If you watched my Webinar on how to use Facebook Group to find clients, then you are hopefully doing a few new things.
1. You own a Facebook group by now.
2. You are stalking the groups you do not own.
3. You are running Facebook contests like a champ!
In order to apply these three strategies, you MUST use your personal Facebook profile. Here's my personal profile (feel free to friend me).
If you are using your personal Facebook profile it means people are going to PM (private message) you via Facebook. Trust me, they will. They are going to ask you questions about your group, they are going to want your services, they are going to have contest question, etc.
Of course, by now, you know how to check your Facebook emails. But did you know that Facebook has this ridiculous thing called your "Other" folder. Sometimes people, who you are not friends with, will PM you and their message will go into the "Other" folder. If someone is NOT your friend they are probably potential client!
What is even more crazy is you CANNOT ACCESS this folder from your phone! Isn't that crazy!
Here's what you need to do to get to your other folder:
Login to your FB account from a computer.
Top right click the mail icon (circled below).
Then to the right of the Inbox click OTHER.
It is important to check this folder at least every few days.
Odds are, if a potential client PMs you THIS is where the PM will go.
So I'm curious. How many emails were in your Other folder? Where any of them important? Please post your answer below by commenting.
