Social Networking for Businesses Comes to the Mt. Airy Business Association

Philadelphia, PA, --- “Ask the average business owner if a commitment to social networking is a part of their business plan and you may receive a raise of an eye brow in response,” says Kim Miller, MABA President. Many business owners don't realize that their customers are online discussing their business. Social sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are fast becoming an essential aspect of any businesses marketing mix.

WrapMail just released an email system for social networing that's pretty compelling:

WrapMail gives users the ability to drive traffic directly to their respective social network pages such as Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter, personal blogs, etc…by including links and logos embedded in every email they send.

WrapMail is the first company in the world to successfully marry social networking elements and email. MySpace has recently announced an email product, but it requires that you have a profile with them and will not allow for your other social network profiles to be included.

There are many themes for the top and bottom to choose from and more will be added every week. There’s a logo library available of the world’s 25 largest social networks and common blogs. Users can set a link for each logo and also upload their own images. Four images show in each Wrap and if more than four are selected they will rotate with every email. There is no cost for the service, which means this is free awesomeness.
