6 Tips for Creating “Sticky” Social Relationships

by Brett Borders on August 24, 2009

Every day, around 30 new people follow me on Twitter. Then around the exact same number of people usually unfollow me. They’re apparently upset that I haven’t blindly reciprocated their “friendship,” despite the fact that they’ve never even said “hi” or interacted with me. They’re so obsessed with numbers games… that they don’t seem to understand the most basic social networking principle, where you have to be sociable and personally interact with people before you win their trust and friendship.

Social Marketing = Constant, Conscious Personal Interaction

Social relationships evaporate quickly. Personal interaction is the “glue” that holds them together. image: imelda

Take a moment to think of the “people online you actually care about.” Usually, the important folks are those who have taken the time to personally interact with you or acknowledged you (recently). These are people you’re willing to help out and stand up for. When you’re under pressure or pressed for time, the people who haven’t interacted with you become second-class “nobodies” who are incredibly easy to ignore and forget. No matter how cool or famous they are.

Here are 6 tips for cultivating authentic, long-term, “sticky” personal connections – and maintaining them:

  1. Send a quick personal note every time you follow / fan / friend someone.
  2. Don’t just blindly add people without interacting with them – and don’t dare send Auto DMs or cookie-cutter messages. A quick, personalized friend request note that says “We met last week at the Social Media Meetup, enjoyed discussing design with you. Let’s keep in touch?” or an @reply saying “Cindy, you always find the hilarious side of mundane situations. It’s a pleasure to follow you! ” or “Just checked out your Flickr photos. Amazing mountain shots!” is enough to make a strong, personal impression. Then most people will take a moment to check you out or take your request seriously.

  3. Leave a quick comment on friends’ blogs every time you stop by.
  4. If you’re already wasting two minutes to check out a blog post, why not go all the way and take another 30 seconds to leave a quick comment? This will transform you from an anonymous nobody to a friend and supporter, who is a valuable and unforgettable part of their online social community. This isn’t just altruism, it quickly builds up your own reputation & social karma card. (Tech tip: easyComment plugin for Firefox makes entering your name and e-mail address quick and painless.)

  5. Retweet, link to & talk about what other people have to say.
  6. Don’t be totally self centered. Link out to what other people have to say about topics you’re interested in. Retweet content you feel is worth sharing or endorsing. Forgetting to do this is the online equivalent of going to a cocktail party and launching into an endless monologue about yourself.

  7. Respond to everyone who reaches out. Don’t drop the ball.
  8. The deeper you get into the social web, the more “requests” will start to show up in your inbox and in DMs and @replies. People are usually reaching out to ask for something, says Jemimah Owyang. Try to get back to everyone who sends you a heartfelt (non-copy-and-pasted) request… but don’t be afraid to say “no,” be very brief in your response, or propose payment if someone is asking you to embark on a non-trivial consulting project. If you accidentally ignore someone a couple of times, they’ll likely start to “forget about” you.

  9. Never pitch someone without getting to know them.
  10. An essential, but widely overlooked marketing principle is to give before you try and get. At the very least, before you pitch someone with a proposal that will benefit you – you need to take a few minutes and get to know (about) the person you’re asking. It’s tacky and rude to request something of a blogger or power user without knowing their name and what they do. Don’t think of pitching / requests as a one-time hustle – think of it as building the recognition and trust from someone who can help you over the long-term. You never know when you’re gonna need their help again – so first impressions are huge.

  11. Be grateful and explicitly thank people.
  12. When someone does something for you – like promotes your content or links to you – don’t forget to thank them! A little recognition and gratefulness creates a powerful reinforcement for more positive action – and it goes a long way towards making sure that person doesn’t forget you. (Big thanks for @mnphysicist and @MoneyEnergy for reminding me to add this supercritical, relationship-cementing tip.)

It’s A Jungle Out There. Be Human.

People are blitzed each week with thousands of messages online, a large percentage of them are bogus & unsavory ones. For every genuine person who wants to connect, there’s a dozen marketing hustlers on Twitter trying to blindly build up their numbers, or spammers dressed like hot chicks on Facebook… or wealthy Nigerian benefactors.

