Over the last 8-10 years, Social Media has drastically changed the way that the direct sales industry works. Gone are the days of hanging books on strangers front doors, or having 30 women to your house to look at plastic containers. (By the way, both of these methods still have great merit, but now there are other ways).
Especially with the advent of Facebook and the other “big” platforms like Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter, more and more direct sellers are taking to these platforms to share their products and business opportunities. And these can be great areas to promote, except when they aren’t.
We all have “that friend” that is constantly posting things like “Buy my X product and I will earn a trip” “I have been challenged to sell X before midnight tonight”, and slowly but surely, we either block or unfollow those people, because really… that is not what we are on Facebook for.
However, there is the opposite side of that equation, and this is especially hard for bloggers. There is a feeling that they can’t SHARE their blog posts or excitement, because they will be seen as that spammy friend. So, I am here to tell you – SHARING good content that will help people is not spammy – it is helping.
So, because I love a good chart – here is Hope’s things that are safe to share and not be spammy!
At the end of the day, promoting your business IS a part of who you are and it is important to share that with our family and friends. But by doing it in a way that shares information and adds value to your community is a way nicer and less spammy-saurus way to do it.
