In my previous post I showed you how to set up your profile for success and what to post so that you attract people to you in Facebook.
Today I am going to show you how to actively prospect and get people looking at your business today.
When you reach out to them the first thing they will do is look at your profile and wall. So make sure you have read and implemented my tips from this post: Attract Endless Leads With Facebook before you start prospecting.
The first prospecting scripts and tips I am going to give you are for people on your friends list that already know you. You either know them offline or have chatted with them before online.
If your product has broad appeal, you can approach them right away. We are always sharing information with our friends and family when we see a good movie or get a bargain at the store. This is no different.
You can send them a text, call them or send a private Facebook message. A message on Facebook could even be a voice message to make it more personal.
I hope you are having an awesome day. 🙂

Do you have a few minutes to watch a short video?
Sample script for someone that has like your Facebook post:
Thanks for liking my post. 🙂

Would you like to take a look at it?
You Can Sponsor 2-3 People Each Week. But don’t ever just post a link to someone unless that have asked for it or agreed to it.
When you get a “yes”, find out when they are going to watch the video so you can follow up.
The Follow up:
Ask them: “What did you like best?”
Or: “On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being I’m ready to rock this and 1 being I really don’t see the vision, where do you see yourself?”
If they are ready to get started, then tell them what to do next to get started. “You’re next step is..”
If they really don’t see the vision and are not interested, then say “that’s cool, keep it in mind.”
If they are somewhere in between 2 and 9, then say,
“You must have questions. Let’s talk on the phone.” Then give them your number, ask for theirs and set a time to talk.
It would also be helpful to have an upline leader on the phone when you call them. You can say, “I’m new at this, but I have Kevin on the line and he can answer all your questions.”
You should get to know them a little better first before you approach them about your business. Leave comments on their post and engage with them.
You can use this script to start a conversation:
“Your post just came up in my news feed. We have not chatted in awhile. How are you doing?”
When you get to know them better, you may discover that they have a problem and your product is the solution. That would be a good time to bring up the subject of your business or one of your income streams.
I have a Facebook group for internet marketers. I start conversations and make friends with many of them.
Sometimes they are brand new to their business and really don’t know how to market online.
If you run into that situation, you could recommend a free training or blog post to help them.
Kevin and I learned a lot of what we know about marketing online from The Home Business Academy. That is a system that would be very helpful to a new person.
It is important to continually build your friends, followers and post engagement in Facebook to generate an abundance of leads for your business.
