3. Engage in conversation

  • Choose 1 to 5 communities that your audience enjoys and refers to for advice and/or inspiration.

You can also look for podcasts, newsletters, blogs or forums. It can basically be every place where people engage in social exchange.

  • Listen carefully and learn.

Contribute by answering questions and help people out with advice. Do not spam and be respective to others.

  • Pay close attention to these people’s feelings and needs.

Talk less about yourself and more about them.

  • Repeat this on a regular basis to become a known member of the community.

It will come naturally that other community members will start recognizing you and pay close attention to your ideas and thoughts.
