These five websites offer the most opportunities for entrepreneurs.

You will be able to contact alumni and build important professional relationships within your industry. LinkedIn can introduce you to people in your industry that can help you find new jobs and professional services. Be sure to post in the discussion groups that interest you within your industry.

You can also focus your tweets toward specific audiences with the use of hash tags. You can filter your Twitter search results by hash tags, location, and current buzzwords. Twitter is a great place for an entrepreneur to get noticed.
  6. 6. YouTube YouTube gives you a platform to express yourself and your business ideas. It's always good for people to put a face to your online presence. They will get to hear your voice as you confidently discuss your business and what it can do for others. You can also share your YouTube videos on the other social media sites for more exposure. You can't go wrong with a quality YouTube video.

You could take a picture of your business logo or of something your business sells. A picture is worth a thousand words, so tell people what they want to hear by showing them. A quality Instagram account can take you far in your career.
