    Let your customers and future employees navigate through your site to give them a chance to know you before they decide to spend money on your products or submit their resumes.
    Through features like blogs, discussion forums and photos, you can show off the best qualities of your products to your customers. Also allow for them to write customer reviews and update them with new promotions through RSS feeds. If you are able to establish a relationship with new customers, they will keep coming back!
    This is also the perfect chance to show off to potential employees who may come to your ning looking for job information. Maybe you’ll want to utilize the video feature and upload interviews about what your current employees love about their jobs. Remember, you can do all of this for free!

    By creating an internal social network for your company, you can utilize features such as real time chats, discussion forums, and event creations. So now employees in NYC and LA can collaborate on projects without having to book flights, hotel rooms, and food expenses because they will be able to work on projects from the comfort of their own offices.

    Basically for $24.95/mo you can upgrade your account to Ning Premium. With Ning Premium, you get rid of the Ning advertisements and use an ad provider such as Yahoo! Publisher or Google AdSense to put relevant ads on your social network. You can even run ads from an external provider such as AdBrite.com, and retain the ad revenue for your group. AdBrite.com can help to create customized ads that will be relevant to your social network.

    As a Network Creator, managing your members can become a daunting task. Ning offers a few easy solutions. One option is to promote your best members to administrators so they can have the same access and privileges. You can also choose to ban members from your network if they don’t fit your groups ideals.

    Privacy is an important issue these days, and Ning allows you to personalize your privacy settings. You can control who can see your profile, moderate who is allowed to join your network, and also monitor what type of content can be posted to your network. You can change your privacy settings easily anytime by going to Settings Privacy, and selecting the appropriate bubbles.

    Finally, if you have any trouble there is an entire “resource” page that offers instructions for basic functions, tutorials with pictures, a list of frequently asked questions and answers, and a form that allows you to directly contact the Ning team with your question. Solutions are usually provided within minutes.
