I have a lot of friends on social media who sell things. They sell Software, hosting, books, Services, course, etc… you name it, I have a friend that sells it! You probably know what I’m talking about, because that probably happens to you.
you get those annoying event invites and then you have 63 notifications about an event you didn’t even know about
you are added to a selling group by someone who starts marketing to you, and you had no interest in their product
… or worse yet you are added back in to a selling group you left, because adding you once wasn’t enough.
there is that one friend you unfollow that is so obnoxious with her obsession with her product. Seriously man, get a life.
YouTube Tips For Marketing Your Business Using Videos
Inviting people to your group without asking. Very few people are enthusiastic about being invited to selling groups or events on Facebook without being asked, especially when you don’t talk all that much. Selling groups are amazing when you do them well, but not when you randomly start inviting people.
Posting about nothing but your product/business on social media. No one wants to be friends with that person who is obsessed with one thing and doesn’t have any other interests. IT doesn’t matter how great your product is: it’s not a substitute for a real personality!
Making your list of 10 friends, then cold-selling them. This is s sure-fire way to create come real bitterness and resentment between you and the people who used to be your friends, before you tried to treat them like dollar signs. Hint: enjoy your friends and treat them like you would before you started selling.
Give unsolicited advice, with your product as the solution. Here’s one example. My friend suraj asked me about running a blog after checking my blogs and few other peoples blogs. So, I gave him tips about blogging including my service now he have his blog up and unning . He helped me getting few more clients .I wasn’t marketing to him, just told him about my service . No pitch or sale offer – just sharing(only told him name ).
If you’ve done all of these things, there’s hope for you yet. You can still fix your business and turn it into something that’s a hugely profitable venture for your business, without having to focus on people management and recruiting.
