When it comes to marketing your home business on facebook there is of course a beneficial way and not so beneficial way to do it. Many of us believe that we’re doing it that’s going to really benefit us, but are you getting the results you want? Let’s find out what a lot of us are doing wrong and what we can do about it….
When we get a facebook account as a home business entrepreneur, we feel like a kid in a candy store.
Because there’s over a billion members of facebook, and that means “cha ching” to us. When site like facebook has that many people, it means that we have more people to expose our business too.
So what do a lot of us do?
We put up a lot of links each day, and sometimes 20 times a day to see how many people will click on join us.
But let me ask you? Does this really work?
Well you many have very little success in doing so, but is it consistent?
Because people believe that they can make money fast with all the hype from all the links we put up on the wall. But after a week, if they don’t make any money, they let the business opportunity go and go to the next hyped up opportunity.
This is not the type of people that you really don’t want to have in your business. But if you’re posting a bunch of links each day without post any value, are you helping any?
Marketing Your Home Business – So What Is Facebook Really Used For?
We’re in the age of Social Media and it’s been going on since about 2006. Social Media has came into our lives and a lot of us based our lives around social media.
When it comes to social media, the idea is to be “social”. You want to build relations, or rekindle lost ones. These sites are a great place to meet people locally or around the world.
Since Facebook is a social media site, the purpose of it is to meet people and build relationships with people. As a home business entrepreneur, this should be your main focus on this site.
Yes there are other ways to build your business, Pay Pay Click being one. But even with Pay Per Click, when someone gets into your email list, you still have to build relationship and trust if you want to make a sale.
Now if you fall into any of these categories, then you may want to look into other strategies to grow your business. Facebook is used for social networking, and if this is not your mindset then it’s best to used more paid marketing…..
You Don’t Promote Value – People want to follow people who seem more concerned with the success of others and with consistently stay with them. You will grow a great reputation on how much value you promote
You Advertise Your Business On Other Peoples Walls That You Don’t Know – This really irritates a lot of people because it’s their wall, especially if they don’t know who you are. This can hurt their reputation and they have you to blame. This can give facebook heads up to terminate your account.
You Meet Someone For The First Time And You Vomit Your Opportunity On Them – This really irritates me. You meet someone for the first time, then they switch the conversation to their business opportunity as though they want to get the first punch. You know what they say, the person that lands the first punch usually wins, but in this case, I say NOT!
You Vomit Your Opportunity On Someone You Haven’t Talk To In Over A Year – Now this is tacky. If you only talk to someone once and then all of a sudden you come out the blue and promote your business opportunity to them. This sounds like an act of desperation.
You Tell Someone To Look At Your Opportunity Without Getting To Know Them – I’ve told many people that I wouldn’t look at their opportunity, and pissed off a lot, but I don’t care. At least I tried to give them advice on building rapport, although most got offended.
Now as you can see, these different categories really defeats the purpose of facebook. So what do you do? You can either change your approach and make efforts to build relationship, or get into some other strategy.
Now It’s Your Turn!
