Hi I’m Brad West, I live in Las Vegas NV. with my wife Sheryl, daughter Cait, and my best friend Zed, our 30 lb black and white, English Jack Russel Terrier. I spent most of my life in the small town of Otis in Western Massachusetts. I have traveled through all but 4 of the lower 48 states during that time. I moved for a spell to Washington State where I met Sheryl and Cait. After enduring the lack of sun and excessive rain for a few years, we decided to go the other extreme and move to Las Vegas.

Not sure about you, but I would be more apt to respond to the Brad West that I may have some common ground with, or have a question about his life. I really have no real positive response to getting a link tossed at me. No reasonable human responds to a business offer unless they know who you are.
Say you are standing in line at the store, invited to a gathering with some new faces, or even pull up a bar stool beside a stranger. What do you do to introduce yourself? Possibly a little small talk about the weather, sports, or current events, then share your name possibly a handshake. Typically people will exchange information until they find some common ground. Believe it or not most of the time, money is that common ground. There are very few instances when meeting new people that "what do you do for a living?" is not brought up.
One of the most important and most widely overlooked aspects of networking, in any realm, is introducing yourself to others. One of the biggest reasons for this is people get so involved pushing their program, or business, that the possibility of making money clouds their vision of reality, rendering them as spamming losers. Knowing your business is not a bad thing, of course you need to know the ins and outs of your business and be able to reply intelligently when asked about different aspects of what you stand behind. But networking comes first in the social realm.
The forum, and social network intro is the same way. Present yourself first, share what you know and help people. You will be remembered in a more positive light. Sheryl did a little study awhile back when we were each involved with a couple hundred forum sites. She did nothing nut introductions and respond to introductions for a couple months. No ads and very little interaction in the main body of the board. The results were overwhelming as far as getting traffic to our sites. Yes they were all sig-line clicks, what a powerful little thing.
