Today you have the opportunity to grow your social network through live events.  +Dustin W. Stout shows us the importance of attending this event and how it can build your following by finding people in your target market.  

Also, take a look at all of the +Weal Media photo's..they ALL have some hidden Weal logo's inside of them somewhere....can you find them?  This one's easy.
 
Grow Your Network Using LIVE Social Media Events
These are an opportunity to make meaningful connections

This is actually my first post on the +Weal Media blog-- it's about time! 

In this post I talk about the best way I've found to meet new people and discover valuable connections on social media: Live Social Media Events

This includes: 
- Twitter Chats
- Hangouts On Air
- YouTube Live Events
- Reddit AMAs

When it comes to Twitter Chats and Hangouts On Air in particular, the weekly reoccurring events can provide a huge amount of opportunity to develop relationships.

Some of my recommended events include: 
- #BufferChat  by +Buffer 
- #SBizHour  with +Brian Fanzo 
- #SEOchat  with +Bruce Clay, Inc. Internet Marketing 
- Social Theory with +Thomas E. Hanna | BlogPhoto.tv 
- The Mia Connect Power Chat with +Mia Voss 
- Good Day Google+ with +Chef Dennis Littley 
- Manly Pinterest Tips with +Jeff Sieh 

There are so many opportunities for brands and businesses to make valuable connections through these live social media events. With the right mind-set (which I talk about in the post) anybody can turn these live events into big ROI. 

Did I leave anything out that you think should be added? 

#socialmedia   #marketing  
Looking past the 24/7 nature of social media there there is actually a better, more focused way to grow your network of fans, followers, customers, and clients.

How To Build Relationships
Relationship marketing is a tried and true process for social media and we have to start realizing that this is an important part of your strategy. Building relationships can be the foundation on which your business thrives. It's not about you or your site, but about what you and your site (and content) can do to help those around you. Those people that are relevant to you.

How Is This Done?

Many people prefer to do this a couple of different ways, however the infographic below (that can also be found in a full article here: http://buff.ly/1D9IFoH) is some of the best ways that I have found that work quickly and efficiently for my business.

We've got to show people how relevant our brand is to their business, and even more importantly, how we can help them.

Take some time to rethink your relationship marketing strategy and what your business can do that is awesome for someone else!

Relationship Tips for Social
The other day I kinda let the cat out of the bag so I thought I would just let everyone know.  I'm in the process of writing The Relationship Manifesto that will cover everything you need to learn about building relationships on social media and establishing your brand.

For the time being, you can read a bit about that here:  http://bit.ly/1ADjkCD

Pin the image for later: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/191614159121833839/

It's been a long process as I have been exhausting every portal of information about relationship marketing for you to bring to your social strategy.  I hope you enjoy this post.  Let me know if there is any questions you have about relationship marketing and I'll try to add it in the book!

Resharing this for today's audience.  The last bit is what I would like to draw your attention to.
 
Emptiness
That's what it feels like when you have built everything around your online business except for relationships.  I cannot stress the importance of building a tried and trusted relationship with an individual here on social media.

It's a vetting process.  Since you can't read people's minds or know what they're going to do, you have to trust them.  You have to let down the wall and let them in.  On the other hand, they have to do the same for you as well.

The relationship building process is a graduation of different levels of trust and confidence that we place on one another.

One of the ways that you can graduate to the next level of trust with a follower or another person of interest is to create opportunities that will allow you to help them achieve something with their business.

If you can define the problem better than your target customer, they will automatically assume you have the solution. - Jay Abraham

That is so true.  

When you can completely relate to your audience through different forms of emotions and empathy, then you are on the right path to creating a powerful Dunbar number.

Where In The World Is Wade-O?

Right now I'm living in hotels in Oklahoma doing different speaking engagements, slowly headed towards California!  I am very excited to announce that I will be opening up a strenuous person to person mentoring program next month. 

I will take 3 people, and only 3, to show them how they can further benefit from the relationship marketing strategies that have helped my business succeed and grow here on social media.  You will learn how to insert your brand into the lives of people that are beneficial to your business and create a trusting relationship with them.

I will show you how to create allies in the business with some of the most powerful people in the industry and what you need to be doing to take a step forward in the right direction.  This will be a 4 week class, pricing will be moderate, but the reward will be great.

If you would like to be considered to be one of the three that I interview to take the class, please let me know in the comments below.

Introduction
Hey my name is Wade and I'm a full time social media marketing blogger!  I have a Psychology degree and I use it to help people create action from their updates on social media.  I love helping at my website. You can find me at WadeHarman.com.  I will share more of the relationship marketing and Google Plus side of things.

I'm all about building relationships online.  People these days have a twisted sense of how marketing is done and I'm here to set them straight!  Become a Hero to one individual at a time and stop marketing to the masses!  One on one, investment in time and personalize everything you do, and that is going to help you!  I can show you more Relationship Marketing tips through my coaching too. 

My social media marketing blogs are dedicated to helping people succeed with social media through techniques such as creating a social presence, building relationships, and driving traffic!  

I use Psychology to prompt action from the reader and I can help you to do the same.  You see emotion plays a big part in what we see on social media.  Learning how to pull an emotion that creates action out of the reader can be a pretty powerful thing to do! Most of my posts relate to the tips on how to build interaction with your updates on social media and the power of relationships and what you can do to build them on Google Plus.  I also have a weekly Hangout on Air called Relationship Marketing where I have different guests appear each week to show you how to build your marketing from this aspect. Let me show you how this is done to create profits, build readership, and a bigger following online!  I have a coaching program below dedicated around the people following you because people make up your business either online or offline and they are a very important part of your success.

Tips on Relationship Marketing:
Communities I Recommend:
When you join a community it's important not to go in thinking that you're going to spread your site links everywhere.  Google Plus is starting to be a place where people do not tolerate spam.  Go in with the mindset of building relationships and making friends and see where you can help people always.

HOA's I'm Running:

Tips For Google Plus:
You can definitely find some great help for posting to G+ from some of the above members and also in my blog posts, however, just be yourself.  This is not your every day social network, again, don't come in with the idea that you're going to drop your link and leave.  Make friends, be helpful, and remember your manners!

    Underground coal mining work. I operated a scoop that had no brakes, no lights, and the hydraulics never worked on the boom half the time. I worked in a 40" space for 10 hours a day doing my part to mine coal. This is probably the worst coal mines that someone can go into. Very dangerous. They never heeded to the mining inspectors, naked wires lying around, didn't rock dust half the time, all they wanted us to do was work hard and get the coal out! I was in charge of air stream underground, maintenance of underground vehicles, and maintenance of miner, stopping builder, and just about everything else you can think of.
