MLM Twitter Recruiting.

Do you use twitter for your recruiting for your home business?

Do you know HOW to maximize twitter for your network marketing efforts?

Are there  twitter followers that you are wasting on your mlm business?

Twitter is an often misunderstood social site, and it really does matter in the social sphere when building a business. It has over 250 million users, and that is almost as big as the US. True, it is smaller then facebook, but twitter carries a powerful punch when it comes to marketing.

I read a LOT and I recently ran across on Social Media University a cool post on Twitter Tips- from Zoober Training – for business and wanted to share it with you as thought it to be useful. It has some GREAT tips for building a home business for twitter which are very applicable to direct sales, network marketing or party plan.

Twitter Tips for Businesses

Tip #1 – Make the most of lists

Organise who you follow into lists so you can easily see what the current
trends and topics are in the different segments that you target. For example,
you can create lists for:

  1. Existing customers
  2. Prospects
  3. Competitors
  4. Industry analysts/commentators
  5. Press.

You can keep up to 500 people/organisations in each list, making it easier to
filter the important tweets from the not so important and respond accordingly.
You can also then just send your tweets to those individual groups so your
social media marketing is targeted and personalised, just like marketing should

Tip #2 – Use the branding options

Regularly update the visual branding on your page so that it reflects your
company but also promotes the things about it that you want it to. Insert
campaign artwork, use graphics to highlight important company news and
coordinate the link colours used in the tweets with your brand colours. Regular
updates like this will make you stand out as a company that’s got a lot going on
and one to watch.

Tip #3 – Create Twitter landing pages

Don’t just link back to your home page or product/service pages all the time.
This will be really boring for everyone. Create value-adding landing pages that
make those followers glad they clicked. You can even have a permanent Twitter
landing page to link out to from your bio rather than just the company website,
where you can introduce the visitor to your company in a way that matches with
Twitter’s more relaxed and informal tone.

Tip #4 – Put your followers to work

Create a special offer for your followers to attract more attention for your
business along the lines of a loyalty programme. For followers that re-tweet
regularly, provide a free consultation, a free ticket to an event or a free
sample of your product. This way you’ll reach more Tweeters, with the added
bonus of the re-tweeter endorsing your brand.

Tip #5 – Think creatively

Social media offers businesses ways to interact with their customers in ways
never dreamed of before. Make the most of the new channels to do new and
creative things with your marketing – create games, videos and communities for
them to interact with. Don’t just bombard them with hard sell messages.

MLM Twitter- 5 Ways to DOUBLE Your Twitter Followers in 10 Minutes a Day


mlm social media

MLM Twitter Tips for Home Business.

Do you use twitter for your home based business?

Are you an avid twitter marketer for your network marketing business?

How would you like to learn how to double your followers on twitter?

(Follow Doug On Twitter)

There is a blogger on Social Media Today that I love to read. His name is Brad Smith and he is REALLY good.

Here is a post that will rock your social world on twitter.


Social media doesn’t have to be time consuming.

But there’s no reason you have to check Twitter every hour. Too many people confuse busyness with effectiveness.

In fact, 10 minutes a day is all it takes to engage with others and grow your followers.

Here’s 5 easy things you can start using this week.



1. Do Less

You can’t always get better results with doing more.

So instead, try to do less but focus on the essential.

Your results will skyrocket if you set constraints, like setting a timer for 10 minutes per day, and establish accountability, with time tracking software like RescueTime.

Start by looking at your own daily routines and activities. You’re probably wasting hours surfing the net or hanging out on Twitter.

The opportunity cost of that time is huge. For example, instead of hanging out on another Twitter Chat, you should be doing this…


2. “Top-Down” Strategy

People think that social media is only about community management.

So they get on Twitter and tweet to an empty room, or try to interject or interrupt others in order to “engage the conversation“.

That’s a really ineffective use of your time.

A better strategy is to put yourself in a position where others want to contact you .


