1. Create your own network of professionals and groups who are interested in your products and services. Write some small articles about the uses and advantages of it. Even if you have only 400 members and the turnout ratio is just 1%, its a profitable choice for you.

Remember, if they are satisfied with your products or services they would recommend you to other friends in their list (2+ network) and it grows on.
2. If you don’t have your own products or services you can write an e-book and sell it to your networking group members. If you could write it in a better way, you could get repeated and recommended business too.
3. The third option is to sell your stuff. You can ‘recommend’ some used books or watches or bikes/cars to your networking group.
