The general population doesn’t know how to use Facebook for Marketing and Networking.
If you asked the average user why they use Facebook, he or she would probably say 2-3 things from the following list:
– To stay in touch with close friends and family.
– To keep tabs on my old friends from high school.
– To share selfies and pictures of their cat.
– Post-travel pictures/share life updates.
What they DON’T think of Facebook (unless you are an entrepreneur or savvy network marketer) is that it is a POWERFUL TOOL for networking and finding business leads.
This strategy can be used no matter what your business opportunity is.
I know people in the fitness industry, teaching space, travel industry, and internet marketing business who have used this strategy successfully to BLOW UP their network and to find laser-targeted leads for their business.

You wouldn’t hire a bum off the street to work at your business would you?
The same expectations apply for your network marketing business or mlm whether it’s online or off.
Let’s use dating for example. The first few dates are spent getting to know one another. Each person asks the other one questions to find out if there is some spark or connection.
The guy is wondering, “does this girl meet my expectations?”
The girl is wondering the same thing.
Naturally, they qualify one another to see if it’s a right fit.
They ask questions like:
- Cool people are a dying breed. What do you do for fun?
- Are you spontaneous?
- I love to travel. What about you?
They look at non-verbals:
- body language
and so on and so forth.
If he or she doesn’t meet your standards, the dating ends. You aren’t going to date someone who doesn’t meet your standards, right?
I hope not.
Qualifying someone properly is, therefore, a very powerful signaling mechanism that you are a high value selector. You don’t just let anyone into your life or your business.
This is the psychology you must have to be a closing juggernaut.
I’m going to go off on this topic for a minute and come back to qualification later because I’m feeling this right now.
Limiting beliefs you need to kill in order to become a sniper at closing.
I used to think that the top earners controlled everything, and that there was no room for new guys like me. I was worried that I would run out of leads and there would be nothing left.
My advice to you: SQUASH THAT BULLSHIT.
I went out and proved that to be wrong. Now, I live in a state of abundance. There is enough to go around for everyone (but I am still really competitive). Read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective people to help you with this.
2. Fear of Rejection
I can hear it in your voice, smell it on your clothes, see it in your mannerisms, and decode it it through your Facebook messages and Facebook for Marketing and Networking.
It can walk ALL over you IF you let it.
My first job out of college had me knocking door-to-door selling shitty cable and internet to people. Yeah it sucked, but I grew thick skin from people slamming doors in my face, calling the cops (get mad much?), and telling me to ‘f-off’.
I let go of the emotional attachment and marched on to the next door because I was so damn confident in my salesmanship that I would close 1:5 decision makers. I stuck to the law of averages and worked the numbers.
If you put yourself in the same uncomfortable situation enough times then you will master it. Repetition becomes skill becomes unwavering confidence.
There is no way around this one. You just have to do it.
You just can’t let them go.
They gave you a little tease and peak, showed some interest, and you keep kissing their feet answering all of their questions, but no close.
“I’ve invested all this time already! I just gotta get him! I’ll message him again tomorrow! blah, blah, blah *more whining*”
That is a weak frame. We need to develop a strong frame. An abundant frame.
First thing to do is drop that lead like a bad habit, and march on.
Remember: You are the selector, we left emotion at the door, adopted the abundance mindset, and focused on the numbers.
