The Marketplace … for Pro Members to Promote Offers, Content and Events

What is This and Why is It Valuable

The BestEverSocial Marketplace is an exclusive tool for upgraded Pro level members. With this, you can easily publish and promote everything you do. We've nicknamed these "OCE's" meaning offers, content and events. Then we'll showcase your OCEs both inside to other members as well out into the public internet.

As a Pro member, you can add as many OCEs as you want to attract more customers, grow your mailing lists, increase your audiences or supporters. More, there's no added costs nor do you pay us any fees or commissions for whatever you promote.  So feel free to create a whole catalogue of what you're wanting to sell and its then visible to audiences everywhere.

Understanding Offers, Content and Events (OCEs)

Let's dig into what we mean by Offers, Content and Events.  These are different for everyone.  l

Offers... are quite simply products or services you may offer for purchase. Some people publish an offer and then add links to their checkout pages to facilitate the sale or add a calendar tool link to setup a call.

Content... is simply about the sharing of information that you choose to publish in some form. There's countless options on what you may decide to publish.

Events... speak to how you may host people at something you provide. It could be a webinar, paid online event, a training program or just about anything.

So before moving on, take a moment and identify your OCE's that you could promote to the BestEver members and then broadly into the internet. Again, the choice is yours... you add your OCEs and we'll promote them to other members and on our public website.

Publishing Your OCEs

Start by clicking on Marketplace from the menu and then take a look around and see some OCEs that others are promoting.  This will give you a good sense of your ideas and possibilities.

Then click into one of the categories where you'd like to start and go to "Create New..." blue box at the top right. Here's a short video showing you what to do next.

Promote Your OCEs to Your Email Lists and Social Media

Everyone has a different goal for publishing OCEs. To make it easy for you, as you publish yours, other members can see them in the Marketplace or by opening up a list from their own Dashboard. Your own invited members also receive notifications when you publish an OCE.

More, you can easily share or post links to your OCE's into your social media or in an email.  Simply go to your Invitation page and there, we've automatically set up a section where shareable OCE links can be selected.

Make your selection and then click how you wish to promote it and it's done!

Think about how easily you can publish your OCEs and then promote them anywhere you wish in just a couple of clicks! Imagine you've using the Marketplace tool as your social media advertising agency... where you can post, share and repost as often as you wish at no cost!

Video: Now you can "See Who's Looking" at Your OCEs!

It gets better! As a Pro member, there's even a special page where you can see who in the BestEver community has viewed one of your OCEs. You'll also receive email notifications as well, reminding you to connect and followup with whoever is looking in an appropriate way.

Benefits... Growing Your Audiences, Lists and Results..

This is one of the most popular and powerful BestEver resources for Pro level member!

Here in one place is an easy-to-use marketing and promotional tool to share all you do, both inside to other members and then out into the broad web.

We automatically track visitors:

  • to show you members that are interested in your OCEs
  • to help you build an audience and a list of interested people for followup who see you as you promote your OCEs into social media, via email and online.
  • to grow an email list
  • and to sell your products and services or more tickets to an event you're hosting.

Its a very simple to use, economical and complete marketing agency available to you as a Pro member of BestEverSocial.

The Engagement Builder… for Pro Members

What's This and Why It's Important

The uses and value of the Engagement Builder are clear for the upgraded Pro member.

Understanding that “engagement” is the key to building trust, relationships and results, everything you may want to know about a member is presented here at a glance in the Engagement Builder.

Here vital information is included from their Profile, from your history of contacts and conversations that you record and from their activities, interests, their Personal Groups and more.

All of your activities and notes from previous connections are here to review and guide your next conversation.

Look Around at All It Provides

The value of ways to use the BRM are self-evident as you begin to see all that’s provided.

As you prepare to contact someone in your community, click into the Engagement Builder to see everything that may be valuable to make the conversation valuable and interesting to them.

Then, add more information about them personally, about their activities and include relevant news so that it’s there for you the next time you plan to have a follow-up conversation.

From this tool, you can also add important tags or the status of your relationship with each person so that you can filter, sort, introduce, support, and grow mutually beneficial outcomes.

Sometimes viewed as the heart of a CRM, the Engagement Builder is more about simply and easily empowering you and the people you’re connected with into having collaborative, productive relationships.

The Power Meetings

What's a Power Meeting?

We host Power Meetings to bring together members of the BestEver community in free weekly relationship building events. These occur in an increasing number of locales and always welcome guests who get to see the uniqueness of BestEver and the diversity of our membership. Unlike traditional networking meetings, we position the Power Meetings as the place you come to make a connection that sets in motion follow-up communications that often leads to new collaborative relationships. So, these gatherings are for building your “network” not for showing up, like most networking meetings, just to sell your stuff!

Best Practices to Produce Win-Win Results

Each week we encourage people to attend and seek to learn how they can support others in attendance. There’s no selling in the meetings, and we actually discourage it. Attend, make a connection where you discover an opportunity of mutual interest and then follow-up. Our Pro members are urged to set the example for others by helping everyone follow these simple guidelines and help lead the meetings.

