How To Avoid Sabotaging Your Network Marketing Business On Social Media
Have you ever wondered if your business posts are annoying the heck out of people?
The truth is that many Network Marketers are unknowingly sabotaging their business on social media. In this blog post I’m going to share 5 different types of posts that are turning people off, but most importantly I’m going to share a strategy that will actually help you grow your business online.
Most up-lines are teaching an extremely outdated approach to building online. What worked 5 years ago to bring massive success to others in your company doesn’t work anymore.
Even worse, it might actually be repelling people.
Top 5 Warning Signs That Your Social Media Posts Are Actually Spam
- Do you post photos of yourself drinking your magic shake?
- Is your first private message to a stranger on social media including a link to join your opportunity?
- Is your Facebook feed 90% before/after photos?
- Do you PM people you haven’t spoken to since High School?
- Do you engage in interactions online, with a hidden agenda, hoping to transition the topic to something that would get people interested in your opportunity, without caring about knowing the other person?
If you answered “Yup” to any of then above questions then you are probably ready for a new strategy.
And trust me I am speaking from experience.
I’ve done it too 🙂
Now, i’m not saying you need to get off of social media and grow your business the old school way with home parties, 3 way calls, and coffee shop meetings. Building your business online isn’t just possible, but it’s also smart.
Last month alone I recruited 90 new people into my business by using a proven online strategy called attraction marketing. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of attraction marketing I want to share the number 1 thing that you can do immediately to recruit new people on social media…
Quit Posting The Name Of Your Company
People shouldn’t even be able to figure out which company you’re with. Now i know this might be controversial, but you want to create a little bit of intrigue and curiosity.When you post the name of your company you are allowing people to get their information from Google. They can do this without ever having a conversation with you. This means they will make their own assessment based off of what they read online. Or even worse they could potentially join someone else’s team.
By posting about your company, you are saying the company plays a bigger role in helping them, than you do. You’re just a sales person – an unimportant commodity – they don’t need. In fact, if you are perceived as a sales person, you are repelling your prospects!
Or they will read a bunch of negative stuff on Google and not want to talk to you. Obviously, in a business that relies on trust and relationships, the prospect NEEDS YOU.
Create a little mystery and curiosity, by focusing on what you can do for people or help them with. And if you haven’t figured it out already, all these lessons apply to building OFFLINE, as well as ONLINE. DO NOT diminish the critical role you play as an advisor and expert in the eyes of your prospect.
Great networkers position themselves as advisors (not sales people), who can help others get what they want.
But here’s the interesting thing.
“When I Stopped Prospecting People, My Business Started Growing!”
I can’t tell you how relieved and at peace I felt, when I once again, was able to go out with my friends, visiting a family member’s home or be in a public place without having to think about prospecting anyone.
Just enjoying being normal again, was incredible, after two years of being taught that “everyone was a prospect” and approaching every conversation with a hidden agenda, I was free!
That’s because it wasn’t until I STOPPED prospecting, that my business actually started growing!
At this point, you may be asking, “then how on earth did your business grow?”
Well before I answer that, I have to say that there are people who are very skilled prospectors and recruiters who completely disregard the issues I mentioned above.
They knowingly and without shame, approach every interaction with a stranger as a prospecting opportunity.
Getting ridiculed at or straight up ignored by prospects is no big deal, as long as some people say ‘yes.’
The problem with prospecting in general, as it’s normally taught, is that the mindset going in, is still about what YOU want people to do and about manipulating people into doing what you want them to do.
In other words, it’s about YOU, not them. I didn’t like that, but I still did it for a little while… until I did find a better way.
But the reason I was able to quit prospecting was because, with the help of some extraordinary mentors, I eventually discovered an online recruiting strategy, which…
Enabled me to recruit more people in 1 Day, than the most skilled recruiter in the world can do in 1 month. I was able to passively generate leads, customers and new reps – even when I was out having fun with friends and family.
(Hence why I didn’t have to worry about prospecting them!)
Rather than spending hours spamming or private messaging people on social media, I learned how to legitimately get Facebook and other networks to actually help me attract the people who are most interested in what I have to offer, using their ads platform! (i.e. going legit!)
In fact, every day lately, I’ve awoken to an email inbox full of notifications for new leads, new customers, new team members and commissions I earned while sleeping!
This strategy is called ‘attraction marketing’,which is an internet marketing strategy designed for network marketers and people in direct sales!
Earlier I showed you how I used to post pictures of myself drinking my shake. I was pretty clueless when it came to building my business online.
Thankfully I came across this FREE 5 Day Bootcamp that taught me how to use a strategy called “Attraction Marketing” to grow my business.
So if you are wondering what Attraction Marketing is all about I want you to imagine this…
You wake up in the morning, open up your email, and smile. You smile because you see commissions, new leads, and people applying to join your team. This didn’t happen over night or by accident. It happened because you followed a proven step by step system to attract people to you online.
I am not talking about your aunt Sally, your BFF, or your mother in law. I am talking about highly qualified people that you’ve never physically met.
That is “Attraction Marketing”. Pretty cool, right?
Now, you might be thinking. “Ummm…this sounds too good to be true”. If that is what you are thinking trust me. I get it.
When this method was first introduced to me I thought the same thing. But I was also ready to try something new, because spamming my newsfeed with lame selfies was getting pretty old.
So, if you’re ready to build your business online with a proven strategy then get started with this FREE 5 Day Bootcamp
