Well That Was Unpleasant . Got My Second Hater!

Last Update: July 07, 2020

They say you haven't made it to the big time in online marketing until you have haters, well I'm moving on up because I got my second one ever a few weeks ago❗️

I am making light of this but to be honest it was quite a shock to see it in my Messenger inbox.😲

A lovely “gentleman” and I use the term loosely, messaged me to tell me that I am wicked for telling people that they can get traffic and sales using FB organically because it is all bull💩. And furthermore that asking for $7 to tell him exactly how to optimize his FB profile and start driving traffic to do just that was highway robbery❗️

For anyone else who doubts that you can make money using organic FB traffic, below are my Stripe payments for last week, no outlay on adverts, all from free organic traffic.

I do practice what I preach and that was true passive income, in that I did not speak to these people. They sourced my offer(s) through my FB profile header. Yes I spent time writing posts, building my profile, commenting and friending the right people.

As I have said before, and as we all know, passive income comes AFTER you do the work.

I have spent a lot of time, money and effort learning social media marketing and I know it works. I am proud of the offers I am associated with and having someone say everything I stand for is "wicked" was disheartening, to say the least.

Anyhoo onwards and upwards, I am sure there will be more haters as time goes on.

Have you had haters❓ How do you deal with them❓

I almost want to laugh at the idiotic attitude of some people - seriously I just don't get why anyone would bother to send someone hate mail if they aren't personally threatened.

You are clearly a crook emptying their bank accounts at the exhorbitant amount of $7.00 at a time!!! What a petty mind your hater has.

But I think you are correct in saying you need a few haters (aka known as envious-idiots-who-fail) along the way.

Full steam ahead now.


PS I'm still mulling over the glass of wine we had on our "date" ;)

I know right ... only 999 sales to go this month and I'll be rich 😂
That wine must have had plenty of time to breath by now Lawrence, perhaps you need a fresh glass 😁

Leave it with you buddy, no hard sell here!

I can't say I have any... yet. I imagine there will be a few in my future. I don't really know if I want to say, I can't wait or I hope I don't get any... LOL!!

I sort of want to congratulate you but at the same time don't. You probably know what I am trying to say here.

Either way, keep going the way you are. Apparently you are doing something right. Because passive income shows it.

Thanks Bob, yeah I think it just comes with the territory, as others have said it's no biggie, we just smile and move on.

I'll have to remember that when I get my first hater... LOL!

People are crazy... some of them anyway.

Never let it bother you. I have gotten emails, comments, and reviews of all kinds - most good - some not.

Yet I always look at patterns.

If I have 100 people rating my courses (or whatever product, content etc.) as 4 to 5 out of five and one or two that rates it a 1, do you think I care? Nope.

Now on the other hand if a majority are all saying there is a problem - well that needs to be looked into to see if there are improvements that can be made.

Patterns are what matter - comparative analysis. Not one or two haters every now and again, which will happen.

Best regards,

Very sound advice.
HeidiY Premium
Very true LD, if I was getting them every day I would definitely be worried about my content and how it was being portrayed. You can't please all the people all the time and you'd go mad trying I reckon 😂

Initially, it can knock the wind out of your sails, some folks can be quite cutting in their responses. If we back ourselves it can turn the tables, a bit of written sparring can build confidence.

Good move, replying, and blocking. We do not have the time to waste on people who have undue and ill-founded issues.

You will be stoked with the results that you are creating, Heidi.
HeidiY Premium
I am happy with the results so far, still a long way to go but having a clear direction helps. I really only replied because it feels rude to not at least acknowledge someone, but he was blocked shortly after.

Not everyone is right for what we offer and that's OK, I couldn't work with someone like that anyway so he was never going to be a client 😂

Squeaky wheels are definitely more trouble than they are worth getting to recognize folks that will cause headaches is a skill that is worth its weight in gold.

I find people generalize their hate without specifics which means its about them not you. I am always astonished how much energy people spend on things they don't like.

My response is generally "interesting thanks " unless its constructive and then I'll dive deeper. However being rude is a no no. You catch more flies with honey.
HeidiY Premium
Yep and that was the thing, obviously he is struggling and I could have helped him out with what I provide for free but he messed that up 😂
