Internet-savvy marketing depends on the use of the most popular, social networking sites. You can advertise your business or service for free on social networking sites like Facebook, and MySpace, and target groups and individuals who might benefit from your goods or services.
You will need to use tact and patience when advertising on social networking sites. If you are advertising, try to be subtle, gathering a group of friends and colleagues to your page, and becoming chummy with them. After some time, you can let them know about your business and what you do, without seeming too mercenary or “all-business”. Taking the time to socialize with friends while letting them know about your enterprise is the best way to use social networking sites to their full advantage.
Once you’ve become close to people as Internet friends, you can go further with your marketing, perhaps by creating special “groups” for people who have the same interests as you do. By relating the group to your business, you can find an instant pathway to potential customers.
Social networking requires knowledge of proper Internet etiquette, and it also requires some finesse. If you can enjoy your Facebook and Myspace friends, while letting them know all about your business, then it can be a win-win situation and a very effective way to increase hits to your website. Simply post links to your website from social networking sites and you will find an instant increase in your visitors. Before long, if your website provides Google Adsense or some other form of money making enterprise, your income will increase and grow as well.
