  But there is a right way and a wrong way to have MLM
  success using social media as a tool.                                Think about it…. when you receive multiple times per

  SPAMMING!                                                            It makes you either delete the guilty parties from your

                                                                       worthy every now and again and you would miss it

  Another form of spamming, particularly on Facebook,
  is posting on someones wall their opportunity without
  their permission. Don’t do this!

  Let me offer a few ideas
  that you can utilize for your
  MLM success if you are
  using social media as a tool.

  Building Relationships
  People want to do business with people that they like,
  know and trust. And even though your friends and                     MLM Success
  family probably do like you, you must follow guidelines
  for promoting your opportunity if you desire MLM                     Use common sense when using
  success… even with family and friends.                               social media sites for MLM
  Give Value                                                           success.
  Instead of posting non-stop business links, offer to your            Here are some common sense rules or ideas to follow
  followers useful information. A blog is an excellent way             when engaging with others on social media for MLM
  of doing this. In your blog you can write helpful ideas              success.
  about any range of subjects, including your business
  opportunity. Then just provide a link of your post with              1. Find groups on social media sites that share your
  a short description of the post and share in your social             interests (personal or business) where no business links
  media pages and groups.                                              are allowed to just meet new people and build new
  Encourage Others
                                                                       2. There are social media groups that allow you to post
  Offer encouraging words to others on your social                     your opportunity. But even here I feel that providing
  media sites. This is also an excellent way of building               value in the form of a blog post with helpful information
  relationships. Occasional quotes are excellent for this.             is still better than spamming your opportunity links. I
  Congratulate Other When They Have Success                            believe respect is still key here and will give you more
  Whatever success others may have, people love to be
  congratulated and praised. Offer up congratulations to               3. Ask yourself before you post anything on FaceBook,
  others who are having MLM success.                                   etc:
  Become a problem solver not an annoying pest.                            • Would I want to read this?
  Pay attention to what other people are posting. You may                  • Would this turn me off to this MLM opportunity if

  Comment on other worthy posts.                                       4. Have integrity. Enough said…