Invite New People and Build the BestEverSocial Community

The Power Meetings are a great place to show new people the unique values and culture of BestEverSocial. Therefore, we urge all members to share their personal “invitation link” (in your “Invitation” page) with the people they know or meet to join us at a Power Meeting. As we invite and build the BestEver community, together, we make BestEverSocial a more valuable resource for everyone.

Your Personal Groups

What are Personal Groups and Why Are They Important

One of the goals of BestEverSocial is to enable every member to create their own powerful Personal Groups that represent their own unique interests. Everyone has their own reasons to bring people together. These can be business or personal, represent a topic, cause, or just about anything. This capability helps you to bring together the people “that you do life with” into your own private, safe, “out-of-the-noise” communities within the greater BestEverSocial ecosystem to collaborate, grow, support, and advance you and the purpose of the group.

Deciding on Setting Up My Own Personal Groups

We urge every member to start out by looking around at what others have already setup as their Personal Groups. There you’ll see a wide range of interests serving as examples for you to ask yourself who and what you care about yourself.

Now with Personal Groups, you have a special, safe, private place to bring “your people” together for collaboration, relationships and to  create win-win result for all.

When you start a group, you set the privacy level as you wish. It can be open to anyone to join with you, or you can require every member to be approved by you before joining.

Many members have groups that are totally “hidden” as they’re specifically for the people that the group is intended. Examples could be groups setup for a family, club, church or ministry group or even as one member has done, a group for their classmates from high school.

Should I Join Other Member's Personal Groups?

I’ll guarantee as you see groups that other members have setup, you’ll see some that you’ll want to be a part of.

When you do, simply click into the group, and ask to join.

The founder of the group will get a notification, approve your request, if needed, and now you’ll have access to some amazing BestEver people, resources, training and opportunities to meet and collaborate in an area of your interest.

Its So Easy to Set Up a Personal Group

When you’re ready to start your own Personal Groups, it's just "a piece of cake!".

Click into “My Groups” from the menu and you’ll see there at the top (left) the “Create a Group” button. Follow the step-by-step guidelines and in just a few minutes its done, published and linked to you as the founder! Bam!

Video: Inviting People into Your Personal Groups

When you start of join a group, you have a very special way to invite people into the group. First, as the leader, you can invite other members to join with you if you’ve already “connected” with them from their Profiles. This is done with your group management tools.

Then, for any group you’ve joined or started, there’s also a very convenient shareable invitation link provided in your BestEver “Invitation” page from the menu bar at the top. Here's a short video that shows you how easy it is.

Benefits of Your Powerful Personal Groups

Remember, you’re out of the noise of social media so there’s no advertising, tracking pixels or sharing of personal data here in BestEver. So, lead yourself well and make your groups valuable by starting or adding to the conversation within them.

Then, there’s so much you can do to actively engage with your members. For example, you can host group events, share your Zoom links to enable connecting, post content or images and a lot more.

Also you’ll always be informed when group members add posts, and every member receives notifications of these in their BestEver dashboard and via email so you all can actively participate.

Personal Groups are intended to help you build collaboration and community with the people you want to be engaged with in a better way. These are powerful tools to bring relationships and results together, based on whatever your goals may be.

The Dashboard… Your “Command Center”

What's This All About?

Your BestEver Dashboard is where you’ll start each time you login to your account. It’s designed to keep you informed and on track with everything going on in your account, with your connected members and provide news about the BestEver community

Your Dashboard Helps You Stay on Track

We suggest logging in every day and also urge you to keep your BestEverSocial account live or “open” in your browser. Therefor as people post to your groups, start a chat, or if news is published, or someone responds to an invitation to join or to connect with you, the information is always at your fingertips.

Best Practices for Great Results and Benefits

Clearly, in these days of “online or digital overload,” it’s important to use the tools that help you build engaged, active relationships. So, when another member who, like you, is committed to collaboration reaches out to you, it’s best to respond and interact quickly to build results.

When you see something happen or when you need to respond to someone, go to their Profile or into the BRM to setup your own personal contact reminders. The dashboard is your launchpad for everything that builds your community and success.  You’ll see that we’ve also created many in-app and email notifications to help you with that.

It’s no secret… just talk to some of the Pro level members… They’ll tell you the more you use the BestEver tools, the more you’ll build results and reach your goals. Want some examples…  just check out the “What Members Say” page on the BestEverSocial public website.

Your Profile… your “Attract” Magnet

What's This About and Why its So Important

Already you’ve seen a lot about the why and how of your Profile.  Its really at the heart of everything that brings value to you in being a BestEverSocial Member. The more you add to your Profile the greater the response you’ll get from other members wanting to meet and seek collaborative opportunities.

Here is one place is everything you want to promote about yourself, what you provide or what you may be seeking. Even included are your personal interests, what’s a great referral for you or who would be a great referral source for you.

Within your Profile, you can provide links to all your websites, to your calendar tool, add your contact details and a Zoom links and even add a personal “commercial” in the form of a warm, informative video.
