Online Social Networking – How Building a Network of Social Contacts Can Build You a Fortune

Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other social networking sites have taken off in just the last few years reflecting a need and demand in society to connect and build relationships with people beyond their circle of friends in day-to-day living. The internet has opened up an entire new world of networking that could hardly have been imagined a decade ago. A side benefit to this explosion is the possibility of creating a social network of people who come together with a shared interest. Not only can you create a network of new friends and associates around the world, you can now add a business dimension to this that is truly mind boggling. By helping others to realize their dreams of financial empowerment you can earn a fortune!

Regardless of your age, background or experience online social network marketing is the cutting edge industry that very few people know about. Most small businesses-and many larger ones still rely on traditional forms of business to move their products and services. These methods do work but do not provide the growth and expansion that the added dimension of technology can bring.

Some companies allow individuals to tie into their systems of distribution to move products that use methods similar to franchising. Hybrid marketing is one such system. It combines traditional retail marketing, social networking and online marketing all rolled into one. An individual, without the risk and investment of buying a franchise can literally start a business that can spread around the world. This would not be possible if not for the advent of online social networking sites.

Take advantage of modern technology. Instead of just using Twitter, Facebook and Myspace to communicate with more people and become part of a larger community of online social networkers–change your ideas about how to make money and become an online marketing entrepreneur. As a television producer and author I grew tired of all the inside politics of the entertainment industry and decided to begin funding my own projects. The power of the internet and such social networking sites like YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter have literally changed the way I make money. They can change the way you navigate in this world of commerce too.
