TO START WITH DO YOUR HOMEWORK
This is vital if you are going to get some good results. Some social networking sites are quite lenient when it comes to members using them for business purposes. Others are completely against it.
You need to know exactly where you stand with each one before you get started because if you take a laid back approach with a site that doesn’t like it, you won’t get anywhere.
This part is easy though. All you need to do is read the terms and conditions of each site that you are interested in, to see how promotional you are allowed to be. The more you know up front, the better you will be able to integrate yourself into each website.
You should also take a look round and see what other people have done. But be careful with this approach because you may well come across individuals who have broken the rules and haven’t been discovered yet. And you certainly don’t want to join them, do you?
