Social media – More than just Facebook and Twitter


It’s no secret that Twitter and Facebook  have big names. Mothers and teens can not do enough to get it and entrepreneurs are capitalizing on this new and creative way to market. Oh yeah, Twitter and Facebook can show promise and help out a company connect with prospects and customers on a  more intimate level. These 2 sites are however not the only social networking sites around. Social media is about building relationships and commitment. In this article, I will share a few other common popular social media sites you can use today.

1. Create your own social site A social networking site ning.com is a site where you can build your own social network, you can have a forum, upload videos, invite members. And the best thing about Ning.com, is that it is absolutely free and it is easy to get started.

2. HubPages.com-this is a site where you write an article on any topic you want. And you can create a loyal following, others can comment on your article and look forward to the next time that you publish. But what is great about Hub pages is that it gives you search engine juice. Hub pages is a popular Web site,with already high rankings with the search engines. This means if you write an article here, not only do you get a quality back link to your site, but your articleis displayed within seconds with a real chance for the “highly coveted” first page of Google. Other sites like this are eHow.com and helium.com AssociatedContent.com. And you can actually get a share of advertising revenue.

3. Participation in forums is one of the most overlooked Internet marketing strategies today. After all, people are going to forums and online discussion forums are looking for solutions to your problems. You can search any subject from video games to weight loss and there is a forum for it. Forums are a great way to see the challenges and problems people are facing. There is much more social media than just posting what you had for lunch. Think of social networking as a way to build relationships.  Implement a social media strategy today and watch your profits rise!
