Good article on self promotion http://bit.ly/bdkfas -How to have good relationships as a self publisher. Networking gets us work! Work at it constantly.
So, after that quick brain dump, let me recap:
- Relationships are everything.
- We publish primarily in text without the nuance of critical non-verbal communication.
- Text has non-verbal elements like style and emoticons, but we can only control the latter.
- Context is also non-verbal communication. Context is karma: Character and professional reputation.
Written from a British perspective but with an American context in mind. Good advice for anyone who needs to network, and that’s everyone.
