Hi, friend. Welcome to the social selling sisterhood podcast. I am Lindsay Dollinger and I have many titles High school, Spanish teacher, dog Mom, world traveler and direct seller. I empower women to run your direct sales. Business is the right way so you can earn the money. You deserve to live the life of your dreams and travel the world. Now we got that out of the way. Let's get started. Hey, girl. Hey, it is Lindsay calendar of the social selling sisterhood podcast. And I am here for a literally the super the most quick, um, biz tip Thursday ever. There's, like, some shenanigans going on in front of me. I don't even know what is happening. Okay, I'm driving while I'm doing this. And this girl just threw her headphones at the car next to her. Okay, I don't There's there's some things. There's some things. Okay, Alright. Anyway, so my quick connection to before you afford to day and I just kind of gave it away because I said it's a connection tip. But even while you're listening to me, I would like you to pull open your Facebook messenger. Pull open your Instagram Messenger pull open text messages. Whatever you use to, um, you know, to connect with people right now sends a message is I want you to pick five people that are your customers, or you would like them to be your customers and and and in some sort of message. Hey, someone's always thinking of you. Happy Thursday. Are you doing anything fun this weekend? Um, I mean, it can literally be anything. My tip for you is if it's someone that you haven't talked to you for a while. Um, and you're not really 100% sure what's going on in their life. I would pull up their profile or what not to check and make sure that, like something catastrophic, didn't just happen in their life. They didn't lose a loved one or lose a pet or anything like that. Um, because that's probably not the best time to be like Happy Thursday. How's your life going? Right? Um, so, you know, pay attention to that. Another thing that I like to do is I and I do this a lot when I am, like multitasking, waiting for things when I'm in the line at the drive through all those sorts of things is I pull up in my messenger at my Facebook messenger up and, um, on the bottom, right, and this is I'm speaking from an apple. But in the bottom, right, there's a little button that you can see stories and I quickly scroll through people's stories and I don't just like them. But I comment something meaningful, and I actually start a lot of private messages in conversations with people through stories. Um, so while on that, if you are not active in stories and a big thing with being active in stories is to not just be like posting your products and your stock pictures all the time and stories. So one of the things that drives me nuts is when I'm looking through someone's stories, and it's literally all products like there can't be people looking at your story and interacting that way that's so spammy and an authentic, and I don't get to know you at all. I'm learning more about a product, so make sure you're not just sharing your products and your stories. Can you have a poster to about them? Sure, but I want to see like your life. I want to see the behind the scenes. I want to see her for a baby. I want to see your work. What's the weather like? Where you're at, like all those sorts of things are like behind the scenes, right? It's like your reality show and your reality show guys just like your brand is not your product. So anyway, that stories. But stories are a really great way to get in people's messenger, and then it shows Facebook or instagram Hey, their friends, their messaging, each other. Uh, and it helps the algorithms so that those people see your posts a little bit more. You can do the same thing with I G as you're scrolling through, you know, down there at the bottom of stories when you're watching and it says he send message, send a message, right, interact with people's stories. Um, and then you're gonna start seeing those stories more often in your profile as well. So that's my connection. Tip for you for the day you stories use messages. Make this part of your d m a d m o. Make this something that you start doing as a habit without thinking like when you are at, um, like you said, like a drive through when you're waiting in the car for someone to come out. Heck, this can be your toilet time. Everyone knows that you have your phone in there but being intentional about what you're doing with social media, what you're doing with your phone and how you're connecting with not only existing people in your life but how you are making connections with people that you haven't talked to in a while or brand new people is so important for moving your business forward. Sales is all about relationships, and we have to start there as a building block. All right, friend, I hope this helps go make some more connections, do the thing. You know what you need to do in your business, girl. You've just gotta do it. Have a great day. Talk soon
