Facebook Still Works For Direct Sales Marketing
Facebook is Still Your Number One Social Media Platform for Direct Sales
I’m deviating a little from the topic I have been so focused on lately which is mindset, and there is a reason.
When I started this series, I mentioned BE, DO and HAVE as the key components to success in your Network Marketing business. We have covered much of the BE – who do you want to BE in network marketing? Who do you want to BE in life? Where is your business ultimately going to take you, beyond the STUFF and process of building?
As we begin to move into HOW, things should be showing up for you. Go back and listen to the show archives, shows, 264-267 and I’ll have links in the shown notes.
Get your mindset straight on who you want to BE and what we are becoming. As you do this, your mind is going to begin to give you downloads on what you will DO to create this.
Pay attention to this.
Facebook and Social Media will be a big part of this, most likely. And Facebook really expands your ability to attract and allow the right people into your business who are aligned with you, your mission and your goals.
It’s universal law and principal and it must happen.
I’ve shared my story of taking my business online before. The internet fell into place for me because I had become very aligned with my vision for my life and who I wanted to become. But, I was struggling with making it happen.
I stayed committed though and things began showing up.
I started learning the internet. Why? Because I was being guided to do this.
Today, I am being guided to build my business through my Facebook business page, and Facebook Live, Youtube, my Blog and even some offline networking and in home events.
And, I am paying attention.
So, let’s focus on Facebook.
It’s dominated by women, FYI, which of course is perfect for me and my business. Over 1 billion daily active users. Does that sound dead to you?
EVERY single day, someone in your exact target audience, who may have been saying no yesterday is saying YES today. Why? Something changed in their life. Downsized, death in the family, illness, birth, relocation, frustration, whatever. It’s happened.
When you stay consistent on Facebook, sharing your message and your vision, you will attract those right people to you!

Here are some ways to use Facebook to attract your right prospects.
First, create a Facebook business page. This is your “store” on Facebook and the first and easiest place to take people to learn more about you and what you do. Brand yourself and your company and create engaging content and videos. Create custom photo albums that you can easily guide a prospect to, online or offline, to learn more and share your products. And, the business.
Create a Facebook group for customers and would be customers. Teach, entertain and educate. Notice I didn’t say sell. This is the best way to sell. People will buy when they are given a solid reason. Build trust through education and entertainment.
Never EVER add someone to a group without their permission. Ask them first and if they say yes, add them. Or give them the link directly after you ask and they say yes.
Videos are an awesome way to do this and the internet, and facebook love video. Especially live video. Tweet me or message me if you want to see how I am using this in my own business.
Through your business page and groups you can host events, and events are a great way to expand your message even further.
Did you know that events you host on a Facebook business page get picked up by Google? Think about powerful keywords when you do this and make it count!
What about your personal profile or Timeline? Should you be sharing there?
YES, but in a careful and well played way!
Post selfies and photos of your family and friends using your products. Make the text that accompanies these fun and light hearted, and not a sales pitch.
Give a call to action in the text area that takes them to a VIP group or your Facebook Business Page.
Use the 80/20 rule, with only 20% of your content at the MOST about your business.
Engage and reach out to those who comment and like, but do it privately. You can comment back or like when they comment, but don’t pitch them publicly.
I cover how to do this in depth in my Facebook for Direct Sales guide.
So, you may be asking, do you need all three? A personal profile, a business page and a group?
YES, and they all serve their own purpose and give you ultimately many ways for multiple exposure.
