Is social media driving you crazy?

Don’t really understand where to go?

Don’t really understand what to do next?

Wondering how you’re supposed to work social media?

 

Well, today I want to share with you three real simple concepts that, put into place with the right tools and the right systems, will allow social media to generate all the business you are ever going to want.

 

But these principles are not anything new.

They are not anything that salespeople don’t already understand.

And they are not anything that can or should scare you.

 

Let’s take a look at the 3 simple keys to success with social media.

 

1/       You need the numbers.

 

How do you get the numbers in social media?

You’ve got to build the connections.

You’ve got to connect with people.

Whether it is LinkedIn connections,

Facebook friends or

Twitter followers…

 

Or whatever they are called in your selected social media tool.

 

First you have to build the connections.

Until you have a connection, you have not started.

 

 

2/       You have to build relationships

 

People are always saying to me, “Well, I’ve got 500/1000/1500 LinkedIn connections.”

Listen.

I don’t care how many you’ve got – how many relationships do you have with those connections?

Do you get it? That is the true question.

You can have a million connections, but if you have no relationships, you don’t have anything.

 

You see, sales is still a relationship game.

So how many relationships do you have in that number of connections?

 

Because, you see, the second step is you’ve now got to take that connection, follower or friend, and build a relationship.

Just like in real life.

Social media is still about relationships.

 

And if you can turn that connection into a relationship?

 

If you can build a relationship with the person or people you are connected with, then you get to point three.

 

 

3/       You close some business or a partnership or a referral network.

 

Somehow, because you connected and built a relationship, there are dollars at the end of the rainbow.

 

These 3 things are what people don’t seem to understand about social media.

These 3 things are what we have been doing in sales since time began.

They are the simple principles of selling.

 

It doesn’t matter if it is social media or any other process.

You have to…

 

1/        Connect.

2/        Build a relationship.

3/        Close some business.

 

So get out there and do it.

This is what we help people to do.

 

Whether it’s through social media or any other platform.
