Let me begin by telling you why this article is different than the other billion “How to Get 1000 Follower’s” articles out there. First off, I have grown a lot of different social networks and communities to 1000+ followers. I have grown a thousand plus followers onTwitter, Google+, Facebook, and recently a community within Google+. I have also built my own social network which now has more than 30,000+ registered users. If you still need more convincing and you’re one of those people that actually care, my Klout score is 56.
What I’m about to write comes from years of experience, hard work, and discovery. I want to pass on information that is different than all of the cliche digital media marketing tips that is floating around and actually give specific strategies that drive real results.
Today marks exactly 6 years of me using Facebook. I remember the days when my friends were talking all about Facebook and how much better it was compared to Myspace. I also remember the envy I had because I was one of the few who didn’t have an .edu account even though I was in college at the time. When Facebook finally opened its doors to the public I was a little reluctant to sign up. The exclusivity of Facebook had a slight backlash effect on me as I developed a bit of pride. Eventually, I signed up simply because all of my friends were using it and it was obvious that Facebook was not going away anytime soon.

In the end, I’m glad I took the time to go through it all because surprisingly I learned a lot. If you were not able to attend the class, here is a brief synopsis of the types of things I learned.
