Are You Struggling To Use Facebook to Grow Your Business?

Not seeing the results that you want?

Are you asking yourself the right questions?

The answers to most problems you are having are in the quality of the questions you are asking.

Here are the top 5 questions that you should be asking when you are marketing your business on Facebook and why they are important.

1. What is the best way to drive interactions on my Facebook page?

Content, Content, and more Content. Yes, Content is KING! and the most effective way to drive interactions on your Facebook page is by creating and sharing fresh and unique content on a consistent basis. With this content it will allow your followers to start discussions around the content that you share. Don’t just blast your Facebook page with self-promotional materials, but post content that is valuable to the your fans and community. This will not only engage them, but it will encourage them to share your content with others.

2. How often should I be replying to fans?

Well let me ask this question another way… How often would you reply to customers that call into your support center or help desk?
Answer: Stay in Touch Constantly! Yes. That’s right! Respond to fans and people who “like” your company just like you would your current customers that call into your help desk. Why would you act any differently? If they have a question or a request, spend the time to address these. Although this can be very time-consuming activity, it will help you increase brand awareness and drive home the message that you care about your customers and fans a like. From this, the word will get out about you and your business.

3. Are using images proven to be more effective than just using words on Facebook pages?

When it comes to using Facebook… Images MATTER! Using images and photos on Facebook is critical to attracting the attention of others. Messages presented in a visual way are much the most effective when utilizing a social media marketing channel like Facebook. There has never been a time where businesses can leverage that than now. Just the simple act of letting people tag, like, and share your photos can turn into huge exposure for your business.

4. How often should I post promotional content on my Facebook page?

Hint… No one likes to be sold too and everyone likes to be sold to. Get it? When we are considering posting promotional content on our Facebook page, we need to understand this idea. It all comes down to message to market match. If you know the message that your market wants to hear, then you never will be actually selling at them through your promotions, you will be marketing to them right where they are at. At the same time, always consider adding value in everything that you offer. Whether it is a blog post, video, audio… adding into the life of your customers and prospects through value is the key to your success when posting content on your Facebook page.

5. Is there any value to creating and using Facebook groups?

Yes, at the right time, for the right reason, and with the right audience of people. This helps to build the reputation of yourself and your business by creating an intimate setting for connecting with them. Facebook groups allow you to demonstrate your expertise in a specific area. As you build relationships with others in the same field, you can increase your position and gain brand recognition. Make sure you have the right people in the group to make this happen.

So there you have it. The Top 5 Questions that you should be asking to have success marketing your business on Facebook.

5 Most Common Mistakes In Affiliate Marketing

0

Is affiliate marketing part of your business?

It is a key to success of most of the top earners in the online world and a great piece to add to the mix. Just think about it… You can get paid for offering someones valuable products to your customers. They’re going to buy it from someone. Why not you?

But there are some pitfalls that you need to be aware of and try to avoid.

Here are the 5 most common ones that plague most people who fail at affiliate marketing:

1. Do not promote an affiliate product that you have no interest in.
This one is simple. If you don’t have an interest in a product or service, it is likely that your customers do not also. So adding this to your marketing program will result in no sales or income. Even worse, it could confuse some of your customers and have them not buy from you ever again.

2. Not researching the affiliate program first.
Pain and simple, do your due diligence and homework on a product or service before you start to promote it. Here are some must ask questions that you need to consider: Who created it? Who else is promoting it? What is their history of creating great products? What is their reputation in the market place? Will associating myself with this product or service enhance my customers lives when they purchase it from me?

3. Going with an affiliate with bad commission structures.
Make sure you look at the commission structures. Most affiliate programs offer between 20 – 40% commissions, with the average being 30%. Also, make sure you are clear on when you will get paid. Some are instant, others are within a couple of months based on their refund policy. Commission structure aside, always make sure that what you are offering to your customers will add value to them.

4. Not researching the product.
Do not promote a product unless you have done your research and purchased or reviewed them. Having reviewed a product that you believe in will allow you to make a stronger marketing campaign for it and hence get greater results in sales when you offer it to your customers.

5. Do not overtax yourself.
Do not spend all of your time in your business promoting other peoples products. This can be a great way to get started, but make sure that in your plan you start to move towards creating your own products and adding other services into the mix for your customers that will generate different income streams.

