With every essence of the modern world dedicated to speed, efficiency and automation your manual networking on Facebook probably feels like a slow march through mud.
It doesn’t have to be like that.
Now, I’m not saying that not doing it is such a good idea as there are 700m profiles or something ridiculous like that on FB, that by not networking on Facebook you are missing out on a big arena.
The video below show you how I like to do my networking on Facebook with a couple of cheeky tactics to speed things up for you too.
Networking on Facebook
Obviously, the first thing to do is to determine who your target audience is before diving into networking on Facebook. Is your expertise in Gardening, Upholstery, Crochet?
Once you have defined that, search for the relevant groups and join them and get the conversation going with the members.
My advice is to try and engage people with open questions (questions that can’t simply be answered yes or no) and find out what makes people tick and what they may or may not be struggling with in their business.
If there is any advice or experience that you can share with them, do so, but don’t feel like you have to advise everyone that you meet. Take the pressure off yourself and make networking on Facebook enjoyable.
If you believe that the person that you are talking to would benefit from taking a look at what you have to offer, ONLY after you have qualified them, ask them if they would like you to send them a link. It’s unlikely that everyone is going to be a the right place to entertain starting a new business, but the more rapport that you build as time goes on the more likely you will be there when the timing is right.
Now go out there and get to it! ;p
