Is This Pitching On Facebook? Should We Care?
Pitching on Facebook, if you have spent any time on Facebook at all, you have probably seen it. You know the people who seem to not know what else to do besides post their direct opportunity links every chance they get.
They crash comment threads and group pages with, “Hey everyone! This company I just joined is crazy awesome and you’re a fool not to join me! Click here!” or something like it. I understand it. Maybe they don’t know what else to do. At least they’re trying. We all have to start somewhere. Perhaps you’ve actually been there at one point.
This type of pitching on Facebook is obvious, but this is not what I want to talk about today. I want to bring up the question of whether or not posting a blog post about your opportunity should be considered “pitching” on Facebook.
In my opinion, who cares? What difference does it make if it is or isn’t. I see blatant pitching on Facebook all the time and simply scroll right past it. Why should I care? If it’s working for them, great! If not, they’re not much competition to anyone. It doesn’t bother me and it doesn’t affect what I do. In fact, shouldn’t these people be who we actually aim to help as attraction marketing practitioners?
I recently posted one of my blog posts in a Facebook group, which I do for all my blog posts, and it was deleted by the moderator because in it I cited reasons why I am happy with my primary company and made a case for joining. I was also accused of “pitching” on Facebook and that it was “in bad taste.”
Behold the attraction marketing snobs. These are people who understand attraction marketing more than you do and are quick to point out this fact any time you have the nerve to waiver from their rigid attraction marketing guidelines. They scoff at “newbies” and their “newbieism.” Shameful.
I ask, should we limit our posts on Facebook to only those that are motivational or discuss lead generation strategies? Just because we practice attraction marketing in our MLM business, does this mean we should dare not mention our primary companies?
Where do you draw the line then? Is a blog post reviewing a marketing tool pitching on Facebook? What if it contains affiliate links? Does the fact that you benefit from it negate any value one might receive from the post?
I must defer to the attraction marketing snobs for the answers. Surely they would know more so than I. Let them commit the line drawing fallacy.
So, I took a look at one such person’s blog to see just what exactly their elite posts look like. What I found was mostly motivational and mindset type posts. Great, I’m all for motivating others. However, pep rallies are fun and can get you motivated to play the game, but they certainly won’t win it for you.
What do you think? Is posting a blog post about your primary opportunity the same as pitching on Facebook? I don’t know and I don’t care.
This reminds me of something I heard Ray Higdon say recently, which is basically that he learned to stop caring if what he was doing was going to offend or upset anyone. He only worries about what works.
Agreed. I say don’t worry what others say and think. It’s your business. If you find something that works, why would you ever stop? If pitching on Facebook (or not) is working for you, keep it up. If you want to learn some other strategies that are working for me right now, ask. I will gladly help you.
