Occasionally update your status sharing your link for people to find more information about your business. please note we recommend doing this on very limited occasions 3. Integrate other content that you create and share it in a status update. Every time you record a video or publish an article, post it on your Facebook status. But remember to make sure the content isn't spam my and has true value; always follow the 90/10 rule. ALWAYS FOLLOW: 90% information/communication AND 10% marketing.
You Develop Relationships, You Present, You Sell, You Grow. Advertising is very different in Facebook. * In regular advertising, it's very direct and very sales oriented. * In social media, people run away from that! Social media is about sharing: * Uploading photos, sharing information, or adding value of some kind. Don't expect massive results in the first 30 days. * it just isn't going to happen. Keep networking and it will grow. The best part is that its free to network and you can do it all from home! In Social Media....
You Must Add Value (engage with members). Be authentic, transparent and provide information and be inspirational. Dont Look at This Form of Marketing As A Competition. Look for where & how you can add the most value to the group! Avoid Blatant Self Promotion. You will only become attractive to the marketplace when you genuinely want to and do provide a valuable service. Be Professional. No venting or sharing personal information. (If you want to connect with folks that way, then create two profiles, one for personal connections and one for professional connections.) SOCIAL MEDIA ETTIQUETE
Who is Your Target Market? (get creative and think outside the box) For the gifts: Look at the categories in your store. Gardening - who would like gardening gift baskets? Infant Gift Baskets – who would like to purchase infant gift baskets? Sports Gift Baskets – who would like to purchase sports gift baskets? Military Gifts – who would like to send out military gifts? Candles – who would like to send out candles? STEP #3 CHOOSE YOUR TARGET MARKET:
Who is Your Target Market? (get creative and think outside the box) For the opportunity Who would like to start a gift basket and flower business? Who would like to earn additional income. For example… (stay at home moms, entrepreneurs, women in a home business, small business owners, flower shops owners, people that love crafts). STEP #3 CHOOSE YOUR TARGET MARKET:
We are going to teach on how to find your target market thru joining relevant Facebook groups. You will see a search function at the top of your Facebook profile. (indicated by the little magnifying glass) Type in the keywords you find relevant. HOW DO YOU FIND YOUR TARGET MARKET?
Facebook is a real bonanza for marketers, because users TELL YOU what they're interested in, through the keywords in their Profile description, the Groups they choose to join, the Pages they choose to "Like", even their posts on their profile wall! For example, if we do A search for Military, we see Pages & groups of People that selected Military when they Created their Facebook account. Next, You Will Then See a List of Groups and Pages relevant To That Keyword:
NEXT, Click on "groups" We recommend to always select groups because there will be many people in a group. Next, click a group that has the most members and then select Request to Join
NEXT, Click on "groups" Find a group that has the most members and then select Request to Join Some groups accept you immediately. Some groups have to approve you. If you are approved, you will receive an letting you know that you have been approved.
You goal is to Reach out to 10 new people per day. 1st option: Simply add as friend. (with a personal message to increase the likelihood of them accepting). Or… 2nd option: Send them a message and ask them to add you as friend. We suggest to do a combination of both. Why? Because if you are just adding people as friends, Facebook wont like that and can freeze your account. STEP #4 CONNECT WITH PEOPLE
Everyday go into some of these groups and invite 5 new friends from these target Face Groups, to your relevant Facebook account. (Do not go overboard with friends request). Adding over 5 friends a day can freeze your account. For example, lets click on of the members name i.e. (Curt Tetrault)…. Click on his name and view the next page. 1st option: ADD AS FRIEND:
Send them a message and ask them to add you as friend. 2nd option: Suggestion: Hey Curt, my name is _____, and I really like your website/page. Looking forward to connecting with you. (If you can share specifically what you like about their website or what they posted on their wall, let them know!) Always Be yourself, be authentic. ALWAYS personalize it! (type the message and hit send. The person or people to whom you sent the message will be notified by or the next time they log in. We havent noticed that Facebook keeps track of ratios of SENDING MESSAGES TO PEOPLE. Keep in mind that Facebook Rules are always changing so read their rules. More information about sending messages visit:
NOTE: We havent notice that Facebook keeps track of ratios of SENDING MESSAGES TO PEOPLE. Keep in mind that Facebook Rules are always changing so read their rules. Facebook limits the number of friends you can add per day. This number is limited to how many requests are accepted. We recommend to send no more than three –five friend requests until you get accepted. Each friend accept allows you three more requests. This is why we suggest to do a combination of both. Adding friend requests and sending messages. Play It Safe With Facebook
Soon you will see that you will get friends request. Facebook limits you to 5,000 friends so be picky (look at their photo, read their wall). Be choosy.. Look for: Good Photo? Open and friendly?

YOUR GOAL: 3-5 messages per day lifestyle / or adding value 3-5 interactions per day likes/comments (just 3-5 quick comments what others posted).

Its like having a 2 way conversation. You cant just be posting and posting messages. You have to interact with people.
