    facebook seems to allow pages for your business. so i am creating that and hope to markte it to the Realtors of the community for efficient targeted marketing
    I'm not ding facebook for those reasons. For me it is just to get in touch with old friends.

    Well I don't know what the product or service you're offering might be. I have a facebook page for close family/friends/co-coworkers only. Somehow I still get several 'friend' requests each week by other Realtors or real estate oriented interests. These all go straight to my wastebasket.

    My business email is full of spam from real estate oriented interests. Lenders. Lead generation web sites. Again... all these go straight into the trash.

    Facebook has been good for me getting in touch with the diaspora of old friends. Yes I made a couple of contacts but the point was to get in touch with old friends. Like today at my uncle's ranch there were some old friends I hadn't seen in years and I'm talking 20 or so years. What comes of it who knows there is nothing expected except continued friendships.

    I get people hacking my website all the time. I don't even think it is worth it any more.

    Never used any of them, but I have a, somewhat, working knowledge of what they are about, since most of my clients have them. I can't think of a good reason to start with any of these sites.

    Re: Social Networking sites

    I have used them all for various marketing tactics. Here are my thoughts on the three major ones.

    Facebook
    Great for getting a network of fans in the 20-50 year old range in a conversation led atmosphere. This is a great site to give more detailed information about your business to a broader audience. If used properly it can produce good leads via friend associations. If you do any type of announcements, promotions, surveys, or market research, this is the group to target. Creating a fan page or business profile is quick and easy. Create one just to have one for searching purposes, even if you don't do much with it. You could come back to it a month or so later and see you have a number of new fans and potential leads. You could create a new 'note' for each of your listings. This would broadcast it around your network.

    Twitter
    This is a great tool if your goal is to be seen as an authority on a specific topic. Want to make comments about latest news, trends or fads in your industry? This is the place to do it. Updates are quick and short so you don't have to worry about blogging a 1000 character article. Just be sure to update semi-frequently (twice a day or so). If you update too much you could come off as spam or turn into white noise but if you update to little people may forget who you are. Most of your leads will come from referrals of followers, not followers themselves. So keep that in mind when posting. You want your followers to be so impressed with you that they will share your insights and twitter feed or contact info with others.

    Myspace
    Only focus on Myspace if your target audience is under 20 or if your starting a music group.

    Linkedin
    I highly recommend Linkedin for professional building. This is an amazing networking site to meet other professionals in your area and to become socially involved with industry authority groups.

    How funny, my aunt- who is a real estate agent, was just talking yesterday about how her Facebook is helping attract young couples looking to buy houses and how she uses it for her business.

    Anywayz, I use Myspace and I love it. I can connect with all my family that live far away and be able to keep in touch better, because I am horrible about sending letters. However they're all trying now to push me to switch to Facebook for some reason. Maybe one of these days I'll go and find out why Facebook is -supposedly- better.

    Re: Social Networking sites

    My father is an executive at Lennox Int. and was telling me recently that the company is "exploring Twitter in a larger attempt to expand their networking capabilities" or something like that.

    Its apparently a big business tool now. I had no idea, I mean I can't see me using Twitter since the site's major feature is incorporated into my Facebook account anyway.

    It's a great tool for companies to use with updating clients. Many tech companies that make constant updates to services or systems use Twitter live feed updates with the fact that most BlackBerries can connect directly with TinyTwitter or TwitterBerry and that you can directly connect to Twitter through Business portals.

    You can also tweet a call out and link to pages on your website such as discussions, reviews, products/services, etc.. Give a little teaser and a link to get the click.
