Don't Pimp Your Company
“We don't want to pimp out our company because no one cares.”
Today’s podcast, 156, is another episode of the Spam Squad. Brooke takes an actual ad she found on Facebook and breaks it down and talks about why, what you should do and what you shouldn't do when it comes to posting about your company.
We are all very selfish and we really just care about ourselves, so no one cares about your company. When you talk about the growth that your company has accomplished in the last three years, it only attracts the people who want to jump on that bandwagon and are looking for a get rich quick scenario.
“I would much rather have 5 to 10 freaking awesome business builders, then a thousand downline that you have to babysit.” - Brooke Elder
So what does a recruiting post look like that is not spammy? The first step is to create and engaging post and tell them that you have been building your business. It’s important to let people know there's work involved, because it does take work!
If you presented it as, “Hey, earn money, have trips, have fun, do this,” that's great, but when you do that, you get the people who that's all they want to do and they actually don't want to work.
Then you turn around on them because yes, it's about me, about what I just did, but you're going to ask about them. That’s arrows out marketing. Ask questions to your audience about things they have done to build their business or things they have accomplished.
Once you start getting all of the comments coming through on this engaging post, you can either comment on the post or you can create another post.
Since most people are using Facebook to do their posting, Brooke talks about the strategy of using algorithms on Facebook. You need to be picky about who you recruit on your team. Make it like a job application and map out the qualities and characteristics that you are looking for.
“When you actually have strategy behind what you're doing on social media, you're going to get way better results.” - Brooke Elder
If you are authentic and direct in your posting you're going to be attracting the right people. You're going to get business builders not those people who are just tire kickers or kit snatchers. That's not them, so you’re not going to have them on your team and it's going to make it so much easier.
