Recruiting on Social Media

recruiting on social media

If you’ve been in network marketing for a while then the chances are you’ll remember some of those hotel meetings where only your family showed up. Or that meal with a promising first date where you were so obsessed with recruiting people to your team that you tried to sign up the waiter. Never saw them again, right?

Luckily for many of us, those recruiting mistakes were made before the internet and social media.

Today, I see terrible mistakes being made online and these things can’t be unseen so it’s more important than ever to get it right.

The Internet Never Forgets and It’s Ruining It for Everyone Else

I once heard that success in business is all about ‘time’ and ‘place’. As a professional marketer, I would add ‘message’ to the equation as well.

Unfortunately, network marketers today are being taught online prospecting and recruiting methods, which include the wrong message, at the wrong time and most definitely in all the wrong places!

Here’s the truth!

recruiting on social media

 

There is a VERY fine line between prospecting on social media and spamming people. I’m sorry to say that most network marketers have been turned into human spam bots by their upline and company leaders…

 

 

 

 

So if you’re still a little  fuzzy on whether you are a spammer or not, here’s a couple of little tests for you …

Warning Signs That Your Prospecting Efforts are Actually SPAM

1) You first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity.

2) You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media posts.

Of course you don’t do those things do you?

Luckily for me, I found a better way to work successfully online very quickly in my career. 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.

Every morning I awake to quality leads in my inbox and commission payments hitting my bank account.

This strategy that I found is called ‘attraction marketing’, which is an internet marketing strategy designed for networkers and people in direct sales!

PS:So we know that Success is rarely a straight line right? 

But getting your business off the ground in the first place is the greatest challenge…there are so many forces weighing you down and keeping you from gaining upward momentum.
Even when you’re picking up speed and finally have enough lift to start climbing higher, there will be various challenges pulling and pushing you left and right, making it difficult to keep everything balanced and on track.
But…once you’ve reached “cruising altitude,” things get MUCH easier.

I’m blown away by the huge numbers of you who are joining Traffic Authority so THANKS guys!

Podcast Launch Traffic Authority

For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about:

Question: Do You Need High Quality Traffic For Your Online Business?

Answer: Of Course You Do! We ALL Do!

We all need traffic, and it’s what I continually find that most marketers are struggling with – they are just not getting traffic to their money-making websites.

That’s why I was so happy back in the Autumn to have found this game-changing traffic platform which means I can now control traffic to my sites.

I get access to an UNLIMITED amount of the highest converting traffic available for business opportunities, affiliate marketing offers, network marketing, or any work from home businesses. This traffic is 100% USA and Canada based, so I’ll never have to waste my advertising dollars on dodgy international traffic ever again.

So if YOU want to be in complete control of your traffic, you’re in the right place. All orders start delivering clicks to your website instantly and you can even change your link, pause or start your order at any time on demand.

You can start to get traffic, leads, and sales for your online business, create your free account right now!

But, I digress!

Back to my Podcast Launch

So far this year, I’ve already invested well over two thousand dollars on training and education for myself and I’m so looking forward to sharing some of the valuable things I’ve learnt.

So watch this space!

Part of my plan this year is to find ways of connecting better with people and so I am pleased to announce my new WIN WITH ROBIN Podcast Launch.

So – favour time – can I ask you to take a couple of minutes? Just grab a mug of coffee and have a listen and hopefully you will also pick up a valuable tip here and there. If so then please share with friends, colleagues and team mates so I can reach more people who might need support and advice.

Apparently it’s the first few days that can make or break a podcast launch on iTunes so it would be really cool if you could download a couple of episodes.

13 Simple Tips To Maximise Your Facebook Page

Top 13 Best Practices for Facebook Pages

Hi!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

I get a lot of business from Facebook and whether you like Social Media or not, you’d be foolish to ignore such a huge marketplace.facebook logo

I am not going into massive detail here – I could help you in far greater depth than a single post would allow if you’d like some coaching from me – see my Autumn coaching offer if you’re interested – http://bit.ly/1tSqeVG

 

#1. Be Engaging

Fan engagement should be your goal, such as; questions, fill-in-the-blanks, photos that ask questions.

