Online vs. In Person Prospecting

QandAsmallI’ve had many people ask me how online marketing differs from in person marketing.  The short answer…

It doesn’t!

Why would I say that?  Just like in person, when you are using social spaces online to prospect (market your business), you are dealing with real people.  Many people mistakenly think that they should conduct themselves differently online than the do offline.  That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Many times in my trainings, I’ve said “If you wouldn’t say or do it offline, don’t say or do it online”.  The next time you feel the need to scream at everyone you know on social spaces about your wonderful business, STOP!!  THINK!!  Ask yourself…would I do or say this in person?

Shouting about your business online is like jumping on a table in the middle of a party and yelling about your business.  However, if you set up your profile properly, you can be the interesting person who everyone wants to ask about their business.  People will come to you and ask you to tell them more if they like what you’ve set up on your profiles.

This is why a clear, concise, “About Me” statement on your cover photo is so important.  It’s also important that you learn how to properly repost photos so you are not sending people to the sites of other reps when you post them.  There are many, many ways you can go about setting up your profile so when you do go out (on social spaces) and socialize, people will come look to find out who you are and what you do.

 

 

I’ve Been Watching You

I spent a few hours today with one of my Elite Coaching Clients.  During these sessions, I generally hook to my client’s computer and walk her through exactly where to go, what to day and what to do on social spaces.  We also look at what others are doing and find examples of what is NOT working.

Today we found quite a few of you on facebook.  We looked at your status updates and looked at the interaction you are getting.

I was shocked at how many of you are STILL spinning your wheels and trying to work on facebook.  You are posting  quotes and business pitches and cutesy photos.  But…the only ones who are “liking” and commenting on your status updates are others who are in your business.  You have no prospects interacting with you.  You have no “real” people interacting with you.

While it’s nice to keep in touch with those in your business and it’s nice that they like your stuff, that does NOT make you any money!!  That means you are just existing on facebook, but it’s doing you absolutely NO GOOD.

Why?  Why are you still spinning your wheels when everything you’ve done up to this point has been unsuccessful?  Why are you wasting your time?

Are you ready yet?  Are you ready to stop doing what doesn’t work and start doing what does?  Come join us for the New Year Group Coaching.  It’s not too late.  Pay what you can afford.  See what others are saying about the course so far here.
