What My Daughter Taught Me About Facebooks’ “Chat” online Application and Relationships.

What My Daughter Taught Me About Facebooks’ “Chat” online Application and Relationships.

Every morning before I even have my coffee, I put on my daughter’s computer. I then get my daughter ready for school and every morning while getting her dressed she asks me, “is the computer on?” and I say half-asleep, “yes it’s on”. Now as we head toward the back room where her computer is, she goes and puts on the TV for me, my station” and heads over to her computer. As I am putting on her sneakers and getting her ready for school, I look over at her and I see her on Facebook, then as each day passes I have been seeing her on Facebook again and again. So, as I pretend to be looking down and putting on her sneakers for school, I look at what she is doing on facebook and she is on Chat Online and there are 4 boxes open with names on them. I look at her friends, and I say you have 58 friends who are they. (I don’t have that many personal friends). She tells me and they are kids from school, her cousins etc…. I say to my daughter, “Melanie” why do you like facebook so much?” “You have more friends than mommy does” “What so much to like about it?” She says I don’t know, “I just like it.”


So, as I go into the kitchen, I am looking at her and her back is toward me so she can’t see that I am checking out what she is doing. She is talking with 3-4 people at the same time on Facebook Chat. She is saying hello and asking how they are and just being herself, making small talk, how are you, what did you have for dinner, what are they doing today or she getting ready to go to school , just small talk. I said Melanie, do you write on your Facebook friends’ walls, she says sometimes, “I like to talk to them” (on chat). "Oooh Ok", I asked her, who showed and told you about chat, and she said you did.” “I did? When did I show you that?”, “awhile ago”. I just pretended to go about my business getting her ready for school.
Whenever she gets on computer, she goes to her e-mail and then facebook. I can’t get her off facebook, that’s all she does. Then I had an epiphany, looking at my daughter from the kitchen, she is sharing every day, maybe just a hello or I love you, because that is her personality. She is just being herself talking to them and she is getting a response back. I thought to myself that she is interacting and developing relationships. It sure sounds like Relationship Marketing. My point is, all the while, I knew the chat button was there but had it shut off on my computer. I turned it on and people started chatting with me. I am surprised to see how many people use it. Because of the volume of friends I have on facebook, I look up their profile and then interact with them, just like my daughter does. She is teaching me Relationship marketing

Facebook Chat—a new way for you to communicate with your friends on line in real-time. (Relationship Marketing) Facebook's answer to instant messaging. IM, or chatting on Facebook. Facebook chat is already installed on your facebook account, so you don’t need to download or add any plug-ins.
After you open an account with Facebook, log into Facebook account and you’re automatically be logged into Facebook Chat so you can chat on Facebook anytime and talk with your friends, colleagues, and/or potential prospects.
At the bottom of every Facebook page you'll see your Facebook Chat tools. There are three Facebook Chat tools.
· The first of the Facebook Chat tools is the online friends tool. This simply tells you which of your Facebook friends are online right now.
· The next Facebook Chat tool is notifications which will let you know if you have any new Facebook notifications right from the tool.
· The third tool in Facebook Chat is the actual chat tool options.

It is also important to look at other platforms, like AIM, MySpace, Yahoo and Gmail. They also contain chat tools, so keep them on. I feel this will help you connect better with your friends and target market. Also, if someone may have a question, they may be able to get hold of you and get there questions answered through this type of tool and platforms.

Starting today, the more than two billion chat messages sent on the site every day can be sent from your favorite desktop instant messaging client."
AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is the first major IM platform to work with Facebook Chat. The service also works with multiplatform IM clients Adium, Pidgin and iChat.

When AIM users log in to their buddy lists, they will now see a Facebook Connect button. After clicking that button, they can link both accounts and chat with Facebook friends from AIM's interface without visiting Facebook.com. The social network didn't say if any other major instant-messaging companies had signed on to integrate Facebook Chat. “LA Times”

Remember in the Network/MLM/Internet marketing world, people want to connect with people. People want to build trusting relationships, people want to interact and also some people have a hard time asking questions. Knowing you are available on many platforms by chat or IM, may help the people interact more and help people who struggle to ask their questions, because only you will know they are asking and you can give them an answer or at least point them in the right direction and help them solve their problem/problems.
By using Facebook Chat and other platforms for instant messaging or talking “real time”, I know it will help the consumer or marketer feel better at knowing they can ask you a question, or just connect and talk to you because they want to interact and your there and available.

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives” Anthony Robbins

“Communication is the real work of leadership” Nitrin Nohria

10 Killer Headlines To Pull Your Prospects In with the Force Of A Magnet

So let me ask you a question, what made you click on the link to read this article? Think about it, with all that we’re exposed to on the internet every second of the day, the barrage of emails, articles on Facebook, and links on Twitter, what makes you decide what you’re going to look at…The Headline.

Some experts say that 90% of the effectiveness of your content depends on the headline. Funny thing is that usually we spend much more time creating and editing the body of an ad, article, etc. – and the headline or title is just created on the spur of the moment. BIG mistake. If the reader does not find the title interesting, intriguing, or at least… annoying or controversial – they will not read the rest.

