Replacement Rapport OnlineIn today’s post, Alan is going away from the standard authority post.  Instead, he asks a lot of questions that are related to networking and interacting with other online entrepreneurs. 

I think this is an important read because you CAN’T run an Internet business without building relationships.  So read through Alan’s article and leave your thoughts in the comments section below…

If you’ll permit me I will not be writing a very ‘authoritative’ post here, rather I’d like to explore something with you – the idea of rapport.

Blog Networking - How to Be Social to Internet Business OwnersI’ll start this post by making a painful admission:

I SUCK at networking.

Seriously, this is my biggest failure as an Internet marketer.  Although I’ve earned a full-time online income since 2005, I haven’t taken the time to meet many of my fellow entrepreneurs.

It’s hard to admit this because I talk about “Internet success” principles on this blog.  But I’m a *failure* when it comes to one core skill.

Moving forward, I’d like to increase my networking skills.  Unfortunately, I don’t know how to get started.

Here’s where I need your expertise.  I know that a lot of my blog commentators are WAY better at networking than me.  So I’d like to pick your brain and get some help.

I’m asking for a quick favor.   In the comment section below, please list one action that’s helped you with networking.  It can be anything that’s helped you “get on the radar” of fellow Internet entrepreneurs.

I’m hoping to use crowdsourcing to learn more about this invaluable skill.  If we all add our thoughts, this can turn into a quality article about networking.  So please list one “must-do” idea…

It doesn’t matter if you have a cookie-cutter nine-to-five job in the corporate world or run your own business, and it doesn’t matter if you have four friends or forty. There really are advantages to networking.

It was once considered a method to increase your client base, but business networking is actually much more than that. It’s also a great way to gather information, meet new people, and develop your own skills—among other things!
