People always want to have more friends or followers. There are many reason ego, distribution, being social and many more. But people usually hit a ceiling through traditional means (email checker, look at friends of friends etc..) so here are a few tips to get more.

1
Add your pages to your signature, blog, profiles, business cards, presentation and anything the public sees. I recommend sprucing them up a bit with a display Url that is more friendly but here are my links.


Twitter - www.twitter.com/gforst
Linkedin - www.linkedin.com/in/gforst
Facebook - www.facebook.com/people/Greg-Forst/502565050

Then my email signature looks like this


I do not add my Facebook link b/c I don't like to mix to much business in my Facebook account. Something to think about but always something you can add or take away as you want.

Then if you notice in the right rail of the blog I have a link to my Twitter account and my Linkedin account.

2
If you are a business search your current customer list to see if they are using the same networks as you. Then friend them.

3
Search social networks to find people talking about your product

This is pretty straight forward if you have a product find people directly talking about your product or industry and friend them, join the group, become a fan. (Again don't lampoon the conversation) . For example if you are in the Orlando vacation package business search around for people talking about Orlando vacations, Disney vacations, Universal vacations and so on.

Searching on Twitter is a question I get a lot. Here are two sites to use.

search.twitter.com (formerly summize - Twitter bought them)
www.twitscoop.com

Also check out Filtrbox. They do the dirty work for you and email you daily on what they find.

4
Look for old colleagues out there. Think about some of those great people you have meet and try to find them.

5
In the case of twitter and blogging post good content and people will find you.

Thanks for mentioning Filtrbox in your post. Here's a good tip if you are using Filtrbox - create a folder full of twitterID, and every day check out who else they are conversing with, and follow those people as well.

Our daily briefing emails give you a summary of the activity, and you can even re-tweet posts you like from our dashboard.
