So someone stole $10 from me and I decided to go and spend $86,390 pursuing it.
If you don’t know what I mean by this – then read on…

It’s amazing how many people get triggered from people contacting them.  Yet isn’t that what you actually want in business?  People to contact you?

Sure sometimes the contact is unrequested and completely left of field and you may not have any remote interest in what they’re saying.

So why not just delete?  Why go and make a HUGE post about it in a Facebook group where you think they may have got your email address from??

I can guarantee you’ve got better things to do with your time than writing a post in a group about it.

I even wrote a report about 70 + ways to find an email address.
There is literally software out there to help you do it.

So did I spend$86,390 pursuing $10?
Hell no!

86,400 is the number of seconds you have in 1 day.  So if you spend 10 seconds recognising the communication as unsolicited – perhaps spam (but most of you get that wrong too) and decide that its not for you – delete it and move on.

Or if you must actually reply – say no thanks – and then move on.
It’s a very simple concept.

Now on the topic of what specifically is spam…
Here are some Australian links about that topic to help you work it out for yourself.

We’ve all made mistakes in business as determined by other people, from time to time, and as we know better – we generally do better.
So if the person is supposedly “spamming” you – then perhaps they are limited in their knowledge of marketing and the right way to reach out to people.
If they know of better ways – I’m sure they’d be doing it in that better way.
Some people do still teach wanna be’s that reaching out to people via private messages, friend requests and emails from comments on facebook/ social media is fine an ok.

Now – if that person has reached out to you – unsolicited – and they have a solution for you that’s perfect, is it still spam?

Ultimately, if you don’t want that message/friend request/ email – delete and move on…
It’s the internet and most of your information is so easily accessible if you know how to look for it with a good search engine search.

If you’re wasting efforts on writing posts like this in your business – what else are you wasting time on in your business?
