Social Networking Websites- Stop building the site owners list, you'll never have residual income by doing that.

This is the finale of what started out as one single post about social networking websites. But I had to keep going because I just felt like I had to get this out of my mind and I wanted you, my loyal readers to read this. It's been just about two weeks of steady working on this. I have to say I believe this is a worth while subject to be writing about.

I believe that it will leave you with some ah ha moments, and I want you to just really think about everything that I have said. Now if this is your first time here, then you should definitely read Parts 1,2, and 3 before reading the finale. Just click here now.

I firmly believe that when you join social networking websites that your focus should be on, getting to know someone first. The only way to do that is, by checking out their profiles and finding some things that you have in common. As I said in my previous posts, these new site owners have made it all about business. They want people to refer others to join their site and pay them a commission. Most people do that and they think they are going to make BIG MONEY doing that. Little do they know, they're just spinning their wheels.

The thing that gets me about all of this is, they are trying to turn social networking into a business. It's not a business. Who will win? Only the site owners because they have built a list and you don't have a list, and you probably didn't get paid anything either. That's why I am speaking out about this because it is very important to get the word out about this. Everyone should speak out and tell the site owners to stop doing this, they make you believe that referring others will help you. That's a BIG FAT LIE. The only reason they want you to refer anyone is to add them to their list.

Look at it this way, if you refer 50 of your friends. Just say one-third decide to upgrade, okay that's about 17 people and if you're a free member and the site owner says they will pay you 10% per referrer. YOU just made a $1.70. That's not much, when you do the math. But look what has happened for the site owners. All of your 50 friends you just referred goes to their mailing list and they get to email and pitch them on what ever offer they are promoting. YOU see what I'm getting at now, where's your list? You are doing all the work promoting their site and you are not being compensated fairly at all. There list is growing and well, yours is not.

Plus you have to wait to get paid if you ever do. That's not the way social networking is supposed to be. The name "Social Networking" is self explanatory, and it's quite plain and very simple. I have a video that I want to share with you by my friend, Perry Belcher. He gives a great illustration of social networking. Please take a moment and look at it now.

Wasn't that a great video? I know you are having an ah ha moment, then you need to tweet this on Twitter and like this on Facebook and share this post with everyone YOU KNOW and stop this type of behavior. It's all wrong and it's not WIN-WIN for all parties involved. This is just happening to much and I can't take it anymore. Are you in with me?

I need everyone to support me, and together we can STOP site owners from doing this to social networking. Let's keep it real and make it about getting to know, like and trust someone first. Thank you for taking the time to read what I consider to be very important. This should not be taken lightly, let's do something about it now before it's too late.


May God bless you and let's keep social networking websites real. No time like the present. DO IT TODAY AND DO IT NOW!

Social Networking Websites - It's all about relationships, and that's the bottom line!

If you have been keeping up with my previous post, then this post will put you on the right track to having success with social networking. It's really very easy, and all you have to do is be YOU. Develop your relationships, and take your time doing it.

I will stop right here and say this, if you haven't read my previous post. I recommend you do so now.

Now back to using the social networking websites, you can have a personal relationship, or it could be a business relationship. If your main focus is having a business relationship, then you should work on developing it correctly. But here's the point that I want to make clear to you, having a business relationship only can have a downside. If your relationships is business only, then you have to realize that at some point you may eventually be competing against one another.

Don't get me wrong, you do need to have these business contacts, but you still need to have some kind of a personal relationship with them. So that you will know more about them personally, the benefits of getting to know someone personally and on a business level can be very beneficial, and rewarding. With social networking, you can have a 1,000 business contacts, but can you talk with all of them at one time. Of course not, you would still have to make contact with these people and interact with them and learn more about their business. So you see there still has to be interaction, because it still has to be developed first. It is a MUST that you develop your personal and business contacts.

Because you want ALL of your contacts to have the best possible impression of you. So that's why it's worth the effort to use social networking sites correctly, and it's so very important to learn this skill. You will be rewarded with, not only a successful business but relationships that will last forever (personal and business).

But the thing I want to stress here is this, when I see social networking websites place the focus on making money and paying people for referring others, and then you see people everywhere promoting for them. Some people will even tell you that this is the easiest home business, it just blows my mind of how uneducated people really are about this. They are not even thinking about this, they just sign up and start telling others about it. They have no interest in developing a relationship, only to get them in so they can make a few dollars.

In reality it takes quite a bit of people to make a decent check, and they don't even know if they are going to get paid. How's that for an eye-opener? Something to think about? YOU bet it is! Yet most people don't think about this, I have seen this and all I could think is, they are just wasting their time. They probably won't get paid, and they are building their list for them, and all these site owners do is send promotional emails to people that join.

They make all the money and you end up waiting to be paid, and probably never will get any money from them. So many people move on to something else to promote, or they get frustrated and quit. It's really ashamed of what's happening to social networking, and I really don't know if it will stop, because there's a lot of people that are looking to make money, and that's how they get people to join.
