Never forget to thank a person on his motivating comments and try to make a such a beautiful reply that he/she must compel to ask about you in the follow-up mail. Ignore writing long descriptions and always make your replies short and simple. None can interest your long and stretched messages, therefore focus on quality rather on quantity. Be prompt to reply the messages of influencers and do not expect from them that they will reply back each of your mail or message. Do not send spam e-mails, spam are considered objectionable and can annoy the influencers. There should be a separate e-mail for each influencers with a personal feel, but it may happen that some of these influencers take time to respond then avoid sending the same mail again. If you can't create something new and unique then it is better to keep patience and wait for the reply.
