Yesterday I sent an email message to my subscribers about a bonus webinar I’m offering in 12 days.
There was a mistake in the message. A few people brought the error to my attention.
I appreciate the people who did this. Especially with how nice everyone was with their approach.
There’s Always an Exception
Except for one guy. He was over the top livid with the mistake AND went on to tell me what a slime bag I am.
He made it clear he didn’t like my approach to letting people know they can opt out from my list. It’s the wording at the end of the message he took issue with.
What he was incredibly angry about and basically told me to do “strange things to myself” because of it was the word WARNING! (It’s in all my broadcast messages, this one included).
He went on to tell me that I don’t care about my customers and shared with me several more of his judgements about my business ethic.
This isn’t the first time I’ve received what could be considered a downright abusive and over the top message from someone who opted in for my information. In reality, it comes with the territory.
Don’t Let One Person Ruin Things for You … Most People Are Fabulous
Thank goodness these type of messages (and people) are few and far between. The majority of messages I receive are from great folks in my community.
This is the reality of marketing online. Every so often you get a bad apple. You can’t let that stop you from doing what you know you should be doing.
But sadly, many people quit when they get a message like I got from this guy. Or they spend so much time wondering how they could have not upset one person, they forget about all the other people who appreciate what they do and what they offer their community.
The upside of this experience is my renewed commitment to sharing with my community that running a business online is not always a walk in the park. Sometimes it’s downright weird.
I’m also committed to letting my community know how fulfilling an online business can be.
With this in mind, I would love for you to accept my invitation to join me on June 22nd.
To find out more about the online business lifestyle, join me for the webinar I was telling folks about when I got the message from Mr. OverTheTop. 🙂
Webinar Will Be Recorded
Even if you can’t make the live webinar at 10 a.m. Pacific on June 22nd, I will record it. Anyone who registers gets the replay.
If you want to join in, all you need do is go here http://powerupforprofitsbook.com/ and get the Kindle version of my book, Power Up for Profits!
The book is chock full of great information on how to get the most out of your time online. Check it out.
I’m going to share with you how to manage your state when “stuff” happens. How not to let the one bad apple distract you from the 100 great people in your community. How to make sure you don’t give up because of one insult. And so much more.
I would love for you to join in.
p.s. The Kindle version is only $2.99 for a few more days. That’s 70% off the regular price. After that, it goes up to $9.99. Don’t miss out.
If you already registered, you made a GREAT choice. This is going to be fun.
p.p.s. Ironically, the guy didn’t opt out. Making sure to not engage with his energy from this point forward, I did him the favor of taking him off my list. This way, he can find someone else to get upset with. LOL
