  • I use the analogy of fishing. If you want to catch a lot of fish, you can’t fish in the pond with a bamboo pole. You have to fish in the ocean and cast a wide net. Your have a specific target however, and to hit the bullseye requires a more focused strategy.

  • 13. Passionates
    Passionates are people who care deeply about topics that are too niche to impact the mainstream zeitgeist. But within those areas of interest, they are acknowledged, respected, and taken seriously — even if their audiences are relatively small.  These are often “the original bloggers.”  Folks who care enough to create.
  • 14. Influencers
    Influencers are people who have large groups of followers, across different online strata.  They almost always started out as Passionates but have “crossed over” into a more mainstream role.  They are the tastemakers.  Sometimes they are part of the modern media but this is actually fairly rare.  The authority that an Influencer gained (while still a Passionate) has eclipsed traditional media’s credibility.
  • 15. Ad-Hocs
    Ad-Hocsare everyday folks.  They deserve attention, too — though that is very hard to scale.  By being patient and proactive with as many folks as possible, a brand marketer gains grassroots respect that is eventually noticed by bigger fish.
