Finding Prospects on Social Media
Written by Michael James on Feb. 10th 2018
When it comes to finding prospects on social media, there are 3 kinds of people you're going to talk to. We'll call them "hot", "warm", and "cold" prospects. But don't get your "hot prospects" confused with your "hot leads". Prospects are people you haven't shared your opportunity with, while leads are people you have (or you've at least started the conversation). 
Pinterest Marketing for Beginners
So, let's get started.

1. Hot Prospects
These are people you already know personally. They're the ones you consider friends and talk to on a regular basis. The reason I'm referring to these people as "hot" prospects is because they already know & trust you which means if you start talking to them about a new opportunity, they're the prospects who are most likely to listen to your sales pitch. Don't get this confused though. Just because they're willing to sit and listen to you talk for half an hour, doesn't mean they're the best fit for your opportunity.

2. Warm Prospects
Maybe you're friends with these people, but you don't talk much and you don't really know each other. Or maybe they're following you on social media and they're familiar with you, but you don't really know them. I consider these people warm prospects because they've already heard your voice (in some form) but they probably don't know you well enough to trust you.

3. Cold Prospects
These are the people you've never met, never talked to, and probably have no idea who you are... or you have no idea who they are. Let's be honest, we've all got a few Facebook friends we've never talked to. Just because they're on your "friends list" doesn't mean they're friends. Consider these people cold prospects.

"What do I do when I run out of people to talk to?"

I hear this question all the time and here's what I recommend:

1st, be honest with yourself. Have you really talked to everyone you know? Sometimes it feels like you only know 10 or 20 people, but in reality you probably know hundreds or even thousands of people. If you haven't already, write a list of names of everyone you know.

2nd, start adding new friends on facebook. Look for people that you think would be interested in your opportunity and add them. But don't just add them and forget about them! The moment that they accept your request, reach out to them, send them a message, introduce yourself, and start building the relationship. Don't just go straight into your sales pitch and hope that they buy. I think people treat social media too often like some sort of automated money machine where they just throw out a sales pitch and make money from everyone they talk to. Don't get me wrong, social media is a fantastic resource for building your business, but you need to take the time to build relationships before you start selling.

I could go on for hours writing about the strategies & systems I use to network and grow my business on social media. That's why we created Club Rise2Pro.
