Find Your Purpose - Part 8 – Making Social Networking Pay

Making Social Networking Pay

One of the best ways you can promote your passion over Social Media is by starting an online community focusing on your area of interest. Online communities or groups work in the same way that e.g. business clubs work off net. People who have similar interests to you become part of such groups and discuss their topics of interest. 

Members of your group may post:

  • Their experiences 
  • Ideas and tips they have on the topic of the group 
  • Their approach to doing things related to the topic
  • Asking others for guidance in the topic area
  • Buying and selling related merchandise or services
  • Asking opinions of others before buying services or products
  • General discussion about the topic

So, it can be seen that an online community or group is a good place to be in whether you want to spark a discussion about the subject or get some useful help and guidance about it. Its true to say most people who use the internet these days are members of one or more online groups.

The sites listed below are some of the most interesting and popular social networking websites present on the Internet. They have a large number of members with a huge range of different interests which means a greater opportunity to have people that will be interested in the topic you want to promote. Also, because there are such a large number of people here, a huge amount of “traffic” is generated through these platforms which provides countless opportunities to e.g. curate content relevant to your own area of passion.
