    I wrote this up to help newbies and because im sick of getting spammed by people who dont know how to network on social networking sites...

    Hey there everyone. Hope your new years was great!

    There are a lot of people who fail at networking, and network marketing. Now, before i explain to you all how to network, please forget everything you think networking is (unless you are already as successful with it). This guide is targetted towards new comers to the IM scene and networking.

    Let's Begin.

    What is networking? Well according to dictionary.com:

    a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest: Working mothers in the community use networking to help themselves manage successfully.



    Now read that definition over and over again until you fully comprehend it.

    Now, take a step back from what you are currently doing online. Look at how the majority of people are 'networking'. Does it fit with the description? Not at all. It fits with the word 'spamming' more accurately. Why do people tend to spam instead of network? Well they are generally in a hurry to make money and are not patient at all. Patience here my friend is a great virtue.

    Now if you have tried networking like the majority of people then you will have noticed that your success is limited, very limited.

    In a nutshell, newbie networkers try to take before giving. Whereas, successful networkers give before taking. Newbie networkers 'inform' or 'spam' people on this AMAZING OPPORTUNITY!!!!

    If you can just change that one thing (give before take) you will notice your network of friends and contacts will increase heaps. Be nice to people. Everyone likes getting useful info etc for free =)

    Also, don't push anything on your network whilst trying to build it. Build your network BEFORE you market. You could have a few ads on your blog for biz opps or cpa networks you use, but dont try and get people to join, there's no rush.

    Try and avoid affiliate links whilst beginning your networking campaign (remember, networking before marketing).

    If you think what i am saying is complete crap, thats fine, continue spamming :p
    If you are nice to people without asking for anything in return you will stand out like a sore thumb. You will have a Point of Difference (a key term in business). You will already be lightyears ahead of 90+% of internet marketer/network marketers.

    If you are wondering "How can I help someone? I don't have anything to offer/I don't know what to offer them" just ask, ask them if theres something you can do for them. Dont do EVERYTHING for them, if they are a complete noob then you will just be wasting your time signing up for their shit biz opps etc. Just say no if you arent interested in what they have, instead, inform them about this post as im sure it will help them realise why they are in such a struggle to get quality leads.

    Dont give him/her a fish, teach them to fish. The latter is clearly more valuable.

    Also, dont just try and network with the big dogs, network with anyone and everyone as even the noobiest noob still has potential, he may end up being the next Rich Jerk for all we know...

    to start make money, you need to know what to give to the Internet :) to the people who are using the Internet, find the niche where not so much of competition and so on and so forth, we could talk hours and hours about it.

    Absolutely right the network is all about to merge everyone on the single point on one platform but through network we can take many positive steps in seek of people or organization.

    but what ever you had describe about social networking was awesome.
