Choosing Your HASHTAGS

Millions of tweets and posts are sent every single day so it’s easy for your content to get lost. This is where hashtags come in. You place these on your posts (either in the comments or the post copy) to bring more traffic and eyes to YOUR content.

Here are some hashtag ideas that you could use on your posts. Create up to 10, as Social Media statistics indicate that posts with around 10 hashtags tend to perform the best.

Week 3: Grow Your Community, Grow Your Sales With Facebook Groups

10 Tips for AVOIDING FACEBOOK JAIL Facebook Jail happens when Facebook punishes an account for breaking their laws or going against their rules. They could suspend or even disable your account so follow these tips to avoid Facebook Jail.

1 2

LET SOME TIME PASS BETWEEN POSTS Post after post tags you as spam, so use a scheduling app or take a break in between each post.

MAKE SURE TO CREATE SOME ORIGINAL CONTENT AND VIDEOS Facebook flags photos that were taken right from online search results or other sources so make sure to be creating your own content as well.

3 4

DON’T ADD PEOPLE TO GROUPS WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT If someone wasn’t expecting your group invite, they probably won’t accept, which could flag you as spam if it happens too much.

MAKE SURE YOUR BUSINESS IS A PAGE AND NOT YOUR PERSONAL PROFILE Facebook can tell if your human profile is being used as a business so don’t even bother going there.

5

DON’T SEND FRIEND REQUESTS TO PEOPLE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY CONNECTION TO At least message or connect with people first because a lot of deleted requests from you could flag your profile. p. 14


Week 3: Grow Your Community, Grow Your Sales With Facebook Groups

6

DON’T PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS PAGE ON OTHER PEOPLE’S BUSINESS PAGES This is seen as spammy to everyone so just be careful where you promote your business.

7 8

USE SHORTENED LINKS WHEN YOU PROMOTE YOUR PAGE When Facebook sees your business link over and over again, it gets marked, while using shortened links are different each time, avoiding that spam effect.

DON’T TAG PEOPLE DIRECTLY IN IMAGES IF THEY AREN’T IN THEM You can simply mention someone in the comments below, rather than a direct tag.

9

DON’T POST THE SAME CONTENT TO MULTIPLE GROUPS AT ONE TIME Sending out the same content to different groups rapidly, can get you behind bars.

10

DON'T SEND TOO MANY PRIVATE MESSAGES AT ONE TIME You may be excited for a new product that's out but sending out messages in a quick-fire fashion can get you marked with spam which lands you in a Facebook jam.

Week 3: Grow Your Community, Grow Your Sales With Facebook Groups

Setting Up Your Facebook Group

WITH A STRATEGY You want to create a community with your Facebook group. One that builds trust and relationships with people. People that could potentially be your customers one day. In order to make this happen, you need to follow these strategic steps to setting up and growing your Facebook group to attract your ideal customers.

STEP

1 - Attraction

Start with the basics. Think about who it is that you want in your group, who you would want to be a part of your community and to be your customer. Answer these questions to help define your target audience.

WHAT ARE THEIR INTERESTS? Examples: Shopping, beauty, health.

WHAT DO THEY VALUE MOST? Examples: Family, travel, home.

WHAT ARE THEIR CHALLENGES? Examples: Not enough time in the day to eat healthy, aging skin, balancing work and family.

HOW CAN YOU SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS? Examples: Your product, your tips and suggestions.

p. 16


Week 3: Grow Your Community, Grow Your Sales With Facebook Groups

STEP

2 - Optimization

Now that you know who you want in your group, you need to know why they are there. Develop a clear path to your desired goal, which is to generate sales. Here are some ideas to optimize your group member’s path to a sale.

» Think about what value are you offering your members and how you are going to turn them into a customer.

» Create engaging content to help build relationships. Examples include polls, live videos and posts that help answer their challenges discussed in Step 1.

» Define how your content and engagement from the posts are going to result in a group member going to your online store to make a purchase.

» Tip: Make sure to link to your website when you are offering tips that relate to it.

