About This Class
Learn how you can create your own social network that looks exactly like facebook and has many of the same features - but it doesn't cost you one red cent! This video series shows you exactly how to set it up.
Time for a little fun today. Chances are that you have a Facebook page. Almost everyone does these days. You likely spend a lot of time on that site too so you can connect with friends, relatives and old acquaintances.
However, have you ever thought of trying to harness the power of Facebook and put it to work for you?
At first glance this may seem to be a tall order, but there are some tools out there that can help you get it set up for nothing (other than the cost of registering a domain name and getting a hosting account). More on this in a bit.
Let's think about this for a moment. Besides the fact that it might be fun to have your own social network there is profit potential here too.
Do you have a hobby or interest? Why not set up your own social network for those who share your interest? Chances are they will join and start sharing with other members of the site.
Once you have a few members you can start advertising on the site. Just place some ads on your site such as Adsense or sell your own digital product to the members. You can even sell advertising space.
Remember these are extremely targeted leads since they joined your site because they were interested in the subject matter. This can be very profitable when done for a targeted micro niche.
