 26th September 2013 by gihan

Build Your Online Influence

I was recently interviewed by Geoff McDonald about how to build your online influence – among other things.

Geoff and I have known each other for a long time. So we talked about a number of things during this interview, including:

  • The day I visited every website in the world
  • Why I prefer the quality of connection and influence over quantity – and what this means for your social media strategy
  • Why webinars are the ‘perfect storm’
  • The various reasons for, and different ways to, write books
  • How I was featured in Garr Reynolds’ best selling book Presentation Zen – along with Seth Godin and Nancy Duarte
  • Steve Martin’s secret for success
  • The Three Rs of social media influence
  • Why you can be more influential working in a niche
  • Why referring people to experts other than yourself is good for you
  • The power of paying to learn from other experts
  • How to earn the right to be the authority in your field
