One of the things I get asked often is, “Out of the people who follow you on Twitter, how do you determine who to follow back?” Prior to a few weeks ago, that answer was, “Everybody.” I had this notion that I would follow everyone who would follow me and then use lists to suss out who I really wanted to listen to versus those that I wanted to tune into sometimes. Unfortunately, that method turned out to be the incorrect path for me. This episode explores how to analyze people before following them on Twitter.

I actually covered today’s topic in a blog post but it was so often referenced that I wanted to also cover it in the podcast to further explore this concept. The “If You Build It, They Will Come” Idea Most entrepreneurs freeze up at the point of having to sell their product and / or service. They have worked tirelessly on educating themselves about their industry, the skills they’ll need to service clients, product development, etc. but very few people think about what they will do when it comes time to stop working ON the business and turn to working IN the business.

Print media is one of those things that you either use a lot in your business or that you don’t use at all. Print media is expensive so for many entrepreneurs, it’s not a logical choice. Especially given that you can get the same results, sometimes, from an online medium. However, there are specific instances where print media is required and may help your business. I received a question on my Formspring account, which you can reach at www.formspring.me/erinblaskie, which asked, “What are your thoughts on print media as a form of advertising?” This podcast episode answers that question.

I received a question on my Formspring account, which you can reach at www.formspring.me/erinblaskie, which asked, “You spend a lot of your time helping people, responding to questions, making recommendations and providing really useful tips… to strangers and you do it with such passion. How fulfilling is it personally and for business?” This is such a great question because a lot of times, entrepreneurs can get so focused on crushing it for cash that they forget that there are other ways to go about doing business. This podcast episode focuses on that question.

Remote teams are basically made up of individuals or companies who provide you with services to keep your business running. Since these people are going to be so greatly invested and integrated into your company, you need to have good systems in place to manage the teams and the workflow.

Social media is overwhelming. Let’s face it – with hundreds of sites out there and everyone pushing you in the direction of their favorite, it’s not hard to get completely stressed out by the experience. The thing is, if you aren’t doing social media, you are going to get left behind and the longer you leave it, the harder it is to jump in and catch up on the conversations. I received a question on my Formspring.me account which asked, “How do I decide which are the best social media sites to take part in?” This podcast episode answers that question.
