I know I talk about Social Media often, but I have had so much fun getting to know people from all over the world because of the resources we have available to us. When I released Create Your Own Reality in June I placed a sentence at the top of my Profile page requesting help with the launch of my book. Within a month I had so many offers of help that I could hardly keep up with them.

Other than the 12 radio interviews from all over the world, Spain, England, Canada and all around the US. I have been interviewed on Teleseminars, too. I am also creating a couple of new Joint Ventures for speaking. One is in Australia! And one of the most lucrative resources in Joint Ventures will be how well you create your relationships with those who have large databases.

There are so many people who share your interests and will gladly promote your book, interview you and encourage their database to support you as well. It’s just one more way you can get a lot more traction without having to work so hard.

I was reminded by a Twitter expert that there is an unwritten rule of etiquette in social media, but especially on Twitter. It’s about building relationships, not selling your wares. In fact, you’ll get shunned if you try to start out by selling.

When I was asked to be getting on Twitter, of course my first reaction, was, not another social media distraction! In January I was following 22 people and had 5 followers. Then a friend of mine explained that Twitter is like have an automatic email system to let everyone you know and who is following you know what you’re up to.

Are you doing a teleseminar, radio interview or speaking engagement? Did your article just get placed on a new ezine? Twitter it! With one 140 character message, you can keep everyone informed.

You can follow the people you admire, you can suggest that others follow you. You can keep up with the latest greatest information. I have learned so much about Internet marketing Twitter add-ons and who I have a lot in common with.
