Who is that influencer or thought leader or anyone you admire and like to connect with them❓


1️⃣. GRAB THEIR ATTENTION. Go to the person's timeline, especially on the social media platform where they less get encomiums. They would quickly notice you there and give you attention there than on other platforms where they have lots of followers with messages every day.


So far it is the person handling his/her account personally or even a handler, you should consistently engage at least 20 of his/her post in a row. 


Like them, comment on them meaningfully, and share them if shareable. Do this consistently every day and in less than 3 weeks the person will notice you▪️


2️⃣. Your profile picture, cover photo, bio, and posts must be meaningful and portray you as a valuable person. The reason for this is, that your account is what the influencer would first check and what he or she sees there will either make or mar the expected connection. Always remember, SUCCESS ATTRACTS SUCCESS▪️


3️⃣. VOLUNTEER for something in their programs, projects and some other things.


4️⃣. Be ready to GIVE VALUE to the person with what you have, rather than expecting to get it all the time. They also have needs, not only you need help. Anticipate their needs and meet them, within your means▪️


5️⃣. SIGN UP and ATTEND their events, courses and so on. Even, if it requires you to pay. Whether virtual or offline events or programs, make sure you attend and make meaningful contributions▪️ 


6️⃣PROMOTE THEIR WORKS, GIVE THEM TESTIMONIALS, AND include other means of BLOWING THEIR TRUMPET and making them feel impactful or influential.


7️⃣Last but not least, over time, your connection is built, then you can ASK THEM for a mention, promoting you or your stuff with their network or followers. Or what is the essence of connection without mutual benefits?


Now, which influencer would you like to connect with, try these steps out and see the results▪️
