Hey my friends! I hear from lot’s of people every day who tell me that they aren’t where they want to be with their business. Either it’s not growing, growing too slow, they are building a list- email or otherwise- and a following but it’s stagnant and they aren’t getting the response that they thought they would.
I always ask them the same questions… Are you building your email list? Are you using free traffic? Are you using free traffic? Are you on social media? How often do you mail your email list? How often do you mail your email subscribers? How often do you post, like, comment and engage prospects, peers, and your fellow business members on social media?
The answer to that from people has been coming up a lot- “I just can’t keep up with all the things I need to do on social media. There just isn’t enough time.”
Posting , liking and commenting on social media every day as well as following up with your prospects, peers and downline may seem like a daunting task. But remember, we all only have 24 hours in the day so get creative and make the time to reach out and connect. You Have to foster engagement to build relationships or your business is dead in the water.
One way to get more time for social media is this….. Do you poop?
I’m 99.9% sure that your answer to that is yes. Since most people take a trip to the restroom 2 to 3 times a day- sometimes more if you are in my business
And let’s be real here… how often do you or have you seen someone in your family go to the bathroom with their phone or mobile device? Usually when it’s number 2 time, we grab our devices and head to the porcelain altar. Heck, with our hectic schedule in this day and age, that’s the only way anyone gets any reading done!
One good way to get your social media posting liking and answering questions and doing support for your downline etc is when you are on a number 2 stop in the restroom! I mean, yeah, keep the selfies and speaker phone calls down to a minimum and keep the content PG- and NO “what famous person does this poop look like?” posts (PLEASE DON’T)! But it does give you a great opportunity to welcome people to groups, say hi, friend request like minded people and marketers, and post ads.
Another way that I find time to post ads on facebook groups (where they allow it) is when I am waiting to pick up my wife at work (She still chooses to work- probably because as much as she loves me, she would be looking for a heavy pillow to use on me if she had to be with me in our RV all day every day!) So, the lag time from when I get there till when she comes out usually lets me do 3 or 4 facebook ad postings!
So just remember, the only difference between you and someone who has made 9 figures last year is how they prioritize their 24 hours in a day and decide what is important. They also get very creative to squeeze the most out of their day that they can! Down the road you can decide what tasks to delegate or hire out so they free up your time so you can do more important income producing activities. You may eventually want to hire a VA or a close friend you trust to do social media posting for you. But for now, don’t be afraid to get creative and really squeeze that clock to get the most out of it!
That’s it for now.
Until we meet again my friend, remember-
Don’t be afraid, Live FREE!
