I used to do a 100% of my recruiting for network marketing on Facebook and MySpace before it imploded. I realized recently that I have really gotten away from it for a few years now. It was so powerful a few years ago it wasn’t uncommon for me to sponsor 15 to 20 people per month by just using social media mainly Facebook. So today, I want to share with you some tips on how to get people interested in your business via Facebook. I know these tips still work as I tested them last month and sponsored a few people using some of these tactics.
Post something about your business without a link to your business, but maybe a blog or just something to spark some curiosity. I find that this usually works better than just posting a link to my company website.
Top Tips for How To Recruit with Facebook
Get in the habit of connecting or re-connecting with 3 to 5 people per day and watch your business grow. Who wants to join me in reaching out to 5 people per day on Facebook? And this isn’t about spamming, but actually sending out messages to people you have as friends or new friends. Just simply introduce yourself and ask your new or old friend about what they are up to. Again, you are not even mentioning your business unless they ask you about it. Then and only then would you even mention it. Just send a message with the following, “Hey John, it’s been awhile since we last connected, what are you up to these days?”
Start a Facebook Group for network marketers. I started a group called “Become an MLM Superstar”. I’ve definitely sponsored at least a handful of people from this group and it’s a great way to connect with others who may not join your business, but definitely are like-minded for the most part.
Just be consistent in your activity. If you’ve only got a few minutes per day, maybe you set a goal to just reach out to 2 or 3 new people per day. My goal is to go for reaching out to 5 new people per day with no ulterior motive except that I am looking for people who have similar interests (networking, business owners, music, entrepreneurs).
