For many people Orkut is a place to find the next date, talk with friends, spam the world (may they be
flogged stopped) or find an interesting hobby to share.
But many people do not realize that a lot of businesses use the forums not only to hire people but also to find contacts to market their goods around the world.
A prime example of this can be found in the Import-Export forum (which has become fairly active this month) where you can find:
- Anneke (originally from the Netherlands) helping businesses from Pakistan, India, etc. locate buyers and importers in her home country for their various products (which range from shoes to musical instruments to polyurethane foam).
- Sanjay and Jimmy are offering their export services, and their seems to be plenty of clients for the both of them.
- Konstantin is looking to import products to Europe (he's not picky about the type) and has already received several replies.
Much more could be sited in other forums (but I lack the time to cover them) so if you have a business with a global outreach you may want to consider getting your share of the profits by joining Orkut.
