Grab a copy of my book, New Business Networking from Amazon today. I'm thankful to all of my wonderful readers.

C.C. and I talk about Never Enough Days.

We chat about the importance of really following our passions.

C.C. is a realistic, "Chase your passions, but you may have to do so on the side for a while."

"I wear my heart and passion on my sleeve."

Balancing practicality with passion is the scary hard thing.

CC Chapman interview on NBN RadioTake those risks earlier.

How to have a conversation with yourself.

Seth Godin’s lizard brain.

C.C. goes on walks in nature without devices to distract him from his thoughts. Do you?

Each and everyone of us get in our own way sometimes. It’s nuts!

James Altucher’s book, Choose Yourself!

We talk about overcoming self-doubt.

Don't miss C.C.'s book, Amazing Things Will Happen.

C.C. spoke about fear and self-doubt at Misfit Conf. Read his summary post here.

Admitting your self-doubt can help others.

My interview with Jason SurfrApp.

On balancing online and offline relationships. Getting lost in the click-stream.

C.C. loves Refresh, but they need an Android version. I hope Bhavin is listening.

He uses the LinkedIn Connected app to be alerted of job changes, promotions and birthday from his network.

He skips writing birthday posts on friend’s Facebook walls, and chats them Facebook Messenger instead.

Ask, “who can I introduce you to?” to people in your network. Maybe you can help them.

Check out Contactually as a great CRM solution to handle your follow ups. I'm a big fan and partner. You can hear my interview with Zvi Band in NBN28.

Export Facebook birthdays and important to your calendar, so you can have an overview of people’s birthdays and you can follow up before the big day.

C.C. uses his Twitter handle on every slide when he speaks at conferences. He always takes time to reply to each person who interacted during his presentation.

Always take someone’s business card and follow up the day you return home.

Talk to people at conferences. Start a conversation with the person next to you.

You are at a conference to be face to face with people. Try to keep your phone in your pocket.

You’re paying money to connect with the people in the room. You can watch the sessions online later. Ian Cleary doesn't even attend sessions, he only uses his time to meet people.

Create private Twitter lists of people you met at a conference. Read more on this here.

Ello, “a creative little commune that nobody has quite figured out yet.”

C.C. sets aside time each day to try new social sites, services and apps.

Pick up a copy of the best-selling book, Content Rules by C.C. and Ann Handley.

How content marketing applies to professional networking. Content is what you create to tell your story.

If we judged everybody by their LinkedIn profiles it would be pretty boring.

Avoid talking about politics too much online. It may get in the way of your networking and clients.

Research the content people have created before you meet them.

Focus on your website, email subscribers, and Twitter for your networking efforts online.

It takes time to build your network. It won’t happen overnight.

Give people a reason to subscribe to your email newsletter.

Subscribe to the Never Enough Days newsletter.

C.C. tries to read a physical book for thirty minutes before bed. You should too.

Ian ClearyIan Cleary is an award winning tech blogger and CEO of RazorSocial.com.  He is best known as the social media tools guy.

Talking about building a blog platform, reaching influencers, and social media tools

NBN 36 Show Notes

Join the NBN Club today and meet 100 smart minds who want to help you achieve your professional goals.

Listen to episode 36 in iTunes or Stitcher.

Don’t be shy record your audio comment or networking tip here.

Please pick up a copy of my book, New Business Networking: How to Effectively Grow Your Business Network Using Online and Offline Methods.

Ian and I begin by talking about Irish people, naturally (I lived in Ireland for a few years).

After 18 months of launching, RazorSocial.com was receiving over 100,000 unique visits per month.

Pick your blog niche that you have a strong interest and knowledge in, and one that isn’t really occupied by anyone else.

Ian created a list of 100 people he wanted to be friends with. He left to the States every month to attend conferences and network to promote his blog.

The relationships with the right people were more important than the writing.

Without the relationships nothing would have happened.

Ian's focus is always to determine how he can help someone.

Ian Cleary on NBNRadioThe more you help people, the more people want to help you.

Mike Stelzner let Ian provide guest blog posts on Social Media Examiner, which led people to his site.

Ian wrote guest posts on as many influential blogs as possible (close to 100).

<blockquote style="border: 2px solid #666; padding: 10px; background-color: #ccc;">My free blogging tutorial. It takes 10 minutes and is easier than you think. <a href="http://daveadelaney.com/set-up-a-blog/">Check it out.</a></blockquote>

How content marketing applies to real estate agents.

Which social network would Ian focus on most?

You always want to get people back to your website.

As a small business you don’t have time to be everywhere. Get one channel working for you first.

SocialBro - provides really good filters to find people on Twitter.

Ian wrote a blog post on a topic and used SocialBro to search bios for influential people who would be interested in his blog topic. He then reached out to the top ten most influential people to share his blog post via scheduled tweets.

Most of the content Ian shares is other people’s content first.

Ian uses Hootsuite and Bulk Buffer with Buffer to schedule tweets.

Ian managed different software, customer support and development teams. He has always been good at managing different teams of people and building relationships with each person.

Fun Fact: He sold property in Bulgaria.

When you reach out to an influencer and ask for something, you’re the same as 99 out of 100 people. If you really focus on how you can help them with your first interaction they will remember you.

Larry Benet was speaking at Social Media World. Ian shares how he was able to connect with him. Larry interviewed me at NMX, you can watch it here.

How can you stand out as an individual, and how you can you really help that other person - that makes a difference.

Ian shares how he balances his time.

Entrepreneurs need to be more productive and not think they must work longer hours.

If you set your deadlines and be ruthless with them, you will get the work done.

Erik Fisher submitted a question “What’s a good balance between finding new tools and leaning new tools?” (My interview with Erik here)

When you become known in a certain area, the information finds it’s way to you.

Ian uses Nimble to track the interactions he has with people. It keeps track of his social media interactions.

Check out Ian’s latest Google Analytics training course.
