Have you noticed how everyone seems to be promoting products about how to make money online with free online social networking sites and especially Facebook at the moment? Since I have been away for a couple of weeks in not so sunny Spain my inbox has been flooded with promotions for Facebook products.
So although Facebook has been used for keeping in touch with friends and family why has it suddenly become the darling of internet marketers? Daniel Thorley has written a great article that explains it all that I would like to share with you today.
Free online social networking sites can help you become successful in business no matter what you might be looking for. While the name ‘social networking’ might give you the inclination that it is only for socialization, businesses stand to gain a lot of interest and profits by utilizing these tools to socialize with their customers and potential customers.
Free online social networking sites include sites like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. These websites have become very popular because of their many features and social networking tools. However, each is a little different so it has its own advantages and drawbacks.
Using free online social networking sites, you can connect with potential customers, current customers, and other associates that you might have business relationships with. You can discuss all the details about your business, get people interested in what you do,and seal the deal by making a sale and converting them to your side of the fence.
You can advertise specials, update changes using the short feed of Twitter, and even make announcements on social networks to help your business grow and thrive. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that if people love social networks, that’s where businesses need to be in order to get their attention.
Here’s the deal. We’re in a new time, a time where people want to feel like they can trust their merchants, the people who provide their services and goods, and anyone that they work with on a professional level. You no longer have to just have the best item or the lowest price. You have to be able to be trusted. In a world like the internet where there is so much anonymity, people just want someone to trust for all the things that they need online.
Use free online social networking sites to get to know people, connect with them on a more personal level, and gain their trust. There is nothing that is more important than establishing your reputation and rapport with your potential clients or customers.
It doesn’t matter whether you have a business selling physical goods or if you are just in affiliate marketing because you can’t win people over without reaching out to them and making connections.
Online marketing is tired, it’s been done, and it certainly isn’t producing results like it used to. While those PPC ads and banner ads might work every now and then, social networks are going to be a very useful marketing tool that works all the time to increase sales and traffic.
