In this post I will be exposing to you the techniques I use in getting a lot of people to request my friend requests.
Some might ask me why they would need a lot of friend requests on Facebook. The reason is simple: the more people who request you on Facebook the better the chance you have of connecting with them and ultimately to convert them to leads, prospects, distributors, customers and even business partners. So you can see how having a lot of friend request is good for your business.
4 Cool Tips to Attracting A lot of Friend Requests
1. Have an Attractive Facebook Profile
In the post, How to Create An Attractive Facebook Profile, I dealt exclusively into having an attractive Facebook friend request. Do well to check it out. It could make or mar your success on Facebook. The more attractive your Facebook profile is, the more your potential of people wanting to connect with you.
2. Have Inspiring Posts on Your Wall
Because you are a home-based business person, you want to have posts on your friendfilter wall that is in line with what you are.
It’s not right for you to have posts like
“I feel hungry right now”
“I want to feed my cat”
“My spouse has offended me and I’m feeling very bad”
It’s not right to have such on your wall. So you ask me the kind of posts you should have on your wall. Simple! Posts that can inspire people. A good one is having inspiring quotes on your wall. Quotes have such powerful effects on people.
The good thing is that quotes are all over the internet
There are several sites on quotes, simply type ‘quotations’ using Google search box.
The only thing you have to do is simply go to these sites and get the quotes to paste on your wall.
Some of your friends see these posts and click ‘like’. Some comment on it and it is seen by their friends who then would love to check you out.
3. Make Thoughtful Comments on Other People’s Wall Posts
When you see posts that you love made by other people, don’t be one of those who would simply put ‘Great post’, ‘nice post’etc. Rather be the one who would choose to contribute value to the discussion. Be thoughtful about the comment you put out. Write two to three lines of thoughtful comments and I assure you that a lot of people will take note of you.
4. Join Relevant Facebook Groups and Add Value
Because you are an online entrepreneur you would want to join relevant Facebook groups. You would not join groups about cooking, politics, music etc. I advise you to join groups that are related to Internet Marketing, Network Marketing, MLM, Home-based businesses etc. Those are the groups in your niche.
You then go ahead to contribute positively to them. This is not the right time to litter the groups with your business opportunity links. It is an opportunity for you to add value to these groups.
