Have you ever started a social media group or got involved in social media groups where no one was on the same page? A couple of people are blogging and the rest are pitching their opportunity. This type of group will go no where. So what can we do about this? Lets find out….
If you have a home business and doing online marketing, one of the best things you can leverage is being involved in a social media group. This is where people of like mindset can come together and share valuable information.
But does this always happen?
Well it depends…
If the people within the group are really serious and looking for tips to grow their business as well as sharing valuable tips through their experience, then definitely you’ll have a successful group. Otherwise, you’ll either have a pitch fest or a group of people who only wants to run the group their way.
Now this can cause some problems.
Because no one is really getting what they want.
If you’re a blogger, whether you’re doing video, writing or both, no one is going to read and syndicate your blog except for other bloggers.
If you’re always pitching, no one is going to really look at your opportunity because everyone as a “Every Man For Himself” mentality.
And if you’re only looking to run the group your way, well unless you start your own group, no one in that group is going to listen to you.
When all said and done, this group would be pretty divided. No one is getting what they want and everyone’s home business becomes stagnant.
So what to do?
Whenever you start a Social Media Group or become part of one, you have to be more cautious about what the group is really about. You want to pick a group that’s going to be relative to what you’re doing.
This is why if you have a home business and you’re marketing online, then you want to be part of a certain niche as far as social media groups. What do I mean by Niche Marketing?
Let’s say that you’re in an MLM Health and Wellness Company, and to build your brand you do both video blogs and write blog post. You want to focus on social media groups that have people who are in MLM and use blogging as a strategy.
Getting involved in a generic Home Business Group where the members are in a variety of business models and using a variety of different strategies to build their businesses can definitely stunt your growth.
