I get asked all the time Roxanne, How come, “Why I STOPPED Posting My Biz Op On My Facebook Profile?”
You will both laugh and cry when you watch my video below.. I have to laugh now, I have to share now because back then there were A LOT of tears, hurt, frustration and banging my head on the keyboard…
And if I can save you just a little bit of pain, shorten your journey to the Sunny Side of Life… This is why I share.. and I have to ask you…
Are you making this common mistake? Do you post your company link all across your Facebook Timeline, Groups and Social Media?
What worked a few years back doesn’t work the same now. Time has changed, and so have the guidelines of how we run our businesses on Facebook.
It is very common; I used to do that too and so have many others! It is what we were being taught by our leaders. First of all forgive yourself. It is not your fault! It is “just what we do” when we don’t know any other way. It’s not like we have a degree in home based businesses and the “How To” guide for getting started on social media! It is/was a monkey see monkey world out there.
It’s going to be OK! I had to learn the hard way. The hard way of losing A LOT of money, distancing friendships, making family grumpy and finding it hard to make new friends on FB. (Don’t kid ourselves; we know it is our friends, it is in our relationships we build that earn us sales, sign ups and clients)
And I get excited to share my pains, my time on my knees, struggles and banging my head.. Even if you can take in and absorb even one aspect of this, my mission is accomplished!
Catch my video for deeper insights of Why I Stopped Posting My Biz Op On My Page…
Pain Points of WHY I STOPPED …
**** Think about what happens when people see the link – You get excited to think they are going to CLICK IT!! and sometimes they DO!
They click on it, they look around and then they leave… What?! You just lost an opportunity to follow up with them, connect and converse with them, message them because you didn’t even know they clicked and looked! (unless you have a capture page/funnel attached to your link)
We’ve all been told the fortune is in the follow up… So now what?
People are coming, peeking around and leaving!! You are missing out on the questions and answer chat time, the connection, the sales and the opportunity.
**** You know very well that people are just searching and reading reviews on Google. They don’t understand how to use or apply your products, they don’t understand the value or how special it is. They see negative comments from people that didn’t take the product as intended or from a fellow competing company. Having them reach out to the marketers who have positioned themselves on page one, leaders more proficient, and they buy/join them.
**** Buying discounted via Amazon 🙁
**** Buying directly from the Company
**** Clicking on hash tags taking them from your post, having them see more professional or experienced leaders and marketers, buying and joining them. or even looking for better prices elsewhere. Very frustrating indeed!
**** Friends and Family being unappreciative of my “running infomercial” personal profile. Being deleted, “hidden”, no one engaging (no likes/comments/shares) on my posts, crickets on my page.
**** I was having a hard time making new friends, my messages were unanswered. I was being pre-judged of “who I was, what I was all about”. I was unknowingly creating “resistance”. They believed that likely they were going to get “pitched”, so why accept a friend request or answer a message… 🙁
So now what Roxanne? What can I do? I “Get” why you stopped posting your biz op on your page, But I have a great company/product I want to share with the world; Now what?
*** How about branding yourself, apply attraction marketing, growing yourself into a gentle nurturing leader, a beacon of hope that women come to for your goodness daily, and becoming the authority in your market niche, whatever that may be, the list goes on.
*** Begin to share the benefits of the benefits of your products, company ect. Work on creating posts that engage, create feelings, energy, that pull ladies to you! 🙂
*** Learn how to capture the leads for yourself and not allow chance and distractions to take the lead elsewhere!
If this rang your bell, let’s chat! Did you know that I do team trainings? Where I dig into this A LOT deeper! I do discount bundles for my friends! Reach out and send me a message 🙂
See you on the Sunny Side of Life!
