MORE NETWORKING HELP!!

Free Marketing Strategy Part 1-How to Generate 10-30 Leads Per Day Using Facebook?

Over the past 8 or so years that I have been involved in network marketing I have seen and used different formats to generate leads for my businesses both free and paid. Most people do not have the cash to invest into their home based business especially in the beginning so the free strategy of the day is Facebook.

Facebook is the most powerful social media networking platform out there today and you can use it to generate leads for any business for free. The great thing about Facebook or social networking in general is that it does not matter if you are involved in MLM, direct marketing, affiliate marketing, online or offline business you can easily connect with like-minded individuals and the only thing it will cost you is a little bit of time and effort.

Facebook is-
-Ranked #2 globally by Alexa.com and #3 in the United States
-Gets over 600,000 new signups every single day
-Currently has over 300 million active users. The population of the world is around 6.7 billion so around 4-5% is logged onto one website which is Facebook.

Now I don’t know about you but that information itself is very powerful. Now out of 300 million active users I am sure you can find some people to connect with who are interested in whatever you are promoting. That brings me to this point what should you be promoting on social networks. It is very important that you promote yourself and the value you can bring to whatever industry you are involved in because even though you can meet business partners on Facebook it is still considered a social network so you have to be careful how you go about making connections so that you do not seem like a scammer.

You want people to ask how and what. How do I get results with my business? How do I connect with you? What do I need to do? You do not want people to ask why and who. Why are you bothering me? Who are you?

To use Facebook to your advantage do the opposite of what mostly everyone else is doing. When I look at my Facebook newsfeeds and status updates I see many people promoting the flavor of the month, jumping on one opportunity to the next, promoting 10 businesses at a time, and harassing and chasing everyone on Facebook. No one wants you slamming your network marketing company or business opportunity in their face every time you get a chance.

The most important brand you must promote is the Brand “You”. It is not your favorite home based business. Avoid the mentality I call “The Amusement Park” mentality. I see many networkers with this mentality jumping on one ride to the next and they see the MLM company or business opportunity with the most buzz (the ride with the longest line) and they feel this must be the thing to do. Remember in order to start generating daily leads to your business from Facebook you must provide value. I just wanted to set a foundation on how powerful this free strategy can be if used correctly. In Facebook Free Marketing Strategy Part 1 continued I will touch on what actions you should take and how to go about doing them to generate 10-20+ leads daily on Facebook.

MISTAKES!!!

1. Email Errors

One of the most common goofs we see is an incorrect email address. Since most job search efforts are centered around email communications, having an email address that is wrong or difficult to interpret can be a pothole in the road to success. Double-check your email address to make sure it is correct. Don’t use your work email address on your resume and try to avoid having an email that has the number 1 in it as it can be difficult to tell if it’s a letter or a numeral. Avoid goofy or cutesy email monikers such as vanhalenlvr83 or similar. Email systems that use automated spam authenticators are loathed by recruiters and line managers alike, so stay away from them during you job search. Remember, you can set up an email address that you use JUST for job search.

2. Mechanical Mistakes

Misspellings are the most common mechanical mistake. People rely on spell-check too much. Spell-check can’t tell the difference, though, in meaning. If you write “manger” instead of “manager”, spell-check won’t flag it. Other mechanical problems include verb tense shift and capitalization. It seems like when in doubt, job seekers will capitalize something just “to be on the safe side” but that just creates an error.

3. Fluff Phrases

The profile or summary is often the most difficult section of the resume to create. As a result, job seekers fall back on soft-skill phrases or fluff phrases such as “good communicator” or “hard-working”. These sound good but they tell the reader nothing. These are subjective traits that are opinion-based. You may think you are a good communicator but your peers might say otherwise. These traits will be judged in the interview so don’t load the resume down with these. Remember, 99.9% of all the other candidates will also be claiming these skills. Have you ever heard of anyone putting “bad communicator” or “lazy with sloppy attention to detail” on the resume?

4. Too Much Information (TMI)

Job seekers often forget for whom they are writing. The recruiter or hiring manager is going to be skim-reading the resume and will be looking for the main points. The job seeker, on the other hand, feels it’s necessary to put every bit of information possible in the resume, right down to including that Eagle Scout designation from 1984. Having too much information, or irrelevant information, is a common resume error.

