Network Marketing Lead Generation Tools-Why It's Crucial to Avoid These Social Media Mistakes


Now days, most network marketers are using social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter as lead generation tools. While it's true these sites are great ways to interact with people, if you go about doing things the wrong way, you will not develop leads, end op annoying people, and maybe even end up quitting out of sheer frustration.

Would it be ok if you learned how to use social media in effective ways? In a recent blog post, one of my mentors named Roxanne Green posted about this very issue.  Here is a brief excerpt from her blog:

"There are many different schools of thought on how to use social spaces to market your business. This post is mainly directed to entrepreneurs, MLM, direct sales, real estate agents, etc… First of all, you do NOT need a business page if your business is just you. If your business is large enough to need a physical location and/or employees, you should have a business page. Otherwise, it’s not necessary at this point.

I have many network marketers who are on my Facebook friend’s list. The mistakes I will discuss here are not exclusive to Facebook, however, most people reading this are familiar with Facebook so I will use that social space as the example.

Some so-called “gurus” are teaching people that they need to constantly pitch their business on Facebook  This is the biggest LIE that was ever told!! I will include some recent posts that I've seen my “friends” make. These are examples of what NOT to do when marketing your business on social spaces."

Roxanne then went on to list some of the common threads her friends post on Facebook. I have to say that I have noticed quite a bit myself. The bottom line is this: if we want to use the sites such as Facebook as a tool to get more customers or business partners, then shouldn't we learn how to do it right way? Roxanne will be sharing with us how. To read more of her article, feel free to visit "Musings of A Work At Home Mom "blog at

Make sure you do all you can to not make the mistakes Roxanne was discussing. If you can, your online business building efforts will go much smoother!
