Facebook Wall No-No’s

In the Home Party Business?
Some things you should NOT post on walls:

-Don’t try to close a sale
-Don’t pick a party date
-Don’t nag about them for not responding, not booking, not calling
-Don’t go into details about any business transaction(s)
-Don’t openly manage your team member(s)
-Don’t post too many ‘commercial’ messages about your business in a row or too many times in one day (this is the fastest way for your friends to ‘hide’ you in their feed)
-Don’t hostess coach in detail (like posting: “How many guests do you have coming?”)
-Don’t clog up your own Wall with too many game/Facebook application updates/posts. (note: doesn’t mean you shouldn’t play, just means that once a day go look at your profile and clean it up by deleting unnecessary game/application posts.)

The Wall is there to build relationships, to get people interested in you and what you do.
If someone starts asking for details about anything, including wanting to have a party or be a representative, respond with  “Check your inbox” and send them the response as a private message. Again, once you get an interest, the conversation should go to ‘Inbox’ and sent as private messages.

If you are building a team, your team members become more responsive as your postings project you as a trustworthy, knowledgeable and supportive person. Use their wall to build a relationship with them, mostly in the form of comments and posts that are of encouragement, boosts and genuine personal interest. Never correct in public, or publicly manage them, remember, inbox them!