Avoiding these mistakes will all you to create a successful affiliate marketing income stream to your business. Make sure that your customer comes first and that you consider all things so that what you are offering adds value to them and your bottom line. The more that people trust you and the products you are promoting, the more likely they are to buy from you.

3 Keys To Moving People Into Action!

0

Do you know what it takes to move people into action and make a decision?

Have you every had a challenge with people taking action or making a decision to join your business?

Maybe your are offering them a product or service that you know will help them out, but they sit their on the fence and don’t take action!

Sound familiar?

If you have been marketing products and/or building a business for any period of time, then you maybe familiar with these. But if you are just getting started, these keys can help unlock the success that you are looking for within your sales funnel and cycle.

It has been said, that the business of network marketing is one of a ‘volonteer army’

What I mean by that is that the people you partner with in your business have to self-driven and want to succeed in the opportunity that is before them. If you try to convince them or persuade them into doing things that they don’t want to do for themselves, then when things don’t work out, they will blame you, the industry, and the company for their failure. Your job is to just allow people to make a decision to take action.

So…

Here are 3 key psychological factors that will move anyone into immediate action:

1. Give Them A Deadline

Giving someone a deadline gives them a reason to move forward. For most people, without a reason to take action now or soon they will most likely not take action at all. It is important to give a well defined deadline to let them know that they might not have time in the future to take action and the time to take action is NOW!

It is fundamental human nature that people will wait until the best conditions or when the timing is right to take action. By giving deadlines, you take that choice and way of thinking away from them.

2. Limit Their Options

When people have too many things to choose from, it limits their ability to decide what they really want. Confusion usually sets in, and then it moves to frustration in some cases, and ultimately results in no decision or action being taken at all. What happens in this case is that most people do not want to be seen ask making a ‘wrong’ or ‘bad’ decision. Therefore, fewer choices results in faction decision and moving into action.

3. The Law of Inertia

Has someone every told you… “Objects in motion stay in motion”?

Well guess what? The same applies to people too!!!

Let me explain…

When people are in the mall they are most likely in the ‘buying mode’ and usually end up walking out of the mall with more than they went in for!

Sound familiar?

I know I can relate.

Now I know that this sounds like a simple example, but the point is that people that buy tend to continue to buy. If they buy from you once, they will most likely buy from you again. How does it get any better than this? They usually continue to buy until one of two things happen… 1. they run out of money or 2. they run out of time. Believe it or not, that is how most people work and why most people suffer and never make any money in the home business industry.

There you have it.

The 3 keys to moving people into action that will create more sales for your business.

How does it get any better than this?

Now take a look at your sales funnels and if you are not seeing the results that you are looking for, one of these 3 keys may be missing in the process. Find those holes and adjust them for more sales and success in your home business.

5 Simple Tips For Article Marketing Success!

Do you know how to leverage article marketing to generate FREE Traffic and Leads for your home business?

Have you heard of Article Marketing?

If so, have you used it as a tool to generate Free traffic and leads for your home business?

If you have heard of article marketing or not, here are 5 simple tips to have success using this method of FREE traffic and lead generation.

First, let’s briefly discuss what article marketing is…

Basically it’s a FREE way of advertising, where businesses write short articles related to their respective industry. There are hundreds of article submission sites and writing articles can increase your Natural or Organic Search Engine rank for your site on Google, Yahoo, or Bing.

Pretty simple stuff.

How does it get better than this?

Alright, here are 5 simple tips to get you started with article marketing…

1. The Article Title

This is the most important part of the article. Consider it like a headline that is used to grab peoples attention to decide whether to read your article of not. When choosing your title, people want to know what the top 7 or 5 things are. Odd numbers work best! Use 101 ways not 100 ways. One exception is a top 10 list. People are always searching for more information and giving them a quick list of facts is always a good way to keep them reading. Check out the title of this post… “5 Simple Tips For Article Marketing Success!”

2. The Summary
Every Article has a section for a Summary also know as a teaser. This is the second most important part of your article besides the title, because it will allow people to decide whether to read the rest or not. When writing an article, use a 2 -5 line Teaser that will peak the interest of people that are looking for your topic. One of the best things to do is ask a question and promise the answer within the article itself.

