Getting More People To Share your Social Media Posts

I want to take a few moments to discuss getting more people to share your social media posts. Recently I began using a new social network, TSU – the social network ‘that pays’ you and I for what we’ve been doing for free, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many other social networks. You and I are sharing content daily, in the form of pictures, videos, links to articles we liked online – thoughts and ideas – and all of our Willful Participation creates Billions of Dollars for Social Networking Sites.

Business people have gravitated to these platforms – and in the past 3-4 years we have witnessed people building entire organizations through Social Media – most are achieving this from building a very Large audience. Popular people on social media websites have influence, just like in real life. This is why growing your audience through social media is one of the most important things anyone in business should be doing.

Getting more people to share your social media posts is one of the quickest ways to grow your audience. When our content is shared on social media – we are exposed to more and more people; many will become fans, followers, or friends. They will contribute to sharing our content and will help us generate more fans, followers and friends.

However, while this is the idea – not all business people experience this. While putting together some thoughts On TSU – for the new community there, I decided to dig up some ‘back up’ information to go with what I wanted to share with them, and now you – reading this now. Back in 2010 we released a free training called Social Networking For Money – since joining the new TSU community, it’s never been more relevant than it is now.

As I mentioned earlier, TSU pays us for what we’ve been doing ‘for free’ on other social networks. However the people who make the most money on TSU, are the people who understand ‘good networking’ – which is a fundamental skill and is not something that happens by accident. Good networking is a result of purposely seeking to build new relationships with other people. It involves taking a genuine interest in other people.

But even that is just the beginning – having a ton of good relationships, does not mean that people will share your social media posts! However, if you watched our Training before, or watch our NEW training which is related to TSU; but … works for 100% of social networks out in the socialverse – then you would know that what you share on social media matters!

shit content will always be shit content

Is your Content good or not?

Lots of people are very dishonest when it comes to this question.  Content is King on the internet. It has always been that way and it will continue to be the #1 rule for the foreseeable future. If you want people to share your social media posts then, your posts need to be worth sharing. If no one is sharing your posts – that ‘could’ be the case!

However, there are other variables you’ll want to check first.

Starting with your Audience – How big is it?

Facebook lets you have up to 5,000 friends; TSU also let’s you have up to 5,000 friends – if you have less than 2,000 friends on one or both platforms; Your audience is limited. let’s say you had 5,000 friends on BOTH platforms; your audience is now at 10,000 – so whatever you share is SEEN by a much larger audience than before. You cannot be upset at your shares, when you are only SEEN by a limited audience. The bigger your audience .. the more ‘opportunity’ for other people to share your social media posts.

Build Your Audience Increase Views and Shares

Next, let’s discuss those relationships – How good are they?

Really good relationships take time to develop. You cannot be in a hurry with these – and you often have to spend a fair amount of time Giving – and not Getting anything in Return. I meet people all the time who are afraid to be givers – because they have had bad experiences in the past. I am not here to discount those experiences – not all people who Receive are grateful – and few return those favors; BUT …. it’s those few that you’re looking for. You see, you have to have the right perspective about these things…

When you’re a “Good Networker” – these perspectives come naturally to you. You’re already focused on what you can do for others; You’re not worried about what comes back to you – because it always comes. That’s just how it works – it is the rule; the universal law! What you and I do to and for others; they tend to do to and for us…. OR more accurately; What we do for others; “IT” is done for us; Not always by the person we did it For 😉 – and again, that is the whole point!

How often has someone… a stranger perhaps, offered you something – and you turned it down? Did you not realize it was your Return for what you Gave to Others??

Do you see where I’m getting at?

If you will Share Other people’s posts; other people, eventually, will share yours. Especially if you have good stuff. It’s natural – it is the law. The more you are sharing other people’s stuff, the more you are building relationships and expanding your audience; the better Your content is; the more people will share your social media posts

TSU Social Network Review

The Downside Of Network Marketing (What We Don’t Like To Talk About In MLM)

The Downside Of Network Marketing (What We Don’t Like To Talk About In MLM)

Ever been in a Lockerroom Training with leadership from your MLM or Network Marketing Opportunity? Well if you’ve ever accomplished any level of leadership with a company you will usually find yourself in some ‘leaders only’ meetings. This is where a lot more is shared than what is Usually shared; this is where the conversations get Real Intense. This is where you’ll hear much more about the Downside of Network Marketing.

The downside of Network Marketing is what most do not want to talk about. Instead, most leaders spend their time talking about the upside of Network Marketing; the Opportunity. We call that ‘casting vision’. The vision is realistic too. It encourages you and I to embrace the idea of leverage. That if we employ the efforts of other people, we too can earn the kind of incomes that super successful business owners earn.

This is where you’ll find the downside – when we are relying on the efforts of others; if the others do not produce any results; because they’re not making any efforts to produce results – that leverage does you no good. This is where a lot of leaders wind up; They get started with a bang, make money, build a team – and suddenly the network is pulled apart. They find out the people who’s ‘efforts’ they’ve leveraged have decided that they no longer want to promote ‘that company’ anymore; They want to do different things.

This is the downside of network marketing – relying on other people. Leverage :: you see this concept works in the Corporate world because you are literally ’employing’ people by giving them a wage; an hourly, linear wage. you, the business owner pay them a salary to produce (and make efforts to produce) — or else they will Lose that wage.

