What is home business automation anyways? And is it even possible? We’ve all heard those things “make a list of people, talk to all of them, share the product”.
But what’s next? You typically turn online, unless you want to do 1-on-1 coffee meetings for the next decade or so. Don’t know about you, but that’s not why I signed up in network marketing.
Network marketing is about creating freedom, which is why automation is a beautiful thing. And it can be done these days with the Internet.
Old school strategies still work, but the true power lies in the Internet and using it to your advantage.
[HOME BUSINESS AUTOMATION #1: System]
First and foremost you must have a system in place where you can plug in all of your new team members. It could be a Facebook group with some walk through videos, or some company generic training.
Your team mates must know what it is they should be focusing on within the next 30, 90, 180 days and beyond.
However, in the long term, you must have something in place where you can point people to. You need this especially if you see the same question keeps popping up.
Another reason for having a system – it’s duplicatable. Once your team mates know where you plug them in, what they need to do, then they can do the exact same thing with their customers/distributors. Leverage your time and let the system do the work for you.
[HOME BUSINESS AUTOMATION #2: Facebook Groups]
What is it that you’re currently using to expose people to your company product or opportunity? Probably a company video, or a live webinar, maybe a hotel meeting. You can either keep using that, or you can have a private Facebook group for that matter.
It’s not that difficult to setup. All you need is a closed Facebook group and post company videos there explaining the business side and/or the product side.
Once you have the group setup, your goal is to invite people in it. And another thing you need to do is to keep the group engaged by posting there consistently. You can post customer results with the products, rank advancements, company alerts.
Another way to use Facebook groups is for your teams. It’s so easy to keep all the communication and team training within the groups.
[HOME BUSINESS AUTOMATION #3: Messenger]
Messenger is probably one of the best things that has ever happened to us. The ability to message and call and even video-call across the globe for free is a no-brainer. Not to mention it’s all within Facebook.
Although, in network marketing we’re all taught to pick up the phone and call everyone, or call the leads you generate, Facebook is so powerful in combination with that.
These days you can build your audience on Facebook, and keep all the communication within the app. Want to know the best automation tip? I’m sure you have either heard or done some 3-way calls with prospects in your upline. Imagine setting those up with multiple time zones.. Crazy..
Instead of dealing with that, you can easily setup a 3-way group chat on Messenger. No need to scratch your head about the time zones. And if you still need to hop on a call, you can do that within the app. Way to build a global team!
[HOME BUSINESS AUTOMATION #4: Webinars]
Talking one on one is great, and we all do that. However, if you want real leverage in your life, why not talk one to MANY? And you can totally do that through webinars. It’s very similar to what your company is probably doing already or to the good old home meetings.
The only difference is it’s online based and you don’t even need to get out of the house. The best thing? You can invite people to join your webinar from all over the world, and of course, it’s free!
If you’re curious what software to use to host webinars, there are 2 that I highly recommend.
The first one is Zoom – the easiest one and the most cost effective:
If you’re more into hosting professional webinars, then I recommend Webinar Jam:
