Cali Lewis “My core value is to make people happy”: 7 Ways To Build An Audience
What do you want your audience to take away? asks Cali Lewis of GeekBrief TV (and fellow contestant for the Best Job in the World!). What do you offer of value?
Rule #1: Know thyself, know thy blog. Know who you are, and what you’re passionate about. What’s your mission? Art Predator: in search of the aesthetic–that which engages the whole soul.
Rule #2: Start compelling conversations. Remember it’s not just about you. It’s a conversation between you and your audience.

Rule #4: Make friends not fans. Meet face 2 face.
Rule #5: Reward participation! Create incentives for people to come to your blog over and over. Rewards, swag, and give-aways are great but so is acknowledgment and appreciation.
Rule #6: Take breaks. Give your audience a chance to miss you.
Rule #7: Always be upgrading.
