I’ve talked about the ‘be everywhere’ strategy before and never is it more important than saying thanks.
I wrote a guest post for ManVsDebt that was picked up on another site doing a blog post round up. I got a notification through Talkwater1, clicked through and (naturally) enjoyed their praise, so I reached out and thanked them not only in a comment on the blog, but also with a Tweet. If they’d been on Google+ I’d have thanked them there, too.
It doesn’t take much to find the channels someone lives on in the digital space, but taking the time to say a proper thank you wherever you can helps build your network and relationships in a wonderfully authentic and effective way.
