Dot Com Lunch – The Importance of Networking & Mentorship

On this episode of the Dot Com Lunch, I take a trip to the residence of the head of Sally’s new school for a meet the parents reception. The reception really illustrates the power of networking. While I talk about networking, Bobby talks about the importance of mentorship and how it impacted his life.

  1. Networking makes blogging easier. Networking makes everything easier.

    I see how you and other top bloggers online make friends with other big dawg bloggers. The partnerships follow – product releases, free webinars, guest posts, etc – and then everything gets easier and easier because what was once 1 audience, becomes 10, or 20 or 50 audiences with other top blogger’s followings becoming aware of you and your products and services.

    I see networking as a simple, direct, easy way to make friends and to expand each other’s presence. A rising tide lifts all ships. If you make friends, help people out and take a genuine interest in successful folks from your niche all types of prospering partnerships evolve.

    I receive emails from struggling bloggers who ask me to connect them with top bloggers I know. I respond: help them. Often, the advice falls on deaf ears because if you are thinking and feeling like a failure you won’t do as successful bloggers do. But if you open up and help folks who’ve seen success – comment on their blog, tweet their posts, buy their course, hire them – those little gestures can grow into something so big you will be stunned.

    I’ve landed 2 recurring guest posting gigs on top blogging tips themed blogs through the power of making friends, or through the power of networking. A comment here, a share there, and of course, I wrote 1000 words daily to get clearer and more confident with my writing, but these opportunities opened up for me because I helped folks and made friends with successes on a daily basis.

    When you befriend the big dawgs, worlds of opportunity open up for you. Almost like you were on your tippy toes trying to look out your basement window when trying to do everything on your own, and when you befriended top bloggers by helping them, they bring you up to the roof so you can get an unobstructed, 360 degree view of what is out there.

    Brilliant how well this strategy works when you make friends and network from a heart-centered space, intending to help you new friends and all the folks that you will meet as a product of your friendship.

    I’d also add that networking seems scary at first. Especially if you’re a struggling blogger. But in time, if you are willing to befriend those first few established bloggers, you realize it’s easy to approach and connect with anybody in the online and offline world. We all put on our pants one leg at a time and most top bloggers are kind, generous, helpful and down to earth folks. Which is the exact reason they are successful 😉
