One: I spent over 30 hours emailing 55 people
When I wrote “The Ultimate Networking Tips Guide: 87 Killer Resources” I spent days writing emails to the authors whose articles were featured.
Each email was personal and explained how the author has helped me achieve success.
Writing the emails took longer than finding all 87 links!
Results: Many authors who I idolize wrote back telling me they were honored to be featured.
Many of them shared the article with their networks, which was awesome.
Lesson: Thank people who have helped you no matter how big or famous they might be. You would think they get emails like this all the time, but they don’t.
They mostly get emails seeking help. Make their day!
