No matter what industry you’re in, build relationships.
I’m referring to real, honest, long standing relationships built on a foundation of trust. Surround yourself with the very best in your industry.
No one can be the “best” at everything. No one can know everything. But with these relationships, you can pool your resources and keep yourself informed. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses. By combining your strengths with others, you can help to offset your weaknesses.
But, be sure to build these relationships honestly and make absolutely sure that they’re real. Otherwise, there will be no foundation at all if they aren’t.
Once you’ve established an account search for groups and people related to your industry and request to be their friend. Then make contact. Introduce yourself, and be active in the community you are a part of.
Social media sites like these may not pass to much in the way of page rank or link juice to your site but rather brand you and your business.
If done correctly you should see an increase in traffic to your site. You can see this through your analytics.
