More About Facebook

These are closed groups that my sister and niece have on Facebook. They both do live videos to sell their products in these groups.  The groups are private and only the administrators can admit someone in.  The members have exclusive access to the live videos. This affords first pick of the products shown.

The reason this is so appealing to potential customers is not only because they are invited into a private group but also because they can see the person who is selling the products.

Facebook for Marketing

This is a huge subject so we will take it apart.  We all know that Facebook is the most familiar social media.  It is great for keeping in touch with family and friends and to play games with many other gamers on Facebook.  It is a great platform for all of our personal relationships.  But there are other things we can do. We can use it to invite people to events, to set up a group page and have a business page.  The blogs we post can be sent to our personal page and our other pages.

One of the ways to use a group for a business is to set it up for invited potential customers only. This way you can be pretty sure they are interested in your business. Some of these groups have games and live videos. It is a great way to build a relationship with people interested in what you have to offer. Speaking of live videos, this is the best way to catch your audience’s attention. It is why we see so many videos on all social media. People love them and when they see someone they know it is even more attractive. So think about it. You might find live videos to be the best way to start that relationship with your customers.

There is one important thought to keep in mind. Always keep interacting with those that show interest. If someone asks about something you are showing on a video, personal message (PM) them. You may find this the best way to close the sale.

That’s all for now. Go try these ideas. Next time I will have more about Facebook.

´╗┐What can be found on Pinterest?

The first thing that made me interested in social media networking for sales was a makeup company that my sister sells for. The company is Younique. They are people that care so much that they have a foundation to help women who have been sexually abused. This problem has been of great importance to me and my sister.  This link goes directly to their foundation,  Giving to help women learn their worth and beauty.

This link will take you directly to my Pinterest boards,  The variety and beauty that are available in this social media is nothing less than amazing.  If I start looking at all of the pictures there on my Home page, it will be hours before I want to stop. 

Pinterest and sales don’t seem to go together. And I had never thought of Pinterest as a way of helping to get the word out about a product until I started searching for information about make-up. Make-up and make-up tips came up and then I found Younique. And in my searching I found great direct sales advice. Things I have never found anywhere else, This advice is everywhere but not as easy to find. Pinterest is great because it is very organized much like an artist’s morgue.
