I write this post at 9:30 a.m. and I have already face palmed at least 4 times. That number will only rise through the day as I scroll through my news feed to see endless examples of bad Facebook marketing. It really is becoming unbearable, and if you aren’t noticing it, then you are probably doing it. You are probably here because you are tired of seeing those posts, or you think you might be one of the annoying Facebook marketers out there and want to find a better way. Either way, you are in luck because I will show you a better way. Let’s get to it.
Avoid Bad Facebook Marketing at All Costs
When network marketers set out to let the world know about their amazing products and/or services, they have good intentions. In most cases, they don’t know that what they are doing is actually quite spammy, and will probably not yield very good results. The goal is to generate Facebook leads, but these types of marketing strategies are not sustainable for long term success.
What happens is people start becoming numb/blind to your posts and they skip over them. While the intentions are good, this is the last thing you want to see happen. We all have those friends that we just dread seeing their posts, because we know damn well what it’s gonna be… Try this life changing Plexus, Come Thrive with me, Look at these results from 3 wraps… The list goes on and on. I am in no way saying these products aren’t good, I’m just saying the delivery of the message is broken.
So What’s the Answer?
I could write 20,000 words about marketing on Facebook the right way, but for the sake of brevity I will keep this to a short list of bullet points, then provide you with an option to master these skills at the end. Here are some things you should be doing so you can avoid bad Facebook marketing:
- Create a fan/business page and put your business related posts on there.
- Share those posts from your personal profile. This is the right way to go, and it helps build exposure to your page over and over from your personal profile in a manner that is more professional.
- Brand yourself, not your company. I have friends that switch companies faster than my kids can spill a cup of milk. No one will ever buy anything from you if you are constantly switching brands, and always claiming this one is the best. Brand yourself and build followers so when you decide to jump ship again you can keep these people engaged.
- Less pitching. You know who you are!! Stop pitching your damn products with every single post. You have to mix in some lifestyle posts, or pictures and videos of things you find fun, or just cool stuff you find on the web. This is a case where less is more.
- More value. Instead of just pitching, create posts that can help others. People want to follow others that can help them reach their goals faster.
- Rule – If you think it might be annoying to others, don’t post it!
These are just a FEW of the things I took away from the #1 Facebook marketing training course on the web. I invested hundreds of dollars in that course so I could avoid becoming a bad Facebook marketer. I always feel that investing in yourself is the best type of investment, because the more value you can bring to the table the more success you will find.
That’s about it folks. I hope this post has been helpful. If you think you might be one of the bad ones, take action. You don’t have to be, and you will find if you do things the right way you will get infinitely better results.