If you want to build a potent, responsive social network… the most important thing is to be social and show that you’re a real human. Communicate, comment, and show concern and care for people – and pace yourself to keep doing it. It’s not easy, but it’s the only way to build real trust and long term social capital!

What are you thoughts on winning people’s trust online? How about keeping relationships from evaporating once you’ve established them?

    Brett, I pop by and read your site every once in a while, but I rarely (if ever) comment. Well, this line really got to me: “If you’re already wasting two minutes to check out a blog post, why not go all the way and take another 30 seconds to leave a quick comment.”

    So here’s your comment, buddy. Thanks for the great article. I’ll send out a tweet as well. :)

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    Thanks a lot. Social media and comments are the way of putting your
    name out there and letting people know you’re alive and receiving the
    signal. I had stopped by your blog once before
    but my brain got so swamped with signals that I had forgotten about it
    for a while. No more. The connection was re-made. I’m subscribed@!


  • http://glennhilton.com Glenn Hilton

    Hey Brett, for point #1, I’d add that if someone’s sending a DM on Twitter that they make sure they mention your name and/or some specific details that would let you know it’s not an auto-DM that get’s ignored.

    Also I like the concept of responding personally to everyone, but how realistic it it? With all the work we have to get done each day and all the relational demands on our time required to keep our family relationships and friendships healthy, how do you balance that with trying to follow up every person that follows you in the social media realm?

  • http://www.biggerpockets.com Joshua Dorkin

    Great tips, Brett! Like Nate, your message about wasting a few minutes to check a post caught my eye as well. If we all took the extra minute to add our thoughts, the social web would explode (in a good way, of course!). I’ll be tweeting this as well!

    Nice list! You have summed it up well. There’s more to be said about treating people equally, too, probably. Also, it’s really good to hear “thanks” when you/someone has gone out of their way for you with a RT or recommendation or linking to your blog, etc.

    Also, don’t just interact or favorably treat people who are supposedly “more important” in your network, especially when others have treated you just as well as these have. I’ve seen people who get attention for xyz when I know others in the same network doing xyz just as well and no one acknowledges it.

  • http://ctotodevelopers.blogspot.com isacolick

    Some good tips – following your #2 “Leave a quick comment on friends’ blogs every time you stop by.”. The hard part of what you recommend is just optimizing your time against these objectives. And don’t we all wish this was accepted practice – “Don’t ever pitch someone without getting to know about them.”

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    Yes, that’s huge and super-critical to make your interaction messages
    sincere and personal. Tailor made. No Auto DMs – FORE SURE! I’m
    updating the post to clarify that.

    In terms of responding to everyone, I make it a point to try and
    answer all hand-written e-mails and sincere “reaching outs.” You
    don’t have to respond to every little bit of chit chat or ever @reply
    all the time, but if someone is sincerely asking for your help and
    reaching out to you… it’s really a best practice to follow through.

    It’s a really tough ballgame to play as the volume of signals
    increases – but outright flaking / ignoring people seems to wrack up a
    lot of “bad impressions” I can’t afford, so I try and avoid.

    The amount of time needed to play the “social media marketing” game well is ridiculous, almost trans-human. And it can really eat into the workday. I have no arguments with that.

    I swear it’s not just a subliminal poly to get mroe comments on this post ;)

    It’s just about getting in the SOCIAL habit of leaving your name and your thoughts tagged all around the web, plastering your name wherever you go.. it ultimately helps build YOUR name a lot biggers and develop much stronger relationships – and you ultimately “get” something out of reading people’s blogs – rather than just lurking anonymously! you get the information, promote your name and make a connection with the authors (who can probably help you down the line, maybe).

    it’s blog style, more than ‘skimming the newsstand’ style ;)

    p.s. maybe put a link in your Disqus profile so I can check your site / Twitter profile easier?

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    Thanks a lot! Glad I got a second to see you on Twitter and find out who you are and what you do on the Web. Now I know who I can send people to for inspirational short stories.

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    No doubt that social marketing and participation takes time. It reminds me of that old George Harrison song “Got my mind set on you” where he says:

    “It’s gonna take time. A Whole lot of precious time. It’s gonna take plenty of time. To do it, to do it, to do it right!”

