If you are looking to succeed in network marketing you have to use necessary tools and learn how to promote on Facebook to generate leads. Facebook is the one of the best sources of free leads. Facebook has over 500 million users worldwide. There is no other social media site online hotter than Facebook. I want to give you some tips and strategies to generate leads into your business using the world’s best social network site.
What is the standard for success in social media marketing? Well, the answer is simple; socializing on a social media website. Your fellow Facebook users do not want to be bombarded with business pitches and invites to your business opportunities. Someone always has the next best thing. I am sure you have seen messages “Once in a Lifetime Opportunity” or a “Ground Floor Opportunity Don’t Miss Out”. Trying to get followers this way is not best way how to promote on Facebook.
How to promote on Facebook for lead generation? The key is not to promote your business initially. Your main focus should be to connect with people by getting to know your friend list. Every day you login to your Facebook account, send out a greeting to your friends. Use that chat feature to spark conversation about common interest. Find out about your friends’ work, family, favorite sports team or favorite places to travel. The goal is to build rapport and trust with your friends’ list.
After building a list and networking with your friends in order to set yourself apart from others you have to add value. This can be achieved by showing your new friends’ useful sites or webinars available. Once you have made a connection and they know you, as a person they can trust, then they will want to know what you do.
Please understand me when I say, Facebook is not my main strategy for leads. But, it is the simplest. All I do is connect with my friends’ list and they have the option opt into my blog’s RSS feed and newsletter. This is only because they find what I have to say valuable and helpful. It’s also helpful to manage your new network by scheduling time within the day to follow up on messages and new friend requests.
Another way on how to promote on Facebook is to target people from Facebook Groups that relate to your niche market or product. You will need to stand out from the rest of the marketers out there. You should not send them a link to your business opportunity, this will automatically turn them off to you and they can report you as a spammer.
The cool thing about network marketing is you are building relationships and connections with people from all walks of life and from different countries around the world. The only thing you must understand is you’re in this business to network. If you follow these networking tips via Facebook, you will attract droves of people to you and explode your primary business. It will take patience but you will get there. Good Luck and See You At The Top.
