How To Profit On Social Media Networks

How To Profit On Social Media Networks


Networking for profits is about generating leads to build your opt-in mail list.

We all know that the money is in the list so I won’t get into that.

What I’m going to talk about in this article is using social media to increase your leads. And how to target the right people.

The best thing about generating leads on a social media site is that you can qualify the lead. You don’t want someone in your network who is an auto mechanic if you’re selling women’s clothes.

Qualify your leads. Be very careful who you interact with. You don’t want to waste time on people who are not interested in what you’re offering. It may be fun but it’s not business.

Your goal should be to find people who are interested in what you’re interested in. If you’re selling shoes there are millions of people on social networks that are interested in shoes. Focus on those people.

Approach those people. Leave comments on their posts and look at who’s in their group so that you can approach them as well.

Let’s begin by asking and answering five critical questions.


What sites are you on?


This is important because you shouldn’t spread yourself too thin. Focus on 3-5 social media networking sites and spend 10 hours or more a week on those sites generating leads

You can join as many sites as you want in order to get your name and website url out there but don’t spend too much time on those other sites. Focus your efforts on a few.


How active are you?


To be successful you must put in time. I mentioned earlier to spend 10 hours a week on your network marketing efforts but I didn’t talk about productivity.

You want to be productive when you’re on the sites. Read people’s posts and comment on them. Get your name in front of people. Build relationships with these people.

Let them talk about themselves and YOU talk about THEM. Don’t talk about yourself or your opportunity until they ask you.


What is on your profile?


Make sure to have content on your profile page. Spend time setting it up. Make it the first thing you do when you join a site. Your profile page is a mini website about you.

Make it so compelling that when people see it they ask you to join them as friends.

If you’re allowed html on your profile page put an opt-in box there. Offer a free report. Give the visitor an incentive for giving you their email address.

Build your list faster with multiple opt-in boxes. Put one on every page you’re allowed.

People visit your profile page to learn something about you! Give it to them. Post links that interest you. Talk about yourself. Upload a picture of you with your dog or child. Tell a story.


How many people do you add each day?


Grow your network and your list daily.

Set a goal of how many people you’re going to add every day. If you add 10 to 30 people a day, you’re going to have a very good, money-making list of people who are interested in what you’re offering.

You did qualify your leads didn’t you?


What are you posting?


Learn about your prospects. Ask questions when you post. Build a relationship first before you try to sell anything. Contribute to the conversation by offering help and giving information freely.

Prospects will judge you by your posts. Bring value by having high quality content and being relevant. Did I say to give away a lot of stuff?

Perform research and read about your topic. Get pictures online and use them on your posts. Pictures attract the eyes.

People truly want to hear what you have to say. You have followers out there. Go get them.
