How Jack Daly got 4 gigs from 1 facebook update
Updated on July 15th, 2013
Jack Daly tells a wonderful tale of how powerful Facebook has been for him.
Prior to a trip to Toronto and then to New York, Jack updated his facebook status. Big deal, you say?
Sometimes Facebook’s basic features like status updates are dismissed as being inappropriate for ‘work’ and often overlooked entirely.
Yet as you can see from Jack Daly they incredibly powerful communication tool! Thanks again to Business Connect for bringing Jack out to Brisbane.
Watch the video to find out how this simple Facebook status update triggered messages and enquiries that led to Jack booking 4 speaking gigs in one week!
The Power of Facebook with Jack Daly
Hi. This is Jack Daly, and I’m the Sales and Sales Management Trainer, and I was relating to the group just a moment ago about how powerful Facebook is. In fact, in one case, I was leaving Los Angeles and I was going to Toronto for four days and then onto New York for one. And I just said, ‘That’s it. I’m going there to speak to business leaders,’ and when I got off of the plane in Toronto, I had updates from Facebook from my friends. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Cocktails. ‘Thirty minutes of your time. It doesn’t matter when. I want to meet with you.’ When I got on the plane to go to New York, Thursday night, I had booked three gigs. In New York, I booked one more and, when I headed back to California where I live, on Friday, I had booked four gigs in one week just by my update to Facebook.
