Many of us come to Network Marketing without any idea as to how to build a business. We are intrigued
by the idea of building a business through social media.
So we get a Facebook account and we plunge in.
When I came to MFF I had about 100 friends on Facebook. They were all family or friends that I knew
personally. It was a little scary to begin finding people on Facebook that might be interested in my eBook
Success in 10 Steps.
In those early days of Facebook there were few rules. As Facebook skyrocketed in influence, it started
changing things and it became a big "No, No!" to add large amounts of friends in one day. If you copied
and pasted too many identical messages, you would get a big warning sign. Facebook jail, anyone?
Today Facebook is the largest country on earth, with 1.65 billion monthly active users. The granddaddy
of social media has recently implemented new changes, which makes it even more difficult for people to
advertise “for free” on Facebook. Facebook controls the number of people who will see your post, and if
it’s “scammy,” they will make sure that very few people see it.
There are lots of people whining about this. I am constantly getting messages from people saying, “I’m
trying to see how many people are actually seeing my posts. If you see this please copy and paste and
blah, blah, blah.”
Instead of whining about the new Facebook algorithms, this is a time to use our Imaginations! There are
plenty of ways to use Facebook and other free social media platforms to share our products or opportunity,
but we must follow the rules and ramp up our Imaginations.
Using Imagination in social media involves the creative use of pictures and videos. It also involves writing
authentic posts that touch the reader’s heart.
Recently I created some posts as an experiment. Taking a very basic idea, I spent time "crafting" my
post. I was more transparent than ever and wrote from my heart. I used my Imagination! Those posts
have received MORE “likes” and “comments” than anything I've have ever posted! In fact several days later,
I am still receiving comments on them.
Building a network marketing over social media require Skills, Persistence and lots of Imagination.
But the results are totally worth it.
