Social networking has revolutionized the way you do marketing on the internet. You can promote your business without talking about it and generate leads without paying for them. All you need to do is connect to people with the same interests on Facebook or MySpace and keep communicating with them. Here is how I use Facebook marketing to increase my business.

The first thing is to get your profile right. There is no need to make it too professional. It can be simple and straightforward. You must keep in mind that you need to build relationships and not promote your products blatantly. People would like to understand more about you as a person and not about your business. Go to Facebook and create your profile today. I will share with you what works and how it works.

You will not go far without giving good informative content. If you are running a business, you need to give information that will solve people’s problems. When you share information, you can also ask people to make comments on it so that you get them involved in your ideas. Similarly, you can also interact with others by writing your opinions and views about their notes and profiles. If you intend to win, then always maintain a positive outlook in whatever you write.

To get an idea, you can check out my Facebook profile (Angela Kay Giles). I would surely like to know about you so place a request for me to be your friend. As you will notice, I have mentioned my family, my friends and my passion. Apart from the small mention at the end, there is nothing about my business. If I focus too much on it, then it will not work well.

There are two ways you can use Facebook marketing to build your list. The first is to write informative articles and post them in your notes page. I would write something like – 4 great methods to get 33 leads per day. I would also add a url to my squeeze page to collect email ids. I get many people through this route that become friends first and then leads. Another method I have used successfully is a friend adder. You might need to pay for this service but it saves a lot of time. I do not do more than 50 friends in a day since that might switch on the red light on Facebook. However, you can add more friends by creating more accounts.

It is all to do with innovation. Facebook marketing means using all the tools and applications of Facebook for your business, directly or indirectly.

If you are an online marketer like me, then list building must be your top priority. There is no questioning the importance of this activity. The more the leads you can garner, the better it is for your business. I always keep an eye out for the best and the most inexpensive means of increasing my list of prospects. I have found MySpace marketing to be of immense help. Here are a few techniques which you can put to your use.

• Your profile on MySpace: I believe that a good first impression is the best way to get prospects knocking on your door. Start your profile with a great headline. Write it in such a way as to attract the attention of your prospects. The whole concept of MySpace marketing is based on the principle that you are your biggest asset. Write your story on the profile page in an interesting way. You can start by saying that – This is the official page of Michael Joe, author of www.yoursite.com. I would also suggest you to put your youtube video in the profile.

• Your network of friends: Start building your network by defining who you want to meet. If you are quite clear about your target audience, MySpace marketing will help you to get connected with them. People would also like to look at you and hear you speak, so you might like to put a hyperlink to your video on youtube on this page too. I would recommend that you use an auto-responder. Using this, you can create an html form to capture the names, emails and phone numbers of all the visitors of your MySpace profile.

• Community: The MySpace community consists of various groups of people who come together to share specific interests. You should be able to find groups which are relevant for your business. Join all such groups and provide your website url on each of them. Invite as many people as you can from these groups to join your network of friends. I love this MySpace marketing method as this gets me leads for free. All I have to do is just invite them to visit my site.

Be careful of the kind of people who become your friends. You don’t want the negative impression of some people in your network to tarnish the good image you have created for yourself. Image is everything on the internet. Create a professional looking profile and ensure that it is relevant for your target audience. They must find something that is of interest to them or solves some of their problems. I wish you all the best for your MySpace marketing efforts.
