business networking

Posted on: December 10, 2008

I blogged previously about social networking sites, but have you thought about business networking? Why not- if you have published a book through a small press, Print on Demand or an e-book, you have a product, something to sell, so you are now a small business.

  You will find there a whole range of people from top executives to business newcomers. I’ve picked people out, emailed them and received free marketing advice. It also provides another place to show off your book- and if it makes only one sale it is a good return for something which costs little in time and nothing in cash.

 ALSO… some of these sites allow you to upload videos. I put some of my YouTube readings on mine, and received several hits. These are people curious about what I am doing, and that curiosity could equal sales.

Here is a useful blog to help you decide when faced with a choice of networks:

Hope this is of use,

Good Luck!

Thanks Udi,
LookupPage looks interesting- When I Google ‘Allan Mayer’ I get an american politician at the top of the page, so I’ll give it a try.
