This article will reveal to you several quick ways to expand your FB network and open doors to building relationships with your colleagues. As you apply these steps diligently, you’ll see your leads increase approximately 10-15 a day . Get excited!!!
1. Adding Friends
There are two ways to target people in adding friends to your network. In using your Search tab, you can type in the interest (i.e. “MLM”), which will extract people and groups in this category allowing you to go through the members of various MLM groups and add friends (option 1). Or, you can type in gurus in your industry (i.e. Mike Dillard), join his/her fan page, and add friends there. This is where the “Big Dogs” hang out so add away.
Adding a personal message is recommended, using their name and a short statement such as “I see you’re also into network marketing, so am I! Lets connect.” Do not include your website. Your first priority should be to build relationships with your friends, consequently, building trust. You want to add between 30-50 new people a day. Keep people looking at your profile via your wall posts.
2. Adding Groups
Join as many big groups (over 500 members) as possible because here you’ll be marketing yourself and gaining new leads. You can use the same method as adding friends when searching for various groups, using interests such as “attraction marketing” or well known names in your industry.
3. Starting Your Own Group
Here is where you can effectively build your list! Take a look at other groups and keywords to get an idea for your own. Or use your brand name to give it originality and creativity (recommended). What is the purpose of your group? In what ways do you want your members to benefit for joining? Just some food for thought.
4. Inviting Friends
Once you’ve created your group, you can invite people to join. Invite no more than 50 at a time using a personal message. Adding and inviting friends takes about 20-40 minutes a day and with consistency, you will being to generate at least 10-20 leads a day.
5. Broadcast Emails
The power is in the list and you’re building your own list (yah) from your group! As the creator of your group, you have the ability to send inbox messages to your members. Don’t abuse or overwhelm your audience. Broadcasting every other day works. Your messages can range from hot topics such as effective marketing, recruiting, generating free leads, etc. Nothing pitchy. Increase your value to your members from the knowledge you’ve gained in the industry. Oh yeah, you want your subject header to be appealing and captivating .
6. Wall Posts on Groups
In your Wall Posts, create curiosity and intrigue. Statements that are short and to the point are perfect.
7. Wall Posts on Friends Walls
Posting on your friends walls is the opportunity to build relationships. You can comment on their profile or recent wall posts, share YouTube links, or talk about a system. The powerful thing here is that with posting on friends walls, their friends see your post, therefore, making a greater connection.
8. Post Videos in Groups
Uploading videos on your (or any other) groups’ wall is simple and useful as members visit wall posts regularly. You are continuously making a bond which builds trust and drives people to seek you and your knowledge.
9. Cross Pollinate with other Group Owners
Once your group is large enough (over 500 members), you can talk with another group owner, compliment, and ask to cross pollinate. In other words, ask their group members to join others to help expand and build a larger connection.
