My 7 Step Dos and Don’ts to Build Up my Facebook Profile and Follower base Daily.
#1. Honestly, DON’T accept every friend request.
Same way you wouldn’t make friends with every stranger you meet on the street. Nor do you give out your phone number, address and key to every person you meet. Some people do truly water down your brand.
In fact, as a friend once said:
DON’T Add random people just because they are “friends of your friendsClick To Tweet
“Some people don’t send friend requests, they are Surveillance cameras, ready to poop on your parade.”
#2. DON’T Add random people just because they are “friends of your friends without finding out if they are the kind of person you would be happy to have a cuppa or party with!
You could end up adding a hacker or evil-carnival monster! Or worse, you could have your Facebook account shut down….
By the way if your brand/website link is blocked for some crazy wrong reason you can take some Ninja steps we shared here…Yes sometimes people report you due to jealousy and FB shuts you down first and doesn’t ask any Questions later…So you need to have the above resource on your bookmark list just in case.
DO Check out the content on that potential friend’s profile.Click To Tweet
#3. DO Check out the content on that potential friend’s profile.
Does it have content that you like, inspires you, makes you laugh in a good way? Or are they weirdos?
Does the person share any similar interests? Do they seem to be industrious?
Do they have a profile picture that says “Human?”
If NO, move on…Seriously. Lots more on Facebook, all of 2 billion+ per month!
Don’t add “eggheads” thats a red flag for bots!
#4. Having mutual friends SHOULDN’T BE your Only deciding factor.
It’s only a bonus. Learn about the person for yourself, go stalk em for all of a minute…You will see if they are truly your Shot of Vodka. 😉
Here is my take, if our mutual friends are just as random and “strange to me”, if I have never really interacted with them either, then I may also not be that engaged with you. So I have to find a deeper reason to add you or accept your friend request!
#5. Engage with the person’s posts/content and see if they engage back. After all social media is a TWO-WAY STREET…Engagement is the name of the game.
You totally don’t need more spectators on your friends list who have no interest in engaging and connecting with you.
In my language we call them “Kamoolists” 😊
These people absolutely kill your edge rank…aka Your FB posts reach. Every time you post and don’t get your so called “Friends” engage, your influence on FB drops…Think about this the next time you feel tempted to add a random stranger, who only visits their FB to post “fake news!” ☹Every time you post and don’t get your so called “Friends” engage, your influence on FB drops.Click To Tweet
#6. Move the conversation to Messenger.
If you say hello to someone and they do not respond! That’s Not a problem, release them! After all, you don’t need to be Facebook friends to connect in Messenger. If someone is interested in relationship building and connection, they will communicate.
So be sure to always visit your “Other Folder”we always do and clear our unnecessary messages, bots and stalkers. And you may have a super star waiting to connect with you! (See image below)
#7. Don’t Be a Sale-zilla – i.e. send a friend request and once added as a friend immediately pitch your product or opportunity.
This screams amateur. 😳 This will lose you respect, get you unfriended, blocked, and likely reported to Facebook as a spammer! Yes, some people are that sensitive to sales pitches…
Quite Frankly it is that type of behaviour that devalues the Online Marketer and Your Profession. It also makes it much harder for the rest of the professionals trying to build their business with integrity and come from a place of service!Understand why someone wants to connect with you too.Click To Tweet
QUALIFY Your Potential Friends:
Understand why someone wants to connect with you too. Some are simply inspired by you, thats all. Others just want to look popular so they are building their numbers up. Others are marketers and entrepreneurs The fact that they are business owners, Reps or Distributors for an MLM or company X shouldn’t be an issue really. That’s being myopic.
What you want to determine is if they are solely connecting to recruit you…
So, Qualify them first. They could be a marketer yet really want to connect with you.
We don’t know until we have a conversation, in messenger
People usually reveal their true intentions in messenger…
And remember TRUST IS EARNED!
What happens after they accept your Friendship or Add you?
This is what I teach inside of the Winning entrepreneurs’ den daily!
The fun part happens in Messenger….
See, you want to set time to network in Messenger. And we will look at this next week in more detail. In brief thought, I set aside time to NETWORK, and I set my timer for 60 minutes segments.
During that time, I start conversations, reply to people, following up on earlier conversations regarding whatever.
We have different techniques for different people. Because One size doesn’t fit all, not in Marketing.
So, you can choose to be part of a powerful Private Mastermind Community and see faster growth in your business. OR…
Try out, DIY different things and see what works best for you.
I may accept a friend request and due to my schedule, cannot message them until much later in the day or even days later…If this is the case, I try not to accept any one until I can do the messaging immediately. That way FB doesn’t think I am adding random strangers!
I appreciate that we are all busy humans and so someone may not answer immediately either. But if 48 hours elapse…well If I sent the friend request, I cancel it. Esp. if they are active on their profile.
“You want to Go where you are Celebrated, not tolerated!”
So, work the time in and go Network. Build your facebook profile and follower base with one stone. #Boom