3. The Article Body

You may want to create your main copy of your Article in word or some other editor and paste that article in this area. The article should be short and to the point, 250 at the least and 500 words at most. Make sure that it is something that will maintain your readers interest. If you choose something like the 5 ways to _________ , then list those 5 things and give a short summary on each. Make sure it is easy on the eyes, interesting and compelling. Around 400 words is best. If it goes longer, then you should consider splitting it into two articles. This is good as it will increase traffic too! Your main topic should include things like advice, product or business reviews, or ways to do something.

4. Spell Checking

Always Always Always check your spelling!!! Did I say ALWAYS… before you submit your article, typing a great article with misspelled words will only ruin your reputation and take away the positioning of you as the Expert in your field. Yes, writing quality articles that get traffic will increase traffic to your site will position you as an expert in your field. What else is possible?

5. The 3 Biggest Article Writing Mistakes

1. You don’t start!!! Yes, most people don’t start writing articles. Remember, you do not have to write a masterpiece, you just need to start writing and get them out there. Start today!

2. Writing without giving value or helping the reader to accomplish something. Everything you write
should have a call to action in it, that allows your reader to not only be informed about what you are
sharing, but also something they can do to implement and take action on it.

3. Sharing too much! You need the reader to have a reason to visit your site. If you give them all the
information in the article, then they will just read it and go on their way. Remember, the purpose of
article marketing is to drive people to your site and generate leads… RIGHT? You provide people with
a link to your site so that you can get free traffic, this information is provided in what is called a
resource box.

So there you have it.

Are You A Buying Addict?

0

If you aren’t having success in your business, it’s probably because you’re a buying addict!

Is this the case for you, as it is for most people?

If so, don’t worry.

Your not alone.

Most people have this addiction and it’s not just in the network marketing industry.

It’s everywhere.

Just look around…

But I have to tell you, it’s not your fault.

There is hope for a better way.

Before I get to that.

Let me explain what I mean when I say “Buying Addict”

Most people have grown up and been raised to go to school, get a job, make money, and then buy stuff with the money you make (and the money you don’t make). These people are in the mode of ‘buying’ and as my mentor The GREAT Diane Hochman always says… “Spends all their time on the wrong side of the cash register.” This is the cycle of the average person. Work, make money, spend money, work some more, make money, spend money… and the cycle continues.

Now as I mentioned, there is another way.

They cycle can be broken.

Don’t get me wrong.

Buying things is not all bad.

In fact, most of the top people in the industry invest a lot in their education and training.

Yep, they buy a lot of stuff!

You could even say that they are buying addicts also.

But what they do that most of the other people who have not achieved success yet don’t is they are SELLING Addicts too!

This is the place that you need to get to in order to have success in your business.

You have to spend more time on the other side of the cash register selling more that you buy. It’s the only way that you can make a profit and have a successful business.

So what keeps most people back from being addicted to selling?

Here are a couple of things that I have noticed along my journey…

1. They have never been taught to be sellers. Remember the cycle I spoke about that turns people into buying addicts?

2. Our society and culture does not support having too many sellers. Just look around at how things are, you can see it.

So how can you move from being a buying addict to also being a selling addict too?

It really isn’t that difficult.

In fact, it doesn’t really need to involve selling at all.

Come join my team and I as we transform ourselves into the people we need to become to have a successful business.

Discover how you can become a selling addict too!

How Are You Running Your Business?

Are You Running Your Business Like A Business?

When looking at most people who start a home business, there are two distinct states that they operate from.

Do you know what they are?

They may be obvious to some, but most people live blind to this idea even though they are functioning from this point of action. You may even be one of these people. Don’t worry if you are. It’s not your fault and you can choose to change and take a new path.

Have you figured it out yet?

Well, here they are…

1. Running your business as a business.

OR

2. Running your business like a hobby.

So you may be asking yourself what’s the difference?

Here it is…

Running a business as a business has the potential to make you money.

But having a hobby costs you money.

Yes, you heard it right… having a hobby costs most people money.

Take a look at your business and ask yourself…

What mode am I operating my business from?

