Let’s join some groups & make new friends!

So today we’re going to widen your net by starting to build your social community networks. It’s SUPER SIMPLE and it’s VITAL towards the success of your business!


Most people tend to not think outside of their local town when they start thinking about building their team. They think that they need to be able to meet the person over a coffee to be able to chat about their business opportunity. Yes that’s all very nice and a bonus if you get a local team but some people maybe just want to focus on building a team online, and it’s exactly how I started and made it to the top levels within 12 months. Building a community online and supporting them via various tools like online member sites, Facebook, email, phone calls, webinar and telephone conferences. I simply used ‘Attraction Marketing’.

So let’s think about the world of social media and how wide your reach really is and how wide you can cast that net to catch a few fish. There is a big wide ocean out there for you to explore full of potential people looking for something different to add to their lives, maybe just for some pocket money or a complete lifestyle change or some extra cash to help with month end bills or debts until payday.

What was your why? could anyone else be like you and share the same why?

Lets hit Facebook

Firstly (if you are on Facebook) you need to create a business page (your new shop window) to promote your business and to promote yourself as a knowledgeable seller and party planner. If you’re a team builder as your new members will also be copying what you do too and see how they should be looking professional also!

Now consider the length of your Facebook name – are you going to be putting this on business cards? Will it fit? Is it easy to remember? Is it professional? use the same name on all your social platforms and use the same profile photo – this is your personal branding and makes you stand out and look professional even more.

Another thing you could also consider is creating your own personal Facebook group and one that interest you(and your ideal customer) start an interest group. I have a ‘Wedding in Cumbria’ group which now has over 2000 members, at the time of creating the group my ideal customers were brides who needed extra cash to pay for  their wedding extras (like I needed too when I started my own network marketing business up, I was someone else’s ideal customer!) now I have this group I can add ‘targeted posts’ and I don’t have to worry about admin refusing it or losing out on sales and team members to other reps advertising. No direct sales and network marketing reps are allowed in, so I can happily get to work on building relationships!

I also have a Blog, Twitter, YouTube channel, Pinterest, Snapchat and Instagram account, but I NEVER use these as pushy sales channels and spam people with constant posts saying ‘buy my product’. I use my own pictures and share my daily life. I entwine it all together and add a product when it won’t look ikky, but part of my life.

You also should now create a VIP group for customers, people who love your products so they can share excitement about offers coming up. You should never add random people to your group without asking them. People really lose confidence & trust in you, you’re seen to just add people as friends, to sell to them – it’s about building relationships first!!

You want people to be in your group who want to be in and potentially purchase from you.

Example of adding people who are NOT your ideal customer… someone added me to their Ann Summers group without asking and straight after they added me as a friend on Facebook. I was like whattttt!!! I’m 43, not 23, and them days no longer interest me (well the dressing up a bit and the gadgets!)
I was not that persons ideal customer, they had not even asked me to join. So that didn’t help build up that relationship and we’re swiftly un-friended!

Using your Personal Facebook Profile

Google ATTRACTION MARKETING – This is what it’s all about, creating the FOMO (fear of missing out). You should be sharing motivation, inspiration and posts about your lifestyle, how amazing your business treats you every month, how you can work your business around your other commitments, how you’re so pleased you started your opportunity.
Share tips, photos and do team shout-outs – this is what will get someone ‘who will be watching you’ to pluck up the courage and ask to join your team or buy a product!

I also like to ask a couple of times a month if any of my friends would like to be a ‘Fragrance Angel’, who want’s to earn some extra money in their spare time by showing their work colleagues and friends some fragrance samples. For every 5 bottles, they get orders for I will give them a 50ml Pure fragrance for free. Lots of friends love this option. Could you use this idea in your business?

The more friendships you make and add, the bigger your net becomes and more people will see you and your successful business and products!

Facebook Rules:
You sign up too Facebook to use it for everything personal, it’s against the terms of use you authorised when you first joined Facebook to run a business from your personal page, therefore – please be professional and mindful that you risk your account being closed down, numerous times in Facebook jail if you take the mick with it and people will report you for spamming if you constantly post about your business! SHARE a post from your business page to your personal profile, that’s totally fine and why you need to be using your Facebook business page more, and you can still share your behind the scenes on your personal profile, you’re not selling, but sharing your daily life! Time to get clever and building relationships.
