For years, this was one of my most popular speaking topics. While I have evolved from conversations about Facebook and Twitter to how turn your friends into profit centers while developing authentic REALationships, the question still remains.
Can you make money hanging out in social networking spaces?
The answer remains an astounding YES!
This last month, you probably saw me share tips and links about creating REALationships and Jumpstarting Your JVs on my various social media platforms.
While I usually fill that program with an average of 70% strategic JVs and partnership referrals, this latest program was not the case. Oh, I still had my referral participants, but more than 1/2 of my paid attendees came directly from Facebook!
Why does this matter, you ask?
Well, let me start by saying that I love my Joint Venture REALationships and partners. But I pay them an affiliate commission to everyone they send over. (and I love writing those commission checks because I am very grateful!)
So when someone clicks on MY links in Facebook….or a comment that links back to my program, I make more money!
Please note that I didn’t just show up one day pitching myself to my social networks. I have spent years building my reputation and relationships here.
And I am continuing the process.
But it does pay off and I wanted to share this little win with you.
So the next time you are wondering if Facebook is worth the time, it can be when its done right!
