April is here–and it happens to be MY BIRTHDAY MONTH! If you know me personally, you know that my family goes all-out for birthdays, and we celebrate all month long!!! I decided that for this year’s birthday, I’d include all of you in the celebration, and give YOU a little gift–all month long (every Monday in April) I will be releasing a FREE training on a topic I love–SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING!
Today we kick off our social media marketing series with a little challenge–watch the video below, then read below it for more info on the challenge, and language to help you get started==>
LANGUAGE FOR THE “200 INBOX CHALLENGE”:
INDIRECT APPROACH (*thanks to Amy Byrd for sharing this):
“Hi Joanna! I realize this is out the blue…. hope you’re well! I know you live in Utah & that market is an important area of growth for my business for multiple reasons. You may or may not have a personal interest, but either way I would love to tell you who I am looking for in the hopes you might know someone. Can you please shoot me your cell? I’m hoping you can help me & would love to catch up with you if nothing else. (*personalize the conversation)=> Congrats on your darling son! 10-15 minutes is all I need, as I’m sure that’s all you have time for as well right now. Thanks & I’ll drop you another message later next week if I don’t hear from you first.”
If you get the opportunity to connect, tell your story!!! (We just finished a month-long series on story-telling so check out the past few posts on the blog if you missed them!) Then share who you are looking for (3 C’s- customers, consultants/distributors, connectors/ referrals!)
OR YOU CAN USE A DIRECT APPROACH (*thanks to Heather Nianouris for sharing this):
Personalize the conversation: “Hi Kelly! I LOVED the pics you posted of Grace in her ballet costume! Those curls! Where did those come from?
OK – I hope you don’t think I’m crazy, but your name keeps popping into my head, so I figured I’d quit ignoring the intuition and reach out to you. You’ve probably seen my posts about my business (company name)? I’ve just gotta tell you about this business, because It’s quickly becoming more than I’d ever imagined. I am being totally transparent here – I made a list of people who would be on my dream team, and you’re right there at the top. With your personality/connections, you’d be a superstar at this. I think it’s totally worth hearing about it if you’re even a little curious. Let me know if you want to learn more…no pressure, just the facts!”
Her favorite phrases to close a “direct message”:1) If you’re even a little curious, let’s chat. 2) I really believe this business is at least worth hearing about!”3) Let’s chat – no pressure, just the facts. 4) I made a mistake by not jumping in when I FIRST heard about this business.
Hope this helps you to ROCK your social media strategy this month! Who’s ready to take the challenge?
