MLM Training – Two Social Networking Websites You Should Use To Grow Your Network

If you’re building a network marketing business, then one of the most important things you need to do is grow your network. Now, growing and expanding your network can be done many different ways. Back in 1998 when I got started in the industry, I had to go out and literally introduce myself to people one-by-one who I came across to grow my network. Another way I grew my network back then, after running through my warm market, was to go to job fairs and hand out business cards. Of course, this was before doing business on the internet became the norm. Today, doing business and building a network marketing business online is not only the norm, but it’s simply a smart thing to do. The creation of social networking sites has made the world a lot smaller, and has now enabled network marketers to grow their network without leaving their home.  In this article, I’ll cover two social networking sites you should join, if you haven’t already, and why you should join them.

The first social site I recommend is Facebook. Now, chances are you already have a Facebook profile, which is good. Facebook is currently the king of social sites, going over 550,000,000 users. For this reason alone, it makes sense to use Facebook to meet new and interesting people and grow your network. But, another reason why Facebook makes networking so convenient is that you can target the people you want to connect with. You can simply join a relevant group or fanpage and connect with fellow members. In other words, by joining groups and fanpages that have to do with “network marketing” or “personal development”, chances are you’ll be connecting with like-minded people that have the same interests as you. It goes without saying that your goal when you connect with someone, is not to pitch your business or shove your business down their throat. You goal is to connect, build rapport and get to know them. Build a friendship before you bring up your business because they’ll be more receptive to your message if they like you. It doesn’t guarantee that they’ll be interested in your business, but I guarantee you that you‘ll get much farther making friends than spamming everyone on your friends list. If you haven’t signed up for an account, you should go ahead and do that. It’s free, it’s simple and, quite frankly, it’s fun.

The second social site I recommend is LinkedIn. Now, LinkedIn doesn’t come close to having the amount of users that Facebook does. However, the calibre of people that are on LinkedIn is top-notch. The average annual income of someone on LinkedIn is $100,000 a year. In addition to that, many LinkedIn users are business owners or corporate executives. Now, why is this important? Well, from a network marketing perspective, do you want to network with influential people with big markets, or do you want to network with people that have no credibility and know 2 people? Like Facebook, it’s completely free and simple to create a profile. But unlike Facebook, it’s not a place to upload fun pictures or anything like that. It’s has more of a corporate setting, so don’t try to bring your Facebook etiquette to LinkedIn. With that said, it’s still a great place to connect with people and, like Facebook, you can target who you talk to by joining relevant groups.

In closing, using social networking sites to meet new people is not only fun, but it’s smart too. In just 1 or 2 hours a day, you can meet and connect with 50-100 people a day, all without leaving your home. As long as you make true connections with people and you don’t spam people, growing your network will not be that difficult. And if you plan on building a successful business, that’s a good thing.
