Using Social Media for Networking
How to Build your Professional Network and Connect With Influencers on Social Media.
With Using Social Media for Networking, you’ll get everything you need to create your own webinar, workshop, lead magnet, or paid product that helps people use social media to network with colleagues, potential clients and partners, and influencers.
Here's why you need to teach this topic...
Because the most valuable asset in your business is the extent and depth of your relationships.
And the quality of your business network is all about who you know, who knows you, and how much they like, trust, and relate to you.
Social media helps you achieve that level of relationship.
Sadly, most business owners still view social media as a way to market themselves and their business. Or they see it as something that's just for keeping up with friends or browsing through cat videos.
But it's called ‘social' media for a reason. People are there to interact with others who they are friends with, who can help them, or who have something interesting or helpful to say - on all sorts of topics.
That makes social media one of your most valuable sources for expanding your network of professional relationships… if you use it the right way.
In our brandable, ready-to-teach course on ‘Using Social Media for Networking', you'll teach your clients how to use social media effectively to achieve their professional networking goals.
You'll show them best practices for initiating and developing relationships with people they want to connect with. And you'll share ways to keep that momentum going in the future, so that they gradually build the know, like, and trust that's essential for any successful business.
Best of all, you'll get all the materials you need to deliver the course!
Just brand and customize the content for your market. Then convert the documents to pdf and use the slides to record videos, give presentations, or run webinars or livestreams. It's up to you, your business content needs, and your imagination.
Here is your roadmap through the course:
[Check out the Module Overviews below for more details on what you'll cover in the course.]
Our ready-to-go program is divided into separate modules so it can be quickly broken up to deliver sections over time – to avoid overwhelm and give time for implementation.
And everything is editable and rebrandable.
So you can go through it yourself if you want to power-up your social media networking skills,
AND, you can use the same materials to help your audience.
That's because when you purchase a license to our customizable (PLR) courses, you get the rights to:
- Edit the content any way you want
- Put your name and brand on, and
- Repurpose it into whatever media you want
Then use your new course to…
- Attract a flood of leads for your other products and services
- Expand your reputation as an expert with online courses, webinars, workshops, videos, and more
- Provide resources for your clients to help them get results (and win their lasting devotion)
- Create a nice new income stream with a paid program (it can even run on autopilot)
You'll be helping your audience use social media effectively to achieve their professional networking goals.
And…. you'll be adding a major asset to your own business (a course!) that will take it to a whole new level too!
Here's what you'll be teaching...
There are 6 modules in the course, with individual lessons, an introduction, and concluding action plan. The course can easily be delivered as a self-study eBook, membership site resource, online course, live workshop, or any other way you want.
Here's a summary of each module's learning outcomes:
You'll start out with the benefits of using social media to grow and nurture a professional network.
You'll also give an overview of the course and what your students will learn, so that everyone is excited to jump in and get going.
Module 1 – Identify Your Social Media Networking Goals
In Module 1, participants will identify their primary goals for professional networking, regardless of where they're doing it, so they have a focus in mind before creating a social media networking plan.
Module 2 – Set Up Your Social Profiles for Success
In Module 2, participants will then select the best social networks for their goals, so that they're not wasting precious time online. They'll refine their social media profiles to reflect their core message and business goals, so that any new connection can quickly understand who they are, what they do, and the value they offer.
Module 3 – Pick the Best Social Networking Tactics for Your Goals
In Module 3, you'll cover effective methods to build new and existing relationships on social media, including how these integrate with other methods, depending on current relationships and professional networking goals.
Module 4 – Start Networking…the Right Way
In Module 4, participants will identify specific people they want to connect with online, both new and current contacts, so they'll start social media networking with quick wins. They'll prepare different messages and content for initial outreach, depending on their goals and the social platform, so they can catch people’s attention and start off relationships on the most relevant track while keeping an open mind to other opportunities.
Module 5 – Create Your Systems for Growing and Nurturing Your Network
In Module 5, you'll show your students how to create a system for tracking their network of relationships and how they're interacting (online and offline) so they can follow up appropriately, decide on next steps, and continue to build relationships. They'll create a plan for continually finding new contacts through social media and developing relationships with them.
Module 6 - Next Steps
In this final module, participants will have the opportunity to review the course and plan future action steps, so they can achieve the goals they set for this course.
And here's all the content you'll get!
Contents are delivered as .docx, pptx and .xls. Images are .pptx, .pdf & .png.
Here are a few ideas for using your content...
If your audience interacts with people, then this is a must-have skill!
If your audience never interacts with a person ever, then this is superfluous to their needs.
Building a network with social media is a modern skill that's essential to everyone.
Using Social Media for Networking is completely focused on how to use social media to expand your networking of professional relationships.
Power Networking for Results is a broader course that focuses on networking with a specific goal in mind, such as to find JV partners, job opportunities, clients, donations... or any other result you're looking for with your networking. It covers a step-by-step process and a range of tactics. Social media is just a small part that's not covered in-depth.
So our course on Using Social Media for Networking would be a valuable add-on, bonus, or upsell course for Power Networking!
Yes... Absolutely! You can use the content to teach yourself, and then be the case study of your own course! You'll find your audience connects with you better when you've been through the same experience they have!
Here at Content Sparks we've given you everything you need to run your courses online virtually. However, you'll find the content is easy to adapt to an in-person training with some simple replacement of the virtual logistics, group coaching, or live seminar. Many of our clients do amazing in-person events with our course kits, and you will too!
FAQs about White Label Content
Your license gives you the rights to edit or cut up the content into sections, combine it with other content, or transform it to other media formats (such as audio, video, graphics, etc).
You can then share or sell the content with paid customers or prospects who have given you contact details.
The exception is the content meant for promotion, such as tweets, blog posts, and graphics. You can publish those freely anywhere on the web to drive traffic to your site and offers.
You are not allowed to sell or give away a license or the editable files to anyone else. That means you can NOT sell or share the Private Label Rights (PLR), Resell Rights, or Master Resell Rights to anyone.
Also, you are not allowed to publish the content freely on the web where anyone can read or download it, including free membership sites or forums. The exception is promotional materials, as mentioned above. This protects the value of your content.
You have the option to rewrite it if you choose, but it is not necessary. However, we recommend that you rewrite and add to any web-based content that you want found by search engines (like Google), so that it will rank higher in search engines. Adding value to existing content is also important, such as additional images, examples, stories, or lists of resources. By adding your own personal examples and experience, you'll boost your reputation and credibility exponentially.
Pricing your content is always a challenge and it depends on your own market. Some people charge $97 for a webinar series. Others add it to a $27/month paid membership program each month. And some have charged as much as $1997 for a full training program with coaching added.
Take a look at what competitors and similar businesses are charging in your industry. Then find your own middle ground based on how you want to position yourself.
We recommend that you never charge less than $27, depending on the length of the program, and charge more if you're adding live or video elements. Charge even more if you're adding coaching.
We have a number of tutorials and videos in our blog, as well as a list of our favorite resources we use in our own business.