  • Offer to speak for free to local organizations
  • Contribute guest content to other websites
  • Help a nonprofit with their social media strategy
  • Create a free tool, plugin, or theme and email it to relevant bloggers
  • Run a promotion with another brand or blog

The possibilities are only limited to your imagination. But every time the goal is to give freely to people who have influence or control over communities of people.


3. Automate

One of the best things about internet marketing is the tools that help you automate different processes. These tools also help you appear really active.

They will send out a consistent stream of updates through-out the day, night and weekend, giving the appearance that you’re always “staying engaged”. Here are two of my favorites.

Import the Tweet Old Post WordPress plugin to automatically send out posts from your archives. You can set up the time frequency, add hashtags, or even a brief message before or after each update. You can also specify a date range, so people will only get posts from the past 3 months, or posts from a year ago.

Another useful tool is Twitterfeed, which will send out Tweets automatically from RSS feeds you enter. So you can load your own fee, or your favorite blogs, and it will take care of the work for you.


4. Curate

Curating other people’s content helps you build thought leadership and can also create reciprocity. And again, there are a variety of tools that make this process instant and pain-free.

Start by grabbing a collection of your favorite blogs and loading them into a RSS reader like Google Reader.

Now you can quickly scan the headlines each day and pick out the best articles to share with everyone else. Then use Timely or Buffer to schedule these updates through-out the day. These tools also help you optimize each update to go out at the best times of the day. That means greater visibility, increased reach, and more click-throughs.

Add a few thoughts to each to personalize your message and show off your personality. Because people on Twitter don’t just want to see your links, they want to know why you like it. Then they can emotionally connect with your point of view and leave their own comment.


5. Engage

You’ve removed a lot of the time consuming aspects of Twitter in the first four steps.

What’s left is the important part – engaging with other people.

But when you start following hundreds of people, your home stream quickly becomes useless. So start creating Private Lists for the important people you want to connect and stay in touch with. For example, you can have one for “Bloggers & Journalists”, one for “Customers/Clients”, one for “Friends” and another for “Influencers”.

Now every time you login, you’ll immediately know what’s going on in your important circle of contacts.

And you can spend the bulk of your time communicating and using Twitter for the reason it was created – connecting with other people.

These are 5 Powerful ways to double your following on twitter for your mlm network marketing home business!

Do you KNOW how to use it Powerfully and make it work for you and your network marketing business?
How do YOU use in in your mlm efforts?
Twitter seems to attract just about every kind of person, and from every walk of life.
Some people GET twitter and others do not. I love twitter, and think the site can really create some great exposure for you.
Many folks use twitter in many ways. Some use it occasionally and other use it all day. And it both works, and works well.
Twitter is a “micro blogging” site, and like others, you can send a message to your followers in 140 characters. That forces you to SHRINK your message to a bite size piece of communication
There are 6 ways to help build business with twitter:
1) Drive people to your blog.
2) Drive people to your website.
3) Drive people to your Podcast.
4) Brand yourself repeatedly.
5) Drive people to your internet webinar/ Conference call / internet TV cast.
6) Drive people to your “meet up.” 
After you have been on twitter for a while, you will make connections and then friends that can help introduce people to you that can use your products or business.
Develop “Doorways.”
These are people on twitter that can lead to someone else or something else. That alone can MULTIPLY your exposure and success in your mlm business.
Doorways lead to other doorways. And doorways always can OPEN new possibilities that can lead to new mlm business.
Twitter can open thousands of doors if done right. With over 200 million people on twitter, you can connect with a TON of prospects for your home based business.
Lets cover these briefly:
1) Drive people to your blog.
You can ask a question or state something that can compel people to click on your url to your blog tweet.
2) Drive people to your website.
You can ask someone to please give you their opinion on it as far as attraction or functionality.
3) Drive people to your Podcast.
You can give a FREE download to a podcast and get a lot of traffic.
4) Brand yourself repeatedly.
Use the same slogan, names, or themes in all you do. This will brand you well on twitter.
5) Drive people to your internet webinar/ Conference call / internet TV cast.
“Now broadcasting LIVE-join in the fun!” This can promote what you are doing NOW and drive traffic to your event.
6) Drive people to your “meet up.”
Tweet or Direct Message about local meet ups. Tweet even DURING the tweet up and then after wards as well to tell of the fun and who you met.
These are 6 ways to create a Powerful Twitter Success in your network marketing home based business.

