The Marketing Lesson I Learned From Being A Grinch This Christmas


Am I alone at feeling irritated when Christmas merchandise pops up the day after Hallowe’en?

The reason I feel irritated is it just feels like too much, too soon.

In short, too pushy!

In applying this to how we market our businesses, there’s a great lesson here.


Pushing for sales online can push our prospects away!



Sell, Sell, Sell doesn’t work online – it’s about getting people to know, like and trust you.

Building visibility, likeability and credibility are pre requesites for successful social selling.

Are you pushing too hard on social media or other online spaces?

What could you be doing differently?

Tell me!
