The Most Lethal Tool in Your Online Entrepreneur Arsenal

Isocial networking online 450x298 300x198 The Most Lethal Tool in Your Online Entrepreneur Arsenal graciously accepted
Lynn’s offer to write a guest post, and whipped 1 up quickly.


Why?

I identified the most lethal tool in my – and your – online entrepreneurial arsenal a while back.


Your Network.

People buy your stuff, right? People join my team. People buy my inspirational ebooks. People buy the personal development program which I back. So meeting increasing numbers of people interested in joining my team, buying my ebooks and the PD program makes sense, right? Which means growing a massive network of like-minded folks is the most critical weapon in your arsenal.

As your connections grow, people share your stuff to their networks, and so on.  So your presence expands like an online wild fire.

Because you made meeting new people and building connections with these folks Job A1.

Ignore networking at your own risk. I had over 200 posts on my blog before really networking, so 200 posts were published to a crowd of pretty much crickets. Fast forward a few years and I am travelling the world while working my gigs. Because I met a heckuva lot more people interested in my offerings. I formed strong bonds with leaders, which pushed my trust factor higher (word of mouth advertising, especially from leaders, is strongest), and I prospered.

How to network? Share. Retweet. Facebook Share. Stumble other’s stuff. Send private, personalized messages to folks. You grow your network in proportion to how much you help others grow theirs.

Your Turn

Are you a strong networker? Do you need to bump up your networking game a bit?

  1. Greate post. Keep writing such kind of info on your page. Im really
    impressed by your blog.
    Hey there, You’ve done an incredible job. I’ll certainly digg it and in my view suggest to
    my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this website.

  2. Nellie Kanae says:

    You are so interesting! I do not believe I’ve truly read through anything like this before.

    So wonderful to find someone with some unique thoughts on this subject.
    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This website
    is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with some originality!

  3. Erna Enslen says:

    Currently it seems like Drupal is the top blogging platform out there right
    now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on
    your blog?

  4. Dalia Albert says:

    I’ve read this publish and if I may I desire to recommend
    you some attention-grabbing things or advice. Perhaps you
    can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I want to learn more things about it!

  5. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your kind words Samantha!  RB

  6. Wow! What an amazing success story, Ryan! You are truly a star networker in my books and I especially love how you mention that you can travel the world. =) That’s my dream!

    I definitely need to “bump up my networking game.” =P

  7. Lynn Brown says:

    Well said Tambre. Who you connect with and not the numbers is more important. I’m glad you mentioned ‘time in building connections…’ because it does take time, your network doesn’t happen overnight. Thank you Tambre for stopping in and sharing your awesome tips and advice!

  8. Lynn Brown says:

    Very happy to hear how you found me and even happier that you are visiting again today! Thank you Radu and am glad that you enjoyed Ryan’s insights. I appreciate you sharing your inspiring thoughts. Looking forward to a continued connection, have a an awesome day!

  9. Lynn Brown says:

    So glad you stopped by today Karen. I do enjoy sharing Ryan’s wonderful, inspiring advice.
    I like your how you put it Karen …. ‘an important habit to build’… and it is something we can turn into a habit!

  10. I appreciate that Karen ;) Thanks for stopping by and sharing!  RB

  11. Being patient and dedicated is a key Radu. Be persistent, and the numbers of strong alliances grow. Thanks for sharing…and I’m glad the Universe brought you and Lynn together ;)  RB

  12. Reaching out and connecting is key Tambre, thanks for sharing! RB

  13. Tambre says:

    Maybe it is obvious, but it wasn’t to me when I first began.  It’s not just building a network of strategic alliances but also consciously finding ways to reach out to your target audience.  The first 200 friends I had on FB were coaches and it was great to have their support and to share for each other, but I needed to invest time in building connections to my niche as well. Yes, yes to networking and for those just beginning being aware that it isn’t just the numbers but also the who you are networking with that counts.

