Facebook has significant implications for business owners, marketers, and entrepreneurs. This highly successful online social networking platform currently boasts 200 million active members and is predicted to be at 500,000 million members by 2011 or sooner. Over half of all active members log in daily for an average session time of 20 minutes – that’s a huge captive audience! Plus the demographics are a more mature and wealthier audience.
Twitter is the fastest growing social network: traffic has grown over 600% in the past 12 months. An estimated 5-10 thousand new accounts are opened per day. And yet, even with its 140-character simplicity, Twitter can be infinitely more complex than Facebook to understand how to use effectively. There’s a right way and a wrong way and you need to know the difference.
Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites are extremely powerful marketing mediums through which to exponentially grow your business, in particularly through quality joint ventures.
During this information-rich session, Mari will share proven strategies for generating significant online profits using social media, including:
**The most effective ways to establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry.
**Simple strategies to powerfully leverage your visibility and brand.
**How to drive a flood of traffic to your website and blog.
**Proven ways to identify and attract your top paying clients.
**How to use Facebook in just five minutes a day and still yield huge, measurable results.
