Are You A Smart Facebook Marketer or Spammer?

Facebook, like other social media, is a great place to connect with friends, family, colleagues and business partners. It is also a goldmine for internet marketers because of its viral nature. Doing it right will get you 10, 20 or even more leads per day for your business. Sweet huh? However, if you are not careful, you will get your account suspended and blacklisted by Facebook.

So what is the correct way to do Facebook marketing? There is no right or wrong answer. The principle to keep in mind is do not do anything to others that you don’t want others to do upon you. Things like posting advertisements on other people’s walls for example. I hate it when people do that to me.

A few things you should do on facebook are:

1. Create an interesting profile – People like interesting people. Therefore you have to make sure you have good pictures and good description on your profile.

2. Have a unique presence – If you are on facebook to market yourself, you need to be unique. You have to look at things at a different angle and market yourself in a unique way. If you appear to be a “me-too” marketing coach, no one will be interested in listening to you.

3. Interact and make friends with people – People go to facebook to make friends and socialise. We also know that people like to do business with people they know. Therefore you need to make friends and get to know other people first before pitching your businesses.

4. Be fun, sociable, interesting, encouraging and informative – There is nothing more I need to say here. You just have to imagine what type of person you like to hang out with.

There are a few big No’s for facebook marketing and these include:

1. Post advertisements on others’ walls – If you do this, you will definitely lose a few friends. I make a point to remove people from my friends’ list if I don’t know them that well and they start  posting their business opportunities links on my wall.

2. Write the same marketing messages in many groups – You are not going to annoy many people by doing this but you may get your account suspended. Any repetitive activities are viewed as spam by Facebook’s autobot.
