- Friend’s Birthdays
- How to create a customized Facebook friends list
There are a lot of great features to use on Facebook such as the Graph Search or running Facebook Ads to help build your network marketing business. These five Facebook features can be used today and I’m going to explain the advantages and disadvantages of using each.
5 Facebook Features Your Business Should Be Using
1. FB Messenger: “Active/Online Now”
If you’re actively building your network marketing business, you understand the importance of talking with people daily on Facebook, building rapport, and presenting your business opportunity to see if prospects are open to taking a look. So, why not talk with people who are “online now” on Facebook Messenger?
Here’s how you can tell who’s online now on FB Messenger.
Go to your Facebook Messenger and click “ACTIVE” where you’ll see a list of everyone who’s online at the moment. These are people that you can start talking with.
2. Facebook “Voice Messenger”
This is where I want to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of for using Facebook features when building your network marketing business.
The Facebook voice messenger can be a very useful tool for building your network marketing business if you know how to effectively use it.
It’s a great way to communicate with your team or prospects and get to the point quicker to help you save some time. I should emphasize SAVE YOU SOME TIME because sometimes it’s more of a hassle to use this Facebook feature than not.
For example, when I see four voice messages that are all 1 minute long I become furious because I know it’s probably 3 minutes and 50 seconds of rambling and the last 10 seconds is the question they want answered.
Be respectful with this Facebook feature.
So if you’re going to use the Facebook Voice Messenger feature, please be respectful.
On the other hand, the Voice Messenger is great because people can hear your voice and connect with you on a more personable level. They can hear your passion and why you’re so excited about the product or business opportunity. Also, sometimes a text message can be taken out of context and a voice message can prevent any communication problems.
Another disadvantage – if your voice carries a high-pitched tonality (or is annoying…I’m sorry, I did just go there) then it can be a disadvantage to your business. Be sure to watch the video above where I explain the tonality of your voice and how that affects your business.
3. “On This Day”
Here’s a really cool Facebook feature you can be using for your network marketing business. It’s called On This Day.
It’s always important to remember where you came from and what feelings you were going through throughout your network marketing career. On This Day shares posts you made through the years of Facebook that you made each year on that specific day.
Share Your Journey
Sharing your journey in your network marketing business shows people how REAL you are and that it took a lot of work to get to where you are. Also, this shows your team what it looks like to start from the beginning to where you are now.
4. Happy Birthday Messages
This Facebook features absolutely saves my life because I will ALWAYS know when my friends’ birthdays are. However, it’s a great feature to use on Facebook to help build your network marketing business because you can shoot out “Happy Birthday messages!” to continuously being talking and building relationships with people.
To see your friends‘ upcoming birthdays:
- Click Events on the left side of your homepage.
- In the top right you’ll see Birthdays This Week.
- Click See All to see all upcoming birthdays.
5. Create a Custom Facebook Friend’s List
Like I said in the video above, this is a very awesome feature to use if you want to save time, build a relationship with your prospects, and see how the top distributors in your company are using Facebook to grow their network marketing business.
To create a new friend list, follow these steps:
- On your Facebook home page, scroll down the left sidebar to the Friends section.
- Mouseover the word Friends and click the More button. Your news feed changes to show you the lists you currently have.
- Click the Create List button. A new dialog box appears.
- Name your new list and add members. To add a new member, start typing the name of the person you want to add and Facebook will start listing your friends with that name. Choose the correct person from the list and start typing the next name. Continue this until your list is complete.
- Click the Create button. Facebook automatically switches to a news feed showing the updates from just the people in your list.
Tip: When you accept a new friend request on Facebook, you’re immediately taken to that person’s personal profile page. To add your new friend to a particular list, click the Friends button (you’ll see it under their big cover photo). From the options, choose the list you want to add this friend to. You can also choose to create a new list to add them to.
These are just a few of the best Facebook features to start implementing in your network marketing business and teach your team to use as well.
