Hey everyone, here are some quick tips on how to successfully network INSIDE FACEBOOK GROUPS run by other people First of all, let me say that posting in other people’s groups and other pages and things on Facebook here is one of the main ways I engage with people. HOWEVER… I do it very strategically and NOT salesy. So many people (a few of you too have done this and I’ve private messaged you about it) will think that by joining groups like this one, it gives you the right to just post whatever you want whenever you want and that’s mot a good plan.

What to do when networking in Facebook groups

You first want to read the groups “rules” or description which is usually located on the right column and/or it’s often pinned to the top of the group as an announcement. That will give you some basic guidelines as to when certain posts might be allowed for example; promotions on Wednesdays, inspiration on Tuesdays, Tips on Fridays, etc. I would also recommend trying to ENGAGE in the COMMENTS of a post whenever you have something of value to add. It will make you look good in the light of the leader of that group because Facebook loves it when posts get comments, not just likes and hearts. I would refrain from posting salesy mentions about your products and services except maybe once in a while, and best to do this INSIDE THE COMMENTS if you’re able to help someone with your expertise when they ask for support or have a question about something.

Blatently posting ads and salesy posts can get you removed and you’re not making friends then, just enemies. Instead, offer to give free advice, answer questions, give examples and share stories on posts that your comments are encouraged. If people like what you have to say then “ideally” they will click on your profile name to find out more about you and/or private message you. As for private messaging people inside other people’s groups… there’s nothing wrong with doing that if you have a reason OR if you’re very careful about the wording that you use. Again, do not send a message to promote yourself, it’s like asking someone to go to third base with someone on a first date. NOT COOL.

Build relationships by networking in Facebook groups

Social media is all about connecting, building relationships, sharing other people’s info, standing out, getting visibility but in a good way so people perceive you as an expert and THEN that makes them want to know more. Social media marketing and connecting takes time sometimes, it’s not a wham bam thank you mam kind of place. Try offering to have a phone conversation with people to find out more about THEM… NOT to talk about you. Business will come if you do the right things in your marketing plain and simple. If you aren’t sure what to do exactly or what to say then ask for and seek help – you must or you may end up burning bridges and being that person no one wants to get to know.

Comment below with your thoughts on this! Oh and PS – start your own group and build your own community, then you can do whatever you want inside that group. (although I still recommend giving a lot of value first before trying to sell or no one will come back)   —> Want to join a community of other motivated entrepreneurs for networking & masterminding every single month?

Young Woman Sitting in Front of a Computer and LaughingI see hundreds of business owners wasting hours of time each week on social media that I just want to cut to the chase.

If you’re looking to get paying clients from your efforts on social media websites and also get more people signed up on your email newsletter or to your website from your efforts on social media websites then these are:

The Top 8 “Productive” Things to Do On Social Media for Business

  1. Snap – Snap photos of yourself, family, kids, vacation, pet and wherever you go and then upload them so your followers and friends can get to know you better.
  2. Share – Share other people’s posts, pictures, promotions or quotes to give them social credit and you a good reputation for being generous and supportive online.
  3. Educate – Educate your followers and friends on things you are an expert in. It could be business related or any fun facts, information and more. They will look to you as more of an expert and refer you business too if you share really good stuff!
  4. Proclaim – Proclaim fun new things going on with you in your life, or your goals in business even and others will hold you accountable but also cheer you on.
  5. Engage – Comment on as many other posts you can that are relevant. For business topics, share your expertise, give free advice, resources and more; don’t hold back and people will take notice and refer you more or recommend you to their friends because you show so much generosity.
  6. Connect – Connect on a deeper level with as many people as you can also. Don’t just like their page or add them as a friend or connection, send them a private message, find out more about them and what they do.
  7. Converse – Take the online conversation to the next level. Suggest talking on the phone or meeting in person if you’re local to build a stronger relationship, become referral sources, collaborate or even do business.
  8. Have fun – Have fun with it but don’t waste too much time if you’re in business, get to the heart of the connection, take it to a conversation and see if or how you can help each other. Have fun by sharing fun images, quotes or things that really express your personality too!

It can be this simple.

Yet most entrepreneurs are just posting and maybe commenting on things….you’re not engaging others to your fullest extent. That is the big mistake.

In today’s video, I share some hot tips about social media as well as a couple of tips that you don’t want to be doing on Facebook.
Here’s a quick summary of the tips – watch the video for full info:
  1. Be careful using Facebook for your client / private groups (have a backup).
  2. Sending messages to say “please go like my page…” – this one is a pet peeve of mine, your messages asking to like your page is not an effective use of your time.
  3. Take the online relationship offline and connect.
  4. Make sure your contact info is complete!

Now, besides the super cool special offer (for $97!) on the video today, there is something else I wanted to bring to your attention.
I decided to hold a SUMMER SCHOOL type of thing where I’ll be doing a series of 4 ONE-DAY Mini Mastermind Meetings (in person).

But I’ve still got spots open for:
  • Friday, July 25th from 10-3
  • Wednesday, August 27th from 10-3 
  • Monday, September 22 from 10-3
They will all be held in the greater Sacramento or Roseville, CA areas, exact meeting locations will be sent only to those who register. Contact me now if you’re interested in one of those spots. Max 10 people per date and they are filling up – oh and they’re $250 for the whole day with me too or discounted if you do more than one!

Please let me know how I can support you in growing, marketing and monetizing your business!

I’d love to hear your feedback and take aways from the video!

It’s almost June, which means that 2014 is just about half over.

If that gives you a sinking feeling deep in the pit of your stomach because you haven’t made the progress you dreamed of on January 1st, you’re not alone!

Maybe your marketing message isn’t as effective as you’d like it to be or you’re not getting it out there enough…

You know “the fortune is in the follow-up” but those follow-up tasks seem to fall through the cracks…and take your revenue-generating opportunities along with them.

The fire of the moment seems to get your attention each day and by Friday you realize you’ve been working on random, scattered activities instead of focusing purposefully on what you keep saying you need to do.

And once again – with a deep sigh – you add the same “to-do’s” to your list of tasks for the coming week…

While the little voice inside you says “well…maybe THIS week I’ll make progress”…

But in your heart, you know if you keep doing what you’ve always done – getting distracted, getting caught up in minutiae, and not acting like the CEO of Your Business, Inc. – you’ll wind up feeling even worse when December 31st rolls around and you find yourself saying

“Well, next year will be my year.”

It’s time to say ENOUGH!

Whatever challenges you’re facing, you’re feeling frazzled, frustrated, and frantic as you struggle to move ahead or just try to keep from losing ground.

You’re feeling no joy or passion for your business and you’re “spinning your wheels” – working longer and harder for fewer and fewer results!

This wasn’t what you had in mind when you started your dream biz, was it?

The good news is that the solution to these challenges is simpler than you think!
