Facebook is a pretty big source for my leads, how about you?
I am on other social media networks and I would survive if the worst case scenario happened (it makes me nervous to even think about), but I would survive, how about you?
Please, tell me you haven’t put all of your eggs in Facebook’s basket?
You should be building an audience in other social sites as well. Yes, it’s more work, but the payoff is worth it. Give Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, You Tube or Google+ a whirl! Not all of them, but pick one or 2 more to help you grow your audience and get more leads.
I got a little side tracked there, I was telling you about how to stay out of Facebook jail, wasn’t I? OK, since I’m a network marketing coach and because I’ve got a network marketing business myself, it’s come to my attention that…
I’ve noticed two distinct things going on that seem to be to blame for the influx of Facebook jail birds.
First, Facebook is nailing people for posting duplicate content.
I totally get it when you find a post that knocks your socks off and you think “Man, why didn’t I think of that?!” I really do get that you want to say that too, but not only are you and half of all the other reps in your company copy and pasting that post, much of your audience is probably reading it on multiple friends streams as well. They know you copy and pasted it. That’s not a good marketing practice, it’s a turn off. So if you are going to “borrow” a post, save it for later and change it up to make it your own. Sit on it for a week or so before you repurpose it for yourself. Add some more value to it in some way, so you’ll make an even better impression.
Second, images on Facebook are being passed around like a beer bong at a frat party!
Facebook is a sneaky sucker and Zuckerberg pays attention to every tiny detail. That’s how they make money, by knowing as much as they can about us and our habits. Duplicate content and images cause a big red flag in the algorithms.
Our network marketing companies contribute to this greatly. They think they’re being helpful by creating images for their reps to share as a marketing tool. I’ll bet I’ve talked to 30 people in the past few weeks who were or are in Facebook jail due to that kind of marketing.
So, what to do?
Create value driven content for your followers. Something that educates or entertains and creates curiosity. Create your own images using free image websites and Canva.
In my next post I’m gonna to show you where to find free images you can use for your blog and social media marketing. Take a look at a short video showing you how to use Canva. It’s free too!
