    Hello Everybody,

    I am trying to start using social medias to make MONEY.


    I am brazilian, so .. here the biggest social media is: ORKUT.

    Almost every one has an orkut account.


    I try to search in the forum about: HOW TO CREATE A BIG COMMUNITY AND HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH IT.

    We already have an website (e-commerce): :: Companhia da Nutrição - Suplementos Alimentares, notebooks, ipod, mp3, mp4, livros, perfumes, informática ::

    We sell a lot of things.


    If I am not wrong... Orkut do not allow the use of it to make a Company sales.


    For this I don't know how effective can be this idea to create an Orkut community if we can not make more sales.


    Does anybody has experience with Orkut?

    Is there a good strategy to get more people inside your community?


    I thought to raffle something like: t-shirts, mp3 and things like that between members who bring more people to that community.



    Maybe this is not effective.



    Remember: why Orkut? Because in Brazil it is the biggest social media network.




    Tks!

    there is two ways to go with it

    blackhat or whitehat in your case i would suggest the second

    wich is create a real community and start delivering value to your members without spamming them with advertising until they like you at this point you can sell whtever you want

    so build credibelity thro genuine content and sales will follow

    its a long term strategy tho it will take energy and time

    When you say about genuine content...

    I think in one thing.

    I can create a new article in our website and put the first part of it in Orkut community and write something like: " read all article here: LINK"


    Another thing I thought is to give CUPOMS to get discount in one product.

    People like to pay less.

    So, we will have two fronts: GOOD CONTENT and DISCOUNTS.


    But.. how to make the community grow?
    What can I create to make it bigger?

    I think I can try to make my friends participate in it. So.. only with this I can have about 300 people.
    After this I need to create a good strategy to make it grow.



    Tks for your answer.


    Anyone else?

    In orkut somany kids have ownership of BIG communities, You can buy one very cheaply but i heard orkut team last week updated, that community owner can't change the community's name now. So, research about it first if your going to buy any community.

    1- Join other communities on Orkut.
    2- Be active in those communities.
    3- When people know you, tell them about your community.
    4- Offer them freebies (coupons etc)
    5- Sell it to them.

    P.S- I don't have any experience marketing to people on Orkut. Just my opinion :)

    Rightly said. You have to be very active. And once you have your reputation you can throw in the advertising bomb. :p