    The way I recokn, though, if you took the time to read it – might as well leave your name / picture there and get some benefit from it. I see leaving a comment as a free personal branding and advertising opportunity not to miss – not to mention building a relationship with the content creators. thanks for your commentz !

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    ‘Thanks’ is huge. It should probably be the 6th point. Thanking people is very important and a good way to establish feedback. While it might be more difficult to thank everyone for every mention than to respond to personal requests, I’d through “thanking” people in the category of “as much as possible!”

    Also avoiding classism and snobbery I hate classism and snobbery when they are turned against me – it is very alienating and painful – so it pays to treat people equally indeed. People who get paid less attention to will defintiely appreciate your consideration and remember you!

    Excellent point & comment – thanks for your contribution!

    As far as the workload goes… if someone rises up out of the noise, to me its well worth taking a couple minutes and acknowledging them. I find insights and such well beyond what an individual twitters bio would suggest once engaging them.

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders

    I wasn’t aware of the 5 levels of bonding, but your list seems pretty accurate.

    The goal is to keep people connected with you, and to keep them from forgetting about you entirely – which can be really difficult is such and impulsive and distractable world.

    Great tips, Brett.

    Creating social relationships online is really no different than how you’d develop and nurture a relationship offline. Act as if you’re at a cocktail party. Be respectful and polite. Make introductions. Engage in conversation. Be…. human.

    It should be a no-brainer, yet for many, the hardest part is taking everything they’ve learned about marketing and flushing it down the toilet. Ridding oneself of the old tactics and robotic conversational tone of yesteryear isn’t an easy task, but I speak from experience when I say, it’s downright refreshing! :)

    As you get more involved in the social sphere it can be difficult to keep up with responding to everybody by email, twitter, facebook etc but I agree that it is important to take a little time out of your day to ensure that you reply to those that are trying to connect with you.

    Great post!

    So you want a comment on your blog? Fine, you get a comment on your blog. I agree with your techniques for making social networking successful (which come down to bringing the humanity back into the relationship, I think) but I have to note that people who rigorously follow your advice will vastly increase the amount of traffic and general overhead of comments, tweets, etc. Let’s just hope they’re all informative and have something to say. Let’s hope this comment does!

    It *is* so tough and counter-intuitive for a lot of people to ditch the “broadcast” marketing training. Also social marketing takes a lot more personal energy than most people are accustomed to giving. I think of it like training for a marathon. Grueling to train for, but downright refreshing once you get into the zone!

    I agree with all the content on this blog.
    Surprisingly, there are people who actually make it difficult to comment on the blog.

    Makes you forget what you were going to say by the time you have gone through all the motions!

    These aren’t mandates, they’re just “best practices” aimed at newer users who never respond to people (might not know how) , don’t leave comments, only talk about their own site or content. If people follow them more, they will have improved online social connections – guaranteed!

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    I didn’t wanted to write a snarky, condescending title to this post but some original ideas were ‘Newsflash: Social Marketing Requires Being Social!” and “Recipe for Failure: Social Marketing without Talking to anyone.” So many people appear to be running blind and approaching social marketing with a very “anti-social”, non-conversational tone.. i felt like somethng had to be said.

    Another good post Brett. I definitely agree with your that it’s important to be human and interact as much as you can, but I would disagree slightly with your first point. While I concur that it is good etiquette to respond to new people you’re following it can also come across very forced and fake if it’s not natural for you to do so, especially if you feel obligated. I think on this point, it’s good to do what feels right for you. I know for me, I sometimes follow a new person because they simply seem interesting, but don’t see a good connection point right away, however, having said that, I do love when new people do take the time to make themselves known to me.

