Some people think you need to be a great sales person to be a great network marketer.  Phooey on that.  You need to be a great duplicator, that’s all.  We often do the same exact things (If we’re doing it right, that is) for every new person we sponsor.  Wouldn’t it be great if there were some innovative ways to use social media to reduce some of that redundancy?  Well, lucky for you, we’ve gone into our secret lab and come out with a few awesome ways to do just that:

  1. Since so much of our success is contained in connecting with people, (and there’s only one of you, right?) why not use YouTube to record a. Your Story  b. A “thanks for being Facebook friends” video c. A testimonial video of you and your team?  If you put your mind to it, there are dozens of ways you can use YouTube to reduce redundancy.
  2. Facebook:  Record welcome videos and training videos to send to your team.  Send them in an email.  Post them to your group wall.  SUPER excited about a new person on the team?  Record a short video with them and post to your group wall to introduce them.  Awesome!
  3. Facebook:  Write a note (here’s mine) that tells your bullet-point story.  Link to your Facebook bio.  Link to any other interests you have that are on the web.  Remember, we’re looking for connecting points here.  Don’t forget the phrase I utter 1000 times in the Ninja Tactics Training Course: “People like people that are like themselves, and they work with people they like”.
  4. Screen Capture Videos:  (with Screenflow, Camtasia, or any other screen cap apps)  Record yourself going through pertinent training like your company website or any individual training sites.  Show the new person how to navigate through the chaff, and find the exact information they need.
  5. I’m sure you can come up with ALL kinds of new ways.  Share them in the comments!

June 16, 2011 Call – How to MASTER Facebook Lists to Grow your Network Marketing Business

(If you haven’t listened to the June 16th call yet, start by listening first, then come back to this page and the training video.  The link to the audiofile is below )

At the time of this writing, I have just over 2700 friends on Facebook, a few thousand Twitter followers (on various accounts), and a few hundred subscribers to my blogs and websites.  If I had to connect with certain groups of those people individually, it would take me forever.  Thankfully, that’s where Facebook friend lists come in.  Facebook friend lists allow you to organize people in logical ways, so when you need to go back and reference them, it’s easy!

We have developed some great ways to use friend lists “in the field”, most of which I’ll share in the screen capture video.  But the one I really like to use the most is when we go to a networking event.  Here’s the scenario:

  1. Collect business cards and chat with people at the networking event.  Remember not to “verbal vomit” everything there is to know about your company.
  2. Go home with stack of business cards, and sit at your computer.
  3. Make a friend list on Facebook, and name the list the name or the title of the event you just went to.  Just make it easy to remember and reference in the future.
  4. Go through the business cards, and search for people’s email addresses (first, more reliable) and names (second, less reliable; there may be many people named the same thing) and friend them on Facebook.  While you’re friending them, drop them a little note, tell them where/when you met, and use the pulldown menu to add them to the networking event list you just created.
  5. Now, as time goes by, you’ll see them pop up in your Facebook chat, and be reminded to follow up with them.  Remember, the fortune is in the follow up!

Lets make us some friend lists now!

June 9, 2011 Call – The Magic of Facebook Groups For Retention

(If you haven’t listened to the June 9th call yet, start by listening first, then come back to this page and the training video.  The link to the audiofile is below )

Top 5 Reasons why Facebook Groups help network marketing teams with retention.

Retention is the key word for anyone’s network marketing team.  It’s a constant struggle to make sure our whole team is happy, and will continue to order our products month after month.  Fortunately for us, the new iteration of Facebook Groups is perfect to help us with retention.

1.  They foster a sense of community and support.

Network marketing and mlm business attract people from every corner of society.  People come from all walks of life, and every imaginable background.  One thing we have in common though…we all want to be part of something bigger.  We have an innate need to be accepted, and supported. Oftentimes, people aren’t getting the support they need from family or friends, and there’s just something about the community that most network marketing companies have that really helps people get over their own fears and insecurities.  Facebook Groups has an amazing built in way for us to introduce, celebrate, and support our team members.  We simply tag them in a status message, and it gives a great way for the team to support and spread the love.

2.  They allow easy communication amongst teams.

Gone are the days of sending mass emails out to your team.  If your team is on a Facebook Group, one can simply post a question or statement as a status message, and your team will be push-notified.  Having an in-home presentation next Thursday?  Post it as a status message (or an event) to share with the group.  Logistics such as who’s bringing what are easily handled in a public format, so there are no surprises.  Maybe you got shipped too many of your product this month. Chances are, someone on your team needs exactly what you have.  Send a post and watch it go to a new home.

3.  They offer ridiculously easy file sharing of important documents and videos.

If your company has been around for a while, chances are there are an inordinate amount of documents and videos that exist in your back office.  As a leader, you may have a specific way of introducing the system to a new associate you’ve enrolled.  It’s so convenient that we can create documents that stay in the documents section of Facebook Groups.  Maybe it’s a training video, maybe it’s a new associate enrollment form, or the information of a new product.  Keep your downline fully informed by uploading relevant training videos and documents in the documents section.

4.  They give you amazing opportunity to leverage your time.

If you’ve reached a certain level of success with your company, or are like many people who feel like you don’t have enough hours in the day, then Facebook Groups has a wonderful solution for you.  Since the groups foster community, when a new team member posts a question to the group, the entire group as an opportunity to answer that question.  The larger your group, the faster that question can get answered.  Gone are the days where you are always the “go to” person.  Once you train your team to ask questions on the group first, you’ll see how valuable this method is. People’s questions will be answered in seconds, and they’ll be satisfied.

5.  They help you establish who the leaders are on your team, and who is currently emerging as a leader.

Leaders in network marketing float to the top quickly.  We can see who posts often, and who’s making all the right moves for success in mlm and network marketing.  They answer others questions, and are often real self-starters.   The beauty of Facebook Groups is that we can quickly and easily identify those on the team who have what it takes, and who needs a bit of help getting to that next level.  Without a constant form of communication, it would be far more difficult to identify these key people on your team.

If you haven’t set up a Facebook Group for your team yet do it right away!
