Mar 1, 2008
Having a web 2.0 experience online has emerged as the best way to communicate with people the use the internet. Now we are starting to see a surge of online social communities making its way to the surface. There are many to choose from like MySpace, Linkedin, Friendster, Blackplanet, Migente, etc. If your trying to establish a personal and professional presence, I feel that Facebook is the social network to help you do this.

In this article I will discuss some helpful tips to build your network of friends and business associates. The first thing would be to comment on other peoples profiles. If you have business associates who use facebook or are a fan of an individual who has a profile setup on Facebook, comment on it. Let them know you were stopping by to say hello. Offer some good advice if you know them well. Ask them about their weekend. If you don't know the person your commenting on, just say hi and that you enjoyed reading about them in their profile.

If your going to launch a new service or start a new business, create and list it as an event. Have your friends and associates RSVP for the event. This is a good way to get feedback from your guests if they will attend and if they have requests for more information.

Sending virtual gifts to your friends or associates is one way to build a good relationship and trust. You can choose from hundreds of 3rd party applications like greeting cards, bouquet flowers, and more.

Stay in touch with your Facebook friends with some cool apps. There a lot of applications built just for Facebook like games, music, movie trivia, and more. A lot of the applications allow you to invite friends to play along or you can communicate through the application. This is good tactic to keep building your relationship with your friends and associates.

One of Facebooks benefits is being able to build a community. Creating a community allows you to stay virtually connected to members in that community. You can offer advice, tips, resources, offer feedback to individuals or write on walls. The possibilities are endless. This is a good way to establish your image and expertise in your target niche.

I think using Facebook as part of your online marketing strategy can only help you. Where else can you meet new people who may one day become a potential customer, client or a friend. Make sure not to procrastinate and use the tips I have just given you. Establish your presence on the worlds fastest growing social network on the web.
