How to Grow Your Network Marketing Business With Social Media & Facebook

If you haven’t heard about Facebook yet, you must have been hiding under a rock. Facebook is a social media website that is now the 2nd most visited website in the world, second only to Google. There are an estimated 300 million active users on Facebook. It’s interactive platform makes it an awesome tool to help grow your network marketing business by generating free leads. You can connect with people from all over world 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. Best of all, it’s free to join.

Below are my top 3 tips to growing your network marketing business on Facebook:

  • Create An Eye Catching Profile: You only get one chance to make a first impression so make it a great one. In your profile, post a nice picture that represents you and how you conduct business. Facebook allows you space in your profile to include things about yourself such as your websites, your favorite books, your favorite quotes, your interest & hobbies and your contact information. Take your time filling out your profile and really let yourself shine here. It is important to direct your leads to a blog or website that invites them to subscribe to your newsletter or updates. Once you capture your lead’s information, you can communicate with them forever or at least until they unsubscribe. This is golden!
  • Get Friends: The more friends you have, the more opportunities you have to interact with people, invite them to visit your website and generate more leads. Facebook doesn’t like it when you try to add too many friends in one day so only add about 50-75 friends a day at most. You want to add friends who are also trying to grow their network marketing business on Facebook or people who are interesting in business opportunities or making more money. The best way to find these people are by joining groups with that focus. Once you join the related groups, start adding friends from that group. The important thing to focus on is not the quantity of friends but the quality of your relationship with your friends. Always keep that in mind.
  • Communicate: It’s important to be active on Facebook everyday. Update your status 5-10 a day with inspirational quotes, links to your recent blog posts and videos, invitations to your websites, links to quality information that are network marketing related and even tidbits about what is going in your life. You want to focus on offering quality content to your friends so that they recognize you as someone who is there to help and inspire them. Comment on your friends’ posts and at your group pages. Use the power of video to communicate with all your friends and even send individual videos to them. People like to watch videos and it is a great way for people to really get to know you.

The key points to remember when growing your network marketing business on Facebook is to have lots of friends, stay active, provide quality content and have a way to capture your lead’s information through a blog or capture page.

When done right, you can generate a lion’s share of free leads from your Facebook activities. In order to take advantage of this awesome opportunity, you have to get in the game. So head on over to Facebook now and get started today!

Divorce By Social Media (Facebook, Classmates)

A recent client of mine told me about how his wife had reconnected with an old boyfriend from high school through Facebook. They hadn’t seen each other in 38 years and considered each other their “first love”. As we all know, a “first love” is a tough bond to break especially when there was physical intimacy involved.

He told me that her old boyfriend found her on Facebook and sent her a contact note. She responded back by telling him she was married and had 4 children. He wanted to hear more about her life and what she had been doing all those 38 years. Unbeknownst to her, he had been divorced and was thinking about her. Eventually, her marriage seemed unfulfilling to her too and unfortunately, she shared that with her exboyfriend. He was an engineer and had been divorced for 3 years. He wanted to reconnect with her and she thought it would be nice to see him too.So she traveled to Ohio to meet him and never told her husband where she was going. She just packed her bags for a “weekend getaway”.

When she returned she told her husband of 30+ years that she was divorcing him. She wanted out and had talked to a lawyer about putting the divorce together. She told their grown children that she was divorcing their father and told all kinds of lies about him. She also told the children that he was unfaithful and abusive towards her. The lies got even worse the more time she spent with her old flame talking on the phone and chatting on Facebook. With her lies, she turned her children and family against him.

The lies were so destructive and painful he nearly had a nervous breakdown. He begged, pleaded, groveled, wept and cried to get her back. She destroyed this man’s life because of an affair she wanted and tried to justify it with her own lies. This woman was very deceitful and filled with hate.

When I met with this man at my office, he was beside himself. He had nowhere to turn and his children wanted nothing to do with him. His wife hated him and was bent on taking him down. He asked me, “Dr. Mike, where do I go from here? I have done nothing that she has accused me of. I have been faithful to her and loved her, but she always seemed unhappy.I’ve tried talking with her, planning vacations, etc., but it just never worked out. I even asked her to go to marriage counseling, which she refused. I know I wasn’t a perfect husband, but I tried everything possible to make her happy. “

He told me that he found out who the guy was, what kind of job he had and the type of people he was involved with.He also knew how many times he was divorced and even current relationships the man was involved in. He had all the emails they sent each other with the time and date stamps on them.He wanted to know why another man would take his wife away, knowing full-well she was still married. That was a fair question. Relationships can be so complex!They are hard to understand at times. “Who should get the blame,” he asked? I told him, “They both should. He shares in equal blame.The reason you feel it’s more your wife’s fault is because she is the focal point of your pain.”

If you suspect that your spouse/partner is reconnecting with a former girlfriend, boyfriend, lover, etc., you need to confront them immediately. The longer you delay the more damage there will be and the possibility of your marriage will come to an end is likely. Confronting your spouse is not a bad thing – doing absolutely nothing is. You need a game plan when you talk to your spouse/partner. If you accuse them without knowing what you’re going to say, you’re headed for trouble so plan on that! More and more relationships have ended from social websites than ever before. If you are tempted to look up an old boyfriend or girlfriend, don’t. There is no reason to risk hurting your relationship with your spouse/partner by looking for past loves. Protect that relationship you’re in, guard it and enjoy it! Trying to rekindle a relationship with an old flame never works, especially if you’re in a committed relationship.

Do you suspect that your spouse has been cheating on you by using Facebook or Classmates.com? Have you seen the signs of them spending time texting excessively or on the computer? Then deal with the problem right away, don’t wait!

Making Best Use Of Internet Marketing Through Social Media

Internet marketing and its importance in the online world has grown immensely during the past decade. From learning the value of keywords and search engine optimization, marketers are increasingly inventive about the utilization of many different forms of advertising, marketing, increasing traffic and enhancing product and company loyalty. The use of Facebook in marketing is just one example of the importance of social media.

Facebook is less than a decade old, having been launched in 2004, yet it has three-quarters of a billion active users. It doesn’t take much imagination to see how this sizable group of contacts could make or break the success of a product or company. The “likes” or “dislikes” of a post can quickly boost a product name into orbit.

Since mid-2011, Facebook has inaugurated a special marketing portal where advertisers can promote brands on the social media site. Some top names in British advertising participated in the initial launch of the campaign. It is expected that more formal Facebook campaigns will be made by many businesses and organizations as they begin to recognize the value of almost instant name recognition around the world.

Benefits of using marketing campaigns based on Facebook are numerous. First is the name recognition of the site. The ease with which a Facebook page can be created and launched, and simplicity of adding information about a company or product makes the site attractive to beginning marketers. While it is easy to use, so that almost anyone can participate in postings on the site, it also can make use of some fairly complex marketing tactics.

The timeliness of using Facebook as a marketing tool is another positive aspect. With a network of friends in place, an announcement about a new product, modification of existing product, change in ownership, or other pertinent news can be posted and read by millions within moments. Users can share information about a particular benefit in the product, or a favorite artist, or how to use the product in a new way. A company doesn’t need to contact the press corps for an update on some important aspect of business. It’s much faster to post it on Facebook.

Internet marketing is sure to continue its meteoric growth, thanks to social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The sites allow for contacts to be spread in a way that was not possible only a decade ago. It is prudent for those involved in marketing campaigns to recognize and utilize that benefits of Facebook and other similar sites.
