Social networking sites like MySpace, FaceBook, and even Twitter, can be great places to promote your website or blog.

Start by creating a group or groups, centered around your niche market and begin networking with other users who have the same  interest in your niche topic.

FaceBook allows you to create a business or “fan” page that can be used to share and post information to promote your business website.

You can use your fan page to share information such as your hours of operation, location, etc.    It can function as a marketing tool that can generate leads for and promote your business.

Twitter’s founders don’t actually classify their web site as a social networking site, but anyone using Twitter can tell you in a hurry that it definitely falls into that category.

Twitter is actually more like a micro blog; and although many people consider Twitter and Tweeting to be a total waste of time, if you learn how to use it properly, it can be a valuable sales asset and traffic generating business tool.

Just like anything else, social networking sites can be great promotion tools.   But to get the best results, you need to learn how to use them effectively.

It will require a bit of testing and experimentation on your part to determine what works best for you. But when you DO get the right formula; you’ll be glad you “wasted your time” playing around with social networking sites.

We realize that social networking sites aren’t for everyone and that they’re not absolutely necessary to run a successful website or blog, but using them to promote your web sites can definitely make your life run a lot smoother.
