Social Media Marketing for Network Marketers
Social media marketing for network marketers is without question one of the sexiest or at least most attractive lures for those who feel that their warm market has “dried up.” Though what I’m learning from mentors like Ray Higdon and Jerry Clark is that we can truly never run out of people to talk to – I do concede that marketing or more importantly – branding yourself using social media tools is an absolute must for any serious networker.
This said, I’m concerned with the number of people who – like I did early on – charge through the gates of social media marketing like raging bulls with firecrackers tied to their special places. No doubt you have these kind people populating your friend stream on Facebook with photos of their primary company’s products, testimonies to how great their products are, and invitations to “PM” them for details on how you, too can become financially free if you just join their company.
Social Media Marketing for Network Marketers Gone Wrong
Ray Higdon and I are in the same primary opportunity. As part of his fast start training, he begs and pleads with newly “minted” promoters to refrain from jumping on email and Facebook and blasting their friends with the classic “Hey guys, join my company! We’re all gonna be rich!” message.
So, what’s the best way to work the social media for network marketers angle without being ‘de-friended’ by your current Facebook Peeps?
Well, there are definite “DO’s” and definite “DONT’S” where prospecting and following up with leads on Facebook are concerned. Google Plus is also an area where you want to be sure and follow some etiquette.
You want to ease into conversations, form or re-establish relationships and engage with your customers in a way where you opportunity comes up naturally. Whether it’s seeking out a specific pain point they have about finances, family, or whatever – the key is to let things flow as naturally as possible.
Not sure how to go about this? No problem. There are two amazing social media marketing for network marketers specialists on deck ready to help you get the results you are after.
Social Media Marketers Ray Dietrich and Wes Schaeffer
Two of the best people I know of in terms of setting up and implementing a solid social media marketing strategy for network marketers are my good friends Ray Dietrich and Wes Schaeffer (AKA The Sales Whisperer®).
These guys are just plain good at what they do. What’s more – they don’t mince words with their clients, and they deliver the results you are after where social media marketing is concerned.
There’s really more to it than that. Ray is a master Facebook marketer. I am becoming a bit tired of the word “Ninja” where social media marketing is concerned. So, let’s change it up. Ray is a Social Media Marketing “Jedi!” Like an “Obi-Ray Kenobi!”
Seriously, engagement with your existing Facebook fans and followers and getting new, relevant connections on Facebook is where Ray really shines. Think of him as a Data Miner. He goes in, seeks out the best ways for you to connect and engage your audience, boost your Facebook edge rank, and expand your reach without having to first resort to advertising or paid promotions within Facebook.
Then, if you want to expand into these areas to drive traffic to your capture pages, etc. - no problem. Ray has you covered there as well, as he’s been advertising, testing, and split-testing on Facebook for years now.
You see, social media marketing for network marketers is about planning and execution. Mess these things up and you’ll set yourself back seriously where your online brand is concerned. Ray makes sure you go about your Facebook and other social media marketing the right way – so you “don’t get called out” for bad behavior.
