Building Your Own Personal Brand | 3 Awesome Reasons

Building your own personal brand.building your own personal brand

Just last week I shot a video on how a blog can help you build your own personal brand so today I wanted to talk to you about why it is  important to begin building your own personal brand in the first place.

Let me start by asking you this question, “Have you read the policy and procedure manual for your multi level marketing company?”

It is important to know what the company rules are as an independent distributor. There are some things you need to be aware of  so make sure you read the policies and procedure manual to find out what they are.

Even though you are independent you are still paid a commission by the company and this could come to an abrupt end for many reasons.

Here are a few of them:

  • You break the rules either willfully or accidentally and are terminated.
  •  The company goes belly up for whatever reason.
  •  You simple decide you want to move on and do something else.
These are just a few of reasons and I’m sure you can think of a few more.

I’m going to explain in this blog post why you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket .

Here are 3 reasons why you should be building your own personal brand online.

1.When you are building your own personal brand you are totally in control . You are the CEO and the chief bottle washer of your personal brand.

By building your own personal brand online you can keep doing business as usual even if there are major changes to your multilevel marketing business. You will still be established online as an entrepreneur. You can still maintain the relationships you’ve built and you will still be in control of your list of contacts. You are the brand and by having you as the brand you stay in total control.

2. When you build your  own personal brand you can offer many different products.

You are not tied to one thing you can diversify what you promote. Most of the products I promote online are of an educational nature but there are many products. In this way you can and will develop multiple streams of income. I have done this and it’s a great feeling to know you are not dependent on one check or one company. It’s really a lot of fun when you go to the bank cashing in all those checks!

3. Building your own personal brand gives you freedom to create your own product.

The digital age has given us a lot of opportunity for building a product and promoting it online. This can be very lucrative.

Even if you give away your product for contact information it is a great way to find those targeted leads that we all need to grow our business.

This is the big picture you need to be aware of, it’s not just one thing you can do but multiple areas of interests and income.

Develop you…you are a leader, you are a teacher, you are a coach, you are a product creator and you have a diversified line of goods you can offer to anyone who needs help and is struggling with their business online or off line.

So I hope you can why you might want to consider the pros of building your own personal brand online.

There is no reason to put all of your eggs in one basket! It’s a big world out there and the internet has opened up unlimited possibilities.

If you are struggling with your business I highly recommend you take the time to learn how to begin building you own personal brand. This is something no one can take away from you. You can be in the drivers seat.

The Reluctant Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur: a person who organizes and manages a business undertaking, assuming the risk for the sake of profit.

Is it no wonder some of us are reluctant…there’s that word….RISK!entrepreneur

Have you ever thought you might be going in circles in your life and not fulfilling your dreams?  You have an itch but can’t seem to scratch it.

You know you want something more out of life but not sure what that something could  be.

I had those thoughts too and this blog post is about  how we make life changing decisions and why we sometimes are forced into letting go of our security blanket so we can let something else into our lives even if it seems like we’re taking a risk. We may even have to start from scratch terrifying and nerve racking as that might be even worse it could be out of our control.

So if you think you might not be manifesting the life you desire because of the fear related to taking a risk read on:

I’ll confess when I had my day job I really wanted to do something different and had thought about it for a long time.

 I wanted to do my own thing and maybe be an entrepreneur.

Anyway this was one of my fantasies but it held risk and I knew it all too well. I had worked (like a dog) for many years for financial security but yes I admit I was burned out and used up physically. I just wasn’t quite ready to “give it up” mostly for  those financial reasons too many risks involved in letting it go.

I finally made a decision to retire and had a timeline going, only had a few more months before I reveled this to my co workers and boss., it wasn’t official yet but I  was in that mindset…I’m going to retire soon and maybe follow my dream to be an entrepreneur  maybe. Retiring would give me the cushion I needed to make this happen or so I thought…..

I was working toward the light at the end of the tunnel and I had a glimpse of it just there beyond my reach.

Then one day my boss wanted to meet with me. Turns out it was really not a meeting but a “lynching” it was unexpected and I sat there in disbelief. There was nothing I could do. The exact words he used “We’re going to have to let you go,” nice going! He fired me.

I remember him saying, now if you think you might cry on the way home just pull over on the side of the road and don’t be driving while your upset little lady! Ha! I wanted to burst out laughing and had to control the urge. You know you’re ready to leave your job if you start laughing when they tell you you’re fired! My heart was saying yipee! In hind sight what he really did was open the cage to let me fly. I’ll send a thank you note one day soon.

