Where Do YOU find Your Contacts?

by Anna-Marie Stewart Venton

This is a question I have been asked over and over again. It's quite simple to answer, too. I chat! That is basically all I do in my pursuit for getting contacts. I find people via chats, be it chat downloads, yahoo, get paid chats, msn messenger, any of them.

It's personal, it's friendly, people get to know each other so much better than through emails. I love to chat with other online marketers. It's great for sharing hints, tips, ideas and information. Some of the people you meet seem to know so much more than you, and if you take the time, you can really learn a lot just by listening.

You can turn your contacts into joint venture partners, downline members, prospects etc. and it's all mutual. My ezine came about through chat, just by listening to the wants and needs of other entrepreneurs like myself. I listened, and worked from what I heard. I've seen people start joint ventures, programs of their own and all sorts of good stuff, just through making chat friends. It is REALLY worth trying for yourself.

Sure, carry on with whatever promotional methods you are using right now, but try chatting with others on a personal level, find out what's working for them and what's not. You'll be surprised by the results. I, personally, have found that I get much better results via chats than any other form of free advertising I've tried, and believe me, I've tried tons in my almost 4 years online.

Just remember to always be polite, never hype. Be honest, and most of all: Be Yourself. But anyway, in case you DO want to try your hand at chat, here's a quick crash-course in chat terminology:
