Well we are coming to an end of 2017 and need to get prepared for 2018.
One of the things that we, as business owners, need to realize is that Social Media is not going away, it is only going to get bigger. What does that mean? It means that it is time for you to take it seriously.
Now, if you were to google the stats around Social Media, you will find that Facebook surpasses all of them, from many aspects. It is truly a fantastic site for us to be able to build a business and it’s TIME to do something with it.
- You need to work your Business Page, daily
- You need to work your Personal Profile, daily
- You need to interact in Groups, daily
The KEY to building a business in Facebook is BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS!! You need to be personable, you need to talk to people, you need to ask questions, you need to teach, you need to motivate, you need to inspire, you need to listen, you need to interact.
By utilizing your Business Page, your Personal Profile, Groups, you can incorporate all of these elements and start to build the relationships that will ultimately lead to business. Please note: it doesn’t happen overnight, there is work involved and it takes the time to build it.
Soooooooo………you NEED to schedule your Facebook time on your calendar!! You NEED to realize the importance of Facebook and how it CAN help to build your business.
I remember when I first starting using Facebook, over 10 years ago, for building my past Direct Sales business, I would spend a total of 6 hours a day on there. I created groups for business owners where I encouraged them to interact, gave them topics to discuss, we had a ton of fun AND to be honest, it was what built my Direct Sales business. Today, I spend 3 hours each morning for myself and my clients and then will check in throughout the day BUT if I am home working, then I am constantly working my Facebook.
I really can’t stress the IMPORTANCE of spending the time and doing the work on Facebook!! Schedule at least an hour each morning to get what you need to get done and then make sure you are checking in throughout the day to keep the interaction going. You can do this!!
