As I mentioned in the previous blog, often your upline wants you to bring them leads that they will call with you, they say they will help you, but if you don't have leads for them...well they don't seem to be around...
...And when you do find leads, what happens if your upline isn't there to answer the questions that the leads may have?
Well, let's start with finding leads in the first place.
This may not be an easy task for many reasons:
1. There are many people who aren't interested in what you have to offer.
2. They don't want to be bothered.
3. They are too busy.
4. They don't have the money to join.
5. They don't trust the business or you for that matter.
...and the list goes on...
Anyhow, where are the people that might be interested? They can be found online, but it takes some work, they will not just come to you...you must go to them.
So, what I suggest is first building your lists online. You need to have somewhat of a following online in order to even be noticed. Getting noticed by your followers is another issue that we will discuss next.
But first let's build a following...
Let's start with Twitter and Facebook. They are by far the first most important networking sites to be on. There are many hidden ones where you can find network marketers, but starting out...begin at Twitter and Facebook.
This blog will focus on Twitter and Facebook will be discussed in the next blog.
1. Twitter Following:
Add, add and add more people. To do this just click on the square with the plus sign on the far right. Keep adding... I suggest adding people that are in network marketing already and are known in the industry. This makes you appear to also be an avid network marketer with many friends in the industry. Try adding people who may seem interested in what you are offering as well, but in general just keep adding people. What will happen is, you will start being noticed on your "following" and "follower'" pages and then their followers will start adding you too. This helps your list to grow and grow...
But don't think that 1,000, 2,000 or even 5,000 people is a large list; there are lists out there of over 10,000 and even 20,000 people for that matter...so keep adding people daily. The daily limit of Twitter is about 250.
2. Twitter Retweets:Retweeting on Twitter is a great way to build a following also. This gets you 'out there' and noticed by more people than you realize. When you retweet and post something that you like or that you find interesting, others may feel the same way and begin to notice you. By getting noticed this will also increase your followers, as people will continue to add you.
To Retweet, you can copy and paste the phrase you want to Retweet, but be sure to put 'RT' before the name of the person's 'tweet'.
For example: RT @ Jillblue (Retweet goes here...)
So when you are busy adding people on Twitter, people are also busy adding you, thus increasing those you are "following" and those who are following you, your "followers".
You could try acting as a leader in the industry, build your own sites and help others, but there are only a few real 'gurus' in the industry and the competition is getting tough out there, not to scare you...lol.
It is suggested to have your own blog and get it out there as much as possible. This will also get you noticed. Blogging will be featured in another blog of mine...
I do agree with trying to stand out online and be yourself and really the only way to standout, since so many things have been done online is to BE YOURSELF!
Think about what is unique about you...what makes you, YOU?
