Compliance Tip of the Week

Marketing and Social Networking go together like peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, biscuits and gravy… it just WORKS. These days, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and other blogs and forums are THE place to get the word out about your business. Let’s just lay a few ground rules first, ok?

►No selling, people! You can tell the world about your PlanNet business – our product, the mission, the opportunity - you can prospect and support your team, but please don’t do any actual selling on your profile or page. If someone is interested – they’ll let you know and you can give them your phone number or email address so you can connect and talk more!

►Use YOUR name! Don’t put “PlanNet Marketing” as the name on your profile or page. We want you to identify yourself as a PlanNet Marketing IR or Rep, and you can post about PlanNet – but please use your own name or your business name.

►Keep it Clean! Remember you’re representing a fabulous company. A professional company. A business. We want the world to take us seriously. Please avoid inappropriate conversations, comments, images, video, audio, applications or any other adult, profane, discriminatory or vulgar content.

►Follow the Rules! If you get an email from me, or anyone at PlanNet, asking you to remove something from your social media profile or account – please take it seriously and courteously comply (and then tell us you did so we know it’s fixed). Also, if you see something on social media that you think maybe shouldn’t be there – send a private note to the Rep and recommend they fix it, or at least suggest they ask me about it to make sure it’s approved.

Following these simple guidelines keeps PlanNet Marketing – and you – compliant and ensures a professional and appealing business appearance.
