So let’s get some leads happening for you. Are you ready?
Let’s Talk About Leads
There are different types of leads:
I know you want a steady stream of warm/hot leads. But initially, it’s unlikely that you’ll have hot leads. So let’s start at the bottom: cold – lukewarm leads. When you add someone to your group, they will be a lead for you. They may only be lukewarm, but that’s ok.
When you think about it – these people have an interest in your group topic, and you may already know their pain point. So they have a problem, and your group will help them solve it, right? YES! In my book that is a lead. So, every time you add a member to your group you’re generating a lead.
The Best and Fastest Way to Add Members (leads) To Your New Group
The best way to start is with your existing ‘assets.’ What are they? Your Facebook friends. So, check their profiles and look for people who might be good candidates for your group.
In time you’ll learn about other ways to grow your group (e.g. using attraction marketing methods), but for now, I want to keep it simple for you. And I want you to get quick results.
Believe me, this simple approach will get you up and running in no time flat.
Here’s How-To Get Your First 10 Leads In Your Group
Step 1: Choose Which Friends to Target
Just look for people who are specific to your niche. If you’re building teams, you might look for other marketers to target. If you’re promoting a product, you’ll be looking for people who have a need for your type of product.
If you don’t know any of your FB friends personally, check their profile and review their ‘wall’ for clues.
If you haven’t spoken to your friends for a while, check their wall and see what they’ve been up to.
If You Have No Facebook Friends. If you’ve only recently opened your Facebook account, you’ll need to start adding friends. Think of people who would be suitable as friends, but also good candidates for your group.
Step 2: Send Friends a Personal Message
A simple personal message telling your friends about your new group project is all you need. See below for example.
Step 3: Engage With the Responders
Spend a couple of minutes engaging with each friend. A little conversation goes a long way.
Step 4: Send the Link So They Can Join Your Group
If they respond positively, don’t mess about. Send them a link to join your group. Alternatively, add them yourself.
