You may be amazed at the rise of web2.0 (otherwise known as social networking) sites over the past few years, wondering how in the world did such casual sites which operate like de-stressing tools become such big business?

Well, the key element to doing business in today’s modern world is strategic networking. One of the fastest and most interactive methods is social marketing advertising.

In fact, a whole lot of companies create their own customized profiles on social media sites, and then add prospects and business contacts as friends. The key to social marketing networking is simply making friends and connecting with a targeted demographic audience.

No matter what your target demographic is, you’ll find various kinds of people from all backgrounds and cultures who eagerly log on to sites such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube and Squidoo regularly.
