Using Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest to feed any of the above is simply just good marketing...especially when the forum or blog is a display case for your products, or when trying to establish oneself as an authoritative figure.

Want to become the go to guy...join a group that interests you and get active for a few months answering questions...if you don't have an answer google it and then answer...usually the people asking are too lazy to do their own research. Two benefits to this....you will get to be the go to guy and as a bonus having done this you will most likely have sufficient info and knowledge to create your own product...or...for hotsheets the 30 answers critical to XXXX, or the 20 secrets to XXXX....you will know exactly what people are looking for and want.

Cornell,

You have just exposed the secret to success. Damn, now everybody knows.

I couldn't agree with you more about people being too lazy to do their own research. What grabs me by the short hairs is how prevalent this is among our so called college students. (I live in a college town and interact w/these wanna be future leaders.)

I guess that's why the 80/20 rule will never disappear. And that's no matter the type of guvmint structure we have. Anyway, just my thoughts...
