Here is the secret: There is no secret.
But there are some important things to remember:
1. It takes time.
There are no shortcuts and you can’t buy your way to success. Focus on one relationship at a times and then focus on the quality of your content and the quality of yourself.
2. You reap what you sow.
It really comes down to hard work. The energy you put in to make new connections will pay off. It is a long-term strategy and it takes a serious commitment. The benefits of all that hard work, though, increase more and more over time.
