Depends on the waters you intend to fish OR the waters in which you currently exist.

Since you used the word INFLUENCE, I may suggest creating some real form of credibility that will fuel your message.

But the traditional path of the real estate agent is to engage in puffery. I like the imagery of a puffery agent trying to catch smoke in a net.Maybe you won't want to do it that way.

Be visible, offer value without expectation. 

You can do this in real life by going and meeting people and doing things. Online, participate in local forums, comment on articles in the news, and so on.

 Are you trying to INFLUENCE or make genuine connections? Connections, relationships matter far more to me than just trying to have a massive number of meaningless contacts that I know nothing about and they know nothing about me. For me quality outweighs quantity by a wide margin.
