I know that I can come across as what some may call “harsh” at times. I don’t really mind that, and I believe that “harsh” is actually just “to the point.”
The truth is that I’m not going to stand by and let people think that unsolicited sales pitches, a.k.a. old style telemarketing that is somehow being used in our modern social media world, is going to get them anywhere. I don’t care if I get blocked; what I really care about is that you don’t invest money and end up hating yourself because your “techniques” aren’t working.
All I’m doing is asking one very simple, yet pressing, question.
“Why didn’t you get to know me first?”
Does that sound harsh? No. Does it sound confrontational in the face of the millionth person asking me to join a 90 day hair, skin, and nails challenge? Yes. Confrontation isn’t bad. If you go about it the right way, it helps people identify what they may need or want to change. Mark my words: You are not going to get very far by doing this:
Random: Apparently September was my month to get #allthepitches. Anyway…
I want to know why people defend these messages by use excuses like “I’m just trying to make a living” or “I just wanted to make a new friend.” Really? Because I don’t reach out to new “friends” by asking them to buy my stuff before I even know anything about them.
My plea is that people stop running from the truth. Stop blocking me because I called you out on the crap that your upline or sponsor telling you “works.” It may work on one out of every 500 people. And I know what you’re thinking: “that’s one person, though!” Ok, fine – that’s one person for a sale or to join your team. I guess that means your “build a six figure business while your kid naps” theory is flawed, because reaching out to hundreds to people and getting one person to take the bait isn’t exactly efficient, eh?
Plus, the legalities of soliciting a pregnant woman to take 90 days worth of vitamins without even disclosing the ingredients immediately shows just how far and low you’re willing to go to make a sale. Careful there, dude – someone could sue you over the implications of suggesting what goes in a pregnant woman’s body. But you wouldn’t know that because your sponsor likely hasn’t educated you on the legal practices that come with owning a business.
The fact that people block me over asking a simple question speaks volumes. The system does not work. When I believe in something, I defend it. I don’t run. If I truly believe in my business model and my marketing methods and the products, I don’t get defensive and block people. Simple.
I encourage you to take a look at what you got yourself into and figure out if it’s really for you.
