The popularity of social networking is a boon to people who want to earn extra money off the Web. The world wide web offers many moneymaking ventures that one can get into like selling merchandise, opening a blog, doing freelance work, direct selling, and many more. For business owners, automation and systematization of the online business is a great way of making it generate a steady revenue stream. Businesses that use the internet can basically run themselves and continue to make money even while the entrepreneur is asleep or even working in a regular job.

Indeed, the race is on reaching the most people at the least amount of time, in presenting a stand-out proposition and in making the sale. There is no limit to the amount of money that can be earned through the Web, which is like making money out of thin air. However, the internet being a great communications tool specifically the social networking sites, can also bring havoc to your business by just even  a single mistake. Social networkers must therefore be extra careful in every post they make because they are business people after all.

As a business owner and a social networker, it is your duty to engage friends and followers in current events i.e. political discussion relevant to your industry. This is to empower your market instead of pushing out political rants that may drive your followers away. Avoid also impulsive grievances with customers, partners, or competitors on a public forum. You want to be perceived as a professional and reputable company so you may want to also create a separate account for personal announcements, making your social networking site focused on marketing your company.  Be interactive and responsive as well especially to followers who comment on your links and those that give you a shout-out.
