Why Posting Buy My Tool Or Join My Ground Floor Opportunity Links On Facebook “WILL NEVER WORK”

March 3, 2012 in MAGAZINE, Network Marketing Tips

    Imagine this, you’re going to a football game like this, and you start screaming at the top of your lungs trying to get the attention of the TV camera.  You’re wearing the same yellow color that everyone else is wearing.  Do you think you will be noticed?

    The answer is hell no.  This leads me to what I want to talk about today.  Sharing links of your opportunity in social media is something that never works, and will never work.  Here’s why; it’s like trying to fit in with the crowd in the stadium, and screaming at the top of your lungs for someone to buy from you, or join your opportunity.

    In the media revolution days with TV, radio, and newspaper ads, this could have worked.  But now people just ignore you when you shout at them to buy from you.    People listen to those individuals they know, like, and trust.

    I wanted to prove my point so I created some links to different sales pages, put some analytics on them to track the amount of visitors, and the amount of products we sold.  I posted the link over 325 times on different Facebook groups, and fan pages.  Out of 325 links I posted, I was able to track four visitors, and no sales.  I could continue to test, but I don’t think the numbers are going to change.  If you want to create results in your business, here are a few things you can start doing right now on social media, rather than posting spammy type links for people to buy from you.

    Rather than posting opportunity links, why not post an article link educating your audience on four business ideas that requires little to no investment, and how they can determine if it’s for them or not.

    Rather than posting a bunch of spam type links on Facebook groups and fan pages, why not create your own group or fan page.  Create a fan base through cheap ads, educate them, and then tell them what to do next.  Create a capture page on your Facebook fan page that could drive them onto your list.   Here are a few resources you can use to create capture pages on Facebook.

    Five Minute Fanpage


    Then take that online list, and bring it offline by creating meet-up events to take the relationship building process to the next level.  If you think you are going to build a sustainable business with people you never meet, or build a relationship with, then you won’t be in business for too long.

    Me personally, I’m going to go into all of my groups, and fan pages, and delete all of those useless, and non-value driven links that just defeats the purpose of creating a group or fanpage.  If you have a group or fanpage with the same problem, I suggest you do the same thing because it’s driving your audience away.
