Social Networking and Marketing

I have been marketing via social networks for about a year now and I must say that in addition to being effective, it is also fun. I am meeting people that I otherwise would never know and what I am finding out is that social networks offer a unique way to brand yourself. It allows others to get to know who you are and what you stand for. I find that most people will ask me what I do for a living and when I tell them they often go to my various sites and purchase something. I am happy I discovered social networks and I will continue to use them in my marketing. I have even created my own business social network that is thriving with active members and I am adding more members everyday. If you have discovered social networks yet, why not start today with Internet Marketers. I think you will benefit, but remeber, do not lead with an ad about your business. Become a friend first, let people ask you about what you do and then gently let them know. It really works!
