Social Networking sites like Facebook and My Space can be a great way to find new business partners for your MLM.
Here is some advice as to how to use these sites to your benefit in your network marketing business.
As you add your profile, its important to keep it about you, and not about your business.
Use your real name and not a nickname.
Have a photo of yourself, and you also can add photos of your family or pets, and many sites like My Space allow you to add your own videos as well.
What you want to do is make connections with like minded people, and to let people get to know you and trust you.
You can post a link to your blog, or a lead capture page.
Although you may want to talk a bit about your business, I wouldnt suggest emphasizing this, as it's much more effective, and you are much more likely to make friends, if your profile doesn't look like and advertisement for your business.
Once your profile is ready you will want to add friends.
You can do a specific search for people in your area.
Another way to find friends is to join different groups, there are many groups in the business area, and about network marketing specifically.
In most cases you can also start your own group.
As well as business groups, you may also want to look for groups with interests similar to yours, such as pets, travel or whatever you like.
You can contribute to the discussions and usually can post a link to your web site in a signature.
Also people can click on your profile and add you as a friend.
The more active you are on social networking, the more chance you have of finding like minded people.
Often there is the ability to send private messages to people once they are on your friends list.
Use these messages carefully and most importantly, do not spam anyone! If you do, you may be blocked by that person, or at a minimum, they won't find you very professional.
If someone wants to know about your business or what you do, they will ask you.
Don't send anyone unsolicited information about your MLM.
Using social networking sites can be rewarding and fun, and a good way to find business partners.
Be patient and offer friendship to others, and when you give first without expecting anything in return, you will grow a large network and in turn new people to work with in your MLM.
