What are Social Networking Sites?

What are Social Networking Sites?

If you are not familiar with them, then here is a brief explanation of what they are.

Social Network Sites: A Definition
Social Network Sites are innovative systems for meeting and working with people
who are involved in the same areas of business that you are involved in. This gives
you a very targeted audience to market your business to..

The Social Networking Sites that you will be using provide a safe, friendly
environment for Marketers, to come together in a Social setting to build
relationships, gain exposure, make friends, reach a targeted audience with your
businesses and products.

Popular social networking sites, including MySpace and Facebook, have changed the
human fabric of the Internet and have the potential to pay off big for investors.

MySpace, with 200 million visitors, has become the digital equivalent of hanging out
at the mall for today's teens, who load the site with photos, news about music
groups and detailed profiles of their likes and dislikes. It also became the next big
thing for marketers.

MySpace and Facebook, have opened the doors on newer and better Social
Networking sites that are business friendly.

The following Social Networking sites are geared for those who want to build their
business and they all offer great resources that will help you to contact and network

TIP: To make the Social Networking sites to work for your business, go to your
account, set up your profile page where you can tell a little about you and your
business. This is where you can tell all about your business or affiliate program.
Then you go into the browse or search section and add other members to your
contact list. This will enable you to contact 1000's of members using the social
networks system. The members you contact will visit your profile page with your info
and business presentation.

Also, after these members become your contact you can email them at any time and
leave comments on their profile page that will lead back to your profile page. Try not
to place ads directly in the comments section, this is frowned upon. Instead wish
them good luck in thier business or have a nice day and then ask them to visit your

Visit my profile page here to see how I set up one of my profiles and scroll down to
the bottom to see how the comment section works.

People when looking at other members profiles almost always go to the comment
sections to see what other members are saying. This is a great way to get extra
exposure and visits to your profile and business opportunities.

This is the best in online marketing, and one that should not be ignored by anyone
who wants to earn an income online.

How To Find 100,000 Products You Can Sell Online
If you've ever dreamed about being a super affiliate and wondered how people make
any money promoting products that pay them measly commissions, this is the
chapter for you

The real secret to affiliate commissions is promoting high end products. In this
chapter I'm going to show you where to find these products and how to promote

Google has recently launched a new service called Froogle which you can find at

This service allows you to find all sorts of products people are selling. I guess you
would call it the worlds largest online shopping directory.

This is how the Google people describe their new service
"Froogle is a new service from Google that makes it easy to find information about
products for sale online.

By focusing entirely on product search, Froogle applies the power of Google's search
technology to a very specific task: locating stores that sell the item you want to find
and pointing you directly to the place where you can make a purchase."

Basically it allows you to find any product for sale on the Internet.

So what's so good about this?

If you know anything about affiliate programs you know it's HARD to find good
products to sell that nobody else is selling and will allow you to do that.
The best part is it allows you to search for products by price range.

So if you wanted to find and promote products that sell for over $100,000 you can do

Ok, let's move onto the next step. Selling $100,000 + products on the Internet. How
do you do it? Do people actually buy products that sell for this price online?
Yes they do, big time.

The type of products in this price range could be jewelry, car's, holidays, real estate
and even boats.

The best way to sell these types of products would be to become the leader in the
field on the Internet. So when someone thinks about buying a luxury car or holiday,
your name will come up.

But how do you do that?
By becoming the expert in the field! You want to be first in the search engines, you
want to be in their face when they read articles about the subject at hand, you want
to be first when they go to message boards and ask questions. You want your name
and website to be there.

Selling large products like this isn't going to be like selling $25 ebooks online, you're
going to have to put in the hard work.

You should be aiming to create a site something like
That site is totally dedicated to Tractors and it pulls in a fortune. Why? Because when
someone says I want to buy a tractor online or want more information about a
certain type of tractor, that's the place that comes up every time they ask those

Information Product Idea
One of the hottest topics on the Internet right now is that of people learning how to
create digital products, like ebooks and software that they can sell online and make
either a full time or part time income with.

People are looking for ways to make money online, either because they have or fear
they might lost their jobs, or they are sick of working 9-5 and constantly hear about
people who are able to work from home.

This business idea is all about teaching people how to create digital products, easily
and quickly. Like most people who get into this sort of business, I would be staying
away from the "Internet marketing" crowd big time and I would try and target people
who are new to the Internet and the business in general.

Not only does this make you stand out in the crowd, it will also make things easier
when it comes to creating the business itself.

You're probably thinking how can I create a business about creating digital products
if I've never done anything like that before, and that is a good question, but I have a
very good answer.

Some of the best products I've ever brought on the Internet were not created by the
owner of the business, they either got someone to create the product for them or
they brought in experts and interviewed them and turned their knowledge into a

The best way to get started in this business is to hire an expert in the field of product
development and use their knowledge to create your own products.

For instance, for $19.95, you could sell an ebook on getting started in product
development, for $47 you could see a download video showing steps on how to
create your own digital products, for $97 you could sell a cd set with a
comprehensive guide to creating and selling your own digital products, for $297 you
could sell a complete set of dvd's with 1 or 2 hours of consultation on product
development and for over $500 you could even do a seminar.

This is another simple business idea. Create an ebook around the topic of
making money with your love of Golf for example or manuthing you are passionate about.

Show people how to make money with their passion for Golf and they will pay you
whatever you want.

You could show them how to become a Caddy,

You could show them how to become a Golf sports writer

You could show them how to get a job at a Golf course

You could show them how to become a professional Golfer.

The list goes on and on.

Selling Businesses On Ebay Guide
There are literally tens of millions of people with an EBay account that shop
periodically for everything from clothing to information. So why not create a business
around EBay!

You already have millions of customers at your disposal, so why not make EBay work
even harder for you?

The problem with selling physical products on EBay is that it's a hard business to sell
onto someone else. Inventory, shipping is a pain in the butt, so create a business
that is virtual and a product that can be downloaded instantly.

Of course, I'm talking about an ebook here, but you can create just about anything.
Most people don't associate EBay with digital products, but people are willing to buy
them if you know where to look.

In Conclusion
Before you get on with starting your internet business, I just want to say that there
are thousands of ways to make money on the internet! This guide only covers the
most basic and easy ways to start an online business, and once you get more into
the online business world you will discover hundreds of other awesome business

And now, it is time for you to start your online business. Because the sooner you
start, the sooner you can quit that job and start living the life you have always

Let me be blunt with you:
Is it possible to make lots of money on the internet? Yes, much more possible than
making it in the “real” world.

But unless you get started, you will not make a cent! So the sooner you get started, the better!
