[FB Group Challenge #7] The 7 Perfect Facebook Status Updates

OK, welcome to lesson 7 of The 10 Leads in 10 Days Facebook Group Challenge.

If you've missed any of the other lessons, you can find them here…

If you want to get more traffic, leads, prospects, and engagement on Facebook then you need to create the right kind of content each day…

Two posts per day to begin with…

  • 1 x Value Based Post where you teach something you’ve learned recently, or something related to your audience
  • 1 x Engagement Type Post which gets people to comment, engage and interact

When posting on Facebook, in your Facebook group / community or even on your Fan Page or other Social Media accounts, you need to follow the 80/20% rule

80% Value
20% Promotional

Most people promote their business and products far too often, and the only way to build a real long term, sustainable business online is to offer much more value to your prospects than promotional content…

With that said… here are the 7 Perfect Facebook Status update types I prefer…

Perfect Status Update #1:
The “Complete The Blank” Update

People love to complete the blank… they just can't help themselves!

Here's a few ideas of a “complete the blank” update…

I wouldn’t survive a week without ____________

____________ is the reason I get up every morning…

____________ is the most inspiring book I’ve ever read…

I LOVE working for myself because ____________ (Fill in the blank)

My favourite food to cook is ______________ (Fill in the blank)

And feel free to come up with your own types of status updates…

If you want to get more comments and engagement on your posts, then use the complete the blank updates…

But don't go overboard with this!

2-3 “complete the blank” type updates per week is plenty unless you're posting 6 times per day. If that's the case, then you can post a complete the blank question / post every few days…

Ultimately do what feels right for you. If you aren't getting engagement from your posts, then you need to engage with more people yourself…

Make more friends, comment on more stuff from other people and interact and engage!

You'll be amazed at how many people start to see your posts when you do that 🙂

Perfect Status Update #2:
The “Value Post” Update

The “Value Post” is what will help you develop a loyal following over time… ultimately, people are on the Internet looking for information…

They are looking for solutions to problems…

If you have a solution to a problem your audience has, then share part of the solution back to your audience in a Value based post…

Online Network Marketers have problems with:

  • Generating leads…
  • Getting traffic…
  • Finding more prospects to speak to…
  • Getting more sign ups…
  • Making money…
  • Using technology…

Teach something you’ve just learned from a video you’ve watched, a training you’ve attended, or a book you’ve read.

Add free value to people’s lives…

The more value you offer, the more people will follow you and the more prospects and leads you’ll have.

NOTE: When you post something of value on Facebook / Social Media… most of the time you won’t get many comments on the value based posts even though many people will read it.

Don't worry about it… longer value based posts tend to get much fewer comments than “engagement” type posts…

Perfect Status Update #3:
The “Value Video”

This is exactly the same as the “Value Post”… however, with this you share and teach through video…

Keep your videos to 2-5 minute max unless you are very experienced with doing video…

People get bored quickly… and most people tend to watch shorter videos on Facebook instead of longer ones.

As you get more experience with holding people's attention, and as you gradually build a loyal follow and audience, then you can increase the length of your value videos…

If you want to do a longer video that gets more engagement, then do a Facebook Live video… and encourage your viewers to SHARE your video and comment under it 🙂

Video grabs people’s attention on Facebook… and as long as you are teaching / sharing something your target market and audience is looking for, it will get a lot of views!

Perfect Status Update #4:
The “Quick Question” Update

This is an engagement type post…

Very simple…

Not much explanation needed here…

A few examples…

“What is your favourite ice cream?”

“”What’s your middle name?”

“Do you have children, If so, how many?”

“Can you recommend a book I could read?”

Keep the quick questions personal and related to your audience…

Have fun with this one 🙂

If you have a large, engaged audience… you will get a lot of comments here…

If not, then keep working on it!

Perfect Status Update #5:
The “Eye-Catching” Image

Quotes are perfect for this…

Or selfies…

Your goal is to inspire, uplift and motivate people on Social Media.. The more you do this, the more they'll follow you!

So, find an eye-catching image which is copyright free for you to use…

Or SHARE somebody else's image, by hitting the “share” button on Facebook under an image or quote you like…

(You are welcome to SHARE the quote images I post on the fan page here…)

There are plenty of Smart Phone Apps you can use to help you create images with text on…

THREE (3) of the best apps I've found are:

  1. WordSwag
  2. InstaQuote
  3. Typorama

Or there’s Canva, or PicMonkey if you want to create the images on your computer…

You can download copyright free images from websites such as Pixabay 🙂

I created most of the images you'll see on this website and over on my fan page with these apps…

Including this one for #NewFriendFriday

Quick, simple and looks amazing! (I blurred out the people deliberately just so you know 🙂 )

Perfect Status Update #6:
The “Recommend a Resource” Update

If you ever read a really good book… then recommend it…

Maybe you use a really cool tool which helps you with a certain aspect of your business… recommend it.

I recommend tools and resources often and I'm in the process of building up the Networking Superstars Directory here which has cool tools, and resources…

An example here…

The more cool tools / resources you share with your audience, the more they’ll follow you.

This is also a great way to make some extra money on the side while you’re building up your network marketing business.

There are many products and services which have affiliate programs…

Sign up for the affiliate program and you’ll get a tracking link you can share with your audience…

When somebody buys the product / service, you’ll earn a commission.

Websites like JVZoo.com and Clickbank are great for this and they have tons of products and services you can promote…

Plus you can earn INSTANT commission into your Paypal account 🙂 sell the product, make money fast.

Be careful with promoting affiliate products… again, follow the 80/20% rule…

80% free, value based stuff… and 20% paid, or premium products where you use your affiliate link.

Perfect Status Update #7:
The “Curiosity Approach”

Tease people and get them to ask for the link to something they want…

Tell people a little bit about what you have to get them excited, but rather than just giving them a link to go check it out for themselves… actually get them to comment and ask for the link.

Once they’ve commented, then reply to their comment and send them a private message to confirm they still want the link…

This is called “commitment and consistency and the more small little commitments people make in a certain direction, the more likely they are to take the action you want them to…

Here's an example of a post I created recently which created curiosity and got people to comment to say they wanted to copy of the Meditations I was offering

So, maybe you want to sponsor somebody into your business…

Don’t just hit them up with… “hey do you want to join my business”! That NEVER works…

Instead, create curiosity… get people excited… get people to comment, like and share your stuff and give them an “opportunity” to be part of something exciting by selling the benefits without actually telling them what it is up front.

They’ll take lots of little action steps like commenting, replying to your messages, filling out an application, speaking with you on the phone…

…and BOOM! Job done.

Now, don’t make this a “bait and switch” where you pretend to be offering something else and then right at the end you switch it to your business opportunity…

No, no, no… people don’t like that…

But instead, give them little bits of information every step of the way, gradually revealing more and more information… then when you speak with them on the phone, it’s an easy sell because your prospect is already prepared!

=============

Lots and lots of tips and ideas in this post…

Come back to it often.

SHARE it with anybody you know who needs help with better content creation…

Get good at getting engagement on Social Media.

Get comments, likes and shares and before you know it you’ll have a huge audience of people who know you, like you and trust you…

The leads, prospects and sign ups will come flooding to you!

Then when you do have FIVE (5) spaces available for people to join your team and you post about it… as long as you position it the right way, you’ll get a ton of people interested!

Happy days!
