How To Get Your FaceBook Friends To Stop Ignoring Your Posts!

Do you write amazing content, post sexy selfies, or upload epic videos to your Facebook, just to have your friends scroll right past it?

Now if you’re not a marketer then this post doesn’t really matter… if you’re just posting selfies/viral videos like everyone else on FB, guess what… you will be ignored!

Here are a few tips I’ve learned over the years to get more likes, comments, shares AKA eyeballs on your posts… if you’re a marketer and you are using to build awareness of your new book or product, you want all of your FB friends or fans to see EVERYTHING you post!

  • The first rule is pretty basic. If you don’t want people to ignore your posts, you can’t ignore their posts either! When you scroll your newsfeed, like and comment on relevant posts. If someone got a new job, started a business, got engaged, be engaging! (No pun intended lol) But if you want people to pay attention to your posts, pay attention to their posts.
  • Loosen up a bit. If you are talking to your Facebook friends in a tone that makes them feel like they are only a customer or client, they won’t respond to your posts. Use their first name, say “YOU” etc… but focus on the people not your product or service… use attraction to pull them to ask questions about your products.
  • Make new connections. If people are frequently engaging on your FB posts, you want them to continue engaging with you for year to come! I typically message them and say something simple like “Hey there just wanted to reach out & let you know I really appreciate you supporting my posts everyday.. looking forward to your future posts as well!” Just something simple like that to break the ice.
  • Use images that catch the eye, invest in graphic design for your photos and fliers. Use PicMonkey or similar sites/apps where you can add font. This is great to add quotes, your domain name, or edit the picture.
  • Ask your audience questions. This can be done thru private FB messages when you are getting to know a new FB friend. By asking questions, you learn what problems your target audience has. Then write an article like this, or record a video that solves your audiences problem. That is how you get paid! Solving problems. Bonus tip- Ask questions in a FB post.. this will obviously increase the amount of people who comment and engage. When people like/comment on your posts, they are more likely to see your next post.

Just remember what Gary V says, Jab Jab Jab, right hook… what he means by that is give, give, give… value, something for free, then hit them with the right hook (ask for sale)

Hope this article gave you some ideas to get more eyeballs on your future Facebook posts!

Remember the ‘social’ in social media…

Remember the ‘social’ in social media… it’s all about engaging with others.

Treating it like a pissing contest with your old sponsor, people who quit yo team, ex’s, or people in other companies doesn’t count as being social..

Instead just cheer your competitors on and get back to dominating!

Only post when you have something inspiring, important, or valuable to share w/everyone.. don’t just post to “get likes” or “generate a lead or sale” because people can smell desperation a mile away..

Remember folks: “People don’t care how much you know until they knows how much you care.” -So engage on their posts.. get to know them.. follow up w/them until you are blue in the face or they block you Lol..

That’s all I got! Until next time, enjoy this extra sexy Joe Stewart selfie! 😀

Also be sure to buy my book here!

Turning Skeptics Into A Volunteer Army of Raving Fans

Hello! It’s Joe…

I remember when I first started writing this book over 4 yrs ago.

Joe Stewart, MLM, create your own economy, network marketing, author
Create Your Own Economy By Joe Stewart

I really just wanted something I could hand to prospects/skeptics so they could get a better grasp on our industry & make an informed decision.

The original cover was ugly so I had to have that redone a few times, although they say don’t judge a book by it’s cover, unfortunately most do.

My original vision of it being a simple tool for my prospects has become so much more.

Nothing beats getting a message from someone saying they got their first customer by using something I teach in my book.. that is what keeps me going and motivates ME to learn more.. write more.. teach more.. become more.

Everyday I wake up and login FB to see someone else got a copy in the mail and uploaded a selfie with it lol.. each time you guys do this someone else sees the cover.. they either judge it and buy it or don’t.. either way.. it’s like a domino effect.. everyone wants to take part in the movement and it won’t slow down anytime soon.. just wanted to say I appreciate each and every one of you guys who have showed love.. shared my book with your team or FB friends & fam..

I truly have the BEST volunteer army on the planet and couldn’t spread the word at this speed without you.

