The Untold Secrets of Facebook Part 2By
I think we can all say that Facebook is one of the most powerful social sites out right now. Having more people than some small countries, I would have to admit that is pretty big. You have so much potential to build relationships with people, you might never meet, but I see a lot of people treating as if it were a swap meet sale. Everybody wants to sell you something, and never even take the time to get to know you. I think this is a big mistake that most people are making out there right now. Facebook could be one of the best tools out there to get your message across, if you do it properly.
First thing you don’t want to do is have a logo of your company in the profile picture. I love Todd Falcone site of Buzzy Boxer, who said its Facebook, Not Logobook. He is right; people want to see your face and who they are doing business with, not the picture of your company’s logo, or product.
Also if you are blasting your business all over your page, and telling people what your company is and thinking that will get you exposure, it won’t. Also if people would be interested in it, they will take your company name put into Google, and see somebody with a site made for it already, and ended up signing with them, because they have a better presence then you did. Either way it’s a bad way to attract people to your opportunity.
I think this one is the worst of all, and that is taking a video, presentation, or a conference call number and tagging into some of the bigger people in the industry, just hoping they will join your company or deal. Believe me if you are doing that, you will get deleted as friend faster, then having them signup in your deal. That is bad in general, and I would never do that. Those people might be just nice of enough to give you a couple minutes of their time, and that could help you turn your business around if it’s not going well.
Last thing I will say, if people see you doing these things, do you think they are thinking to themselves, is this person doing good or bad in their business? I guarantee you; they are thinking this person is not doing well, and if they like your business, they will find somebody on Google who is doing well, and has their stuff together.
I hope this helps people, I really want to see everyone do well in this industry, and there is so many things we can do to make things better for all of us. Remember building a relationship with someone online, and getting to know them, will get a lot further then trying to sell them something the first time you meet them.
