    CityVille Business Guide

    CityVille In CityVille you have many different businesses that help to drive your game economy. Goods produced by farms or brought in by ships are needed to supply each business which can then be sold for cash once the goods are used up. Some businesses will sue more goods than other ones and will generate more money for your city. It is up to you to decide which businesses you want to use in your city. Check the game often as Zynga will more than likely add more businesses as the game continues to develop.

    Managing Your Businesses

    CityVille In CityVille you need to not only collect money but you need to have enough goods and energy to get your coins for your businesses. Since energy isn’t unlimited and it can be difficult to get extra energy from Facebook friends when you need it you can approach money collection in a few different ways. First of all you can visit Facebook friends and collect an energy point each day for visiting your neighbors. This is great if you have plenty of friends but doesn’t work as well if you don’t. The second way you can approach managing your businesses is to divide your tasks up. For example for a couple of days you might just farm until you have enough goods to continuously fill your businesses up. You need to make sure you also have enough storage space so build plenty of barns and sheds. As you wait for crops to grow and your ships to come back to port you can use your reserve of goods to keep your businesses supplied and money rolling into your city. Remember you can also make additional cash by having franchises in your friends cities too so this is another approach to making money in the game.