    Hi Brett — really good stuff here, two thumbs way up! I agree with your points and have found that the more visibility via social media and offline activities, the more the demand for engagement increases. I strive to respond to my @’s and DMs… but both my regular and Facebook email are most challenging to keep on top of, even with a whole team. I much prefer the efficiency of DMs! :)

    As for trust, I believe that comes from making and keeping small agreements. But to your question about keeping relationships from evaporating – I really find the 80:20 rule kicks in no matter what. Studies have shown we can typically only maintain relationships with around 120-150 people. For a natural Connector that number may be double. Even so, I actually think it’s not humanly possible to nurture relationships with thousands or tens of thousands 1:1… we simply have to move to 1:many which is why blogging and microblogging and speaking are so effective!! :)

    @marismith ~ I’m following you on Twitter now! Glad to meet via @Mike_Stelzner. :)

    So many people approach “social” marketing with very little
    communication or compassion. They think it’s a script or a slot
    machine, rather than a matrix of humans with social needs and feelings.
    It would seem obvious, but sometimes it does need to be written down,
    apparently. We’re all relatively new to this and the “rules” are still
    being written.

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders

    I totally feel you on forced conversations. They suck and can feel
    laborious to ‘chit chat’ with everyone

    This isn’t a list of mandates, but rather, best practices for
    beginners. If you don’t care if the other person notices you, it’s
    fine not to speak with them. Just don’t expect to grow some kind of
    “core group member” relationship with a person you never speak to.
    It’s fine just to listen.

    but if you really want someone’s attention, the best way is to talk
    with them – that’s all ;)

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    i swear that suggestion just isn’t for my benefit. I want to know who
    is in my community and know what they do and can offer. If people
    never leave their name and picture behind, there is no
    community and no connections! If you read blog, make the connection.
    It’s well worth it and has made me a lot of close friends and allies.

    It must be a grind to respond to all the requests and chit-chat, especially with the number of people you follow (20x more than me). I have a much smaller network and the time-sink can feel very substantial.

    I also agree it’s not possible to have relationships with more than a couple hundred people, so I think it’s the zen of picking the “right” 50 to 150 or so people to in tight with – and being cordial enough to not get the rest of them mad at you by ignoring them or breaking promises. ;)

    Personally I think social relationship is a huge lesson, while also something I enjoy learning and doing everyday. Sincerity, selflessness and initiative do take a big part in this. I agree, sometimes it’s not all about the big people, but those who are willing to connect and spend time to get to know you are always the ones we remembered and well treasured. I understand not everyone get the time to drop a few words, or to say hi.. but once they do, I will always keep that at heart. ^^

    Thank you Brett, have always enjoyed your friendship as well. Keep up the good work!

    Wow Brett these are some fantastic pointers and I have to say, I was blown away by the amount of comments – value shows well!

    I definitely agree that we have lost a lot of the personal touch, but not just online. You can see this vividly in everyday life. So yes it is nice to be personable for sure.

    Funny that on Twitter people care that much for follows back. The way I look at Twitter is follow me if you are interested in what I have to say, and I follow those who I am interested in what they are saying. That is not meant to be snobby, but the point of real genuine relationships is to add people into our lives who add value. But people are so quick to take things personally. If I talk about health and one is interested then wonderful, but if you talk about say how to make necklaces and that doesn’t interest me, you should not take it personally that I don’t follow.

    I guess in the end, this builds the real readers and followers, vs the ones who are doing it only for numbers.

    Everyone wants to be accepted, to be included, to be popular. It seems we sometimes get in such a rush to gets our own name and content out there, we sometimes forget about other people.

    I agree that people take the mutual following thing too seriously. They see it as a “surefire path to building popularity” via numbers… but sometimes that doesn’t result in a potent, powerful coer network of people who really care and are willing to help when the going gets tough.

    That’s what I’m after.

    p.s. Nice wellness site. Thanks for commenting, and thus giving me a chance to check it out !

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    For me the harder part is maintaining the relationships. It’s very fast paced and fickle out there. If you aren’t talking to someone for 3 months, or fail to leave comments on some posts- they will genuinely forget and let their attention wander over to some new flames.

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    I think a lot of people don’t intuitively understand the social side of social marketing. Especially people from advertising backgrounds, who just see it as a new way to broadcast and advertise.

    thanks for leaving a comment + giving me a chance to check out your Tumblr blog!