I’ll confess I did cry but I only cried a little bit and that was days later when I had time to think about the total injustice of it . I wanted to be the one to break up! I wanted to be in control and I wanted to be the one to say GoodBye!

I was the oldest person in our department and one of the highest paid so of course it makes perfect sense they let me go months before my retirement. Unfortunately this scenario seems to be all too familiar in Corporate America today and might have happened to some of you. Poor pitiful us. Never!

Nope for me  it was the beginning of a whole new exciting chapter, finally I could be an entrepreneur.

Luckily I’d already started down the entrepreneurial  road and didn’t even know it. I’d joined an MLM start up company in pre launch months earlier my friend begged me to join in her down line. The company quickly fizzled but I had a taste of what could be, what was possible. So I soon joined another MLM.

I had picked myself up , dusted myself off and dug into my new career as…… drum roll please….Entrepreneur!!!  I love the way that sounds….just lovely!

Now fortunately for you, you don’t have to go through what I went through to get what you want. The beauty of an MLM business is the flexibility to work part time say 10 hours a week while you build residual income by doing it this way you never have to have your security snatched out from under you. Some people call it their Plan B.

It’s been a little over a  year now and I can tell you this  I am happy! I love everything I’m learning and I’ve learned a lot. I’ve met some great people whom I never would have met except for what happened. I feel freer than ever. My business is growing. I will not lie it’s not easy starting from scratch  and it can be very challenging at times but I’m not gonna let anything block the path I’m on.

So if you find yourself in a similar circumstance just remember if it makes you nervous it’s probably a good idea. Risk can be a great motivator so be fearless, be a leader, forge ahead…never look back and don’t have any regrets…make the most of your circumstances.

Did I tell you I am blessed to have a great partner (my husband) who supports everything I do. It is such a blessing and I hope you have people in your life who give you unconditional love and support.

My journey as a reluctant entrepreneur  is really only just beginning. I am a very excited entrepreneur and can’t wait to see what will happen tomorrow and in the future and also track my own progress here online.

If you are in a similar situation or you just want to start something new  by joining a dynamic MLM company click here to recession proof your life and become an entrepreneur.  Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you. I am here to be your coach, mentor or friend. I will lead you in the right direction.

The sign on my door says OPEN! Stop by and say hell0.

Hope you enjoyed this blog post.

I am part of a great online community and we help each other learn and succeed. Learn how to market your business on the internet…be a great entrepreneur.

5 Ways Thanksgiving Can Teach Us About Abundant Living

Thanksgiving is a wonderful day of  the year.

It ushers in  the holiday and holy season. It is fitting that we give thanks at this time of year. How did we comeThanksgiving to celebrate this feast and what can it mean for us.

The Pilgrims came to this land in 1620 for religious freedom They gave up a lot, many even gave their lives. They were on a quest for something they were passionate about.

 After a year of hardship and toll the first Thanksgiving Feast was celebrated in 1621.

The Pilgrims along with the Native Indians gathered together to celebrate the first successful harvest. This was a great day of gratitude for the blessing they were about to receive. Little did they know that their celebration and gratitude for their bountiful harvest would create a day of  thanksgiving  for our nation that is still  celebrated today.

What were the Pilgrims feeling on that Thanksgiving day so very long ago?

The word for what they were felling is gratitude. You could describe gratitude as a feeling of thankfulness for blessings or benefits you have received. We should all be grateful and acknowledge the kindness and help we receive along our journey in life.

Gratitude builds humility and generates acts of kindness,  the Pilgrims invited the Indians to come and share their blessing. Gratitude also evokes service and caring. Gratitude is the foundation for faith, courage , contentment, happiness, love and well being.

Being grateful  helps you direct your focus to the things you have and have achieved. It is a totally positive mental response and we all know we attract what we think. With gratitude you direct your focus to what you have and not what you lack.  This can change your consciousness and by changing your consciousness you can change your life. This helps you live a life of abundance.

If you are passionate about something and you are willing to sacrifice to obtain your goals you will most likely experience a lot of  gratitude. Gratitude for the people who have come into your life. Gifted, sharing and giving people who are willing to help you get what you want. The law of the universe requires you to pay it forward and to help others as well.

I practice Yoga and at the end of every class we are asked to take a moment of silence and give gratitude for the things we are thankful for in our lives. How powerful thanksgivingthis little moment is. If we all took a few moments each day, not just on Thanksgiving but everyday to give thanks for everything wonderful and good in our lives how do you think this would affect our outlook?