5. Too Little Information (TLI)

The opposite of TMI is TLI – too little information. Being too general in the resume is just as bad as being too wordy. Usually too little information takes the form of no details on achievements. Most people can get their job duties or role descriptions down but falter when it’s time to detail their successes in some sort of quantitative or qualitative way. As a result, the content is thin or bland and doesn’t inspire the reader to make contact with the job seeker.

6. Passive Voice

We are all taught that formal writing is passive voice writing. Most people have a tendency to write in the passive voice, especially when composing their resumes. Passive voice – “responsible for”, “duties included”, etc. – is weak writing. Resumes need to be powerful sales documents and passive voice doesn’t persuade the reader. Make sure the resume is written in active voice with lots of solid keywords throughout the content.

7. Functional Format

Using the functional format (also called a skills resume) is probably the most deadly error you can commit in terms of the resume’s effectiveness. Recruiters and employers literally detest the functional format. It does not give them the information they need in the format they want. Additionally, it generally indicates that the job seeker is trying to hide something since the functional format is used to cover up problems such as date gaps, job hopping, or lack of experience. Just the mere appearance of the functional format is a huge turnoff to decision-makers.

8. Personal Information

The fact that you are an avid skeeball player, or that you collect old world coins has no relevance to whether or not you are qualified for the position. So why include information on hobbies, sports, or interests?

9. Poor Design

The old large-left-margin layout is long out of fashion and fancy designs, images or tables will really give the databases a hard time when you upload your resume. The best thing to do when it comes to design of your resume is KISS – keep it simple, sweetie. Yes, make it appealing, but over designed resumes will get scrambled in uploads, and thus not win interviews.

10. One Page Length

One page resumes are long gone unless you are a new graduate without much experience. Having said that, we still see plenty of one page resumes for more senior job seekers come in for critiques. It does surprise me! When a job seeker tries to limit the content of the resume to fit into one page, he/she is cutting vital information to adhere to a “rule” that is not valid for most resumes. Many resumes (including mid-level) are two pages in length and three pages are acceptable for some senior level candidates.

Thinking Out Loud

Sometimes things happen to us and we have no idea why.  We start going back through our lives and trying to evaluate what it is we did wrong or right.  Who did we hurt.  Should I have done this or that.  Most of us believe in Karma and I believe that is what makes us go back and re think our actions and behaviours. 

I find myself literally always thinking.   Sometimes I get a headache simply because my mind wont shut down.  I go to bed thinking and I wake up thinking.  Sometimes when I wake up early I go into prayer.  Sometimes I don’t, I simply lay there. 

Have you ever had these feelings or is it just me?  Do you have incomplete thoughts throughout the day?  Do you believe in Karma?  Do you believe that what comes around goes around?  Do you think that perhaps maybe when things happen to you it’s because at some point in your life you did something to someone else?

You know I lost my puppy about a week ago.  My oh my I thought that I was going to die!!!  I never knew what it meant to lose a puppy because I had never lost one.  And you hear others talking about it but it doesn’t hit home until it happen to you.  To this day I find it hard to sleep.  I find myself seeing his body on the ground.  I see him doing things that he use to do.  Tuesday when I was in the kitchen I know I saw him sit right beside my left leg. 

I’m a very visual person.  I hate that sometimes.  Because I have a very hard time getting images out of my head once I see them.  This sometimes hinders me to forgive.  I know that in order for me to move forward that I must get pass these things.  Problem is I don’t know how to because of the things that I see.

So how do you get images out of your head?  How do you deal with hurt and pain if the pictures, the images, the visuals constantly keep being relived in my head?

I’m just thinking out loud.  However if you have answers to this please leave me a comment or two. 

Also even as I type this blog my mind is racing.  So many things popped up while I was typing that it was hard to stay focus. 

Sincerely,

Sandra A. Parks

HELPING

Nothing excites me more then reaching out helping others!  I don’t know how to explain it but something goes through me that is so electric!  I get such a rush from helping others.  I love to see others smile.  I love to see others happy.  I love to give.  My pastor wife use to tell me that I was going to give my family straight to the Poor House.  However today over 8 years later the Lord still meets my needs and I still continue to give!!!

My question is this – is it a selfish act to give?  Are you wrong for the enjoying the benefits of helping others?

Friends and Family tell me what you think?

