Growing your followers exponentially

Seth Godin provides a nice blue print for growing your followers called First, Ten.

You may love your idea, but it doesn’t mean everyone will love it right away. What people need to realize is that products and services come out every day. Filtering out these products through friends and trusted sources is very important now.

Step 1: “Find ten people. Ten people who trust you/respect you/need you/listen to you… if they love it you win.”
Step 2: Challenge them to tell 10 people about it. Repeat. If they don’t love it, you need to either find a new product or keep fine tuning and repeat.

Doing this can be the cheapest market research you can buy.

    Nick,Thank you for inviting me to this blog. I think that its a good idea to get people involved in your project especially when they are your customers. So as goes live this weekend for its soft launch I have not done what you just did by inviting people to join in on a blog. I suppose that when I think about a blog I have been thinking about in terms of letting people know about what others are doing. I think that what I am doing is interesting but I don't think that the people who I want to reach want to read about what I am doing so I have chose our blog to be the platform for other people's stories. The trouble there is that any comment that is left is for the person being blogged about and not Fooducopia but that message does not reach the blogged about person. Do you think this is an adequate use of Fooducopia's blog?
