building you network

Last Update: February 09, 2021

Building your network is a way to help yourself by helping others. As the story goes, by helping other to achieve their goals, you can also improve your chances of achieving your goals.

This is a good rule that I have lived by all of my working life. I had mentors that would coach me and they guided me with that theory and it also stuck with me as I done business with people that always wound up being a good friend for life. I could not of accomplished what I did without the backing of all the good people that was working for the same goals of being successful in their journey through life.

The question is, are you just following and not communicating with whom you are following or do you introduce yourself and find out about them and their goals?

By doing that you can encourage them to keep pushing for success. In the process you will make a connection with a person that will be reading your post could be a friend for life.

If they are really working to build their network they will follow you back and that starts the conversation for life, that is the way to build your network one person at a time.

As we build our networks and the number of followers grow, that is the idea of the whole thing is getting people to follow you, then you become a leader and you put out good content to keep you readers informed, you are building traffic and this is what it is all about.

Now for the real problem that I am trying to understand .

When I go in to some peoples profile and I look at their profile, they my have numerous people following but a smaller number under followed by.

The answer is, you're following and adding to their network but they are not following you back to help you build your network. There are receiving but not giving back to the one that are helping them. Think about it.

Solution

go into your profile and view network, if you have some people following you and they have the tag "follow" below their name you need to follow the and add to their network .

I hope I have explained this right to get people to help people as we all work toward success together.

I have followed over 15 thousand and only about 1200 has followed me back, am I doing something wrong or is others are not following up on chances to build their network?

time will tell if they figure this out.

I realised that earlier on Leroy It depends on what members reason are for joining.
If it is primarily to host, then they are not interested in social interactions.
It has both reflection on you as a member
Continue to interact with members that continue to interact with you

Very true, I had zero interest in posting on here, not even questions. If I hadn't run an online forum before and already realized the benefits of talking, helping and interacting with people I would never have gotten involved on here. Glad I did, so many goodies that lay the groundwork/foundation towards that paper gold

people that just host is not good for the WA proccess. I am checking all that i follow and if they don't follow me back, i will unfollow them, i don't beleive that i should support someone that don't return the favor. thats my opinion.

Leroy, I understand but you can't look at things like that.
This is a business platform. Some times we do learn something from others, even if they haven't followed us back
I realised that some times when others who don't follow me back posted, and I replied, it is my response that make a difference and they started following me as well
This is not Facebook or Twitter, we need to look at what we can learn from others so that we have the best possible opportunities to succeed.
I hope this make sense

yes, i try to learn from every one, good commuication is very valuable. a one sided conversation is only good for one side. when both parties are talking then all is well. do you like a one sided conversation?

That is talking to myself which I quite like because I get the chance to brainstorm ideas that are great routes to success.
I do understand what you mean Leroy
You don't need to take this personally, sometimes members are just focusing on building their business and nothing else

I have experienced the same thing. That percentage is about the rate of return for mailings and other forms of mass communication. What’s important is how we use the names we have.

I know what you mean, Leroy! I have almost 14K followers, but have followed well over 100K (I am not the worst though--I know of many other members who have followed so many more--the ratio seems about the same)!

Definitely makes sense Leroy! When you interact and help others, you connect with folks and join in conversations that will help you become more comfortable with the concepts that we teach here at WA. As you learn and you see folks ask questions that you have the answers to, just drop them a note and help out - and others will do that for you as well. It's a pay-it-forward mentality that really helps to build that base of knowledge that will help you and your business!
