Get Referrals Using Social Networks

Social Networks are Another Way to gain Referrals. First of all, every social network has either a profile page or place to put your signature line, so essentially every move you make on a social network will either drive traffic directly to you, or make your blog more search engine friendly. The rules of etiquette for social networks are basically the same as forum posting. Try to find popular topics to comment on, comment on blogs, create a blog. They are called "Social" networks for a reason.Everyone already knows about myspace and facebook, but did you know there are also some "Social Networks" that actually pay?

Get Referrals with Referral Exchange Programs

Until this point all of my posts could be applied to any program. This post is specifically catering to free business opportunities. There are several referral exchange programs and they all work on the basic same premises. You must take some sort of action to earn credits. In turn you use the credits to buy referrals for your own opportunities. Actions include but are not limited to joining someone else's OP, clicking links, and referring people.
