A Little Disappointed

Last Update: May 08, 2019

I don't know how to feel about this...

So I joined or should I say was invited to join a facebook group for helping to promote online business and get advice and some extra feedback on my website. I sent them my link for my baby site in which I have a work from home post for moms and a widget with a nice baby pic for the free 7 days and 2 free websites...

When I received feeback from one of the owners of the FB page/group I was told that promoting Wealthy Affiliate just screams desperate..... Well.... I have a whole other website dedicated to just that so how am I supposed to feel about this information?

I couldn't voice how I really felt because I didn't want to be rude seeing as how I asked for advice so I just said thank you and left it at that.

I also had someone on that same feed invite me to join clickfunnels which I thought was kind of rude seeing as how I just wanted a little feedback.

How would you respond to this?

Leave the group, and not respond, obviously it is for clickfunnels be careful of joining any marketing group most of the time its for their own marketing group related to marketing other affiliate programs especially clickfunnels. Its a very expensive program and a lot of up sells. I know I cant afford it. Most have success with organic traffic and social media, like twitter, IG, YouTube, Pinterest. I steer clear from FB groups. You can get the ban from some groups if not careful.

LOL, this is a funnel group from a moron obviously. His/her whole purpose of the group is to degrade other programs and push their own as a better alternative. Clickfunnels is a great program, don't get me wrong but it's expensive and overkills if you are just starting out. You can do the same job with a blog and autoresponder if you apply yourself to training your brain. This party was acting like a bully trying to make you back down and cower to their insight with a baseless accusation. There is nothing desperate about promoting wealthy affiliate but his/her tactic was desperate and tasteless. I would have told them exactly that and accepted being banned from the group lol.

Thank you. I haven't been back to the group board since. I just didn't feel good about it after that. And although the link I received was from someone else, It could have been a marketing tactic. I'm not good with social media, and just didn't like the way he said it screamed desperate. Not a good feeling at all. Thanks for the reply.

The bottom line is that the owner of the group has final say as to what is permissible in his/her group.

Your intent was altruistic. I wouldn't let it bother you. Just chalk it up to experience and move on.

Take a deep breath and just let it go.

We're going to run into all kinds of people from one extreme to the other.

I'd leave that group if you haven't already and continue working on your website(s).

Have a great week!
