Brian Campbell’s Facebook Plan Update

May 9th, 2008 posted by · 3 Comments

Last week I introduced you to Brian Campbell and his $37,000 in 10 days Facebook plan. It’s been a little over a week now and I’ve been following it closely. Because people pay more attention to lists, I’ll break it down for you in that format.

  1. The basic idea is to add at least 500 friends to your Facebook list (strangers) and create a highly populated group within Facebook using those friends.
  2. Create many more groups and target many more kinds of people (mainly those in high income brackets).
  3. Send out messages to your groups inviting them to your website/product/seminar etc.
  4. Update your Facebook status regularly and contribute to other groups your friends belong to. This will assure you keep getting noticed on the network and in turn, get traffic/exposure.
  5. Leverage the power of your friends list to create a mailing list OFF of Facebook using Aweber to market to your people.
  6. Try not to kill yourself by the amount of spam and solicitation you’ll receive in the process. I receive about 150 messages and group invites a day from my contacts. Ugh! Most of these invites are worth my time to check out, but there’s the obvious messages I get with the plain affiliate link sticking right out at you. n00bs!

Sure, this is an okay idea for some people. I don’t mind it too much, but it’s not really a surprise or big discovery as to what Brian is suggesting people do. I’ve been doing this for months already. Brian has also created a lot of MP3 recordings and videos that go into great detail on how to achieve and do what he’s suggesting. I won’t call the guy lazy at all, because he’s working his a$$ off, but it’s nothing new.

I’ll give him this though – if you’re a newbie to making money online and growing your contact list, this is a great thing. If you’re a seasoned marketer whose already established and know what you’re doing, this is pretty much extra material you can absorb and not put much thought into.

The main point – how will Brian make $10,000? Basically he’ll be reselling what he taught all of us for free to outside newbies. How clever.

Oh, another point I forgot to bring up… the premise of this whole idea is to get as many Facebook friends as possible. That’s all fine and peachy until you get this screen:

Not only that, but I received an e-mail from Facebook telling me I’m adding too many people in one day (they consider 20+ a day to be too many). Brian Campbell forgot to mention that part of the plan.

    I dunno about you, but I find all these techniques are cheap and relatively simple marketing techniques.

    I dont think these techniques could even make $3000. 😈

    I feel the same way.

    Actually, I didn’t know there was a limit on friending until Brian mentioned it. He stopped friending and asked people to friend him a while ago. Yes, he’s teaching about squeeze pages, etc. to a group of newbs — nothing wrong with that, that I can tell. His audios are 90% hot air (or 70% hot air 20% blatant sales pitch — or is that 20/70?) and 10% real meat. But look at the basic demographic he’s hitting: Students who have nothing better than partying on the weekends to do about to hit summer break (who are obviously newbs to just about everything), and people in the middle of a recession desperate for SOMETHING — even if it’s a dollar and a dream (who usually are white collar slaves and not marketing gurus), all right after most of us have received our “economic incentive” checks — Brilliant!