You want them to Like, Comment and Share in ascending order of importance to you.

The more shares you get the greater your reach.

 

#2. Leverage Facebook Ads

You must spend money on ads nowadays with Facebook. Properly done you can generate a lot of business for free from Facebook but you still have to spend money on a regular basis to beef up your reach. Gone are the days when all your people saw all your posts.

 

#3. Have a Posting Strategy

Internet Flow Chart Red MarkerYou need to think long and hard about what you’re trying to do and who you are attempting to reach and what you want them to do.

What kind of identity and tone will your Page have?

What content gets you the best reaction?

Map out your posts in advance. This is something almost nobody does. Most people just post whatever on the day depending on how the are feeling at that moment! Try and build a momentum in the days prior to a launch or to build up sales.

Check out tools like Post Planner and Buffer, both of which I use.

 

#4. Be Human

Remember – people like doing business with people and after all, Facebook is a ‘Social Media’ not just a marketplace.

Always post in the 1st Person.

Don’t be boring and sterile! Imagine you are talking to a real live person, your ideal customer or ‘avatar’. If you haven’t got a detailed picture of your avatar then sit down and do this now! Hint: without this most of your advertising will be wasted.

Give your fans someone to connect with. Build your BRAND around you!

For example, I am your ‘Black Belt Success Coach!’ This doesn’t mean I walk around in a karate suit all day! It just makes me a little different and people can identify with this.

 

#5. Use Hashtags Intelligently

Careful and sparing use of hashtags can expand your reach considerably and is fantastic for crossing different social platforms.

Hashtags can help you amplify your brand.

They are also useful for promoting special offers and events and building that ‘tribe’ feeling amongst your fans.

A quick word of caution however! Research your hashtag first – BEFORE you use it. That way you’ll avoid using one that has been used before with embarrassing connotations. You can check easily by typing www.facebook.com/hashtag/then your own word at the end.

Remember to make your hashtag all one word and don’t worry about capitals.

 

#6. Monitor Page Insights

Insights have been recently updated and are far easier to understand than before.

You just HAVE to know which of your posts are outperforming the others.

 

#7. Post Lots of Photos

It’s well known that pictures get the highest engagement.Proud Moment - My 1st Dan Grading

They are 53% more likely to be ‘liked.’

Pictures get 104% more comments.

They get 84% more click-throughs.

 

#8. Run Contests

We all like to win stuff, don’t we? It’s human nature, end of story.

Make sure you use an approved App for this and don’t run foul of Facebook rules regarding contests. They do generate a ton of leads when done correctly!

 

#9. Upload a Great Profile Photo

You already know that images are important but easily the most important picture on Facebook is your profile picture.

 

#10. Leverage Your Cover Photo

Your Cover Photo must speak about your Brand but without overdoing it!

Don’t ask for their hand in marriage on the first date!

Preferably the image will be unique to you.

I would advise changing the photo every month or so to help with rankings although very few people do this.

Your picture MUST be of the highest quality you can get.

 

#11. Minimise the Number of Apps

Otherwise you’ll get a slow loading page, potential conflicts and various other malfunctions that dilute your Brand.

 

#12. Complete Your About Section

I cannot believe the number of people who fail to utilise this very important area of their page!

When people are short of time they’ll go to your About section first. So will search engines.

Always include the URL’s of your websites, (but leave out the http://).

 

#13. Have Fun

10305072_622854894455463_1434158376396164057_nMake people laugh and they’ll remember you for longer and tell their friends too!

Think back to why you first joined Facebook!

 

 

That’s it!

Hope you got some value from this post and please leave me a comment if you did.

All the best!
