You have to get engaged with your audience
Be social on social media. You can start by responding to all your messages, comments, and mentions. Also you should look at Gary Vaynerchuk's $1.80 strategy for leaving your $0.02 cents on 90 posts a day for the best organic engagement and growth. Leaving insightful comments on other people's content not only builds that relationship, but can produce valuable discussion that will give you great insights and help you learn and improve.
How do you network with your connections and potential connections?
my Syrian co-worker brought sweets from her last travel. Sweets from Aleppo. very delicious. But I couldn't help but thinking about war and devastation while eating it in my save office. it felt like eating a bit of terror, like world news manifested itself on the table right in front of me, I had to think about laughing children running around in abandoned buildings, and how it would feel for them to eat these pistachio thingies, bitter sweet sweets.
