What is Networking and a Social Network?
There are a number of Business Networking solutions which are useful for the individual, and there are some which are better suited for companies. I have included as many types as possible and welcome additional ideas. Social Networking is the preferred method by many advertising and marketing companies, because with the right message, it can be seen by thousands or millions of potential customers, and is very cost effective. Like everything, it takes time, but the benefits can be substantial for your business. If you use some, or most of these networking sites, then you are well on your way to creating an Integrated Internet Infrastructure. This is ideal for small business networking. Using business to business networking can prove very profitable if done correctly.
It is very important for every company seeking to build a brand on the Internet and increase market share. How to keep the information up to date on these resources is the problem. You know when you visit a website, and it has not been updated, the copyright still shows 2001, and there are broken links, you just leave. Don't let that happen to your website. Often it only takes an hour a week, to keep visitors interested and returning. Need some help?, just use the form and send as much information as possible. Minimum rate is 1 hour, payable by PayPal. I use these resources and many others to build the network that fully supports your website. This is where knowledge, experience and time make a difference. Do you have a website marketing strategy? Having your own Social Network is important. All of the following suggestions are great for link building, if you have time. Social Networking for business is now consider one of the most important functions any person responsible for the business website can do. Where to start. maybe the first step is to review your website and order a Web Audit
Business to Business Networking.
Setting-up and promoting your business online using these and many other business resources is time consuming, but is very important if your business is to be seen. I try to use the same logo and message, but naturally your style, tag line, logo would be the one promoted. Everybody is a brand, but companies need to have a special brand identity which is constant across all media. There are dedicated Brand Marketing companies and you should consult one early in your online marketing plans.
Unfortunately the Business Networking list has been removed
I took a great deal of pleasure in compiling a great list of resources for business networking, but the list has been used for spamming and posting a range of comments, all promoting their sites at my expense. If you would like the list please email me.
