This is an essential list for any business with an online presence. If you are only limiting your marketing scope to banners, search and blogging then you are missing out on reaching more potential customers, business partners, and employees. Below is an exceprt of the list:

If your business limits its online presence to advertising banners and blogging, it’s missing out. The Internet provides powerful networking opportunities that allow users to effectively target their audience by logging on to social sites like LinkedIn, Digg and more. Take advantage of these tools by asserting your company’s presence online and reaching more potential customers, business partners and employees.

Social-Media/Social-Bookmarking Sites
Share your favorite sites on the Web with potential clients and business partners by commenting on, uploading and ranking different newsworthy articles. You can also create a member profile that directs traffic back to your company’s Web site.

  1. Reddit: Upload stories and articles on reddit to drive traffic to your site or blog. Submit items often so that you’ll gain a more loyal following and increase your presence on the site.
  2. Digg: Digg has a huge following online because of its optimum usability. Visitors can submit and browse articles in categories like technology, business, entertainment, sports and more.
  3. Del.icio.us: Social bookmark your way to better business with sites like del.icio.us, which invite users to organize and publicize interesting items through tagging and networking.
  4. StumbleUpon: You’ll open your online presence up to a whole new audience just by adding the StumbleUpon toolbar to your browser and channel surf[ing] the Web. You’ll connect with friends and share your discoveries,  as well as meet people that have similar interests.

    I’ve been watching the growth of online professional networks for about a decade now. I would say that these split into two main types – relationship based and connection based. Tools like Plaxo are for ease of connection only. Linkedin is probably the best of the relationship based tools. Perhaps the worst of all the relationship based tools is Ecademy which is mainly comprised of slightly weird people offering strange life enhancing nonsense. The site has something of a history of treating its customers with contempt and has made some collaborations with rather shady organisations over the years. Not recommended for serious business people.
