If you’ve been struggling with prospecting new members into your network marketing business, I get it. I used to struggle too. But, I want to share with you some ideas on what you can start implementing into your business right now that will help you to signing up new customers and reps. Learn To Recruit Leaders In Your MLM! http://chrisrford.recruitleadersnow.com/ 1 You need to actively work your warm market list. Your warm market list can consist of family, friends. And if you don’t like those kind of sales prospecting techniques, you know…harassing your friends and family and things like tapping into your 100 list of warm market people….I get it. I don’t like it either. Which is why I don’t do it. I have not done that in years yet I was able to build a business online without doing any of that. However, if that’s your thing, and you want to do it, great, why not? Me personally, I would rather not do that. I prefer to do it on social media. I prefer to create content and draw people to me. When I draw people to me and they’re coming in through my capture pages, they’re watching my videos, they’re sending me messages on Facebook. That is what you call a warm market list through social media. To me it’s way easier to connect with people who are coming to you for the information versus you going to chase your family and friends. Now, again, I want to make this very clear, if that is your thing, great. For me I don’t want to do that. I know for most people they don’t want to do that either. Thank God for social media, because on social media you can actually tap into your warm market. Your warm market are your followers on your Fanpage. Your warm market are people on your mailing list if you’ve been building one. If you haven’t been building one, shame on you. But you already have a warm market list right on social media, so start there. 2 Start shooting videos and putting them up on YouTube. Put them up on Facebook. Put them up on your Fanpage. Now with Instagram you can actually upload up to one minute in video footage. Video is a great way to create content for your business. You can do product reviews, your business opportunity reviews, of course without actually pitching your business. When you do that you will start generating more leads and more sales. More customers will start coming in and more people will want to join you in your business. 3 Put together a free offer. Give something away for free. For example, let’s say you were in the health and wellness industry and you were selling a shake. So instead of pitching your shake all the time, how about you add some valuable content by creating a capture page, creating a bridge page. We’ll talk about those in future videos coming. Create some kind of capture page with a free offer for someone to download a video of maybe you sharing your top ten ways to lose belly fat, then introduce your shake. If you are, let’s say, in the travel niche and you want to sell your travel program, why not just put together a free offer, a free PDF download with at list of your top 100 family destinations. Through there you can sell them on your travel membership. Do you see where I’m going with this? These are great sales prospecting techniques you can start using in your business right now. So many people make it so complicated. It really doesn’t have to be. So there you have it. Those are my 3 sales prospecting techniques to sponsor more reps, more customers inside of your business.

