Can you succeed on social media without any credibility?

social-credibility

One of the questions people have when they are first starting out in business is, can they succeed on social media without any credibility. That’s a very important question to ask because many people want to use social media as a platform for their products and services.

They want to succeed using social marketing because that’s where billions of people are. They want to learn what it takes to win online every time.

Unfortunately, I do not recall reading or watching sufficient content that addresses this matter. As a result, I am going to do my best to answer the question objectively and logically.

So again, the question is can you succeed on social media without any credibility. The answer is both yes and no. I’ll explain my double answer.

Yes you can: 

-if you have have a budget. You have to think of yourself as a multinational corporation. What big business do you know of that doesn’t have a marketing budget? If you’re building a business even online, it doesn’t mean that you don’t need a budget. Successful social media marketers use financial resources to expand their reach and influence. So must you.

I know what you’re thinking. You watched a video of someone who built a six figure business without using any advertising money. Well you and I don’t know ALL of what they did to build that business. So in my opinion, you need to invest some money to build your business. Especially when competition online is greater now than it was years ago.

-if you create content. ILT stands for Invest, Learn, Teach. As a entrepreneur on social media, you should be creating some kind of content that addresses the problems that people are having online regarding their business. Some of those problems could be lead generation, marketing strategies and so on. Content is king. Where do people go for content? Social media. If you create engaging content, you will be successful even if you don’t have any credibility.

No you can’t:

-if you think you can spam your way to success. The majority of internet marketers spam their links all over social media. This is not the way to become successful on social media. This tactic does not increase your credibility, it destroys it. In addition, it makes the marketer look desperate. Why would someone send a link to another person who did not request it? Social media is about being social first and business second. People are smart. They know you have some kind of business that you’re promoting.  They just don’t want to spammed with it. Spam will get your business canned.

-if you promote your company products all over social media. This part has been talked about a lot in many articles and videos. Yet, people still use this as their main marketing strategy. Most network marketing consumable  products have a similar health benefit. So people are not necessarily going to join you because of the products. They are going to join you because they like your uniqueness. Furthermore, your knowledge is what is going to attract them to you because they feel you can help them, not your product. Hope that makes sense.

In conclusion, You can succeed on social media without any credibility. It depends on the time AND money you invest in yourself and business. You get out what you put in plain and simple. Too many people expect to become an overnight sensation on social media and it doesn’t work that way. You will pay your dues especially when no one knows you.

Why marketing yourself is so important

One of your first priorities as a home business owner is to develop yourself as a leader. As you develop yourself as a leader, you will begin to market yourself as leader. It is important to understand that people don’t join businesses, they join people. If you look at any top earner online, you will notice that they do not promote their opportunity on the front line. They promote their own content that they created or another leader’s content.

The market place is crowded.

A reason why marketing yourself is so important is because the marketplace is over crowded. Networkers are competing for the attention of the prospect to get him or her into their organization. If you can show why a prospect should join you and not the next guy, you’ll have a greater chance at recruiting that prospect. Of course the prospect has the final say so as to whom he or she will join. You need a way to stand out from the crowd of network marketers who are not giving this any thought. This is very important to consider especially if you are building your business online.

Your company has been seen before but not you.

Every network marketing company has been seen before. It doesn’t matter what you’re promoting. Even if you are promoting an attraction marketing business, it’s been seen before. This is because everyone has the same funnels. However, you haven’t been seen and that’s what make you unique. You personality and professional charm will draw people to you. In addition to your compassion and servant leadership ability. That’s what people want.

Today’s network marketing has leveraged the internet.

More people are getting hip to realizing that in order to succeed online, it’s going to take more than just a link. Many business owners know that a blog and video are powerful tools that can build authority and relationships with prospects. They understand that they can achieve this better than not having anything at all. This is especially true unless they built their business offline.

In conclusion, these are some of the reasons why marketing yourself is so important. You want to market yourself in such a way that will leave an impression on a person you are dealing with, to point that he or she MUST do business with you.
