Go through your featured images

If you are doing your business and marketing on Facebook. ,ake sure to have the right kind of images showing among your featured images. Only have pictures involving positive quotes/mindset pictures of yourself in which you are showing your lifestyle in. You may also want to include images of the services and products you offer among those images. Because again, you want your social profiles to look professional.

Do not be in a hurry.

Do not be in a hurry making that sale. First you need to connect with them and create a relationship with them by getting to know them better. You should have been chatting at least for one week with them before sharing any of your businesses and offers. Ask them about what they love doing and how they are doing and so on. If they should share about what they are struggling with then show that you can relate to their so called pain. If they say that they are struggling to make money then show that you can understand where they are coming from. Because you probably have struggled personally yourself at one point in your career. So that is a real true fact that you will have in common. Speaking of that having things in common; do not regard every prospect as a good potential business partner. Because if you do not have anything at all in common and do not share the same kind of views on mindset and so on, then that is not someone that you want to be partnering with in business. especially not if you notice that they have a really negative mindset.

Type of content

The types of post and content you should create is within 3 category’s Lifestyle post, motivational post, result posts and post where you share value and teach people something.. About result posts, do not post those too often but it is okay to post them every now and then. This to make people more interested in your business and offers. Make at least one post a day , try to make it two post a day. This to get more so called ” eye balls” on your profile and content. A thing to have in mind is never to post anything about politics and religion, that can be sensitive subjects. So avoid those two subjects.
