    • One thing I noticed with regard to social networking and business is that jumping in and promoting rarely works unless it’s specifically a site for business promoting. I was invited to join one of these groups and I did. I had not even started logging on regularly yet when I was receiving daily sales related messages from these women. One woman changed the way she sent the messages so creating filters has been arduous. I tried to delete my account. I heard that one of their members was a hacker. It was really awful. And if the purpose of a site is strictly to promote business then the members are all obligated to buy from one another often. As soon as income is made it just goes right out to purchase another member’s products.

      I’ve been a member here for over a year. I love this site. I do business with several of the members here but it’s not the only thing I talk about in my posts. I have seen people come in and immediately started “selling.” That never produces very positive results. It’s about relationship building. The beauty of this place is that there are women who truly care about one another.

      Members have driven miles to be with other member who are in the hospital. Members who travel organize meet ups for lunch or dinner. I went to a conference with one of our members in Las Vegas the first time we met.

      I encourage you to participate here and really get to know us. Honestly, this is a very nice place to be. I have built a lot of trust in this site and its members.

      Best to you
      Cynthia

    • I think that the ning sites are a good place to explore. I’m not exactly sure but you may be able to google ning sites and put in a topic to see what groups are available.  

      You could use those sites for selling and marketing but still welcome to be here for what we have to offer members.

    • Here’s a link for ning directory of sites. [Link Removed]

      Best of luck.

      You never mentioned what type of business you are in. Let us know. We have a lot of business people here who are not premium members and still share their line of work with us through their blogs and posts.


      Chocolatier, Your links have been removed, please consider upgrading to premium membership.

    • Thanks for the advice I will check that out.I have created my own designs for dog apparel. I have started with listing my boots and I am still working on my coats. I wrote this in my profile when I signed up but nothing seemed to save. I am a very good seamstress but a terrible writer.
      oh well I will be looking into the ning thing.

    • Oh, there are lots of animal lovers on this site! I’m willing to bet there will be a lot of interest in your products. I know it’s frustrating about the beginning stages of being on the site and not signing up to be a premium member but hang in there. You won’t be able to post a link to a site but it’s still worth sharing your business with us. There are a few business related groups on here that are open to all members. When you are ready to explore those, message me and I’ll find the link for them.
