Social Networking Websites: How They Can Make You Money
Ok, by now you and your uncle should already be members in at least two social networking websites. These things are so popular now, that I am surprised that hardly anyone uses it to get a financial upper hand.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with using Facebook or Myspace to re-connect with family members, friends, or even to find jobs, but expand your thinking.
Welcome to the world of affiliates
Make sure that you find yourself a good product that you can earn off of. Wealthy internet companies are finding it much more cost effective to cut out middle men. This means that they rely on the general public to promote their businesses.
One simple way to accomplish this is through social networking. Most of the time it's a low risk investment, and you can affiliate yourself with as many as you like. You would be surprised how quickly the profits add up if you have a sound online business marketing plan.
Make the social networking websites your buddies
I cannot emphasize this enough: join as many networks as you can! Join one a day if you must. Every time you turn around there is a new one. If you're in it for profits, don't inflict injury on yourself by staying faithful to one social networking website.
Synchronized social networking
Now that you're members of all these networks, don't allow yourself to become overwhelmed. I use a tool called Buffer that allows me to connect multiple social networking websites and update my statuses on all of them. It's great because I only need to update in one spot, and the same communication is spread over many areas. Try it, and soon you'll realize that signing in to each social network isn't necessary.
There is so much more you can do with social networking. Don't work for it, make it work for you. Here I just touched on the basics; a simple guide to let you know if you're going in the right direction.
