**Note it goes without saying that the first 3 Social networking sites you MUST belong to are Facebook (please like my Facebook page – the link is on the right! I REALLY need some fans!), Twitter, and Linkedin** So today I started the laborious process of setting up accounts with some of the other social networking sites. I am doing this for two reasons. First, I am adding links to my website in the profile section of every site (if possible). This will generate backlinks and hopefully increase my Google page rank. I am also doing this so I can begin some article marketing with affiliate links. In order to get my articles noticed, I need to be able to promote them through social networking sites. This is a topic for another entry, however for now, I will show you which sites I joined.

(I arrived in Estonia for a weekend trip on December 7th.  It was snowing and the sky was grey.  These buildings looked oddly futuristic and out of place)

After some research about which sites are best, I decided to start with the following list. There are many many more, however not all seemed particularly relevant to anything I might actually write. I actually came across a site called Only Wire (http://onlywire.com/) which makes it easy to submit articles or blog entries to multiple social network sites all at once. I signed up for the free account however it appears to be rather limited in the number of submissions you can send. If you belong to 30+ social networking sites, the 300 free submissions they offer per month will be used up VERY quickly. I also was required to “like” their page in order to activate the free account. For the time being while I’m playing around with a lot of new ideas, I don’t plan on paying for their product until I test it out a bit so the free service will do for now.

If you happen to be a member of any of these sites, please add me!  Also, let me know what you think about their service.  Today has been quite eye-opening for me in terms of seeing Facebook is far from the only option out there.

I also signed up for http://www.clickbank.com which is a site where you can find Affiliate products to offer.

To get all this configured took me almost 8 hours – so be prepared.  The benefits however could prove quite great.  I will detail more what I plan to do in upcoming blogs.  Drop me a comment or email if you have any thoughts!  Thanks for reading, Nick
