Social networks have played a major role in how we communicate and network with people. From Geocities, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Linked, etc, all of these networks have completely transformed how we communicate.

The reason why social networks have been so effective is because they allow us to:

1. Connect with people or businesses
2. Share what we love
3. Create a dedicated following
4. Sell our products/services easily
5. Make easy money without any experience
6. Promote our businesses to the masses
7. And many more

What if I you too could learn how to create your traffic generating, money making social network without spending the millions or hundreds of thousands of dollars that these network did in the beginning, would you be interested? Well, brace yourself because in this course, you are going to learn how to do just that. I am going to teach you how anyone can create a thriving social network with Joomla! without knowing or writing a single line of code.

If you've ever wanted to create a social network for your business; a place where your clients, prospects and visitors can all meet and get life changing information and share contacts, ideas, etc, then this course is for you. See, when you provide your clients (and prospects) with a place that they can connect and learn from each other like linked in or Facebook, you will instantly increase your brand's visibility by a whopping 400%.

Features in this course includes:

  • User profile creation
  • Creation of groups
  • Creation of events
  • Adding videos from Youtube, Vimeo & 20+ video streaming websites
  • Create a bulletin board
  • Create a forum

Let's face it, using social websites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin for business and personal networking is great. However, the down side to that, you are driving traffic away from your website to their websites. Can you imagine if you could build a group, fan page, event creation on your website how that would drive up your traffic!

To create a social network with all the features you need will cost you at minimum $1000+. When you add maintenance, addons, etc, you could easily spend $5000. I am going to help you save thousands of dollars from hiring someone to create your website and show you how to do and...easy!
