    How to Use Facebook and Myspace for Online Promotions and Links

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    We all hear these stories about how a business, or an independent professional have made it big by marketing with social networking websites. They took a Myspace account, and a couple of good friends, and turned it into an online empire. It almost seems like a magical process. Keep reading to learn how to get that "magic" working for you.

    Of course, we are sure that there are not some tiny gods of the Internet who have chosen a select few who can use social networking tools to make their products successful. That means that they have some kind of knowledge that we do not. A strategy that we do not know.

    That means that we can learn those tips and tricks. With some study of success stories and the advice of experts that success can be replicated. Now, onto the tips.

    Keep Your Personal and Professional Sites Separate

    Unless you are your product, which means that you are in a profession like law, programming or writing, then you need to keep these sites separate. Sure, your cousin may be interested in the cute photos of your kids at the beach. Do you really want all of your customers to see that? The odds are no. This brings us to the second tip.

    If you use a personal site, you still need to keep it professional.

    Letís say that you are a writer who wants to use Facebook to market yourself. In that case, you should not be using it for personal uses. You need to keep it only business, because if you donít, you will seem unprofessional.

    This can be a hard thing to accept, because once your friends and family find you online, they will want to chat with you. Can most of them keep things private? Sure, but there will be a few people who canít seem to stop talking about your frat days. Or there will be someone who has endless post after post of inane personal minutia.

    Remember that this will show up on your feed on sites like Facebook. This means that even if Party Steve happens to be your best friend, if his updates are TMI or generally unprofessional, then maybe you should stick to emailing him. Remember, your clients will judge you by the company you keep. It is not entirely fair, but it is true.
