I was Monkey See, Monkey Do…
I was in a maze, the labrynth, with no map to my happy ending…
What I didn’t know was hurting me and my business adventure…
I was blind, now I see…
If your in network marketing, sales, direct sales, mlm,
If you call it “sharing” or its “sales” …
If you have to do something, move product, click a mouse to get paid…
What we are doing or not doing affects our month end in a positive or a negative; in our pay stub, our current relationships, and our future relationships…
Why can I share this out with confidence and conviction… because it was once me, as it may have been once or still is you.
There is a better way, the right way.
I needed to understand this, really get this… I get “but I was just sharing… but ” It was still spam!
It didn’t matter if I knew all the ingredients of my products and the wonders of the..
It only mattered if I listened with care and attention to detail.
Only when I listen can I understand.
Only then could I show that I care.
Only then could they be ready to hear what I have to offer as solution and ideas!
I am hearing daily by other marketers/sales/sharing:
The biggest cry, largest plead, hugest complaint is…
I want more folks to talk to.
I want more sign ups, team mates, and more sales.
And they don’t know how, they don’t know a different way, a better path.
That is why so many spam…
(we are gonna get into exactly what I mean by that in a bit)With everything that I do, I am always solution minded. That is how I was open to be educated the “right way, a better effective way” for those online, in a storefront, or from their living room… in marketing and sales.
Do you love your life like I do?
I’m always open to connecting with uplifted & sunshiney hearted women – those who love life and enjoy helping others succeed! And if you’re not completely in love with your life, that’s even more of a reason to connect so I can help guide you to the Sunny Side of Life.

It’s Not Just You
I have chatted with many ladies online of almost every company under the sun, the majority of them when we are chatting “How are you doing out there?,” “Is your business headed in the direction you want it to this year, this month?” “Are you where you want to be with your rank or sales?” they respond “Perfectly Happy, Right on Track, Nothing Could be Better!” I am thinking Great!!
A day came for me … It was not a very fun day was there when I said to myself … What I am doing, everything that I am doing isn’t working “as intended.” Yes, I still love my primary company, but the effectiveness of what I was doing online/how I was doing it online and off line was not getting me the results I wanted in my bank account anymore.
At the beginning, folks like sheep – we jump in, running around, sheep of many colors from all over the continent, having fun, some jumped out, some stayed in, some disappeared in the night, some a wolf got, some stayed, some fell asleep, it was so much FUN … and I do much of my business for Fun, but I also need a bit of money for time exchanged… and as the months passed, the $$ was less. What I was doing, how I was doing was less and less effective.
Add to that … I learned about SPAM … not the fun stuff you can fry up with mustard which tastes great with home made white bread … Oh … Ya… that fun stuff… No … the other NOT fun stuff, SPAM … the stuff that makes your friends and family roll their eyes, scroll by, click off, close ears, some even unfriended me, Me… Yup … it happened! I am all up in my housecoat in the mornings, sipping my coffee reading about spam early spring of 2015, thinking… nah… that’s not meant for ME … (chuckling now as I type this)
Now… plainly I am sure you all can see … I’m a different “Me” with my online presence… I am not only happier because I am learning, but I can tell you this, Its WAYYY more productive to my bank account, and all of those I work, play with and interact with.
The ones who just want to do it their own way, never want to learn… yet always tell you they are busy and overwhelmed are probably going to stay that way, but for those whom are looking to do better, be better, will find a way. I found it, so can you!
No one wants to be called a mlm spammer…
But today I am going to share with you how you could be, or how to help someone you now can identify with. (and yes, some of these were me months and months ago, p.s. I am sorry!! Really Sorry!).
And once you understand that there are things you do that could be labeling you as a Spammer..
You can take steps to change those behaviors (# 4 & 5 was me, and it didn’t work!).
And if you would like to learn better ways to build your business, we need to chat!
Do you know the acronym, KLT?
That’s short for Know - Like - Trust. I enjoy getting to know women who want more out of life. I like to create friendships & truly deepen a connection, to get to know, like and trust those I might consider to team more closely with.
YOU MIGHT BE A SPAMMER IF:
(or now can identify if you have been exposed to a Spammer)
1) You first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity.
2) You get angry replies via private messaging and/or you have been reported as a spammer.
3) You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media posts
4) You compulsively want to talk about your company or products, without anyone asking you really to tell your story; to share.
5) You use your personal Facebook page as your platform to sell products, even posting a link to your website … saying once a day or more… BUY ME, TRY THIS, I’M ON SALE etc.
Finally… this one is the most important one…
6) You engage in interactions online, with a hidden agenda, hoping to transition the topic to something that would get people interested in your opportunity, without caring about knowing the other person.
Or any time you respond to something that is totally not about your business even remotely but you feel compelled to talk about your business in the comments… it’s Spam! (it doesn’t have to be with a link to be Spam)
Now some of these have happened to me, some of them to other team mates and have read about them…
What if you discovered a better way, an effective way where Folks came to YOU… You didn’t have to chase them or hook them in like Little Bo Peep and her sheep. When you sat in the field with the gate open and they all came to you like the Pied Piper because they wanted You, sought You, your solutions and ideas, your products, your business, your teachings… it’s real, real as the sun and the moon… it’s not a fairy tale!
I hope you found value today, please feel free to drop a comment / share my blog post forward. If YOU are banging your head, if you’re not getting the results you seek, it’s because something just isn’t clicking. **Or perhaps, if you are feeling stuck, frustrated or unhappy with your current situation, Let’s CHAT; DON’T lose the Dream!
P.S. People often ask me; Roxanne I can see you LOVE being a “Cheerleader” in all women’s lives; BUT what is it you really do? To answer that, I use social media platforms to market trendy highly consumable products that YOU shop for every week! Most women don’t go far without their phones & do A LOT of online shopping so I help empower, support & teach women who “want a bit more in life” do the same. More Sisterhood. More Tribe. More Fun. More income within Social Retail ..
