3. Five Ways to Gain Customers Through Social Media

Here is the social network analysis you go through:


1. Connect - It all starts here. Try visiting several media, don't just use one. Connect with those that are looking for you. They are accessible.

2. Conversation - You talk about what they want to talk about. Study their profiles, including pictures, videos, etc. to learn about them. Stay in touch and listen when they are communicating with them. By doing so, they will want to stay connected to you.

3. Value - Here is the point where you bring them in to your message like a magnet. Show them the value they can obtain with the message you are presenting.

Demonstrate how your message can improve, expand and broaden their life. You accomplish this by providing tips and how-to's in blog posts, content pages, videos, tweets, Facebook posts, and such. You can show them how to do something that they want to learn or how to do something easier. Give them the steps to take in order to be something or do something. When you get them to expand the size of their dreams, you will get them to become a customer.

The greater value you provide, the greater chance you will lead them through the doorway.

4. Doorway - The doorway is the conversion to a customer. In order to have any kind of business, you need to convert prospects to customers.

The best approach to do this is to give them an offer where saying "No" is impossible. Give them an offer that is difficult to turn down. The key here is "give". Give away something that will improve their lives or something that they must have. They will see value.

5. Customer - In this last step, the customer purchases your message, product or whatever you are selling. Then you not only have a customer, but the beginning of a relationship.

Encourage them, thank them and stay in touch. Make sue your Message, Value and Emotions are presented to your customer frequently. They will know you and become your biggest fans.

Using social media can make this happen in your home business or traditions business. Just follow the steps.

SiteSell has an absolutely unique perspective about business, and life. Take a peek insider the world of SiteSell.

In the busy and nosy blogosphere, get ready for some quite, original and valuable thinking, not to mention unique insights into SiteSell itself.

In fact, here is and interesting post by Ken Evoy, SiteSell's CEO. Ken has some strong feelings about the future of SEO. So he really cuts loose on the subject and takes some pleasure in both updating the current state of SEO and saying "I told you so" to the SEO community…

5. You Don't Have an On Switch

We are not machines, so we should take our time and rebalance. We are better when we oscillate. Here are a few ideas to balance intensity and recovery.

1. Sprint for 90 minutes - This is not a physical sprint, but a work sprint. We are not running a marathon, so work hard for 90 minutes, then take a break. (Just like a sprint.) After your downtime for the break, then sprint again for 90 minutes.

2. Get enough sleep (Version 1) - Most all of us are sleep deprived. Most people need 7 hours plus each night. If we aren't getting that much, then we under-perform. If you want to excel, then sleep.

3. Get enough sleep (Version 2) - Take a power nap or day-time nap. It can significantly increase your ability to deliver for the rest of the day.
