Using Facebook Messenger To Help You Follow-Up
Facebook Messenger is a powerful social media tool that can help with your Avon business.
Are you tired of forgetting to follow up with people after your initial conversations?
Do you struggle to keep track of your contacts and their respective deadlines?
Look no further than Facebook Messenger, the perfect tool to help you follow up with ease and efficiency.
Facebook Messenger Can Help You Follow Up, Stay In Touch, And Make Them Feel Valued
Facebook Messenger can help you do a better or more effective job of doing the things you should already be doing.
With Facebook Messenger, you can keep track of your conversations all in one place.
And the best part? It’s completely free and easily accessible from your phone or computer.
Facebook Messenger Makes It Easy To Keep Track Of Conversations.
Instead of searching through a cluttered inbox, Messenger organizes your chats in chronological order.
You can easily see the last time you spoke to someone and pick up where you left off.
It maintains a great history of your conversation and relationship there in one thread, so you can easily go back to see what you said last time.
Plus, you can customize your chats with emojis, GIFs, and stickers to add a fun and personal touch to your conversations.
I love using social media tools as a way to follow up with prospects that I meet out there in the real world.
So when I meet someone at a Chamber event and we’ve made a good connection, I immediately add them as a friend on Facebook.
Then you can send them a Facebook message with information about the very thing you chatted about at the Chamber mixer.
Create Group Chats With Facebook Messenger
Another great feature of Messenger is the ability to create group chats.
This is perfect for following up with a team or a group of contacts all at once.
You can easily keep everyone on the same page and track progress as a group.
Make Phone Calls or Video Calls
Did you know you can use Facebook Messenger to make phone calls or video calls?
This is a great feature that is particularly useful to make it feel more personal.
You can also just send audio messages.
When you send an audio message, it adds a personal touch and a warm connection with your prospects. It’s really easy, and it’s a very effective way to follow-up.
Stay Connected Anytime, Anywhere
Finally, Messenger makes it easy to stay connected with people even when you’re on the go.
You can access Messenger from your phone, tablet, or computer, so you never have to worry about missing an important follow-up.
More and more people are shying away from email. But they do have their phones on them, and are more likely to see/respond to a Message on Facebook.
Messaging apps are fast and intuitive. The responses you get are short and easy to read. And people like using them!
Share Your Facebook Messenger Direct Link
I bet you didn’t know that Facebook Messenger provides you with a direct link you can give out so people can message you. I just learned this recently.
It takes the prospect directly to your messenger inbox to send you a message.
The link you can share with your prospects is m.me/[insert Facebook user name]. So for me, that would be m.me/lhuber – pretty cool, huh!
This can be used either for your personal profile or for your Facebook business page.
Your business page is a great place to carry on these conversations with your prospects.
Facebook Messenger Has So Many Benefits For Your Avon Business
Using Facebook Messenger allows our prospects to get to know us quickly by snooping on our Facebook profiles and learning how they can trust us as a credible leader.
And… it gives us the ability to snoop on them and see if they might be a good candidate for our business.
Facebook Messenger is immediate, and it’s a way to respond quickly to our prospect’s needs and questions, providing tools and resources and providing that “high tech/high touch” value to them quickly.
When we use voice and video options to talk to our prospects, it helps us really stand out in the crowd.
It not only helps them feel more connected to you, but they can hear the sincerity in your voice and build rapport through our conversations.
But remember… when people send a Facebook message, they expect a quick response – there’s nothing worse than having to wait hours for a response.
So, if you haven’t already, make sure you have the messenger app on your phone. This will make it easy for you to respond quickly.
Stay on top of your messages by checking Messenger throughout the day.
Also, be aware that Facebook will filter messages into a Message Requests or Filtered Messages folder if you’re not already connected on Facebook. So be sure to check that too so you don’t miss important prospects who have reached out to you.
If you aren’t familiar with the Filtered folders in Messenger, you can find them by going to the menu bar at the bottom of your Messenger app (Or click on the gear icon on your desktop app) and clicking on the “people” tab.
From there, you will find your “message requests” and “filtered messages.”
With its organizational features, group chats, and accessibility, Messenger makes it easy to stay connected and follow through with your commitments.
All of these things can help you stand out from the crowd. It can help us build professional rapport with our prospects.
Standing out means going above and beyond the norm.
So why not give it a try and see how it can improve your follow-up game?
And then, if you want your prospect to really feel special…
Send your prospect a birthday card, congratulations card, holiday card, and product samples.
These things will really make your prospects feel more “cared for” by you.
