E.g. I have 300+ Facebook friends and 150+ LinkedIn connections. I assume I have close (enough) relations with around 100 to use them in spreading my message and get them to sign up on my site. But how do you - generally speaking - break through to their network. What incentives do people need to send a message to their 10+ closest friends, who again send it to their 10+ closest friends etc?

Is begging enough?

Hi Henrik,

Thanks for asking about facebook friends and great begging

You can "Bribe" your friends on Facebook and Linkedin by offering a contest for them sending your message to their closest friends. It does not have to be an expensive prize, maybe $20-$25. For 1,000 mentions that is not a bad deal.

You can go even cheaper by using www.fiverr.com

You can get almost anything you want done on this site for $5. Just be careful because some are great and others give very poor service.

Check any feedback they have before you decide which one to use.

Best of success,

Skip Rosell