People, who are easily enslaved by comfort like this; will stay at that place of employment because they can depend on that paycheck. Most won’t look for ‘better paying jobs” – although some will. Almost none are looking at investments; or ‘income opportunities’ – and what keeps happening lately is, more and more of the people who Are joining MLM are bringing this Employment Mentality with them.

This isn’t new, it’s always been part of the high attrition rate in network marketing; another downside in some people’s eyes; others simply see it as ‘sorting’; almost like a ‘survival of the fittest’ perception of it. Many are called, but so few are around a year later – this has always been the case. This has always been a downside. The ‘incentives” are just not strong enough. We talk about ‘knowing your why” but so many people never tie that into their ‘reason’ to be in a network marketing venture.

In today’s climate, with so many MLM companies popping up – it’s a constant battle going on of ‘which opportunities to join’ – and with so many people In society having an employee mentality – which is built into us through our school system – what has ended up happening is, most networkers are simply ‘targeting’ other networkers.

They’re not out there going after people who ‘value’ working a job; and getting a steady paycheck, over creating a steady FLOW of income streams – diversified investments that are raining time freedom upon their lives; why not experience wealth? If you don’t like it you can always go back to being BROKE! ……… or, ‘just getting by’ … aka, living paycheck to paycheck. Even though we all know this is not a ‘stable’ way to live; so many of us in society continue to prefer that way of life.

You see it’s a DECISION That people have to make; to LIVE differently!

Until then, they are still a slave to money; they are not free to pursue their MISSION!

our mission in mlm goes beyond the company or the program - we are here to free slaves and change the world 9-5 Wage Slaves living paycheck to paycheck are the key. Their Minds are Imprisoned

This downside of our industry in some folks eyes, is why the DS Domination Affiliate Opportunity has become so popular over the last year – since coming out in late 2012, the DSD opportunity has already helped people retire from their 9-5’s; without relying on other people – this is the draw – this is what’s made this one such a big hit with networkers.

If the people they’ve ‘leveraged’ and ’employed’ – and ‘partnered up with’ – as affiliates of DSD, decide that they’re not going to put any effort into learning how to list, and get sales on ebay; if they decide to quit and try out other income opportunities instead; if they put DSD on the backburner as so many networkers like to call it, it doesn’t stop or block your opportunity to make money on ebay.

There are a lot of people who for a long, long time now, have made their living from ebay. The Chief Vision Officer, Emeritus for the 1mlmsystem, Milton Mouzon Jr., was already making decent income from ebay when I first met him, through the Crazygood income opportunity (Which is no longer in business) – and without broadcasting too much of his personal business, let’s just say he’s doing pretty well on ebay to this day. Well enough to have said bye bye to the 9-5 job world himself; and he’s not even part of the DSD opportunity (at this time).

However, this was something he and I spoke about, in the early pre-launch days of the 1mlmsystem; and it’s something I’m still very open to as leaders emerge within the 1mlmsystem, to share their insights and expertise in several areas of business; but I’ll talk more about that in a different post – my main point is that DS Domination is doing a lot of what I wanted to do – but they honestly did it way better than anything I could’ve thought of.

The creators of the DSD opportunity, Roger, Hitesh, and all the leaders who’ve really blazed a trail and led the way, showing others that YES, you can make money on ebay and not have to rely on recruiting other people; they’ve all done an outstanding job with this one.

Here to announce, that DS Domination is NOW officially a part of the 1mlmsystem – which only makes sense. It fits right into the ultimate vision of our Team. We embrace the new school, and want our team members to have real business skills. We want you to learn SEO and understand how to get more web traffic without having to pay for ads; or lose money on buying stuff you can’t afford. We ant you to ‘scale your business’ in a way that moves you from what you can afford to invest; on a monthly basis. YOU need a budget.

The downside of network marketing that I’ve been writing about here – the Employee mentality – well they are not really budget oriented. Since employees are not thinking about investments, the money they get from those paychecks is usually spent, before they even get those paychecks; this too, happens in network marketing.

People start making money in network marketing and go out and spend it. They don’t think about re-investing it. They’re not thinking about a business budget; a month to month evaluation of what they can actually afford to invest; so they can scale their business up; This is important because, how can you show others the way to make money without a lot of money, by constantly forcing the notion down people’s throats that the ONLY way to make money, is to spend a LOT of it?

These ideas that are prevalent in network marketing today, are confusing and discouraging to most people. It’s counter productive. So instead we encourage our business partners to learn; to grow; to expand their skillsets; Not to be ‘satisfied’ with just getting by; to Change their thought process; To get on a budget; to approach MLM intelligently; to build a team around teamwork and loyalty; so that as we Go forward and GROW forward, we all become stronger. You see if you and I are mastering skills like, how to make money on ebay, how to SEO blogs and websites, how to Use Lists for Effective email Marketing, How to ‘network’ on social networks; and get results – if we create this TEAM of skilled professionals who are working together — how can we NOT make money in multiple places?

That’s why we keep telling you; Think BEYOND The programs;

YES; DSD is going to unleash a beast within; you’re going to start getting ChaChings on your phone;  you’re going to learn how to make money on other platforms; including amazon; You’re going to gain a valuable skillset. But, then what?