Online Reputation and Social Media Management
Even though a company sees the value of social media, it doesnt mean the organization or its members are ready for it. Have you started something you really werent ready for? Sometimes it works out and other times it doesnt.
In order for companies to realize the maximum benefit from social media marketing, there must be a certain level of understanding about the nature of online communities, social media sharing web sites and applications. One of the most effective ways TopRank Online Marketing has found to assess a companys awareness, capabilities and resources for social media marketing is to conduct an external audit and an internal survey.
Identifying a companys current state of social media readiness helps determine benchmarks and sets a baseline from where to build from. This is part of developing a social media strategy and helps avoid the random testing many companies are calling their social media strategy.
There are a number of free or low cost tools that one can use to identify a brands current social web participation, ranging from social media monitoring software to profile checking tools like KnowEm to social search tools like How Socialable, 48ers or socialmention.
With many companies, there are often a mix of official and unsanctioned social media accounts setup. Its important to get a handle on such participation, whos managing the accounts, whether they are run by employees or fans and what the company can learn from them. Getting a handle on the difference between how social the company is and will need to become is essential for planning, training and strategy development.
As part of the evaluation process, here are a few questions companies might ask themselves and answer as they embark on a social media marketing journey:
What goals do you hope to achieve from a social media marketing effort?
What measures of success will be used to evaluate a social media marketing program?
What are your current social media channels and destination web sites/pages?:
Do you employ a full-time community manager?
If not, do multiple staff share the role of community manager?
Are you conducting a formal effort at monitoring social channels using a social media monitoring/analysis software application? (Ex: Techrigy SM2, ScoutLabs, Trackur, Vocus, SocialRadar, Radian6)
Is there a particular business unit, division or product that can serve as a test case?
If active, how long has the company participated with social media sites and which? Blogging, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Wikis, Delicious, Digg, StumbleUpon, etc
Are current social media participation on different sites coordinated?
Is a dashboard and campaign management tool used for social media content promotion?
Have you noticed any particular preferences within the target audience in their social web participation?
Do they prefer particular sites? (Twitter vs Facebook blogs vs forums)
Do they comment, do they contribute content, do they tend to observe, do they not participate at all?
Have you identified and engaged and/or networked with influentials in your target industry on social web sites?
What unique value do current social media efforts offer clients/prospective clients? What need do they satisfy better than the competition?
Are text content or media regularly shared on other social media sharing sites?
Is there a user generated content component of your web site? Profiles, comments, reviews, content sharing: text, image, video or audio?
What departments, business units, cost centers and approval entities would be involved with the Social Media program? Is there an internal social media council?
What internal human resources are available within the company for support and implementation of social media marketing initiatives? (Content creation, network development, promotion, monitoring & analytics, community engagement)
Obviously each situation is as unique as the company and its objectives, but the list above can provide valuable insight into a companys state of social media marketing readiness as well as provoking new thoughts and concepts. The more informed companies are about the social web, the more successful they will be at qualifying and managing social media marketing agency engagements.
You might be wondering, why did I pick 19 questions when 20 would be a much nicer, even number? Its because Im curious what your 20th question would be. What are we missing? What else would you ask to determine the social media readiness of a company, business unit or division?
Why Companies Need Enterprise Social Networking
Two essential things that each one of us considers prior to joining a new company are its ability to innovate and stay on the top and its culture.. Mulling on this line of thought, an enterprise social network has gained prominence in an organization today. The main reason why many organizations establish such a network in the workplace is to be able to reach out to its employees, bring in a culture of innovation and make achieving business objectives easier. Hence, if you want to adopt an enterprise social network, defining these set of objectives is a great place to begin.
Benefits of an Enterprise Social Network
There are a host of benefits that accrues to a company from enterprise social networks. Some of them are listed below:-
An enterprise social network (also referred to as business social network)
Enables employees to establish stronger bonds with their colleagues and business associates.
Enables the management to recognize employee contributions in a better manner and showcase the best performers.
Provides the employees a place to voice out their thoughts and ideas, and get heard, thereby creating an active feedback mechanism.
Makes the use of emails and business meetings more judicious.
Enables sharing knowledge and essential information De-silos data and offers better awareness of what others are working on
Flattens the enterprise
With social intranet fast gaining importance, enterprise social network too have been gaining significant importance. In order to set up one in your enterprise you need to recognize a business section along with its scope and challenges. You can start by addressing the most crucial challenges and also take into account the business units posed with biggest scopes or even hindrances. Then you can go on to identifying one or more methods that help the team to deal with their work in a better manner. Another essential action is to monitor and track with the appropriate metrics. The traditional web metrics can often be deceptive and ambiguous, when you are analyzing the enterprise social network. Not many social business software does the work efficiently and accurately. The total number of page views, log-ins, and other activity stages comprise essential data but only imply whether the roll-out is aptly planned or not. If the activity levels are less then it would indicate that you have to take into consideration the groups on the platform and analyze the role they are executing. One of the most preferred method for evaluating the ROI on the enterprise social network is by having a long-run view of the business, such as increase response time to customers, faster sales cycles, faster rollout of campaigns, better clarity of information and actions etc.

This video is about the social part of social media for photographers. By being social and participating in conversations and sharing knowledge I am able to increase my social currency. Social Currency is important because without it – you are just shouting and nobody is listening. How do you build social currency for your photography business? Start with GREAT Photographs. That doesnt mean that if youre a beginner you cant post it simply means only post your best. There is nothing worse than the photographer that posts 20 images of the same shot. Only one of them is the best which means all of the others arent! So dont post them. Provide CONTENT and CONTEXT. It is not enough to just post an image. Tell a story. Give some background. Sell it! Dont kid yourself into thinking that people actually care about your photography. If they arent the person in the photo – they dont care about your photography unless you give them a reason to. If you are a portrait or wedding photographer, when you post the image, talk about how much fun you had with the subject, how wonderful the wedding was, or how thrilled you are that you had a chance to spend time with this wonderful person. Comments like this make prospective customers think you are actually a nice person and would be fun to work with. Be consistent. Post on a regular basis. I would encourage you to post a minimum of twice a week on every social media platform that you are involved with. It doesnt always have to be pictures. It could be a cool quote, a link to an interesting article, it could be a short story about an experience or a thought that you had. If you are using social media to build your business this is extremely important and in the next video, I will give you some info on tools that will help you automatically generate content for your posts.

Girl’s ‘suicide video’ sparks outrage online
Days after a 12-year-old girl broadcast her suicide live on a social media site; Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd said he can’t stop people from sharing the video online. In the video, Katelyn Nicole Davis claimed she had been physically and sexually abused by a family member, then hung herself in the front yard of her Cedartown home on December 30. Chief Dodd was initially unaware video of the girls death was being shared on social media. We were actually contacted by a police officer from California who saw it the night of the event, Chief Dodd told FOX 5’s Deidra Dukes. The police departments been flooded with Facebook messages, emails, and phone calls from as far away as Great Britain from people who are outraged the video is being shared online and demanding the police have it taken down. Chief Dodd has personally contacted several of the individuals operating the websites that posted the disturbing footage. Hes urged them to pull the video, without success. The chief said he wishes he could force them to take it down legally, but his hands are tied. We want it down as much as anyone for the family and it may be harmful to other kids. We contacted some of the sites. They asked if they had to take it down and by law they dont. But its just the common decent thing to do in my opinion, said Chief Dodd.
