Building Your Business On Social Media – Tip #1 Intent

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media are great tools to build your business. The biggest problem is that they can be a huge distraction!

I used to aimlessly scroll through my facebook feed and like and comment on random posts. That’s good because you do need to engage with your audience, but before I share what works and before I show you different strategies, I want to emphasize the most important thing you must keep in mind… FOCUS!

I call this having an intent.

Doing something on purpose.

Success is not accidental, it is intentional.

When it comes to using social media, the most productive activity I’ve found is meeting and talking to NEW people period.

Building long term relationships is a secondary activity to getting business now.

So with that being said, if you are going to use social media to build your network marketing business you have to set an intent to do certain activities.

The example I like to give is, have the intent to talk to 10 new people everyday… depending on your hustle it may be more or less, but regardless, have an hour of focused activity where that is ALL you do.


Set an hour of focused activity where all you do is talk to new people.

During that hour of focus, you don’t write status updates, you don’t scroll through your newsfeed, you don’t go out to add new people to your friend’s list, you simply focus on talking to new people…

Similar, you can have an hour of intent where all you do is go out and find new people to add to your friend’s list…

My mentor Ray Higdon says it better on this post:


See you have to know what is the least amount of work you have to do before you go do “other” stuff.

Talk to 10 new people before you start scrolling down your newsfeed, makes sense?
