Social media now plays an important role in any business. It's used to expand your branding of your company and offers unique ways to interact with your customers. Offering just small incentives and rewards or even just a thank you to your customers can go a long way via social media. However just like any advertising source there is a right way to do it and a wrong way. What I have notice about doing business on Facebook is that people really get turned off when you try to promote a biz opp to them, and well it just makes sense. Facebook is used for personal use, to interactive with family and friends not to be slammed with ads about biz opps. This is why I created my very own social network called IMLoop.com it's a free to join social network that's geared towards internet marketing and small business.
There are other social networks out there as well which are more geared to doing business online and here are a few of them...
