If you are using Facebook to create meaningful connections, build your brand, find your customers, share your unique message to the world, or to do anything important, then you should be very careful about some common Facebook mistakes. If you are just a casual user, using Facebook just as a time-pass, then you might skip this post. With more than 1 Billion user base, Facebook has made it possible for anyone from anywhere in the world, to find the right customers /audiences for what they are offering. But while trying to market/ sale/ promote their products/ services/ ideas most people forget the fundamental fact – Facebook is a ‘social’ network. And being ‘unsocial’ is the worst mistake you can commit which leads to a complete failure in your Social Media strategy. So what are the Facebook mistakes you should avoid?
As Symbian has become extinct and Android is becoming the talk of the town, you might need to transfer your contacts from your old Nokia Symbian device to your new Android device. No, I have no plan to turn this blog into a technical one. But last month when my E7 suddenly died, even refusing to bootup for the last time (thank God I had my contacts synced in Nokia Suite), I decided to shift to an Android phone. But I was on the verge of being eccentric trying to figure out how to get my thousands of contacts into my new Android phone. Naturally I googled. Found different suggestions in different blogs. Couldn’t find a compact one. Finally after putting together all those suggestions I figured out how to do it. That’s why thought of sharing with you.
No get-rich-quick-formula. If you are looking for that, you are at wrong place buddy. If you know what Network Marketing is, you surely know that common people CAN make really big money in it (atleast that’s what you are told). But then why most people DON’T make big money (or even any money) in this business? Because most people never try to find out the right way of doing this business. And also because most people consider it as a lottery ticket, which it isn’t. And there are lots of crap advice around. From people in your Network Marketing company who made a lot of money, but in a way you can’t duplicate, to bullshit sidebar advertisement on Facebook “No calling. No rejection. Sit at home & make money with our XYZ MLM lead generation system”. If you are really willing to make it big in Network Marketing industry, skip the crap & listen to the advice of the experts. Watch this video from one of the leading experts of our profession Randy Gage.
You must have heard the saying that “You don’t become a human just after you are born. You need to develop certain qualities to be called ‘human’ unlike other living species”. I think same is true for being a ‘Social Networker’. One can not be called ‘Social Networker’ just because they use some social networking sites. One need to understand the true meaning of the terms ‘social’ and ‘networker’ to be qualified for that. Honestly I am learning & practicing being more social and a better Networker for quite a few years. And today I will introduce to you one of my teachers in this subject – Shilpadi (she is too humble to admit, but I’m always learning from her). She is among the very few persons I’ve met, who regularly meets new people, maintains good relationship with them, connects people with each other, takes the online relationship to real life meetings. And trust me, it’s easier said that done.
As the kids are still unborn or too young to read this blog, I had to title it as ‘for parents’. And if you are a parent who is always afraid of what people might think or care more about your social impression than your kids’ happiness, then you are advised not to read further. If you are not a parent, then also this post will be very interesting (or disturbing) read for you. As I mentioned in my previous post, that I’m not-normal. So our educational system never made sense to me. But still had to participate in the rat race for long until I became old enough to refuse. This twisted point view of mine resulted in lots of suspicions in people around me, and felt like alien for quite some times. But I’m glad that in last 7 years met many people who bear the same opinion as mine. And few months back, an interesting conversation with Sanjibda re-ignited the spark within me to wake people up from age-old brainwashing of our broken educational system. Download Free Report.
I was considered normal as long as I was walking the road of life according to what others decided for me. But from the day, I started following my own heart, people around me (yes my parents too) started considering me not-normal ( just because abnormal sounds too rude). How can a normal person (according to them), leave academics after passing out from two of the finest institutions of our country ( read ‘Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission’ & ‘Shibpur BE College’)? How can a normal Bengali boy decide to start own business instead of going for MNC / Govt. jobs? ( Don’t you know that God declared in an ancient pamphlet “Bongs can’t do business”?)
If you are reading this post, 99.99% probability is either you don’t know about Network Marketing or you think you know about Network Marketing. No offense but I’ve met very few people who actually know what Network Marketing industry really is. If you know nothing and willing to learn, nice. But if you think you know everything, please think again. How did you come to know about it?
Unemployment is a severe point of concern in India and many other countries. What about those who are employed? Are they very happy and satisfied? Answer is no. Professional frustration and corporate exhaustion are very common now a days. From underpaid call center employees to high-paid executives, in most cases, you won’t see smile in their faces, most are running out of time for passion and family. Heart attack toll is rising. Relationships are shattering. Kids are growing up alone. If this continues, our future will be quite scary. So what is the remedy?
