    As an entrepreneur, one of the main aspects of running your business is to market it. Part of marketing directly relates to your brand; which, in turn, determines your overall influence. Building an influence online is the easiest way to help improve your branding and networking amongst those within your market place.
    Unfortunately, entrepreneurs often approach building an influence online completely wrong. Hours upon hours are invested to network with others only for the contacts to fall through. Likewise, time spent on building influence often is quickly destroyed when the entrepreneur pushes too aggressively with their marketing message.
    1. Make sure your business Web page is the best it can be. Why spend time trying to get people to your website if it is not designed to be easy to use and doesn’t have the information people need? Be sure that your website navigation is working and easy to understand and that you have stellar content.
    2. Develop relationships. One of the best ways to increase your influence is to get to know people. Use Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and comment in forums and on blogs. Don’t just talk about your website or your products, actually take the time to get to know people and talk about what is important to them. As you develop relationships, your sphere of influence will increase because your contact base will expand and people will know that you are a person that can be trusted.
    Developing relationships with people in your market and beyond is easy with the social media websites that are available today. Be active on Facebook and Twitter. When you comment in forums or on blogs don’t just say “good post” or “nice article”, give an opinion – you don’t always have to agree with the person as long as you are respectful. This shows honesty and that you’re not just spamming them and using their blog or forum as a vehicle for your backlinks......read more http://news.bytrade.com/info/916-Entrepreneur-tipsHow-to-increase-your-influence-online.htm

    Yes, I quite agree with you. I am using facebook to market my web. I like to build relationship firstly with friends. I like to share them Chinese culture, chinese astrology signs or many pictures. When we are really friend, i like to let them view my web and give me comments. Now, many friends in facebook like me and never mind me an e-bussiness sales.

    It seems to me that its all about value. Marketers who make a lot of money know that unless they offer value, their proposition is dead in the water.
    So its really not all that difficult when you think about it.
    Make or find your market by delivering significant value and they will reward you in ways you would have never thought of.
    Marketing is the value for value game.
    :)
