Because of social media, the principles Dale Carnegie shared in his 1937 best-selling book, “How To Win Friends and Influence People” are more important today than ever. In my recent guest blog post at PureMatter.com, I shared these 7 principles that have worked very well for me. I think they'll work well for you too.

Seven Principles To Help You Reach Superhuman Performance on Social Media
Going back to basics
the Dale Carnegie way
From my guest post at PureMatter.com
Principle 1: Become genuinely interested
in other people, their platforms and what
they share on social.
“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested
in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people
interested in you.” -Dale Carnegie
Principle 2: Smile, be kind, and have
empathy for others on the digital
Ancient Chinese proverb, “A man without a smiling face must not open shop.”
Principle 3: Remember and use people’s
names and social media handles.
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name
would smell as sweet.” -William Shakespeare
Principle 4: Be a good listener, encourage
others to talk about themselves, and
always share their content.
“One of the sincerest forms of respect is actually listening
to what another has to say.” -Bryant H. McGill
Principle 5: Talk to people about their
interests and the content they share.
“Without a sense of caring,
there can be no sense of community.” -Anthony J. D’Angelo
Principle 6: Be Sincere. Make a person
feel important by what you say,
post and do.
“The desire to be important is the deepest urge in human nature.” John Dewey
Principle 7: Always try and do
the right thing.
“Do the right thing. It will gratify some people
and astonish the rest.” – Mark Twain
“Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.” -Albert Einstein
“Every man I meet is my
superior in some way. In
that, I learn from him.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