Other than my supporters.. wanted to say cheers to my haters.. I know you won’t upload pics or show public love but talking behind closed doors is still talk.. still helping me out etc.. so keep up the great work ya’ll.. just be patient.. so much more is coming! 🙂

Jstew’s Winter Blogging Break

Hey what’s going on my friends and fans!

Hope all is well with you…

santa claus model
Well hello! 🙂

I am just writing a quick blog post for you guys since I haven’t been active on my website for the past few weeks.

Every year I usually take most of December off (from blogging at least) to spend time with family and friends, get ready for Christmas and get all my shopping done early.

We’ll call it my “Winter Blogging Break.” 😉

Although this blog that you are currently on is well over a year old, I have had many other sites in the past.

Some are still here with us today, others are resting in peace :p haha

The point of that rant is that my blog traffic always drops during December


Check out this post by fellow blogger Jon Morrow.

What… would you rather me lie like a lot of online marketing ‘goo-roos’ and tell you I quadrupled my web traffic in the month of December and sell you a webinar explaining how I did it for $297?

People are busy this time of year. They have family from out of state in town, or they are traveling a lot themselves. Trying to get all their Christmas shopping done whether they shop on or their local Wal-Mart… they are busy, and don’t have time to do their normal Google searches where they find my blog or yours. 🙂

Just wanted to update everybody! I appreciate all the Facebook messages and replies on here asking me where I have been for these past 2 weeks… I am still here! Just taking a MUCH needed break.

Now don’t get it twisted, just because I took a break from blogging a few times per week doesn’t mean I took a break from my primary businesses. Business is booming. We are in the middle of a huge launch right now and our team has gone from 3 members to 63 in less than 2 weeks all with:

-No paid marketing

-No Blogging (obviously)

-No harassing friends & family

-No cold calling

-No shenanigans

So what have I been doing these past 2 weeks that caused our new business to BOOM?

-Updating my Facebook status

-Talking to people on Facebook chat

-Reading a book for 30 mins/1 hr per day and reading the news or my favorite blogs

Yes those 3 activities are far more profitable then chasing friends and family, blogging daily, cold calling people to invite them to your weird hotel meeting for a business opportunity.

If you want to connect with me and learn my Facebook Cash Secrets, add me as a friend and follow me here.

If you want some more information about the launch me and some millionaires have put together for the community, secure your spot here for FREE while you can!

I hope all of your Christmas shopping has been stress free so far! Are you spending too much time looking at price tags? Maybe you need to start a home business or e commerce site so money is no longer an issue.

Again, add me as friend in the link above and secure your spot with my new team… period.

Merry Christmas! Happy holidays! Enjoy this time of year!

ViSalus & Business For Love Hate Relationship?

So if you follow most of the top income earners/corporate staff for some of the bigger direct sales companies you probably noticed one of the biggest social media meltdowns of an MLM company for the year 2013. The sad part is, this company and SOME (not all) of their top earners/corporate people is always caught up in some sort of drama…

I posted this as my Facebook status the other day and feel it sums up the whole situation:

“Keeping Up With the ViSalian’s should be TVs next big drama hit… anyone agree? 

If I offend you, unfriend me!”

This caused a few laughs and pissed some people off but hey… one thing you will find about me is that I am always blunt and to the point.

Here is what caused ViSalus’s #9134676461564631297 Social Media Meltdown of 2013:

ryan blair business for home
U mad, bro?

People ask me how I get sales in different programs, or even recruit people into volunteer armies like USA Assoc. It’s very simple…

I always tell it like it is good or bad and people respect that nowadays. I have never been intimidated to go head to head with top earners, CEO’s, whoever, if they are running around acting like kids…

So here is what makes this post funny.

When Business For Home writes a positive article about ViSalus like all the articles I’m going to link to below:

The list goes on by the way of positive articles about ViSalus… the positive articles actually outweigh the few negative articles published on the site.

When Business For Home publishes that ViSalus does something GREAT, guess what?

The founders, top earners, and “challenge promoters” share that article ALL over Facebook, Twitter, anywhere they can show their friends and family just how legit ViSalus is.

