In the home party business or managing independent sales consultants?
Facebook is absolutely critical tool to attract new customers and prospects, and build relationships with them and your team or down line. It's easy to do, but there are some things you need to avoid so you do not inadvertently turn those customers and prospects away from you.
Some things you should NOT post on Facebook walls:
-Do not try to close a sale
-Do not pick a party, meeting or appointment date
-Do not nag about them for not responding, not booking, not performing not calling
-Do not go into details about any business transaction(s)
-Do not openly manage your team member(s)
-Do not post too many 'commercial' messages about your business in a row or too many times in one day (this is the fastest way for your friends and/or followers to 'hide' you in their feed) Once or twice a week is good.
-Do not hostess coach or business coach in detail (i.e. "How many guests do you have coming?")
-Do not clog up your own Wall with too many Facebook application updates/posts, and most specifically Facebook games.
The Facebook Wall is there to build relationships, to get people interested in you and what you do.
What to do if someone starts asking for details about anything, including wanting to have a home party, learn about your business opportunity? Simply respond with "check your inbox" and send them the response as a private message instead.
Again, once you get an interest, the conversation should go to 'Inbox' and sent as a private message.
