Social networking online is the current wave. Believe it will be a wave in the future, too.
Peggy McColl talks about the power of these online networks in her book, "Viral Explosions." A message can spread like wild fire through these online systems. It had worked wonders in the area of book marketing.
As you probably already know, I'm the author of Discover Hidden Secret Wisdom. It is a self-improvement book on the importance of reading more books. I used tons of social networks to promote the book.
I have all of the major accounts: blogspot, facebook, myspace, LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, Photobucket, Tumblr, my own web-site, DannyPettry.com, an email list that people can subscribe to. Of course all of my networks are geared towards recreational therapists and people seeking to improve their life.

Please note that 95% of the profits made from my book were from online sales. Five percent came from direct mail marketing, which was expensive. It required print costs, postage, and more time. Online social networks are easier. People who enjoy your topic can re-post it for FREE. Amazing.
If you want to learn how to use social networks online to promote your business then you might want to take a training course.
