The world is all about making connections. That is how we work as a society and in our personal relationships.
But what does that mean for your business and your online presence? If you are a writer or an online personality or entertainer, that means that people often want more of your than just regular information.
You have fans. If you have an online presence where you produce content, you probably have fans of followers who look forward to connecting with you on some level.
Your fans may want to know more about you. That doesn’t mean that you should share too much. And you should not share your personal information such as address or other personal details.
But sharing and connecting can build up your fan base which could lead to more revenue. That is really important.
How can you connect safely? One idea is to be responsive and reply when fans or followers comment or interact with you. This develops a meaningful relationship.
What else can you do? Be sincere in your responses and don’t do automatic replies that could be sent to anyone.
These are just a few ideas about how your fans and followers want to connect with you and not just follow. Always be safe and careful on the internet, of course, but also continue to work on your online business.
