How To Use Social Business Networks Effectively

There are quite a few Social Business Networks online, like APSense for instance, that give business owners and marketers a way to grow their network as well as promote. These social media platforms offer you opportunities to brand your business online which is one of the most important strategies to get your company recognized.

They are often free of charge to join and offer advertising resources as well as a way to connect with like minded professionals. You can find out about different services from members and also find potential customers.

One of the best ways to get started in any social media site is to start building relationships. Be the "go to" person by answering questions, writing articles and reviewing services. Also create a brand page or blog that becomes a reference for anyone that sees your profile. Then other members will start connecting with you, at this point you can also promote your products and services.

Because social media posts and unique content such as articles index quickly on search engines this is a great way to quickly get backlinks to your websites and blogs.

Free MLM And Business Opportunity Leads With Triple Your List

This is one of the few programs where I've actually seen members be able to obtain real leads for their MLM and business opportunities.

When you sign up at Triple Your List, you will receive double opt-in leads with name, email and IP address. These are not safelist members, they have joined this list and agreed to receive contact from Triple Your List members.

You'll want to agree to Auto-Recycle which mean you're added to the rotator of members to receive new leads.You can get them as often as every few days if you wish. I also suggest signing up with a Gmail account and use the Contacts Feature to add them to a list that you can mail to. Make sure to remind them that their emails were obtained through Triple Your List so they know that your messages are not spam.

Online Strategies For Offline Businesses - Part 2 Of 3

Another strategy is to have a contest where you give away a freebie. Collect business cards as entries. The winner will be the owner of the business card you randomly choose.

All the rest of the business cards are now part of your mailing list and they've given you permission to contact them. Using your autoresponder add the email addresses into your list.

Send an email blast to your list thanking them for participating and announce the contest winner. Also mention some type of special offer to get the remaining list members interested in your business.

This is an easy and fast way to build your list, have fun!

Please feel free to leave comments about this list building method or any questions.

Online Strategies For Offline Businesses - Part 1 Of 3

Lots of brick and mortar businesses have been implementing online advertising strategies to get exposure for their promotions. Often it can be a challenge to narrow their target market to their local area. After all not every company that has a website has a global reach. Or they may be service businesses that are looking for clients within a certain mile radius of their storefront.

These are a few online strategies that businesses can use to get the word out to their local customer base.

The first is getting a listing on Google Places For Business. Prospects will be able to find your business on Google Search, Google Maps, Google+ as well as mobile. Your listing can include your location and contact information including hours of operation as well as have clients post reviews. Google states that 97% of shoppers are now searching for local businesses online, so it's definitely worthwhile to get a free listing.

You can get started with Google Places For Business by clicking here.
