What to post in your Facebook Group to Get Sales


“You have to learn how to attract people to you.”


Mandy Podlesny


The topic of Podcast 151 is what to post in your Facebook group to get orders and not be spammy. When people have their own Facebook group they usually do one of two things. They either turn it into their own spammy infomercial where the whole post is “buy my stuff,” or they don’t want to do that at all and they go to the total opposite side of the spectrum and they talk about value and bring in a community but they don’t know how to talk about their product.


Brooke and Mandy Podlesny (Mandy P) have a conversation about what you can do and how to position yourself as the expert and still get sales from your Facebook group.


“The amazing thing about network marketing is you can just be yourself and whatever avenue and direction you want to go, pour gas on that and go do it.” - Mandy Podlesny.


Do what really, really works for you and what feels good to you. Don't try to like be everything else someone else is. Nobody comes to Facebook or Instagram or any social media with their credit card in their hand being like, “Okay, I'm ready to buy your stuff now.” You want to create curiosity to get people to comment and engage, then go have conversations in the DM.

One way to utilize your group is to use the add tag message system. So things that you repeat yourself with, a kit or something that you like that is one of  your top sellers. Do a video on that specific product and then post it in the guide section. Then when someone wants information tag them in it and let them have the responsibility for educating and then follow up.  


It's not our job to manipulate or twist and turn someone into buying a product. It's like, “here's the information I know this will help you or this will be great for you. Do you want it? Yes or no? “ 


If people do say no, don't continue to follow up with them, if they say they're not interested, leave it. 


“Network marketing is netWORK marketing. We have to do work. We have to take it seriously.” - Mandy Podlesny. 


If you're struggling, get a mentor or coach or someone that will show you, coach you, guide you and do it the right way. Understand that it is work. You're not just going to get your luxury vehicle by three posts, right? You have to do follow up and you have to do the work.
