Instagram is a social media platform that was created in 2006 and although it took a while to become as popular as it is today, it now has over 40 billion photos shared. So, what makes Instagram so attractive and how can it help you build your network?
Instagram’s unique feature of #hashtagging key words in posts makes it easier for individuals to find you, follow you and engage on this platform with you. The platform is built on the idea of posting a photo, writing a brief description and placing a “#” in front of key words. People can then follow you by searching specific hashtags for example, #LifeWave, all photos with this hashtag will appear and allows you to follow different accounts.
The ease of using Instagram to build your network is fantastic, by using hashtags throughout your post, you can reach a huge audience and continually growing your network.
Social media is constantly developing, we all know the most popular, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. But do you know about the tools hidden within these platforms that can make a huge difference to you for growing your network?
Let us look at Facebook, over one billion people are signed up with accounts to this fantastic website. That means potentially growing your network to over one billion people, by sitting behind your computer in the comfort of your own home. Sounds great, right?
Well that’s just one network. An incredible tool on Facebook is Facebook Live. This live streaming tool makes it simple to connect with your network.
A tip is to post that you will be hosting a Facebook Live event and discussing certain products and/or how to use these products. For example, creating a Facebook Live event and discussing the importance of taking supplements such as Theta Pure for a more balanced diet and the benefits of this can help promote your products but also grow your network as people can invite their friends to the Facebook Live event. This is an excellent tool that can be under-utilised at times.
Another excellent feature of this tool is the power of notifying your audience when the Facebook Live begins so they can tune in. Creating events and groups on this platform also helps to grow your network, with great succession in “Hints and Tips” groups where users share and offer advice. These simple, easy-to-use tools can really make a difference to your online presence while developing your network at the same time!
- Sharing the Product with others
Share, share and share some more. At LifeWave our products often speak for themselves. Network marketers are required to engage their consumers by sharing and help your recruits to share our products with others too.
- Lack of passion
As a network marketer, it is necessary to love what you do. Motivate yourself and always remember your goals. When you love the products you are selling, and have first-hand experience of using them, it’s a lot easier to sell to others. Get out there and share your personal experience – your passion will be your best-selling tool. In other words, become a product of the product.
- Success is in the Follow-up
It can be discouraging when you show someone a product for the first time and they say no. You may want to give up, but you should not despair – success is in the follow-up. It is necessary to follow up those who said that they might be interested to try later. Sometimes the ‘no’ might actually mean not at that very moment but maybe later. Try your luck and get back to your potential buyer later.
Most people join network marketing companies in the hope of earning a little bit of extra cash to supplement the income they earn from their full-time job. Many find, that once they enter the world of network marketing, their eyes are opened to the huge benefits, not only financially, but to their entire lifestyle.
So, the next step many find themselves doing is quitting their 9-5 day job and focusing on their network marketing efforts full time.
Follow the general guidelines below to answer the question of whether you’re ready to quit your day job and go full time in network.
- Take your Time
Choosing if/ when you pack in the day job for a network marketing career is a huge decision. Take your time, don’t rush and talk with others in the business that have done the same to ensure you have all the information you need.
- Get Advice
LifeWave leaders are there to help and guide you – they know what they are doing. Reach out to your leader for any guidance you may need.
- Don’t Move Too Early
Even if you’re successful early on in your network marketing career, don’t rush. Make sure you build your business up before running out of the office door. You’ll only put too much pressure on yourself. Set out a plan and execute it at a pace that works for you and your lifestyle.
Of course, it is always a personal decision whether you move from part-time work to full time with network marketing, but it is certainly a dream worth pursuing if you are willing to work for it.
