Building a name for yourself in social media is essential to succeed in multi-level or network marketing in the modern era. That requires you, the Network Marketer, to become an expert in SNM. You’ll need a comprehensive strategy, but more importantly, you’ll need to implement that strategy if you want to capitalize on the opportunities here. In this article, you’ll find detailed instructions for doing just that.
Let me preface this by saying that social media marketing differs entirely from anything else. It’s completely different from any other methods of advertising you’ve used before to expand your customer base and bring in new revenue. Realizing that consistency and perseverance are required for any success is crucial. The good news is that the fruits of your labor will be readily apparent very quickly.
Let’s get started: I’ll give you a high-level overview of social networking based on the training I attended the night before. Mike Dillard and Perry Belcher led the movement. Many people now participate in social media activities, following the crowd. However, some excel at it, and those don’t get it. Many people consider Perry, a leading expert in this field of study. He suggests breaking up your strategy for social media dominance on a global scale into three parts. The key to making money with them is striking a balance.
Stage 1: The Celebration
Second Stage: Your Own Home (your Blog)
Third Stage: Your Porch (your sales funnel)
If you mess up any of these steps, everyone and their dog will be talking about you online for the wrong reasons. Before you can even get going, your good name will have been slashed to pieces.
Stage 1: The Celebration
The point is to make connections and start making new friends. Perry is the type of guy who gets together with others to have a good time. Occasionally, but rarely, the topic of work will come up in conversation. While out with friends, don’t be that person who brings up how much they despise their job and everything that goes wrong there. But there’s always that one, and you know who I’m talking about. The typical Amway salesman or “Wanna Get Rich, Ask Me How” button pusher fits this description. At midnight, he will throw the business opportunity flyers in his pockets into the air.
It’s true, and I know you’ll laugh, but it was me in that video. It isn’t very comfortable to think back on now, but I used to try to sell my multi-level marketing opportunity to anyone who would listen. My only defense is that this is how I was taught to expand my business from the ground up. I did as I was told and started talking to anyone within three feet. They told me to be like a lion hunting for prey, and any conversation away from my products or business opportunity was fair game. See, I wanted to succeed so badly that I did exactly as I was told, no matter how unnatural it felt. I learned quickly and became an expert at making conversation in strange settings. You don’t want to be this guy, primarily online, because Social Media has rewritten MLM’s rules.
Unfortunately, network marketers are still encouraged to “Pitch, Pitch, Pitch” their way to the top. The way I know this is because. Just visit any of these sites, and you can read the posts. Hundreds of others continue to act like I did when I look at social media. Before they’ve even had a chance to introduce themselves, they’re already pitching their business idea. As I said, if you start behaving this way, your reputation will quickly suffer.
I sincerely pray that you can gain insight from my mistakes. You shouldn’t attend events with a shady plan for your company’s future. Relax, mingle, be yourself, enjoy yourself, and make new friends or acquaintances at this gathering. What would happen if you did that? People will start to warm up to you and be drawn to you. It would be best to look at the major social media sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, etc., precisely this way.
Think of Web 2.0 as a big party where you can meet new people and broaden your network. The occasional business-related distraction is acceptable but should not become the norm. The ratio of unique to business contacts should be around 80:20. You shouldn’t use social media as a place to push your products in people’s faces constantly. Trust me; no one will want to be your friend if that’s what you do. You may ask yourself, “Why am I even here if I can’t promote my company?” That’s a great question, and the following phases will explain how to make money from it.
Second Stage: Home Sweet Blog
The purpose of this interaction is to strengthen the bond between you. Establish rapport with new acquaintances I’m sure you’ve been to some great parties and social events. New friends and acquaintances will have been made. You may occasionally host these people at your home. Here, “your Blog” refers to your home. Remember that you are still in the process of getting to know these people. They want to hang out with you and have fun, so they’re coming to your house. To illustrate this point, you wouldn’t cram everyone into a room, launch into a business presentation, and start drawing random circles all over the whiteboard. You must fight off any temptation to behave similarly in this location. Do not bombard your blog with promotional material and information about your business venture.
Your blog is a great place to get to know your new friends on a deeper level. People will get a glimpse into your true character. Creating an in-depth “about me” section is the best way to address this in a blog. Describe yourself by sharing details about your background, interests, accomplishments, and hobbies. You and your family should also have photographs on hand. Finally, you should offer a valuable service to your customers. What you do can be deduced from this. They may learn that you provide social media training courses to increase interest in their business opportunity. Keep the description of your work to a minimum. You still shouldn’t try to sell them on your company right here.
Third Stage: Porch Sales
The point is to introduce your answers to potential issues these people might have. This stage typically occurs in your backyard, around the grill. People are more comfortable being themselves now that they have established friendships. After visiting your home and learning more about you, guests will frequently inquire about your line of work. The porch is the place to meet new people and conduct business. Your friends may be curious about how well your business is doing or what you do for a living. They may even admit that they must find other ways to make money.
I want you to picture the porch of your house as the hub of your business. Subtle references to your work, such as blog posts, videos, and other media. This is the starting point of your sales process. Your links should be hidden, providing just enough information to pique curiosity about your primary source of income. Your friend may find the solution to a problem there as well. The challenge, or balancing act, lies in striking the right tone between subtlety and visibility.
Your ultimate goal here is to get them to follow your link. However, we intend for them to feel as though they made the decision and bore the total weight of responsibility because of the system we’ve employed. They won’t do it until they have confidence in you.
Developing a successful social media presence is easy; keep these three steps in mind as you start. Keep in mind that success takes time, so be patient. Show your enthusiasm in everything you do and say. Providing as much value as possible is always preferable. Always tell the truth to others because having integrity makes you a tough person to re-con. Just be yourself and have fun; social media is not the place to hide or put on a false front.
People are more likely to do business with those they know, like, and trust; there is a mountain of evidence to support this.
Using SNM in this way allows you to reap the maximum benefits of social media and enjoy Extraordinary Achievement. Friends, credibility, and connections will flood in, and so will the benefits.
