Here is a case study you can learn what to do & what NOT to do:
How to get business on social media.
This is how MLM Millionaire Club member Torrey Clement found the Club:
Apply this example to get more people in your downline!
Torrey messaged me on the Facebook page for the MLM Millionaire Club: “With all the information on the Net clamming to help build my business, how do I know what information to spend time on and what to pass on? I like what I have read of your page, but I don’t want to spend so much time reading about improving my business and not growing my business. It’s a lot of good information, but what action should I take now? Thanks for the help.” ~ Torrey
I replied: “Really Good Question Torrey! Where is your business now? what stage?”
Torry replied: “New here. Im a Juice Plus+ rep.”
My answer: “First action step: I would get this book: http://goo.gl/SeBVc. Just follow the steps.
We are using it in the MLM Millionaire Club, where I teach people to practice and deepen these skills. ~ Lots of people get confused. It’s a heck of a job to sort it all out. That’s what the Club does- takes the best and makes it usable for you for ongoing support. http://www.mlmmillionaireclub.com/membership/
You will see. It will all make good sense, and you’ll get better everyday. It will start slow, then it will gain momentum. Allow 3-5 years to get rich though. Do a little everyday. ~ Does this help, Torrey?” ~ Bess
Torrey’s answer: “Thanks Bess, yes, this is not a get rich idea. Thank you for the being willing to help. I’m going to check out everything you sent me. I know everyone started where I am.”
At the next MLM Millionaire Club call, Torrey was on it! She had joined the Club! She divulged that she had asked a number of MLM teachers the same question as an experiment to see who would be most helpful.
These are the responses she got:
“I was surprised how some brushed me off. Two said, “Stop reading and take action.” ? OK, I know that! I was asking them what action to take. Some sent me likes to some books to check, or only wanted me to buy their training series. Two didn’t answer; they were women. I understand they are busy public figures, but to me if you have a face book page, and you have the option to get messages, you would check them and want to answer. Maybe they will later.
To me, having a business Facebook page means you want to share your business/experience with everyone, and I would be glad someone asked me a question. They reached out to me I would reach back and help.”
Thanks Torrey! You showed us what it feels like in the reader’s shoes. It seems no one else answered as I did, really heard you, or asked the clarifying question (what stage are you on?) before giving advice. These are great points to consider.
Of all the MLM teachers out there, Torrey picked me to join! It only took a few minutes of my time, and a desire to help.
So here’s the formula for getting a downline on social media:
Think: Which aspects of your company’s products do you love most? ~ What type of customers do you enjoy most? (people who want to lose weight, save on energy bills, etc.)
Start a Facebook page and a blog geared to them with the same title (not your company name) that is the answer to your target market’s prayers, and will magnetize them to you.
Post items of value to them. Give tips you know they can use. Posts on your page can lead to your blog, which leads to your business. Only pitch your business 5-10% of the time on your page. Invite questions. Be a go-to expert for them on that topic. Invite them to share resources and what works for them. Ask questions to engage discussion.
Also add value in other forums, groups, and pages that are geared to the same folks. Comment on other pages as your page (sign your name). You can get more specific with someone you connect with by messages, phone, Skype, Google Plus Hangouts, etc.
That’s how Torrey and I found each other, and how you can find your future downline! Thank you Torry for letting us use this case study to help others.
It’s really just treating someone like you would if you met them at the gym or a networking group: aim to be helpful.
If you want help, I coach network marketers on this in the MLM Millionaire Club! ~ Bess