  14. Hey Lynn,
    Coincidence or not..I “accidentaly” found your blog two days ago and read a previous post.
    Now the universe brought me again here :)
    It’s great to meet you and also glad to find someone passionate about blogging and social media. Thanks for bringing here a marketing champion :)

    Ryan,
    The process of building is simple in essence but only our dedication and patience will determine if it’s successful one or not. I strongly believe that we can build powerful networks online and have a lot of fun too.
    Thanks for sharing your insights.

    Wish you both a sensational day,
    Radu

  15. Hey Ryan…
    Great tip you give here!
    Learning how to step out of one’s comfort zone and interact with people is an important habit to build.
    I see you almost everywhere I go…so I appreciate your tutorial and example that you set!

    Thanks Lynn for bringing Ryan’s expertise here.
    Karen

  16. Thanks Bonnie and yep, Lynn Rocks! I appreciate your comment and all the wisdom Lynn shares with us.  RB

  17. Power points here Cindy, thanks for sharing AND stopping by my blog!  RB

  18. Thanks Roberta!  RB

  19. Lol Roy, and so true. The concept is timeless and simple. Meet people with similar interests, share, prosper. Thanks for sharing!  RB

  20. Word of mouth advertising is infinitely powerful Janette. Powerful trust builder! Thanks for sharing :)  RB

  21. Lynn Brown says:

    It is very true Cindy.  Networking has proven to be an important factor with our online business.  Glad to hear you are doing well and growing your business.  I’m glad you enjoyed the post that Ryan shared today and glad you stopped by.

  22. Lynn Brown says:

    First of all Bonnie, thank you so  much for your kind comment … and second, I so much agree with you.  “Your network grows when you help others”… if every business owner got that, think of how successful we all would be!  So thank you for sharing that and I am a huge Ryan follower too!

  23. Lynn Brown says:

    Well it is an intense word, I agree with that Roberta. I think the verbiage stresses the importance and as you say, useful and powerful.  :)

  24. Lynn Brown says:

    Just wanted to acknowledge Janette that I agree, word of mouth advertising is still very valuable to business even today.  Thank you for stopping in and offering your insight.

  25. Lynn Brown says:

    I agree Roy, the concepts are still the same.  Point well made!  Thanks for sharing your comments on this topic.  Oh… and glad we don’t have those hand-cranked phones anymore, lol!

  26. Word of mouth advertising is very powerful. It takes time to build a network of leaders in your field. You have to “put yourself out there” and take risks. You have to earn their trust.
    I like your success story ~ from blogging to crickets to traveling the world!
    Thank you for a great article, Ryan!

  27. This is age-old advice.  And, still relevant.
    Back when I started (you know, when the Industrial Revolution was reaching the US shores), our professors reminded every one of us to attend as many professional meetings as possible.  Accept EVERY speaking gig (they were called opportunities back then), write other authors of technical articles, share yours with others, and you will succeed in this profession.
    So, now we don’t rely on snail mail or hand-cranked telephones, but the concepts are identical.  
    And, so shall they be when beam me up Scotty is more than a throwaway line on a tv show…

  28. Not sure that the tool is lethal but it is definitely useful and powerful

  29. Cindy Murphy says:

    Thanks for sharing this post Ryan and Lynn.  It is a great reminder of what social media and networking all all about.  In the short time that I have been online, I have made more friends than I have made from local networking.  When you put them all together, you can’t help but grow your biz, your network, your audience and your bottom line.  

    Have a great weekend, 

    Cindy

  30. Very good advice Ryan. I’ve been following you posts on twitter for a while already.  Thanks for sharing a little more here on Lynn’s blog (she rocks SO much doesn’t she?) .  I think that your point that your network grows when you help others grow there is key and often lost on so many people. 

  31. Lynn Brown says:

    Always a pleasure Ryan to have you share your wonderful insight, advice and strategies.  Please know you have an open invitation to guest author anytime!

  32. Thanks so much Lynn! I appreciate you sharing the opportunity with me :)
