    Whatever you decide will be the right decision.

    What is your plan after you set-up the page?

    A MLM business can take advantage of Facebook business pages, Facebook groups, live videos, and ads.

    But you have to know what you want to achieve and your step by step plan to make it happen.

    Otherwise you can waste a lot of time going in circles with halfbaked projects with no real goals.

    It depends on your approach and how you want to go about.
    Anyway, having a fan page will help you keep track of your
    prospects and also easily promote and pass information to
    them.

      Building a fan page could also get information passed on to your cross lines which most people don't want to happen. They like sticking to their group of down lines. What is going to be the purpose of the fan page? I'm sure the network marketing business already has an official page where members and prospects meet.

    Start with one or two social outlets at first. This method can be time-consuming before getting results. Your initial efforts should be simple and duplicatable; focusing on generating leads and earning money through more immediate marketing channels. Generally, it is never a good idea to mention the name of your MLM company until prospects are deep within your marketing funnel.

    You can start a FB Page if you have the right intent.

    Like other Pages in your MLM niche, comment genuinely on updates and Like updates. If you give freely, definitely do it. If not, don't bother, because the only way to GET prospects through a Page is to GIVE hours of service and help to other people, just like any channel online

    Before making a facebook page please list out the things you would like to do with the page and ask yourself whether is it going to be effective for you?

    You can start with Facebook but there are many platforms other than FB that you can explore.

    It depends. Probably not. The problem with having a Facebook page is you can have thousands of fans, but none of those folks get your updates. You have to pay Facebook to show ads to your own fans. I would instead build your own platform that you own, such as a blog.

    Even YouTube and podcasting are much better than Facebook in my opinion.

    You might want to switch to GROUPS.

    FB pages' reach has been deprecated BADLY by FB in recent years

    You should start a FB group instead of fan page.

    And why do I say that in case you and other guys reading this might wonder?

    The reason is very simple.

    MLM - similiar to internet marketing and traditional offline business - is about getting as many people to see what content you put out and offer you recommend eventually.

    If you just put up a fanpage, you can only rely on 2 types of traffic: your FB or online friends to make up the numbers or run FB ads to get more exposure.

    However before doing so, you need to have a clear idea of whether your target audience is interested to see your content and offer related to what you intend to promote.

    If most of your friends are interested and buy from you, I have nothing to say.

    Same as if you are targeting the RIGHT people when running FB ads although you need longer time and bigger budget than just setting aside $5 a day to run an ad for 1-2 weeks.

    But when it comes to groups, it is a different story.

    1. The traffic is FREE

    2. Most people you are sending to into your group are laser-targeted.

    But for that to happen, what I will suggest is to find and join groups related to your internet marketing offers.

    Such as health supplements or other products like investment.

    Then introduce yourself and provide valuable feedback to the group so as to build trust and rapport with those group members.

    Before adding them as your FB friends and sending them an invitation to join your group.

    Now when you have a FB group, you have a super-targeted audience who will know, like and trust you if you know how to do it correctly.

    And once you do so, you can send them to whatever content they like to see be it fanpages, your group FB posts, articles, blog posts or Youtube videos with your links at the end of description to funnel them into your MLM sales funnel.

    This is my 5 cents worth of advice.

  • Personally I'm using a group and a fanpage for my MLM activity and so far the group is by far better. As per concept, MLM is about friends and social activities, being why the groups work great with this type of target.

    Important is to have your group objectives clear, try to get other networkers to be active on the group and the rest will follow slowly.
