Well its more so...information. Although I am a bit incognito on the site, I would not have been able to develop my biggest accomplishment without the help of the ning community. I know how hard it is trying to be a social entrepreneur or small business owner with limited startup capital. You are required to wear many hats and consulting can be very expensive. I have found another community of sorts to help me with services to improve my site that I could not otherwise afford called http://bit.ly/94b89K. Everything cost five dollars and upgrades may cost a bit more. Also, the ning community is very innovative, and it may be another way to generate some income selling gigs to other business who don't necessarily desire to run their own social network, but could use tech advice.
Here are a few of my purchases for 5 bucks. I have been trying to get a wkipdia page to drive traffic to my site, but I needed more independent sources. Well here is how I got them.
1. publish your tech article on a PR4 website-5
2. create a detail wkipdia page for you--5
3. write a minimum 100 to word review about your website and post it to my PR4 blog, 9000 Twitter Followers and Facebook Fan page-5
4.make a professional, personalized, HD video with me as your spokesperson for $5.00 for this one I purchased a couple upgrades which include using my logo as the background and background music for a 30sec spot. Total cost 20.00
This is just a few of my purchases to give you an idea of what kind of services you can get. Hope this helps those who are trying to ball on a budget. You can check me out at http://bit.ly/HIgNSz
