Abigale – you are absolutely dead on! In my new book draft, I talk about ‘Followers’ as a heard of cows going to slaughter. They mindlessly follow but have no idea where they are headed or to be ‘de-headed!’
I joined yesterday and have 14 new friends from request, however, I had to stop accepting every request. This afternoon, I first visited the profile and website or Facebook of the member and responded to them with comments to develop a friendship. In my seminars, I explain online success is ultimately a process that truly begins with a personal contact; Like me, Know me, Trust me, Pay me.
That’s how it works in old school; that’s how it works in new school.
