Don't be a spammy network marketer and do a host a post challenge


“ Anytime that you're doing anything for marketing and it's one and done. most of the time, it's spammy. ”


Brooke Elder


In Podcast 153 Brooke shares a special edition of the Spam Squad. Rather than reviewing an actual post, she reviews one of the most spammy strategies that she has ever come across! This strategy is called Host a Post. Not only is it ultimately spammy, but It can get you kicked off of Facebook because it's actually against their policies.


The strategy of Host a Post is to get your eyes in front of more people and have other people post your spam for you. This is not okay! It's bad enough that we have people out there that are posting their own spam, but asking all of your friends to post spam for you? 


“How can we create a different strategy that is still maybe similar but less spammy? ” - Brooke Elder.


Brooke talks about what are the results that you are trying to get from your posts. The end result is to increase your sales, get more customers, get more recruits and ultimately grow your business.


One way to get your friends and their friends and their friends to all see what it is that you offer is to use your Facebook Group. Ask your friends to invite their friends into the group, but you don't just say, “Hey, this group is awesome. You should invite your friends in it too.” That's not how you do it. What you do instead is put together some sort of event, it could be one Facebook live that you're going to do. It could be a three-day event. 


Create your three day event around a topic that solves a problem. The week before your event, talk about it in your group and tell them if you know of anyone else that would be interested in learning about this, make sure you invite them into the group because we want to help as many people to be able to achieve this result.


You can promote that on your personal page and say, “Hey, in my group, this is what I'm doing.”  So now you're getting people there. And you can also say, “if you want to invite other people to this, here's a post that you can post and let other people know that this is what we're going to be talking about.” So you're automatically building your audience. You're building your leads and you're doing it because you are bringing people value. 


On the first day of your event you will just talk about the problem and offer tips on how to solve it. The second day you can offer a solution or product not affiliated with your company. The third day talk about your product, talk about benefit, benefit, benefit of why it is that they need this product and offer a discount.


“If you're ever feeling like you're puking on someone, you're doing it wrong.” - Brooke Elder. 


We serve people by bringing them value by saying, you have a problem. I have a solution. Part of my solution may include network marketing products or joining my team, but I'm going to give you a lot of other options too. It's not about me selling. It's not about you joining my team. It's about me helping you solve the problem that you have. When you come from that sort of mindset, that's when your business is really going to explode.