If you are working from the mode of hobby, no worries, It’s not your fault, and there is hope to turn things around.

Here is what you can do.

Take a good hard look at you hobby run business and ask yourself the following question…

What is it going to take to convert my business from a hobby to a profitable business?

Let me say that again…

A Profitable Business.

You may find when you ask this question that you discover that the business you are in is not the right one for you. If that’s the case, make a business decision to move on and do something else.

Whatever you do, keep your hobbies out of your business.

Have you experienced this in your business before?

The Most Important Tool For Your Online Business!

0

Do you know what the most important tool for your online business is?

When starting out to build your business online, there is only one tool that you must have.

Do you know what it is?

Well, I’ll tell you what it’s not…

It’s not a blog,

not a website,

not a fancy automated thingy that gets you 100s of friends on Facebook and 1000s of followers on Twitter and then let’s you automagically spam them with updates every hour.

It’s not any of them.

Have you guessed what it is yet?

It is the foundation of your business.

Here is it…

It is an autoresponder.

Yep, that’s it.

Now you are probably thinking, don’t I need a blog or a website to use an autoresponder?

Don’t I need a place for people to opt-in?

Well actually you don’t.

For most autoresponders, like the one I use called Aweber, you can setup an email address and ask people to send you an email to get on your list.

Yes, you can start building your list before your pretty looking blog is setup, or you even have captures pages and other fancy Internet Marketing stuff, using simple emails.

How does it get any better than this.

So check your current autoresponder and see if they have the feature to allow people to email you and get on your list. Start using it now to grow your list.

If you don’t, I recommend you check out the one I use. It’s called Aweber. You can grab yourself a 30 day trial for $1 and take if for a test drive it HERE! (And yes it is an affiliate link, so if you get it through me then I will get enough to take my wife and myself for a tea once a month 🙂 ).

Once you have this setup, then for everyone new person you talk to ask, “Hey are you on my newsletter list?” If they say no, then send them the email address and tell them to sign up.

Simple, RIGHT?

The fortune in any business is in building the list of customers.

Start building yours today.

To your massive success!

The GREAT Edward here,

Happy Tuesday!

Last week on Share Your DREAM Friday I had the privilege of
having

Special Guest Dreamer Staci Gauny Co-Founder of TribePro

sharing her story and dream of creating this community and tool
that is adding massive value to all who are part of it.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it, check it out here on ShareYourDREAMFriday.com

As you may or may not know, I have been working with Tribe Syndication ever since I started blogging back in January 2010. I have been part of many tribes as a participant, leader, and even worked with an amazing group of people over at TSAMastery.com to create a community a thriving community of people who are working together for the success of each other. It has been a great ride.

My philosophy about a Tribe is that it must offer two key things.
Community and Leverage!

If you are in a tribe and one of these or both of these things are missing…

then it’s time to move on.

So why is Community and Leverage so important?

Let me share with you…

Community is important because everything in life and business is about Relationships and your ability to create them and foster them for the betterment of each other. Without the ability to build Relationships with people within a safe and fun Community, then you will not have success.

Leverage is important because if a group of people together is better than someone on their own. When a large group of people join in a community for a common purpose and goal, then there is massive leverage that happens.

TribePro has the ingredients for both of these things and is why when my partner and colleague The GREAT Diane Hochman said I MUST check this out TribePro thing… I knew as soon as I saw what Staci and her husband Ronnie had put together all the key ingredients for a successful tribe where there (and then some)!

So I jumped right in and started using it right away!

Now let me show you some of the results that I have gotten within the first week of using the TribePro System…

1) My daily blog traffic doubled within the first week of using it.

2) EXPOSURE of my content to the 2100+ members (and growing) of the Community
3) resulted in 100+ followers and
4) more than 30% of them syndicating my content automatically

In fact, one piece of content was shared to 1000 sites within minutes of being submitted.

TribePro Results

Is that AWESOME or what?

Connections and LEADS have been pouring in on a daily basis.

These are just what has happened in the last few weeks.

People are pouring in on a daily basis and major Online Marketers are recommending this to their communities.

How does it get any better than this?

So, if you are looking for More TRAFFIC, LEADS, EXPOSURE, and a Community with great Leverage…

then you have to check out TribePro.com for Free!
