When to Send a Link to Prospect on Facebook About Your Home Business

when to send link to home business on facebookDo you know when to send a link to a prospect on Facebook about your home business? Because if you don’t know the right time, then they are likely to unfriend you, block you, and never take a look at what you are sending them.

Why is that?


People love to buy, but they hate to be sold.

Another thing…if they don’t have a “need” for what you have, they probably won’t ever buy from you.

So how do you find out if they have a need? When you are on Facebook, you find out what their needs are by asking a series of questions before you ever send a link.

So, when is the best time to send a link on Facebook for your home business?

-When they ask for it

-when they give you permission

-when you uncover a need they have that your product or home business can fill.

But it’s really not enough to know they have a need. You might KNOW they could use your product or service or your home business opportunity….but if THEY don’t think they have a need, then they won’t buy.

So how do you know if they have a need? It’s by asking them genuinely curious questions to get to know them. You go through a series of questions to uncover that need.   For example, let’s say you want to share your home business opportunity with them. Then your goal in your series of questions is to uncover a financial need they might have. You discover what kind of background they have, their work background, what they do for a living now, what their interests are, etc.   Here’s another blogpost I wrote about questions to ask on Facebook messenger.

Once you uncover the need, you can say something like this: “You mentioned you are looking for extra ways to make more money from home. I’m part of a home business where we have many, many people making great incomes working part-time from home. If you want to know more about that, let me know and I will send you a link some information. And if it’s a good fit, then great! If not, then no big deal.”

Or this: “You mentioned you are looking for extra income. Are you open to taking a look at a home business that could help you earn several thousand dollars a month?” If they say yes, then get on the phone with them. I wrote another blogpost on how to do that.

Keep it simple and casual, low key and no pressure.

Never, ever send a link to your home business, or product or something in your first few messages to someone. You will get much further with your prospect if you take a little time getting to know them, than if you just blast them right away with links to your home business opportunity.

So when they come to you with a need, you are in a much better position at that point to be able to help them and they’ll be much more likely to join or buy from you.   If you end up verbally vomiting on them in Facebook messenger or heaven forbid you post a link on their wall, they are going to turn away from you.

Be genuinely interest in helping them and getting to know them, before you send them any links.

    It always surprises me how many people try to send you a link, or add you to a Facebook group without asking permission. I don’t think people intend to be rude, but they just plain are. How do you handle the intrusion Sarah?

    Hi Kevin,

    I agree with you. When someone sends you a link without your permission, you can actually turn the tables on them (in a nice way), and actually start prospecting them, and sometimes recruit them into your business. The people who send links without permission are usually beginners, or if not beginners, then usually not very successful in their businesses…which often means they don’t know what they are doing. So let’s say you just meet someone on FB and they send you a link…you could actually respond back in a couple different ways: 1) “How is this method of marketing working out for you?” or 2) “I usually don’t join anyone in business until I get to know them first.” And then start asking them questions about getting to know them.
