What about an Update on the Social Media Program? My 30 Day Simple Network Marketing Guide Day 13

Apart from the importance of Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In and YouTube they say that Google + and Google Hangouts are now also developing as a very important part of Social Media.

There was a presentation organised on Google Hangout recently and confirmed the power of Google+ The subject was an update on Social Media.

How to sell anything online such as affiliate membership, a network business or a traditional business.

Traffic to your website (a lead capture page) was highlighted to capture people’s details with their name and email address and to encourage them to do so by offering them a free gift. Suppose you are promoting a network marketing business such as Empower Network you could offer a free gift like the actual sales video or go to their main website where a 6 day boot camp training on Empower Network is available.

When a person clicks on the free offer he/she would join the list in your autoresponder (Recommended source either Aweber or Get Response – my personal choice is Aweber)

Lots of people talk about autoresponders and how you can use them to grow your business online. But what actually is an autoresponder? “Quite simply, it’s a piece of software that enables you to send emails to people automatically. This doesn’t mean that it writes the emails for you and it doesn’t involve spam or sending unsolicited email. What it means is that you set up a sequence of prewritten emails that are sent out to prospects on your database at regular intervals.” Thus you are able to build a relationship and eventually people will get to know, like and trust you AND will buy from you.

People form different buying cycles and become repeat buyers – they may start buying the basic affiliate membership of Empower Network and then the Inner Circle membership which lead onto other products because they are happy with you by giving them a good service and great satisfaction.

However, this is not just about joining a list but is all about building a relationship. So you could also send emails to them them regularly or by means of social media – Facebook, Twitter etc. Then they become warm or even hot prospects for the future. This is all about marketing and this is often well worth the effort.

It is obvious that you must have visitors who leave their names and email addresses thus creating leads in your autoresponder but if they don’t then you won’t make any money!

Networking marketing is a completely different way of doing business compared with the traditional way. If you change or lose your job OR your traditional business fails then in many cases these circumstances create opportunities for you to think about network marketing – you hear of people say ” When I was made redundant it was the best thing that ever happened to me – it made me think that there is a better way.”

More and more people are working from home and the world of network marketing is opening up to them by searching on Google, reading papers and magazines but often simply by word of mouth. Whichever way you hear of these opportunities there is no doubt that personal recommendation from a trusted and respected friend is a very good source of reference. Still at the end of the day it is up to you to make a choice.

So where do you go from here? In the next post you will be given a strategy which will show you a way forward to develop your network marketing business.

    Hi John

    I wasn’t sure where you were going at first in this post, you covered so many points!

    Yes Google Plus with the hangout service I am sure will equal or better Facebook given time….. It is what Google does….. Start a competitive service, then goes better, bigger, and gives more…. Starts to dominate the market…. Then slip in all the adverts.

    Talking about creating mailing lists, and a seriously automatically messages to build a relationship with someone, I have this cautionary tale….

    I joined someone’s list, and they tried the relationship marketing approach to SELL…

    They asked questions, like how is it going, how is business etc…

    Then they asked a question that I guess I answered inappropriate completely different way to the norm….

    And their reply to this obviously did not fit… I had rumbled him, so I tested it…

    He asked, So what has been hour biggest challenge this week?

    Killing dragons….

    And what has been hour biggest problem in doing that this week?

    My light sabre doesn’t work…. It maybe the battery…..

    And the reply was something going like this….

    You know Jon, I have bad several people say this this week, it’s a common problem…. I have a course there you might be interested in,

    For this reason, I am always suspicious of automation responder tricks, and often test if a human reads the replies!

  4. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog
    that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too
    few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
