|People come to Ryze and other social networks with personal preconceptions that prevent success. |
It's NOT ABOUT YOU.
It's not about your ADVERTISING.
The first things you need to do help you to find out where you are, and what Ryze (in this case) is like. "Seek first to understand" says Steven Covey. Please take his advice.
DO something, to help you learn what Ryze is and does.
1. Join at least TEN networks.
Then do some reading, find out what's of interest. I mean what sorts of topics are discussed and were advertising is allowed and not allowed, and then find experienced people. (They are usually the ones writing the interesting posts.)
Visit the Ryze homepages of at least 30 experienced Ryze members. Note the NAMES of the ten people with the best pages.
Go back to those pages and try to work out why those pages are "Best" in your view. You probably can't do as good as that yet, but in a year or so, you page will be "best" too.
So that's the next task. Your own Ryze page.
The header of this Network says;
"Thanks for Joining - Let's DO Something
Use your real name - build trust
Be a real person - not your business
Come willing to learn
Restrain the urge to advertise"
2. Then it lists six things to do, and gives the link to follow.
"Complete your personal info. http://www.ryze.com/userinfo.php
Include a photograph of YOU http://www.ryze.com/photoedit.php
Write 15-25 lines about yourself http://www.ryze.com/edit.php
Edit the Have / Want lines http://www.ryze.com/edit.php
Open your Guest Book http://www.ryze.com/preferences.php
Join at least TEN Ryze networks - You did do that didn't you?
That's about a month's work for most people, two days for some.
3. If you've got time:
Collect some simple statistics from a few Ryze pages.
Number of networks Joined
Total Guestbook entries
Number of friends
Prove to yourself what works.
You'll find that 80% of Ryze members remain forever newbies, they NEVER find out how to use Ryze. Most people after four years have mad a months worth of progress.
18% of people do a good deal better than that. But I want to point to the top 2%. They make remarkable and rapid progress. They do it by doing very simple things. They are not wonder-kind. They simply communicate easily and well in a conversational way with lots of people.
You can do that too.

|Hi John...I am trying to follow your to-do-list. Thank you so much for putting all this info together! |
I can't seem to get a personal pic on the site. I have tried several times and can only get my logo. I'm not sure why because I believe they're the same size.
Have a great weekend!

|Thank you for the information. It's very comprehensive but a little overwhelming. |
Is there a program that would allow me to read my Facebook or Twitter page and the post as well? I have a program that allows me to post but not read my pages.
