The Power of Online Friendship

Written by Timothy Ward

Continued from page 1

It's actually easier than it may at first appear. All it takes is a little initiative. For example, how many times have you seen sections in ezines whererepparttar publisher mentions that he/she would welcome any feedback from subscribers? Also in every ezine, right. Well, this is an open invitation to start a friendship. You'd be surprised at how happy publishers get when they receive feedback from loyal subscribers. Most of them will probably write you back and thank you for your feedback, and they may even include some personal comments or ask you how you found out aboutrepparttar 125144 ezine, how long you've been a subscriber, what do you do onrepparttar 125145 internet etc. At this point you've got a conversation going, and a friendship flourishing. All you have to do is respond back and pretty soon you may be on your way to making a power friend.

Of course friendship is a two-way street. So if an ezine publisher helps you out by running your ad or giving you an endorsement, try to see if there is a way you can help him/her out. If you have a website, why not place a link to their ezine on it. Or forward a copy of their ezine to a few friends every week. By doing this you will be showing that you appreciate all thatrepparttar 125146 publisher did for you, and you will strengthen your online friendship, and soon both of you will be experiencingrepparttar 125147 power of a good friend.
