Grab your lunchbox and a pair of slacks, we’re going hunting for diamonds (not real ones, I’ve lost my pick axe) but the diamonds that when we find them, will allow us to become socially and even financially richer.
Many would agree that the most effective method of building a new relationship with someone is by “giving”. Now this could include a wide range of things from leaving a comment on a blog, tweeting a post, becoming an active member and a hundred other things inbetween.

What’s this all about? well the foundation of relationship building should be localised around helping others around you. Depending on your personal skill set you can volunteer you’re services or assistance to a fellow blogger you feel may benefit from your help.
But what exactly could that be? each week I personally visit a large amount of new blogs, on a daily basis I notice opportunities that could help me start building a new relationship with the blog owner.
I might notice that the graphic they are using to promote their own product isn’t very eye catching or visually inviting as a potential prospect. That being said, when making intial contact you need to approach the topic in a friendly non critical way. Let me just say I’m not a professional designer or anything like that – but I’m no rookie either.
Offering assistance to someone else for free is a great relationship builder. Offering them help with no obligations works very well, nothing to loose but everything to gain. The blog owner can gain something for nothing (who doesn’t like that?) the reward is I now have the attention of someone within my niche. The relationship that can be built using this method is worth more than a thousand gold coins.

Fret not, there is another way. Sometime yesterday I used the same method but applied it in a slightly different way. I stumbled on a blog that was real quality, I left a comment on an interesting social media article. But after clicking back to the homepage and browsing more of the delicious content, my eyes fell victim to a wall of bright blue text – something didn’t feel right.
After taking a closer look, I discovered the blog was linking to a large selection of malicious websites. I was positive the blog owner didn’t know about this problem, so I sent them an email making them aware of what I had found.
It’s difficult to suggest what the outcome will be, but as I start to investigate further I noticed the blog was lying slightly dormant for the most part (what a shame). I’m really not expecting to receive a response from the blog owner, either way you can see the opportunities it can create.

As you can see their is no set way of building a new relationship with someone. By viewing all situations with eyes wide open, you will start to see beneficial ways of connecting with people without ever needing to send pesky emails.
As you browse your usual water holes (reading spots) try and capitalise on opportunities that you might have never noticed before. Just remember “The Diamond” is the oppernunity you use to connect with the person, “The Rough” is the environment in which you find them.
