I would like to invite you to read this article to gain insight into how beneficial social media is in enhancing your business and brand. However let us dig deeper into social media and find out how others are doing it the wrong way.
YouTube and Face book, two of the most prominent social media networks, are where entrepreneurs and consumers meet. However some business owners use them incorrectly by pitching consumers right away with a business opportunity.
Most people try to promote their opportunity immediately. However this will not help your business at all. Social media is just that – social. It is a place to build relationships and trust. Not a sales or advertising platform.
Stop to consider how great it would be if you could sign up all the people from your Face book’s list of friends, into your business opportunity. How much money would that bring in to your business, in terms of profits?
How would that affect the lives of people on your friend’s list—their lives and their family’s?
To do this you have to offer great content to elevate your business status, and have the opportunity to also help people improve their lives through your business opportunity. You trust your opportunity and you are aware of how it can improve the lives of people who sign up – but remember others don’t.
