No matter what you sell on the Internet today – whether it is eBooks, products you have to mail out, or services that you provide yourself – you need to find customers.

That much is certain, but the more creative you are at finding those customers (especially when those methods don’t involve spending any money) the more successful you are likely to be.

And that’s why it is in your best interests to become familiar with social networking sites. Not to tell people all about what you do in your spare time, or to share the intimate details of your life with, but to use as a method to gain more business.

Yes, there are thousands of customers to be found on these sites. Despite the fact that they are intended for social purposes, they have been hijacked by business users – very successfully. You just need to know how to do it.

There is no doubt that the people who are doing it already are reaping the rewards. There are such a high proportion of internet users who are members of at least one social networking site that you are ignoring a huge number of potential customers if you don’t at least try it. Facebook alone has over 2 billion monthly users as of the June 2017, so you can see just how big an opportunity this is.

I can guarantee that once you HAVE tried marketing to your audience in this way, you won’t want to stop.
