy resources to refer to when panic begins creeping into their minds, remaining centered, poised, balanced and on purpose, with an eBook or course to turn to for regular reading and study.

Buying resources from pro marketers also makes you memorable in their minds. If you buy my eBook and email me with a glowing review I instantly love you and remember you. This is such a quick and easy way to plant the seeds for building a genuine friendship with me. I take care of my good blogging buddies who patiently allow our bond to mature; just ask anybody I promote to my 60,000 member, loyal tribe.
