Content is your "principal". Web traffic is "interest". Social networks allow you to "earn" value. "Diversify" your traffic sources. All part of the influence economy.

"Think of knowledge networking in terms of physical fitness, and in terms of a marathon, not a sprint. Spend at least one fifth of your working time - at least 8-10 hours - a week on a combination of face-to-face connection, organising your networks, and creating your 'knowledge dashboard' of issues and ideas to be across."
This is the age of collaboration and reciprocity. Share what you know with others: senda link to an article you have read, order a book and put it in the mail, help someone who looks like they are having an attack of shyness across the corner of a cocktail party room. Above all, be interested in ideas and others, not just yourself.

1. Attract attention of more business prospects and leads;
2. Create social proof; and
3. Learn from your peers.
