I have registered with several different social sites including Facebook. These are great source for marketing and developing leads for my network marketing business. However, I’ve learned, to effectively use these sites to network you must understand the psychology of attraction. Let me explain.
One thing that amazes me is how often people will send messages to my inbox, or post on my wall something about a great MLM opportunity they have. This is before they have even introduced themselves. I know you know who these people are, it may have even been you at one time.
I have always wondered what they’re expectations are. I mean do they believe I’ll be so excited they thought about me enough to offer this wonder opportunity. Do they think I’ll automatically follow the link to check it out? In fact, I will spend and entire friendfilter app day to open all 112 messages, and follow the link to each of there incredible biz-ops. Yeah right.
The truth is, it’s annoying and you know that’s true. But I have a confession to make, at one time I did the exact same thing. I was so convinced that I had the greatest opportunity available, and if only they would take a look at it they would see it and enroll instantly…NOT!
Here is a question for you, would you ever propose or accept a proposal for marriage on a first date? That’s a rhetorical question because we all know the answer, at least I hope so. Also think about the one liner dudes that go up to a girl and say something corny like, “What’s a girl like you doing in a place like this?” Yeah, real smooth.
Then why would someone use similar methods to attract people to their business. When people are considering getting involved in a serious relationship, consciously or unconsciously they want to know, what does this person have to offer me? How can they enhance my life?
Social networking online is no different. When developing a business relationship a prospect needs to see that you have something to offer them, something of value that will benefit them. I don’t just mean some type of vague theories, hype, or inspirational thoughts. It needs to be something specific, something with substance they can use.
Like information that can help their business. For example:
o Free software that can help them market there business better?
o A web site or a forum that has great information related to there business.
o Techniques you have found successful in building your business…etc.
I think you get the point. If you use attraction marketing and your consistent, you won’t have to send annoying messages, people will view you as a leader and seek you out to find out more about your business.
