Social Networking Websites - Where is the Focus?
What do I mean by that? Most of these social networking websites are Web 2.0 marketing. All that means is when you see a share button on it, that is so you can bookmark it on other sites so they can get backlinks so others will visit.
Don't get me wrong, the site owners want you to interact and meet people, but on the other hand they want you to tell others so they can join the site and then guess what happens next. They're on the site owners list and they get to send emails to everyone who joins.
These are people you have referred to them, and then they get to promote to them to, either to upgrade or some offer they are currently marketing. Hmmm! Isn't that what you want to happen. Did a light bulb just go off. Don't get mad, it's just how works, but the thing that sticks in my craw is this.
It's the social networking groups, a few of these sites want to tell you what you can talk about in your group. Some even have the audacity to remove your post if they feel like you are promoting your business. Well what the heck are they doing when they're mailing out to people that you have referred to them.
So how does internet social networking works, YOU pay a monthly fee to come to a location everyday and the whole purpose is to be able to come their and introduce yourself, start up a conversation and if you meet a lot of people, that's interested in discussing it further then you present them with your business card (a link to your website).
Here's another way I can put it, Say you got about 4 or 5 people that you're talking with, and say the owner happens to pass and sees that you are passing out your business card, and he says that's not allowed and breaks up your discussion. Is that fair? What did he just do here? He stopped you from doing what you are paying him a monthly fee to do. Social networking is like a great big meeting hall, and if the owners are going to be so controlling as to tell you what you can talk about, then why bother paying them.
That's what you're paying them to do. That's why I never pay to do internet social networking because you're not building your list, only the site owners. I feel like I will be writing about this some more. This has really gotten my juices flowing and it's something that should be addressed. Just something that you need to think about.
You really should give this some serious thought, and if you would like to learn how to think, not what to think. I have a video that I would like to share with you, this will help you to get rid of all the negativity that gets in your mind. If I have piqued your curiosity then I advise you to look at the video and learn