Social Media MLM – 5 Ways to Avoid Overexposure in Social Media

mlm social media

social media overexposure


Social Media MLM Training.

What is one of the worst things that you can have in social media and a home business?

Are you aware that it can destroy your brand and even your business over time in network marketing?

What is this devastating poison called that harms your social media home business?

It is called  “Over Exposure without Value.”

Ok- fair enough…but what is that?

“OEWA”  is when someone is constantly being seen trying to sell or recruit in the social media zone and is NOT bringing any Value to the social conversation and people in social networking circles start getting tired of their selfish messages.


It creates something that I call “Social Visibility Fatigue.”

Much like with President Bush or President Clinton, and now somewhat with President Obama, the US got TIRED of the nonstop talk, images in the media, and chatter about them and people just wanted these guys to just go away. And true, as always, politics may have played some into it, but even staunch Republicans got tired of Bush and diehard Democrats got tired of Clinton.

That what happens as well in sociao media,  with an Overexposed message with seemingly No Value.

There are some folks that you see everywhere on social media,  but people do not ever seem to get tired of them. You read their posts daily, watch their videos constantly, and talk about their current message powerfully.

Why in the world does this happen?

There are certain social media folks thay bring Extreme Value to everything they say and do and contribute to the social media word. They do it without a selfish motive and YOU CAN FEEL IT, as well as sense it.

There are a LOT of social networking folks that bring great VALUE to EVERYTHING they do, and people on facebook, twitter, pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, and other social sites look forward to hearing from them- again and again and again.

And they keep coming back for more!

What makes these folks special, is they do not “pitch” you on their products or trainings every time they hold a conversation online, text, broadcast a message or say something in a video. They constantly bring a more powerful conversation into the community with powerful ideas and concepts that ADDS– not tries to take from the whole.

Their message in social media BRINGS VALUE– not tries to be SEEN as VALUE. People are savvy enough to tell the difference today in social media.

And folks, that ONE THING  is the difference between powerful and enduring Successful Social Media professionals- and the ones that are not so successful.

It appears that Successful professionals in social media seem to focus more on being Valuable and BRINGING Value to people’s lives daily, – while it comes across that less than successful folks seem to focus more on being Visible.


Valuable vs. Visible.

Your ONLY goal in social media as a network marketing professional should be to provide Jaw Dropping Value FIRST and be Visible SECOND!

Extreme Value FOR Social media will ALWAYS bring HIGH VISIBILITY IN social media!

You must understand that there is the critical distinction between people looking Forward to your Message, and people being Tired of your Message.

 Over Exposure  Remedy.

So here is the Million Dollar Question: What can you do to powerfully market your home business message and NOT become a Victim of Overexposure?

Here are 5 things:

1) One secret is to give away something for FREE regularly and make it WORTH something and Usable

Do NOT make the mistake that a lot of people make…they save their best content for their CDs and webinars. If you want to gain High Visibilty, then give something away that has TRUE VALUE and can be used.

2) Another secret is to Solve problems for people.

Find out what challenges that your prospects have. Ask them.   Give them multiple solutions and ideas and resources that will help solve that problem, and then connect with them in your own webinar.

3) Start to Reveal Little Known and Little Taught Information.

What you need to start doing is research and find GREAT information that most people do not know exists and then help them discover it through a free download.  That process of helping people and showing them the way is called “Social Media Leadership” –guiding,  directing, and leading folks to new possibilities for their life.

4) Become a Powerful Resource…Suggest other people’s webinars, PDFs, ebooks, CDs, blogs, downloads, and content.

Why in the world do you think I am always pointing  folks to other people’s content on EVERY blog post? ?   Social Media Leadership. And it HELPS folks discover new messages, products, content, soultions, ideas and personalities in MLM they did not know exists that has made a HUGE difference in my life.

