  1. If you want to achieve any level of success both online and offline, building relationships is one of the most important factors.

    I agree that social networking is a great way to build your relationships but more importantly is delivering and even over-delivering the content that your visitors, readers and subscribers are looking for.

    Another one of your thought provoking posts Gary. 🙂

    1. That is a great point Robert delivering great content is important and i believe this is an area i look at closely as we already know quality out lives quantity.

  2. I worry a bit about the effect of social sites simply because they seem to have taken over so many people’s social interaction with one another. I find that so many young and not so young people seem to have great difficulty ‘reading’ other people’s body language.

    Any people lover will attest to the fact that so much of our communication happens through our faces and our body posture, that many of these skills aren’t being learnt through online social media sites.

    The question to me is, what will be the eventual outcome?

    1. Nothing is wrong with building relationship online as long as you keep it at a managable level online relationship is very popular amongst bloggers today and this is what helps to drive our community.

  3. Nice post bro. I think yes, relationships do matter and blogging is not an exception. Infact success in blogging very much depends upon the way you maintain relationship with your fellow bloggers. Those who fail here, they fail forever. Maintaining a good relationship is absolutely necessary. To put it in other words, relationship is all about networking. Better networking leads to better results. And this could be anything say…comments, traffics, clicks, etc… and I guess we all desire for the same. To build a good relationship, one has to learn the art of networking. You need to be more social, need to be more understanding, need to be more broadminded. Blog commenting on a regular basis, social networking, live chatting, etc….are many ways to go ahead with your relationship building. It looks tough but it isn’t. I have tried same and it has helped me a lot.

  5. I also agree and I think, relationships do matter and blogging is not an exception.

Maintaining a very good romantic relationship is completely essential. To put it in other words, romantic relationship is all about networking. Far better networking leads to better results.

    1. Thanks for your thouhtful comment this is what the post waas all about that we should help each other united we stand divided we fall.

  10. I’ve also read that post man, I even commented on that one before 🙂 And as for what I can remember with what I’ve said there, that not content and not relationship is king, it’s quality. Because with out having a quality content, you can never get the attention of other bloggers, and if you don’t have quality relationships with your community, your contents will have a lesser value as well, seeing as your community is the key in having your contents spread out and to be noticed by other people within your “friends'” networks 🙂


    1. Jason you give a detailed response here with which i can not disagree with you struck a cord with the word quality and i must say that forged both the content and the relationship perfectly.

  11. Short term I totally agree. Social networking, as well as good SEO practices can drive a lot of people to your doorstep. You can even do fairly well if that is all you have. You may find a lot of people that are loyal because they like YOU! But in the long run I still would argue that content IS still king.

    Social Networking is the Prince and SEO a very powerful Duke though. If neither the prince nor the duke help, you will never SEE the king! SO for early stages of your blogging career I would see where Social networking CAN be more important, but for long term success you need that content IMO.

    1. Very well said Steve i really admire the way you put the twist with your explanation this is the trade mark of a good writer

  12. Nice posting mate! Thanks for sharing it.
    Social Media have become the important factor for building relationships which helps to increase sales of affiliate as well as increases visibility of your products.

    Facebook, Digg, Twitter, Linkedin etc are major social sites for building the relationships.

    Thanks 🙂

    1. That is correct must of us harness the power of social networking sites to promote and eve drive the sales of our products.

  13. Building relationship is very important in all aspect of our life. I do believe this is innate to human being. This seems to agree that by nature man is a social being. The same is true to blogging. Building relationship is fundamental.

  14. Yes, it’s true. You really have to do something to connect well to your readers. Having a good relationship was important in all aspects, in any relationship, so we must better stand on this kind of principle no matter what. Especially when you are in the online field. People from around the globe will really not know you so it was truly a good idea to have a good relationship with them through blogging and some other networking sites. Once you gain their trust, it was not so hard for you to offer them something, which will benefit you, of course.

  15. This is the best information I have gotten all day. This would be a great feature to add to my blog. Thanks 🙂

  16. The magic of keeping relationship lies in the smart way of dealing people and communication too. you should have a style and way of your own to attract people to your blog coz building relation is always helpful to you if you are in to marketing! Always hold your horse and think before you talk. And reply to those who are comment ed on your post but how you comment also matters! I mean the language. So be careful in that too.
