Don’t be a vulture

Don’t be a vulture!!!

I’m not going to name any businesses in this post, you can draw your own conclusions.

This isn’t the point of this post.

I see a pattern repeating itself here. A business goes through a major change for one reason or another.The vultures are just circling round waiting to pounce on those that have been hit hard by a major change.

Instead of leaping in and thinking you are being “a knight in shining armour” by pointing people to your business opportunity.

Take a moment to think, these people are not in the right frame of mind to make a decision about what they’re going to do in the future.

Back off and give them room to breathe.

These people may not even have the funds to get involved in your business, unless you are in a position to pay it forward to get them started.

So be an ethical marketer and not be a vulture.

Top 4 tips for using Facebook groups

Top 4 tips for using Facebook Groups

Here are my four top tips for using Facebook Groups

1. Read the rules

Before you start posting read the rules of the group. Basically how the admin of the group would like you to conduct yourself. These rules could be found in a few places:

  • In the cover page at the top of the group
  • In the description
  • In a pinned post at the top of the group

2. Tagging someone in a post

If you tag someone into a post in a group and their name is greyed out that means they are not a member of the group. Remember to add them to the groupĀ beforeĀ you tag them in a post. They won’t be able to see your post until they do if the group is closed or secret

3. Post an intro

If you are new to a group, post an intro, basically tell the group who you are and how you found the group e.g. whether you found the group via the search function or someone invited you into the group and what knowledge you expect to gain from being a member of the group.

4. Engagement

Once you’ve posted your intro, engage with other members:

  • Help them out with any issues they may have
  • Like and comment on posts
  • Share your knowledge

Leave a comment below with your tips for using Facebook groups. I look forward to reading them

Take Care
