Spam? What is Spam?

Spam.  It is more than canned meat.  I like to think of Spam as anything that a network marketer does that turns off a prospective customer or a friend.

There are several types.

  • Posting so many ads that your timeline has very little of the real you.
  • Posting ads that are just like everyone else, especially if you post it in the same day as the person you "borrowed" it from.
  • Making friends just to send an introduction private message about your company instead of introducing you.
  • Posting ads making fun of the people who are still undecided.
  • Every time you connect with your potentials, you are putting in a plug for your company.
  • High jacking some else's post by putting an ad or your link in the comments.
  • Wishing someone a Happy Birthday on their timeline by giving them a discount at your business.  
How is the best way to avoid being spammy?  Instead of thinking of new ways to promote your
business, think of what irritates YOU in how others promote.  If something irritates you, then it probably irritates your friends, which is not what you want to do. Treat your friends as friends, not as your next meal ticket.


  1. Here here!! I can't believe someone would post a discount to a friends b-day! That is pushy. Good advice, if you don't like it don't do it!!

  2. Fantastic post! You know how much I love spam πŸ™„πŸ˜‚
