Why Social Networks Are the Keys to Good Networking
by Ethan McKenzie
Social networking is a great way to directly communicate with your readers. Do consider that automatically generated email messages and newsletters that were meant for everybody and their brothers will not have the same effect as personalized messages do. Automatic newsletters are often discarded, unread, people do not even have the patience to open them. You need a more personal, more effective way.
It takes little time and effort to reach people through social network sites. Such websites are very popular these days. Half of American adults (47 per cent of them) use some social network sites, and this number will rapidly grow in the future. Social media is not restricted to young people any longer. The older generation has already recognized the potentials of social networking, and many people over 50 years do use these sites.

Through these sites, you can target those persons who are already interested specifically in the kind of product or service you offer. You may seek for clubs, groups, and fans of your niche. If you write horror stories, make sure that you register on a social network site and join some groups of horror book fans. Probably some groups for horror movie fans will also do, but your first target is, of course, the typical horror novel fan. Be specific. Once you have joined these groups, you comment on posts written by others, you share your thoughts on your own profile, and soon you are going to have numerous online friends who love the kind of books you write.