STEP

3 - Growth

Keep your group and your business moving forward. What ways can you make it grow even more? Here a few things to try. Check off the boxes as you complete them. Encourage influential people to join. Find influencers in your community, share a post or article of theirs in the group and credit them. They may like what you are doing and decide to join too. Promote the group on your business page. Share your new group on your business pages and other social media accounts. Create member-only content. Offer an exclusive PDF and save it in the FILES of your group with tips relating to your field. They can only access this by joining your group. Cross promote with other groups. Find similar groups, message with the admin if they’d like to promote you in exchange for you to do the same. It helps to do groups with a similar number of followings.

7 Ways to Provide EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE Customer comments, especially complaints are being channeled more and more through social media. This means it is vital that you handle your responses appropriately to maintain a great image for your audience. Here’s how to keep a positive social media presence via your customer responses.

1

MONITOR ALL SOCIAL CHANNELS Customers may reach out to you via email, Facebook comment, message, Instagram, Twitter, anywhere really. Be sure to have your notifications on so you can respond accordingly.

2

ESTABLISH YOUR TONE

3

RESPOND QUICKLY

4

EXPECT NO PERSONAL GAIN

Make sure you have a friendly, or even humorous tone when dealing with your customers. Be sure it’s always positive, especially when dealing with a problem.

People expect a quick response on social media. When you respond quickly, it shows that you are responsible and dependable. People like to purchase from companies they can trust.

If someone comments on your post, it’s a good idea to acknowledge them even if it seems like you’re not getting anything from it. In retrospect you are getting something from it, you’re building a good rapport with your customers. Example:

6

ALWAYS PROVIDE A RESPONSE

If someone comments that they like something, perhaps surprise them and tell them you’re going to go ahead and send them a sample.

Even if it’s a complaint or a negative comment, be sure to respond. If you don’t it looks like you are trying to ignore the issue and makes the customer even more angry. Be sure to be understanding and kind when responding, acknowledging the concern and hopefully solving the issue. Example:

7

CORRECT INACCURATE STATEMENTS Always use Avon-approved product and earnings claims in your social media posts. If someone posts a misleading or inaccurate comment on your page, make sure to correct them with a reply or remove the post.

Week 8: Take Everything You’ve Learned And Use It To Majorly Build Your Team

Social Selling Series TAKEAWAY This comprehensive training series was designed to help you get started with and grow your business on social media. Using the techniques you learned, the goal is to help you create your own personal brand and open up a new world of selling on social media. Below we recap the highlights from each topic. Read these through and then complete the quiz on the last page.

STRATEGY 1

Decide the message you want to convey to your followers. WHY are you doing this? What are the problems you are trying to solve? Make sure each post relates back to this message. Ask yourself this question: Do my posts help my audience solve their problem? Use a calendar to plan out your month in advance, making sure each post has a purpose.

2

You are your own brand so remember to represent yourself in the best possible way. Ask yourself, who are you? How are you perceived? Determine your business name, your look and feel, your motto and your message. Know yourself and know who your users are.

3

Determine the best possible place to share your messages, whether that is your Facebook business page, personal profile or group. Your business page is for your BUSINESS. Please do not try to sell your business strictly on your personal profile, as Facebook not only doesn't like that, but your friends probably don’t either. Use your group for starting conversations, leading people back to your business page. Visit our Handout from Webinar 1 for more.

CONTENT 1

Your tone of voice is very important not only in face-to-face conversations, but online as well. When posting online, you want to be genuine and authentic, sharing what you are passionate about and why you are passionate about your product. Do NOT be that person that is pushing your business on other people and only posting sales materials.

2

Post often and post consistently. 1-3 times a day is a great goal. There are many ways to create content, whether that is sharing an article, creating a video or creating your own photos. Just remember to always use the 80/20 rule when posting to social media. Only 20% of your posts should be “selling” your product, while 80% of your posts should be varying content related to your industry. This may include motivational quotes, behind-the-scenes videos, product tutorials, industry-related advice.