But the SECOND they write how a few top earners leave to join a new company, all of a sudden is a fraud?

Sounds like a love hate relationship to me…

In America, you are allowed to do as you please. If you want to join ViSalus, awesome! Go for it.

If you join ViSalus and weren’t happy with the product quality or other issues you may have found, leave! Go join a new company! This IS America, isn’t it?

Why would Ryan Blair or other top earners get mad when 2 out of the 100’s of people they have earning 6 figures quit? It’s only 2 freaking couples for crying out loud…

vi til i die
Til Death Do Us Part

I know the founders are obviously “Vi Til I Die” as they made it very apparent after this massive social media meltdown. Although they are usually a pretty well oiled PR machine, the youth of the founders definitely showed after a few more of their top leaders jumped ship to a competing multi-level marketing company.

Just last month the MLM company Ocean Avenue filed a lawsuit against ViSalus for alleged espionage and theft.

Now this is not to bash ViSalus they have a pretty cool company and culture for the most part… but this is a business not a drama TV series. I mean if I was the owner of a big bad billion dollar company I really wouldn’t give a shit what the little bloggers like me are saying about your company… unless business isn’t as big as bad as it used to be?

Ah yes… their sales are WAY down and over half of their distributors have jumped ship.

Business is a roller coaster guys don’t worry, I’m sure everybody will come running back to try that new $100 per month Vi Crunch ‘super cereal’ 😀

“Cause many people think it, I just had the guts to say it” -Ludacris

Leave your thoughts and comments below… good, bad, constructive criticism is always welcomed!

Oh and don’t call my website a fraud… I have a right to free speech and can and will say good/bad things about companies as I see fit.

For example, if Ryan Blair would have posted something like “Best wishes to the two top earners who left ViSalus today, I hope you are happy with your new company.” Guess what? I would have wrote a completely different article…

Leave the PR to the PR department, leave the drama for the Kardashians… can’t we all just get rich from home without all the hate?

What is Facebook: Is it the Most Famous Social Network?

What is Facebook: Is it the Most Famous Social Network?

facebookIndividuals, of all different ages, enjoy meeting and communicating with other internet users. Despite the fact that individuals of all ages use the internet to socialize, there are certain groups of individuals that do more than others. Those groups of individuals include students, both high school students and college students. For that reason, it is only fitting that there should be a social networking website that has a focus on these particular individuals. That networking website is known as Facebook.

So What is Facebook?

Facebook has become one of the most popular social networking websites over the last few years passing up Myspace and most of Facebook’s competition. That popularity is mostly among high school students and college students, mostly because Facebook focuses on these individuals in particular. With Facebook, you are required to register for a specific network. That network can either include the high school or college which you attended or are currently attending.  Once you have joined the website, you should easily be able to make contact with others who are in the same network.

Facebook: The Pros and Cons

The network in which you join can be considered an advantage of Facebook, as well as a disadvantage. Facebook does not work like most other social networking websites. Instead of being able to communicate with all site members, you are limited to contact with those that are in your particular network, the high school or college you that selected. The creators of Facebook state that this is for your own safety. Although it is safer for your profile and personal information to be viewed by a small number of individuals, you may not necessity want it to be that way.

Although a large amount of focus is placed on high school students and college students, Facebook has added another popular feature to their website. That feature is workplace networks. By joining a specific workplace network, you will be granted access to other community members who work for the same company as you. This feature is nice, especially since many companies have become large corporations or expanded across the country. You may be able to make contact and become friends with a long-distance coworker that you never knew you had.

Another aspect of Facebook that you may find inconvenient is their lack of available information, before you decide to become a community member. You should easily be able to obtain additional information on Facebook, before making the decision to become a member. This additional information may include how Facebook works, why you should become a member, how the invite process works, and general rules and restrictions that are in place.

If you are interested in joining the Facebook community, you should do what you should do with all other social networking websites, research.  By taking the time to research and examine everything that Facebook has to offer, you should be able to decide whether or not this popular networking community is what you were looking for.  There is a good chance that it will be, but if not, do not worry. There are literally an unlimited number of other social networking websites that you can join.

