Here are some of the basics to get you started. To make your self stand out from the rest of the 500 million user you need to brand yourself as a leader... Find out how below.
- Have a good profile pic, you want to show your face so that people know who they are connecting with.
- Have a good bio. Don't pitch your company in your bio, this is where you talk about who you are.
- Post things of value, if you learned something new, share it with your Facebook friends. Post quotes and things to inspire people ( try www.thinkexist.com). I also like to post something funny sometimes, just so people know that you are a real person. Nothing crude or distasteful.
- Interact with your friends. If all you do is post, post, post, and never reply to anyone or comment then you look like you are just out for yourself.
- Post things to get people to bite -- ex: Who wants to get sexy for summer?
- Don't post all day, you don't want to spam people. You should post 3 personal quotes and 2 business.
Now let's get down to the meat and potatoes...
The first thing you want to do is start a group, name it something so people know that they can come there and get information, for example my group is Quaneshia Holden's Fast Track to Success . You communicate with the people in your group, share with them the value and information that you learn. This will increase you visibility as a leader. You can send messages, videos, links to your blog, anything you want to your group. Just be careful not to over do it. I would say once a day or maybe every other day, because too many messages and it feels like spam. To get people to be active, you can post messages on your wall and in the discussion tab as well.
The key here is to build relationships with people first, find out what they need and offer them a solution. Never just cram your business down someones throat, or in a message for that matter. I see so many people who, once I accept their friend request, they send me a message saying, "Hey Quaneshia, this is the greatest business ever, and you can make a bazillion dollars! All you have to do is click this link" LOL, or something crazy like that. Trust me that is so not the way to go here. So just take the time and ask a few questions first.
To your success,