Here is what being thankful can do for you.

  1. It can help you focus on the positive things in your life. Your family, your friends, your opportunities.
  2. It can turn a negative into a positive. Be grateful for your challenges
  3. It makes you focus on what’s important in your life. Helps you maintain a positive outlook.
  4. It helps you to remember to thank others for all they mean and all they do for you.
  5. It helps you be humble and be thankful for all kindnesses you receive.

In closing I’d like to share this prayer of gratitude with you, the author is unknown:

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,

If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something

For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.

During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations

Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge

Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes

They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary

Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.

a life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

Author Unknown.

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!

How Safe Is Your Twinkie?

Twinkie is vanished, gone, kaput.

What’s going on? How could this happen?

There are many things in our world unsecured these days, what about these?

How safe is your job?

How safe is your retirement?

How safe is your lifestyle?

Not trying to scare you here but things are changing, so let’s take a look at what happened to the Twinkie and how this can relate to your job, retirement or lifestyle.

We all know that after 82 years the Twinkie has met it’s demise.  Hostess the maker of the Twinkie is going out of business and as of last report How Safe Is Your Twinkiethey have already disappeared from the grocery shelves. So if you haven’t already grabbed your supply, sorry to say you are out of luck they are kaput.

Depending on your Twinkie view point this might be a good thing or it might be a real tragedy.

I have heard a lot of  wailing and gnashing of teeth going on within the Facebook community from those who cannot bare to live in a world without  their Twinkie. Wow! what a totally shocking turn of events. How’s your world without Twinkie?  Frantic Twinkie lovers have grabbed them up and even memorialized them with Twinkie parties  across the country saying goodbye to this preservative laden junk food. BTW in the course of my research I did dig up this fact: the shelf life of a Twinkie is 25 days not 25 years like some have reported.

Seriously now, let’s look at the bigger picture concerning the Twinkie. What does this really say about our economy and the world we live in?

What this says is we have another casualty in our weak economy. Unfortunately for the 18,500 Twinkie workers , thirty three Twinkie bakeries, 565  Twinkie distribution centers, more than 5,000 delivery routes and 570 bakery outlet stores all being laid off and shut down…just in time for the holiday season.  This did not come as a shock to those who follow the business.

It is getting harder for old American businesses to survive in a global economy. The cost of labor on a global scale is way down and part of the demise of Hostess was due in part to a union dispute. The company asked for wage and benefit cuts and the union refused to budge. The union blames Hostess for the closing and of course Hostess blames the union.

So here’s my take on all of this Twinkie tragedy,  from an early age you are told to get an education (while going into debt) then get a job because it willHow Safe Is Your Twinkie take care of you for the next 40 years. Sorry to say this is no longer the case for most.

I know this first hand because I too was a casualty of our changing economy.  So what can you do about it? I say you better be prepared. Get yourself a plan B and the sooner you start the better.

Check out all the options out there. Develop multiple streams of income. Don’t put all your eggs ( or Twinkies) in one basket.

My personal plan has been to start building an MLM business and while my down line is growing I am learning everything I can about marketing. I found a wonderful educational platform to help me figure out all this internet stuff and if you’re interested check it out click here.

Hostess with it’s Twinkie  is not the first company we have seen bite the dust  and it will not be the last by any means. We all need to take a long look at what is happening in the “Global Economy” and take steps now to cushion our fall if it happens to us. You can never have too many streams of income. They all add up.

If you feel threatened in this economy and you should, I encourage you to start with your plan B as soon as possible. Click here for more information.

MLM Success | How To Overcome 5 Common Objections

MLM success can be yours, if you #1 invest in yourself and #2 Refer to #1.

Do you find yourself getting tongue tied when you hear objections such as “I don’t have time to work a business,” or “I’m not sure I can afford to start a business,” or how about this one, I’m sure you’ve heard it by now, “Is this thing a pyramid scheme?” Your prospects have fear of the unknown. Your job is to acknowledge those fears and concerns.  Don’t freak out, not yet anyway.

The professionals have learned how to overcome                                                                           mlm success

objections and they are not afraid to meet them head on. They don’t skirt the issues. They realize that their prospects have real concerns and fears and they provide the solution to these with answers.

One of the things that separate the professionals from the amateurs is the ability to overcome objections and close the deal.

