When Alex Mandossian challenged me to double my list in ten days last October, I imediately thought about creating an event on Facebook. I planned a teleseminar on one of my more popular topics, affiliate marketing, about a week later, and then spent many hours inviting all 4,000 of my friends to opt in to be able to hear this call.
Several hundred people did sign up, and I learned how to do this even more effectively in the future. Plan your teleseminar event about two weeks in advance, talk about it on your wall with status updates, and be sure to send out new invitations to those who say ‘maybe’ or do not respond at all to your invitation the first time around. This can be time consuming, but well worth it in the long run.
This will also help you to see which of your friends is really a prospect for you, or just someone who is no longer active on Facebook. Build excitement around your event, have something ready to sell, and you’ll be plesantly surprised at the results.
