There I was, up late one night and my Facebook messenger lights up.
You know…that “ping” sound.
On some levels it’s kinda exciting.
It feels like somebody “swiped right” and whoa…I gotta message.
And there she was.
An online marketer.
Making nice-nice and telling me my Facebook profile was “intriguing”.
== I messaged back…”thank you”…
She was like…”I love your content!! It’s SOOOOO engaging!”
== I message back…”uhm, I like your content too. So what u up to tonite?”
She be like…”couldn’t sleep. It’s late here. (pause) Do you mind if I ask what you do?”
== I message back…”not at all. I help committed entrepreneurs get to 7-figures faster than they ever thought possible.”
And by this time there’s no doubt in my mind this is a poorly trained (entrepreneur, marketer, home based prenreur — pick your poison) who has never been taught to build TRUE rapport (or at least buy me a drink first)…
Because she then shared how she worked with xYz company and it’s crazy new AND on fire and is endorsed by Dr. Smorgasborg from Poughkeepsie University and would it be OK if I sent a short video of what I’m up too?
Ok so look maybe you’ve been ‘hit on’ by this type or maybe you’ve been using this tactic but lemme tell you it doesn’t work.
Well, lemme re-phrase that.
It does work.
Problem driven marketing is the name of the game so while you were busy studying the ingredients of your thing, trying to memorize the steps or talking to your dinosaur coach or team, my crew was out kicking ass, solving problems and taking names.
And after I slide over a drink coupon I’d love for you to check this out…right here…for F.REE…