If you need help overcoming objections and the fear you feel when you hear them then read on:

Remember your prospect deserves to be heard and it is your job to help them make an informed decision.

#1 – “I don’t think I have the time.”

This was a major concern when I started my own network marketing career. I had many objections and needed some answers. We all  know how valuable time can be.

If I was ever going to enjoy the freedom and lifestyle I said I wanted I had to MAKE THE TIME to follow my MLM success.

Television, wow how much  time is wasted just sitting there watching endless hours of  TV. What does this really cost you? You  may ask your prospect to decide what’s important and what are they willing to give up to get  their MLM success.

Using time management strategies and weaving in 5-7 hours of quality work time will get them off to a great start in their business.

#2 – “I’m not sure I can afford it.”
Maybe maybe not. It might be that your prospect can’t afford not to at least check it out. Most MLM companies will have a wealth of promotional products to help educate your prospect.

 Have them talk to other people who have MLM success, 3 way calls are great for this. Edify your upline and put your prospect on a 3 way call.

Ask them to look at the reason why they want to start their own business. Are they looking to supplement their income to make ends meet?

Do they want to quit their job so someone else isn’t  raising their kids?   Are they in miserable work environment with a psychotic boss? Are they afraid of being laid off or have they been laid off. It never hurts to have a plan B especially if it leads to MLM success.

Ask them to think about what they really want to achieve with having a  their own business. Is their reason why is enough to keep them going even when the going gets tough? The “Why” should bring a tear to their eyes.

#3 – ” I’m not a salesperson.”

You might not want to be a salesperson and neither did I. I like to think of my network marketing business as sharing. I have a great product that produces phenomenal results and I really want to share it with others.

 My product fits with what I’ve been doing for so many years …helping people get healthy and also helping them with their MLM success.

Everyone is promoting something and they aren’t calling it selling. We all promote, doctors, politicians, ministers it just depends on what you decide to promote. Almost all communication is “selling” or persuading with your point of view.

#4 – “ I’ve tried a MLM before and it didn’t work.”

Network marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. It is a legitimate business and takes some education, training and patience to have MLM success. Most of this depends on the person and their mindset. If their reason for doing this business is strong enough they will find a way to make it work and nothing can hold them back from MLM success.

It doesn’t take a big money commitment to get into network marketing which is a great thing but it’s also a bad thing because it’s easy to quit with no big lose.

For those who stick with it and reach the level of  MLM success that is possible  it is a fantastic life style well worth the effort.

Once you run out of family and friends is where the big problem comes in what do you do after that? Well for me the answer was to learn internet marketing and I joined a community of other network marketers. We share ideas and training and we learn what’s working and what’s not working from the system we all use and from each other. If you have run out of leads and you’re looking for a way to jump start you business click here.

#5 – “Is this a pyramid scheme?”

This is the all time favorite. For sure this is a legitimate concern especially if your prospect has lost money in a scam or maybe their Aunt Mattie did. The way to get around this objection is through Education! Researching this industry and learning what it is and isn’t will keep you from passing up a great opportunity.

I had many doubts  I could ever achieve MLM success when I started in this industry.

The first company I joined was a start up and it failed even before we started. Then I found the company I’m in today which is a great success. Look around, don’t join the first company you find, really research it.

Do your due diligence before joining any MLM. Check to see if they are a memeber of the DSA Direct Selling Association. They must meet high ethical standards in order to become a member.

Donald Trump and Warren Buffett both own MLM companies, if these financial giants like this business model then that give a lot of validity to  the possibility that there really is MLM success in this business model. It can work for you if you do the work.  Knowledge is key to MLM success.

Magnetic Sponsoring | Do You Suck At MLM?

Magnetic Sponsoring – Do You Suck At MLM?

Ok let’s be honest here. I don’t usually talk like this but for those of you who really do suck at your MLM business I wanted to grab your attention and share this with you. Everybody sucks at first.  I know I did and sometimes still do.

I just finished an incredible book, actually I’ve just re-read it and it’s called  Magnetic Sponsoring and it was written by Mike Dillard. It’s the kind of book you will want to read over and over in order to soak up all the great wisdom.

tonyastephens.net

Mike Dillard is an authority on attraction marketing and  has built a huge brand based on the principle in this book. He is a leader you should listen too.  If you read this book Mike promises, more leads, more cash, and more reps. Read on and learn more about Magnetic Sponsoring it could have a big impact on you and the way you do your business.

What is Magnetic Sponsoring?

