Avoid These Business Crushing Blunders on Social Media

To successfully build your organization, there are many pitfalls you need to avoid if you’re prospecting and recruiting on social media.

Before learning about the WRONG ways to recruit online, I did what my upline in various programs told me to do on social media. Since I had not a clue what I was doing, I relied on them to show me the right way. As it turned out, what they were actually showing me was how to spam!

Have you spent hours a day inviting people to be your friend, and when they accept, immediately pounce on them with a copy/paste canned response like “can I ask you a question” and “are you open to hearing about” messages? It didn’t take me long to stop doing that because people would unfriend me, or simply weren’t interested because they were busy doing the same thing with their own businesses.

Have you posted ads in 100’s of facebook groups, perhaps buying a tool to do it for you automatically? I did. I wasted so much time joining all those groups… and then wasted money on facebook posting tools… and neither got me anywhere other than in facebook jail.

Have you posted ads for your business on your profile page and tagged a bunch of friends in them? Yep. That’s what I was told to do, and blindly I followed that horrible advice. As you can imagine, I didn’t get any positive feedback from that, let alone anyone interested in my business… just a lot of people unfriending me.

Even when I posted simple ads on my profile page without tagging friends and making people comment (engage with me) to ask for the link to whatever I was promoting, sure I got some visitors to those links, but not much else … mostly just dead end chats with people who were really only tire kicking.

So believe me when I say … I have been there!

Top 6 Warning Signs that Your Social Media Prospecting Efforts are Actually SPAM

  1. Your first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity or asking permission to send them one

  2. You get angry replies via private messaging and/or you have been reported as a spammer, or worse yet, get put in Facebook jail.

  3. You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media posts

  4. You PM people you haven’t spoken to since high school

  5. Posting in 100’s of Facebook groups a day, or enlisting an automated tool to do it, and then recommending a subscription to that tool to teammates. Yep, it happened all the time – the blink leading the blind!

  6. You engage in endless interactions online with a hidden agenda, hoping to transition the topic to something that would get people interested in your opportunity, without caring about knowing the other person.

This last one for me is a big one but could also be controversial.

After all, #6 is the very definition of prospecting (online or offline), which even when done right… can still feel awkward, resulting in people getting frustrated or angry at you, completely obliterating any trust they may have been building with you… which is why I eventually decided to stop prospecting all together.

Unfortunately, today…

The Internet Never Forgets and It’s Ruining It for Everyone Else

I’ve heard that success in business is all about ‘the right time’ and ‘the right place’ and the right ‘message’.

Like me, many other network marketers today are being taught methods of recruiting with social media. 

Sadly, these so often include the wrong message, at the wrong time, at the wrong place.

Here’s the truth of the matter:

There is a VERY fine line between recruiting on social media and spamming people. Many network marketers have been turned into human spam bots by their upline and company leaders…

“Yes or No … Next!”

We had become disposable people, just numbers, assigned the job of “spreading the word” about our company’s products or opportunity at the expense of our individual reputations, let alone risking suspension of our social media accounts.

Eventually, all successful entrepreneurs and networkers learn the real secret to success, and it becomes the foundation upon which all of their prospecting, recruiting and business building methods are founded.

What is that “secret”?

People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care” – Theodore Roosevelt

The problem with prospecting as it’s normally taught, is that the mindset going in is still about what YOU want people to do and about manipulating people into doing what you want them to do.

In other words, it’s about YOU, not them.

Building a business online is not about tricking people or finding the right copy/paste facebook messages to send to strangers.

It’s about actually caring about people, becoming a person of value, and being someone uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems!

Being “uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems” is crucial. Any idiot can copy and paste a message into Messager on Facebook…

But what can set you apart from the rest of the desperate distributors or affiliates hitting people’s inboxes with their new “ground floor” opportunities or cash programs?

The Leveraged Alternative to 1-on-1 Prospecting That Won’t Make You Feel Like a Sneaky Car Salesman

With the help of some extraordinary mentors, I have finally discovered an online recruiting strategy which now enables me to passively generate leads, customers, new reps and sales, even when I am out having fun with friends and family.

I call it “No Recruiting Recruiting”, because I don’t have to worry about prospecting anymore!

Rather than spending hours spamming or private messaging people on social media, I am learning how to legitimately get Facebook and other networks to actually help me attract the people who are most interested in what I have to offer!

I can now wake up to an email inbox full of notifications for new leads, new customers, new team members plus commissions I earned while sleeping… without resorting to the slimy feeling tactics commonly used when recruiting with social media.

This strategy is called ‘attraction marketing’, and is an internet marketing tactic especially designed for networkers and people in direct sales.

This was an eye opener for me… if your business depends on you being on social media, sending private messages, or commenting on people’s posts all day, even when you’re at the dinner table with your family or out on a date with your significant other, or heck, even when you’re on vacation… you are NOT doing “internet marketing” despite what you may have been led to believe.

You see, online prospecting and internet marketing are NOT the same thing! Internet marketing is a passive strategy, which works, even when you are not.

So… if the chance to passively build a business and make money automatically interests you (who wouldn’t?!)…
