There has been quite a buzz about social networking and whether it’s a waste of time for your business. Can you really market effectively on social networking sites? How is this possible? Most people believe that these sites have a lot of people that are attempting to sell their opportunity to each other.
However, statistics show that there are 75,000 people/day looking for home based businesses. I’m sure this number is growing daily especially with 70,000 layoffs on Bloody Monday. What a better place to find these people than on social networking sites! The key is to find your target market and focus your efforts in those areas. Here are some of the sites that I visit and have had many people join my business opportunity.
Myspace – This is my #1 lead source for my business in the social networking arena although many people continuously bash Myspace. That’s ok because I’ll just take that business, thank you very much!
Twitter – is the newest buzz word in the neighborhood and I’ve actually had a few sales from this source already! Make sure to check out my Twitter tips to grow your business. I also highly recommend following Mari Smith on Twitter and Facebook. She gave me all the tips for my Facebook business page.
Sta.rtup.biz – is a great place to meet like-minded individuals and those looking to start a new business. I’ve received my largest amount of traffic from posting this article to this site. I also gained 700 new Twitter followers from one twitter blog post on this site!
Youtube – videos are the wave of the future. Many people love watching videos more than reading content so this is a great avenue to promote your business.
Here are some professional networking sites that you can align yourself with potential business partners.
One of the main keys to success is to plan. Many people spend too much time on the social networking sites and do not get much done with their actual business. I’m not advocating joining every single site but choose a select few and focus on them.
Be sure to allot a certain amount of time for each site so you don’t run into the problem of spending all day on certain sites. For example, I try my best to get on Twitter in the morning, afternoon and evening for 10 – 20 minutes each time. This allows me to interact with different people as there are different high traffic times for Twitter.
My top places to visit on a daily basis are Twitter, Facebook and Star.tup.biz. Go make some friends as people are more inclined to buy from people they know. Which ones are your favorite social networking sites?
I’ve been really surprised at how much business that I’ve generated from social networking sites such as Myspace and Facebook. This article really goes into the nuts and bolts of how to make money on Myspace. I thought I’d give you about 20 pages to read and you can choose if you want to read more or just move on. Happy Reading and Enjoy!

Everyone is looking for ideas to tap into this market. I have received several emails for more posts on how to effectively target the social networking sites. Here are a few tips that I use on a consistent basis so get your pen and paper out and take some good notes!
1. Communication should be meaningful and helpful at all times
2. Leave a signature line with your website info in all of your communications
3. Have a personal touch, for example I send out birthday wishes for my friends
4. Look for groups/categories that could use your product and connect with them
5. Become Group Leaders for Different Areas that you specialize in and invite people to join
6. Post relevant, useful comments on blogs, hubpages, mixx pages, etc. and send private messages (do both)
7. Add new content to your site regularly so this gives people a reason to come back
