Marketing your business on social media is a lot like boxing: you can’t always go for the knockout on your first punch. This keynote talks about the psychology behind selling your business and how you can put your business in the best position to succeed on social media.
For a Q&A session, Jeff had asked me to promote his business redmonekyfoods.com on social media. I liked his hustle, but he pulled a 19 year old dude move.
Trying to close business on the first transaction is a huge mistake because you can’t just right hook without any jabs. I did like his hustle and it was the right move for him to come to my keynote and learn how to execute the right way.
I know I talk about how my first business was starting a lemonade stand, but in reality my first business was going into people’s yards, stealing their flowers and going to their front door and selling it back to them. I do have to admit once I was like Jeff, I was “Gangster”, but Jeff could have executed this business move a different way. He could have used my tactics from Thank you Economy. Jeff could have approached it another way: if he would have seen one of my tweets about steak, he could have sent me a spice that would have paired well with my steak. Then I would have tweeted about it (his business), but now he fucken blew it, but there are a lot of other pretty girls out there. Jeff if you are reading this the next time you go to the social media bar don’t be a douchebag don’t pull a 19 year old dude move.
