I found this title in an article that inspired me. Giving first before asking for a favor or a job, is not only a nice way to create deeper relationships on the web but it is best networking practices. The idea to cross-post on friends’ blogs, websites or other social media is easy, cheap and can make a great difference.
Quote from the article: Effective networking is all about giving. And although the holiday giving season is far behind us, when it comes to your network, giving is a year-long activity. One of the best gifts you can give to members of your network is help in building their personal brands. When we make others look good, we look good – to them! So consider these free or very low-cost, Web 2.0-focused personal-branding presents. It’s time to demonstrate your personal-brand attribute of generosity and your knowledge of social media.”
