Facebook Down, Instagram WhatsApp Too; DDos Attack

Today Facebook and it’s family of social media platforms are down; Facebook Down, Instagram Down, WhatsApp is down too. The outages apparently the result of a DDos Attack. Not too long ago I cut a video that you can see below, about why Facebook Sucks for Network Marketers. I feel that too many people in network marketing rely on this platform ‘only’, and tune out other options to use, while building. Along with the attraction to automation, networkers are losing the much needed human touch.

Plus with Facebook Down, and others you see how fragile your business can be.

“if”, this is how you’re building your business.  That facebook “Live” you were using isn’t going out to most of your audience today. The IG TV show you put together to launch your business, also failed you today. A while back, sites using facebook as a way for members to login, were unable to serve their customer bases. (Because users could not log in.)

Throughout the years, it’s grown too popular and far too powerful. I no longer use their ‘comment section’, so that our site is not going to go down, when Facebook is.

With Facebook down, we get lessons on ‘all your eggs in one basket’. This is an argument for diversity, and decentralization. more than likely Facebook, IG and WhatsApp will recover from this DDos Attack. Knowing these can happen at any time however, should make you, think more deeply about your approach to building.

Use TheConversionPros to build lead capture pages, landing pages, and use their auto responders to Market ‘directly’ to your leads through email.  Email marketing is a lost art. I guess the argument is, people don’t read their emails anymore.  It’s not a lie though.

Readers are leaders and frankly, the industry is missing Leaders … who Read ….

We used to recommend ‘building through our 1mlmsystem Live Office’, but now we have “The Secret Office”.  All part of The Rich Man’s Plan from TNG, it is a similar concept. When building, you and I have to get prospects ‘out’ of environments with distractions. Back in the day that meant going to a hotel conference room, or ballroom meeting. Pulling people out of environments that distract them, help you build better teams. Teams of people who will read email they see, from you.

While facebook down trends, and jokes are made on twitter, lessons await to teach the Student who is Ready.

This user isn’t joking, they’re… very frustrated.

Again, this is what happens when people don’t spread themselves out. Again, I’m the guy who blamed ‘the people’ when Crazygood went out of business. I said people using it, did not place value on using the network. They all kept putting value on Facebook. That ‘same energy’ has gone into instagram, and that’s why facebook bought them. When TSU rolled out, the same thing happened again.  Folks didn’t use it ‘like they used’ facebook.  Too many people treated it like something different, and that’s why it went out of business.

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

No Holes In Your Matrix

I can remember it very clear, about a year ago this ‘idea’ of social networks that pay rolled out. One of the first I saw was YourNight.

I’m not aware of any others that were doing this – so like many people I joined….. there was a small fee of $10/mo – which I felt was pretty affordable however, I never paid.

I simply used the site free, told a few people, and referred a handful of others – none of them paid either – So in the few short weeks I was promoting the site, I made absolutely no money. This is not about Yournight, so I do not want to spend much time on it. There were a few people who did Very well; they enrolled Thousands, and some of them paid – and so those teams made some money.

Then, another NEW social network came out – it was called, Aaachoo.

The PITCH that got my attention was this … “No Holes In Your Matrix” – which made perfect sense; Yournight had Holes; If people did not upgrade, they did not make money and neither did you.

So i loved the concept.

That’s truly what I look at when I evaluate a business – their idea, their concept, and their Opportunity; Immediately I and many others saw how THIS would be different; Yet another issue emerged – the Owner.

Steve Stigman will never get my money again.

There is tons of info about the fall of Aaachoo – and so again, I will not linger – just a month after Aaachoo failed misrably … a NEW network emerged…. Crazygood.com – $10/mo – and NO holes In Your Matrix.

I preferred this to the Join for Free and upgrade later – because I know that most will never upgrade later; and if a person is not willing to pay $10/mo for a chance to grow a Serious 6 figure per month income, they’re not serious about making money.

GET MORE Information on Crazygood, to find out why nearly a Year later, I’m So Glad I joined and stuck it out; The $10 investment has worked out to an extra $600 per year – not bad; and the good news is, the earnings continue to go up; Like any GOOD opportunity, Not everyone “see’s” it….

My team and I continue to build and find those who do.

Bottom line is this. I joined Crazygood to make money. I saw a $10 per month opportunity, that paid me every single time I referred a New person; Upfront payment for the Work; No people joining for free – I mean, c’mon it’s $10 … that’s so low it’s LIKE Free! If you are serious about making money, don’t think too hard on this….
