I believe in giving back. And best way for to give back in this industry is by helping other achieve their goals as I have been helped in achieving mine.

Less time on social networks paying off

Feb 21st 2011 at 12:02 AM

We all wants results, but do we all do the things that actually get the result we want? I would say no. I say no because most of us are not willing to do the most type of work that is actually easier than what we do now.

I spend less time on IMface plate, facebook and other social network promoting my business than I did when I first went into business for myself. The result has been more quality leads than I had imagine because I thought internet marketing was the easist, most efficient and effective  way to build my business but it isn't.

The most easist is picking up the phone and asking people if they are open to looking at a way to create addition income because I get an immediate response which allows me to move on to the next step. The most efficient way is picking up the phone because more done in less time, and the most effective way is picking the phone because my response rate is higher because people feel more comfortable speaking with a real person as as oppose emails, chat or whatever.

The last thing I learned is that I'm tapping into my creative spirit more now than I did when I spent alot of time on social networks. And I'm more confident than I was when I was using social networks.

Interesting thoughts, Jones. While I agree that strengthening a relationship by call a person IS an excellent thing to do, you seem to be putting it in terms of doing social networking versus direct calling rather than weaving the two together? How do you generate your contacts that you call in the first place? Great article, just wanting to better understand and clarify. Much continued success to you. ~LonnieG P.S. Call me! 281-506-0015