Venting Via my Blog

My heart is so heavy right now!  I guess I should have never gone on that youtube site to look at the teenager being beat in Chicago.  Initially I had just heard of it and was reading the media outlets.  But after watching it you have to be dead not to feel something.  I just don’t know what to say or do.

Anyone that knows me knows that I love the kids.  I love working with them and encouraging them.  One day while in Atlanta on my way to my sister house we saw three little girls and three little boys going into the bushes at around midnight.  I spoke in a loud voice asking LaVerne to stop so that I could tell the little girls not to go into the woods this time of night with those little boys.  I knew they were up to no good.  But she said no.  She said that she wasn’t getting involved.  I believe that this was in June.  Just recently last week I had a dream that those girls were found dead.

One day I was in the Mall with Reggie and we saw this little boy with is his pants sagging.  I asked Reggie to say something to the little boy and he said no.  So I was going to say something to him instead and Reggie pulled me away and said Sandra come one and leave people alone.

I have a mentee that is a teenage mom (and so was I) that I work with.  One day she told me about her baby daddy hitting on her and I was driving around South Dallas trying to find this kid to speak to him.

These are just a few of the situations I’m sharing with you all now.  But there are so many more.  Its a sad day when the adults are afraid to chastise the youth today because of fear of them hurting us.  I remember when I was coming up my elementary teacher Ms. Hill would pull my ears because I had a big mouth and was always running it.  My oh my when I saw her heading towards my desk I knew I was in for that ear to be pulled red.  My granny didn’t say a word because she knew Ms. Hill was making sure that I got my lesson.  We have moved away from this as a nation.  No one wants the teachers to discipline the children although they are at the school 8 hours a day.  Then when they get home we so tired or so occupied on facebook and other things that we don’t pay them any attention either.  So  you have these kids with hours of no chastisement, no structure, no discipline, but yet we expect them to be the next President Obama.  Probably not gone happen.  Even the bible says that Jesus Chastised those that he loved.

It’s in my heart to help young people.  They have so many options today.   Do you know that all children of all backgrounds and socio-economic status can attend Harvard??  When I was a child Harvard was not even in my vocabulary.  But look at our children today.  The sky is the limit.  Often times they don’t even know this. That is why the shoot for some dreams.  That is way they take the easy way out.   So someone must tell them.  How come we don’t have more lawyers, doctors, Accountant, Engineers, CEOs, CFOs, COOs?  Because we are not showing them how to get into these fields.  But we shower them with the latest video games, the latest clothes, we allow them to have all those stupid hair cuts, color in your hair.  People we must tighten our shot groups and take our kids back!!!  It’s too simple!!!

I believe that our youth are hurting for many reasons.  You have some that are from single parent homes, some have been molested by family members that they looked up too, some are intimidated by other kids being placed higher then them, some are jealous over material things, some have learning disabilities that we are overlooking, some are missing their fathers, some have drug habits, some were carried by parents that were doing drugs while they were in the womb.  So many other factors come into play.  Our  babies need help.  Some are adults now that never got the help that they needed.

The system is going to put them in jail, what will that solve?  Some are going to get the death penalty, what will that solve?  Some we will let just wither away, what will that solve?  I don’t know what to do and I don’t know all the answers.  All my life I’ve been a lover of numbers.  But I’m human and I hurt when I see my young people going through.  I don’t care what color they are.  I’m a soldier and I’m green.  I’ve lived all over the world and I love people.  I love children.  I’m telling you that they need love.  And more love and then some more love!!!  But they also need discipline, they need structure, we can’t be their friends.  That is clearly not working.

What are we going to do?  I don’t know so if someone wants to help me please let me know.  I can start by offering them The Sandra Parks School of Etiquette.  You can find us on line at http://www.sandraparksschoolofetiquette.com or call 972.838.0106

Message to our young brothers in Chicago by Nas

I’m from Chicago and what is happening up there is really disturbing for I still have nieces and nephews that walk those streets.  Lets be in constant prayer for our youth all over.  Read this below and please leave comments:

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars!   Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But….

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for.  I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over “he say, she say”!!!!! “I’m from this block or I’m from that block”, or “my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay”!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest “n*gga” breathing.  And I couldn’t wait to prove it. But let’s think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at.  Look who’s watching us young warriors, look who’s throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.

Young warriors…. We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS….and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I’m with you young warriors. You’re me and I’m you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.

This sh*t sucks !!

-Nas

Let it go my young brothers, let it go!!!
