One way for you to get connections and support for what you are working on is to write to relevant interest groups or online communities. You will realise how exciting it is to write a message and have lots of people respond to you. However you must know how to write it well (I am not talking about grammar or language proficiency).
Here are the rules that would guarantee you better results.
- Write to give not to get. You get better results if you attract people to what you have, rather to push things to others and try to get what you want.
- Be open, honest and don’t give the impression that you have something to hide. So give your full name and any other details that would be relevant to the recipient.
- Write to others with a respect for their intelligence. Some of the message I came across is so blatantly sleazy and treat your readers as if they are not able to see through what you are trying to do. You might as well be honest and you will get more respect.
- Write to explain and to give people a bigger picture not just to “get down to the business” mentality.
I believe this will help some of you. What is your experience with this?
