One of the most important tools I use to help build my network is to read every tweet I see, every Facebook post, and most importantly, every LinkedIn post. Even though this is one of my least favorite things to do, I find it to be incredibly helpful when it comes to building new relationships and knowing what type of people are out there.
LinkedIn is the most valuable networking platform on the web. We all have a LinkedIn page, and we all have a lot of friends on LinkedIn. However, each of these people has just one or two connections on LinkedIn and their connections are usually in the same industry. This means that these connections are likely to be a bit more local to what you do than those on LinkedIn. Because of this, it’s important that you make sure that you are building these connections yourself.
That’s why I recommend using LinkedIn as a source for “one-to-one” connections. This means that the people you follow on LinkedIn are the ones that you want to reach out to for one-to-one social media posts (not a phone call, email, or the like).
One of the reasons that you may want to avoid phone calls is because you can only do so much. Phone calls are usually very expensive and can be a little intimidating to the one on the other end of the phone because you don’t know what you’re talking about. That’s especially true if you’re trying to sell your services to someone, or you’re trying to make a sale to someone who is thinking about contacting you.
Theres a 70/20 rule that i think applies to social media more than phone calls. If you want to have a conversation, you need to have 60% of your conversation be face-to-face. Thats why we are so comfortable with face-to-face meetings, we can talk to each other in the same space.
Yeah and you also need to have 60 of your conversation be face-to-face. If youre trying to sell your services, your phone is your business card. So why should you be the one who has to make the sales calls? Why not do it over the phone? That way you can meet face-to-face and make a connection.
Thats why you need to have 60 of your conversation be face-to-face. If youre trying to sell your services, your phone is your business card.
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and other social media accounts are all great places to advertise. You don’t have to be some sort of salesperson, but being able to advertise in person might just be a way of bringing in some new business.
Of course, we know the problem with this approach because it’s all about the numbers. With a typical phone call, you can hit 60 sales calls in a day, but if you’re having to make the calls, you’re not going to make any sales. Plus, you might be doing it yourself.
Thats why we made 70 20 10 Rule. It’s a rule about how to get the most number of social media accounts from a single person. To achieve this, we split up the time between two people and ask them to make 60 sales calls per day. Then we ask them to use the accounts for 60 days to ask people to buy products from the company. The other 60 day period we ask that person to use the company account to ask people to buy products from the company.
