Because it sure freaked me out when I first started selling stuff online.
“What am I supposed to say?”
“What if I annoy them too much?”
Selling does not come natural to me.
In fact, I’m still working hard on it.
But I am here to say that self promotion doesn’t have to freak you out.
In fact, it’s better that it freaks you out than not.
Because that means you’re aware of how you might sound to everyone else.
Nobody wants to listen to a selfish salesperson.
I hear you.
The good news?
You don’t have to be a selfish salesperson to make marketing work for you.
All you have to do is change the way you think about marketing.
Most people want to push a sales message your way without thinking twice about what you *really* want.
That’s called spam.
Instead of constantly pushing sales messages in your DMs, try listening.
Don’t go into every conversation looking to make a sale.
Instead, listen for the problem and try to help out if they need it.
Only then will your self promotion work.
