Facebook is my bread and butter of making money online. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that Facebook won’t help you make money. You don’t listen to a taxi driver on how to fly a plane do you? Here are some key fundamentals that you need to do and stay consistent. I have marketed on Facebook everyday including birthdays and vacations so you get the idea that I put a lot of time into becoming successful. I specialize in Facebook marketing in the last several years.

Profile Picture – Put up a picture of you! It can be a picture of you by yourself or group of people, pets, etc. This makes you more approachable so people feel like they are networking with a HUMAN

Is your Facebook account personal or business? – If you talk about anything that has to do with online marketing, do your Facebook friends say “wow scammmmmm”, “is this a pyramid scheme?” , etc. If so, then you have a personal Facebook account most likely. My Facebook account has 100% marketers.

I like money. My personal Facebook account doesn’t make me money. It lets me see pictures of people getting married, babies, having fun on vacations, but they don’t make me money. I keep two accounts separate. These people are not interested in what we do. That’s just part of life.

*NOTE* – People usually get stopped with new Facebook account by Facebook security check, and require you to identify some faces with the correct name

Easiest way to identify people in your new account during the Facebook security check is to open up a different browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and log in to your old account. While doing the test in your new account, you can search the names in your old account to look for their pictures to match the one shown in the identification test

You can have two or more Facebook accounts running at same time in different web browsers

Marketers do not want to see news, politics, etc. – There’s television and newspapers for those things. When I review Facebook profiles of people who are not doing well, I tend to see lots of quotes, news, Obama, jokes, games, and music videos. You’re here to make money!

5000 friends? – If you’re reading this section for help on getting sign ups for your business, then chances are, you don’t have 5000 good connections. I have gone through my Facebook friends’ list, and removed a lot of people who have abandoned their account (for example, stopped posting in year 2012) and also deleted people who just don’t sync up with me. Not everyone will have a connection with you. Just like in real life, not everyone will be your friend. Quality over quantity

Connect with people in the same business as you – whether your Facebook account is brand new or not, always add a bunch of people that are in the same business as you. I used to think this is counter-productive because those people can’t join the business I’m in since they are in already. These people are here to support you. When you post on your wall about the business, you will have some who will Like/Comment on your post with positive energy. This looks good to people who are NOT in the business you’re in currently, and posts that have Likes and Comments get noticed more on their Facebook news feed. Your post shows up more likely at the top of your friends’ news feed as well as the news feed of your friends’ friends that are not your friends, which means more traffic/leads for you, and ultimately, more friend requests to build up your list. Every business has Facebook group so type in the search field on Facebook with the name of the company, and you will usually find groups with that name. Interact with people in those groups with comments, likes, and basically congratulate/welcome people to make you more noticeable and approachable

Like and Comment – Click on your news feed tab (if you’re not sure where to find it, then just go to facebook.com because it will bring you to the front page to show you peoples’ posts also known as the News Feed), and start liking and commenting on things you find interesting. This will get you more noticed in the network marketing community. Some people will also start liking and commenting on your stuff too, and then you start to build a good friendship.. sort of like breaking the ice. As mentioned above, Likes and Comments push your posts to the top of peoples’ news feeds as well as THEIR friends’ news feed too. Don’t be greedy… don’t just expect everyone to like/comment on your stuff. Like and comment their stuff too without expecting anything in return. I had many great marketers that add me as a friend as they see that I am good friends with their friend as well.

When someone sends you a request to LIKE their Facebook fanpage – As long as the content is appropriate and family friendly, then show support and LIKE it. Not only should you LIKE the fanpage, but also write a simple post on that fanpage such as “just liked your page :) keep rocking!” … of course don’t say the same stuff I’m saying. Be original, but most importantly, stand out of the crowd of other people that LIKED the fanpage. One short message can go a long way to become likable (rapport)
