As you put yourself out there and start to learn new things, start offering your help to those in need that are open to your knowledge.
I can’t count the times that I’ve spent connecting with people in Facebook and Twitter and then gotten on the phone or Skype (karyrogney) with them and then helped them with some marketing strategies or guided them to tweak their tactics to improve their results with their business.