  • http://sashakovaliov.com/ Sasha Kovaliov aka nlupus

    Brett, it might be true, but we have to check :)

    The tumblr blog is used as a personal search engine – a pretty slick way to forget about the bookmarking and syncing headache. I’ve recently rolled out http://sashakovaliov.com – trying to get the feel of blogging myself.

    Thanks for the great tips, Our downtown group is pretty new to twitter and stilling learning all the ropes, this helps

  • http://www.foodgal.com/ Carolyn Jung

    All very good tips. I especially like the one about being more human. I think we sometimes get lulled by the ease of technology, and write or say things before we really think them through. It’s so easy to fire off the first thing that comes into our head. Not always the wisest move, though. I’m glad you reminded people how important it is to show concern and care for people. After all, technology should make us more human, not less so.

  • Tara

    good article. thank you.

    good post, as usual. it seems that SM is like the real world in some other ways, too. just like most of us would never shout an obscenity or flip off a person who cut you off while walking down a path, the minute you repeat the same interchange from behind the wheel of our cars, all bets are off. we become isolated and shielded from others and suddenly don’t see the person driving the car, but only the car itself. SM is like that from where I see it. we are no longer talking face to face, but rather face to screen. flaming others or forgetting social manners becomes easy.

    what if each of us spent an hour each week getting coffee with 1-2 new followers from Twitter, getting to know them as people…


  • Shane Norris

    Originally everything was face to face,
    then came the postal system, the telegraph, the telephone, the email, the instant message, and now its the tweet.
    At each step the amount of forethought required to reach out and communicate has become less and less. Meanwhile the formalities of meeting someone in person have staid relatively constant.

    I must confess to not putting anywhere near the kind of thought into sending off a tweet in the past as I would to approaching someone face to face.

    lesson learned

    Brett — being a fellow “rockstar” myself (…no I don’t play in a band, but it’s an inside joke worthy of sharing over a beer sometime), I felt compelled to read through your site.

    You’ve obviously nailed this topic. I read every comment (took me longer than reading the article). The one thing I noticed… is that no one noticed or mentioned your supporting “glue” graphic. Let me be the first to acknowledge I love this graphic and feel it’s just as important to have a picture that’s perfect for the written words that surround it.

    It takes me sometimes longer to get the graphic then to write the article… Looking at your blog, my favorite pic was:

    This is my new favorite blog site and plan to share with many of my followers.

    Keep up the great work!!!

    Something about sitting in front of the computer feels “cold” and “anonymous” – and we forget we’re dealing with real, sensitive people with needs. Social media requires social graces!

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    In the early-to-mid 90s, online etiquette was .. by-and-large… caveman style. Screaming, shouting, fighting, cursing, and insulting your momma. People thought of social media more like an anonymous video games where you could shoot at other players and ‘blow them up.’

    It seems like a new standard of kindness and transparency is cementing into place these days – and people are being more polite.

    Think meeting your Twitter friends is a great idea to keep it real. Let me know if you’re ever down.

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    Excellent observation about how technology makes it easier to communicate and therefore, less formal. When people paid $49.99 to send a 240 character telegram, it had to be thoughtful. Not so with a Tweet!

    You don’t have to be fake, but I always try and remember I am dealing with other sensitive people who will oftentimes “read into” what I write unless I make it clear.

  • http://socialmediarockstar.com Brett Borders


    Social relationships fall apart and lose the “stick” factor without constant contact. How many of your friends frmo Junior High school do you know anything about anymore? (Only the ones you’ve kept in contact with. .the rest are distant memories).

    Yeah, graphics take a lot of time. I want them to be eye-popping and memorable, it really helps inspire people to share the content more readily.

    Thanks for your comments and support – I’m following you on Twitter and look forward to hearing more from you!

  • http://www.littmannweddings.blogspot.com MarcLittmann


    Would love to get coffee sometime–I am in Boulder much of the time. I am a Boulder native who can’t afford to live there anymore, hence the short trip up to Longmont.

    Someone posted a while back (was it you?) about a company you could send a greeting card to after they chose to follow you in Twitter. I like the idea, but then again if it is automated, it will be no more than just an expensive autofollow responder, lacking any personal touch or interest in that other person. Are there any other companies out there offering services that do this in a positive way?