3

Make your content engaging and diverse, posting images and videos. Ask your followers questions, give them polls in your group, do contests, involve them as best you can. Visit our Handout from Webinar 2 for more. p. 39


Week 8: Take Everything You’ve Learned And Use It To Majorly Build Your Team

FACEBOOK GROUPS 1

We are moving away from a broadcasting marketing model to a participation economy, which a Facebook group allows you to do. The goal of a group is to create a community, based on your niche or passion. It is a place for people to discuss and engage with each other, building your online relationships.

2

In order to create a successful group, you need to determine who your target audience is that you would like to join. Then, you need to optimize the group, providing them with useful information and then leading them down a careful path to a sale. Finally, you want to continue to grow your group, creating new prospect and leads in your sales funnel.

3

Avoid Facebook jail by following a few easy rules. Don’t boost extremely salesy content. Eg. “I need 5 members to join my team now.” Don’t post the same thing over and over again in multiple locations. Don’t message everyone you know with the same sales message pushing your product.

When it comes to engaging with people on social media, you want to be PROACTIVE. Start conversations with your followers and friends. Comment on other people’s posts, like other pages that interest you, join groups that you relate to. You never know, they just may follow or comment right back.

2

ALWAYS respond to any interaction you get on social media, whether it’s a comment or a like, make sure to thank them or keep the discussion going. You can even send them a direct message thanking them (but do NOT sell them, as you are simply building your relationship now).

3

Even if you have a negative comment or reaction, respond to them in a positive manner. This shows them you care and shows others that you want to resolve any issue. Visit our Handout from Webinar 4 for more.

INSTAGRAM 1

Connecting your Instagram and Facebook business accounts is a great way to reach even more people. It’s easy to connect the two and share your Instagram posts on Facebook with just the click of a button.

Instagram is a very visual platform so it’s a great place to showcase your products and get your fans engaged. With a few key pointers, you can really grow your audience. Eg. Add your store link to your bio and using hashtags.

Speaking of engagement, you can use your Instagram and Facebook business page Insights to see how many people your post is reaching and how many people are actually engaging with your content. This is a great way to help determine what pieces of content perform the best for you. Visit our Handout from Webinar 5 for more. p. 40

There are many different ways to advertise on Facebook, including a campaign promoting your page or your website and the ability to “boost” a single post or event.

Week 8: Take Everything You’ve Learned And Use It To Majorly Build Your Team

QUIZ ANSWERS 1

What is the purpose of strategically scheduling out your posts ahead of time? This makes you think about how often you will be pushing your product, how to relate additional content to your industry and how to present your business consistently as a whole. Without a strategy or real direction, it’s hard to measure your success or know what you are really trying to do.

2

How much of your content should be a hard sale? Eg. “This product is my favorite and it’s only $19.99 this month!”

Only 20% of your posts should be directly promoting a product. It’s ok to show products in other ways, like a demonstration or tutorial, but no one likes to constantly feel sold to. Show your personality and engage your audience with other types of content. Make your page a value-add to their life.

3

What is the main goal of a Facebook group? The goal is to create a community, based on your niche or passion. It is a place for people to discuss and engage with each other, building your online relationships and hopefully sales.

4

What is the key to customer service and building online relationships? You want to be PROACTIVE on social media by starting conversations with others. This will build your online presence and bring awareness to your own business.

5

What is the advantage of connecting your Instagram and Facebook accounts? When you post to both accounts, you increase how many people are seeing your content. Plus, it’s super easy to share your Instagram post to your Facebook page with just the click of a button.

6

What is one of the best ways to start incorporating videos into your social media strategy? Facebook Live videos are such an economical and easy way to add videos to your social media. Once you have done a video, you can save it to your page for everyone to see, even after the Live is completed.

7

What is the benefit of Facebook Advertising? There are many different benefits of Facebook advertising, depending on your goal. It can help drive people to your website, gain fans and likes on your page and increase the amount of people that see each of your posts. It’s not necessary, but it is a great way to help you reach your business goals.
