"Make your social media presence a priority," she advises.

By Lauren Metz

While you were building your CityVille empire, Bethenny Frankel was turning social time into big business.

Talking to CNN about her mega financial successes, the deal maker explains part of her secret, "Make your social media presence a priority." That's right – Facebook isn't just for ex stalking and "happy birthday" after thoughts.

The Bethenny Ever After star further elaborates, "Social media is a way to authentically communicate with my fans and to find out who they really are, as well as determine what they want and need. I give daily updates on new product launches, personal appearances, and what's new in my life, and see social media as a wonderful way to obtain feedback from my fans."

Not to toot her own horn, but B's earned her street cred in the online land. "I currently have over 582,000 Twitter followers, and 690,350 Facebook followers. My newsletter, website, Twitter and Facebook followers are engaged audiences who know me intimately." She's not joking – Bethenny puts everything into the virtual arena from links to her favorite recipes to her sleeping patterns. "Do you ever have a nightmare that lasts for hours?you wake up and enter back into it.what a nightmare!Literally!" she recently shared.
