By now, you must know that I love sharing real-life examples of what I see other entrepreneurs do. Either sharing the great stuff or lessons to learn.
Someone I know, let’s call him an acquaintance, who I always thought of as fairly “successful” has taken to pitching to me through private messages on Facebook.
To listen to the audio (Episode 54) version of this training, click here.
Here’s how the thread typically goes:
Him: “Hi, Kate. How are you? “
Me: (I’m thinking he wants to connect) “I’m great. How are you?”
Him: “I’ve been checking out your website and social media and thought you need to purchase my course.”
Me: (My first thought is that he is a stalker! And I don’t bother responding.)
Now, this person has done this several times. I can’t imagine that this style is working very well for him. First of all, he hasn’t created any connection with the person he’s reaching out to (which in this case, was me). Secondly, he hasn’t shown any real interest in the other person. I think you can imagine that the rest must go downhill from there.
Use Facebook messaging wisely to build connections instead of destroying them.
Here are a few other things to avoid:
- Don’t add people to your Facebook groups without their permission (it’s annoying) (big hint: when someone leaves your group, don’t add them back in without asking)
- Don’t tag massive groups of people without their permission (it’s annoying)
- Don’t add people to your email lists without their permission (it’s annoying)
Get the picture?
Social media is great, but you must use it with caution. You can either turn people on to you…or turn them off. Your choice.