I hope you have enjoyed this article that talks about what Facebook really is.

My Radio Interview with Syndicated News about MonaVie Case

My Radio Interview w/ Syndicated News about MonaVie Case

Hey everyone, Joe here with a quick video of a recent interview I did with Syndicated News.

I was contacted by a reporter from this news site and she wanted to do a brief interview about a case in court involving leading health and nutrition MLM company, Mona Vie and one of their top income earning distributors.

Judge says “NO” to MonaVie about stopping former distributor Joe Licciardi from posting statuses about his new home business on FaceBook.

MonaVie just lost a devastating landmark case. Joe Licciardi agreed to sell the Monavie in exchange for specific commissions based on his amount of sales. Once the sales were made however, Mona Vie changed the rules.

Disillusioned, Former MonaVie Black Diamond Joe Licciardi began promoting an additional MLM and posted his messages on Facebook.

Monavie responded by suing him and the case wound up before U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups, who in a landmark decision ruled that Monavie’s expectations of its independent distributors is too broad and vague and unenforceable.

The ruling caused many more of Monavie’s “Black Diamond independent sales force to abandon ship.

A lot of their former 7 figure distributors left Mona Vie to promote competing health and wellness MLM companies such as Visalus, Jeunesse, EPX Body, and many more.

Let me know what you think about the interview!

Social Networks: Stuff You Shouldn’t Post on Social Networks

Social Networks: Stuff You Shouldn’t Post on Social Networks

social network

Social networks on the web have truly exploded, especially over the past couple of years.  Social networking websites are becoming very popular because they are simple to use, easy to find friends and family, connect with old friends, and develop relationships with other social networkers, often ones that share the same interests as you.

To find those individuals, you first must join a social networking website and create your own profile. It is often advertised that your social network profile is the key to making and finding friends online.

Are Social Networks Important?

As previously mentioned, your social networking profile is important when it comes to meeting other internet users. This is because other internet users are looking to chat with someone who has the same interests as they do. Without your own personal profile, it would be difficult or impossible to tell what your interests are. That is why social networking profiles are not only important, but they are needed in today’s tech lifestyle.

When it comes to social networking profiles, a lot of focus has been placed on what you should include in your profile or display on your profile. It has been said that pictures produce the best responses, as well as detailed personal information. Although a picture and personal information may help to increase your page views, you may be getting views that you do not necessarily want. Despite what you may believe, most social networking websites do not have restrictions on who can view your personal profile. In fact, even those that do not belong to your online community can easily see profile.

Be Cautious on Social Networks!

Since anyone, literally anyone, can see your social networking profile, on most social networking websites, you are advised to be cautious. Essentially, this means that instead of focusing on what you should put in your online profile, you should be focusing on what not to put.  This is one the best ways to protect your safety, both on and offline.

As previously mentioned, pictures are often recommended with social networking websites. If you are interested in positing a personal picture of yourself in your online profile you can do so, but you are advised to carefully choose that picture.  While you will want to look your best, you are advised against posting a picture that is too revealing or seductive in nature.  Most internet users can look at these types of pictures without feeling a thing, but for others these types of pictures spell danger.

profile picture

If you make the decision to post a picture of yourself in your social networking website profile, you need to be careful about the rest of the information that you post. Although you may not necessarily think about it, a picture is just a picture, but combined with your name and address, it could be a deadly combination. You are advised to only post your first name in your profile. This will make it more difficult for anyone to try and contact you off of the internet.

It is also advised that you carefully choose your location. A large number of online social networking sites require that you select a city, as well as a state. If it is allowed, you may only wish to list your state and not the city. If you are required to list the city and the state that you live in, you may want to think about using a nearby city or town, especially if you live in a small town. If an internet predator wanted to contact you and you lived in a small town, it could be fairly easy for them to find you. That is why it is advised that you carefully select the answer to the location question.

In addition to the above precautionary measures, it is advised that you do not post detailed information on your children, the location of your home, your income, or when you will be leaving for vacation. By keeping these and the above mentioned points in mind, you should be able to enjoy online social networking without having to always look behind your back.

I will see you at the top…

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.
