" How to I get more views on my YouTube videos?""how can I get more tweets on twitter?"" how do I get people to read my blog?". These are the questions that loom in the back of the mind of each person striving to not just exist online, but to have a presence, and succeed, whatever that may mean to yhem...
While relaxing today, I watched Gladiator, one of my favorite movies, starring Russel Crowe. While viewing it I was startled to hear a line in the movie that offered some insight on how to become a social media expert. Following is the excerpt originally posted on my facebook page. Enjoy.

Elgin Bolling
MAXIMUS: You were a gladiator? PROXIMO: Yes, I was PROXIMO: . I wasn't the best because I killed quickly. I was the best because the crowd loved me. Win the crowd, win your freedom. MAXIMUS: I will win the crowd. I will give them something they have never seen before

Elgin Bolling WIN THE CROWD! thats talking about the online community who looks at your blog, your text messages, ALL the material you put out there.  Do things with THEM in mind, rather than always thinking about yourself! Give em something they've never seen before, and they go to your webinars, buy your ebooks, download your podcasts, comment on your you tube bids, tweet you, read your blog, and friend you on facebook. Apparently I have a long way to go....Heres to all you online gladiators out there!
