Ever since Facebook hit the scene, people have been flocking to all sorts of social networking sites. For business, there is 'Apsense', ‘LinkedIn‘, the new ‘ISMMagic’, the even newer ‘IBOToolbox’,'SWOM’,'Bizoppers’, ‘Google +’, et al. If you are not business oriented and just want to meet new people, there are always ‘MySpace‘ or ‘Twitter‘. The list goes on and on and on! Even ‘YouTube‘ and ‘Flickr‘ are getting in on the action! Sheesh! Is nothing safe anymore?
You have to be careful however, of what information you post. If you are a professional, you don?t want to post things like what you had for dinner or how upset you are at your kids or boss – especially your boss! You want to keep your appearances up. Remember, if you ever are looking for a new job, this potential employer will most likely look you up! And Facebook (and the other sites) are prime locations for someone to find out TONS about YOU! This goes for photos, too. It won?t look too good if you have pictures of your drinking binges or photos of you running around half naked.
Many people (myself included) have found social networking sites to be great sites to find new members for our businesses. One way of doing this is by creating ‘groups’ that you can send people who have expressed an interest in your product or service to. Here is your list of people who are interested in what you are offering!
Now you can then interact with them and find out what exactly they are looking for. You can give them information about your product or service and if they like it, you know they?re going to tell their friends. It’s what people do!
Some social networks have a twist to them that make them unique. They have taken the networking concept a bit further and integrated a way for you to make money! They pay you for talking to your friends.
How cool is THAT!?!
IBOToolbox pays you in credits that you can use for advertising. Now, this site has literally exploded in the past weeks. I call it ‘Facebook on Steroids’! The only downside that I see to ‘IBOToolbox’ is that you are limited on how many blogs you can post. They only allow 2 per day. If I were the creator, I might just up that to 5 posts a day or even 10 posts, depending on the amount of members or posts? you don’t want to clog up your server.
Another good social networking site that you can earn from is ‘ISM Magic’. ‘ISM Magic’ is:
Designed by internet marketers for internet marketers
3 ways to earn, referral and downline commissions plus activity bonus
Even free members can earn
Learn to be a marketing wizard at Magic School
Grow your business, as if by magic, with social networking
4 x 9 Midas Matrix with real time compression
In ISM Magic, you can get paid to socialize and potentially earn an income of up to $100k+.
Now wouldn’t it be great if Facebook did that? How rich would we all be? LOL!
IBOToolbox and ISM Magic are only two of the various social networking sites out there that make the claim that you can make money. I personally have only had this experience with these, you may know of others. If so, please let me know!
Here is a list of the social networking sites that I have mentioned. I would love to connect with you on any or all of them!
