In Social Media, You Cannot have Success without a Team

If you can get your blog on one of these front pages, you dramatically increase your chances for growing your community and building a follower base. (Especially if you do this for a long period of time, allowing your material to saturate the online space)

You aren’t going to be able to win at this unless you have a strong team. What does a team do? People on it back you. They upvote your stuff — usually because they like what you try to share. It’s also a simple fact of life that people stick with people who they like. It’s called friendship. (It’s also common for people of similar political, religious or other viewpoints to hover around each other online.) When you and a group of people cluster around specific content, it increases the chance the content will be noticed by people outside your group. That’s just a fact of life in social media.


In the fast-paced, ever-evolving world of the social web, it’s often hard just to figure out how to use some of the more popular sites that let you share your favorite articles and videos, much less bring traffic and followers to your site from them. With so much to think about and do on these sites, you are only going to get by with a little help from your friends. I’m not just saying that because I’m a Beatles fan. It’s really the only way you can have any success, and transfer some of that success to your own blog.
