Say what you want about Ocho or Chad or whatever he’s calling himself, his grass-root knowledge is something that all “professionals” could stand to learn from him. He recently offered 200 of his followers a free dinner to a popular restaurant in New York. This isn’t the first time he has done this either. Here is what he did and has done should tell us:
– Build a following through genuine interaction with whomever follows you.
– Notoriety helps. He’s famous so he already has a massive amount of followers. If you don’t engage with interesting useful content.
– Be nice. From what I’ve observed Ocho is very nice to everyone he interacts with on Twitter.
– Free giveaways. I’m not saying you have to buy out a restaurant for a night, but I’m sure a book or t-shirt giveaway would entice your followers.
-Give your phone number out. (Kidding. Or am I?…) Apparently he gave out his number. Perhaps if you have a business or whatever give out your number and ask people to call. Maybe it could generate some new business or relationships for you.

That’s all, I’m done.
