Influence is difficult to determine online. Is that lady with 25,000 Twitter followers an influencer? What about if you have 15,000 RSS subscribers, are you an influencer? Many people mistakenly think that the more followers you have, the more influence you have, and some go to extremes to even buying fans. If you want to please your ego, you can certainly do that. However, in order to have a very effective network you need to concentrate on the quality not quantity of the followers.

Here is the script for your convenience:
There are two ways people end up with millions of Twitter followers. One of them is if you are a celebrity like Lady Gaga. The other is to have been lucky enough to be included on one of Twitter’s early “suggested” lists. If you don’t fall into either category, don’t waste your time trying to get 1 million followers. Instead, strive to create influence. Are you dominating the conversation about your topic? Will I find your name if I search your niche?