Some say it is revolutionary and some say it is evolutionary, it makes you question the way you approach your MLM business.

The first thing you learn from Mike is this, “everyone sucks at first in this business.” The key to making a full time income in your MLM is to become a leader. Now you might want to read that again, yes Mike Dillard says you have to become a leader to make it in this industry. So how do you go from sucking to a leader?  Let’s take a closer look.

According to Magnetic Sponsoring , what makes a person attractive?

It’s a biological trigger due to our evolution. As explained in the book, we by nature like to live in social groups. In the beginning we depended on a strong leader for survival. Someone physically strong with skills such as hunting .This person would be the leader until they were challenged by someone with enough confidence to become a leader themselves.

This is the survival instinct that is part of our make up. In the past people had a hard time surviving alone so groups and families were very important. Every group had a leader and the leader is the Alpha.

According to the book we are wired to find someone either attractive or un-attractive based on the level of value they have to offer. We gain a portion of their power by association.  Example:  celebrity and his entourage.

Magnetic Sponsoring in a nut shell:

1.People have a subconscious attraction to others who are strong leaders. It is the leader’s perceived value that is attractive.

2. If you want to make it big in the MLM industry you must learn how to become a leader and offer your value to those in your group.

The bottom line here is people don’t join a company, people join people. They are looking for a strong leader who can help them become successful and mentor them to become a leader as well.

Not everybody will come into this business with Alpha skills and charisma, then what? If that’s you, you must develop the skills to become a leader.

There are three types of people in life according to Mike Dillard in his book, alpha, pre alpha, and beta. You can also say there are leaders, up and coming leaders, and followers.

Which one are you?

Your state of mind determines a lot of what happens to you in this industry.

The people you recruit are a direct reflection of your personal beliefs about yourself.

If you are not happy with the way your MLM business is growing you need to look inside yourself and decide what needs to change from within.

So what do you do to become a leader?

Be dedicated to learning, find a mentor and put into practice what you learn.

There are many books to learn from and many other resources where you can obtain the training you need to get you there.  This is a  journey with no end except to keep evolving and getting better.

Magnetic Sponsoring can help but be committed to always being a student and never stop learning and improving. That’s what you have to be willing to do. Will you do it?

I suggest you start by reading Magnetic Sponsoring. Read it and understand the theory behind attraction marketing then put the suggestions into practice. You will begin to see a difference in yourself and your business once you understand what it takes to be attractive you can begin to offer value to others.

Be a servant and help people get what they want and by doing so you will begin to get what you want.

Help others, develop  yourself and never give up.

ASEA Review

ASEA Redox Signaling Molecules Review:

ASEA Review

If you are here reading this review it’s probably because you’ve recently heard about ASEA and want to know more about it.

What is ASEA?

How does ASEA work?

What are the benefits of ASEA?

Perhaps you want to use the product and perhaps you are considering joining the company as a distributor.

Here are some of the answers.

ASEA is a product made from salt water, more specifically processed salt water and that contains  stabilized redox signaling molecules.

What the heck is a redox signaling molecule? Here you go:

Redox signaling is a process in which free radicals and other electronically activated radicals act as messengers in the body. It is a process that shows how cells in our body respond to oxidants and free radicals. Redox signaling is a continuous and important process that allows cells to communicate with each other and carry out body functions

ASEA is reported to have a stablized version of redox signaling molecules that no one else has ever produced for consumption. The draw back is it taste like chlorinated pool water. So why would people drink this stuff? Well the answer may lie in the marketing. It has been touted as a fountain of youth. It promises to help reverse any problem related to aging just in time for the biggest trend in modern history “The Baby Boomers.”
How does it work?

Competitive athletes drank the ASEA water one week before clinical  testing.

They were then put through some strenuous physical exercise. This was a  double blind study  to prove the actual physiologic benefits. The Athletes claimed they “knew” the benefits before it was proven. They said they could feel it working and had more energy and better endurance.
After the testing the scientist doing the research were surprised by the ASEA results.                                                                                                                 ASEA Review

This is what they found:

The Asea causes an increase in fatty acids in the blood. The scientist think the fatty acids came from the fat stores in the abdominal area. It increased metabolism.

This fat is used as energy during exercise and even if you don’t exercise it still increases your metabolism. Daily activities are improved as well. If this is really true the shift in metabolism is a very good thing for everyone.
So there you have it, I think the jury is still out on this one. Is it legit? Only time will tell. Try it for yourself and report back.