5) This is a MUST in all you do: Ask a very powerful but simple question- “Where’s the Beef?”

You may remember Clara Peller in that famous Wendy’s commercial. It became a national slogan for even a presidential election. It should be YOUR slogan in your social media marketing efforts. Yes, you can hold powerful conversations and keep it personal, and Value is within the CONNECTION . But in your marketing broadcasts, “where’s the beef?” Make sure that the Value is:

Constant VALUE.

VALUE that Makes a Difference.

VALUE that is USABLE and Teachable. (Much of what is out there is NOT.)

Are you making this HUGE Mistake in your network marketing home business of Exposure without Value?

I would highly suggest that you check your tweets, posts, notes, texts, mobile communicaiton, Direct Messages, IMs, and marketing efforts and BEEF UP the Value in your social media marketing for your netwpork marketing home business.

5 Magnetic Questions to ask your Prospect during a Tuugh economy

3 Quick MLM prospecting Secrets that will Rock Your world

Social Media MLM – Will it be VALUE or VOLUME for your Social MLM Business?

mlm social media value

mlm socialmedia home business


Social Media MLM Marketing.

Lets be real….We know the drill about social media for your home business.

Or DO YOU REALLY? Do you KNOW what needs to be done in social media for your mlm home business?


Or maybe we may think we do.

Here is an example of hat is being taught about social network marketing:

Get as many followers as you can on as many social sites as you can.

Befriend as many people as you can on facebook, google+, twitter, LinkedIn, youtube, and the like.

Let people know how many view your videos – or supposed to have viewed. ahem.

And get the word out and let people know that you are personally on over 400 social networking sites.

The Social Media Gurus?  Ahem.

Oh- of course- cannot forget this: Get as many people on your group as you can- and then email them daily. Get the numbers up-up-up! And then focus on BIGGER and MORE Powerful numbers- and do not worry about any Value that you need to bring to the table. Everything is all about NUMBERS and if you have the numbers that are supposed to be in your groups-you will do fine. THAT is how you market in social media- and you MUST follow the gurus, experts, and leaders that propose that- THEY know best!!!

Million Dollar MLM Question.

Here is a Million Dollar Question:  ok…Where is the Kool Aid?

 Just read an unbelievable article about someone that was saying that twitter is getting as many people as you can to follow you, and THEN you send them advertisements everyday. and DO NOT let up- until they unfollow you. THEN you direct message them.

Yes…I actually read that on a blog. A very stupid blog.


Can you say Certified crd carrying could care less about you —SPAMMER?


Who in the world sold you on that idiotic concept?

NOTE:  Marketing is and always has been  a delicate balance in the socialsphere– no doubt. But that balance many times can be pushed and pulled way out of balance.

Many people that are online and on social media focus on Volume and Numbers and not Value and Names.  DID YOU GET THAT?

Social Media MLM Marketing is about VALUE FIRST– as long term Volume in any corporate of home business will be a result of that. Yes, you need to get some people to follow you on twitter- but here is a nice thought: how about bringing REAL Value to them- instead of trying to pump out a Volume of sales to them first?

This Social Media MLM Marketing Model we call “Connection Marketing”- not “Conjob marketing” as so many people seem to attempt on the social networking scene. Get over it- as people see through that. You MUST grasp the reality that mlm marketing in the social media arena is VALUE Driven- and VALUE focused.

THEN you can start the Volume Conversation that MUST happen if you are going to market in the social media arena.

Get the FACTS.

YOU MUST GET THE FACT that Social Media MLM Marketing is based first on foremost on what level of Value you bring to the conversation. What NEW and Powerful ideas and potent possibilities are you sharing? HOW can you help them move past and above where they are?

What is it that you can do to make sure their experience with you in social media is UNFORGETTABLE? Once people then start to build enduring trust in you and your message- then the Volume Conversation can be brought in- at the right time.

Ok….the bottom line questions is: 

Will it be Value or Volume in your Social Media MLM Marketing?

It is a delicate but powerful balance- and between the two, Value is the REAL catalyst for Success with Volume in Social Media MLM marketing for your home business.
