Activate your Social Influence to Grow Your Business!

Join us for this special webinar edition of the DSWA's Teleclass program with the Co-Founder of PointBurst, Mick Twomey and Social Media Strategist, Ryan Harris!

Direct selling is the most social of all businesses. It was social before social media existed! Gary Vaynerchuk says “Every person in the world is a media company” ...And he’s right. We have all cultivated a sphere of influence with our friends and family over the years. Where all of this intersects is on social media – we all have trusted connections with like-minded people on social media. But leveraging that influence continues to be a challenge for most because they are not sure how to effectively manage it.

  • Is it social selling or social sharing?
  • How can you be effective without being pushy?
  • What tactics can you employ each day to improve effectiveness without spending hours on social media?

Ryan Harris, Social Media Strategist - I have been analyzing the Network Marketing Industry for the last 10 years and have been actively building a Network Marketing business since January 2009.  I have built an organization of over 2,000+ customers and distributors with a resulting revenue production of over $100,000 per month. I have been a speaker and trainer on many different corporate platforms, most recently in connection with teaching the field Social Media strategies to create systems of duplication in business.

I have learned many different skills, tactics, strategies and tips on how to become more effective in building a network marketing business.  Over the last 5.5 years I have learned with increasing size of organizations comes different challenges, excitements, and growth. Due to the increased size of my organization over the last few years, I have continued to further develop newer strategies to further add to my success while leveraging systems of duplication.  One of those strategies is the effective use of Social Media in the building of Network Marketing businesses.  We live in an every changing environment that continues to lean more towards Social Media in a business building strategy.
