Free and Fun Internet Marketing Using Social Networks

Active Member Registered

Hello everyone!

I would like to own my very own small business; I've tried renovating old websites and made very little profit off of that and I also sell products on eBay. Little profits have come.

I hope to become a reputable member here on the forums and I wish to get to know each and every one of you.

Which Social Sites to use?

OK, so we have covered some general aspects of social networking and how it could be used for effective internet marketing. As a more specific example, we can look at a site like Facebook. It's the most popular social networking site with over 400 miillion users - yes 400 million - and of course you can use it for personal intentions, but it can also be used as an effective marketing tool for business. I have already mentioned that you can have two (or more) accounts to keep personal and business information separate if so wish.

When using social sites for business, you can update your status by adding posts when new events in your business are going on, such as the release of new products or services, new marketing collateral or brochures are published or when industry trade shows are on. The whole of your business network - clients, partners, suppliers, colleagues - can be kept up-to date on newsworthy events in your business, whether it's an online business, home business or just doing business offline. These opportunities can also be used as a reason to keep in touch more often with these contacts.

By the same token, you can use the same idea in conjunction with other social sites such as Squidoo or Twitter to enhance your marketing reach. When you blog, (which you should also be doing regularly) your newest blog posts should be linked to these social media sites as an update. You can also do this for guest blog posts you may doing elsewhere in the blogsphere.

You can have fun with this by highlighting contests, or introduce guest bloggers or mention other events by the groups or associations you are part of. You can even do podcasts (audio blog) and invite your contacts to listen in and learn more about your business.
