Social Networking is a great way to build relationships with people and generate leads for your business. Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter are some of the popular sites you can start with. Facebook is increasing in popularity and has become the No.1 networking site ahead of MySpace. Make sure you include Facebook marketing in your online campaign.
The important thing is to keep your profile simple. To learn about how to create your account, log on to Facebook. Here I will tell you how to leverage your profile for the best results. Remember that your priority is not to promote your business but to build relationships with people. When you do this, the business will take care of itself. Similarly, you need to learn about people and not their business.
The basic thing is to have great content. It is said that content is king on the internet. You must write and give meaningful information to people and request them to share their views on it. You must also share your views on other people’s profiles and notes. Always be positive since it is contagious. A positive attitude attracts winners to you.
I invite you to see my profile on Facebook – Angela Kay Giles. Request me to be your friend since I really want to know more about you. On my profile, I have not advertised anything about my business. It is only mentioned toward the end. But I have taken care to write about myself, my friends, family and everyone who is important to me. I have written about what excites me and what my passion is.
If you want to generate prospects from Facebook marketing, you need to invite people to be your friends. I use a friend adder. There are several of them that you can choose from depending on your budget. This saves me time and I don’t need to spam all over Facebook. What I do is collect friend ids from a group in the same niche as I am and invite them to be a friend. I do 50 friend requests per day. Anything more and Facebook might shutdown my account. To multiply my efforts, I create several Facebook accounts with a similar profile. Then I add 50 friends on each of them each day.
Facebook marketing can be done with other things like social ads, events, messages, and feeds. You need to use your grey cells and figure out what will work.
