Networking is of the utmost importance in internet (or any) business. It is often said that “it is who you know, not what you know.” But in an overcrowded internet arena it can be a daunting task get noticed by others.
Well these 5 individuals have taken networking to new highs, each in their own way…
Martin Junior has taken social networking to the extreme. Martin set out to fulfill a game plan of social sharing to a degree exceeding anything that has been done before (check it out here). And I’d say it is working. After only a couple of weeks with his blog Martin is receiving double-digit comments. And although comments are not the be all end all of blogging success, it shows that people are taking notice of his efforts and massive undertaking. Oh…did I mention he runs his blog completely from his mobile phone? Pretty sweet, right?
Just the other day I received a very encouraging “Thank You” e-mail from Christian. This is the kind of personal networking that is rarely seen. A personal touch that goes a long way. It was not a comment on a blog or a guest post. It wasn’t for the sake of gaining backlinks. It was for the sake of making a personal connection.
Sure everyone knows that guest posts are a great way to extend your reach. But Danny Iny is going at it hard. Over the last couple of months he has been featured on Danny Brown’s blog, Steve Scott’s Site, Think Traffic, Pro Blogger, Big Girl Branding and The Sales Lion. And I’m sure there are countless others I am not including. Danny writes great content in combination with an awesome story-telling, attention grabbing style. And on top of that, he links to OTHER bloggers in his guest posts in a true feat of pure genius networking.
I actually don’t have much here. I just really wanted to use this picture you see to the left. And I think that’s worthy enough of adding Dino to the list.
But Dino Dogan also partnered with Dan Cristo to bring us Triberr. Sure you see his face all over the blogosphere commenting on blogs left and right. But these two fine gentlemen took networking to a new level…by creating a whole new networking platform.
If you aren’t already on Triberr you should definitely look into it. It is an awesome, awesome, and did I mention AWESOME platform. If you would like an invite let me know and we might be able to work something out .

What can you learn from these individuals? What other examples of great, personal, or unique networking have you seen?