There are some hurdles to jump if you want to distribute this product.

1. You will have to explain what it is.

2. It could be perceived by many as expensive water and it taste bad.

3.The compensation plan is a binary.
The company is based in Salt Lake Valley, Utah and the Founders are Verdis Norton  and James Pack. Verdis Norton has 30 years with Kraft Foods and James Pack built a very successful telecom consulting company.
The compensation plan is a binary.If you build your team correctly you could have a great income level with this company. Emphasis on building correctly.

One of the biggest problems ASEA distributors will face is how to build a large team. After you go through your warm market you will need a way to market your business. One way to market is on the internet. You can generate a steady stream of leads using the system that I use.

Get The Most Out Of Your Fan Page Status Updates

Fan Page Status Updates seem simple enough but there are a few things you should consider in order to maximize your efforts.

If you are a network marketer you’ve probably thought about using a Facebook Fan Page to promote your business or perhaps you already use a Facebook Fan Page to promote your business. In either case it’s a great tool to use. It gets you exposure, let’s you share content and  engage with your audience.

This blog post will explain how you can use fan page status updates in the most effective way so let’s get started.                                                                 www.tonyastephens.net

If you’ve been procrastinating  setting up your Fan Page because you don’t know how, never fear. I have provided a short video here to help you.  It’s really easy to do and I suggest you get on this task right away.

Once you have it set up you will want to add fans and then it’s your duty to consistently post great content with fan page status updates.

You want to post engaging content with your fan page status updates  that is of interest to your audience. You want to post things that will provoke a response so you can engage with your audience. In this way you will get to know them and they will get to know you. Attraction marketing is all about engagement and getting to know your audience and having them get to know you. Facebook can be a great venue for this type of interaction. Fan page status updates  are important because they give us a way to start the engagement.

What are some of the things you will want to post in your fan page status updates?

Very simply you can use text, pictures  and videos.These are some of the best ways to get exposure because they show up so well in the news feed. Pictures especially BIG pictures grab your audiences attention and they are more likely to click something that grabs their attention and also to  share it which is what you want. The more likes, comments and shares you get on your post the better. These likes, comments and shares directly affect your Edge Rank.

Videos can work as well if the cover picture and the text your use to describe the video is interesting or engaging. Another great way to get your audiences attention is with questions! By asking the right questions you gain more exposure and more shares. The key to asking the right questions is to understand your audience. What do they want? What do they want to improve? What are they interested in?

If you can start a dialog with your audience through questions you can begin to build a community through your fan page status updates.

Next is Polls. Polls  are another great way to start a dialog and engage with your audience. They are also found in the status update area and are very easy to set up. I have found that you cannot schedule a Poll  as a status update so be prepared to go real time with your poll.

Milestones: post a milestone that people care about. Make them relevant and give details about why you’re posting a Milestone.

Here are things you might like to know.

The best  fan page status updates should be short and sweet, not unlike a Tweet.

Keep your status updates to below 200 characters. Make sure your pictures are eye catching and relevant to the post. You can find images on Google images but make sure they do not have a copy write.  If you post a hyperlink keep it to only one hyperlink, don’t confuse your audience with multiple links! This is a no no. If you confuse your audience they will do nothing, so you’re wasting your time. If you use the @Tag the same apply s. No more than one @ Tag per post.

I usually post in the morning and then again in the evening. I have read that 8AM is a good time and then again from 6-9PM. It might be a good idea to check your insights to see exactly where your audience lives and post for their time zone.

Some things to remember as you nurture you Fan Page for maximum growth:

Don’t post all day long, you will become annoying to your audience and they will simply Un Like you.

Try to keep your content fresh in your fan page status updates.

Believe  it or not the real purpose of status updates for a Fan page  is to get users to like comment or share your post. It is not meant to sell things!

Why do want your audience to like, share or comment on your Fan Page post because things that show up inside your fans news feed are things that get the attention, remember Edge Rank.  The more likes comments and shares  you get the more exposure for your Fan Page.

Summary:

Know your audience: post about something that will interest them.

Have a single call to action

Don’t forget to use a big picture, this is most important in fan page status updates!

Ask a single question.

Post during peak hours 8 AM or 6-9 PM make sure you know the time zone your audience lives in.

Become an expert in what you are offering.

Think about the  big issues your audience has, their wants and needs and develop some of your posts around these issues.

What do they want to know about?

What do they share with their friends.

Be of real value to your audience.