Ok, so since examples are always clearer, I’m going to share with you 10 killer headlines you can use to grab the attention of your prospects. Now, there are hundreds of them, but this will at least get you started. They are in no particular order.

1. Secrets Of…

The “Secrets Of” headline will impact your prospect and grab their attention because people want to learn secrets and most people are just plain nosy. It’s like someone telling you they know a secret, you just have to pry it out of them. They will have to read on or buy your product or opt-in in order to find out the “secrets”.

Example:

The Secrets Of Successful Internet Marketers

Inside Secrets To A Successful PPC Campaign

2. How To…

The “How To” headline offers the easiest, and in many times, the most effective approach to headline creation. All you have to do is begin with the words “how-to”, and follow that up with a hard-hitting benefit(s), offers, etc… A “How To” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because it tells them they’re about to learn something new that could benefit them. The headline should tell them how to get their benefit faster, cheaper, easier, etc. If you’re ever struggling to find a good headline in a hurry, there’s no more reliable approach than the “how-to”.

Example:

How To Get Out Of Debt In One Year Or Less!

How To Sponsor More Reps

How To Get Maximum Exposure For Your Blog

3. The Question…

The “Question” headlines are great involvement devices. A question often commands a reaction from the prospect, thereby involving them in your concept, idea or thought process. Questions by their very nature beg to be answered. However, the key to using this type of headline is to focus your question clearly on the prospect.

You need to ask questions of the prospect that make him want to read on to discover the ultimate answer. Questions that are of particular interest to a targeted audience are even more involving. The purpose is to get the reader to quickly assess their situation or to start to think about their current condition. Involve them and they’ll be drawn inside.

Example:

Do Fears Hold YOU Back?

Do You Feel Frustrated With The Money You’ve Been Making?

4. The Command Headline

The “Command” headline is a directive that is used to get prospects out of their “comfort zones” by giving a clear indication of what they should do now. The actual command component of these types of headlines begins with a verb. It’s a direct call to action of some sort. “Do This” “Stop Suffering From…” “Claim Your Free Pass…” are a few examples of phrases that indicate a command.

Example:

Don’t Spend Another Second Struggling To Keep Up With Information Overload–Read This NOW!

This Is Your Window Of Opportunity. Open It.

Join Me And 3 Other Top Marketers For A No Holds Barred Training Session Tonight

5. Step-by-Step…

The “Step-by-Step” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because people don’t want to be confused. When they buy a new product or are seeking ad desired benefit, they want simple take-you-by-the-hand steps or instructions.

Example:

An Easy Step-by-Step Website Design System That Takes Newbies By The Hand

You Can Laugh At Money Worries If You Follow This Step-by-Step Plan

6. How I…

The “How I” headline will get your prospect’s attention because it’s not only showing them how to get the desired benefit, but you, the “I” are telling them and not some big corporation. It’s more personal than the “How To” headline and will draw your prospect into your content.

Example:

How I Made A Fortune With A Fool Idea

How I Improved My Prospecting Skills In One Evening

7. Truth About…

The “Truth About” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because most people are skeptical and suspect they’re being lied to by businesses. I mean, how many of us have been burnt by another person or business at least once in our lifetime?

Example:

The Real Truth About MLM Compensation Plans

The Truth About MonaVie

8. Reasons Why

The “Reasons Why” headline can work well because it promises to reveal some important information the prospect should know about. This technique usually begins with a specific number and lures prospects in with an approach that arouses their curiosity. People love to know the answers and a “Reasons Why” headline promises such answers. It’s almost a challenge to the reader—to learn these reasons and compare them with his own ideas and beliefs.

Example:

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Using My Lead System Pro

10 Reasons To Start Your Own Home Based Business

9. Numbered

The “Numbered” headline technique features a specific number as an actual reference point. It’s similar to the “Reasons Why” headline, but the number can actually reflect many unique points such as the number of secrets an article reveals, or the number of ways your customer is bettered by using your product or service. “Numbered” headlines work well because of their reference to a specific number which appears much more credible and believable to the prospect.

Example:

The 7 Secrets That Can Make YOU A Better Speaker.

13 Secret Marketing Tools That Will Help You Build Your Business, Gain More Free Time And Put More Money In Your Pocket Every Week!

10. Now You Can

The “Now You Can” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because people usually don’t have their desired befit yet, if they are even considering reading your article. Now they can learn how to get that benefit by reading the rest of your content.

Example:

Now You Can Have An Endless Supply of Leads Forever

Now You Can Have Prospects Chasing You

And because I’m so kind, here’s a bonus headline for you:

Tired Of…

The “Tired Of” headline creates a lot of impact with your prospect because people get tired of the old things in their life, the same ‘ole same ‘ole. To achieve their goals or desired benefits, people know that something has to change.

Example:

Aren’t You Tired Of Working For Someone Else?

Tired Of Just Getting By?

Use these headlines to start your own headline swipe file if you don’t have one already. Also, another great source of headline inspiration is the check-out line of your grocery store. In particular, look for magazines related to achieving goals or improving something – women’s magazines, men’s health, fitness, home d├ęcor, etc.

These headlines are written to draw in hundreds of thousands of readers. Write down the headlines you see and see if you can modify them to fit your business.
