So you got a new and exciting gig as a network marketer and you have made your first few posts and all you see is your teammates and your mom leaving a comment on them…
Have you ever questioned what could be the reason no-one engages with your social media posts?
It used to happen to me too, but rather than keep up the endless cycle of getting no engagement and never generating new leads, I went searching for the answer to why other people seemed to have so much engagement. What they were doing that I wasn’t ?…
What I found was that the strategies I was using on Facebook were actually doing me more harm than good.
Like many Network Marketers, I had exhausted my warm market and i was driving my cold market away with the types of posts and content I was putting out on social media.
I did what I thought were logical things to do and I had been following exactly what my leaders in my company were telling me to do, so it should be working shouldn’t it?
I had started a Facebook page which branded my Network Marketing Company and I started posting pictures of my products promoting, how awesome they were. I posted before and after shots, I friend requested anyone I came across and sent them all messages about my AWESOME ‘business opportunity’.
I did exactly what I was told and it had worked for my up-line leaders, so it should for me too?
Hmmm, unfortunately not!
What I learned through my journey is that people (yes myself included) tend to get so excited about their company and products and we forget that it’s not about the products or business.
Our Facebook friends don’t care about seeing what our products look like, they don’t care about our amazing healing ingredients and acne zapping potions. They don’t care about us (sorry but it’s the truth)…
They only care about what they can get out if it and what’s in it for them.
In fact, their are so many MAJOR prospecting mistakes being made by people using social media to build their business.
Unfortunately, network marketers are still being taught online prospecting methods that are all about the sale and come across as “spammy” which annoy their viewers and give the network marketing profession (and all online businesses for that matter) a bad reputation. Disappointingly, they have been turned into human spam bots by their up-line and company leaders…
STOP talking about your company and the company’s products. It does more damage than you realize!
“Money is just a representation of how much value you bring to the world”.
Building a business is actually about caring about people, becoming a person of value and being someone uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems. You want to build up a rapport and have some sort of like and trust before going straight into the sale.
Now I am not saying that prospecting online doesn’t work, however you need to be skilled recruiter and that means they’ve devoted the time and effort to learn this very difficult skill and have mastered it. So if that’s the strategy you choose to use then you need to make sure you get it right!
Hey look, if you’re still a little unsure on where you fall on the “spammer scale”, then here’s a guide of sorts…
Warning Signs That You’re a SPAMMER not a PROSPECTOR
1) Your first private message to a stranger or someone you haven’t spoken to in 10 years, includes a link to join your opportunity.
2) You use the same copy and paste message shared out by your entire team and send it to people you have just friend requested and know nothing about.
3) You post direct links to your products, opportunity or website on social media or even worse, you post links in the comments section of OTHER people’s social media posts.
4) Your Facebook newsfeed is FULL of posts about your company or products. You constantly mention the name of the company (BIG NO NO) and you constantly put up pictures of the actual products (ALSO BIG NO NO).
P.S. The name of your company and the actual products should be your biggest secret. You do not want people going to ‘google’ to do their own ‘research’ about your company and products. We all know how that turns out. Just create curiosity and intrigue about what you’re up to and what the products are.
5) You compulsively talk, message or post about your company or products, whether anyone is interested or not.
“When I Stopped Prospecting People, My Business Started Growing!”
Its was an amazing feeling to have the weight lifted from my shoulders and to just go to my kids events without having that little voice in the back of my head telling me to bring up my products and business opportunity . Just having genuine conversations with no hidden agendas was so refreshing and I had the” pep in my step” back again.
As soon as i stopped prospecting and chasing everyone within 3 feet of me I noticed my business started to grow!
I know what you’re asking yourself, “ how ? how is it possible that your business grew?”
It’s simple, (well once you make the shift in mindset really). Prospecting is all about YOU and how you can get people to do what you want them to do. It has nothing to do with them…and that’s where i made the switch and found a better way.
How I ditched prospecting, with the help of some extraordinary mentors, was an online recruiting strategy, which…
Enabled me to passively generate leads, customers and new reps –all while enjoying time with my family and doing the things I love.
Rather than making spammy posts or cold messaging people on social media, I learned how to attract the people to me who are most interested in what I have to offer, using their platform!
In fact, every day now, I awake to an email inbox full of notifications for new leads and commissions I earned while sleeping!
This strategy is called ‘attraction marketing’, which is an internet marketing strategy designed for networkers and people in direct sales! If you are tired of chasing people about your business and being unfriended on social media, you might want to learn a thing or to about attraction marketing.
Imagine waking up to leads and sales in your inbox every morning, as well as messages from people curious about joining your business. This isn’t some made up hokey pokey thing. This is a step by step proven strategy that works.
I get it, you are probably thinking this “sounds too good to be true”.
I thought that too until I tried the methods myself because I was tired of feeling stuck, overwhelmed and chasing people about my business. It was my last hope and now I share these strategies because I hate to think of other online business owners in the same position I once was and ready to call it quits.
I want you to be successful and to feel that weight lifted so you can enjoy doing the things that you love with the people that you love most.
No more struggling to generate fresh leads because you’ve annoyed your audience. No more wondering if you’ll make your payments because you cant seem to connect with anyone interested in what you have to offer…You can say goodbye to all the frustration and overwhelm now!
So, if you’re ready to attract people to YOU, who are already interested in what you have to offer, and build your business online with a proven strategy, then you can get started now right > HERE
