    Thank you so much for this post. I had to really take my time and read through again and then decided to evaluate how well (if at all) I am doing each of the things listed. I think realizing that I could do some of these tasks better will be the start of a lot of great experiences and connections.

    EXCELLENT post, Jeff. Some very simple and other more complex words of advice we can all gain from. It is never, ever a bad thing to ‘learn from the greats’. Thank you.

    I read this part of your post because it was quoted on Twitter:

    “In fact some book publishers are now requiring their authors to have a minimum of 2,000 Twitter followers and 1,000 Facebook fans prior to publishing.”

    I find this extraordinary. I’ve never heard of any reputable publishers having such a requirement, and I’ve worked with a lot of them. Could you let me know which publishers ask writers for this? And provide your sources for this assertion?

    Thank you.

    Another great post Jeff. Not sure how you make the time to produce all this content. Following the right people and building strategic partnerships has been key to my early experiments to get the right followers on board.

    Thanks for this article. Really useful to someone like me; newly self employed in social media and needing all the tips they can get in how to be influential in a digital world ; ) Totally agree with tip 4, I’ve read and shared many of your posts over the past couple of months, the majority of which have been yours!

    Thanks for this. I’ve been doing quite a bit of work recently into looking at social influence in business – we’ll be posting next week about this – looking at things like Klout and Peer Index amongst other tools. I found this post stimulating food for thought and a really good organisation of the issues involved.
