The Magic of Using Social Media, Social Networking, and Viral Marketing to Fill the Bean Jar!
One of the biggest shortcomings people in this business experience is the fact that they do not have enough possibilities in their bean jar – therefore they fail to develop prospects. Prospects lead to sponsoring individuals or getting more customers, and in turn, those individuals lead to more beans in the jar, partners and customers.
People who do not fill their bean jars either do not get out and meet people, or they only work inside their warm circle of influence and are not meeting new possibilities. Social media, social networks, blogs and viral marketing are an incredible breakthrough and can be a solution to this problem!
These tools can cause a quantum leap in your growth, helping fill the funnel continuously – resulting in sponsoring and retailing that duplicates. This in turn produces an incredible organization and customer base that can result in a significant ongoing income.
Using Facebook or Twitter or even creating a blog can totally change things for someone struggling to fill the funnel. The process of prospecting through social media is actually is the same technique as prospecting in the real world − cultivating possibilities among the people you deal with on a regular basis.
The difference is that you don’t physically need to meet people or travel to places over the course of your weekly routine (though you should still do that too). You basically promote yourself, position yourself and brand yourself while networking and making friends. People find out about you from their friends and become your friend or follower.
When you tell stories about your experiences, success, or things you do in the business, your friends and contacts see what you have to say. They can see what you have to say about the results you have experienced in the business, you can talk about people you meet in the business, or even new technology or results people have experienced while using the products.
Your friends and followers see these testimonials when you share them. If they respond to your posts, or share them with their contacts, your business begins to expand exponentially. Social networking like this creates curiosity and interest, and the people you know ask questions. This is just like cultivating a possibility that you meet in person.
If you do it a lot and keep up with your social network, your expansion through these tools can blow up overnight. Part of what you have to do cultivate and nurture your relationships by being responsive and interactive.
Cultivating the relationships you form online through social networks can trigger a major opportunity to build your business – by bringing them on board. Plus, when you have a positive relationship you can always use the referral technique by asking for their help by referring the right people to you!
