With over 1.01 billion people now using Facebook, social media marketing is the best place to generate viral traffic.
Viral marketing uses pre-existing social networks to produce increased brand awareness and product sales through self-replicating viral processes.
The ultimate goal of marketers interested in creating successful viral marketing campaigns is to create viral messages that appeal to individuals with high social networking potential that have a high probability of being spread to others in a short period of time.
By creating content that attracts attention and encourages readers to share it with their social networks, your messages spread from user to user because they appear to come from a trusted, third-party source, as opposed to the brand or company itself. Hence, this form of marketing is driven by word-of-mouth, meaning it results in earned media rather than paid media.
Social media has become a platform that is easily accessible to anyone with internet access. Increased communication for organizations fosters brand awareness and often, improved customer service. Additionally, social media serves as a relatively inexpensive platform for organizations to implement marketing campaigns.
The Facebook List Funnel System leverages the power of social media networks to reach millions of potential prospects in your target niche. Using free or premium social media marketing tools saves time and automates the process. Building a targeted list of new contacts using Facebook and then funneling that list out to multiple social networks further expands your circle of influence.
The Facebook List Funnel System leverages Facebook Groups to build a targeted list of contacts within Facebook and then funnel your list out to multiple social networks building a larger circle of influence.
How It Works
You simply signup for a free Facebook account (if you don’t already have one) and use the internal Facebook search to find targeted groups to join or use BeProActive.
When you join Facebook Groups, you can connect with others on a daily basis and build your Facebook “friends list”. Many Facebook Groups such as “work at home” for an example allow you to openly promote your business opportunities.
Post Planner is a premium Facebook marketing tool.
We highly recommended that you check the rules of each and every Facebook group prior to joining by clicking on the “About” tab while in each group.
BE SMART! DON’T OVERPOST TO GROUPS
DON’T RISK LOSING YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT!
The key to success is to share as much value as possible by posting entertaining, informative and motivational, quotes, videos, news and free productivity tools etc. in addition to your self-promotional offers. Also share your own Facebook link as much as possible and invite others to add you as a friend. Example: Please add us on Facebook http://facebook.com/netizenpros
How many groups can I join?
You can join up to 300 groups. If you have already reached this limit, you will need to leave some groups before you will be able to join new ones. There are over 100 Million Facebook Groups to choose from and we give you the best resource to find them!
Some groups have up to 20,000 or more members! By using Facebook groups, you have a virtually unlimited reach potential since you can always leave and join new groups.
If we do the math using the conservative average of only 1000 members per group, times the total allowed groups per account, which is currently set to 300 groups, equals 300,000 members. If you join mostly larger groups with more than 1000 members your reach will be much greater. The potential reach is millions considering the viral sharing aspect of Facebook.
Once you have grown a nice sized list of friends that share your interests, using the instructions below, you can import your Facebook list into your Yahoo contact list (Free). Once you have extracted your Facebook list into Yahoo, you can then import your Yahoo list into Gmail (Free).
Once you have your Yahoo list imported into Gmail, you can import it into multiple social networks!!!
Many people on your list will also be members of other social networks. When you “reconnect” with your original Facebook list on other social networks it widens your circle of influence.
- Set up a Yahoo email account if you don’t already have one. It only takes a minute. Unfortunately, you can’t use Gmail because Facebook has blocked it.
- Sign into your Yahoo mail account using Facebook. To active the feature, you must first link your Facebook account to Yahoo by completing the “Add to Facebook” section of your Yahoo! profile.
- Once that is complete, you sign in with Facebook to your Yahoo!
- Go to email, click Tools, select Import from Facebook. You may need to try this several times for it to complete.
- Go to the Tools menu and select Export to CSV file. Give the file a name and save it to your desktop.
- Open Gmail and click Contacts, More Actions, Import. Browse to the CSV file you just imported.
- Give the New Group a name like “Facebook Friends” and begin the Import
- Go to Google+ Circles. Your imported Facebook Friends will show up under “Find & Invite”.
- Add these friends to the Circles that make sense to you. You can also create new circles and invite them into those circles.
Once you have your Facebook “friends list” imported to Gmail, you can import it to multiple social networks further increasing your circles of influence.
If for some reason you cannot export your contacts from Yahoo using the instructions above, contact us and we will give you a work around.
Other Ways to Invite Friends to Your Business Facebook Page
It’s annoying when a Facebook friend posts never-ending status updates begging for “likes” for their business page. Avoid this undignified approach to inviting friends to your business page by using a bit more finesse. Provide value on your page, and your friends will be happy you invited them to participate in your growing business.
Include Your Friends on the Page
When friends come into your business, snap a photo. Tag the photo and put it on your Facebook business page. When your friends check out the photos in which they’ve been tagged, they’ll land on your page. If they like what they see, they’ll be certain to “like” it. A similar technique is to mention your friends on your business Facebook page. Post a status such as, “I know that Mary Smith will love the new purses we just got in this week!” Use the @ feature to highlight your friends’ names, which will draw them to your page, as your update will show in their notifications.
Entice Your Friends
Post interesting tidbits about your new business to your personal Facebook page. Don’t overdo it — a couple of times a week should be sufficient. Write words that will entice your friends to head over and check out your page. You can invite them directly, or post updates such as, “Hey friends — I’m offering a 50 percent discount on hair products at Shear Heaven this week. Visit our Facebook page and check it out!” Place special offers on your business page as well, as word will soon spread, helping more of your friends to find out about your page.
Write an Email
Write an email telling your friends how excited you are to have a new Facebook page to showcase your business. Let your friends know that you would value their participation on your page, and provide a link to take them there. Include an incentive, such as, “The first 100 people to “like” my page will be enrolled in a drawing for a free tuneup and oil change!” Include business-related photos in your email to make it visually appealing.
Use the Facebook “suggest to friends” feature to quickly invite your friends to your business page. A link to your page will appear in the right-hand column of some of your friends’ pages. Keep in mind that you might not reach all of your friends using this feature. Friends who use Facebook sporadically are particularly unlikely to respond using this method. To get more followers who are not friends, ask good friends who have different social networks if they will “share” your page with their network.
Facebook Badges – Facebook Badges are another great way to build your friends list.
